"He was going to tempt Meghann back into his life, and also her unborn child"
It is bad enough she still tries for a normal mortal life,
but is unable to cope with this vampiric pregnancy or being
around Simon. Maggie O'Neal's only help can come from the
masochistic animal that is the sire, Lord Simon Baldevar.
He owns and has studied the ancient book, Infans Noctis,
Nights Child, written by a Roman Senator. Maggie can only
endure this pregnancy with his blood.
Simon had said he would not bother her; she would have to
call for him. During a private attempted abortion, her mind
screamed out to him. Simon was going to temp his Meghann
back into his life, and into his desperately wanted child's.
As far as Maggie was concerned Simon was still the same
evil, domineering fiend she'd been so right to run away
from. But it wasn't fair, his face was so unmarked by time,
the same dashing stranger that had captured her heart
almost 60 years ago.
Could he change? Was she only seeing him thru her mentor,
Alcuin's, eyes? Did she want to try to fall in love with
Simon again-or did she ever stop? Could he be the father
figure of her child, correction - twins?
This is book two of a series by Trisha Baker, first is
CRIMSON KISS. In book one it was unreal pain, suffering and
pleasure that Simon had put Maggie thru, but this book I
almost wondered if Simon was the monster he was made out to
be. The compassion he has for Maggie and her pregnancy, for
their newborn mortal daughter, Elizabeth, and the Dark Son.
CRIMSON NIGHT is a good read, and even if you haven't read
CRIMSON KISS (although you need to), Ms. Baker does update
you on the characters and situations. Thank you Trisha
