since. His life of a recluse consists of long nights awake and fishing.
Until Kat comes along. She changes him in ways he can't explain. And suddenly he
is her partner in sin, luring victims to sleep with them so she may feed. For them, forever is quite literal, but happily ever after is very much in
question. Spell Of Love: Flame In The Rain by Alyssa Brooks is available at Loose Id.

and resource management with their inspiring book Trash Talk. They explain that
although the immense environmental problems our world faces can be overwhelming,
each and every one of us can do something to help our world - starting right
where we are, right now. Trash Talk is not a quick fix solution - it is about
changing consumer's mind-sets by providing ideas that inspire participation from
the ground level. It shows the direct effect of better waste and resource
management both for the environment and the wallet. Not everyone can afford to
donate cash or time to a cause but by implementing the concept of Trash Talk,
the average person can make small alterations in their lives that affect
positive changes for the Earth. Visit their website: http://www.sunshinecable.com/~drumit
