Alison Beightol is a registered nurse and studied history at the University of Florida but these days she works as a realtor. For as long as she can remember, Beightol has had an affinity for vampire stories (she ALWAYS roots for Dracula to win in movies) , romance, and gothic tales that keep her up at night. She lives in Gainesville Florida in a legitimately haunted house with her teen daughter, two sandwich stealing boxer dogs, two rescued cats and her husband Scott M. Baker, who is also a writer. Beightol fills her free time with writing, traveling to lesser known historical sites, maintaining the purple highlights in her hair, and desperately trying to learn to speak German even though her brain defaults to Spanish when she tries. She also never misses an opportunity to hear a really dumb joke or drive super fast. You can find Alison on Facebook at Alison Beightol, Author or on email at firstname.lastname@example.org. She loves to hear from readers!
As the world’s oldest vampire, Eamon Rutherford had selfishly enjoyed over one thousand years of blood, money and beautiful women. Until he decided to take a companion.
Eamon’s less-than-perfect choice is temperamental ballerina Lauryl Mellis, who wants nothing to do with Eamon or being a vampire. After months of fighting and shared misery together, Lauryl escapes from Eamon in London and disappears.
In his quest to find Lauryl, Eamon discovers that he must open himself up to other vampires and their politics, something that threatens his self-imposed isolation. As he struggles with his inner awakening and changing ideals, Eamon discovers that to find love he must learn to love someone other than himself, even if it results in disastrous consequences.

A day after Eamon Rutherford destroys a cadre of vampire hunters sent to kill him, he decides to take his human lover Amelie to London to turn her into a vampire and locate Bernard Townsend, the vampire who has declared a blood war on Eamon.
Bernard plans to reveal vampires to humans and dominate the world. He knows this will never happen as long as Eamon is alive. To defeat Eamon, Bernard turns to his secret offspring Reinhard Heydrich, the Butcher of Prague, to kidnap and kill Eamon’s beloved Amelie.
Eamon must find and save Amelie before Reinhard kills her and Berhard’s plan unfolds. But saving Amelie won’t be easy, for at every turn Eamon finds intrigue and deception, even from those he trusts the most.
