Ethan Travis had loved many times in his existence. Who could really love a vampire? He would love againâ€¦as a human, unless he could find that one ageless love that could forget that Ethan existed in human flesh only in the dark of the night.
Kristen Stanton wanted to make a big discovery. That was her ultimate goal in life and that was why she worked in her fatherâ€™s laboratories, studying human blood. She had no desire to be stuck on nights with a man who didnâ€™t want her around as his assistant and held a record of some kind for eccentric.
Several hours later, Ethan stood beside Kristen at her workstation. Even his nearness made her confused. Her fingers worked nimbly on the computer keyboard while he explained some of his notes and she typed them in. She hadn't asked him anything about the earlier incidents of drinking or kissing, simply because she didn't know how to bring up either subject. Besides, he would explain it away, and leave her more confused.
He laid his journal beside her, and she flung her own journal out of the way across the counter. It tipped an ultra violet light that she had over her African violet. The spindly lamp toppled in his direction, and fell against his hand. He jerked his hand back and then his face contorted in silent anguish.
"I'm sorry. Are you burned? Are... ?â€ Before she could ask anything else, he fled toward the bathroom facilities. She sat the UV-light upright and cautiously put her hand near it and then against it. Slight warmth emanated from it, but it should not have burned anyone.
She took off after him. "Iâ€™m really sorry. I donâ€™t know how you could be hurt. What can I do? Can I helpâ€”?â€ He slammed the bathroom door in her face. How could he be burned? She stood outside staring at the door for endless seconds. Well, she had to know. Ready or not here she comes. She shoved the door open and followed him in. "I'm sorry Ethan. How bad is it?â€
"Kristen! Get out of here!â€ he screamed. His anger was understandable, but she placed herself only feet from him. He still grimaced in agony, while holding his injured hand.
"I just want to help.â€ If he was burnt, he needed help and she would not oblige his pained tantrum. If he could be stubborn, she could too. She reached for his hand and pulled it toward her. Blisters! The UV light had caused blisters, but how? It wasn't logical. She had placed her own hand on the light and had felt nothing.
She had expected him to pull away, but he didn't. His face became expressionless, as if he was studying her. The back of his hand seemed to take on a life of its own. First the blisters heaped high with watery bubbles. These heaved and waved upon the back of his hand like a creature running under the skin and then they flattened by themselves. Next, they seemed to dry out, leaving a thin brown scab. Finally, the dry scab disappeared and his flesh cleared, like a Biblical leper cleansed by a miracle.
It scared the crap out of her and she dropped his hand. "Iiieee!â€ His uninjured hand moved faster than she could see and caught her upper arm. Terror gripped her. She had to get out of here, but he held her much too tightly.
"What do you see?â€ His voice was edged with bitterness. Horrified, like a rabbit caught in a spotlight, she couldn't stop staring at his hand.
She straightened her face as much as possible, but the quiver of her lips would give away inner turmoil. "I don't know what you mean?â€ It was a lie, but she had to deny this craziness or be crazy.
"If you don't know what I mean, why are you afraid of what you see before you? Or should I say, of what you don't see anymore?â€ He clasped both her arms this time. His face reddened. His eyes glowed. The blues of his eyes changed color and looked like red neon lights.

"SINISTER KNIGHT is a romantic suspense book with a bit of the paranormal. I am considering the dreams Kara had about the castle on Mario's island as being the paranormal part of the story. It is only a thread throughout the plot, but it adds to the storyline. The characters of Kara and Mario are strong enough to carry the story almost by themselves. The other characters are secondary and used only as needed in the plot.â€ -- Hattie Boyd, Scribes World
Sinister Knight: This was a very entertaining story with a very good plot line with well-developed characters. The suspense mounts until the last page - Brenda Gill
To Sail Through Time: ***** stars This book is an enjoyable read. I would recommend it for all lovers of romance. -- Sandy Cummins
To Sail Through Time, 4.5 stars out of 5. I can highly recommend this book as a 4.5 stars out of 5. Well written, well paced and thoroughly enjoyable to read. I eagerly look forward to more novels by this particular author, especially if she continues in this genre.--REVIEWED BY: Katherine Schlem
TO SAIL THROUGH TIME was a fun read, full of adventure, bits of history and romance all in one. I thought the author did a good job portraying the conflicts between a man from the 1800â€™s and an independent woman from the 1990â€™s. While this romance had the predictable fairy-tale ending, the plot had sufficient twists and turns to make the ride worthwhile. I got quite a laugh at some of the situations Bethany got herself into, and I thoroughly enjoyed the discussions she and Joshua had over human rights and fair treatment of prisoners. A good book to pick up for a fantasy trip of your own. -- ***1/2 Recommended Aimee McLeod
Eternity's Many Loves - I enjoyed reading this story, stayed up till the wee hours of the night to finish it. I can only hope [hint] that Ms. Evans has plans to write stories for Ethan's vampire friend's Demetri Lupino, and Blake. Curious to know what happens with them! I highly recommend reading, "ETERNITY'S MANY LOVES" 5 Stars, --Charlene Smith, Simegen
