This week I'm polishing the second book in my Archangel series, published under my Christina Ashcroft name, but I thought I'd share the blurb to my Vampire Regency novella that recently sold to Ellora's Cave.
It's a dark romance that sweeps Alexius and Morana from the sordid back alleys of London, to an elegant Regency ballroom and finally to a magnificent sixteenth century country estate. I had a lot of fun writing this one!
Lured by blood, driven by lust, Alexius is fascinated by the dark haired seductress who shows no fear and refuses to obey his every command. Entranced by such novelty he denied his rabid bloodlust. Instead he’ll keep her to warm his bed until he tires of her ready tongue and tempting body.
Immortal vampire hunter Morana has never mistaken her prey before. But the dark stranger mesmerizes her, enticing her to forget everything but the dangerous pleasure she finds in his arms, until reality intrudes and she flees his addictive embrace.
When Alexius unexpectedly find her again he’s determined to exact retribution for the way she vanished three years ago. Abductions, bondage and decadent seduction feature in his plans, but before the sun rises dynamics have shifted and he’s the one fighting the silken bonds of captivity.
But as they fall under each other’s erotic spell the past and present collide and unless they discover the truth behind the lies, Death will triumph once more.
