Fantasy Thriller
It has been two years, thirteen days, and twelve hours since the freaks came out of hiding. Now they are a part of everyday life; so vanilla that some people don't see the subtle shades of difference between them and the normal humans. 
But there are differences, and some humans will stop at nothing to make sure these freaks are never considered normal. Nowhere is this clearer than where very human Lilah Wright goes to school, JWB High school. 
Lilah was once a champion for the downtrodden and bullied, her former best friend, Oliver Payne, would attest to that. That was until the monsters from her nightmares came out of hiding and started living right alongside her friends and family just like it was the most natural thing in the world. 
Now the true spirit of tolerance will be tested within the changing face of the society. With a cast defiant parents and friends, intolerant social groups, and the newly integrated supernatural population the hallways of JWB High School and the town of Silver Falls becomes the center of a battle of conviction, tolerance, and acceptance. 

Can vampires, witches, shapeshifters, and all other sorts of supernaturals coexist with humans?

Two guys, one girl, and two dark secrets that threaten to tear her world apart.

Alice Wright is a young vampire going to high school for the first time at the age of seventeen at the behest of her eccentric mother. In many ways, she's more afraid of the human students than they would be of her.

She feels lost and awkward in human society, but she soon develops a strong bond with the cousin of one of her human classmates, nineteen year old Kai. He is beautiful, but somewhat of an enigma. She discovers a dark secret in Kai's life, and she instantly wants to shelter him from the pain that has tormented him all his life.

Then she meets Maksim Augustine, the incredibly gorgeous guy who seems more like he should be a model than a high school student. She is overwhelmingly attracted to him physically, but her love for Kai causes her to continually push him away. Eventually, she discovers a frightening secret about Max, too.

But Max's secret threatens to destroy everything...
A Tale of the Kavanaugh Foundation.

Espe enjoys the naughty games of hide-and-seek she plays with Greg. Not only does he satisfy her kink for having sex in public places along the Las Vegas Strip, but he also is a no-strings attached lover. Vampire hunters are strictly forbidden from forming serious relationships, so when Greg asks for something more, she’s not sure if she can break his heart, especially since the thought has crossed her mind more than she cares to admit. Before she can give him an answer, their liaison is interrupted by a vampire, and Espe is forced to choose between her dreams and her desires.

This is a short story that takes place between books 1 and 3 of the Kavanaugh Foundation series. It is a free read available on Crista McHugh's website starting May 1, 2011.

Homicide detective Reese Tarrant leaves the LAPD under a cloud of suspicion that he murdered serial killer Richard Lamb, dubbed by the media as the Anaheim Vampire for draining the blood from thirteen women. Because Lamb had once worked for billionaire Ajax Rasmussen, Reese drives up the coast to Santa Marina and Ajax's palatial mansion overlooking the Pacific.

Archeologist Rusty Webber has been hired by Ajax to investigate Indian skeletons found behind the Santa Marina Mission. It is a job she views with ambivalence: the last time she worked for Ajax, searching for Dracula’s tomb, she was nearly raped and executed by Romanian rebels. Rusty doesn't trust Ajax, but he has the money to resurrect a career stalled by charges she killed a fellow archeologist.

Ajax Rasmussen, CEO of Cirrus Industries, the world's premier chemical conglomerate and whole blood fractionator, is a respected businessman and philanthropist, owns a dozen Picassos, courts royalty, prime ministers, and presidents, and is a success by any standard.

Reese is in the formerly quiet town only a few days when a priest is found butchered and hanging by his feet at the mission, the owner of a gothic book store is drained of blood, and a young cop Reese has befriended is hacked to death. When Rusty is arrested for killing the priest, Reese provides an alibi and they soon find themselves coming to the conclusion that Ajax may not be the man he claims to be.

Twelve year old Lissie is the apple of her parents eye and she can do no wrong. But, after committing a terrible deed in order to attend her parents ball, she finds herself at the mercy of a vampire consumed by guilt.
