In the Red Sage novella, "Blood and Kisses," mercenary Beryl St. Cloud searches for the one man who can protect her from a vampire assassin -- another vampire, Jim Decker. The catch is, she knows she must pay in blood.
"A Candidate for the Kiss" is another one of my vampire stories. This one deals with a vampire James Bond and the pretty reporter who stumbles on the story of a lifetime.
It appears in Secrets Volume 6, and won the 2000 PEARL award in the novella/short story category.
Kissing the Hunter" is a novel-length story in Secrets Volume 7 .

He slays his wife's killer, then discovers the existance of another vampire, Virginia Hart. But Virginia is no murderer, and he finds he can't bring herself to hurt her. His hesitation costs him. Virginia captures him instead, and he wakes up a prisoner of a very sexy lady vamp.

When Amelia Patton regains consciousness under a vampire's Christmas Tree, she finds herself bound and naked with a bow around her neck. As if that's not bad enough, the vampire in question is David Tate, the handsome cop she dumped after she found he'd been turned into a bloodsucking fiend. But as David starts taking delicious revenge for his broken heart, Amelia realizes he's anything but a monster - and she doesn't mind his revenge one bit.
Soul Kisses" is a novella in Red Sage's Secrets 14 anthology, scheduled for publication in December, 2005. The story's heroine is Beth Chase, sister to Valerie from Forever Kiss.
In this story, I got the idea of seeing if I could do a true menage romance with a strong heroine and two alpha males. But Morgan and Garett aren't your typical alphas -- they're vampires, and they've been close as brothers for four centuries. When they rescue Beth from a vicious vamp kidnapper, the three feel an instant mutual attraction.
But if a killer has his way, they won't live long enough to fall in love.
