Sometimes the past really bites.

Niccolo, a vampire-turned-private detective, is living peacefully in New York with his lover, Felix—until, on the eve of a certain holiday, a late-night visitor from his past comes calling…

Sanguineous is a 5,000-word paranormal horror/gay romance short story in celebration of Halloween.

“Ignoring me so easily? And the night before Halloween, too—tut tut.”

“Show yourself!” Niccolo shot up from his chair, the harsh squeal of the wheels underscoring his alarm. He could protect himself well enough, but Felix—

“Perhaps I will show myself, if only you would agree to do the same…oh, very well.” The other vampire materialized with no further fanfare. Then again, it was not as though he needed it.

Shock had Niccolo’s body prickling. He was suddenly cold. His mouth felt clumsy, his words were nowhere near as authoritative as he would have liked. “What do you want?”

“My, what a foolish question. I did say I would be back to fetch you, did I not?”

Author Bio:
Diana is a New Zealand M/M romance author currently residing in New York. However, she has also lived and worked for several years in Japan and several months in Thailand.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
