Erotic Romance, Paranormal with Romantic Elements
In 1812 England, after nearly eight centuries of immortal life, Bastian Evanko has finally found the woman he wants to spend forever with. Now he is ready to reveal his secret to her, to tell her he is a vampire. But past experience has shown him mortal women may not be able to accept him for what he is. He's had his share of heartbreak and is hoping this time will be different.
Elise McNeil loves Bastian with all her heart and can't wait to share her life with him, to have a family with him. But when he shows her the monster he hides inside, she is devastated because he lied to her the entire time he courted her. She is unsure if she can trust him, but more importantly, she believes he may be evil and incapable of loving her as he claims to.
As if their situation isn't complicated enough, Elise has a secret of her own. Her brother Jacob is a vampire Hunter. When the two men come face-to-face after Jacob and Elise's parents go missing, will she keep Bastian's secret or betray him for her family's sake? Can Bastian save her from the ruling vampire Elders if she breaks their laws by revealing his secret? Or will the couple find out the hard way that nothing lasts forever?
WARNING: This novelette is a romantic tragedy—with a TRAGIC ending—but the rest of the books in this series will have happy endings.
