Crimson Child: Death's Gift, Book 4
A Gothic Vampire Historical Romance
Mary Wingfield feels more trapped than when her father had put her under house arrest. She does not want to marry General Hodd, but he is not exactly a bad prospect. On the other hand, the man she does want to marry, her childhood sweetheart Lewis Stuart, is cursed to live the rest of his life as a monster. Making matters worse, a vampire hunter in the family threatens to end Lewis's life. Mary would rather marry a man she does not love and send her sweetheart away than let Lewis stay and be killed.
But Lewis is determined to stay and live with her. As Mary sees the darkest side to Lewis's horrific curse and discovers General Hodd's secret, sinful habits, she goes from not knowing which man to marry to not knowing which man not to marry.
Mary thought she could play the system. Feeling increasingly trapped by her restrictive, yet loving parents and with no chance of marrying her true love, she ponders escaping her family through an ungodly marriage to another man. Lewis, her sweetheart, exposes the ridiculousness of the plan, leaving them at square one.
And finally, an illegitimate child surfaces, giving Mary just the excuse she needs to call off the marriage to General Hodd! But as she believes the man is gone from her life for good, new information arises that makes her want to keep him around—to discover the truth.
