Awkward Holidays

Trapped in the Ward mansion with a reluctant and standoffish host – a vampire she should be afraid of but can’t help being attracted to – Angelina is preparing herself for grim, lonely holidays.

When her parents unexpectedly decide to visit, the situation, far from improving, only grows more complicated. They look forward to visiting New York with her, but how can she explain that she’s unable to leave the mansion? For that matter, what will they say when they realize she lives with a millionaire?

A hastily concocted excuse smoothes things over, but now Angelina finds herself having to work closely with Morgan Ward. It wouldn’t be so bad if Morgan was as pleasant to her as he is to her parents, but his mercurial moods leave her confused and frustrated. It doesn’t help that he seems no closer to finding a way for her to leave his house.

The New Year brings change with a startling kiss and an even more surprising guest… or is it more of the same?

Quickening (QuickSilver Codex #2)

On Foh’Ran, a parallel world in which a magical force called the Quickening rules the lives of humans and vampires alike, Vivien just won her first battle.

Raised on Earth, Vivien had no idea she was heir to Foh’Ran’s throne until Brad and Aedan, her bodyguards, revealed themselves to her and took her to her family’s ancestral castle. Her first confrontation with Rhuinn, the man who usurped her throne, ended as well as could be hoped and she won a few days of respite until she has to appear at the royal court again.

Before she does, however, she’ll need to break through her mental block and master the Quickening to prove herself a worthy daughter of Foh’Ran. She’ll also have to gain allies among Foh’Ran’s influential families. The most difficult part, however, might be to follow Aedan’s advice and learn to act like a queen when she’s still unsure whether she truly wants the throne, and would rather simply be Brad’s girlfriend.

My Reluctant Warden

My Reluctant Warden (Sexy Paranormal Romance by Kallysten)When her boss brought her to the party of the season, Mr. Ward’s birthday bash, Angelina thought she had slipped on Cinderella’s shoes.

Now that she is compelled to remain in the mansion, trapped with a host who was only pleasant to her in a shared fantasy, the dream abruptly turns sour.

Under other circumstances, she might enjoy staying in an opulent guest suite, with a butler waiting on her every desire. But her cage, as gilded as it may be, remains a prison, and her host, even if he wishes she were gone, is still her warden.

As she struggles to get used to the situation, she can’t figure out what to think of Morgan Ward, a man who claims to be a vampire, who at times ignores her and at times shows himself unexpectedly thoughtful. A man she’s attracted to despite her better judgment.

However, an unexpected conversation with her boss may give her no choice but to get much closer to Morgan than she’s ready for…

Under His Skin

For Christmas, Nathan has the perfect gift for Joshua, his best friend and sometimes lover: his magic. Ever since Nathan found out he had magical abilities, Joshua has supported him, encouraging him to cultivate his talent, so that Nathan is now the resident mage of the local Special Enforcer agency that employs both of them. Joshua, however, doesn’t have a trace of the talent, however much he wishes he could do magic too.

On a night off, Nathan offers Joshua a way to discover what it feels like to do magic by swapping bodies for a few hours. But before the night is over, their boss calls them both for back up, and the playful spell starts to cast a different light on their relationship. Will they be able to do their job and keep an innocent girl safe while stuck in each other’s skin, or will magic break them apart?

Bodyguards (QuickSilver Codex #1)

On the verge of her twentieth birthday, Vivien’s worries are those of a typical young woman: doing well in college, gaining more independence, and maybe managing to show Brad, her classmate and sometimes jogging partner, that she wouldn’t mind taking their burgeoning relationship to a different level.

Everything changes in the blink of an eye. Vivien stumbles into a knife fight, watches a man die in front of her, and soon listens, stunned, as Brad and his brother Aedan tell her a story of magic, vampires and a murderous ruler intent on killing a princess in hiding – a tale in which she is the princess and heir to a realm she didn’t know existed.

Vivien’s first instinct is to refuse to believe this incredible tale, even if it comes from a man she is attracted to. But when her self-proclaimed bodyguards use magic to take her to a different world, the edges of reality start blurring and Vivien has to figure out who she truly is.

Forgotten Lullabies

In the novels Fangs & Lullabies and Demons & Lullabies, I have attempted to give readers a peek into the very unusual family formed by Jacob and his fathers, Andrew and Nicholas, both of whom are vampires. These two stories offer snapshots of Jacob’s and his fathers’ lives from his birth to adulthood.

This sample ebook is constructed the same way, although with fewer and shorter snapshots. Some of them were written as answers to prompts from readers and first posted as flash fiction on my site; some were written specifically for this ebook.

Whether you are just discovering the members of this little family or have followed their adventures before, I hope you will enjoy these glimpses into their lives.

Demons and Lullabies

Some little boys want to be firemen or astronauts when they grow up. From the moment Jacob understood what his fathers did, he never wanted to do anything but fight demons.

Andrew, Jacob’s father and a vampire, fights demons because it’s a necessity: few others have the strength or skill to kill the strange creatures that started appearing the very night his son was born. He carries with him some guilt, too, and the suspicion that the magic that made Jacob’s very life possible also opened the way for the demons. The last thing he wants is for his son to ever join this fight and get hurt.

As the years pass, however, and Andrew watches Jacob grow up and grow more determined, he slowly has to accept there’s little he can do to deter his son. It doesn’t help that Nicholas, Jacob’s other dad and Andrew’s Childe, starts giving Jacob sword-fighting lessons under the cover of playing, or that Jacob discovers his mother’s diaries and comes to the same conclusion Andrew did concerning his origins and the demons’.

Through snapshots covering Jacob’s life from birth to adulthood, watch all three members of this unusual family change, grow up, and find their place in the world.

Before The Edge

For Lisa, The Cliff was just one more bar to visit, one more competitor to gauge on her way to opening her own club. The verbal abuse unleashed on her by a patron is unexpected, but not entirely unusual: as a vampire, she has been called worse than ‘killer’ or ‘thing’ before. What is new, on the other hand, is the intervention of the bar’s owner. Lisa isn’t used to humans trying to protect her, and she finds Brett strangely endearing.

For his part, Brett isn’t all that comfortable being around a vampire, but now that he has thrown out the lout who was insulting Lisa, he can hardly ask her to leave. After getting to know her a little, however, he starts seeing the woman beyond the fangs, and when she returns the next night he’s ready to share a dance with her… or even a little more…

Losing His Wings

Losing His Wings (Angel and Demon Romance Novella)For millennia, Samuel has whispered in humans’ and vampires’ minds and tried to steer them toward the right path. For almost as long, Rowan has stood opposite him and nudged the same prey toward more questionable choices. Sometimes, Samuel won. Sometimes, Rowan did. But there was always someone else to help—or destroy.

When they battle once again over Jeffrey, a newly-turned vampire, the fight takes a different turn. This time, it’s about more than the life of Jeffrey’s girlfriend Tanya, or the people Jeffrey might kill to feed. This time, the fight might just be Samuel’s and Rowan’s last.

Final Vision of Destiny – Sam

With the last of her friends gone, Daisy finds herself alone with Sam Woods. After the nine different visions the seer experienced during the evening, he confesses to having trouble differentiating reality from the images of the future he saw. Feeling more comfortable with him than she did at the beginning of the night, Daisy invites him to stay in her guest room.

Troubled as he may be, Sam still hasn’t given up on giving Daisy a vision of her future, haunted by the thought that maybe, just maybe, she is the person whose life will be linked to his – the person he has been looking for in each vision. As they take a stroll on the moonlit beach, he asks her one last time to let him show her future to her. In the end, though, it might be Daisy who offers Sam a vision of his own…

Ninth Vision of Destiny – Jack

Throughout the evening, the seer Sam Woods has shown Daisy’s friends the choices and partners that will shape their romantic lives. Now that the New Year has come, they celebrate the end of the soiree and take their first steps on a path that will lead all of them to love – and for some of them, to heartache, too.

It was heartache that caused Jack to leave the soiree earlier when he guessed that his girlfriend’s vision showed her a future without him. Now, he returns and asks to see for himself. What he discovers in the vision Woods offers him is the very thing all Special Enforcers fear: his awakening as a vampire. When the opportunity arises to kill Angela, his Sire, will he seize it and avenge his own death, or try to move on toward a future with her?

Earlier in the evening, Brad’s girlfriend, Joan, was shown their married life and children, and Brad can’t wait to see what he expects will be the same idyllic future.
