The Tristram Cycle
A mysterious, handsome, altogether magical young man arrives in Mystic Falls, winning the attention of everyone … and, before long, the heart of Bonnie Bennett, the town’s most accomplished (and alluring) witch. But is his sudden appearance in Mystic Falls a coincidence, or is he after something more sinister? Bonnie knows how to look after herself and is ordinarily a shrewd judge of character. But she now finds herself oddly powerless and indecisive in the stranger’s presence. That’s what can happen when the heart keeps intercepting messages sent from the brain.
With Blood on His Hands
Stefan, the good vampire brother, returns home to Mystic Falls in a mesmerizing short story collection inspired by the best-selling young-adult series, The Vampire Diaries. Kinder and more tender-hearted than Damon, his malevolent older brother, well-intentioned Stefan returns home to help his true love, the series’ intrepid teenage heroine, Elena. Too soon, however, Stefan realizes he poses a threat to those he holds dear when he begins sleepwalking. Making matters more dangerous still, these nocturnal wanderings may include deadly midnight snacks. Bonnie is an apprentice witch who, in exploring her powers, is revisited by the ghosts of former lovers. Can the young sorceress learn how to properly employ the fire inside or will the spreading flames of Bonnie’s unkempt passion burn and destroy everyone she loves?
Elena’s no-nonsense best friend, Bonnie Bennett just wants to explore her powers – to learn more about being a nice, reasonable witch and making her grandmother proud. Bonnie’s intentions are noble, but her quest soon becomes more difficult and dangerous than she could have imagined when the angry ghosts of her family’s past come flooding back to haunt her. Bonnie, you see, comes from a long line of witches, not all of whom were as well intentioned as she. And it turns out the Bennett witches have made quite a history out of burning and betraying lovers and friends who dared enter their lives. Can Bonnie summon all that is good within and learn to handle the passionate, consuming fire inside? Or will her dark instincts rise boiling to the surface, scorching everyone who reaches out to love her?
