Seven vampires gather under the roof of Vauquelin’s palatial dwelling in the heart of Paris. A meeting to gain an understanding of each other, to grow closer; a meeting of masters and vampire youth, an education perhaps for them all.
But nothing can prepare them for the events that follow. It is not any outside influence that threatens to tear them apart, but a fierce, kindling flame within: a flame that may burn it all down to the ground.
Loves that were once thought infallible and truths once steadfast come crumbling down in this dark, tragic romance where immortal souls question everything they once held as true.
With opulent, descriptive detail and an off-the-charts spice level, be ready for these vampires to take you on a journey where high passions and high heat lead to even higher stakes. Be ready (you’ll never be ready). Available for pre-order now in eBook, with physical editions to follow soon, you can guarantee your copy here.

When Mike Denver’s sister, Kelly, mysteriously vanishes along with her best friend, Jennifer Jones, he enlists the help of Jennifer’s distraught father to search for them. The police are seemingly clueless, and time is of the essence, but can Mike help Sam overcome his drinking-to-cope method for long enough to search in earnest?
Their rudimentary investigative skills lead them on a journey through the countryside, where they finally arrive at a strange structure not found on any of their maps. A tall, stone wall seemingly stretching for a mile in each direction. Mike and Sam know that whatever lies on the other side has something to do with the girls’ disappearance.
Nothing can prepare them for what they are about to discover. It quickly becomes clear that they are not wanted in this mysterious, uncharted village, as Mike and Sam find themselves in a fight for survival against an army of robed maniacs. And why is everyone here so… old? All except for one; the beautiful Eve Lockwood.
To unlock the mysteries of the village and a curse known only as Centum, Mike and Sam will have to first survive the night. Easier said than done when you’re in The Village of C. Available for pre-order now in eBook, with a paperback edition to follow, you can guarantee your copy here.
