How's that for short? ;-)
Seriously, though, I think this story has something for everyone. It's set in modern Minneapolis and Paris for part of the book. A good majority of the book is set in 1785, Paris. There are vampires, werewolves, a half vampire/half werewolf hero, a faery, a even a familiar. If you're interested in reading the first chapter, you can do so at my website, and here's the blurb to entice you:
He was mesmerizing, a vampire like none other...but the fire between Viviane LaMourette and Rhys Hawkes would begin a centuries-long clash between two powerful vampire brothers.In Marie Antoinette's Paris, the beautiful vampire Viviane seeks a male patron who will allow her to live on her own terms. Courted by two feuding brothers, Viviane succumbs to the handsome rebel, Rhys. She's unaware that Rhys has other, darker, motives. He seeks vengeance against his brother, Constantine—by stealing Viviane and tainting her with his blood.
But just as Rhys is realizing the depth of his love for Viviane, his brother takes his revenge.
Two centuries later, Rhys hears the urban legend of the Vampire Snow White, imprisoned deep in the tunnels under Paris. He must find her and set her free, but will he be able to save her from the evil still intent on destroying them?
"This is an absorbing story that switches smoothly between the past and the present, with the majority of the storyline’s time spent in the past. Those who enjoy the darker, bloodier vampire tales — those that are more horror than romance — will find this one compelling." — RTBookReviews
