Gage McAllister, the oldest vampire in The Lost Boys Rock Band, tries to stay away from the brave young woman who helped him recover from a debilitating stab wound five years ago. She reminds him of his past love and he vowed centuries ago to never go down that path again. Only he's constantly drawn to her. It's as though some invisible force keeps pushing him in her direction and his need to protect her is overwhelming.


Acelynn Baird finds Gage intriguing yet dangerous and knows she should stay clear of him. She senses something powerful about him and even though she has dabbled in witchcraft, she's not sure she's ready to discover the secrets that lurk under the cover of darkness. Except fate keeps shoving them together and that old attraction she had for him when she was just a kid only grows stronger with each encounter.


A past that haunts, a steamy desire that fuels the burn, and a passion like no other sizzles.

About the author

Susan writes paranormal and contemporary romance—steamy and sexy are the way they usually turn out. She's a huge fan of superheroes and bad boys confronted with extraordinary forces of nature, powers, and abilities beyond the norm mixed with hot, blow-your-socks-off romance. 


She grew up in a small town in Pennsylvania doing a lot of daydreaming. It’s no big surprise that she writes romance stories, since many nights as a child she would lay awake fantasizing about her knight in shining armor. 


Her wild imagination sparked her first story at the age of twelve; a story that her sixth grade teacher adopted for the class play that year. Having never achieved fame and fortune for that play, she attempted life the normal way with other activities, such as, working as a food lab technician, bartender, and cell phone repair technician, and a mom.


Now she lives in Northern California with a gorgeous view of Folsom Lake from her office where she stills spends a lot of time daydreaming. She loves to drink wine and fortunately there are several local wineries close by. Together, she and her modern day knight have five great superhero kids and nine mini-superhero grandkids, so far.

When she's not writing, she enjoys hanging out with friends and family drinking wine and dancing.

She was everything he’d learned to hate, but she was also everything his soul desired.


Chelle Masterson:


I’m done with vampires.


Especially rock and roll playing vampires.


I may be a new vampire, but that doesn’t mean I’m naïve. And I don’t like being treated that way. I only want to find my place in this new and scary life I’ve been cursed with. Unfortunately, trouble seems to follow me wherever I go, starting with my very first attempt to feed on my own …

But then I come face to face with a very charming stranger who seems to want to help, but can I trust him?


Josh Barrett:


He knows his priorities—reporting the news by day, drinking himself into a self-loathing stupor by night. His workaholic tendencies can’t completely mask the horrific night that changed his life forever … until a beautiful, sexy, and an utterly mysterious woman enters his life and changes everything.


“Captivated by this Book! Chelle and Josh have such amazing chemistry. Alluring, Tantalizing me with her beauty. Sweet mother of God, help me. I was falling in love with a vampire.”


“Sweet Innocent Love. Love knows what it wants even when those involved don’t. A wonderful read, and wonderful continuation to the Immortal Hearts of San Francisco Series!”


“Captivated and I don’t care who knows it! 5 Captivated stars!!! I'm hooked on this series! After reading book one, I knew I was in love. So the minute I got my hands on this book, I knew I'd gobble it up in one sitting... and that's exactly what I did. This book is just as captivating (no pun intended) as the first book!! The details and the story will pull you in and you won't want to stop reading this book until the end!! I love all things vampires and this book was perfect!!”


“Gotta Love Those Vampires Damn these vampires are so awesome! They are good people...the author again brought the ‘family’ out again but this is Chelle's story. Oh and her human Josh. They both have demons that are going to be hard to get rid of. Can she resist his blood? Will he see her as a monster? Can they find love?”

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • NOW A STARZ ORIGINAL SERIES 

Unrivaled storytelling. Unforgettable characters. Rich historical detail. These are the hallmarks of Diana Gabaldon’s work. Her New York Times bestselling Outlander novels have earned the praise of critics and captured the hearts of millions of fans. Here is the story that started it all, introducing two remarkable characters, Claire Beauchamp Randall and Jamie Fraser, in a spellbinding novel of passion and history that combines exhilarating adventure with a love story for the ages.

One of the top ten best-loved novels in America, as seen on PBS’s The Great American Read!

Scottish Highlands, 1945. Claire Randall, a former British combat nurse, is just back from the war and reunited with her husband on a second honeymoon when she walks through a standing stone in one of the ancient circles that dot the British Isles. Suddenly she is a Sassenach—an “outlander”—in a Scotland torn by war and raiding clans in the year of Our Lord . . . 1743.

Claire is catapulted into the intrigues of a world that threatens her life, and may shatter her heart. Marooned amid danger, passion, and violence, Claire learns her only chance of safety lies in Jamie Fraser, a gallant young Scots warrior. What begins in compulsion becomes urgent need, and Claire finds herself torn between two very different men, in two irreconcilable lives.

This eBook includes the full text of the novel plus the following additional content:
• An excerpt from Diana Gabaldon’s Dragonfly in Amber, the second novel in the Outlander series 
• An interview with Diana Gabaldon 
• An Outlander reader’s guide
