(A short story of about 6400 words—about 25 minutes of reading for the average reader)
Misti Wolanski has always loved to play in fantasy land, though it took her a while to realize that her mind games were fun enough that others would want to join in, too. In her spare time, she likes crocheting and knitting jewelry, baby clothes, and small toys. However, unlike the narrator in the popular-on-Wattpad A Fistful of Fire, she does not embroider.
She also writes dystopia (as Cara Lee), dark fantasy for adults (as Carralee Byrd), and space opera (as Misty White).

A simple promise to protect her friend’s infant son has turned Allie Chambers’ existence upside down. Caring for—and feeding—an orphaned vampire baby has been tricky enough. But as little Liam grows, so does his appetite. He needs more blood than she can personally supply. And when her attempts to steal from a blood bank go awry, Allie wakes up surrounded by doctors, cops…and the gorgeous, mesmerizing Magnus, who she can neither trust nor resist.
Magnus never expected to find his life mate breaking into a blood bank. Clearly, Allie is already entwined with his world—in deeper, more dangerous ways than she realizes. A band of vicious rogue immortals is in pursuit, and Magnus’ first task is to keep her safe. His second: to awaken her to mind-blowing pleasure, and hope she’ll accept the life, and the passion, that only he can offer.
After the life-changing week she had in Destiny’s Kiss, Destiny Walker knows she’s messed up, but she isn’t stupid. Her magic’s missing at the moment, and at least a few big-name Magiks want her dead. At least as property of the director of the vampire internal affairs agency, she has protections she wouldn’t have if she were a person.
The problem with the ‘property’ thing is what kind she is: concubine. Her owner ignores that part of it, perhaps because he’s fonder of her than is good for him. Regardless, after the abuse her previous owner put her through, she perfectly happy with the haven her new owner provides. She’s not the only one he protects, and she’ll do whatever she has to to keep him safe.
No matter who’s behind the attempts to kill him.
