Are you ever too old to find not just yourself but the woman of your dreams?
Sometimes you have to lose it all to find everything…
Becoming a grandfather at the age of 60 and divorced with one grown up son, George has only his retirement to look forward to. Carefully scrimping and saving for his future life of expectant ease, he just got the shock of his life: he is let go from his employment.
With his retirement in serious jeopardy, George is thrown into a panicked tailspin. Facing a job market heavily skewed towards youth, he finds out first hand exactly what aging means in this country today.

In the fight for his own financial survival, George is forced to dig deep and find out exactly what he is made of. And then he meets Mimi. It is in the act of being forced down a path that he did not choose that George finds not just himself but the woman that has been missing from his life, all along.
Had he stayed true to the imagined life that he was sure he always wanted, then true love and true happiness would have passed him right by…

Publication Date: December 2, 2013
Note: Set in the same alternate history universe, the stories in the Carpathia Timeline stand alone, although some characters appear in both books.
Romania, 1882: After spending years trying to locate and destroy Prince Radu Zeklos, the vampire that killed his fiancé, Daniel Jameson finds a solution to his problem when the King of Romania decides to host an international race of “self-propelled ground machines” through the Carpathian Mountains.
Four nations — Germany, England, France and the United States — are set to take part in the race, and Jameson finds allies in Major William “Stump” O’Brien, the American team’s military liaison, and Olivia Lowenby, the daughter of the man responsible for building the English vehicle and a woman who also desires revenge against the vampire for the death of her brother.
Initially opposed to the race because if successful it will destroy the “traditional way of life” for Romania’s vampires and werewolves, Prince Zeklos has changed his mind. He too seizes the contest as an opportunity to achieve something he has spent years dreaming of: the creation of a new nation of the undead, Carpathia.
With airships battling in the skies and humans fighting undead creatures on the ground, “Carpathia” is filled with action and plot twists as Jameson and Zeklos maneuver to achieve their very different goals.
This edition contains Bonus Features including Fun Facts and sample chapters from “The Devil’s Harvest,” the second book in the Carpathia Timeline.

An outburst of hostilities in X thrusts Violet into the young Vampire’s arms. And, much to her dismay, she realizes she may have accidentally bewitched him with a love charm. Are the emotions that the Vampire feels true passion or just a slip of the wand?
