Now the witches are involved in a deadly game of hide-and-seek,

Hope Memorial. Her faith is put to the test when a body arrives at the morgue
drained of blood and the man responsible for the crime is sporting fangs. Could
vampires be real?
Her good friend, Dr. Xander Carlisle seems to know the truth, but

Brice Huntington. It seems the Dalton's and Huntington's have been waging a

from "Man of Her Dreams:"
"Oh, good grief," said a woman's voice
from nowhere. "The old 'naked in public' dream. You sure this is him? This
is the man in my dreams? Where's the wild mare he rides across the moor, and
the kilt, and the windswept hair, and the—all right, so he's got the washboard
abs, and the...the rest of the package. But still..."
"The spell doesn't lie, Sis," responded
another woman's voice from nowhere. "This is the man of your dreams.
Anyway, a kilt? I think it's time you got rid of that Braveheart poster. The
symbolism of his dream is obvious, according to your Psych 101 textbook I doubt
you ever read—about as obvious as your man riding a wild mare. Does your kilted
dream lover whip the mare into a lathered frenzy?"
"He d-doesn't...you've got a dirty mind. So
what's this guy's problem? A fear of being locked out of motel rooms?"
The second voice sighed. "He's unhappy with
his life and searching for something better. Being naked means he's broke, so
don't count on lavish gifts or expensive honeymoons from this guy. How many of
the good catches had insomnia, for the spell to settle on this loser?"

Corona is a massage therapist by day and enjoys the adventures of writing by
night. When she's not sitting at her computer plotting her next tale, she's
enjoying the Southern California weather. She loves movies, animals of all
kinds, especially her three dogs, and she's a big fan of mermaids. When she was
young and saw the movie Splash for the first time, she believed sprinkling salt
in the bathtub would magically allow her to grow a tail. She was sadly
disappointed when the experiment didn't work. If she can't be a mermaid, then
maybe she'll just have to write about them.
