"The eternal quest of a human being is to shatter his loneliness.Ē -- Norman Cousins
Samuel King is an Amish private detective who has lived amongst the English in Independence, Missouri, for sixteen years. When he is hired to find a missing accountant, Morton Clark, Samuelís self-enforced solitary lifestyle is completely disrupted -- the case unexpectedly leads him to the very sexy, very flawed Alistair Simms. Samuel is overwhelmed by his attraction to Alistair, and resisting the vampire is no simple task. Even for a chaste man.
Alistair, a 154-year-old vampire and recluse with familial ties to the kidnapped Morton, has spent his undead years caring for each generation of his brotherís children. To compound his guilt over the abduction of his great-nephew, Alistair is passionately drawn to Samuel. The detectiveís innocence, purity, and physical perfection stir emotions in him he didnít believe he was still capable of feeling. Being immortal was easier when he didnít care.
For two men who have spent lifetimes avoiding relationships and entanglements, finding Morton will be the ultimate test of faith, love, and sacrifice.
Authorís note: Bloody English takes place in the same world as The Beast series. It is an independent book, but you never know who might show up.
