What happens when a lonely vampire seeks companionship in the twenty-first century?
Bogdan Tomescu has had a long and successful career writing vampire stories from a uniquely personal perspective. Yet happiness eludes him, having lost his beloved wife Magda to a tragic sunshine incident many decades ago. His friend Louie, a jazz musician werewolf, suggests he try hemophilia.com. On the surface, it’s a fantasy role-playing site for people to act out their imaginary un-lives as vampires. Its true purpose is to allow the undead to meet right under the noses of the unsuspecting living. Bogdan decides to take the plunge, and soon finds the perfect mate – a four-hundred-year-old Romanian countess. Is she too good to be true?
Love at Stake, a short story by Vaughn Treude, to be available on Amazon by Halloween 2017.
