Horrors! Emma’s favorite Gothic novel seems to have come true…but reality is not as fun as fiction. The only man she’s ever loved is home from war, but he has changed in a terrifying way. Unless Emma’s wild imagination is wrong, the love of her life is a vampire! Now she must decide if she can love a creature of darkness, or reveal his secret and lose him forever.

A bolt of nervous energy shot through Emma as the creature who once was Bennett Ashton glided with the grace of a panther into the ballroom. Darkness clung to him as if the night refused to release one of its own. Bennett. He was here. With the same horrified fascination one watches a carriage accident, Emma held her breath, unable to tear her gaze away from him. Dear Bennett, her one love, so cruelly snatched from her by the forces of darkness and transformed into a vampire! Tears burned her eyes. Fanning herself, she fought to regain her composure.
Nearby musicians played their instruments with skill and passion. Guests danced, laughed, and flirted. Overhead, cherubs painted on the gilded ceiling flitted through clouds in blissful ignorance. Servants threaded through revelers with trays of champagne. All remained oblivious to Bennett’s terrifying transformation, his danger. If only Emma could return to such happy ignorance.
Wearing a tailored black superfine, the dark, new Bennett slipped between the guests, occasionally murmuring a greeting. Hundreds of candle-lit chandeliers illuminated his midnight hair and his unnaturally pale skin, almost as white as his crisp shirt and cravat.
Emma’s heart raced, and his magnetic pull nearly propelled her toward him. She locked her legs and bit her lip. No. She must not give into temptation. He was no longer her Bennett. Regardless of her love for the man he once was, she must not fall prey to this monster.
