Even cursed blood can fall prey to love’s bite.

Kenton Morley and Lawrence Derrickson have hated each other since they were feuding border lords in medieval England and Scotland…seven hundred years ago.

When their bloodlines were cursed, birthing the world’s first vampires.

Their feud has carried through the centuries based on an old argument: Kenton seeks to destroy the Cheld—the only line of humans capable of killing their kind—while Lawrence seeks to save them.

It’s said that men can forget, but never forgive. It’s also said that true love knows no bounds.

When the vampires move to Stone Haven, Pennsylvania, Alessandra Fiore will find out firsthand which of those old adages is true.

It doesn’t matter whether she believes in vampires or not…

Because they believe in her. And she’s on the very cusp of discovering her dormant powers as a Cheld—a potential vampire hunter.

With both of these strangely wealthy newcomers’ storming into her sleepy, peaceful town, warning her to stay away from the other, what is a girl to do? 

Especially when Kenton—the one that supposedly wants to kill her—has a devilish twinkle in his eyes that she just can’t say no to?

No matter how dangerous she instinctively knows both men to be, strengths and powers of her own are beginning to bubble to the surface, encouraging her that she can take care of herself, thank you very much.

Love and Hate—two sides of the same coin. Literally.

The only thing left to do is flip that coin and hope for the best…to see which old saying is true. And how many innocents bet the wrong way.

Love and Hate- two sides of the same coin

When sitting down to write the first book in the Bloodwite series, I had a choice to make.

I knew it would be about two 700-year old vampires, one English and one Scottish, who spent centuries hating each other, coming to a small Pennsylvania town. I knew one would be there to help Alessandra Fiore, our heroine, as she came into abilities that could turn her into a vampire hunter. The other man/vampire, not so keen on helping out a potential threat, would be there to kill her.

What I didn’t know was which vampire Alessandra would fall in love with. Lawerence Derrickson, after all, is quite a catch. A Scottish clan chief when he was turned into a vampire back in the 13th century, he is both kind and strong. A warrior. A protector. And mega hot, of course. On the other hand, Kenton Morley, once an English earl, was his rival’s opposite. Ruthless. Borderline cocky. And he’s travelled to Stove Haven to kill Alessandra.
Being hunted down by your potential mate tends to hamper a relationship.

So which did I decide to make the hero of THE VAMPIRE’S TEMPTATION? Why, Kenton, of course. Because even though the two hate each other at the start of the book, funny things happen in life, and in a romance novel, when two people are forced to look inside the soul of the other. Just one glimpse is enough to plant the seeds of doubt.

I won’t spoil the ending, but it is a romance novel after all. And the first book in a brand new paranormal series called Bloodwite, a medieval term for blood debt which hints at the reason why our two vampires hate each other in the first place.

Love and hate—two sides of the same coin. Read THE VAMPIRE’S TEMPTATION to find out how it’s possible to fall for the man who is trying to kill you. Stranger things have happened, and they do in Stone Haven, Pennsylvania when two vampires come to town.

About the author:
Cecelia Mecca is the author of steamy historical and paranormal romance that transports readers to another time and place. 

Every heroine, from Lady Sara in the Border Series to Alessandra Fiore in Bloodwite, is your best friend– the one who kicks ass and takes names. When these ladies meet alpha-males who try to take control, sparks fly until the very last page. 

Cecelia writes the bestselling Border Series which takes readers to an admittedly romanticized time of knights and castles in 13th century Northumbria along the Anglo-Scottish border. She’s also currently jumping into a new world which tests the patience of even the most steadfast romance heroine. After all, dealing with the ultimate bad boys– sexy, wealthy and swoon-worthy vampires– is not for the faint of heart. 

Our Highlander-loving, vampire-writing author can be found in Northeast, Pennsylvania, chai in hand, thinking up new ways to tame both medieval and paranormal playboys. She is firmly House Stark and Gryffindor.
