Amira Press Halloween Short
By Sabrina Luna
Coming October 3rd in Ebook Format

Was it possible a vampire could dream? Alexander Rostov did. Vivid, lucid dreams would fill his daytime slumber. Yet, these were more than mere dreams. They were visions of the
past . . . his past. Both the good and the bad of his immortal existence would blend together in an endless stream, flowing through his mind’s eye.

Alexander was settling down to bed, just before dawn. He knew he would dream of her again and sensed the bittersweet pang of loneliness.

Outside the hotel window, he could still hear music drifting up from Bourbon Street, the giggles and laughter of the last few partiers as they stumbled off to bed before the sun rose. For every soul gathered in New Orleans, the week of Halloween was one big party. It was a time to celebrate—tourists, locals, the living, and undead. Everyone.

The heady atmosphere had drawn him to the Crescent City. Yet, uncertainty tugged at his heart like a dark phantom. Where was she? China? England? Perhaps, she had returned to her homeland, Russia. But it was now the twenty-first century. The world had changed. Yet, despite immortality, his unyielding desire for her remained unchanged.

Shifting, Alexander glided a hand down to caress his cock beneath the bedsheets. The veil to the spirit world was thin, but so, too, was the sheer barrier between love and lust.

Ah, my beloved Natasha . . .

As her name drifted through his mind, he closed his eyes and slipped into the realm of dreams.

New cover art for Blood of the Dark Moon!

Check it out! :D

Love & Magic,

Blurb: When Jacqueline Hamilton is attacked by a wolf while investigating a magazine article on werewolves in Heather Grove, it’s up to pack guardian Ray McShaw to keep her safe.

However, as the full moon approaches, Ray has two problems—one, to keep from falling in love with Jac and, two, to uncover the identity of the rogue wolf bent on killing her.

Sometimes being a pack guardian really bites!

Excerpt from FULL MOON FEVER
By Sabrina Luna
Coming in October 2008
At Whiskey Creek Press Torrid
In Tradesize Paperback & Ebook formats

“You feel so wonderful.” His voice rumbled in her ear sending a wave of desire coursing through her. The warmth of his naked body over hers spiked the pleasurable sensations of their conjoined bodies. “I never thought—

Jac silenced him with a kiss, pressing her lips against his with all the fierce passion that simmered inside her. He tasted of cinnamon and primal lust as she slipped her tongue between his lips. In the back of her mind, she wondered where he’d been all her life. Her heart panged at the thought of all the lonely nights she’d been through, but now, with her body wrapped around his, she knew he was worth waiting for.

He pulled his lips from hers, trailing kisses down the column of her throat. Jac let out a low moan as the heat of his mouth stirred emotions buried deep inside her. Her sex was slick with moisture and ached with longing as he gently rocked his body against her. The pleasure of his cock inside her increased the erotic sensations. It racked her body with such passion, it was unbelievable. Then, she was falling, falling into pitch darkness. She let out a shout, crashing down onto the cold ground.

Jac sat up, naked and cold in a dark, wooded glade. Her heart pounding wildly in her chest as she glanced around, terrified. Where was he? Before she could call out, she saw a pair of glowing, wild eyes peering through the dark foliage. A low snarl echoed around her. Run! Scrambling to her feet, Jac began to run through the trees, through the thick grove of bushes. The creature was hot on her trail. She could hear its heavy panting and the snapping of twigs and the swish of brush as it drew closer and closer.

Her legs went rubbery. She lost her footing and fell, face first, onto the hard, cold ground. Jac rolled onto her back, just in time to see a black, furry creature leap into the air. Air whooshed from her lungs as the creature landed on top of her, its large, lupus-like face only inches from hers.

Jac was scared out of her wits. A scream ripped from her throat. She flailed her arms, attempting to fight. Get off me!

“Get off me!” Jac shouted, flinging the covers onto the floor. Her heart was racing as she sat up, looking around. Where was she? It took a moment to get her bearings. The room slowly came into focus. She was in bed, in a hotel room…alone.

There was no dark woods, no hideous wolf-creature attacking her. It was all a dream.

“More like a nightmare,” she muttered, retrieving the bedcover and wrapping herself in the warm, comforting material. “Damn,” Jac cursed under her breath, curling up in the bed once again. Listening to her heart return to a normal pace, the nightmare gradually dissipated as she began to focus on the day ahead.

“Time to get busy,” she sighed, tossing the cover aside and rising from the bed. A manila folder lay beside her laptop bag. Jac flipped it open, scanning its contents. Her editor’s contact had provided nothing more than a few transcriptions of town hall council meetings, a genealogical family tree and a clipping from the local newspaper.

She scanned over the scrap of paper. It was a sighting of a half-man, half-wolf spotted in town on Halloween. “A werewolf on Halloween, huh?” Jac shook her head, slipping the news clipping back into the assignment folder. “I still think it’s all a big farce,” she grumbled, but decided to get down to business—but only after a shower and a cup of coffee. These were the two things she needed every morning to jumpstart her brain.

Look for FULL MOON FEVER, coming soon!

*Note from Sabrina Luna: This was recently forwarded to me in an email. It made me heartsick...and made me think. I am a voter, yet there are still women out there who don't exercise their right to vote. I sincerely hope this will change their minds!


This is the story of our Grandmothers and Great-grandmothers; they lived only 90 years ago.

Remember, it was not until 1920 that women were granted the right to go to the polls and vote.

The women were wives and mothers and unprepared for the fury that would be unleashed on them. Initially they were jailed for picketing the White House, carrying signs asking for the vote.

By the end of the night, they were fighting for their lives.

Forty prison guards wielding clubs and with their warden's blessing went on a rampage against the 33 women accused of 'obstructing sidewalk traffic.'

Lucy Burns

They beat Lucy Burns, chained her hands to the cell bars above her head and left her hanging for the night, bleeding and gasping for air.

Dora Lewis

They hurled Dora Lewis into a dark cell, smashed her head against an iron bed and knocked her out cold. Her cellmate, Alice Cosu, thought Lewis was dead and suffered a heart attack. Additional affidavits describe the guards grabbing, dragging, beating, choking, slamming, pinching, twisting and kicking the women.

Thus unfolded the 'Night of Terror' on Nov. 15, 1917, when the warden at the Occoquan Workhouse in Virginia ordered his guards to 'teach a lesson' to the suffragists imprisoned there because they dared to picket Woodrow Wilson's White House for the right to vote.

For weeks, the women's only water came from an open pail. Their
food--all of it colorless slop--was infested with worms.

Alice Paul

When one of the leaders, Alice Paul, embarked on a hunger strike, they tied her to a chair, forced a tube down her throat and poured liquid into her until she vomited. She was tortured like this for weeks until word was smuggled out to the press.


Some women won't vote this year because-why, exactly? We have carpool duties? We have to get to work? Our vote doesn't matter? It's raining?

Recently I went to a sparsely attended screening of HBO's movie 'Iron Jawed Angels..' It is a graphic depiction of the battle these women waged so that I could pull the curtain at the polling booth and have my voice heard. I am ashamed to say I needed the reminder.

All these years later, voter registration is still my passion. But the actual act of voting had become less personal for me, more rote. Frankly, voting often felt more like an obligation than a privilege. Sometimes it was inconvenient.

My friend Wendy, who is my age and studied women's history, saw the HBO movie, too. When she stopped by my desk to talk about it, she looked angry. She was--with herself. 'One thought kept coming back to me as I watched that movie,' she said.
'What would those women think of the way I use, or don't use, my right to vote? All of us take it for granted now, not just younger women, but those of us who did seek to learn.' The right to vote, she said, had become valuable to her 'all over again.'

HBO has released the movie on video and DVD . I wish all history, social studies and government teachers would include the movie in their curriculum I want it shown on Bunco night, too, and anywhere else women gather. I realize this isn't our usual idea of socializing, but we are not voting in the numbers that we should be, and I think a little shock therapy is in order.

It is jarring to watch Woodrow Wilson and his cronies try to persuade a psychiatrist to declare Alice Paul insane so that she could be permanently institutionalized. And it is inspiring to watch the doctor refuse. Alice Paul was strong, he said, and brave. That didn't make her crazy.

The doctor admonished the men: 'Courage in women is often mistaken for insanity.'

Please, if you are so inclined, pass this on to all the women you know.

We need to get out and vote and use this right that was fought so hard for by these very courageous women. Whether you vote democratic, republican or independent party
- remember to vote.

History is being made.
