The Book of the Damned reads “Know ye this—a Merciful God hath provided release from the damning curse of vampirism. If the creature be righteous, loving truly and truly loved in return, God may grant he become human once more.”
But at what price…?
Szeretni’s days are spent translating occultic texts and her nights dreaming of romance. Shunned by Society because of family madness, she despairs of finding a man with whom to share her life. Then she meets the enigmatic Baron Corvinus, and she dares to hope love has found her at last.
A once great king, Matthias Corvinus has lost his faith in love. Three hundred years before, aided by a woman’s betrayal, Vlad Dracula changed him into a vampire. When Matthias finds himself drawn to the innocent Szeretni, he wonders if she too will betray him, or if he will gain peace for a brief moment in his never-ending lifetime.
When Dracula again makes his presence known, Matthias must face his past. Should he save the woman he’s come to love before Vlad makes her his prey…or let her go before she can “feed” on him. Sucking out his heart, his mind, his very soul…
