A Victorian vampire lord seeks an heir for his estate in this English Gothic novel with passion and flair.
Lord Gregory Stockton is a powerful and respected businessman embracing the modern era of the Victorian industrial revolution. He has a grand and beautiful manor house complete with a repertoire of servants, and his young wife is charming, attractive, and the perfect lady to his gentleman. The only thing they lack is an heir to the family estate. Lord Gregory knows he can never produce a child, for he is a vampire, although his wife and servants know nothing of his secrets. There are other ways to provide heirs for his estate, however, and Lord Gregory has noticed the romantic attraction between his wife and the young stable hand Marcus Scott. He hatches a plan to bring the would-be lovers together, and then cruelly tear them apart as he continues to build his empire and secure his power base in the south of England. The humans are pawns in the vampire’s game of lust, love and control.
Gregory stood and walked round the desk. In a lightning-quick movement he was sitting beside Amelia on the sofa. She did not react, she merely continued smiling.
“I believe at this very moment, he is being cared for by his favourite servant, Mary Jones. You remember, I told you about her?” Gregory said.
“Yes,” Amelia replied, “Although I don’t see why she is relevant. Surely she will confuse his feelings for your wife.”
“I think not,” Gregory said, “I intend for young Mary to be his first meal after I turn him. It will be a good lesson in controlling his emotions, don’t you think?”
Amelia’s smile grew sinister, and she laughed.
“And there I was thinking you were showing sentiment in your old age, Gregory,” she said, “Yes, actually, this will be a very amusing exercise.”
“Indeed,” Gregory replied, reaching out to touch Amelia’s face, moving his closer to her.
Their lips met in a chaste kiss, which quickly escalated. They nibbled and bit each other, playing in the way that vampires do, and finally they lay entwined together, naked on the sumptuous rug before the fire. Gregory and Amelia were very old friends. They were also very intimate.
