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.
