When the sun goes down, passion and danger light the darkness....
Wicked is the Night
Nevada White is on the run from a strange psychic gift that enables her to see evil...from two deadly predators who are tracking her every move...and from a past she can't recall. The only clue to her identity is a gold amulet, torn from her neck in a struggle with her pursuers. With no safe haven, she crashes into the life of gorgeous race car driver Trick Grainger near a small California town. And though it's clear Nevada spells trouble, she arouses all Trick's protective instincts...and a whole lot more. He offers her sanctuary at the Victorian mansion, said to be haunted, that's been in the Grainger family since the 1850s. But although Nevada is deeply attracted to Trick, how can she hope for love when even her name is a fake? As a series of eerie, violent deaths plague the area, Nevada and Trick race to uncover the link between Nevada's lost amulet and her only known family: her half brother, a San Francisco politician with an insatiable bloodlust. And even if they survive the physical danger, the greatest threat comes from within, because Nevada has no idea who she is, where she came from, or what she might have done....

Catherine Mulvany is married, has three children and now lives in the Pacific Northwest.From Publishers Weekly:
When former race car driver Trick Granger picks up a mysterious hitchhiker, he discovers a whole series of puzzles. Nevada White has escaped from a mental institution where her memory and real name were wiped out, and now a pair of undead detectives are trying to kill her. She's plagued by uncontrollable psychic flashes and her pursuers accusation that she murdered her father. Intrigued by Nevadas resemblance to a ghost haunting his Northern California home and dismissive of the danger, Trick hires her to clean up the inherited mansion. Mulvaney (Something Wicked) spins a diverting if predictable tale with some suspense, but she divulges too many secrets in scenes from the villains viewpoint. The paranormal elements add atmosphere, but wont do much for readers who prefer them integral to the plot. (Dec.)
