The first volume in a terrifying new erotic vampire series, Power of Blood, presenting the stories of three very contemporary and very deadly ghouls. In Child of the Night, Carol is in Paris recovering from the end of her marriage when she meets Andre, a mysterious man who tries to seduce her. The story takes a bizarre and chilling twist when Carol sees him murder a man and discovers he is in fact an ancient and powerful vampire. Andre begins to persuade her to hide his existence, and forces Carol to make a sexual arrangement with him in order to save her life—and the life of their unborn child!

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

The police had not taken her seriously, at least the part where she'd seen him bite the old man. She didn't even believe it herself. It was like something out of a horror movie. It didn't make sense and if somebody had told her they'd seen a man murdered like that, she would think they were either joking or crazy.

The strong odour of cigar smoke interrupted her thoughts. She stared at the back of the driver's head wondering if he was the police guard.

The streets she saw out the taxi window looked unfamiliar. He was taking a different route, less direct, to the hotel. She checked the meter. Already it read sixteen francs and the whole ride had only cost eighteen on the way over. Obviously he was going the long way around to get more money out of her.

"Pardon," she said. The driver ignored her. "Look, I want you to go right to the hotel. By the Pont de Pierre, s'il vous plait!"

Still there was no response and she wondered if he spoke English. He didn't change direction. In fact, he sped up.

Carol turned around. Out the rear window she watched the bright lights of the downtown on the other side of the river recede. She decided to jump out at the next stop sign.

The car raced along the right bank, the road dim with intermittent lighting. It had rained here, and the streets and sidewalks were slick, the smell of ozone saturated the air.

Carol saw no other vehicles on the desolate streets, and no pedestrians.

"Stop the car now! Let me out," she yelled, but the driver paid no attention.

She opened the door. They were driving so fast if she leaped out she knew she would be hurt. He began to slow. She glanced up. Ahead, a long silver limousine was parked by the water. A tall man stood beside it.

Although she couldn't see him clearly, instinctively she knew he was the murderer.
