If you like historical fiction and sexy vampires, you may be interested in her newest release Justine: Into The Blood (Blood and Passion Book 1).
Born in pre-Revolutionary France and orphaned as a child, Justine Bodeau is taken in by a family friend who employs her as a seamstress. Eventually, she winds up to work in the court of Queen Marie Antoinette.
A strong-willed survivor, defeat does not occur to her. When she fights off an attack by an aristocrat and kills him, she is given refuge but is soon betrayed and winds up on the streets of Paris, where she is attacked and killed by rogue vampires. But for whatever reason, love will not let her die.
Justine goes from wishing to be destroyed to wanting to survive, when she feels passion for the one who brought her back, Gascoyne — the one they call the Vampire Prince of Paris.
Since I'm interested in historical fiction and vampires, I thought this was an awesome idea and invited Carole for to share a little about herself and her book:

The House on Blackstone Moor, Book 1 in the acclaimed Blackstone Vampires Series

If you could be anything BUT a writer, what job would interest you?
What gets you in the mood to write?
Deadlines! Seriously, anything and everything.
When not writing what are you reading?
I read widely, good stories with great characters are what I like! I also enjoy doing research being the nerd that I am.
What is the message you want readers to take away from your latest book?
Vampires are complex beings. They love hate, feel passion and regret. They are haunted by the living lives they left behind. Their tales, as in Justine: Into the Blood are fraught with irony, the irony of fate and circumstance.
