Summary

Georgetown County, located between Myrtle Beach and Charleston, South Carolina, is steeped in tales of dynamic men and women who once lived and prospered here. Though these men and women have now passed away, many of their spirits still remain. There are rumored to be over a hundred ghosts in the area, making Georgetown County one of the nation's most haunted locations. Ghosts of Georgetown tells the stories of twenty of these apparitions. The ghosts in these tales range from the woman who died a horrible and tragic death on her wedding day, to the daughter of a former lighthouse keeper who warns sailors of impending storms, to the phantom choir whose voices can still be heard coming from the ruins of its former church. The stories tell of scorned lovers, innocent children, and wealthy plantation owners who have all returned to Georgetown long after their natural lives on earth were over. These tales weave the history of Georgetown's colorful past with the eerie spirits who roam the region in the present.

    Four novels of the punk vampire hunter from the Bram Stoker Award–winning author and “most original voice in the world of vampire fiction since Anne Rice” (Film Threat).   Saved by modern medicine before she could die, Sonja Blue is a living vampire who still possesses a soul and is determined to hunt down creatures that prey on the innocent, while searching for the vampire lord who created her.  Sunglasses After Dark: As Sonja investigates a sleazy televangelist named Catherine Wheele, she finds herself up against a powerful inhuman adversary. Her greatest foe remains the Other, the demonic personality with whom she is locked in a constant battle for control of their shared body. Can Sonja overcome her inner demon in time to rescue an innocent man from Catherine Wheele’s unholy clutches?  In the Blood: As Sonja continues to take out her rage on demonic blood-drinkers, her hunt is attracting attention: Morgan, the vampire lord who remade her twenty years ago, wants to bring his beloved daughter to heel. At the same time, Sonja has found her existence entwined with that of a mortal—a psychic detective. Is love possible for someone like her?  Paint It Black: Following a self-destructive affair in New Orleans, the Other, Sonja’s demonic alter ego, is stronger than ever. And when Sonja learns that Morgan may be behind a string of murders in New York City, she heads straight for a face-to-face showdown.  A Dozen Black Roses: A city within a city where the undead roam free, Deadtown is dangerous for humans and vampires alike. As a gang war rages between the old guard and the new, Deadtown’s innocents are caught in the crossfire. Only Sonja Blue can save them. To see justice done, she will play both ends against the middle to save Deadtown—or else burn it to the ground.   Award-winning author Nancy A. Collins’s punk vampire series helped give rise to the urban fantasy genre and her “bone-colored, blood-smeared star—for she is certainly a star—stands bright and hot at the pinnacle of the horror heap” (Joe R. Lansdale).

    That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert—he's the main course! 
    Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that? 
    Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly—once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.
