A frantic mother researches her daughter’s flawed DNA in a race against time, suffering disappointment after disappointment in her search for a cure.
In this sequel to Sinners’ Opera, Morgan D’Arcy, English lord, classical pianist and vampire, finally wins his Isabeau. Six months of painful separation have eroded Isabeau’s need to remain true to her wicked bargain with the most powerful vampire in the world, Lucien St. Albans. During their estrangement, Isabeau gives birth to Morgan’s daughter, Eroica—a DarkeChilde, half-human and half-vampire, outlawed by the Vampyre Code. She loves Morgan too much to live without him and relents to his enticing pursuit, but a dangerous confession nearly shatters their idyllic existence. In a dark moment, Morgan tells Isabeau their child carries a defective gene that will cause Eroica to go mad at puberty.
Eroica D’Arcy is the subject of Isabeau’s deal with the devil. When their beautiful blonde daughter reaches her twentieth birthday, she is promised to the Dark Prince of vampires, Lucien St. Albans.
Born in South Carolina, Linda is something of a gypsy. No nothing quite so romantic, she says! She has lived in England, Canada, Miami, Atlanta and Houston. She’s seen a lot of this country from the windshield of a truck pulling a horse trailer, having bred, trained and showed Andalusian horses for many years. With Cardinal Desires, a vampire paranormal to be released by Double Dragon Publishing, Linda won the Georgia Romance Writers Magnolia Award. She is a retired Legal Assistant. She has two wonderful sons. She loves Andalusian and Lusitano horses, her snappy black convertible and her parlor grand piano—and writing, of course. Visit her at http://www.lindanightingale.com for a free story, Vampyre Hunt. Her published novels are Gemini Rising, a rather controversial dark fantasy; Sinners’ Opera, a paranormal romance; Cardinal Desires, a paranormal romance; and Sinners’ Obsession, a paranormal romance sequel to Sinners’ Opera.
