VAMPIRES IN VENICE
A few weeks ago, an interesting story hit the Internet. Archeologists unearthed a skeleton from a mass grave near Venice that was apparently feared to be a vampire. The female skeleton, most likely a plague victim from the Middle Ages, had a large brick wedged in her mouth. This brick was meant to keep her from feeding on her grave companions and gaining the strength to rise from the grave. Here was actual proof that people in the Middle Ages believed vampires were real.
I found the story particularly interesting because my curren book which released March 31st features a vampire from where? You guessed it. Venice! The hero from Secret Life of a Vampire is Jack, aka Giacomo di Venezia. Jack is a man of many secrets—not only is he a vampire, but he’s also the illegitimate son of the legendary lover, Giacomo Casanova. Jack’s problems begin when a beautiful police officer, Lara Boucher, decides to prove her skills as a detective by uncovering Jack’s secrets.
Jack does his best to keep his secrets safe, but that’s hard to do when he’s falling in love. Will Jack prove to be a legendary lover like his infamous father? You can find out more about Secret Life of a Vampire by reading the excerpt or watching the book video at my website, www.kerrelynsparks.com.
Jack’s flirting with disaster as he attempts to court Lara and keep his secrets at the same time. At one point in the book, he takes Lara on a romantic date in Venice. If you could go anywhere in the world on a romantic date, where would you go?
