Wicked Night
by Evi Rhodes


GENRE: Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy



Follow the journey of a strong, independent, yet caring woman as she navigates the supernatural world she is thrust into. Gwen steps out of a dysfunctional family life and into a world filled with danger she never realized lives at every turn, fiery passion, and a love that is ever binding. How will she handle her strange new surroundings as well as the man with the intense and overbearing personality who threatens to destroy the emotional barriers around her heart?

Wicked, the next in line to become the vampire king, is caught off guard when he grudgingly agrees to take on a charge, something he never wanted to do. He is unsure how to handle the fierce and vibrant woman with the unsettling green eyes. It doesn't take long for them to clash, but will it end passionately or burn down around them?



Wicked stood in the darkness staring at his soon-to-be charge and felt like a deer in the headlights. He couldn’t take his eyes off of her and just stared, blinking with wide eyes.  
“I didn’t expect you to be so beautiful,” he whispered to himself.  He was late meeting her but he could not face her yet, not until the blood in his veins cooled and his breathing returned to normal. The last thing he needed to do was make an ass of himself by acting like a high-school boy hyped up on hormones.  He had never in all his 148 years felt this kind of draw toward anyone. He had the strongest urge to reach out and touch her hair, to whisk her off her feet into his arms and kiss her until their lips hurt and she breathlessly begged him to stop.  His blood felt as if it were boiling in his veins as the image of this woman in his arms flickered across his mind. 

Out of the blue, she laughed aloud, seemingly for no apparent reason, but it was almost his undoing. It was like she was purring in his ear; he could feel her breath against his skin as if she were standing right beside him.  He growled under his breath and then turned around and closed his eyes as he ground his teeth together in response to his body’s reaction. Good God, he wanted to march across the short expanse separating them and do something that he would definitely regret later, like push her up against the wall   and take her right there.  He could picture ripping open her jacket and lifting her off the ground . . .



Writing This Book Has Taught Me:

How to be brave and it has taught me how to share a piece of myself with those that read my work and to be okay with that.

I’ve always been a more private person and didn’t use social media or share much about myself with anyone, not even close friends. I actually had a momentary meltdown when my book was finally published and put on-line for sale; I wanted to scream, no take it down before the excited finally set in. I barely slept that first week Wicked Night was available and my heart races whenever I see there is a new review. I don’t think I’m alone with this feeling, it’s terrifying to put yourself out there for others to judge. Yet, I felt like this was something that I needed to do for myself and if others loved it then that was simply the whip cream and sprinkles on top of the sundae.

Writing Wicked Night as well as the rest of A Warrior’s Promise Series, has also taught me to be more aware of the world around me and what those we meet may potentially be going through. I’ve always been fascinated when I would see someone walk past me; I’d wonder where might they be going and what would they do there? Are they having a good day or did they just learn terrible news about a friend or possibly lose their job? What I realized is that the old additive don’t judge a book by its cover was very true, especially when it came to people. What we see in a few minutes of interaction with those we come into contact with daily is but a blink of their life and we can be very quick to judge. I’ve certainly fallen victim to this, but now I wonder, what happened in this person’s life to make them the way they are and what would a day in their shoes look like? Even those that are always smiling and have a kind word for others has had terrible things happen to them, they’ve just become masters at hiding the pain.

I feel that writing about other’s lives, fiction or not, has taught me to be more empathetic and see the world and those that live in it from a dozen different views.

It’s my belief, that this way of seeing those around me, is what helps make my characters feel real to those that read my work. I strive for my characters to become the friend you love or the lover you hate or maybe the family member that is always screwing up. They should each become just like someone you know, annoying or loved and completely flawed; then from there we get to watch them grow, fail and find love in their lives as they struggle just as we all struggle.



Evi Rhodes has always had a passion for writing and likes to spend as much time as possible hanging out with the array of rescue animals on her farm in Ontario, sipping on a cup of coffee and typing on her laptop.

In addition to getting her degree in business as well as competing in her favourite equestrian sport, dressage, she is an entrepreneur, and has coached many of a riding enthusiast, but she has always found herself coming back to wanting to write full-time.

“I just want to be me and to be authentic. To tell a story that others can immerse themselves in and enjoy is what I have always wanted.”

  4. What an exciting sounding book..I can't wait!

  5. What's your favorite part about writing?

    1. Hi there Kim, thank you for the question. I think my favourite part is creating a world that others not only enjoy and fall in love with the characters, but also the ability to share pieces of real life stories within my work. Many of the situations my characters endure come from people that I know personally or have met in brief passing. To share their strengths and weakness, joys and sorrows is not only important to me but I feel privileged to share their truths.

  6. Thanks for sharing the great post, sounds like a very good book!

  7. I liked the excerpt. Sounds like a good book.
