Marin Rose is both a spinster and governess to her wealthy sister's children. Her willfulness and fiery temper often put her at odds with most of mid 1840's English society. After a series of troubling events occur, the new and handsome young doctor in the neighborhood provides an answer for her in the prospect of marriage. However, a chance encounter with a creature from her childhood could cost her everything. A dastardly fiend with the face of an angel and a taste for blood, he will stop at nothing to ruin her life. Trapped between light and dark, she must find a way to protect not only those she loves, but her own sanity as well.

Amanda Alexander was born 1988 in Murphysboro, Illinois where she lived most of her life. Never one to read or write much of anything, she picked up the book Interview with a Vampire by author Anne Rice in the seventh grade. Her love of books, writing, and the supernatural grew from there.

She graduated from John A. Logan College and Southern Illinois University Carbondale with degrees in art. Despite this, her greatest love (and obsession) remains in the written word. She now lives in Ormond Beach, Florida where she writes and does oil paintings on commission.
