Title: Midnight Blue 
Author: Ric Wasley
Publisher: Wild Child Publishing .
Length: novel Sub-Genres: Light Romance, Paranormal

 From the author that brought you Shadow of Innocence, Acid Test, and The Scrimshaw comes Midnight Blue. Michael, a young man known as "Blue Eyes," falls hopelessly in love with a girl with jet black hair, green eyes, pale skin, and blood red lips. But the girl is not the angel she appears.

 She is, in fact, a vampire.

 He swears he would give his life to be with her forever, but, apparently, he has never heard the old adage, "Be careful what you wish for." The beautiful vampire grants his request and sets him on a path that brings them head to head with an evil as old as the dawn of the civilized world.

Together, they must battle this evil or be destroyed themselves.

 Who will win?

 A vampire tale like you've never read, Midnight Blue takes you on a rollercoaster ride full of thrills, laughs, heart ache, and triumph. 

 And so the world continued to turn, humans continued to age and change, while I remained in many ways static. I continued on–a perpetual teenager, drifting through the sex, drugs and rock & roll that was California in the late seventies. No problem. Fortunately I was very fond of sex, drugs and rock & roll, and my job and lifestyle insured I was well supplied with all three.
Then one night my complacent, though pleasant, life was interrupted.
Sitting in one of my favorite clubs on Green Street, sipping Jack Daniels, and checking out a new band, I found myself in the mood for a late night snack. Examining the merchandise on display in the fern decorated bar, ironically–at least for me–known locally as the ‘meat rack’, a fine crop of cute little cows and chickens had lined themselves up for my inspection.
 One of the many benefits of wearing sunglasses most of the time was that the girls couldn’t see my eyes as I looked them over, deciding which I would approach hoping for a blood-type match which might lead to a late ‘date’. I marked several girls as likely prospects, and moved to where they stood clustered on the edge of the club’s crowded dance floor.
That’s when I saw Amber.
 Dancing with her back towards me, swaying to the heavily thumping beat, the shifting lights playing across her hair, but I could still recognize her strawberry-blond curls.
 I pushed out onto the dance floor and spun her around. “Amber–it’s me!”
But it wasn’t her. Just a girl with strawberry-blond hair. I mumbled an apology and backed away. Moving towards the club door, all notions of ‘late night snacks’ forgotten, there was only room for one thought in my head–I had to find Amber.
 “Bad idea Blue-Eyes.”
 I spun around, confused for a moment…Raven?
Her dark hair cropped shorter and done up in a trendy little flip, she wore a cream-colored blouse with form-fitting dark purple bellbottoms. Her platform shoes brought her hypnotic eyes level with my chin as she glided over to me.
 “Raven.” God, she was beautiful. I could smell her hair and even her skin. “What are you doing here?”
 “Trying to keep you from making a terrible mistake.” She smiled, took my hand and led me to a small table in the corner.
“Have you been listening to my thoughts?”
 “What do you think?”
 I ignored her question. “Why are you here? Is this a coincidence or have you been watching me?” She shrugged.
 “But why? What do you care? And why don’t you want me to be with Amber?” “You wound me Blue-Eyes,” she said, that impish little gleam in her eye.
“You know we have that special bond. I don’t want to see you do something that would be a very bad idea for you and for her….” The eyes lost their twinkle.
“And for others as well.”
