the Monster Misters
When my husband went on a business trip, I never expected him to come back...different. He doesn't know it, but I can see things: auras, monsters, good and bad. No one knows about my abilities. It's a secret I've kept most of my life. And his aura... It's changed from bright white to blue.
I don't know what blue means... Until he bites me. Because he's become a monster, and I'm wife bait.
Now, neither of us knows what to do. We vowed for better or worse, until death do us part. Aren’t vampires dead, though? Is it time for us to part? That idea just makes him angry. I’m leaving him over his dead body. But about that… Again. Vampires. Dead.
Our world's been turned upside down, and I just want to go back to normal, but normal? That no longer exists.
I work with the dead. Well, sort of. I’m security at the local funeral home. Don’t be fooled. It’s not too tough being a guard there. Creepy? Yes. Difficult? No.
Until Valentine’s Day and the dead man who was…undead. It turns into a date I never expected. Most girls get candy, roses and kisses for V-Day. Me…?
Well…things are sure starting out with a BITE.
I see monsters.
I’ve seen them since I was little, but no one believed me. After being orphaned, I kept quiet about it. Everyone forgot about my abilities. I’m just an ordinary girl next door. Nothing special.
Except I can still see the monsters.
I thought, maybe in my new town, I could put the past behind me. I should have known better. Turns out, girls like me? We’re special after all. We’re destined mates to these beings only we can see. When we turn twenty-one, we become monster magnets. We’re fair game for the chase. The first male to catch us...he’s our mate.
When the moon rises on my birthday this year, I’m straight up Monster Bait. But I have a plan. I’m getting away. My strategy works, too. Until he steps out of the shadows. He’s a monster unlike any I’ve ever seen. I’m not even sure what he is. But he knows me and he’s waited a long, long time to make me his.
