Deep within the Carpathian Mountains, a clan of vampires seeks solace. For millennia, these lost royals have lived in the shadows, hiding their claim to a lineage older than time itself… But this one curse is about to thrust them into the light.
I’ve lived so long in the shadows, can you blame me for not giving a rat’s ass about humanity any longer? This lost village in the middle of the Carpathian Mountains is our latest hideout, lest the enemies of our royal bloodline find us again. And by us, I mean me and my five equally psychotic siblings—except, really, two of them are sweet as angels.
Anyway. Da, we’re vampiri. And not the sparkle and vegetarian kind, either. The last thing we should do is attract attention and risk exposing ourselves. But when my sister falls mysteriously ill, the only person who can help her out is the old healer in town. And when he turns up dead? That leaves me with his way-too-stubborn and modern daughter. Very human daughter.
I need Tassa to help my sister, but she’s got questions of her own about her father’s mysterious death, and our presence here. And an attitude to go with said questions, one that’s reminding me what it’s like to feel.
How much can I reveal, without it affecting the rest of us?
How much will she take, before running away screaming?
And how long until I fall head over heels for her?
One day, I’m staring at the mysterious castle on the border of my village, wondering what mysteries it hides. The next, I’m in said castle, basically sequestered by a vampir who saved my life, and five others who’d like nothing more than to snack off me. Well, except maybe Violeta, but she’s sick and that doesn’t count.
I should leave. Really, that’s what any human with half a brain would do.
But I can’t—not when they’re the link to finding out what happened to Daddy. And maybe, just maybe, I can save one of them from imminent death. Out of all of them, surely she deserves it?
Never mind I’m starting to have sexy dreams about Nico, and then more weird shit starts happening as all the lore around me unravels faster than a Maserati running at full speed.
I never believed in curses, but now I’m living in one.
I never believed in myths and legends, now I’m proven wrong.
I never believed in love, and now I’m wondering again.
The only question is, will I escape with my life and heart intact, or become food for these royals?
