Yes, it is! I am just working through edits now and then I send my new baby to my wonderful publisher at Creativia!
I did a blog post recently about this novel. Just to recap:
Justine Bodeau was born in pre-Revolutionary France, orphaned as a child she is taken in by a family friend who employs her as a seamstress—eventually, she winds up as a seamstress to the court of Queen Marie Antoinette.
She is strong willed and a survivor. Defeat does not occur to her. When she fights off an attack by an aristocrat and kills him, she is given refuge but is soon betrayed and winds up on the streets of Paris—where she is attacked and killed by rogue vampires. But for whatever reason, love will not let her die and the rest of the novel enlarges upon that.
Having been attacked and raised up as a vampire, she goes from wishing to be destroyed, to wanting to survive. This, when she feels passion for the one who brought her back, Gascoyne—the one they call the Vampire Prince of Paris.
When her reason to exist is taken from her—she finds love in the most unlikely of places with another—yet there is hardship and horror too. Still, something in her drives her on, no matter how little reason there seems to be for her to wish to go on.
There is a lot of steamy romance in this one. I had fun writing it and I hope readers enjoy reading it. It’s far less dark than my previous series although it is for readers over 18 years of age. These are vampires, you understand!
Watch this space for publication date!
Each novel in The Blood and Passion Series is a stand alone. Book 2 follows shortly!
