It is not romantic. It is not remotely nice. It is not Twilight.
Here's the blurb:
Maybe you’ll be lucky. Maybe he’s not human. He’ll take you in his arms and you’ll feel his strength - a strength that makes it impossible to fight him. But you’ve already lost the will to resist, that moment he looked into your eyes and showed you all his hunger and his promise. You knew then. You knew that this is what you are for – what we are all for - with our warm beating hearts and our aching sexual needs.
We are for them.
There are six vampires in the city. Ageless, terrifyingly beautiful and always hungry – not just for blood but for the other pleasures the human body offers. Sadistic chanteuse Estelle; feckless Ben; Roisin, the mirror-ghost; Wakefield, haunted by his own damnation; Naylor, the most feral of them all.
And Reynauld is the Good Shepherd, the one who holds them all in check. But his grip on his own humanity is fading, and when Wakefield accidentally kills a woman and Naylor gets the blame, a power-struggle erupts between the city’s immortal undead.
Red Grow the Roses tells of bloodlust and sexual desire; for vampires the two are indistinguishable. These transgressive, startling stories draw the reader down the darkest and most seductive paths of pleasure - to where the monsters are waiting.
Red Grow the Roses is a novel told in series of linked short stories. It's full-on erotica with (count the symbols down the cover!) tales covering group sex, fem-sub, fem-dom, bondage and whipping. (Something for everyone, eh?) There's pain, and there's blood, of course. There's love too, but it's rarely the healthy sort.
And nobody sparkles.
Red Grow the Roses is out in Kindle format on 7th February, from brand new publisher Mischief. You're going to be hearing a lot more from them in the near future too!
