A Vampire in Versailles
A thousand-year-old curse. An unstoppable revolution. A love fated to live forever.
Jean-Gabriel de Bourbon is a vampire, brother of the first King of France. An ancient curse and his brother's treachery have linked his survival to that of the monarchy itself. As long as a king sits on the throne of France, he remains alive.
Marguerite de Clermont-Prince is an orphan and heiress in the court of Louis XVI. She dreams of a life on the stage, where she can escape the fortune hunters who prowl the halls of Versailles—especially Etienne, brother of the king's troublemaking cousin, Louis-Philippe d'Orléans.
When an accident gives Jean-Gabriel a taste of Marguerite's blood, they discover that it carries her thoughts and emotions to him, even when they're apart. This mystical attraction proves difficult to resist, even as a jealous Etienne manipulates Louis-Philippe d'Orléans and Louis XVI to keep the lovers apart. But Etienne's actions only bring the revolution closer, endangering everyone and everything they love. To survive, Jean-Gabriel and Marguerite face duels, assassins, marriages, murders, revolution, and an immortal evil that lurks at the heart of the French monarchy.
Combining historical fiction, romance, and the paranormal, A Vampire in Versailles is a dark fantasy that pits an immortal creature against a force even greater than his own: destiny.
