In “Blood Magic,” Selina Anderson is a small-town woman with a big-time problem with vampires who are out to kill her before she can make them her next meal.

Book 2 – Selina Anderson, Vampire Hunter

“Blood Drops on the Virginia Trail:  A Novel,” has just been released on Amazon.

Selina Anderson, Vampire Hunter, is back in this sequel to “Blood Magic.” She is a small-town woman living in Culpeper, Virginia, torn between the forbidden desire for two beautiful men. Both men are strong and delicious but fight on different sides of the light and dark. In the meantime, a nation-wide pandemic has hit Culpeper requiring everyone to wear masks and social distance. The battle to develop a life saving vaccine draws the attention of vampires, were-animals, and other magical creatures.  Then, the Mayor of Culpeper turns up dead, murdered in cold blood.

I pulled back from the vision with a sense of elation knowing that I had made some progress.  Then Devlin’s lips were moving over mine slowly redirecting my energy.  I began to relax into him and kiss him back. His arm tightened like a vise around my waist.  He lowered me down onto the bed and kept me covered with the warm hardness of his body. My hands roamed his back feeling the tightly coiled muscles. I realized I had been anticipating the feel of him beneath my hands. Now, I could explore.

“Look at me,” he whispered against my lips. I looked into his sea green eyes dilated with passion.  He growled low in his throat. Then he was back to kissing me, but more fiercely. 


“Relax,” Devlin whispered into my ear as he ran his hands up and down my slick hips.  He reached around me to grab the bottle of shampoo. Then he began to lather my hair and gently massage my scalp.  I couldn’t help but shiver from his touch.

“This is probably not a good idea,” I sighed.

“What is not good about it?” he rumbled in my ear.  “No, on second thought don’t answer that.”

“Well, for one we are in the middle of this war …” I began anyway.  He turned me around and smashed my soft body against his demanding my full attention.  With swiftness he bent his much taller frame down to kiss me. His full lips lashed against mine taking control of my thoughts.  All I knew at that moment was the taste of Devlin and his body pressed against mine.
