ONE WITH THE DARKNESS
Contessa Donnatella di Poliziano has power, beauty and —
as a vampire — eternal life. But she also consumed by regret that centuries ago
in ancient Rome, she failed to make her one true love, Jergan, a vampire too.
But just as she despairs, the discovery of a 300-year-old note leads her to a
gift left by her old friend, Leonardo da Vinci. He built her a machine to take
her back in time to re-write the history of her heart. .
back in time, Donnatella loses her memory of the intervening years. Yet when she
sees the breathtaking barbarian slave from afar, she feels she has always known
him. For Donnatella, their awakening passion feels both old and new. But as they
fall in love again, the danger of the emperor Caligula’s Rome threatens to tear
them apart. The very act of going back in time has changed history and sends events
spinning out of Donnatella’s control. Now Jergan’s love for Donnatella, and Jergan
himself, must survive the most perilous test, and if he fails, the two lovers
will be separated again… for eternity.
