A vignette featuring Daegan, Anwyn and Gideon of Vampire Mistress and Vampire Trinity of the Vampire Queen Series.

Background: In Bound by the Vampire Queen, it was mentioned that Gideon and Daegan had a friendly bet in play. When Lyssa asked Anwyn to give her the details, Anwyn replied: “Gideon thinks you’ll have to beat Lord Belizar to a bloody pulp to get him to listen to reason. Daegan thinks you’ll have to stake him and start from scratch. If Gideon wins”—she glanced at Daegan, confirming he was fine revealing the nature of the agreement—“he wants Daegan to set aside his Master role for one night. Gideon wants to . . . take Daegan.”

Long and short, Gideon won the bet (small spoiler for those who haven’t read BbtVQ, yes, but nothing big – you know we couldn’t kill off grumpy Lord Belizar), so this vignette is the long-awaited fulfillment of those terms.

A vignette featuring Lyssa and Jacob and friends, characters from the Vampire Queen Series.There is also a special guest appearance by Dante and Alexis, characters from the Daughters of Arianne Series. A Mermaid’s Ransom is their book (Book III of the Daughters of Arianne Series).

Background: In 2011, I did a brief vignette about Jacob and Lyssa going to the mall at Christmastime. It was so well received, I decided to return to Lyssa’s Atlanta home the following year and bring you all with me, to share their very special Christmas party with family and friends…

A vignette featuring Daegan and Gideon of Vampire Mistress and Vampire Trinity from the Vampire Queen Series.

Background: Near the end of Vampire Trinity, Anwyn set three conditions on Gideon’s service to her and Daegan. One of them was that he prove he’d accepted Daegan as his Master, as much as he’d accepted Anwyn as his Mistress. To do this, Gideon had to feed the male vampire and let Daegan take him to his bed, without Anwyn having to be present. This vignette focuses on how Gideon went about meeting that condition.

A vignette featuring Jacob and Lyssa of Vampire Queen’s Servant, Mark of the Vampire Queen and Bound by the Vampire Queen from the Vampire Queen Series.

Background: In thinking about what a Christmas mall trip would be like with Lyssa, my thousand-year-old vampire queen, and her servant, Jacob, I decided to tag along on an actual trip and see if I could hear a few snippets of conversation. They of course decided to bring their son Kane with them, because what could be more fun than shopping with a vampire toddler?

While this story is barely more than a few pages, much shorter than what has become my normal length for vignettes, it kicked off two follow-up Christmas vignettes. The very next year, I wrote one where Lyssa hosted a Christmas party for a variety of the Vampire Queen Series characters (You’re All Invited). And a few years later, an incident that occurred in this very short vignette inspired another Christmas novella about Lyssa’s son as a grown-up (A Season of Giving). As a result, I felt it deserved a spot in the compilation.

A vignette featuring Mason and Jessica of Beloved Vampire from the Vampire Queen Series.

Background: Thanks to Lord Mason's love, Jessica overcame unspeakable trauma to remain a part of the vampire world and his servant. Mason is protective, though, and refuses to let her travel with him when he's handling Council business in the highly political and sexual vampire world. Jess knows she can handle it and be the kind of servant he needs. To prove it to him, she comes up with a plan. She's determined to make him take off the gloves and treat her as a full servant at last. But forcing her Master's hand will have consequences--ones equally desirable AND terrifying.

These characters are introduced in the first book of the Vampire Queen Series, Vampire Queen's Servant, and reappear throughout the series.

Background: This vignette is a prequel to Lyssa and Jacob’s first book, Vampire Queen's Servant. In this story, Lyssa’s servant is still Thomas, the celibate monk who later trains Jacob to take his place. Despite the carnal nature of vampires, Lyssa honored Thomas’s celibacy vow, with one notable exception. He started his service as a second mark, but when he agreed to forever bind himself to her as her third marked servant, she required a loyalty test. He had to give her his body for one night only. This story is about that night.
