Come along on this journey filled with vampires, witches and prowling were-panthers -- where the heartaches of love and betrayal become twisted by the hands of fate.
Lenora and Leonia are two very powerful witches, but, more than that, they are closely bonded sisters.
When Leonia meets Orin, a hot, steamy man that seems to have stepped straight from a dream, her entire life is turned inside out. Embracing her chance at love could mean having to change everything she is -- everything she's known.
Lenora doesn't harbor any love for her sister's new love interest. There's just something about him that doesn't resonate with her, but for Leonia's sake, she does what she can to keep the peace. In the meantime, she sets her sights elsewhere. She takes pity on some unfortunate souls from a nearby village, consequently creating the first vampires.

There was a thoughtful frown on the face of the man who was the possessor of twenty million dollars. He was a tall, spare man, with a fringe of reddish-brown hair encircling a bald spot. His blue eyes, fixed just now in a steady gaze upon a row of ponderous law books across the room, were friendly and benevolent in direct contradiction to the bulldog, never-let-go fighting qualities of the square jaw below the firm, rather thin lips. The lawyer, a youthfully alert man of sixty years, trimly gray as to garb, hair, and mustache, sat idly watching him, yet with eyes that looked so intently that they seemed to listen. For fully five minutes the two men had been pulling at their cigars in silence when the millionaire spoke. "Ned, what am I going to do with my money?" Into the lawyer's listening eyes flashed, for a moment, the keenly scrutinizing glance usually reserved for the witness on the other side. Then quietly came the answer. "Spend it yourself, I hope-for some years to come, ...

Vickie shrugged and returned to her work. "The chances are he went to that breakfast place the two of you love so much."
"It's called Il Fornaio, and it's not only a breakfast place," the mechanic replied and resumed his task. "Actually, the fact that they serve breakfast is incidental. They're an Italian place, so they serve Italian food for all three meals of the day. And a couple more meals too if you're a hobbit."
"You're Korean, though, so why don't you go more for the Asian food?"
"I'm Chinese-American, thank you very much," Bobby said. "And it's not a trait that defines who I am or what I eat. I happen to like me some authentic Italian food, so there."

Get Out Of My Dreams Alice and John Timberlake lead a quiet life in the suburbs of California. John is a prison officer at the California State Prison, and Alice assists the Agony Aunt columnist, with big dreams of becoming a reporter. One morning they awaken to their lives turned upside down -- John is on the couch with no recollection of how he got there, the front door lock is unbolted, and the alarm is disarmed.

Callum is a member of the Shadow class, the lowest rank in human society. His kin lead desperate lives; they survive on the scraps left by an over-indulgent post-apocalyptic humanity, clinging to the remains of a broken metropolis. Their increasing numbers - a result of ineffective government policies failing to address the issue - prompts those in power to instigate an unethical process of forced relocation known as the Rout, ignored by an indifferent society looking to bury its problems. Abandoned by his parents to endure a childhood of children's homes, followed by teen life surviving on the streets, Callum develops a staunch determination to endure the horrors life throws at him. He is a survivor, able to think fast on his feet, yet his principles hasten his near death during a chance encounter with an enigmatic alien entity.
