From "The Tarot Card Murders" one tale in my crime/mystery anthology "Flagitious".

“We’ve been expecting you,” she said, sinking her teeth into the night’s sacrifice...and Nick’s most horrific nightmare became reality.

This is from th Lassoing a Mail-Order Bride western romance anthology. My story is "A Permanent Woman".

This sentence is from my latest release, THE TROUBLE WITH DYING--a suspenseful chick lit read. The heroine has woken up to find she is looking down on her body in a coma.
