Book Three in the Night’s Vampire Trilogy
Night’s Return is the riveting conclusion of the Night’s Vampire Trilogy… With nowhere left to run, Virginia is praying for a saviour; however, the only one strong enough to save her and her children may be the very vampire she has been hiding from since she fled The House.
The Count Basarab Musat has returned to Brantford from Brasov where he was fighting against the dark forces trying to usurp his throne. Basarab has learned these forces are being led by Radu, Dracula’s estranged brother, and that Radu is after his children, Santan and Samara. He is desperate to reach them first because if Radu was to get hold of the children, all would be lost, including humanity.
Virginia finds herself back in The House where her nightmare began. She and Basarab become embroiled in their previous game playing; however, this time they aren’t the only players. Forces from all sides are fighting to keep them apart––Teresa, Basarab’s wife; Ildiko, his cousin; and Randy, the young man who is hopelessly in love with Virginia. Will love for their children, and possibly each other, be enough to bring Basarab and Virginia together at last?
