I love the paranormal and my muse of late insists that I pen vampire tales. What else could I do? I combined a little vampire lore and Yuletide celebrations and voila—Mistletoe, Stakes, and Yuletide Cheer was created.
The Oiche Sith (pronounced ‘ee-hah shee’) sept can trace their roots back before the word vampire was part of the English language. The Oiche Sith sept are one of the original clans. Though there are hybrids in their sept now, the originals were born to parents. They were not made.
In Mistletoe, Stakes, and Yuletide Cheer, Tremayne Graystone is from the Oiche Sith sept and a cousin to Bram, who is the hero in my tale: Twilight’s Eternal Embrace.
You’ll meet Cassandra Hayes, a hunter. The Hayes family has passed on their talents through the centuries, eliminating any preternatural being that is a threat to the human race.
Mistletoe, Stakes, and Yuletide Cheer
What’s a hunter to do when she’s fallen for the vampire she’s been sent to stake?
Cassandra Hayes has been dating Tremayne Graystone, the vampire she’s been sent to eliminate. To stake or not to stake is the least of their problems when masked men kidnap them and hold them hostage. They realize all they want for Christmas is a chance to make their relationship work. Kisses under the mistletoe may not make this holiday merry, but they’re willing to give it a shot. Available at: Amazon Kindle
Look out for more tales about the Hayes family in 2014.
The Oiche Sith, the blood drinkers, forged an alliance with the Lathe Sith, a neighboring daywalker clan. The Oiche Sith would protect them from invaders in exchange that one female a year wed one of their warriors for the blooding ritual. Unfortunately, the female Lathe Sith never survives for very long.
Adryanna, a Lathe Sith, mourns the death of her recently mated sister, but she finds solace in the most unlikely place—in the arms of Bram, an Oiche Sith. She should fear him, loathe his existence, but instead she longs for their twilight embraces. Bram admires Adryanna’s strength and wishes only to protect her, even if it’s from him.
If Bram cannot find a way for Adryanna to survive the blooding ritual, the romance is doomed. They seek help from Sheerin, Bram’s cousin, who believes he’s found a way for the Lathe Sith to survive, but others in the Oiche Sith clan do not wish for them to succeed. Amazon Kindle
