Release day: Bloodlust Denied

7 June 2013

Today is the official release of Bloodlust Denied by Christina Phillips (ebook, Ellora’s Cave Twilight). Here’s the blurb:

Bloodlust DeniedTired of the thin-blooded aristocrats in 1815 London, Alexius yearns for better sport. He is drawn to a dark-haired seductress who shows no fear and refuses to obey his commands. Entranced by such novelty, he denies his bloodlust and decides to keep her to warm his bed.

Immortal vampire hunter Morana has never mistaken her prey before, but the dark stranger mesmerizes her, enticing her to forget everything but the dangerous pleasure she finds in his arms.

Neither one can deny the pull of the other, but there is something beyond the lust—a recognition neither can put a name to. The past and present collide and unless they discover the truth behind the lies, Death will triumph once more.

Inside Scoop: Silk makes much softer shackles than iron, but is just as binding as our lovers engage in light BDSM sport with spanking and mild submission in this risqué Regency story.

A Romantica® paranormal erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave.

Christina dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

I first got the idea for this book four years ago, when I read a submissions call from Ellora’s Cave for stories connected to music. I instantly had this vision of a dark-haired seductress dancing to the haunting strains of a single violin in a London back alley. I’d also always wanted to write a Regency romance and the two ideas melded when the hero entered the scene. However, he was no ordinary duke. He turned out to be a two-thousand-year-old vampire who had long ago forsaken his honour and conscience. As it turned out I never did submit to EC four years ago as I missed the deadline due to other commitments, but the story always remained in the back of my mind. Eventually I revisited it last year, gave it a good edit and it was picked up by Ellora’s Cave 🙂

You can find out more about this book at Christina’s website or buy it from Ellora’s Cave.

    Hi S E,

    It is a smoking cover! It perfectly captures one of the scenes at the start of the book (except the heroine wasn’t naked… lol)
