His Vampyrrhic Bride

A girl … a boy … and a fearsome Viking curse that will tear them apart and unleash a terrifying creature on the world …

What is this striking yet ghostly figure doing gliding across my lawn at midnight Chasing the dangerously beautiful woman into the wood next to his family’s new home, Tom Westonby is attacked and beaten unconscious. Returning home the next day, he meets the stranger, Nicola Bekk, once more. Tom is deeply drawn to her, but unbeknownst to him, Nicola is both protected and enslaved by her Viking ancestry – and the choices he makes will trigger the curse that has blighted the lives of the Bekk family for centuries.

Published in the UK on 28 June 2012, and in the USA on 1 October 2012.
