ONE WITH THE DARKNESS
Caligula's Rome is the backdrop for
the newest vampire tale from the incomparable Squires. Love, honor and second chances are at stake as two lovers work to change destiny. Plenty of action and treacherous politics keep the story moving, while the sensuous romance is spellbinding. Squires is on a roll!
Over numerous centuries, Contessa Donnatella di Poliziano has bitterly regretted following the vampire rule that forbade the making of a new vampire. Because of that edict, Donnatella lost the only man she ever loved, Jergan. Now a long-hidden note from her good friends Michelangelo and Leonardo lead Donnatella to a time machine and a second chance. She steps back in time to the Roman Empire, where she was once Livia Quintus Lucellus.
But upon her return, Donnatella becomes Livia -- without the memories of why she returned. As part of the movement to remove Caligula, Livia's in jeopardy, but it is buying a slave named Jergan that initiates fateful events. Only her dreams give Livia clues about the treacherous dangers ahead. (ST. MARTIN'S, Jun., 341 pp., $6.99)
