Publisher's Summary

April 19, 1836
I'm writing this in the corner of the room with trembling hands. The candle long since burned out, and I sit in darkness, yet I can see perfectly. I wanted to believe this was some parlor trick, that the man who found me was merely a magician or a doctor, but I'm unable to refute it any longer.
My name is Peter James Monroe, and I am a vampyre.

In My Blood Approves, Peter Townsend fell in love with Alice Bonham, but she wasn't his first love. In a new novella told through his letters, his history is revealed.

A Stunning Prologue To The Series (Spoilers)

What did you love best about Letters to Elise: A Peter Townsend Novella (My Blood Approves)?

I finally feel like I know this character, Peter. In the books that chronologically follow - the story of Alice and his brother (who he made), Jack. he comes across and angry, mean and agonized. In this book his humanity finally breathes.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Peter is the protagonist and I like him because he always acted with the best intention, but I'd favourite Elise. She is his first love, his friend and confidante beyond the grave, in many ways his moral compass.

What about Hannah Friedman’s performance did you like?

I only gave 4 stars because I was hoping for a male narration. She did an excellent job.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I think my eyes got wet once or twice, when he went home to a dead Elise and when he spoke of Alice. If you're a hopeless romantic, you'll love this book.

Any additional comments?

I would like to read the entire Blood Approves story in Peter's words. As a more 'mature' reader his perspective is mature and refreshing. Hocking's prose finally flows fluidly when she writes in his character's words. He is her muse.
