Senior year is supposed to be fun: boys, dances and graduation. It's significantly harder to enjoy it when you're dead.
Thanks to an innocent game of Truth or Dare, I wound up sleeping in a graveyard. Probably not the brightest thing I've ever done, but thanks to a couple of well placed fangs, I'm here to tell the tale.
Vampires might stalk pop culture, but they’re just myths, right? Yeah. Not so much...
Everything seems a lot more difficult when you’re a nocturnal creature of the night, especially school. I was managing, but couldn't keep it hidden from my friends. Steph decided that we should be cool, like superheroes, and fight crime.
I’m a vampire, not a hero. Living in a sleepy New England town, crime is a little harder to come by. At least it is until a serial killer moves into the area. He’s got the authorities stumped, but then again, the cops don’t have a teenage, blood-sucking, non-hero on their team. It doesn't take long for me to discover the world is full of monsters. I may be one of them…but will I turn out to be the hero, or the killer everyone is looking for.

favorite school assignment ever was
modernizing and retelling a fairy tale (sophomore English – Aced it AND got
extra credit – Thanks Ms. Seckler!), so
when Decadent Publishing put out the
call for a retelling of a Grimm’s Fairy Tale, my hand immediately shot in the
air. I was given The Three Army Surgeons,
an obscure, somewhat gruesome story that was definitely not a romance. (Read it

kidding me. What I have I gotten myself into?” But then I plunged in. Before

Time is running out for Armina Keer to have the baby she’s always
wanted. Before she can move on with her life, she needs her estranged husband
to sign their divorce papers. When she can’t get him to respond, her meddling
uncles arrange for a trip to his inn. Despite vowing to guard her broken heart,
she has to settle the past before she can have a future.
Ian Keer might not deserve a second chance with his wife, but he’s
not going to give up one either, not with the immediate flaming attraction
still between them. While her uncles’ antics wreak havoc on life at The Inn, he
offers her the ultimate gamble: Spend the night with him, and afterwards he’ll
sign the papers if she still wants to leave.
With everything riding
on one night together, Ian must convince her that their love is strong enough
the second time around, and Armina must decide if love is worth sacrificing her
“You hate me,”
Ian whispered, feeling more nauseous than if he’d ingested a prosthetic
eyeball. How could she not hate him when she believed their personal
relationship had meant less to him than an employment issue?

married, I understood you had a strong work ethic combined with an unusual
drive to succeed and a consuming passion for the Inn. I knew I’d come in second
to this place.”
He opened his
mouth, wanting to argue, but couldn’t. If she’d made him choose, he wouldn’t
have picked her.
“I thought I was
okay with it,” she continued. “After all, I loved the Inn, too, and wanted you
to realize your vision for it. Turns out I wasn’t okay. I didn’t realize how
distant second place actually was.” She shrugged her slim shoulders. “Live and

No one has the right to ask that of you.”

the eye. “Now you understand why I want a divorce.”

As one of the last Whanamanu—a descendant of the Maori bird-god Tane—she has to hold on to the secrets of her tribe. Family first.
