    Mischief is the kind of humorous, sexy, light, and romantic novel fans of Amanda Quick have come to cherish. Better than Mystique, her last effort, this book is more on a par with Rendezvous, Scandal, and Mistress. Amanda Quick, the pen name used by Jayne Ann Krentz when writing historicals, does not write “important” romances. What she does write are well-crafted, wonderfully written stories.   New York Times bestselling author Nina Bruhns presents one of her most beloved titles, NIGHT MISCHIEF, part of the DARK ENCHANTMENTS series. Handsome as the devil with a temptingly sinful body, demon Galen McManus plies his wicked trade masquerading as an incubus. Little does Dawn know that Galen's real objective is not sex, but to weave his own brand of cosmic justice.
