VEIN GLORIOUS - THE SPICY VERSION
A Beauty. A Werewolf. A Vampire.
A spicy fantasy paranormal romance of Beauty and the Beast...with vampires and a werewolf.
The Beauty...is a spinster who is about to marry her childhood nemesis, a man with a plan.
The Beast...is the lord of the land, a werewolf with a longtime thing for Beauty. And vice versa.
The Vampire…is a cruel dressmaker, a jewel thief, and a bloodsucker.
The place is Darkland, a northern land full of superstitious, gossipy people who are stuck in a fairy-tale era where the sun doesn’t rise for long months of the year...and that’s just the way the vampire likes it.
This re-imagined Beauty and the Beast story unfolds into a fairy tale that is a comedy of errors, madcap misunderstandings, jewel thievery, lies, betrayal, a missing body, and above all, the desperate pursuit of true love.
When a spinster agrees to marry her longtime rake frenemy to save his parents’ estate and provide him with an heir, things take an unexpected turn when she learns that her betrothed has failed to pay the bridal tax to the lord of their land.
In turn, the lord of the land asserts his claim to the bride’s favors on her wedding night! Ironically, she’s been in love with him for years, but he's a recluse who hasn’t been seen in a long time. The bride’s wedding night with the lord of the land, instead of with her groom, will be…interesting…to say the least.
The heroine is a witty, clever Beauty who crosses paths with a vengeful vampire and a romantic beastly werewolf in a surprising tale. There’s a groom with a stunning secret, loving sisters, a cruel dressmaker, and a vampire-hunting vicar accompanied by a light-fingered torch mob.
There are nods to other fairy tales remixed into this rollicking, madcap romance mashup.
With more clichés than a Shakespearian farce and a parody of fairy tale tropes thrown in for good measure, I hope you enjoy this steamy, spicy, rollicking noir fairy tale of true blood and revamped plotlines.
Thereby, sprang a tale…
