Priscilla said, "May I help you?"
"Yes, as a matter of fact you can. I'm here to see Dr. Carvington. I answered an ad in the local newspaper about needing an assistant in some of his experiments," said the young man.
"I didn't catch your name," said Priscilla.
"If you must know my name is Pierre."
"Well Pierre my name is Priscilla I'm Dr.Carvington's daughter."
"I didn't know the doctor had such a beautiful daughter," said Pierre.
"Thank you, kind sir. Now if you'll follow me, I'll take you to see my father," said Priscilla.
Pierre and Priscilla couldn't take their eyes off each other. As they were headed down the steps to the laboratory Priscilla held Pierre's hand and asked him if he had a girl friend.
Pierre said, "No, it's been a long time since I've been in any kind of relationship."
"I would like to be your girl friend if you like," said a blushing Priscilla.
"I would like that very much Priscilla," said a quiet spoken Pierre.
"Well here we are, this is my father's laboratory. What do you think?" said Priscilla.
"This is a nice set up you got here, Dr. Carvington," said Pierre.
"I'm sorry, I forgot to introduce myself," said Pierre.
"My name is Pierre. I answered your ad in the newspaper about the need for an assistant."
"Nice to meet you Pierre when can you start?" said Dr. Carvington.

"Yes, that sounds great." said Dr. Carvington.
"Pierre why did you apply to my ad in the newspaper?" said Dr. Carvington.
"Well Dr. Carvington my mother has been very ill and the doctor bills have been piling up and I've always dreamed of working for a great doctor such as yourself." said Pierre.
"I believe you'll like working with me because I'm working on a scientific breakthrough in the medical field. Does that sound exciting or not to you Pierre?" said Dr. Carvington.
"Sure does Dr. Carvington," said Pierre.
"Pierre there's going to be times when the experiment might fail. If anything should go wrong and the patient dies there is a cemetery about a hundred yards in back of my laboratory where they will be buried."
"Each patient has to sign a waiver form stating that Dr. Carvington will not be held responsible for anything that goes wrong, including death. I've already buried a half a dozen bodies in the cemetery behind my laboratory," said Dr. Carvington.
"Dr. Carvington what kind of experiments are you working on?" said Pierre.
"Pierre, What I'm about to tell you doesn't leave this room. Do you understand?"
"Yes, Dr. Carvington, I do understand. I won't tell a soul," said Pierre.
"Pierre, what I'm about to tell you, you're going to think I'm mad but I tell you this will be a breakthrough that will bring me the notoriety and the respect of the medical field," said Dr. Carvington.

And Clay and Silas have no problem possessing Eli and Jess in order to express their love for each other, without thought for the living.
Deeply disturbed by the experience, Eli and Jess part and try to get on with life as best they can. But after several years, Eli returns to Florida, only to find that Jess has made some questionable choices. These eventually lead him back to the abandoned house and a confrontation with Eli.

One of the "Rubs" most frequent non-paying customers was Gerald Tucker who stood six foot three and all the masseuses didn't dare cross him because of his mean temper and violent tendencies towards them. Mr. Tucker was in for a big surprise this time because Lamia was going to give him the massage of death.
Before her father can kick her out of the house, Caroline runs away to join the circus. She’s far from the oddity or performer that Arcanium is known for, but the fortune teller grants her wish to become a part of his circus and assigns her to run the carousel.
It’s repetitive work and the quarters are cramped, but it’s the perfect job while Caroline figures out what the hell she’s going to do with her life.
Then some of the creepy carousel mounts—the ones that look like tormented human men—start coming to life at night. At first she thinks they’re just dreams, but she quickly discovers that Arcanium is no ordinary circus.
Caroline must not only come to grips with the shady motivations and affections of her new colleagues, but also with the driven desire inside her for Riley and Colm—the men bound to the carousel to atone for their sins, who beg her to save them.
Finally, after two years of mourning, Zac's brother has agreed to sell the house he all but abandoned after the death of his wife.
In the spirit of helping his brother move on, and of course the continuous harassment from his sister, Zac agrees to take a much-needed vacation from work and pack up what remains of Rose's belongings. What his family doesn't know—actually, no one knows—is that Zac never quite stopped being in love with Rose, not after they broke up in high school and certainly not after she married his brother.
Zac is well aware that a weekend spent packing up what's left of the only woman he's ever loved will be little more than torture...with a side of emotional hell (alcohol sold separately).
Upon arrival, he immediately notices how the house and the surrounding garden have fallen into disrepair. It isn't until nightfall that he truly starts to realise just how...disturbed the house really is. After a few doors slam and the phrase 'writing on the wall' comes to life before his very eyes, Zac is terrified enough to flee. But before he can make it to the door, he is confronted with the ghost of his sister-in-law, Rose.
However, the sultry seductress before him and his sweet, shy Rosie are two very different entities. And as much as he would like to believe otherwise, it seems this rose is all thorns.
Can he stop himself from touching her regardless?

The Order Of The Bear Series:
Something Shifter This Way Comes
The Secret Lies In The Shade
The Advent Of The Witch
From The Shadows A Psychic Will Rise
The skies were blue that day their flight took off for the Aztec Ruins expedition. Dr. Murray sat next to Dr. Bell on the plane. Dr. Murray's over active imagination was already kicking in. Dr. Murray's mouth wouldn't shut up during the flight. Dr. Murray was telling stories about his great uncle Henry who was an arcaheologist. Henry was part of the first archaeologist's that made significant discoveries at the Aztec Ruins. Of course Dr. Bell knew that was a lie because Dr. Bell knew Dr. Murray's uncle Henry was a drunk and the only thing remotely close to him being an archaeologist was digging up bones in his back yard. Dr. Bell finally heard enough of Dr. Murray's far fetched stories and put his headphones on and turned up the music to drown out Dr. Murray's motor mouth.
Dr. Murray said, "I guess I'll just read a magazine."
Dr. Bell just closed his eyes and slept as the music poured through his headphones drowning out any background noise, including
Dr. Murray. The small twin engine plane carrying the seven archaeologists finally landed at their destination, the Aztec ruins. The seven archaeologists got their luggage and were transported to their hotel where they would be staying during the expedition. The archaeologists got something to eat, then got dressed and gathered their equipment for the expedition. The seven archaeologists piled in the van with their equipment and headed to the Aztec ruins to start the expedition. The archaeologists weren't even on the road five minutes when Dr. Murray's stories started flying out of his mouth. The drive to the dig site was about an hour away. The other archaeologist’s weren't interested in Dr. Murray's stories. So they talked amongst each other and talked over Dr. Murray trying to drown out his conversation.
"At last were here," said Dr. Bell.
Dr. Bell was in charge of the Aztec expedition. Dr. Bell and the other six archaeologist's were led to the Aztec ruins by a guide to get them familiar with the ruins. Dr. Murray didn't like playing second fiddle to no one and wasn't really interested in the ruins. Dr. Murray had his eyes set on something much bigger. The something much bigger was three crystal skulls.

After one too many demons leave her for other women, Valorie, the circus contortionist, is thinking about quitting Arcanium. It’s not that she hates performing, but she’s been in Arcanium for almost twenty years. She’s bored, feeling neglected and rejected, and there’s nothing keeping her there anymore.
Until ex-lover Bell, the fortune teller and owner of Arcanium, gives her the fire-eater—bound and gagged—as a present and a bribe to convince her to stay.
John—cursed into Arcanium and heavily scarred from fires gone out of control—turns out to be an adequate distraction. He’s almost sweet, in spite of the bad person he used to be—a decent enough pet willing to work his way to redemption in Valorie’s collar and under her command. Valorie’s just not sure whether he’s enough.
Especially when her former fiancé from twenty years ago stumbles upon the circus and discovers where his would-be wife disappeared to.
Gabe Richards is a wealthy businessman with enough wounds of his own to make him afraid of ever being intimate again. But when he sees Todd outside his building, freezing to death, he takes pity on him and takes him in from the cold.
