This short story, The Virgin Witch and The Vampire King, was so popular that it launched an entire series. Beth, the virgin witch, has hidden all her life, afraid to unleash her powers and draw attention to herself. Her parents are dead, even though her father still has a tendency to annoy her. Beth’s only friend and confidant, Nora, goes missing. But no one cares or will even help her. A week before Halloween, Edward, the Vampire King, discovers a prophecy that states he must find his mate and join their souls...if he even has one. Edward must now find his missing secretary, Nora, and his intended mate. War threatens to break out between all races. Only the marriage of Beth and Edward can end the threat. Will Edward and Beth be able to rescue their friend and fulfill their destiny before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve?
Beth had heard her father’s warning, but didn’t understand his words. Scooting across the seat of the limo away from him, she concentrated on her injury, intent on healing it. She’d always had a high threshold for pain, but even this injury was pushing her past her pain threshold tolerance.
“Don’t, Beth. I’ll heal you. You need to save your strength for tonight.” Edward gently took her arm wrapping his arm around her waist and pulling her to him. “They’re lucky they’re dead or I’d rip them apart for this.” He opened his wrist with his teeth and dropped blood into her open wound.
“Why are you doing this? You owe me nothing. What do you mean, ‘I’ll need my strength for later?’” She ground her teeth together, but a small cry slipped out as the bone snapped back together and her wound sealed.
Edward looked at the driver and nodded before the window that separated them from the driver was raised. “Did your father ever mention the ancient writings? There’s one story that pertains to you and me. It was written long ago, that a vampire king would mate with a witch with equal powers. Their union will end all rifts between the races. But I’m afraid it also says that once they met, they must seal their bond on All Hallows Eve, before midnight on her birthday.”
