Overview

Can a witch gain her freedom to live as she chooses between Memorial Day and the Fourth of July?

A man was not exactly what Meranda was looking for when she went to her grandfather’s grave for a ritual of remembrance on Memorial Day. However, what she thinks is a ghost in the heavy shadows of the night ends up a vampire.

When Meranda’s grandfather lay dying on a bloody battlefield in WWII, Alexander promised the man he would take care of his family if he got out of the war alive. Even though he returned to the states a night walker, he has done his best to honor that promise from a distance.

When Meranda is hurt due to his negligence, Alexander valiantly fights his own desires for her blood to save her. Only, once she is better, their lives clash. But, using a little magic, she plans to win their war by the time the fireworks light up the sky on Independence Day.

Editorial Reviews

. - Vampirique Dezire
I found the settings to be highly descriptive, giving the reader the ability to not only picture the setting in your mind but to feel the elements that surround the characters.Kiki portrayed the two characters Meranda and Alex, with depth, emotion and extraordinary perception.The desire that the two of them feel is palpable and literally burns the pages... The sensuality and eroticism Kiki describes certainly had this reader breathing heavily...
. - Stacey Reviewer
Kiki Howell does a great job of keeping [the story] moving while giving us history of the characters, a depth and range of emotion and some steamy bedroom scenes...a hot, quick read that explores true love and what we are willing to do to accept it in our lives.
. - Merrylee Reviewer
The scene where Meranda uses Mr. Blue to entice Alex back into her bedroom is one of the most erotic and well-written sex scenes I've ever read, and the ending of the book couldn't have been more apropos or more well done.

Meet the Author

Ever since she was young, Kiki Howell loved to listen to a well-woven tale with real characters, inspired plots, and delightful resolutions. Kiki could spend hours lost in a book, and soon she knew that creating lives, loves, and losses with just words had to be the greatest thing that she could do.

To that end, she pursued her study of literature and writing, earning a bachelor’s degree in English. She then followed in a Master’s program in Creative Writing.

“After a long break having my boys, I finally just had to write again. And, as soon as I gave the stories the space, they entered it. It’s both awesome and humbling to find the words in my mind become characters on a page and create their lives.”

Kiki resides in the Midwest with her incredibly handsome and talented, singer/songwriter husband and two children. When she is not writing, she is spending time with her family, reading, baking or knitting.
