Ruth has been a vampire for sixty-five years after being assaulted by a vampire during World War II while her family hid from the Nazis. One night, she is drawn to a house where they are celebrating Hanukkah and the candles are burning in the window. There, she meets a man, Benjamin Fox, who is immune to her vampire charms. Ben is thirty-five years old and dying of a heart problem he's had since he was a child. Together, they will form a friendship that could be so much more if either could allow it. But when Ben is about to succumb to his illness, Ruth must decide whether to give in to his wishes and make him a vampire too. She is, he's decided, his ultimate Hanukkah gift. CONTENT ADVISORY: This work is a re-release title.


Ruth stood on the roof of the building across the street and watched them. It had been sixty-five years since she'd heard the words spoken, and yet she still knew them as she'd known them as a human, which surprised her. Most of the time, she wasn't easily astonished.
In terms of time, it had been sixty-five years since the Nazis had found her family's hiding place in the fake bottom of a barn in rural Poland and taken them all away to be killed in the nearest concentration camp. The Nazis had taken her — but they hadn't killed her. No, the Vampire had done that. And then he'd changed her so she would never draw another breath, never see the sunlight, and needed to feed off the blood of others to survive. In this day and age with the cinemas showing love stories about young girls and glowing Vampires, it wasn't a story that would shock and awe anymore.
She was a Vampire, and while she was now a creature to be worshiped in the church of Pop Culture, she would live forever and knew that sometime in the future she would be feared as a monster again. It didn't matter. Only the blood mattered most of the time.

About the Author

As a teenager, I would hide in my room to read my favorite romance novels when I was supposed to be doing my homework. I hope, these days, that my parents think it was worth it. I am the mother of three adorable boys and I am fortunate to be married to my best friend. I live in Austin Texas where I am determined to eat all the barbecue in town. I am in love with science fiction, fantasy, and the paranormal and try to use all of these elements in my writing. I've been told I'm a little bloodthirsty so I hope that when you read my work you'll enjoy the action packed ride that always ends in romance. I love to write series because I love to see characters develop over time and it always makes me happy to see my favorite characters make guest appearances in other books. In my world anything is possible, anything can happen, and you should suspect that it will.
