Don’t stir up the past.
Especially when that past is an ancient, feral vampire sleeping at the bottom of an aged cobblestone well, one who is famished for blood, determined to claim you, and haunted by mystical shadows…remnants from the past.
Long ago, in a Romanian castle, the last females of a dying race called him Nanaşule. Godfather. One who wields the powers of the gods, yet behaves as Father, one who is both respected and beloved…at least before the Blood Curse.
One who hails from a long line of powerful mages who served the monarchy faithfully.
But something is different about Fabian Antonescu. He is haunted by visions of a golden hawk and a copper-eyed raven—cryptic vials of blood—and he will do anything to remain one step ahead of his memories. For the secrets shrouded in the fog could change everything.
Gwendolyn Hamilton, as strong as she is, has already survived the unthinkable. She didn’t ask to be thrust into a predatory world of vampires, warriors, and ancient mages. She didn’t ask to be taken by Fabian.
Yet one touch of a stone, one electrical current, one fateful moment when a vampire’s eyes met hers were more than enough to set off an explosion — and cause a thunderous BLOOD ECHO.
If she hopes to survive, she must answer back…
To the call of the wild ~ to a savage vampire.
To the demands of antiquity in a modern world.
To the threat and promise of a looming Blood Moon ~ and the destiny that awaits her.
Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado, where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her master’s degree in nonprofit management.
Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker’s box full of short-stories and novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. Her Dark Fantasy/Gothic Romance novels represent her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her passionate flair for storytelling.
Eighteen books later, Tessa now has readers in over 100 countries, and her novels have reached #1 bestselling status, eighteen times, appearing on 59 bestseller lists in 47 different categories. Her personal author-ranking has climbed to #2 in Horror and #11 in both Fantasy and Paranormal, placing her on the Amazon “Bestselling Author” charts next to three of her favorite authors: Stephen King, J. R. R. Tolkien, and Sherrilyn Kenyon.
Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains, but she hopes to one day move to the country where she can own horses and what she considers “the most beautiful creature ever created” -- a German Shepherd Dog.
As of 2019, she is a member of NINC; SFWA; and RWA(PAN).
Writing is her bliss.
