A Love to Die For

Hello. My name is Samantha Martin. I’m a mother, an FBI Agent, and until recently, the object of hatred for my very own stalker.

My nightmare began the night the Three Fates decided to amuse themselves by preempting my spur-of-the-moment rendezvous with my übersexy partner Mark O’Connell.  Needless to say, I bypassed pissed and rocketed straight to postal. Of course, the Fates had to get creative with their interruption.  They tossed together a home invasion, a little gunfire, and voila! Police Officer Ryan Stephens lay unconscious in my front yard. 

Ryan had been my lover eight years ago. He was also the father of my son—the son I’d never had the chance to tell Ryan about. My life quickly spiraling out of control, I discovered a link between my break-in and a line of dead bodies reaching back fifteen years. With Mark and Ryan vying for my attention, I sat out on a mission for justice but what I found was a psychotic killer whose tortured past was eerily similar to mine.

Woman in the Mist

Love is magical, but sometimes, magic is just an illusion…

In two days, Nicole Higgins is going to die—only she doesn’t know it. Unknowingly cursed because of an act of revenge she committed in another lifetime, this seventh-generation witch has suffered countless deaths at the hands of a demon who, in his own twisted game of vengeance, has vowed never to let Nicole’s soul rest.

On the eve of the Summer Solstice, a request for help brings FBI behavioral analyst Andrew Daniels to the small town of Devils Mist, Arkansas. Local law enforcement fear a string of seven murdered women are linked to the occult, but Andrew thinks differently. He’s spent the better part of his career debunking occult myths and is confident these murders are nothing more than the result of a “classic” psychotic mind. Then, he meets Nicole, and everything he’s ever believed is turned upside down.

Andrew and Nicole have no knowledge of their shared past lives together, only the corresponding nightmares that have tormented them since childhood. Now, armed with the images of their dreams—and several more clues from a very unexpected source—can these ill-fated lovers finally find a way to keep history from repeating itself? Or will this lifetime also end in tragedy?
