Fledgling vampire Prudence Hightower feels her humanity slowly slipping away. The only thing that can save her is love. Not the tainted love offered by Nicolae, the vampire lover who forced his dark gift upon her, but the love of a mortal man—the pirate Stede Bonham. But Stede’s happy-go-lucky nature hides a dangerous secret that threatens to destroy Pru’s faith in love as surely as her mortality was destroyed by Nicolae.
Without her, Nicolae endures life. With her, he can embrace it—if only she would forgive him for turning her into the undead. He aches for redemption and deliverance, but will not find it without her love.
As the French tricolor is lowered in New Orleans and tempers flare between old world Creoles and brash Americans, the key to reclaiming Pru’s lost soul lies with an ancient witch inhabiting the body of a powerful voodoo queen. Can Pru trick the witch into chanting the spell that will restore her soul? Will a voodoo love potion win Stede’s love? From the mud-filled streets of New Orleans, to the steamy bayous throbbing with voodoo ceremonies, to the pirate stronghold of Barataria, Pru follows a tempestuous path into the heart of darkness.
