When the vampire Lucardo fell in love with Edmund Fiedler, a 61-year-old mortal scrivener, their passion became legendary before Lucardo’s practical father intervened. The royal Court of Night has gone back to its peaceful reign, Ed has exiled himself, and Lucardo . . . well, Lucardo is hopelessly enraged. Determined to seize control of his life again, Lucardo mounts a search for his missing lover, sparking a new flame that -- this time -- threatens to consume them both.
An erotic graphic novel that redefines a genre, Fortunate Beasts continues the immortal romance begun with Letters for Lucardo in a paranormal tale of fighting back against fear for love.
Patience is a kindhearted country girl, eking out a living in Edwardian England as tremors of social change rock the world around her. When she starts her employment in formal service on the grounds of an opulent country manor, she has no idea that her own personal revolution is about to begin.
Selfless, dutiful, and just a touch naive, she takes to both her place as a parlor maid and to her new roommate, the bookish and progressive lady’s maid, Esther. In another time, the two women would have kept one another’s company forever in their little attic bedroom, living out their days in the employ of a Lord. But it’s now the dawn of a new age. The expanding empire has brought with it not only plundered wealth, but worldliness and new ideas. Suffragists agitate in the street, idle-rich bohemians challenge sexual mores, and Patience and Esther slowly come to realize the world is wider and full of more adventure and opportunity than they ever imagined . . . so long as they find the will to seize it.
Sensual, sweet, and beautifully illustrated, PATIENCE & ESTHER is a steamy period romance and an inspirational erotic journey across the epic sweep of history, from the end of a gilded age to the start of an uncharted future.
