Blood (Mercian (Quality - Trilogy) #1) (Paperback)
Will is a vampire in danger. Heir to the Earl of Mercia, he was brutally attacked and buried in the thirteenth century before he was able to assume his title.
Will has developed a routine. He leaves his tomb every so often, feeds his bloodlust, and never gets close to anyone. Until now. Waking from a twenty-year slumber, he meets Eloise--but can't bear to make her his next victim. Drawn to a girl he can never have, but whose fate seems bound with his own, he feels the need to protect her. But Will has an enemy who will stop at nothing to find him . . . and he's closing in. . . .
