This paranormal adventure contains a sexy vampire, a famed serial killer, has strong romantic elements with HOT love scenes, and an ancient prophecy.
Being forced to choose a husband is the last thing Gemina Roland expected to do to survive. However, her beloved-yet-dying father won’t leave her a penny unless she marries. Gem can’t decide which man is worse to meet on the altar–-her controlling third-cousin, who is certain to leave her destitute, or the handsome, yet familiar, Broderick MacDougal, who is a stranger with promises that sound too good to be true. She is certain he must be setting her up, but should she take that chance anyway?
Broderick MacDougal’s continuing quest to seek revenge against his old clan enemy leads him into the Whitechapel District of seedy London…and into the benevolent arms of Gemina Roland. Protecting her from the notorious serial killer Jack the Ripper turns out to be the least of their problems. A marriage of convenience turns out to be a deadly trap for Broderick and Gemina is the bait!
Old clan wars and ancient grudges take a turn toward the unexpected and Broderick must do more than save Gemina from eternal damnation…he must finally admit to a truth he’s denied for almost four centuries.

A hundred years or so after Book 4 puts us in the mid-to-late 1800s, and being a huge fan of Riperology, I had to go there! The murders of the famed serial killer Jack the Ripper have always fascinated me and I’ve read a boat-load of books on him. No one knows who he really was…and I have a feeling we never will no matter what evidence may come to light. Everyone wants to be the one to solve the 100+ year-old mystery…and so anyone who presents their theory will have it shot down by the others who want to be the one to solve the puzzle. I think that’s a large part of the appeal to this unsolved crime…never knowing who did it.
Since Jack the Ripper cut the throats of his victims, I thought it a very fitting method for a vampire to hide his evil doings. Thereby spawning the idea for MIDNIGHT SAVIOR. I spent two-and-a-half years in England, living about 60 miles north of London in a small town called Yaxley…just outside of Peterborough. As such, I had plenty of time to explore the streets of London and take the Jack the Ripper tours of the Whitechapel area where the murders took place. Victorian London was very much like our society today: A large gap between the rich and the poor. However, back then it created a quite a dramatic dichotomy of environments. And it was a horrible time for a woman to live. Women were property, hardly had any rights, and the social rules and ettiquette of the day were some of the strictest in history. The perfect setting for putting a heroine in peril and at the mercy of her circumstances…and allow Broderick to come in and save the day.
