Kate Hill draws "St. Augustine's Silhouettes" with skill and fervor

A killer runs loose in a small American town. When free-spirited Katherine allies herself with a man dubbed Satan by the townsfolk, has she found the man of her dreams or has she fallen into the hands of a murderer?

Excerpt from St. Augustine's Silhouettes:

Moonlight bathed the empty streets as Katherine approached St. Augustine's oddity shop. Her hands trembled and part of her hoped he wouldn't be there.

A silver candelabrum holding three black tapers illuminated his pale face. He bent over the counter and wrote in a thick, leather-bound book.

His cloak draped over her arm, she raised her free hand to tap on the window but lost her courage. She was about to turn away when, as if by some otherworldly sense, he lifted his gaze to hers. She considered fleeing, but he was already halfway across the shop. Seconds later, he unlocked the door.

"Katherine Sinclair, what are you doing in my little portion of hell?" His soft voice was subtly mocking, though when she met his gaze she saw no real anger or contempt. "Still, it's after dark and no one will see, unless someone is spying."

She swallowed audibly, wondering if he somehow knew about her overhearing his conversation with Reverend Harmon. She convinced herself that she was overreacting because of the strange and disturbing events she'd recently witnessed, from being chased by the killer to learning about the good Reverend's bad behavior.

Her growing attraction to St. Augustine also unsettled her, particularly since she was no longer certain of his preferences. Perhaps the lovers and husbands of the town had misplaced hatred for Alister. Simply because the women found him beautiful didn't mean he desired them as well.

"I wanted to return this." She held the cloak out to him. She should have left immediately after he took it, but she couldn't resist glancing around him to better see the infamous shop.

"Come on." St. Augustine stepped aside, making a sweeping gesture with his hand. "A twilight showing for you alone, Miss Sinclair."
