Midnight Conquest Publisher's Summary
Stewart Glen, Scotland - 1514
Masked in a Gypsy guise, Broderick MacDougal hides his vampiric identity while seeking to destroy the man who slaughtered his family. When an old Clan rival ensnares Broderick in a trap using an enticing widow, he is compelled to discover if she is bait or an accomplice, and the cinnamon-haired beauty is his next conquest.
Widow of an abusive husband, Davina Stewart-Russell clings to the only image that gave her strength during those dark times - the Gypsy rogue who stole her heart as a youth. After nine years, she is finally face-to-face with him again, but reality clashes with fantasy as she is confronted with Broderick's passionate pursuit.
When Davina's past returns to haunt her, Broderick is forced to reveal a dark secret worse than anything Davina thought possible. The challenge before them has fatal risks and neither of them is prepared for the sacrifices expected for the sake of eternal love.
Listener Advisory: The abridged version of Midnight Conquest still includes all the original storyline details, action and nail-biting scenes of violence and domestic abuse. (Don't worry...the bad guys get it in the end!). However, the love scenes have been edited and are no longer described in graphic and direct language, in order to appeal to a wider audience. As such, there are no more "glistening folds" details. (Collective groan of disappointment ensues...) Though this story can be enjoyed by listeners slightly younger than 18, parental discretion is still advised.
