James Stuart, the Earl of Forbes has spent the last grueling 800 years alone, never finding true love until the day he met Claire. The only problem is that James is carrying a huge secret within him and desperately trying to keep the world from finding out that he is indeed a vampire.
He has manage to walk among the living without being detected and only feeds on humans who are criminals or vagrants living in alleys. One fine day he bumps into Claire Collins and is instantly smitten and her feelings mirror his.
 
They spend the every possible moment they can with each other for rest of her vacation.
They day she departs he falls into a deep depressing and on impulse goes to get her. They become fast friends and lovers.
 
James ex Vanessa is still pining away for him and will stop at nothing to rid him of his new love attachment. So James takes Claire on a trip to meet some of his historical buddies and has them train her to battle against Vanessa.
I really liked that the romance was fast-paced not some drawn out time consuming courtship. Plus the use of the Rosary was pretty darn clever. I am not big on history but I really enjoyed learning some interesting tidbits and actually craved more. I have her new book which is her prequel to this one and I can't wait to get into it. Pick this up, you won't regret it!

This story takes place in the countryside of Pennsylvania where the corn fields seem to harbor some sort evil. Steven is sent to stay with his grand parents on their farm while his parents Bonnie and Barry try to sort out their marital problems- basically she wants to party and run around on him and he ain't having it!
 
Around the same time Steven is headed to the farm the infamous Manson murders have just occurred. it becomes an obsession to Steven that Manson will escape and hunt him down to kill him. One look at Charlie on the news scared the death out of that boy and that horrible face became imprinted in his mind.
His grandparents love having him but repeatedly warn him to stay out of those cornfields- so of course we all know what Steven's going to do right? Run into those damn dry husked fields and sees way more than he bargained for. He manages to make it out and suddenly strange occurrences start to happen in the house.
Each night is more intense then the next....is it spirits from the cornfield? Or could it be for some reason Mr. Manson himself would like to pay the little boy a nice visit? Will his parents ever work it out and be able to move on from the past? Cloris Leachman was a gem in this one, she reminded of my grandmother.
