                                              "The Rescue."

“Here we go,” he said softly as he kneeled on the cushion and situated her on the sofa. His hands went immediately to the hem of her sweater. “Let’s take these off.”

“Whoa, guy. I can get it,” she said as she grabbed a firm hold on his wrist, stopping him from lifting her sweater up.

“I’m trying to get you out of these clothes so you don’t freeze— nothing else.”

“Well, I understand, but I can do it.”

His body stilled and he remained quiet. Portions of his face—chin, nose and mouth were visible, but his eyes managed to remain hidden within the confines of his hood. He got up from the sofa and stood tall. With a strong voice, he spoke with authority, “Shoes, jeans, shirt….even the underwear. Everything comes off. There’s a robe you can use hanging on the back of the bathroom door to cover up.”

“May I shower?”

“No. You’re numb with the cold and you won’t be able to feel the temperature of the water. I don’t need you suffering from burns on top of this.” He walked to a wicker basket that sat near the sliding glass door and retrieved several throw blankets. He made his way back to her and handed off the blankets. “I’m going back out to your car to get your bags. I’ll clean out the snow that got inside and patch up the broken windows with tarp that I have outside.”

“Y-you don’t have to do all of that. You’ve done so much already.”

“Do me a favor. Get out these clothes.”

Okay, that may have been 9 lines! LOL


Noel Tierney thought she’d have enough time before the predicted storm to make it to her holiday retreat, but the snow hit sooner than expected. Caught unprepared on a treacherous pass, poor visibility and icy conditions lead to a crash. She lay immobile in her vehicle, stranded in a ditch in the most remote leg of her journey.

A faceless hero comes to her rescue and Noel has no choice but to wait out the blizzard in her rescuer’s unique cabin nestled in the woods. Everything about Grayson James peaks her curiosity—his valor, air of mystery and most of all, undeniable attractiveness.

For three days and nights, passions are unleashed and unexpected emotions are brought to life. When the storm breaks, Grayson vanishes into thin air, but not before revealing startling news that leaves her questioning her sanity.

Fast forward years later and Noel is in the southernmost part of the United States. She’d come seeking solace after her husband’s tragic death, but what finds her in Key West is more than she ever anticipated.

In the sultry summer, her unbridled winter’s ecstasy resurrects.

And so does the Vampire.
