by Jeffe Kennedy
Two erotic tales of romantic horror. Earthquakes have torn the world apart and vampires are predators at the top of the food chain.
Feeding the Vampire
Through good luck and healthy cowardice, Misty has survived the earthquakes that have torn the world apart, but has no skills to speak of. Or so she thinks. She does have blood, and someone must feed the vampire who has offered his protection and strength in exchange for sustenance.
Feeding Ivan is a priority, and Misty finally serves a purpose. But when she awakens tied to his bed, an unwilling gift to Ivan from the townspeople, she discovers he has hungers other than blood. Hungers he expects her to satisfy in the most carnal manner. Under his seductive persuasion Misty discovers she has the power to sustain Ivan in all ways, while experiencing unspeakable pleasure herself.

Hunting the Siren
A vampire queen grown powerful with age, Imogen has protected her band of nightriders through the centuries. When refugee vampires from earthquake-shattered Europe seek shelter and sustenance, she’s honor-bound to feed them, by any means necessary. When her lieutenants dump the vengeful human man Kasar at her feet, Imogen succumbs to his masculine vitality and her overwhelming hunger for his blood–and his body.
Kasar has survived the breaking of the world, only to discover the vampire queen has slaughtered his sister and her unborn child. With the last of his bloodline dead, only his desire for vengeance keeps Kasar alive. He imagines he can pretend to succumb to Imogen’s seduction–not that he has much of a choice, chained as he is to the foot of her bed–and bide his time until he has an opportunity to kill her. The passion he finds in her arms is unexpected, and impossible to resist. But this haven of desire and satiation could easily destroy them both.

Excerpt & More
“I’ll do it,” I said.
And there I was—standing up in our circle of folding chairs before I realized I’d made the decision.
A few of the others glanced at me, dull surprise momentarily lifting their tired faces. They’d forgotten I was there, the invisible taker of notes. And likely no one expected finding a volunteer would be this easy. The rest of the Select Board and utility chairs didn’t look at me at all, filled with their guilty relief.
After all, nobody else wanted to feed the vampire.
The canister coffee percolator burbled in the background, over on the sparse table with the box of preservative-laden, grocery store donuts someone had dug out of their hoard and shared. Ironic, that all those bad-for-you foods were what we lived on now. I could be at any number of self-help meetings, standing to recite my name and addiction to create the impression I was honestly dealing with my issues.
The days of self-help were over, however, unless you counted struggling to stay alive. The ultimate self-help, really. The ever-present scent of mold floated on a base of hot aluminum and the smell of people who had more to worry about than daily hygiene. Fluorescent lights—thanks to the restored hydroelectric plant—hummed in the stark room with banal reality.
Luxuries, all of this, and everyone relished the carefully rationed electricity needed to light the stark church basement.
All to accommodate the vampire.
Before the earthquakes, none of us believed creatures like him really existed. Now we needed him.
And he needed us.
Directly across the circle, Ivan watched me, the burning hunger of a predator lighting interest in his gray eyes. I felt suddenly small and soft in my light sundress. The buzzing bulbs cast uncomfortable violet glints on his dark-blond hair. Even with the sallow shadows on his gaunt complexion, he attracted me. Attracted like a hapless bug to the sticky-sweet pink lure of the Venus flytrap.
I was compelled to feed him. I had no choice, really.
