Blake Cortland is a vampire and loves it. The only drawback is the eternally lonely heart that he deals with everyday since he lost his love over two hundred years ago. Could he ever give his heart again, only to have it broken when human death took that love away?
Holly Winthrop is wanted for the murder of her father and is on the run. The real killer wants her dead. When she crashes her car near the house of a doctor, she isnâ€™t sure if that is a great thing when he announces that he was a vampire. He will help her clear her name and then make her forget that he is a vampire, but does she want to forget her own superhero with fangs?
Since she was on a roll, she was going for all of it. "Well, now that you mention it. How did you get me out of the car? Sometimes you seem to move so fast and have so much strength, you really do seem like a vampire with the strength of ten men."
His deep voice came out in a loud chuckle. "I thought it was twenty men."
Argh! He was laughing at her. Now that was rude. He had told her to ask, and now he was amused. She couldnâ€™t stand it. "Whatever, Blake. Just answer something, please."
"If I were a vampire, I wouldnâ€™t need the bedrooms to sleep in. All of them have way too much light."
Even with her frustration, Holly couldnâ€™t help laughing. "Be serious, Blake. Youâ€™re not a vampire."
His gaze locked on hers, making her nervous. He looked too danged serious. Was he setting her up for a bad joke? "Well, youâ€™re not."
He brushed his finger across his chin. "Are you sure?"
Was he crazy? Her heart thumped in her temples. Was he trying to scare her? Why was he acting this way? Was their hidden household secret that he was psychotic?
"Why are you becoming afraid?"
"The way youâ€™re looking at me is making me nervous. I was expecting you to jump all over me and say your affairs are none of my business and maybe I should be on my way."
"Iâ€™m not going to say that. How should I be looking at you while you charge me with being a vampire?"
"Come on Blake. Stop fooling around. That was just a wild example of your behavior."
He didnâ€™t answer right away. Why couldnâ€™t he be serious? She had been. Dang it! Why did he have to be so vague? Yeah, right. A vampire. If he thought she was so easily fooled, he had to think again.
If anything made her mad, it was word games and not getting a straight answer.
"Anger doesnâ€™t become you." His voice was low but reprimanding. "It spoils your lovely face. Now that I know all your concerns, or at least I think I do, ask me one question at a time. Ask what you feel you must know and Iâ€™ll do my best to answer it."
Finally, he sounded serious. But would he turn it around again to a farce? "Iâ€™ve already done that. Youâ€™re just making fun of me, and I donâ€™t like it."
"One at a time," he said. "I promise to give a sober answer to every question. Does that suit you?"
She signed. It did and already she could relax a little. "Yes. I never did like being laughed at."
"I donâ€™t either."
Well, he said to ask them one at a time. She certainly would. "Where do you go during the day?"
"To my resting place below ground."
Holly frowned. He was playing with her again, but she wasnâ€™t going to stop now. "Why does your help call you Master?"
"Because they are my entranced servants."
She scrunched her nose. "Whatâ€™s that?" She didnâ€™t even know what that meant, even if he was playing games.
"They are hypnotized to do my will."
He sounded so serious. How could he say this with a straight face? He had to be the ultimate actor. "How can you do that?
"Because I am a vampire."
A vampire. Well, she had tossed out the accusation for a bad comparison and he had every right to throw it back in her face, but she didnâ€™t like this game. He was much too serious. He couldnâ€™t be a vampire because there werenâ€™t any such creatures. What did he hope to gain by these ridiculous answers? "I thought you said that youâ€™d give me truthful answers."

"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
