Description

It is 1810, and just as Jane Austen is penning her greatest masterpieces, old Undead friends become new neighbors and raise hell in her tranquil village. The Damned are out of favor and have been banished from polite society just in time to interrupt Jane's work and her peace of mind. Instead of writing, she has to deal with a niece who flirts dangerously with vampires, a formerly respectable spinster friend who discovers the joys of fornication with the Damned (and borrows Jane's precious silk stockings for her assignations), murderous creatures haunting the village's peaceful lanes, a civil war between the Damned, the return of her vampire characteristics, and a former lover who plans to blame her for his broken heart for all eternity. It's measuring up to be a busy year for the productive Jane.

Back cover copy

It is 1810, and the Damned are out of favor--banished from polite society. Jane Austen's old undead friends have become new neighbors, raising hell in her tranquil village just in time to interrupt Jane's work on what will be her masterpiece. Suddenly Jane's niece is flirting dangerously with vampires, and a formerly respectable spinster friend has discovered the forbidden joys of intimate congress with the Damned (and is borrowing Jane's precious silk stockings for her assignations). Writing is simply impossible now, with murderous creatures prowling the village's once-peaceful lanes. And with the return of her vampire characteristics, a civil war looming between factions of the Damned, and a former lover who intends to spend eternity blaming her for his broken heart, Jane is facing a very busy year indeed.
