He wanted her off his hands…

Vincent Tremayne, the reclusive “Devil Earl,” has been manipulated into taking rambunctious Lydia Price as his ward. As Lord Vampire of Cornwall, Vincent has better things to do than bring out an unruly debutante.

 

Now he’ll do anything to hold on forever

American-born Lydia Price doesn’t care for the stuffy strictures of the ton, and is unimpressed with her foppish suitors. She dreams of studying with the talented but scandalous British portrait painter, Sir Thomas Lawrence. But just when it seems her dreams will come true, Lydia is plunged into Vincent’s dark world and finds herself caught between the life she’s known and a future she never could have imagined.

Tell us something unique about your novel…ie setting, characters concept.

ONE BITE PER NIGHT is the second book in my “Scandals With Bite” series, and my own play on the guardian/ward trope. The hero is the Lord Vampire of Cornwall and the heroine is an American painter who he reluctantly takes into his care.

Here’s the blurb:

He wanted her off his hands…

Now he’ll do anything to hold on forever
American-born Lydia Price doesn’t care for the stuffy strictures of the ton, and is unimpressed with her foppish suitors. She dreams of studying with the talented but scandalous British portrait painter, Sir Thomas Lawrence. But just when it seems her dreams will come true, Lydia is plunged into Vincent’s dark world and finds herself caught between the life she’s known and a future she never could have imagined.

One of the main reasons why I wanted to play with the guardian/ward trope is because I adore the concept of forbidden love. It’s the rebel in me. And this trope is perfect for that because the hero is responsible for the heroine’s well-being and it’s his job to ensure she has a successful marriage…to anyone but him. Delicious!

I also wanted to give the characters more time alone together and have the opportunity for more intimacy.

Aside from the fact that the guardian in question is a vampire, I deviate from the trope in that the hero did not know the heroine since she was a child and he never tries to act like a parent to her. Both of those scenarios always struck me as icky.
Instead she’s the descendant of his best friend, whom he’d made a family alliance with in the seventeenth century.

What are some of your favorite guardian/ ward romances?
