Barely surviving as a dancer, a succubus who vowed never to kill again—and thus cannot truly feed—opens herself to new and risky possibilities.
Over eighty years after unintentionally killing a man whom she thought that she loved, a powerful and ancient huldra—a succubus originally from the northern forests of what is now Scandinavia—ekes out a minimalistic survival as an exotic dancer. Fearing that she might break her promise to herself to never kill another human being, she chooses abstinence over her own immortality. Unwilling to truly feed and risk killing, and unable to sustain herself on just the lust generated by her dancing, she is slowly succumbing to an all to human frailty—aging.
But aging is not her only problem. An unexpected and unwanted attraction to an unlikely man, combined with the strength of his feelings for her, makes her question herself and the tightrope that she has forced herself to walk between her vow not to kill and her own suppressed needs. So when another similarly powerful being shows her a path that might resolve her dilemma, she makes a bold decision, one that may place her in more danger than she realizes.

LITERARY FICTION WARNING: This entire series is Slice of Life Vignette Literary Fiction, meaning there’s a lot of dialogue, a lot of talking, a lot of thinking, a lot of monologue, and a lot of emotional introspective, but not much action going on in this heavily character driven series. Each story is a narrow focused look at a single event (often a single day or hour) in main character's life.
SERIES UNIVERSE: This is a Twighlight Manor Spin-off series which exists in the same alternate Earth dimension of The Twighlight Manor Universe. This series it is every bit as surreal, twisted, nonsensical, and bizarro as the rest of Twighlight Manor Universe books are.
SETTING: This series is set in the very real town of Old Orchard Beach, Maine. The Ross Forest is a real forest and is where I live. The Palace Playland is a real amusement park. The Pier is also real, as is most of the restaurants and businesses mentioned. If you ever come to visit Old Orchard Beach, Maine you can visit every one of the places mentioned in every one of these stories.
ABOUT THE SERIES: Each volume in this series is a separate stand alone story, not connected to any other volume in the set. They are connected by the fact that each story is set in the same town, which unbeknownst to the residents has been taken over by Alien Vampires and Zombies from outer space. Each volume is the story of one of the town's residents verses their personal encounter with one of the invaders.
NOTE: No these are NOT NOVEL LENGTH BOOKS! No matter how much Amazon says “Book 1”, “Book 2”, “Book 3” ect. I DID NOT put the word “BOOK” in the listing title. I put “VOLUME 1”, “VOLUME 2” etc. Amazon changed it to “BOOK” WITHOUT MY PERMISSION! Every volume in this series is a reprint of a FLASH FICTION story under 5,000 words (less then 10 pages) long. These are reprints of old magazine shorts I wrote in the 1970s/ 1980s/ 1990s. THEY ARE NOT NOVEL LENGTH BOOKS!
LANGUAGE & GRAMMAR NOTE: This series is NOT written in American nor UK English, but rather is written in the author's native language of Scottish Gypsy English. Spellings and punctuations are CORRECT for the language these books are written in.
