PHANTOM LOVER originally appeared for free on the website. It is now in print in the anthology DARK BITES. And is available as a stand-alone ebook.

V’Aidan is not quite what he seems. In the realm of the Dream-Hunters, he has no equal. He is a nightmare Skotos who knows your worst fear and uses it to create the most dreaded nightmares he can to feed his addiction for human emotion. The more you’re terrified, the more he feels.

Erin is a normal woman whose dreams are being haunted by evil Skoti out to scare her to death. Literally. When V’Aidan shows up, she thinks him to be her champion.

But is he that or something far more sinister?



To order a copy of the story in a book, please see the Dark Bites page.













The hero

One of the most dreaded Skoti, V'Aidan is addicted to human nightmares. Nothing and no one, and certainly not the Oneroi are going to stop him from pursuing whatever human target catches his fancy. After all, there are no rules in dreams. And he is addicted to human emotion. Whatever it takes to get his next fix, he will do. Consequences and lives be damned.
