Kryssie Fortune and the KNIGHTS VAMPIRE

 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.
01.01.2014   Start 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.
04.01.2014   Start 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?
05.01.0214   Cabbage 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.
08.01.2014             Switch to a low calorie diet. Failed.
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.
12.01.2014             Try fasting for a day. Failed. I couldn’t get past breakfast
13.01.2014             Start research paper on Whitborough Castle.
14.01.2014             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.
15.01.2014             Stay away from the university coffee shop. Failed  Their chocolate cake is to die for
16.01.2014             Tried 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.
