Beneath an Empty Moon~
On this night I awoke, emptiness flooding my heart. The years have grown quite lonely—once again. Existing as one of the un-dead has become tiresome. Nearly 300yrs I have walked this earth—single-handedly. For I cannot remain in the places I call home for eternity. The risk of my secret being discovered—I can never allow. So I ask myself? Is eternal life—worth the loss plaguing my soul? And the answer is always the same—yes—the innocent humans need my protection. For they warrant a life without fear of a monster draining the very fluid they need to survive. If only the hunt still excited me—yet it does not. For I need very little substance to survive. As my creator explained would happen in time…
Kara… I do miss the stunning vampire. Secrets revealed she has taken a human lover—one capable of severing the barrier protecting her heart. This knowledge pained me deep with-in—yet I cannot understand why. Even though we pleasured one-another over the years—both knew the attraction was purely physical.
Accepting our relationship could not be more was difficult at times. Existing as one of the un-dead has its disadvantages. For once a vampire claims your soul—they shall live with-in you—forever. Knowing your every thought—your every desire—your need to feel complete. I ask myself. Is it possible—I—Lucian Monroe to experience such completeness?
Suddenly, I recall a night—so many lives changed. Nearly 15yrs passed—and Tristen will not forgive my deceit. I prayed in time—his anger would lessen toward me. Nevertheless, it has not. So once again, I contemplate. What does one as I—an immortal need to fill this void with-in? However—nothing plagues my thoughts. I glance at the moon-lit sky and curse. For deep with-in I finally found the answer I seek. If I could feel naught—truly exist without a care—I would be complete…
Look for Tristen’s story in my next spellbinding novel~

For he failed to keep his promise—her death haunting him… ripping apart his soul.
For 200yrs—emotionally the vampire has battled the beast with-in—wanting to end his existence.
Cursing his wife’s dying words—
“Tristen… you must carry on—promise me you will protect the innocent…”
Her dying words forever—embedded in his mind…
Unable to bear her loss—any longer… he plans his demise…
While the vampire rests under the moon-lit sky awaiting the rising sun…
A panic-stricken voice invades his thoughts.
Pleading for his help…pleading he save her from the soulless monster—
An ancient vampire~ the good of his kind believed no-longer of this world…
At the age of 17 a monster existing to inflict pain—emotionally destroyed her.
Ripping apart her inner-self—subconsciously tormenting her mind night after night.
For she will always live in fear—as darkness covers the earth…
That night an institution… for the mentally in-sane—became Ana’s home.
10yrs… she has lived hidden from the being. Now… once again the creature—has found her.
Knowing deep with-in—this time—the monster tormenting her thoughts will not stop until it owns her soul.
Mentally she cries out—not understanding—yet believing the one …
With emotionless eyes—possesses the power to save her.
