Six Paragraphs From "Immortal Relations Coming Out" (Third in the Immortal Relations Series)

This snippet is from page 69 of my third in the series, “Immortal Relations Coming Out.” The scene is the wedding of the vampire daughter of Magdalena and Gary whose name is Eviana to the human, Victor (soon to be her husband):
We boarded several limousines which whisked us over to where the marriage ceremony would be held and there we saw many of our old friends who had been there the day Magdalena and I had wed at the same location. Eviana had on the same dress Magdalena had worn the day she and I were married. It had a few minor alterations since Eviana was not quite as tall but had an ample bust and wanted the neckline plunging to show off one of her best features. Aside from these modifications, and the dazzling white color, it had the same haut-couture cut as the light blue, lacy, scalloped, and layered, shape-hugging dress I’d seen Magdalena in the first time I’d met her.

I guess I’d been so overwhelmed by the surprise my friends had prepared in my own wedding to Magdalena that I hadn’t really noticed all the white flowers that I now saw and which smelled so very sweet… I think they were Gardenia’s arranged hanging in twists around and down polls placed alongside as well as in the back and in front of the wedding venue. As I walked Eviana down the aisle, I could hear her thoughts of overwhelming love for Victor and the beauty of it was so intense that it was all I could do to keep from crying. I also could hear Victor’s concern that he might faint due to the picture of loveliness walking toward him and prepared to be his bride. I sent him my thoughts; Steady on young man, the ceremony will be over before you know it and you’ll have a long time to enjoy your life with this wonderful lady. If you can’t read her thoughts right now, I can and I can confirm her deep love for you. I am so very proud to welcome you into the family as my son-in-law! What is it the Brits say, something about keeping a stiff upper-lip? Well, just keep SOMETHING stiff for a little bit longer. Then I smiled at him and he smiled back, or maybe he was smiling as his future bride drew nigh. Whatever it was, he seemed to take courage in the stars he saw in her eyes. At this realization I could feel tears on my own cheeks.
Once again, Vladimir had a gift of a dazzling five carat Red Ruby mounted in a Gold ring. This looked to be a twin to the one he had provided when I wed Magdalena. I was sure this was also one from the Hermitage collection for Victor, the groom, to place on the finger of Eviana, his bride.

There was a reception held afterwards; however I only got a parting glance of Victor and Eviana as food evidently wasn’t on their minds. Vladimir had arranged for them to stay in the bedroom at the Menshikov Palace which was completed in 1721 and was the most luxurious building during the time of Peter the Great.
Soon, Vladimir had corralled us and we were transported to the same palace where we entered a private suite of rooms that had been prepared for us. There we found Vlad, Grandmother and Roger and after hugs and kisses we sat down to discuss the wedding and what we had accomplished at the Canadian Coven.

Immortal Relations Coming Out is available in print and digital as is
the first book: Immortal Relations and the second book Immortal Relations, Love and War NOTE: The first book is for Mature Adults!


  1. Thanks so much. I enjoyed this snippet. Is it set in Russia? It seems to be, but then you talk about the Canadian Coven, so I wasn't sure.

  2. Yes, the wedding between Victor (Canadian) & Eviana (Czech) takes place at the Hermitage in St. Petersburg, The Russian Federation (not the old Soviet Union). At the request of Russian President Kolukov, who had been turned in order to save him from an aggressive cancer. He is extremely close to the guardian vampires and held the previous wedding between Magdalena Dvora'k (Czech & mother of Eviana) and Gary Logan (from the U.S. & father of Eviana) on pages 60-64 in book #2 "Immortal Relations, Love and War." Each book stands alone; however, readers will find new information about these peace loving vampires by reading all three (current) books.

  3. The third novel has our guardian vampires opening a coven in Southern Canada to monitor the unconstitutional actions of the Marxist regime in Washington, D.C. as well as preparing to support those resisting the take-over of America by these power-mad and corrupt agents of evil.
