Inside the Lives of the Characters in the Vampires in Manhattan series
By Susan Hanniford Crowley
Tall, dark-haired, and handsome vampire David Hilliard greets me at the door of his office at the Arnhem Society. He shakes my hand and leads me to a leather upholstered chair opposite his mahogany desk.
"Is your research progressing?" he asks.
"Yes, thank you. I'm visiting today so readers can get a look inside the lives of the vampires in Manhattan."
David nods and walking over to the window, pulls the black drapes apart.. "We love it when it rains, because we can go out into the city during the day. I love New York in the rain. It shimmers in the eye."
"You know, David, most people would shiver with you saying that."
He smiles with fangs flashing. "Well, they should. Not every vampire in New York City is civilized. It is the endeavor of the Arnhem Society to inspire every vampire to refrain from attacking humans. There are so many choices: blood banks, donors, and animal blood. Hunting humans is no longer necessary."
I cringe. "Perhaps if you explain the purpose of the Arnhem Knights."
"Yes." Almost on cue, three of the Arnhem Knights enter: Laura Cordelais (from The Stormy Love Life of Laura Cordelais), Trevor Stenwood (from A Vampire for Christmas) and Theo (from Vampire in the Basement).
Laura continues, "The purpose of the Arnhem Knights is to prevent human death at the hands of vampires."
"And to give aid to supernaturals in danger." Trevor finished the thought.
"It's difficult if they're afraid of you." Laura giggles and punches Trevor in the arm. Theo smirks.
"I'd like to ask something here." They all turned to me. "So why do you endorse the Vampires in Manhattan Series?
Tall blond Theo smiles without showing fangs. "We'd like people to stop shooting arrows at us. They should still exercise caution, but some of the vampires in the city are good guys."
Regina O'Malley is a college student who's just discovered she's magic. Today is the first day of her internship at a prominent brokerage house at the World Trade Center, and she's late. She doesn't know disaster is right around the corner.
Gregor Vasiliev is a financial advisor at the World Trade Center. This shapeshifter hates the office coffee, and while on a donut run he gazes out the window of his favorite coffee shop. There in the street stands the lifemate he's been searching for. If he doesn't act now, he'll lose her forever.
IT'S SEPTEMBER 11, 2001.
The Stormy Love Life of Laura Cordelais
Being descended from an ancient race blessed by Zeus doesn't help Telkhine Laura Cordelais, when she's desperate and standing between life and death. Her destiny looks bleak. Every choice leads to death, and there is no winning door. Or is there?
Begging God for love, Vampire David Hilliard finds his request answered in the form of the tormented and dying Laura. In saving her, he falls in love and dooms them both to a dark underworld of voodoo and sorcery from which nothing can escape.
THE STORM BEGINS
Curses, Keres, demons, oh, my! And the unicorn's horn.

Trevor Stenwood, a vampire and Arnhem Knight, is handsome, sophisticated, and tongue-tied every time he sees her. Sworn to protect the supernaturals of the city, he's fallen for a woman marked for death by demons. How can he save her when she's afraid of him?
At Christmas time in New York City, will love bloom in the snow?
