Vincent and John are coming to dinner. Not that I’m worried or anything, but Vince is quite the wine connoisseur, and can afford the best. Also he cooks and bakes a mean dessert. John is more the BBQ kind of guy. And, well, there’s one more little problem–Vincent is a vampire.
I don’t really wish to become Vincent’s dessert. Not that he’d take advantage of his dinner host. He’s the ultimate gentleman, and gay, so he’d prefer a bite of the male persuasion. He’d prefer John, but John has no clue his lover drinks blood. Really!? He’s been with Vincent, for how long now?
Okay, back to dinner. What to serve?
I’m from the Central Valley (California). My family is still there, and lives close to Lodi, an award winning wine valley that produces some of the finest Zinfandel varieties. A bottle of Lodi vintage should pacify the wine beast.
I’m going to keep the menu simple, and with John in mind. He’s a basic kind of guy, not fancy but likes good quality without fuss. Hah, look at his gorgeous partner…
Wine: Klinker Brick Old Ghost Zinfandel – comes from 100 year old vines
Steak filets – cooked medium rare (some blood to satisfy the craving)
Russet baked potatoes served with sour cream, chives and butter
Fresh salad with my own vinaigrette dressing
Fresh fruit and whipped cream spiked with a bit of Amaretto
I’m happy to announce that book 2 of the Orbus Arcana series is now available at Amazon:
A dangerous secret, a vampire, plus one sexy cop is a recipe for trouble.
JOHN REEDER has accepted his love for VINCENT KAMATEROS, but he doesn’t know his lover is a vampire. When a killer targets Vince, John has to deal with uncovered secrets that blow his life apart.
Will Vince reveal his true nature to protect the cop who has come to mean more than his own life? In doing so, he might ruin his only chance for a ‘happy ever after’ with John.
