Sneak Peak of Spellbound

Check this out! Here's a quick sneak peak of Spellbound, an erotic romance fantasy I'm writing for a short story collection titled Enchanted:


Linden blended with the other witches at the Kansas City coven about as well as a poor woman fit in with shoppers at the Country Club Plaza. And she would know since the nearest portal-mirror to the covenstead had spit her out in a BCBGMaxAzria dressing room on Nichols Road.

While there was no place like home, she was not happy to be here.

The only thing worse than rich bitches is rich witches, she thought as she worked her way through the elegantly dressed crowd of magical practitioners who eyed her like a lost leper.

“Goddess help us, even the lotus leaf incense can’t mask her stink,” a tall, twenty-something woman said.

Linden stopped and squinted past the woman’s muddy gray aura. Karma was already working on the anorexic, haute couture model-wannabe; her power was dwindling faster than her looks. Linden laughed in the woman’s sharp-boned face and kept walking.

Still, Ms. Anorexic wasn’t wrong. The coven’s expensive incense couldn’t mask the smell of the booty call spell she had cast to find a magus, a male witch, for a one night stand. To everyone but the one, she reeked. But to him, she should smell like a sex kitten.

He was here—the divination pendulum had pointed to the KC covenstead—which was the only reason she had come home and taken the remote chance that someone would recognize her.

In the middle of the room she turned in a slow circle, taking in the faces of the magi, looking for a response to her blatant invitation.
 
She needed this, needed him. One of her own kind. Someone who understood magic. Who could match her breath for breath. Stroke for stroke. Spell for spell. A man she wouldn’t scare off.

Blurb of Human No Longer by Kathryn Meyer Griffith:

Jenny and Jeff Sanders on a summer night become the victims of a bizarre crime, leaving Jeff dead and Jenny in a coma. Their attackers aren’t caught.

She returns to her children and her life. With Jeff’s death his business and their income are also gone. Jenny, a novelist, hasn’t written a book in years, so she must move back to her childhood home in Summer Haven, Florida, where years before she and Jeff destroyed a sadistic family of vampires.

At least her brother, Joey, who owns a local diner, is there to help them.

But Jenny has no appetite. She’s edgy. Her eyes hurt. Could be trauma from the attack. Grief. Until one night, after they’ve moved into the rundown family farmhouse, she can’t resist the night woods or drinking animals’ blood.

Gradually she accepts the truth. Her attackers were vampires. Now she’s becoming what s he once hunted and fears she must either kill herself or run. She can’t abandon her children, but promises herself never to drink human blood; to find a way to live in the human world. It’s not easy. They renovate the farmhouse, which local gossip says is haunted. At night she hunts and hides what she’s becoming from everyone. She fights to be a good mother and not let the blood lust overpower her. Gets a job and attempts to fit in.

People, bodies brutalized and emptied of blood , begin dying. Like years before. With her blackouts, she fears she may be their killer and confides in Joey. While a Detective, investigating her husband’s and his daughter’s murders, complicates things.

Jenny suspects it’s her attackers doing the killings. They’ve found her and demand she joins them–or her family will die. When she resists, they kidnap her children; to save them, she becomes part of their killing spree. Becoming a monster like them…until she finds a way to outwit and ultimately destroy them.

In the end it takes supernatural intervention, a ghost, and the help of a childhood friend to set her, and the world, free from the vampires once and for all.
