Thank you readers for asking for updates on my next novel. Although Eternal Hunger, like Immortal Obsession and Blood Tears is told in the present tense the vampires constantly flash back to their lives in eighteenth century France.
The character Ghislain who I introduced in Blood Tears is a favorite. He has quite a long and colorful history which will continue to be revealed in Eternal Hunger, as he mentors Christian who he has hidden away in the abandoned Chateau de Singes in the outskirts of Paris. This is the place Ghislain hopes to restore the vampire dynasty he envisions, starting with his son Christian who is about to discover more secrets from his past.
“Michel used to come here.” I found myself back in the massive, decaying yet somehow elegant library. “He would share his tales of debauchery,coming here with Gabrielle to–”
“And with Josette.” Ghislain whispered, following me.
It took me a moment to realize what he was trying to say.
“She came here?”
My mind began to whirl as I tried to call up memories, but I was hundreds of years old. Not everything seems to important at the time and like my human counterparts we forget things too.
“You have been here too Christian, though I imagine you tried to put it out of your mind.”
“What are you saying?”
He was suddenly facing me, pushing his write into my face and before I could protest, a thin trail of blood ran down his arm.
“This will help you remember.”
I latched onto him, his coppery blood stinging my throat. I rarely took vampire blood yet suddenly the images came and I was thrust back in time.
