All that separates them…is a century or two.
Werewolf Rafe Garrett is second-in-command of a twenty-third century special ops team, sent back to present day Seattle to stop a group of renegade vampires from destroying the U.S. and causing the deaths of millions of innocent people. He has a personal vendetta, too. The renegades’ leader is the same bloodsucker who murdered Rafe’s pregnant wife.
Few humans can stake a vampire on their first try, but Stacy Cadell is that kind of gal—a ball of fire in a cool, petite package. Caught in the battle between vampires and werewolves, Stacy hides her true identity from both sides, fearing it could be used against her. But protecting her heart from the werewolf warrior with the killer good looks, is a fight she’s sure to lose.
Especially when she learns that, for history to correct itself, she must sacrifice the one person she holds most dear.
Contains: Hunky, alpha werewolves running around naked, sensual love scenes and mature language. If you read sweet romance, try CRAZY FOR COWBOY, or one of the novels from the series ‘A Frost Family Christmas.’

Read an excerpt:
(Action scene, battle with vampires, heroine’s POV – 300 words)
Stacy sucked in a breath. There, silhouetted in the open door, was Rafe—carved of flesh and bone, clothed in jeans and leather. He had a high-tech machine gun in his hand and looked as lethal as a Roman gladiator, as hot as the June hunk from her firefighters’ calendar.
“Drop to the floor or die,” he told the assembly.
Only the humans complied. As Stacy hit the ground, the beat of rapid fire played a staccato bassline, accompanying cries of pain, which resounded like a chorus above her. She flinched with every deafening blast, the harsh roar of gunfire juxtaposed with the bell-like ping of each bullet casing as it hit the cold concrete.
“Get behind me.”
Gratefully, she followed his instructions as he continued the onslaught—throwing a dozen stakes and another round of bullets. All found flesh, but not all penetrated vampire hearts. The wounded fell but, to Stacy’s shock and horror, the same ghouls reappeared a few minutes later healed and hungry for revenge.
Weapons spent, Rafe used the butt end of his gun as a bat, knocking three more attackers in the head before a fourth managed to get close enough to jab one of the discarded stakes into Rafe.
Blood, dark and thick, spread over his T-shirt, drenching the area near his shoulder. There was a collective gasp in the room and two dozen pairs of fangs clicked into place—the sound of hungry vampires, ready for dinner.
Stacy looked up at Rafe, his face drawn with pain. While his chest heaved from the exertion of the last few minutes, she found it impossible to draw breath. He nudged her with his foot, signaling for her to continue to the door and escape on her own.
But she wasn’t going anywhere. Not without him.
About the author:
My first love was the theater. And my greatest professional thrill was acting on the same stage as Sarah Bernhardt—though not in the same century. I’ve had small parts in a few movies and TV shows, including the hit programs HONEY I SHRUNK THE KIDS and DEGRASSI JUNIOR HIGH.
Writing is rather similar to acting, I believe. Except I get to play ALL the characters…while wearing my PJs and sipping tea. What could be better?
I’m married to my first love—a wonderful guy. So I don’t just write romance, I live it!
