Gwenna Carrick lives in a Las Vegas casino and does nothing
for a living (she's the casino owner's sister). She's
conservative in both dress and actions and she's over 900
years old. Oh yes, she's a vampire. She dabbles on the

the Slayers. They pretend they're vampire slayers, of

SUCKER BET is a very good and satisfying read.
