Call me Contessa. Forget my name, you couldn’t pronounce it.
I’m a professional chef—actually, I’m the LeBron James of chefs. Bobby Flay, Gordon
Ramsay even Julia Childs have all been my students, and that’s just a few. I’ve
probably forgotten more about the culinary arts than any chef alive has
learned. I was in the thick of things when today’s conventional culinary
techniques were first being developed. You ever used the three basic steps in
dicing an onion? Prego. That was me. Ever heard of clarified butter? Bingo. Me
How can that be? I was born in Genoa, Italy in the year of our Lord 1642. That’s
right. I’m an Eternal, a creature of darkness, a vampire…and I’m obsessed by
what I cannot eat. Food.
Ironically, I’m the star of my very own cooking show on the Foodie Culinary
Channel. My dream job! Where I get to create the recipes I adore and share them
with my audience and one lucky dinner guest. Which is where my troubles began.
And will end.
I was caught partaking the red jungle juice from the neck of my dinner date. I
was threatened, attacked with Holy water, and finally blackmailed by my
mild-mannered joke of an Associate Producer. As it turns out, she isn’t so
Now I have two choices: turn her into a child of darkness or risk exposure to
the human world.
I’m thinking there’s a third choice. His name is Rocco Guadagnino
[Review — I adored this book! It’s a quick read and more addictive than my
husband’s four-meat marinara. Fast-paced, quirky dialogue and a sweet
paranormal romance, Midnight Delight will delight your reading taste buds. I can’t
wait to read the next installment in the series!]

About Cadence Denton

Cadence’s love of books began in elementary school with
Nancy Drew mysteries. By high school, she was immersed in Jane Austin and
Georgette Heyer. So, naturally she wrote dark (and light) paranormal romance,
gritty hitmen contemporaries, and time travel. A daughter of the South, she lives
on the banks of the Mississippi opposite the oldest settlement on the river
where she shares her writer’s cave with four dachshunds and a slightly ditzy
cocker spaniel. Visit her website for deleted scenes, character genealogies,
