EIGHT PARAGRAPHS OF PURE SCINTILLATION
Fire and Ice
"Rescue Me. Seduce Me."
“Where are we going?”
“I'm getting you indoors to get warmed up. Your clothes are wet.”
“Yes, my place...beyond those trees.”
She had a clear view of him now that he’d freed her from the car, but his fur lined hood continued to mask his face. Her faceless hero, shrouded in mystery, merely spoke from within the hood’s confines. But unlike a masked comic book superhero’s hail and reception, he chained her in apprehension and panic. She couldn’t tell one thing about him to forge a connection. “Can’t you just take me to where I was going?”
“Hmmm...I don’t think so. Maybe you haven’t noticed the knee-high snow I’m walking through. My truck is buried in this.”

“Nope, your vehicle is in no driving condition either. We’ll just have to wait out the storm together.”
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.
