He praised Charlotte andContinue reading “Charlotte: Season of The Vampire”

Charlotte: Lucky Ones

There was a time Charlotte, blinded by love, saw Caleb as the future and nothing more. Despite the pleasures she discovered within Caleb’s arms, Charlotte grew restless.

Charlotte: Cornelius Vatore-Grace

Charlotte knew meeting her siblings would be problematic. She never expected open arms, but her brother’s hostility surprised her.

She was grateful, but theContinue reading “Charlotte: Cornelius Vatore-Grace”

Patrick: A Promise to my daughters

Part One Windenberg was a place Patrick had not visited. He planned to bring the twins, but he was unsure the historic town would capture their interest. He wondered if tales of monsters living in the waters would inspire Daciana. He could weave in stories of noble ladies to captivate Luliana. An uneasy feeling gnawed,Continue reading “Patrick: A Promise to my daughters”

Charlotte: Guilty Drinker

In the years since she left Newcrest, Charlotte had died. Her resurrection remained a guarded secret. She began learning what she could from Caleb and his books.

Those sympathetic to their union provided plasma packsContinue reading “Charlotte: Guilty Drinker”

Plumes of purple smoke billowed around herContinue reading “Charlotte: Master of Herself”

Charlotte: Restrained

Charlotte grew restless in her stone prison. The iron gate tormented her, preventing access to the life Caleb promised.

There were vampire books coveringContinue reading “Charlotte: Restrained”

Charlotte: So She Might Live

Her chest fell silent, and the throbbing of her veins remained static, yet every nerve was on fire. Charlotte feared her skin would blister should the pain not subside. The weight of her body pressing into the bed was excruciating. Caleb’s arms as lead weights holding her down. She bolted upright, a second to gatherContinue reading “Charlotte: So She Might Live”

Charlotte: As in Death

Caleb remembers; Vlad is a stickler for tradition. The coffin, funeral charade, and buried six feet down. Charlotte deserved better than fear as she was reborn to him. His hands trembled as the memories flooded his system. Caleb panicked; vampires had no need of breath unless speaking; his was rapid. The silence, blackness, the confinesContinue reading “Charlotte: As in Death”

Charlotte: Blood Rite

Part Two Her eyes pleaded; Caleb backed away; he could feel the weight of Vlad, his voice warning him what would happen. Curtains twitched; Charlotte swore she would find a way to live immortal. Either Caleb turned her, or she would knock on every door and welcome death if that’s what they offered. A lifeContinue reading “Charlotte: Blood Rite”
