Beneath the glitter of dazzling 19th-century London Society lurks a bloodthirsty evil....
Vampires have always lived among them, quietly attacking unsuspecting debutantes and dandified lords as well as hackney drivers and Bond Street milliners. If not for the vampire slayers of the Gardella family, these immortal creatures would have long taken over the world.
In every generation, a Gardella is called to accept the family legacy, and this time, Victoria Gardella Grantworth is chosen, on the eve of her debut, to carry the stake.
But as she moves between the crush of ballrooms and dangerous, moonlit streets, Victoria's heart is torn between London's most eligible bachelor, the Marquess of Rockley, and her enigmatic ally, Sebastian Vioget.
And when she comes face to face with the most powerful vampire in history, Victoria must ultimately make the choice between duty and love.
okay, I was going to write up a nice post on this book, but since the lovely Smart Bitch Sarah did a much MUCH better review, I'm just going to link to her review. Read it. Buy the book if it sounds like it will float your boat. It's quite good. The ending is a bit disturbing if you want a strict romance HEA, but keep in mind that this looks to be a true series in that the books will follow Victoria and not just individual couples. Her story is just beginning here.
