Summary

Award-winning "ghostlorist" Randy Russell admits to being flummoxed by cats. Some cats will give you whisker kisses or sit with you when you're sick. Others will invite you to rub them, then take a swipe at you, claws out. Some might do any of the above, depending on which way the wind is blowing. Visits from departed pets are easily the most common ghost experiences. And cats refuse to be left out of most anything. Ghost Cats of the South reveals that felines' beloved complexity continues well beyond the grave. In this haunting and entertaining volume, readers will meet the following: A cat smelling of chicken soup that saves a pair of street musicians in Kentucky; a face-hungry Mississippi cat that inhabits the seats of a vintage 1956 Chevy Bel Air; a porcelain cat that inspires girls at a North Carolina summer camp to reveal cherished secrets; a South Carolina feline that becomes part of a batch of moonshine; a piano-playing cat that fulfills the Thanksgiving wish of a Georgia grocery-store magnate; a soot-covered Louisiana cat whose fiery mission is to enforce a no-smoking ban; a Virginia cat that must get its owner his glasses before his coffin is sealed. Good ghost kitties, bad ghost kitties, ghost kitties in their many manifestations and moods—you'll meet them all in these twenty-two stories that the cats dragged in.
 
Randy Russell is the Edgar-nominated author of several books and collections of short stories, and co-authored, with his wife Janet Barnett, two volumes of southern Appalachian folklore and the highly popular Ghost Dogs of the South.  Russell presents ghost-lore programs to groups large and small across the South. He and his wife live outside Asheville, North Carolina.

    Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black's been catching her z's in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there's more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can't very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette. But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she'd meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman—dead or alive. 
    Rich, powerful, and drop—dead gorgeous, Victor's the perfect man for a novice neck—biter like Elvi. He's willing to teach her everything he knows, but he'll have to do it fast. Someone's out to put a stake through her new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe—and satisfied—for all eternity.

    Buckle up—the argeneaus are back in a sexy, witty new novel from New York times bestselling author Lynsay Sands 
    Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn’t expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full-body shock he feels whenever he’s near the vehicle’s driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate. 
    The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn’t feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn’t believe it. But now that the men who took Dante’s twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an immortal who’s the very definition of a perfect stranger.
