Touched by Madness is a new novel by Nicole Leclerq.
I met Nicole when I taught Urban Fantasy & New York Novels in The Hague, The Netherlands several years ago.
“Stay here and I’ll consider you fair game.”
Even after years in an asylum, Erin constantly hears the voices of the dead. She resists their attempts to take over her body and must return to the place where they died. Returning to Hope Acres is the only way to break the spell that binds them to her and set them free.
But she is being hunted. Master vampire Dane Lynch, has never forgotten the little girl he saved and her return awakens a hunger in him. His dark and dangerous desires for her are something he cannot deny. As long as Erin remains in his territory, she is courting danger.
Caught in the crosshairs of an unscrupulous vampire, Erin faces a difficult choice, give up her chance to be normal or surrender to an ancient being more powerful than she could ever imagine.
