Publisher's Summary

Willowwind is a lovely Civil War era bed and breakfast that sits on a hill above an ancient cemetery filled with Civil war graves and strange stone sculptures made long ago by a woman once feared to be a witch - perhaps once murdered by the townspeople for being one.
Willowwind is run by a loving couple, Adrian and Caroline Stone, and welcomes guests every weekend.
But since Caroline's beloved father, Edward Winter, died and was buried in that cemetery, Willowwind is also haunted. Haunted by a long dead Civil War era vampiress, Lilith, who believes the man, Adrian, is her reincarnated soldier/lover and will do anything to have him, body-heart-and soul, for her own again, no matter how many she must kill to have him. But Adrian's wife, Caroline, along with the help of the ghost of her dead father, will do anything to make sure that doesn't happen.

Horror, Vampires, Ghosts, and a witch--enjoy!

A bed and breakfast with a Civil War cemetery haunted by a vampire/witch who is out of her time. Story moves along smoothly and characters are clear and strong. One might also call it a historical romance with a chilling twist!
BLA is an audio performer who shows his ability to delineate the characters well.

Didn't care for the narration

I thought this was a good book, but I think that listening to the audio hampered my enjoyment a bit. I listened to the Audible audio version, but I had a hard time with the narrator because he sounded very stilted (almost robotic), all the female characters sounded the same, and his pronunciation of words like "escape" as "excape" bugged me. I don't I think I will actively search out books by this narrator again. The story itself sounded really interested. There were ghosts, magic, and vampires. I like the idea of a civil war vampire feeding on entire battlefields, but falling in love, trying to change herself, and that love surviving the ages. It has the makings of a good story, but I just couldn't enjoy it as much with the narration. Maybe I'll give it another try on my Kindle.
