When a dentist meets an average suburban vampire, it may just be a match made in heaven. Tom is your typical modern vampire. He lives in a detached house in the suburbs, pays his taxes, and bemoans the price of bottled blood. He doesn't usually tell people what he is, but sometimes it can't be helped, like now, when he has toothache and needs the assistance of a dentist. Martyn's night isn't going too well at all. He's working late, his patient is a vampire, and now they're being mugged. But what sort of a vampire is Tom if he can't leap to the rescue and use his superpowers to save them? There's only one way to find out and Martyn, a self-confessed geek with a love for all things vampire, intends to get to know Tom better, despite the bloodsucker's fear of dentists.
Finding Susan ~ New Release
Only 99c until November 1! A real life story of deceit, acceptance, and the quest to find true love, while staying true to yourself. The last thing Renay Skovgaard expected was to find herself a victim of a catfisher. No stranger to online dating, Renay didn't see it coming until it was too late, and she'd already lost her heart. Months after the catfisher had faded away, and time had healed the wound, Renay was finally able to grasp the truth behind the encounter. She was in love with the woman in the image she carried around in her back pocket, not the person behind the screen. Her hazel eyes were the same pair she'd seen since childhood, and she was ready to find the woman she knew only as, Susan Walters. The last thing Olga Weber expected her first night at Oktoberfest was to come-to-face with the woman she couldn't live without. Her kindness, humor, and easy going way of making her feel safe drew her to the woman like a moth to a flame. Olga knew the game she played was dangerous, because a woman like Renay could destroy the make-believe life she's worked for years to build. After one chance meeting she could feel the walls of her closet crumbling around her, and she knew her life was about to change…forever. Olga and Renay find themselves falling in love; one woman comfortable with her sexuality, the other uncomfortable in her own skin. A bottle of wine and a sweet, languid kiss told Olga the time had come to decide if Renay was worth fighting for, and if true love could conquer all
