5.0 out of 5 stars A Delicious, Wicked Read!!! 22 Nov 2005
Format:Paperback
Ms. Bangs’ has managed to do it again! “Wicked Nights” is a fun, sexy, scream of a ride.
This fast-paced read is populated by some of the most memorable characters I’ve read. This is one series that I’m going to consume eagerly and suggest fellow readers to do the same.
Donna Nolan talk show host with a program of anything goes finds herself leaving the sanity of New York, for the wild, wicked, bizarre of Texas, specifically the “Castle of Dark Dreams.” Several of her callers have reported a strange situation there and she’s been sent to investigate. She doesn’t want to be there but it’s not up to her. She knows she had it right when she meets Sprinkle Stardust owner of a decedent sweet shop with a tad problem of one mindedness when it comes to sensual vampires (remember anything goes), two plants that thrive when in a room with…let’s just say sensual activity going on, a mind talking cat, a wanna be Merlin, and three of the most testosterone filled, yummy men in the world…and well you have an idea of what she’s taken on. Too bad Eric the Evil…aka Eric McNair at first doesn’t seem to want her or her talk show at his castle. It’s also too bad these two can’t keep their minds, hands, lips…well again you get the idea off of each other. What’s a girl to do when she wants to believe but what she has to believe is almost too extraordinary to contemplate?
Eric has a secret. Actually all three of them Eric, Conall, and Brynn have secrets to keep and they will at any cost…or so they think. Eric can’t keep his mind off of the sexy talk show lady, and against all common sense he finds he doesn’t want to.

By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
When we last tuned in to the continuing adventures of "the matchmaker from hell" - Sparkle Stardust, she was at the WooWoo Inn and up to old tricks or arranging romances, then between Thrain Davis and Cindy Harper, the proprietress of the eccentric Inn. This time she is back to pestering the Mackenzies. Now running a candy store - well, sex and chocolate do go so well together - Sparkle had targeted Eric McNair. She knows secrets about McNair - one that he is really Eric Mackenzie, he loves chocolate, is one of three "brothers" who run the Castle of Dark Dreams, and the brothers are not really brothers. She also knows Eric is a vampire. But then vamps have such a special spot in Sparkle's heart - and libido.
Castle of Dark Dreams is a yummy new attraction in Live the Fantasy - sort of a romance Fantasy Island, just minus Tattoo! Live the Fantasy is a theme part, but this ain't no Six Flags Over Texas. This theme part is where women who dare, who want to do more than just read about fantasies can experience them. They can take "role-playing" to a whole new level! Castle dark is run by Eric and his two "brothers" Connall and Brynn.
Hot on their trail is talk-show host Donna Nolan. She heard whispers about Castle of Dark Dreams and smells a great scoop, just the sort of sexy, titillating story that will up the ratings and satisfy the always hungry listener of her show. But when she faces the mysterious, sensual, drop-dead (literally...lol) Eric and looks into those cold blue eyes, her job is the last thing on her mind!
Sparkle has decided Eric is too lonely for a man who should have "too tempting to touch tattooed across his chest", and is more than willing to lend her talents to see this situation changed.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars 12 Nov 2010
By Rebecca
Format:Kindle Edition
3.5 more like it. This was my introduction to Nina Bangs, and I enjoyed her humor throughout the book, about an adult entertainment park staffed by three immortals who play, well...themselves. The Castle of Dark Dreams is investigated by a late night radio talk show host, Donna, and you know things are going to get perky when she's given the "Wicked Nights" suite with two houseplants, Sweetie Pie and Jessica, who gain sustenance from human emotion, particularly sexual emotion. A fan of houseplants, I'm also a fan of chocolate, and this lovely treat also played a recurring role in the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars another wickled delicious tale from Bangs 22 Jun 2005
By Deborah MacGillivray - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
When we last tuned in to the continuing adventures of "the matchmaker from hell" - Sparkle Stardust, she was at the WooWoo Inn and up to old tricks or arranging romances, then between Thrain Davis and Cindy Harper, the proprietress of the eccentric Inn.

She also knows Eric is a vampire. But then vamps have such a special spot in Sparkle's heart - and libido.

Castle of Dark Dreams is a yummy new attraction in Live the Fantasy - sort of a romance Fantasy Island, just minus Tattoo! Live the Fantasy is a theme part, but this ain't no Six Flags Over Texas. This theme part is where women who dare, who want to do more than just read about fantasies can experience them. They can take "role-playing" to a whole new level! Castle dark is run by Eric and his two "brothers" Connall and Brynn.

Hot on their trail is talk-show host Donna Nolan. She heard whispers about Castle of Dark Dreams and smells a great scoop, just the sort of sexy, titillating story that will up the ratings and satisfy the always hungry listener of her show. But when she faces the mysterious, sensual, drop-dead (literally...lol) Eric and looks into those cold blue eyes, her job is the last thing on her mind!

Sparkle has decided Eric is too lonely for a man who should have "too tempting to touch tattooed across his chest", and is more than willing to lend her talents to see this situation changed. When she tells Eric, "think of me as your very own fairy godmother", the Mackenzie vamp should give up the fight because Sparkle knows best!

Wicked Nights, obviously is the first of the "brothers" of Castle of Dark Dreams tales, following Sparkle and Ganymede through their cosmic mischief making. Dorchester re-released Master of the Night, and just out Night Bites (March 2005) as ones you will not want to miss in the series...Bangs, is sharp and just gets sharper. The "biting" humour, the sexy, steaming tales are addictive, leaving us breathless and eager for more Night tales!!!!!!!! Please note while Master of the Night and Night Bites are Dorchester's Love Spell, new Night Tales will come from Berkley with the start of Wicked Nights, and is a move into Trade Size books.

In a market with vamps around every corner, Bangs gives you more "bang for the buck" in this racy, sexy, sizzling hot tale.

5.0 out of 5 stars paranormal romance filled with humor and sex 30 Mar 2005
By Harriet Klausner - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Cosmic troublemaker Sparkle Stardust is drawn to Galveston, Texas where she targets three immortal beings; the owners of the Castle of Dark Dreams the main attraction in the adult theme park, Live the Fantasy. Her first stud is Eric McNair, a vampire who melts chocolates with one leering stare.

Talk show host Donna Nolan reluctantly leaves Houston to conduct interviews at the Castle of Dark Dreams. Sparkle thinks she is the perfect person to shake Eric as these two opponents would be better than watching a heavyweight championship fight. When Eric and Donna meet, sparks fly high enough to light up the state of Texas. However, another vampire, holding Eric culpable for the death of his sibling, sees Donna as the bait to enact vengeance. Eric willingly risks immortality to save his beloved.

WICKED NIGHTS is a typical Nina Bangs paranormal romance filled with humor and sex at times together with the right touch of suspense. The story line is action packed as Sparkle gets her wish, a bloodsucking hunk and a mortal battling one another and their attraction for each other. Readers will enjoy this wicked tale and look forward to novels starring Eric's siblings, a demon and an immortal warrior, that will surely sparkle with fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being Wicked Was Never So Much Fun!!! 22 Nov 2005
By Kristi Ahlers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ms. Bangs' has managed to do it again! "Wicked Nights" is a fun, sexy, scream of a ride.

This fast-paced read is populated by some of the most memorable characters I've read. This is one series that I'm going to consume eagerly and suggest fellow readers to do the same.

Donna Nolan talk show host with a program of anything goes finds herself leaving the sanity of New York, for the wild, wicked, bizarre of Texas, specifically the "Castle of Dark Dreams." Several of her callers have reported a strange situation there and she's been sent to investigate. She doesn't want to be there but it's not up to her. She knows she had it right when she meets Sprinkle Stardust owner of a decedent sweet shop with a tad problem of one mindedness when it comes to sensual vampires (remember anything goes), two plants that thrive when in a room with...let's just say sensual activity going on, a mind talking cat, a wanna be Merlin, and three of the most testosterone filled, yummy men in the world...and well you have an idea of what she's taken on. Too bad Eric the Evil...aka Eric McNair at first doesn't seem to want her or her talk show at his castle. It's also too bad these two can't keep their minds, hands, lips...well again you get the idea off of each other. What's a girl to do when she wants to believe but what she has to believe is almost too extraordinary to contemplate?

Eric has a secret. Actually all three of them Eric, Conall, and Brynn have secrets to keep and they will at any cost...or so they think. Eric can't keep his mind off of the sexy talk show lady, and against all common sense he finds he doesn't want to. When a dark and evil creature from his past arrives...all bets are off. Instead of protecting secrets, he's going to protect Donna. But, will this make his heart vulnerable or will he finally find the strength he's been looking for?

This story was a hoot! I can't wait for Conall's and Brynn's stories. Eric and Donna were a wonderfully entertaining couple and a thrill to read! Ms. Bangs' trademark humor and sensuality is plenty evident as well as her larger then life secondary characters! Ms. Bangs' is definitely a wonderful addition to the genre of paranormal romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully Wicked Fun 26 May 2005
By Gerry Bartlett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
If you liked Master of Ecstacy by Bangs, you'll be glad to know she's given us another hot vampire book. This time the setting is an adult theme park and the sexy setting is just the start. Cosmic troublemakers are at it again to bring two unlikely lovers together and Bangs trademark humor will keep you laughing. I give it two thumbs up.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fun read! 25 Feb 2006
By marymuse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've been an avid fan of Nina Bangs' work for a while now, and wanted to read this book from the moment it hit the shelves. I've been lucky enough to read, and finish this book, and I can tell you to run, don't walk, to your nearest bookstore and buy this book right now!

Talk show host Donna Nolan doesn't believe in things like love at first sight or things that go bump in the night. She's at the Castle of Dark Dreams for one thing only -- to find out the truth about the women who call into her show saying they were seduced all night long. Eric, the castle's resident vampire, is trying to protect his, and his brothers' true identities, and take down a powerful vampire. He doesn't count on Donna, or his attraction to her. Throw in a meddlesome chocolate shop owner, an avatar of Bast (who reminded me of my own cats), a wizard, and two plants who thrive on sexual energy, and you have a read that's going to keep you up all night long.

I loved the interactions between these two characters, and their sexual chemistry scorched the pages. Kind of makes me want to have a brooding vampire all to my own.
