Marquis Silivasi is an Ancient Master Warrior in the arcane house of Jadon: a clan of lethal vampires living in the Rocky Mountains. Known to be harsh, unyielding, and socially inept, he and his iron core yield to only one person—his destiny, Ciopori Demir.
The beautiful, ancient princess can bend Marquis’s will—and melt the vampire’s heart—with nothing more than a crook of her finger. She owns the keys to his soul. Only this year, at Christmas, she has gone too far…
She has meddled in vampire-human affairs.
She has plotted behind Marquis’s back.
And she has disturbed his fragile peace by offering to host a Christmas Eve Gala at the couple’s private estate, which is secluded for a reason…
It is time to teach the female a lesson—Marquis is still the master of his domain!
A serene, picturesque valley surrounded by snowcapped mountains; an internal family squabble, boiling to the surface; and a Christmas Eve feast, hosted by creatures of the night who don’t eat, can’t cook, and rarely socialize with humans…
What could go wrong?
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. Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains with her husband, two children, and "one very crazy cat." 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. Writing is her bliss.

Julien Lacusta is a troubled soul, born into tragic circumstances, and raised in a violent time. Despite being a Master Warrior in the house of Jadon, and one of the most elite trackers the Vampyr have ever seen, he is damaged to the core: tormented by endless shadows, haunted by unseen ghosts.

The very earth will suffer.
Rebecca Johnston is fighting hellhounds of her own: a stalker who won’t let her go, an enemy she cannot defeat, a life that is no longer safe…or free. When she ventures into Dark Moon Vale to raise funds for a worthy cause, she has no idea that she is knocking on the door of fate. She has no idea that an ancient Blood Moon and an inescapable dark Curse are about to change her life.
Caught in a web of ever-increasing danger, the machinations of an ancient foe, and a burgeoning house of lies, Julien and Rebecca must summon their courage, face their fears head-on, and fight their way through the chemical allure of BLOOD ECSTASY.
In the decades since an innocent human slave was taken to Castle Dragon, against her will, for the sole purpose of bearing a son for the monarchy, much has changed in the Realm: Alliances made in secret have flourished; sons born of veiled paternity have grown to adulthood; and dangerous warlocks, seasoned witches, and cunning shades have risen to powerful positions.
Yet all is not as it seems.
Beneath the shadow of an eerie double moon, a dark, tormented evil is rising…
A prophecy is beckoning: “It is time. It is time.” And a lethal dragon prince is growing restless to seize the throne of his bestial ancestors.
King Demitri will never step aside.
Mina Louvet—indeed, all the Sklavos Ahavi are caught between worlds.
And the web of lies spun by the eldest dragon prince—the treachery, deception, and perversion—may very well spark a war of fire and fury unlike anything the Realm has ever seen—or hoped to survive.
Great reward requires greater risk, and every beating heart will be wagered in this high-stakes game of blood and reckoning.
