Paranormal Romance

It’s 1927 and Lord Zoltan Kristos, Hungary’s Minister of the Interior, takes great pains to hide the fact he’s a werewolf from the world. Despite his efforts, he’s recognized when he goes to the Austrian-Hungarian border to inspect the area for damage from a recent rare earthquake.

Zoltan is accused of stealing Kurt Meklau’s witch, Inna, and is recklessly followed to Volturn Manor, a residence belonging to another werewolf family, the Vargas. After a fight with Meklau, Zoltan barely escapes and his adversary is found dead.

Sophia Varga and Tomas Martin find Zoltan. Sophia is determine to attend to Zoltan’s injuries and protect her home, but when Kurt’s father, Marcus, comes seeking revenge, Sophia is tested like never before. As Zoltan and Sophia work together, attraction and desire flame between them.

Will the secrets Volturn Manor harbors offer Zoltan and Sophia the clues they need to defeat Marcus and give them the opportunity to explore their feelings for one another?


Marcus sneered, then pointed at Zoltan. “He’s William’s get.”

Zoltan fisted his hand next to his body, his muscles tensing. He was face-to-face with

these disgusting man-wolves who he had nothing in common with.

Marcus gestured to his left. “My brother, Rufus.” He paused and motioned to his right.

“William. He enjoys leaving scars on his victims.”

“What do you do to your victims?” asked Zoltan, his voice cold, devoid of emotion.

“I made a few ‘gets’ before taking over from my father. I know who they are, but since

taking my father’s place, I kill my ‘gets’ now.”

“How gracious of you not to turn anyone else,” Zoltan spat.

“I am gracious. You’re an abomination. You live outside our rules. You’re an accident — a

product of my brother who can’t control his bloodlust.”

“He’s responsible for his own way.” William pointed at Zoltan. “He could have come to


“You left me for dead!” Zoltan retorted.

Marcus’ brother said nothing.

Marcus placed his hand on William’s shoulder, and his eyes narrowed into slits, glaring at

Zoltan. “You killed my son. My heir.” “He killed himself.”

“I hold you responsible for his death. Where’s the witch? His intended? Turn her over to me, and I’ll give you a quick death.”

“She made her choice. I have no intention of releasing her to you.”

“She was hand-picked by myself to marry my son. Since he is no longer living, she’ll marry me and give me a new heir.”


“I will destroy you, wolf.” Marcus’ voice was cold, hard. He paused. “I will take the witch–“

“You’ll do no such thing. Not while I’m here at Volturn Manor.” Sophia stepped forward with her hands clenched so tightly, her knuckles turned white. Zoltan admired her courage.

“Shut up!” Marcus took a quick step forward himself, but Sophia didn’t flinch. Her face glowered with rage.

“I’m the mistress of this manor, and those inside are under my protection.”

Zoltan’s heart soared with pride at Sophia’s strong stand before the intimidating wolf, but he readied himself to come between them if he had to. He hated the thought of Marcus getting close to her.

Thank you so much for having me here today! WHen it comes to the paranormal do you as a reader prefer vampires, werewolves, or witches?

My pleasure, Stephanie! Mmm, it would have to be vampires, and (I confess) of the Twilight ilk, LOL. Although, I did read some great werewolf shifter romances a while back, so I think it depends more on the quality than the type. I’m an eclectic reader and there’s little that I don’t like. Very best of luck with everything! 🙂
