Introducing Kryssie Fortune...
Hi, Kryssie Fortune here.
I’ve dropped back to tell you about Harriet Mortlake, heroine in my latest book KNIGHTS VAMPIRE. She’s the archivist at Whitborough castle. Even though she’s almost six feet tall, she’s around ten pounds overweight, and she hates it.
She was lucky to get such a prestigious job so soon after graduating. If the previous two archivists hadn’t vanished in unexplained circumstances, she might not have been so lucky. If she could just shake the someone’s-watching-me thing, life would be going great.
On the New Year’s Day before she graduated she started a diary….
Harriet Mortlake’s 2014 New Year’s diary.
a new diet. Failed
2.01.2014 Forget about men and aim for first class degree in Library science.
03.01.2014 Giggle with the girls in the dorm about the way I threw that creep out of my room. Honestly, he’s a jerk, but naked men are rare in the corridors of the university flats.
a low carbohydrate diet. Failed.
04.01.2014 Buy a new outfit for the seminar, and make as many contacts as possible. God, have I really gone up a size?
soup diet Failed. I mean, have you tasted the stuff?
06.01.2014 Almost signed up for a slimming club, but decided I can’t afford it.
07.01.2014 Read up on anger management. I will never follow in my father’s footsteps.
Switch to a low calorie diet.
09.01.2014 Visit Whitborough and explore its castle. Maybe enjoy fish and chips by the harbour.
10.01.2014 Learn to cook decent meals for one. I can’t live on chocolate, pasta and chips.
11.01.2014 Research past diets. Hey, that can’t be right. In the 1950’s did they really think swallowing a tapeworm would make you thin? I’m not even going to try that one.
Try fasting for a day. Failed. I couldn’t get past breakfast.
13.01.2014 Start research paper on Whitborough Castle.
Start a meal replacement plan.
Failed. Almost made it to dinnertime, but I’ve never been so hungry. I
shouldn’t have walked past the coffee shop.
Stay away from the university
coffee shop. Failed Their chocolate
cake is to die for
Lord Byron’s vinegar and water diet. Failed. I think I’m going to throw up.
17.01.2014 This is my last entry. Looking at all those failed diets is just too depressing. I need chocolate to cheer me up.
Wondering what happened to the previous archivists or if someone is really watching Harriet? Find out in KNIGHTS VAMPIRE.
Betrayed by the Knight Defenders and murdered by his cousin, crusader knight Blaxton de Ferrers rose as a vampire. For nine centuries, he’s preyed on the people he once swore to protect. Gradually, as his emotions leach out of him, he forgets how to feel. Then he meets Harriet.
Harriet Mortlake’s a strong sassy woman who battles her weight and her temper. Her job is to seek out the ancient secrets of the castle that was Blaxton’s childhood home. Instead, she finds the love of her life.
When danger threatens Harriet, Blaxton steps in. Harriet and Blaxton, are a match made in heaven. Except… he’s a vampire and to fully claim her, he’ll have to kill her.
