"The tales in this collection span the past ten years of my writing career. Most can be described as romances, and all involve love and passion in some form. Here you will encounter vampires, elves, ghosts, and at least one human-monster hybrid. The vampire stories in the first half of the book belong to an ongoing series based on 'Vanishing Breed,' a story by my husband in my first anthology, Curse of the Undead (1970). 'Vanishing Breed' (which also appears in Tomorrow Sucks, edited by Greg Cox, still in print) postulates that the creatures we know as vampires belong to an alien species secretly living among us. You can get better acquainted with them in my novels, Dark Changeling, Sealed in Blood, and Crimson Dreams, and two novellas, 'Night Flight' and 'Tall, Dark, and Deadly' (which stars Claude from 'Voice from the Void').
