The book is set in Salem, Massachusetts. It’s the perfect setting for a book about vampires and witches.
Sarah has had awful nightmares for many years. She has also recently divorced her husband and moved to Salem. In many of the dreams, it’s like she’s seeing someone else’s memories. She also sees a man without a face that she thinks is her husband – not her ex-husband. Who is he? Are her dreams really memories?
While taking a tour of Salem, she is intrigued by one of the houses and its owner, James. Apparently, Sarah looks like his wife who passed away. James doesn’t tell her that his wife died during the Salem Witch Trials or that he is a vampire. Sarah and James start spending quite a bit of time together and are starting to fall in love. At first, James isn’t sure if he likes Sarah because she looks like his wife.
Her best friend/boss is a witch, J . J and her coven want to help Sarah learn more about what’s going on with her dreams. J also knows that James is a vampire and pleads with him to tell Sarah. She thinks it will help them both to move forward with their relationship.
After some hesitation, Sarah agrees to do a past life regression session. The session reveals so much that I cannot tell you. It will all make sense to you after you read the book for yourself.
Besides the issues with Sarah, James is trying to avoid a vampire hunter who is also a reporter. He’s pretty sure that the vampire hunter is going to expose him and his vampire friends.
If you like vampire romances, then you will enjoy Her Dear and Loving Husband. If you are a vampire hunter or have something against witches, then you might not like this book.

If we were having coffee, I would tell you that the kid, Lucas and I went to the Halloween festivities in town. It was so much fun.
I put my outfit together in 15 minutes. Luckily, I had a vision and it panned out.
The kid won 3rd place in the costume contest. If we had gone with green skin, she could’ve won. But she was happy with her regular sized Kit-Kat so we’re happy.
There wasn’t an adult costume category. Kind of disappointed. I could’ve won a regular sized candy bar too.
However, I did a good deed for a friend and totally feel like I’m the Queen of Halloween. The kid also wished that Halloween never ended. I feel the same way. She is totally going to be the next Queen of Halloween.
My favorite fall memories are almost all related to Halloween. I loved going trick-or-treating when I was a kid. There was candy and costumes. My aunt hates Halloween but she would always come to see my costume. Then she would go into hiding until the coast was clear from trick-or-treaters. I think she still does hides until Halloween is over.
When I was in college, there were Halloween parties. So two of my favorite things, dressing up and dancing, in one night. Plus, boys. It was a win-win-win. So much winning in those days.
When I was a young adult, the Halloween parties had costumes, dancing and booze.
After having kids, I got to dress them up for trick-or-treating and Halloween parades. My kids have been a variety of witches,unicorns, princesses, dragons, lions, superheroes and vampires.
This year the teenager is going to be a Steampunk masquerade person. The middle kid wants to be Wolverine. The youngest wants to be a vampire. I’m still aiming for the Mad Hatter.
Lucas thinks I should dress everyone as a vampire and scare the neighbor. No matter what, we have to make a trip to the Halloween store for wigs and hats and Wolverine claws. We’re already set with the vampire teeth.
What type of music relaxes you the most or do you prefer silence?
Acoustic music usually does the trick.
Show us a two of your favorites photographs? Explain why they are your favorite. If you are not a photographer, think of a two favorite scenes in your life and tell us about them.
My oldest daughter wore the Wonder Woman skirt. It was unexpected.
My youngest daughter wore the Wonder Woman skirt. She ran down the hall for the better part of the day. It is just who she is. The running was expected. I just hadn’t seen her run dressed as Wonder Woman before.
What is your favorite tradition? (family tradition, church tradition, whatever)
Dressing up for Halloween.
If you could go back and talk to yourself at age 18 what advice would you give yourself? Or if you are younger than 25 what words of wisdom would you like to tell yourself at age 50?
Don’t settle for Mr. Right Now. It will not be worth all of the aggravation. Wait for someone better for you.
Tell us if you’re going to dress up tonight for Halloween. (And better yet, show us a picture of your costume!)
This is the costume that I made for Little Sister #2. She is very excited to be dressing up like Wonder Woman. She said I should be Wonder Woman’s mom for Halloween. So that is the plan for Comic Con tomorrow – she’ll be Wonder Woman and I will be Wonder Woman’s mom.
Excuse me while I go find some clothes worthy of a superhero’s mother.
