Do you love vampires? Are you fascinated by the mythology of these creatures, who present as human but can cause so much death and destruction?
I studied vampires in popular culture for my bachelor’s degree at university many years ago, and that brought me to the point of writing my first vampire novel, Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel).
Here is an excerpt from book 5 in the Redcliffe novels series, Heart of the Vampire:
“You have to feed, Jack,” I insisted, “And you cannot use me. We tried that before and you almost killed me, remember?”
“You found a way to survive,” my vampire replied gruffly.
I laughed, but it was not amusement that brought such a reaction.
“I survived,” I said, emphasizing the word, “because of your brother. Danny saved me. He sacrificed his wolves so that I could claw back some human strength. Maybe that’s what caused this…” I gestured to the empty space on the bed behind me, “thing with Suri.”
“Perhaps,” Jack replied quietly, “But the point is, you survived.”
The Redcliffe novels series follow the adventures of bookshop owner Jessica Stone as she meets a man and falls in love, only to discover the hidden werewolf secrets of her close friends. That includes Simon Bunce, manager of the Ship Inn, who turns out to be lieutenant to the Redcliffe werewolf pack, and lover to the wolf alpha Danny Mason. He fights to protect his master from the ethereal animal familiar who threatens to claim their pack. Who knew the Cornish coast could be so deadly?
