Book Blurb:
Edmund Fitz Clare has been keeping secrets he can't afford to expose. Not to the orphans he's adopted. Not to the lovely young woman he's been yearning after for years. This seeming professor of history has another life. He's an upyr—a shapeshifting vampire—determined to redeem past misdeeds.

Estelle Berenger knows better than to fall for her best friend's father. Yes, the professor is sexier than anyone else appears to notice—along with being brilliant, kind, and extremely eccentric! Estelle could overlook Edmund's peculiar allergy to the sun if this were his only oddity. Instead, he holds the key to a mystery of her own: that ever since she was struck by lightning, she's had abilities no normal woman should be able to call upon.
This star-crossed pair might be able to resist each other, but deep in the heart of London, a vampire war is brewing—a conflict that threatens to throw Edmund and Estelle together—and to turn Edmund's beloved human family against him.

Book Blurb:
For centuries he's hidden in the woods. Now a maid has come to lead him out...
It's been four centuries since Steinarr the Proud was cursed by a wicked sorceress—along with the rest of his Viking crew—to live for eternity as half man, half beast. By day Steinarr is like any other man—by night he is a lion. He has taken refuge in the woods of Nottinghamshire, England, and there he encounters two young travelers, Robin and Marian.
Painfully aware of the danger he presents when the moon rises, Steinarr initially refuses to help them search for the key to Robin's inheritance. Then a kiss from Marian awakens his desire. Driven to protect the maid he so desperately wants to possess, Steinarr joins their quest...while the sorceress Cwen gathers her dark magic to destroy them.
As a legend spreads of an outlaw in the woods, their band is joined by others. But it is Steinarr who has the most to gain and the most to lose—if he is ever to be free of the curse and free to love as a man...
