A short story based on the character Evelyn Adrian from THE CAJUN GIRL.
A woman is left homeless after a fire destroys her apartment building in New Orleans, Louisiana. At the same time, a severe thunderstorm warning is issued. Trying to get out of the city at night in a downpour while caught in heavy traffic she makes a wrong turn. Evelyn finds a farmhouse by accident. About to knock and ask directions, the door creaks open.
The old dark house stood alone on the right side of a dirt road. Power lines came down when severe thunderstorms tore through southern Louisiana earlier in the day. She got a flashlight from the trunk of her car, and climbed the steps to the wraparound porch. A cool breeze rippled her T-shirt. Lightning cast her elongated shadow onto the door. About to knock and ask directions, the door creaked open. Evelyn backed up. A wind gust whipped her long hair in a frenzy. She took a deep breath and quickly exhaled. “Hello?” she called out in a soft tone, nudging the door open wider with the flashlight.
A cozy paranormal romance short story retelling of a holiday classic by USA Today bestselling author Mindy Klasky.
It’s beginning to look a lot like Yuletide…
And newlywed Jane Madison needs to find a gift for her warder David Montrose. A pen set and a necktie would be easy, but those are hardly gifts of the heart. Fortunately, Jane does a little witchy research and discovers the perfect present. But now that she’s found it, she’s not certain she can afford it – in terms of money or of magic! Will Yule turn out to be the most wonderful time of the year? Or is Jane destined for a blue Christmas?

Rule #1: Never get involved with someone who won't be there for you when the sun comes up.
Once bitten, twice shy, and sexy PI Jackie Morrisey wasn't going there again. Vincent Argeneau may be the hottest guy she's ever met, living or dead, but she's here to stop a killer from turning this vampire into dust, not to jump into bed with him.
Rule #2: Never kiss a vampire . . . it can be a pain in the neck.
Okay, so Vincent's had four hundred years to perfect his kissing skills, and he does look rather tempting when he runs around the house shirtless. He's also charming, protective . . . did we mention he can kiss? Jackie needs to be on her guard, or else she'll have to come up with a new rule: If you're going to fall in love with a vampire, make sure it's a bite to remember.
Here’s a roadmap to Edge of Night. Welcome to an eclectic collection of nine short stories.
You’ve done time at the edge of night. Nail-biting, stomach-churning time filled with hissing snarls, menacing growls, the whoosh of unnatural wings, and the flash of hellfire. Time that lasts forever, but is over within seconds because time becomes unpredictable in places like that. You don’t want to stay, but it’s too fascinating—in a grisly, macabre, toe-curling kind of way—to turn your back on. You recognize it, though. The place just at the threshold of darkness where it’s not quite safe anymore. Evil broke its bounds at the edge of night, or maybe it always ran free and we’ve been deluding ourselves all along.
Join me for nine supernatural tales. Monsters, demons, gods—fallen and otherwise—ghosts, aliens. A touch of science fiction. More than a splash of romance. From magical lands to a chilling glance into the past, Edge of Night has something to tempt everyone. Everyone who craves danger, that is. It takes guts to read the stuff woven into nightmares.
It’s a tough job, but you’re up to it.
Welcome to my world. A world where magic holds court and the dude next door just might be a demon. Or a shifter. Or an alien.
The last of the Dreamwalkers seeks answers in the long-lost Compendium, but the greatest mystery lies within his own past. With no memory, no family, and no allies—only the inherited ability to move from the physical realm into the collective unconscious called the Dreamscape—the Sleeping Man will fight against the conformity demanded by the Volto Empire's black and red standard.
The journey will be long and arduous as the Sleeping Man encounters a race of desert hunters guarding the Compendium, forest-dwelling Leshy who demand to count his rings, and the dreams of the dead.

Murdering Santa isn't the most festive way to spend Christmas.
The trouble is, The Department has already decided what Nessa's next assignment is going to be, and getting rid of Santa is a nonnegotiable. This Yuletide season, Nessa must leave her beachside shack in sunny Australia and head to the North Pole.
In the dead of winter.
Oh, for Satan’s sake.
Getting to Father Christmas isn't going to be easy. There's a whole village of Ice Elves who happen to be employed by Santa, and they’re not too pleased about Nessa trying to knock off their boss. Throw in a North Pole that's frozen solid, and maybe a pod of wereorcas – not to mention Nessa’s sneaking suspicion that someone (or something) has followed her from all the way Down Under to the ends of the earth...
'Tis the season for this folly.
And if she does finally manage to get to Santa, she'll have to... well... sleigh him.
What a holiday.
This is a novella, which means it's a bit shorter than the other books in this series. With plenty of witches, vampires, shapeshifters and festive magic, plus your old pals Death and Satan, this book is the perfect length to read in an evening.
