Johnny has spent thirty-two years trying to do what’s expected of him. When he finds himself divorced, overweight, living with his parents again, and losing the job he’s had since leaving school, it’s the wake-up call he needs to start taking charge of his life. It's time to do what he wants -- if only he can figure out just what that is.
Choosing to go looking for his brother Joey, who he hasn't seen or spoken to for eight years, he follows a postmark on a Christmas card to the seaside town of Anwell-by-Sea. Joey isn't that difficult to find and comes complete with boyfriend Dave, Dave's Uncle Ed, and a rather large and very bad tempered arsehole called Charlie.
Johnny is happy to find Joey and enjoys meeting Dave and Uncle Ed; but he's pretty glad to see the back of Charlie. Despite Charlie being an unpleasant git, Johnny can't wait to get back to Anwell-by-Sea with his kids for an Easter break, and maybe he can make some progress on his to-do list by then, too.

As the Valentine's window display competition approaches, Trent hires Jonathan to pretty up his optical shop. Jonathan is a student from the local Arts and Design College, and he's not shy about showing the world he's gay. Trent hates to admit it, but guys like that make him uncomfortable. Clearly, Jonathan doesn't care what other people think. He's also damn good at calling a stranger's bluff. Jonathan can tell that Trent is just like his candy-covered berries: dark chocolate on the outside, fruity on the inside. But will he discover Trent's kinks in time for Valentine's Day?

In this day of modern health and sanitation, few consider vampires more than a charming myth, a sexy little fantasy for when we are home and safe, and the street lamps and house lights keep away the night. But what happens when the lights fail, and old horrors rise from the grave to show they are no myth?
Deirdre has been a vampire since the 1600s, has seen a lot of history and knows quite a bit about her own species as well. She knows that there are many more types of vampires than the ones seen in movies and on TV. The modern version of the vampire is not an accurate one, and she also knows that being a vampire herself doesn't keep her safe from her own kind. A whisper in a graveyard, a shuffling footstep outside the door, the low, steady droning moan of the mindless undead are all warnings. For centuries she has managed to stay safe, but when she chances to meet a vampire of her own century, she is unaware that a monster is on his trail.
And now that monster is seeking her as well…
