What if you had an incurable disease? Maybe you too would think that becoming a vampire might be your best bet. Winter Kennedy has moved to Nome looking for vampires only to find Aiden Hightower. She doesn’t expect to fall in love, but fall deeply and passionately in love she does.
This unplanned action gets in the way of her desire to become a vampire and soon she is confused as to what direction her life should take. Can she burden her new found love with the knowledge that she will die within two years, barring a miracle? Watching her dear mother die a horrible death only two years earlier has left a permanent mark on Winter, and is what has driven her to make desperate decisions regarding her own fate.
Adding to this confusion is Ellie Stone’s proposal (Aiden’s married sister) to heal Winter of her fatal disease. Ellie is the real deal. She can heal others at will. However, it leaves her drained and very weak for days after. And her new pregnancy complicates the matter.
The arrival of the vampire that Winter had purposely called up before falling in love, Christopher St John, further complicates her life when he desires her as his new mate. The pressure on Winter is enormous, but after much internal turmoil she chooses Aiden over eternal life.
On the eve of Winter and Aiden’s marriage, Christopher whisks her away to his lair atop a mountain in Alaska where he changes her into a vampire after receiving a special sanction to do so. Devastated by the turn of events and blaming herself for her actions, Winter is lost until she finds solace in discovering cures for human diseases in her new home.

Excerpt from Forever Woman:
The murmur of voices was silenced in an instant by the ancient magistrate’s unearthly cold stare as he stood with full authority, blacked-hooded and paper-white, and read from the book of punishments, his voice heralding the full power of the Condita, the Vampire Establishment.
“It is our character and our will that makes and mars our lives. Your defense that you were not aware of the edict against Human feeding falters as it does not justify the excessive crime of random acts of terror against humans. Modern Vampire lore is clear on this point, as it is written.”
And with a short pause for emphasis, continued his diatribe in the echoing tone of an inhuman mountain of stone. The more astute members of his audience felt an infinitesimal flicker of his savoring the silence before his final pronouncement began.
“Therefore, it is the verdict of this court that the vampyre, Katrianna Ivanski, in absentia, for her crimes against the Condita, be chained for no less than twenty four hours to the punishment polus in the central courtyard of the templum. May the Confuto have mercy on your undead soul.”
