"Christmas morning with a sexy stranger"
A fresh pine tree leaned against the wall. Paper
snowflakes, cut out from newspaper, hung from the branches.
“Merry Christmas, pretty lady.”
She leveled her head back down on the pillow and looked up
at him. “When? How?”
“I snuck out while you slept and went searching the forest.
I wanted you to have your tradition. I know it’s not the prettiest, but I
worked with what we had around here.”
“Prettiest? Who cares? The fact that you did this….I-I
can’t even find the words to say what I feel. And the snowflakes? You made those?”
“Each and every one. And they’re all different.” he
paused, as if in deep reflection, “Snowflakes fascinate me. Before you got
here, I would just sit and watch as they collect on the windows. They remind me
“Well, people in general. The snowflakes, they look alike
as they gather all together, like a crowd of people. From a distance, you can’t
make out features, what makes people who they are just as you can’t recognize
the complex, intricate structures unique to each snowflake.”
“Damn, you are really are on a road to self-discovery.”
“You don’t know me, Noel. I may look like something you’re

his long, hard shaft.
“You don’t understand,” he whispered with an ache of
torment in his voice. He buried his face into her neck. “You just don’t get
it.” He sucked on her flesh right where
her neck met her shoulder.
“Oh!” Her eyes rolled back in her head. She shut her eyes
tight, concentrating on the sensation he stirred in her body.
Most women say it’s their nipples, but for her, the most

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.
