word count: 64,545
England, 1816. A nosferatu, a rogue vampire, hunts unchecked through Sussex. Jeremy Takeshi Colbourne is honor-bound by ancestral duty to find and destroy such madmen. Foremost among the vampires of England, he must find a way to ensure the safety of the English citizens and the Nosferii that live among them.
Then Jeremy and his blood-host Morgan Holland discover a brutally savaged girl. With this latest victim of the nosferatu, Jeremy realizes the time has come to make Morgan aware of the Colbourne responsibilities. But the situation could not have come at a worse time.
For years, Morgan has served as Jeremy's blood-host. Though Morgan adheres faithfully to his Contracted terms, he refuses to surrender to the sexual seduction that completes each feeding. He yields neither his body nor his heart, though Jeremy yearns for both.
As nosferatu's atrocities grow, Jeremy must ask everything of Morgan to gain the strength needed to fight the ravening monster. Will Morgan relent and give up body and heart to help Jeremy defeat their enemy, or will the battle destroy them both?
About the Author
Autumn grew up loving all things historical, all things romance, and all things Japanese. A Regency devotee and Celtic mythology buff, she devoured everything she could find to read on both. As a devoted Japanophile, her love of the country led her to incorporate this love into her writing as well. Her stories are always well spiced with the taste of Japan, handsome lords and feisty ladies, or strange Scottish beasties. Sometimes lightly, sometimes heavily, but always deliciously.
