A mysterious past, a desperate present and an uncertain future. What’s a girl to do?
Young widow Gloriana St. Clair has lost everything—her memory, her husband, even the
pallet where she’d been sleeping since her money ran out. Near starvation, she’s forced to try her
luck in the alley next to the Globe Theater. With her curves displayed in a borrowed dress, maybe
she can attract a generous and caring protector to support her.
Jeremiah Campbell is drawn to Gloriana immediately and makes his move. The
handsome Scot certainly catches her eye and even buys her a meat pie when he hears her empty
stomach rumbling. Glory decides she has no choice but to go with him when he offers his arm
for a “stroll.” At least his eyes are kind. But an attack by thugs soon shows her that this man can
also be dangerous. When she sees his fangs? Well, surely she imagined them. Because vampires
aren’t real, are they?
This prequel to the Real Vampires series begins the love story between vampire Jeremiah
Campbell and mortal Gloriana St. Clair in 1604 London. You can follow Glory’s adventures
starting with the first book in the long-running series, Real Vampires Have Curves, available at
e-tailers everywhere. See http://gerrybartlett.com for a complete list of the series.
