CONTENTS

"Jaded" {reincarnation romance} by Barbara Raffin (Dame Jade): With the help of doomed, eerily familiar lovers from days gone by, Hannah Calder and Jake Griffin learn that scars don't need to wall a person off from life and that it takes more than wealth to create happiness. This time around, they ignore the nay saying, and the rich man and the waitress take a leap of faith beyond their fears and prove that love can overcome all.

"Sex with the Man in the Moon" {romantic suspense} by Christine DeSmet (Dame Moonstone): The night is cold and his "family jewels" are hot. During a white-out on Christmas Eve in the remote wilderness of northern Wisconsin, young widow Claire Mickelson finds bloodied, frozen Jack Eberhardt dumped in a snow bank near her cabin. Unfortunately she's taken in what appears to be a notorious, murderous jewel thief. And while he thaws out, he asks her to thaw a little toward him. And his jewels.

"The Ruby Kiss" {contemporary vampire romance} by Jaye Roycraft (Dame Ruby): Radio intern Alena Grace would rather spend Halloween with friends, but she has no choice but to participate in the station's annual Halloween scavenger hunt. Even more dismaying is being partnered with "the spook," late night DJ Ray McClay, who's given her chills since her first day on the job with his pale skin, blond hair, and yellow-green eyes. Designated as the "Vampire Team", Alena and Ray battle each other and the elements to be the first to locate all the items on their list of treasure, including the mysterious Ruby Kiss.

"The Amethyst Angel" {traditional romance} by Karen Wiesner (Dame Amethyst): Elena Lopez's father has decided to playmatchmaker with his long-time friend and neighbor, Marta Delgado, when Marta's nephew comes to town. Elena has a secret, though: She's always loved Marta's own son Pablo. An amethyst angel belonging to a dying boy reminds Elena that spending her life waiting for something to happen isn't living and that love must be shared. Can she take the risk of telling Pablo her feelings even if he doesn't share her love?

"Peridot Moon" {futuristic romance} by Julie Skerven (Dame Peridot): Tabitha King travels to Mine #12 in search of one of her least reliable bounty hunters. Laurent Fox hasn't checked in for three days. Now she's determined to retrieve him and bounce him from the corporation. However, when she arrives she discovers that Laurent is injured and just barely holding off poachers. When they find a lode of pure peridot in an old, played-out shaft things get hotter. Can Tabitha trust him? Will Laurent see her as something other than the stiff beaurocrat he remembers? Will they find love under the Peridot Moon?

"Diamond Magee" {over-the-hill romance} by Sherry Derr-Wille (Dame Diamond): Diamond Magee, Di to her friends, has returned to Minter after 30 years.

She haunts his sleep, becoming more vivid with each dream. Driven to meet her in person, he tracks her down only to discover she's hospitalized in a deep coma, the victim of an apparent mugging. Convinced the attack was no random act of violence, Will must hunt down her assailant before he can strike again.
