Can a monster find love?

HEART OF FRANKENSTEIN

Can a monster find love?

In 1718, he was abandoned then betrayed, spurring his relentless desire for revenge against his creator, Victor Frankenstein. It is now the 21st Century, and despite his fervent wish for death, he still exists, tortured by his crimes, searching only for peace.

Angela Ellis would have frozen to death in the harsh Alaskan wilderness if not for the man who found her on an icy ledge. He calls her Angel, but has no name himself. He is kind, caring, handsome, and scarred both outside and inside. The more she learns about him, the more she wants to know…and the more she falls in love.

He is unworthy of love unless he can confess, but his secrets are buried deep and to reveal them would be to rip out his soul and lose his Angel. Unfortunately, he is given no say in the matter. Nature has a way of revealing all.

A SPECIAL INTERVIEW with LEXI POST's HERO
ANGI: Do you read a lot in the Alaskan Wilderness?
Frankenstein’s Creation: I do. Mostly classics, though some are “how to” books. I have two built in bookcases in my cabin. In the winter, there is not much to be done, so reading is my pastime. Books have always been a prized possession to me. They have helped me understand mankind and morality.

ANGI: What have you loved most since 1718?
Frankenstein’s Creation: Isolation. Being around men is rarely a good experience, though I did befriend an Inuit wise man in the 1770s. He taught me more than even my precious books. But being away from mankind is best for me. I don’t have to hide what I am, an abomination. I don’t have to hide my scars, my strength, or the fact the cold doesn’t bother me or that I don’t bleed.

ANGI: What did you find most curious about Angel?
Frankenstein’s Creation: That she is delicate physically, but strong mentally. She also likes to talk…a lot. Her mind is quick and she has the capacity to look beyond appearances. She has spent her life travelling the world, learning about other cultures and viewing great wonders. She loves to learn, even from me. I have to admit, I don’t always understand her thought process, but she tells me I’m not supposed to, so I’m content.

ANGI: Why Alaska?
Frankenstein’s Creation: When Dr. Victor Frankenstein died, he was on a ship in the Arctic Circle. I had led him there because it was easier to move about without encountering men. I had planned to burn myself to death after he passed, but I discovered I couldn’t die, so I stayed in the Arctic Circle. I spent three hundred years traveling and living in various places from Greenland to the North Pole to Canada. It was only a matter of time before I landed in northern Alaska.

ANGI: What has kept you going through the centuries?
Frankenstein’s Creation: My search for peace. I thought if I spent my life saving people, helping them, it would wash away the stain of my former deeds. When I first found Angel, I thought she could be my redemption, but I was wrong on all accounts. I needed to love to truly find peace, but since I’d never been loved, I didn’t know how powerful it could be.
 
ANGI: The most daring thing you’ve ever done… Care to share?

Frankenstein’s Creation: I have always been something other than human, so daring as in physical feats for the average man is not so daring for me. Swimming under the ice for days, being buried in an avalanche, wrestling with a polar bear are not “daring” for me. I think the most daring thing I’ve ever done, which I think would be the same for mankind, is to fall in love. That was by far the most painful yet joyous thing I’ve ever done.

A QUESTION FOR LEXI: What makes these boots your favorite?
LEXI:  LOL Because they have the most colors and bling of all the boots I own :-) Besides they're great for line dancing

Now he was sure something other than his own dismissal was riding on this assignment. A twinge of guilt niggled at Malcolm’s psyche, but he pushed it away. Joy was an accomplished spirit guide. The antithesis of him, but still very successful. Not only would they do what needed to be done, but he would show her reality, proving to her that her way of looking at life and death was too idealistic.
She was too happy and too confident in that happiness. She needed to be taught that her way of guiding the living would only leave them unprepared for what lay ahead. The future was not puppies and marshmallows.
Cameron leaned back in his chair and looked over at him. “How do you know Joy? I didn’t think you spent your free time in the same places she does?”
He shook his head. “I don’t. But having been here longer than you, I run into other guides whether I want to or not. I also know of her success rate with the living, and if as you say, this is my last chance to prove I should keep my job, I want the best.”
His boss nodded. “She is the best, but her methods are far different from yours. Then again, maybe you’ll learn something that will help you.”

Or maybe she’d learn from him.

He didn’t move, and she couldn’t go through the door unless he did.
“Braeden? You need to step aside for me to leave.”
“And what if I don’t want you to leave?”
Her breath caught in her throat as tingling sped from her head to her toes. She swallowed hard. “What do you mean?” She turned away to give herself a moment without looking at his handsome visage. “Did I forget something?”

The floor creaked behind her and she stepped forward to inspect the water pitcher. If he touched her again, she’d be lost.

Letting his head drop, Tyler ran his hand through his short hair. Would he have these dreams forever? It had been four months since the accident. Why wouldn’t they stop?
You have unresolved emotions.
The voice of the shrink he secretly went to hammered against his brain. He had only a week before he returned to regular duty. No one knew how much he dreaded that. How was he supposed to continue as a rescue swimmer when he’d woken in the hospital with a sudden fear of heights?

 “Can’t you do something to increase the odds in her favor?” She was a vet after all. “Like drugs or something?”
Jenna frowned at him but turned her attention back to Macy when the horse whined. She spoke quietly. “Do me a favor and stay out of the way.”

Logan ground his teeth to hold in his response. For the mare’s sake, he’d step back, but after this, the woman would be getting an earful of opinion from him whether she wanted it or not.

    1. Hi Mary, on the Caribbean island I lived on for 5 years, they didn't celebrate it either. It was another fascinating thing I learned from living in a different culture. :-)

  2. We go all out! Halloween is my favorite holiday! We decorate the inside starting in early Sept. and the outside at the end of the Sept.. A couple days before Halloween we have a pumpkin carving event with my daughter and her friends. Then on Halloween, I dress up in my Gothic Vampiress costume to hand out candy and have the little kids believing that it's all real. But of course I'm a friendly vampire. ;)

  5. We used to do a lot when the neighborhood was full of small kids...have parties, dress up, decorate, etc. Now that they are all grown and gone, there are just 2 sets of little ones so we make up baskets with goodies and candy and they come get them and show us their costumes or we take them to them.

  14. We just take the kids trick or treating though My 13 yr old is bigger than me now so I should probably dress up and go in place of him now so they don't think some older teen isn't trying to get candy LOL
