About the Author:

Kallysten’s most exciting accomplishment to date was to
cross a few thousand miles and an ocean to pursue (and catch!) the love of her
life. She has been writing for over fifteen years, and always enjoyed sharing
her stories and listening to the readers' reactions. After playing with science
fiction, short stories and poetry, she is now trying her hand, heart and words
at paranormal romance novels.

Blurred Nights

In a future world shattered
by the invasion of beast-like demons, humans are fighting back as well as they
can, using ancient weapons along with magic to defend their cities. Next to
them, vampires are fighting too – some for the thrill of it, others to hold on
to age-old Pacts, which demand that they protect humans.

When Kate’s squad of fighters
meets vampires Marc and Blake, she is torn. Her squad could use their help, but
the two men are distracting her from her duty. Night after night, they search
together for the breach between realities that allows the demons’ invasion.
They search, also, for the equilibrium that will allow Blake to forgive his
Sire, Marc to accept Blake as he is – and Kate to admit she is attracted to
both of them.

Can they find that delicate
balance before the demons destroy the squad?

 

His Sire’s New Pet

As Master vampire Alan
returns from a fight against demons, he is furious. His Childe, Jeremy, acted
foolishly on the battlefield and was hurt by a demon. For this, Alan will
punish him, and Jeremy knows and accepts it, kneeling at his Sire’s feet as
soon as he enters their lair. A human accompanied Jeremy home, however: his
lover and submissive, Tyler.

Right away, Tyler claims
responsibility for Jeremy being wounded and asks to be punished in his place.
Alan is initially reluctant to bring a novice into the relationship he shares
with Jeremy, but the appeal of playing with a new sub for a night wins him over
– and it doesn’t hurt that Jeremy and Tyler look very pretty kneeling next to
each other.

Will Tyler endure Jeremy’s
punishment until its very end, or will it prove too much for him? And how does
Jeremy feel about sharing his lover with his Sire for one night… or maybe more
than that?

 

Fangs &
Lullabies

A child’s birth. His first
teeth and first steps. School friends and bullies, recess, school plays and
science projects. A girl, a crush and a broken heart. These childhood
experiences are shared by countless little boys from different horizons.

And yet… Jacob is anything
but average. For as long as he has been able to understand, a secret has shaped
his life, kept even from his closest friends: his father, Andrew, is a vampire.
And so is his other father, Nicholas.

In a strange era when demons
are beginning to appear all over the world and threaten humans and vampires
alike, the three of them form quite an extraordinary family. And yet, at the
same time, they could hardly be more normal.

Two fathers raising a son
neither of them ever thought he would have. A Sire and Childe resuming their
relationship after years of estrangement. Through snapshots covering Jacob’s
life from birth to adulthood, discover this unusual family, and how, in the
end, all it takes is love.
