what do you get when two vampire universes collide?

The Vampire Song of Achilles. Does this make your heart beat faster? Read on.

A Conclave of Crimson

A Queer Vampire Tale
by Beverley Lee & Nicole Eigener

Elegant Achillean horror. Opulent detail. Scorching heat level.


Be ready. (You’ll never be ready).

Conflict is a familiar word to the seven vampires gathering in Vauquelin’s palatial Paris home. They have faced a multitude of threats, from supernatural and other sources, threats determined to cause havoc or snuff out their immortal lives.

Now they are gathered here to learn from each other. It is a time of reflection and harmony. But what if this time the conflict comes from within?

A dark, literary, sensual experience awaits in this explosive sequel to THE GABRIEL DAVENPORT Series by Beverley Lee, the BEGUILED BY NIGHT Series by Nicole Eigener, and CRIMSON IS THE NIGHT by both authors.
