Chaos can drive people together or apart.
Jackie Oceans is evolving through major life changes. Her best friend is finally moving his life forward and she’s attempting to let him go. Her power has risen to the surface, leaving her no choice but accept the truth. And now a charming vampire Stefano D’Angelo has taken an interest.
Eddie Swiftclaw has been saying he’s going to propose for months. Problem is, he’s not in love with his intended fiancé. His surfacing power further complicates matters.
Jackie seems to be everything Stefano has been missing since his wife passed away centuries ago. He can’t decide if it’s her resemblance to Eloise, or her true nature, that lures him. In the end, does it even matter?
Everything comes crashing down with the introduction of a new threat in Seattle. Jackie and Eddie will learn things they never expected. Will his loss and her new admirer push them together, or drive them apart?
Jake Stone comes to an island with a magical spring to have his only wish in life fulfilled: to be mortal again. As a vampire, he’s tired of the lonely and unfulfilling life he’s been living. Then he meets Claire Culver, a woman whose trip to the island is her last hope. She wishes for a miracle to cure her of a terminal illness.
Will her wish be granted, or will this be her last Christmas?
