The Vampire Duology

The Vampire

What better way to introduce The Vampire Duology than in the vampire's own words?

The vampire that stood over my shoulder, politely demanding my attention. Centuries old and a casual killer when the need arises. No one lives that long without getting what they want, even if it takes years. Enter Tina, kidnapped by Kalmár and with no wish to stay in the world he'd brought her into. She must adapt or die.

Those wanting teenage kicks and thrills had better stand aside. This is a story of a woman held hostage with only her own exhausted brain to help. The slow seductive burn of sleepless nights. The nightmare of a horrific reality setting in and the endless patience of a dark being who has time on his side.

Sitting somewhere between Anne Rice and Bram Stoker this is perfect for fans of paranormal romance that want something different to savour. The Vampire Duology is a modern twist on the classic vampire tale.

Praise for A Dark Inheritance -


“… from the moment I picked it up I was captivated, I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.” - Amazon review


“It offers so much more than the normal horror, blood-sucking narrative; which has been so overdone of late. I have to admit I am not that much of a fan of horror, but this book is so well written I was hooked from the start.” - Good reads review


“A whole new take on the vampire novel. Well written, with an excellent plot. Characters are brilliantly presented and the reader feels completely engaged with them throughout the novel.”

- Amazon review


“Let's face it, we all like a great vampire story, but after a while they tend to all seem to be the same, so it's nice when someone can bring a new twist to it.” - Goodreads review

She doesn’t expect to find that she has been kidnapped and brought into a world where power is the key to survival and sanity is an optional extra.

Tina discovers she has been watched for many years, she has a rare genetic structure that makes her attractive to vampires and has the possibility of living for well over a century, if she allows herself to become infected. Kalmár has stolen her and intends to keep her captive, hiding her from both her family and other vampires. Normality becomes a frightening place as Tina struggles to escape those holding her and to fights to keep her daughter, her lover and her freedom.
