Charleston Past Midnight: Christine Edwards begins a New Erotic Vampire Series Set in the South
Calla never believed in love, let alone vampires. That is about to change.
Charleston Past Midnight (208 pages), is a paranormal erotic romance about a young woman in Charleston who falls for a vampire with a conscience and battles an ancient, seemingly invincible evil.
How much fight does one woman have inside?
Calla Hart has never relied on anyone. The fierce West Virginian learned the hard way to be self-sufficient, that is until she is viciously attacked late one night by two thugs. Her luck turns when, still fighting for her life, she is rescued from her attackers by a preternaturally strong stranger. She is stunned to discover that Severin Beauvais is not your typical alpha male hero. Although her pre-med student mind vehemently resists the notion, Calla must soon accept that he is a vampire, one who has stalked the historic grounds of Charleston, South Carolina, since the mid-eighteenth century. Their desire for each other is intense, yet as much as she’d like to envision happily ever after with Severin, too much stands in their way. Aside from her fragile mortality, there is Severin’s extremely dominant personality coupled with his unending feud with the ancient Russian vampire Valdon, who has so far proved invincible. And Valdon has set his sights on Calla ….
When it comes down to the wire, what would you sacrifice for the love of your life?
Charleston Past Midnight is the first book in the Past Midnight series, which will continue with Savannah Past Midnight.
5 Smoking Guns (Brilliant): “Christine Edwards makes vampires wickedly sexy as only she can in Charleston Past Midnight! Severin Beauvais is the ultimate vampire hero with his dominant streak and barely controlled passion while Calla is his true equal with her strong determination and intelligence. Her story goes right for the jugular and only lets up to send you reeling once again. Then add Christine’s very own brand of blood and sex and I can’t imagine a better way to spend Halloween….” Read more….

“Charleston Past Midnight has some super sexy old-school vampires and an intriguing love story. I loved the supporting characters — Case, Kiana, Ambrose, and Alina. I would love to read stories with them as main characters in the future. I liked the support system that Severin and his family of vampires have — it helped lighten the mood at times. I look forward to reading more books in this series.” Read more ….

“Anyone who reads my blog posts and checks out the reviews I do would realize that I just love Christine Edwards’ books! Charleston Past Midnight was no exception…. Calla & Severin are just as hot as any of her other characters I have read. I also liked the fact that Severin was a tad bit vulnerable (yes, a vampire) in his feelings for Calla, again, something we don’t usually see in Christine Edwards stories. This book was another fantastic read and I hope to see some more from the secondary characters in the future!” Read more ….

Says Christine, “If you crave history and culture then Charleston, SC, is absolutely your go-to city. The charms of its architecturally diverse streets cloaked in mystery have drawn visitors from around the world for centuries. So I could think of no more perfect setting for my first paranormal romance. Narrow, cobblestoned streets coupled with vast, oak-lined plantations are a writer’s virtual playground. I’ve had the privilege of living in Charleston for a decade.”
Christine has published five other novels with Fanny Press: Claimed in Canada, Naughty in Norway, Nabbed in New Zealand, Captured in Croatia, and Nordic Lessons.
