Halloween Decor BY KELLY WHITLEY

Witches, monsters, and superheroes paraded through the dark streets, gathering goodies door-to-door.

The best treats, the weirdest music, the scariest decorations were always at the Morgan house. The neighborhood looked forward to seeing what the Morgans would do to top the previous year.
A fog machine produced an eerie mist that eddied around the bloodied body propped against the tallest of the tombstones scattered in the front yard, a meat cleaver buried in the apex of its skull, and a perpetual scream on its face.

No one noticed the dead man bore a strong resemblance to Mr. Morgan.

BLURB (paranormal romantic suspense—vampires)

Human blood is an illicit and highly addictive drug--if you're a vampire. Known as Red, its side effects are insanity, and eventual death. A group of Red-addicted vampires known as Poisoners are killing women as part of an extortion plot involving a lost ancient vampiric tome, and they’re leaving a trail of bodies in their wake.

The discovery of each new victim risks exposure of the entire vampire race to humans. Then one victim survives… Dr. Evan Nichols, oncologist and vampire, lives a monk-like existence, by his own choice, focusing on patient care and research to benefit his vampire brethren. It’s been twenty-five years since his world turned upside down—the night he lost his fiancee and discovered his hidden vampire heritage. Now his government has ordered him to take a mate—or they’ll choose one for him. It’s a horrible prospect, and one that might push him over the edge—until Fate throws him together with a human female.

Wary of relationships, Tara West has poured her energies into work and inventing cutting edge climbing equipment. She doesn’t like the gorgeous Dr. Nichols, yet finds herself unaccountably drawn to him. When a crazed vampire attacks and poisons Tara, Evan rescues her. With time running out, he has to create an antidote to the poison before he loses his chance at love. In order to make the vaccine which might cure her, he has to find the bastards who poisoned her and take their venom—before they die of their addiction. If he doesn’t reach them in time, saving her will be impossible.
Thus the journey begins—into the Red!
