WHAT CAN BE MORE ROMANTIC THAN A STROLL UNDER A TUSCAN MOON?...
A silent swish of a cape. Then another. Two elongated shadows mirror one another as the liquid amber moon glows through a Tuscan forest. A single beam sets a stream of delicate ruby and ochre leaves ablaze, leaving the remaining, masked in velvety darkness.
The scent of a man and a woman mingle with the soft autumn breeze. Nostrils flair, igniting the creatures’ hunger. Their eyes shine with anticipation.
It will not be long. Midnight approaches.
The couple coo like two turtledoves as the man unlaces the bodice of his beautiful new bride. Their faces shift into the moonlight…
A voice rumbles through the forest, “C-Ciassssia!”
The woman gasps.
The man jumps to his feet, brandishing a knife.
Black clouds roll over the moon as the first figure takes flight and hovers above the ground, his dark hair and cloak billowing behind him. He lands with a resounding thump. His companion soon after.
The man attempts to stab his devilish twin, who laughs mirthlessly.
“Thou can not do me any harm, imposter.” The vampire slowly turns to look at the woman. “Hello my sweet bride.” He devours her with his eyes, then clears his throat and says, “From my grave I am forced to wander, seeking God’s long severed link. Still to love the bride I lost, and the lifeblood of her heart to drink.”
The woman shrieks.
He pulls her into his embrace. “Now that I found you again, I will never let you go!”
But will he?
What secret does Ciassia hold to save her life and the life of her husband?
Who is this mysterious vampire, longing for the love he once lost?
One can only find these answers UNDER THE TUSCAN MOON…
A debut novella by Denise Covey.

Here is a bit more information to wet your appetites.
Within the velvety Tuscan sky, a harvest moon glows like liquid amber. Mysterious shadows seep noxiously through the unsuspecting forest, preying on the vulnerable, whose blinded gaze mocks their senses.
A man. A woman. Forever locked in a sensual embrace.
A werewolf howls…
A cloak swishes…
Alabaster flesh waits to be torn.
Timing is everything in the Danse Macabre.
On this night the nectar of revenge is at its sweetest.
Just ask Vipunin…
“Who is Vipunin?” you ask.
A tormented soul, longing to recapture the life stolen from him a century ago. His wait is finally over. His love, Ciassia, has returned and she will be by his side for eternity…
Or so he thinks.
Through the sands of time, love, passion, and obsession is everlasting…even for the undead.
