The Demon Count Novels

First published as two novels, The Demon Count Novels are now available in this collected ebook edition.

The Demon Count

In a world of grandeur but also nightmarish evils, his dangerous passion drew her to him . . .

As soon as she arrives in Venice, golden-haired Charlotte Morrow is pursued by the city’s most dashing and celebrated men. Young and reckless, the orphaned English ward of a mysterious guardian expects a life of parties and adventure.

Instead she finds herself little better than a bird in a gilded cage at Edentide, her guardian’s immense palazzo on the Grand Canal. A “Ghoul of Venice” is terrorizing the city, draining beautiful young women of their blood. To Charlotte’s horror, her handsome, brooding guardian, whom she secretly calls the Demon Count, is considered a prime suspect. Every night in his mansion is a spine-tingling battle between passion and fear, as he draws her to him with irresistible desires and dark cravings.

Is he protecting her from the Ghoul, or savoring the prospect of her seduction and murder?

The Demon Count’s Daughter

A love for danger is bred in her blood.

Her willful passion sends her into the arms of a stranger.

It’s impossible for a young woman with Luciana’s passionate bloodlines to lead a boring, sheltered life in London. With her parents away on holiday, she and a small entourage escape to Venice, where the mystery, danger and romance of her mother and father’s early years have always beckoned.

Tall and raven-haired, the beauty is on a secret mission and is expecting to meet with compatriots. But the dangers surround her far more than she imagined, and her father’s aged palazzo is not the sanctuary she hoped for. Her only protection is an irresistible but mysterious stranger who captures her heart. His secrets tell him to keep his distance. But Luciana will get what she wants. She is, after all, the Demon Count’s daughter.

The Wicked House of Rohan

A fallen woman. A most wicked plan for redemption.

Venice, 1740. Desperate, starving, Kathleen Strong makes her way to a job interview that promises a chance at proper employment… and maybe a bite to eat. Accused of “gross immorality,” she’s adrift after being dismissed from her governess position, despite being entirely innocent.

That innocence is precisely what a mysterious group of debauched aristocrats finds so alluring about Miss Strong. When they propose a scandalous offer that she can’t refuse… she can’t refuse. But if the darkly gallant Alistair Rohan, a gentleman involved in all manner of wicked deeds himself, has anything to say about it, Kathleen can escape her disrepute in another way. Of course, the escape route looks very similar to the group’s illicit proposition itself…

Break the Night

A silent scream, a bloodstained knife…

A century past, the faceless killer had strolled out of the London fog and into history, the most infamous murderer who ever lived. And only reporter J. R. Damien knew he had never died, could never die. It was impossible, and yet it was true–Saucy Jack was back, plying his trade in the back alleys of Venice, California.. . .

And Saucy Jack takes another life…

Lizzie Stride refused to accept the ravings of this man who swore she was fated to die, again and again, at the hands of a long-dead madman. But J. R. Damien’s haunted eyes told her she must follow in a century-old dance of death and desire–with a man who feared he was the reincarnation of Jack the Ripper..

The Demon Count’s Daughter

As a bold adventuress, Luciana arrived in strife-torn Italy embarked on a secret mission. Searching for the mysterious Tonetti, fleeing sinister General Eisenhoph, she had no sooner arrived than she was enmeshed in a web of intrigue and danger – danger that stirred her heart and marked her destiny with the reckless daring that made her the Demon Count’s daughter.
