The Nocturne Bride
The vampire Lord Isur seeks a very special woman to be his bride: a woman who stirs his most base, mortal lust. A woman that reminds his body it was once alive.
Under normal circumstances, Elani Naeuri would have been delighted to receive an invitation to an aristocrat's ball. But for the fifty women chosen to be Nocturne Brides, the ball is not a night for dancing and wine. The rumors of what actually transpires are so scandalous, so wanton, that the invitation is a fate worse than death.
