The Anniversary is one of the stories in The Crimson Z, an anthology of the paranormal from Black Velvet Seductions.
Life is complicated…
Evelyn and Peter are very much in love when they are wrenched apart on their anniversary. The separation appears permanent and irreversible.
As Evelyn’s life tumbles into bleak, bottomless darkness James steps in to wipe away the tears and give her another chance at happiness. When Evelyn learns that a mystical piece of jewelry given to her by her husband will allow them one evening together each year…on the anniversary of their separation…she is torn.
She adores James but she needs Peter…even if she can only see him once a year. Can she say good-bye to Peter while there’s still a chance they can be together?
