|Original Cover Art|
Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long taken over the world.
In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake.
But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous, moonlit streets, Victoria's heart is torn between London's most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her enigmatic ally, Sebastian Vioget. And when she comes face to face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make the choice between duty and love.
|New Cover Art 2014|
Not only does Victoria have to navigate the ton, London's elite society, having just come out; filling her dance card with eligible bachelors and finding herself a husband, she is also thrown into the paranormal world; her Aunt was a powerful Venator or Vampire Hunter, and now the legacy has passed on to Victoria, only the third ever female Venator.
The Rest Falls Away is full of action and emotion. Despite warnings from her fellow Venator, the always moody and sarcastic Max, Victoria continues to lead a double life, dancing and socializing during the day and killing vampires at night. At some point her two worlds will collide and it is devastating. Will Victoria go back on her vow to become a Venator and instead lead a normal life, ignorant of the danger waiting in the shadows?
There are three interesting men in Victoria's life.
Max, the tall dark and sarcastic Venator.
Phillip, the Marquess and regular human love interest.
and then there's Sebastian... Vampire club owner, bronze, blonde and alluring. He's strong and seductive, not a vampire, but maybe not quite human either. He is the one character that has stuck with me for 7 years.
I recommend this series to everyone.
