A Whyborne & Griffin short story.
Griffin Flaherty wants nothing more than to create a perfect Valentine’s Day for his lover, Dr. Percival Endicott Whyborne. Dinner at a fancy restaurant, an evening at the theater, and a romantic interlude at home should do the trick.
But a new client with an urgent case puts Griffin’s plans in jeopardy. A magic talisman has been stolen, and if it isn’t returned by sundown, disaster will befall not only on the thief but the innocents around him.
Can Whyborne and Griffin track down and return the amulet by nightfall, or will dinner reservations become the least of their worries?
Note: This story takes place between the events of Widdershins and Threshold, and is narrated from Griffin’s point of view.

About the Author
Jordan L. Hawk grew up in the wilds of North Carolina, where she was raised on stories of haints and mountain magic by her bootlegging granny. After using a silver knife in the light of a full moon to summon her true love, she turned her talents to spinning tales. She weaves together couples who need to fall in love, then throws in some evil sorcerers and undead just to make sure they want it bad enough. In Jordan’s world, love might conquer all, but it just as easily could end up in the grave.

This short story, set between Widdershins and Threshold, finds Griffin and Whyborne's plans for Valentine's Day derailed by an investigation. I love the fact that this story, unlike all the others, is told from Griffin's point of view. And I totally want to see more of Miss Lester. Recommended to all fans of the series. -- lyradora
