Maximilian Sterling has spent his life doing what he wants, when he wants, until he receives a summons home. His uncle has been murdered, found drained of blood in a London alleyway, and he must return to England at once to settle his affairs. But it won’t hurt to have one last night to himself with a charming Parisienne … who unfortunately turns out to be a vampire, and is looking forward to having Max for supper.
American vampire hunter Ada Burgess just wanted to take a much-needed holiday. But she can’t ignore the bloodsuckers leaving a trail of destruction across Europe long enough to sightsee, including one trying to lure a delectable Englishman to his gory demise. But saving Max Sterling means having yet more problems to solve. Why was Max’s uncle murdered by a vampire? And does a devoted vampire hunter have a chance with a wealthy bon vivant?
Edgar Burgess has devoted his life to keeping New York free of vampires, and is usually successful at sensing and staking them… at least until the night his beautiful next door neighbor and unrequited love is enthralled and kidnapped by one. Finding Molly McKillip becomes his life’s focus at the expense of everything else.
Molly has always liked the rambunctious Burgess family, especially Edgar, but she never thought she would see them again after being lured away from her boarding house by a monster. Edgar’s rescuing her from a vampire den is a shocking and unexpected surprise, and it’s only the first one he has to deliver. Hearing him pour his heart out to her is the second. But before they can sort through their feelings for each other, they have one thing left to do: eliminate the vampire that’s still stalking Molly.
