150 years ago, Angelina Dioli was cursed as a vampiress, thrust into a life she didn’t want or deserve. Drifting from Europe to the United States, she followed bloody wars to sustain her thirst. Her quiet presence can be seen upon each battlefield but goes undetected. Her loneliness and misery deepens as she retreats further into herself, disgusted by her dangerous nature.
Living in the 1860s, Captain Dante Rustici carries a dark secret into battle…a haunting sin from his childhood. Upon a Civil War battlefield, death covers him and hope vanishes along with the gunsmoke. Mortally wounded, he prepares to die. Then an angel of the night discovers him. His true adventure begins at last, one which could lead toward either his ultimate death or happy future. His fate lies in the hands of a beautiful, mysterious savior.
Can our Angelina help a wounded soldier face his tragic, guilt-ridden past? Will she destroy him instead? Will he love her in return? Will his love be enough to break her curse?
Join them on this journey of love, passion and adventure! Watch as two hearts bleed for lost childhoods and yearn for a day when their pasts can be laid to rest. Peace is an elusive creature but perhaps not unattainable…only time will be the judge.
