Cemetery Seduction

Abby, a half witch, half vampire whose powers go awry in a club, has to run, afraid that the Others, who are policing all human/magick interaction, might put her in jail. She ends up in a cemetery, jumps behind a bush and lands right on top of a very sexy ghost hunter.

No Place I'd Rather Be

Sonora is torn between a human and a vampire. How can she choose between the man who makes her feel safe and the vampire that makes her blood race? Sonora prays to the Goddess for guidance while harboring secret desires that her broody vampire, Brom, and her brawny human, Avery, can get past their jealousy and be willing to do more than just share the witch in the middle.

Can the Goddess grant Sonora's wish, or will she be stuck making an impossible choice?

Contains m/f/m and m/m

Complete Circle

Lissette is a vampire who has lived with her succubus girlfriend, Cassandra, for a long time. She swore off relationships with men after being viciously raped by the vampire hunters who killed the love of her life and left her for dead.

Lissette and Cassandra only use men to get what they need, blood for Lissette and sexual energy for Cassandra. They are completely satisfied with their lives- until a mysterious stranger comes along.

For the first time in centuries Lissette wants a man. Why is she so drawn to him? What is he?

Much more than a mere mortal, Gabriel has been searching for Lissette and Cassandra for a very long time. They have what he needs, what no one else can give him.

But will they be willing to share?

The World of the Vehicle City Vampires

By Roxanne Rhoads

Hex and the Single Witch: Vehicle City Vampires Book One is paranormal romance/urban fantasy series based in and around my hometown of Flint, Michigan.

The original background for the story came to me while I was driving through downtown Flint one day. After leaving the main strip of Saginaw Street that is the “downtown” area, surrounding areas and neighborhoods look like ghost towns. Businesses are boarded up, empty, and falling apart. Houses are even worse off. There are entire neighborhoods in and around Flint that are completely or almost completely empty. Out of fifty houses two may still have residents.

That’s scary on so many different levels.

Suddenly an idea popped into my head- “what if, after all the humans left, Others started moving in?”

And the basic back story of my series came to life. Flint, Michigan becomes a hotbed of supernatural activity. Ghosts, ghouls, vampires, demons and were-creatures move in and become the majority making the human population the minority.

Most of the remaining humans don’t even realize Others walk among them. A mass Hysteria of the late twentieth century almost eradicated entire species of Others- humans and Others were at war. Causalities were many on both sides. To end the war and stop the Hysteria a mass worldwide spelling was cast that made humans once again lose their memories that Other folk exist. (This spelling was massive, exhausting, and performed by magic wielding Others of many species and broadcast over radio waves, television signals and via satellite to reach as many people around the globe as possible- the spell also has to be maintained periodically)

Most humans think that vampires, were-creatures and all types of Others are just movie magic and works of fiction. The spelling was so successful that Others can now walk openly among the humans and never be suspected of being Other.

The only people that see Others as the beings they really are- are those who have the faintest drop of Other in their blood and those who were so strong willed the spelling didn’t take, and of course teenagers and children who were born after the spelling took place.

The problem with this scenario is that not all Others are harmless, there are those thrive on danger, fear, and despair and revel in destruction.

So to keep the Others in line and keep supernatural crime to a minimum the Preternatural Investigation Team (dubbed the PIT Crew) was created as a special task force for the Flint Police Department.

Recruits for the PIT Crew are either Others or humans that know Others exist.

The main character of my book is Detective Anwyn Rose. She is an Other, a witch to be precise but her magic hasn’t ever been too flashy, however she has the ability to “know” things. Either by touch or just a direct line into someone’s mind, Anwyn is very useful at a crime scene. She can see what happened just by touching the victim or an object at the scene.

Her partner, Detective Mike Malone is human, and not too friendly with the “monsters”. However he has a thing for Anwyn even if technically she could be labeled as one of the “monsters”, but Anwyn has a thing for a vampire, Galen. To Malone a vampire is the worst of all monsters especially when Anwyn’s love interest turns out to be the prime suspect in a string of killings they are investigating.

The whole situation leads to heated arguments, steamy encounters, a lot of misfiring magic- and a hot love triangle.

And all that began with just a drive around Flint one day.
A couple of my previous short stories are set in the same world as the Vehicle City Vampires series and appear in the short story collection Paranormal Pleasures Ten Tales of Supernatural Seduction.

A few of the stories and characters are linked in with the VCV series, particularly the story Renata which is set in Flushing.

I would say Flushing is Flint’s richer, prettier neighbor. The vampire Renata has ties to Markus, who happens to be Detective Mike Malone’s uncle. I can’t divulge much more than that or I would give away plot twists in both Renata and Hex and the Single Witch but I expect Renata, Tony and Markus (all from the story Renata) to make appearances in this new series. Not in Book One other than a quick mention, but possibly in book two.

The Questioning Concubine and Witching You a Merry Christmas are also set in the Vehicle City Vampire World.

My newest book, Paranormal Pleasures II, contains several shorts also set in the Vehicle City Vampires world.
Anwyn Rose, the main character from VCV Hex and the Single Witch even makes an appearance in Underneath the Fangs and My Demon Valentine.
My Demon Valentine also offers a special treat for VCV fans…a couple scenes featuring Anwyn will appear from her point of view in Hex and the City, Vehicle City Vampires Book 2, which is scheduled to be released later this year.
An Unexpected Eveningthis one is set in the VCV world but characters or locations are not mentioned until we get to the second Katerina and Samuel story, Underneath the Fangs.

Samuel is a centuries-old vampire who prefers to be a recluse. He is always afraid of losing control and becoming the monster he once was. Falling in love with a young witch has pushed his boundaries and pulled him out of his comfort zone.

Katerina always encourages Samuel to be more open, to let loose, and to really "live" instead of only existing in the shadows.

One night, he finally grants her wish . . . in ways she never imagined.

Underneath the Fangs- this one brings the location of Flushing into the story, pulls in the P.I.T Crew and Anwyn Rose makes an appearance.

Samuel is being framed for murder. Katerina knows he is not guilty but she has to convince Samuel that he is not a monster and that he is worthy of her love.

Cemetery Seduction- this story is also set in Flushing, in the VCV world, but it is set a little in the future as compared to the VCV novels.

Abby, a half witch, half vampire whose powers go awry in a club, has to run, afraid that the Others, who are policing all human/magick interaction, might put her in jail. She ends up in a cemetery, jumps behind a bush and lands right on top of a very sexy ghost hunter.

No Place I'd Rather Be – this one is set in the VCV world a bit into the future, they are detectives and consultants- part of the P.I.T Crew but we haven’t seen them in the VCV books yet. Mike Malone will hire and recruit them in the VCV books later.

Sonora is torn between a human and a vampire. How can she choose between the man who makes her feel safe and the vampire that makes her blood race? Sonora prays to the Goddess for guidance while harboring secret desires that her broody vampire, Brom, and her brawny human, Avery, can get past their jealousy and be willing to do more than just share the witch in the middle.

Can the Goddess grant Sonora's wish, or will she be stuck making an impossible choice?

Contains m/f/m and m/m

My Demon Valentine- Elita is Anwyn’s cousin. Her story was featured in the first Paranormal Pleasures collection in the short, The Questioning Concubine. This second short story featuring Elita ties directly into the Vehicle City Vampires world and features two scenes that will be retold from Anwyn’s point of view in the upcoming book, Hex and the City.

Elita wants to give her demon boyfriend a Valentine’s Day to remember. Connor was built for giving pleasure but Elita wants to turn the tables on that.

This time the pleasure will be all his.
