Vampirology, as every rational mind will admit, is merely a pastime indulged by fanciful schoolgirls and crackpot eccentrics. Emma Lucas, however, is no eccentric and no gullible young miss. Just an unremarkable skeptic with her nose in a book and her boots planted firmly in reality; she knows vampyres for what they truly are--only dreadful superstitions borne across the English Channel. And London, though blighted by a series of bizarre and macabre slayings, is no fertile place for the seeds of eastern monomania. But something menacing has begun to quicken in the shadows of Emma's mind.
And all too soon she finds herself within the ancient ramparts of Winterly Castle. It is there, amidst the foggy Yorkshire moors, that, to her horror, Emma confronts that inescapable proof that defies her crumbling reality. And who better to seduce and initiate the young miss into dark and sumptuous realms of forbidden pleasure and fatal love than the brooding and cryptic overlord himself--Markus Winterly.
