The first book in an exciting new vampire series by Jenna Maclaine:
“My name is Cin. It’s an unusual nickname, one that always incites speculation about how I received it. Some say it’s because of the color of my hair, blood red and sinful. Others, the ones who whisper behind their hands, or cross the street rather than pass me on the sidewalk, say that it’s because of who I am, of what I am. Ah, what is that you ask? I am a witch… among other things.
“They are all wrong, of course, I remember well how I got the name, who gave it to me, and why. So long ago and yet sometimes it seems like only yesterday. I have been Cin for a great many years but I was not always her. Once I was young and sweet and innocent, just a girl with her whole life ahead of her.
“I was born Dulcinea Macgregor Craven. My mother called me Dulcie…”
Dulcie is the only child of a wealthy English viscount. She is also a natural witch, one of a long line of Macgregor witches on her mother’s side. When her parents are killed in a carriage accident, Dulcie doesn’t think her life can get much worse. Then an old childhood friend returns to the country a little bit differently than he left and vows that nothing will stop him from possessing her and her magic.
In a desperate attempt to save her life, Dulcie summons a trio of vampires called The Righteous to her aid. With the help of The Righteous and four human friends, Dulcie attempts to thwart her enemy’s plans to capture her and use her magic for his own evil purposes.
Even as she falls in love for the first time, Dulcie realizes that she may have to make the ultimate sacrifice in order to save the world.
