Medeiros takes the sensual, midnight world of the vampire and illuminates
it with her masterful writing and unforgettable characters. She draws on deep emotions and dark passions to weave
a spellbinding tale filled with worldly and otherworldly desire that quite
simply, mesmerizes.

Continuing from where After Midnight left off, in London, 1826, Julian Kane returns after a five-year search to reclaim his mortal soul from the vampire who turned him into a creature of the night.

A series of brutal murders has Julian's vampire-hunting brother wondering if Julian is involved with the killings. Or is it another dangerous vampire stalking the streets? Only Portia Cabot, who once loved Julian, can uncover the truth. But it is dangerous for Portia to be near Julian, since she still craves his touch. Though he may try to thrust her away, Julian knows Portia can help clear his name and find his soul so he can savor her love for a lifetime. (Avon, Oct., 384 pp., $6.99)
