Catherine Green Visits Vampire Review To Discuss Her Book: "The Darkness Of Love"

Vampire Review is happy to have Catherine Green, dark romance author from Spooky Mrs. Green guest blogging today. Welcome Catherine!

Gothic Victorian Vampires in The Darkness of Love
Dark Romance Author Catherine Green
by Catherine Green

Hello there my fellow vampire lovers and thank you, Tami Jackson, for hosting me over here on the Vampire Review. Today I would like to introduce my fourth novel, The Darkness of Love. It is a Gothic Victorian vampire romance full of decadent passion and deadly games. In other words, it's a perfect holiday read for the festive season! 

The Darkness of Love was inspired as I developed my series of novels set in the fictional Cornish seaside town of Redcliffe. In my debut novel Love Hurts (A Redcliffe Novel) I introduced a vampire character called Marcus Scott. In present-day Redcliffe, he is a charismatic, charming and drop-dead-gorgeous vampire/businessman who stirs up trouble for our fated heroine Jessica Stone. He was actually so charming that he persuaded me to write his own separate novel, and that became The Darkness of Love.

Our story is set in Victorian England, in the grand estate of Lord Gregory Stockton. Marcus Scott is a lowly stable hand, born and raised on the estate by his parents who also work for Lord Stockton. Marcus is sharp and intelligent, and he is battling a serious case of forbidden lust for Lady Sarah Stockton. 

The two young lovers begin a dangerous game, totally unaware that their lord and master not only knows about their illicit affair, but that he is a powerful vampire determined to use their emotions to his advantage. Marcus is a changed man by the end of his adventure, and it marks the start of a whole new immortal life, forever tied to his master.

Sounds hot doesn’t it? Well, Marcus Scott is very persuasive when he wants to be, and Lord Gregory Stockton is pretty hard to resist as well. 

Then we meet his old friend Lady Amelia Richmond and the whole story becomes even more twisted and dangerous. 

The Darkness of Love is a delicious foray into the era when England was undergoing huge social change, where people hid more secrets than anybody could begin to guess at, and where vampires could play and satiate their thirst wherever and whenever they chose.


Author of adult paranormal romance series The Redcliffe Novels, Catherine Green was raised on books from a young age, and has happy memories of Saturday mornings spent in her small local library, devouring the contents of the shelves. Aside from the Redcliffe novels, Catherine has short stories published in YA anthologies Devils, Demons and Werewolves, and The Mirador Fantasmagoria, and she writes articles for websites including Write and Share UK. Catherine is also a freelance copywriter and copy editor.

Catherine has always been fascinated by the supernatural world, and it feels natural for her to write about vampires, werewolves, witches and other mystical creatures in her stories. She is a shaman in training and a mother of two (that's before counting the dog). With an interest in crafts and social history, Catherine practices the Law of Attraction and truly believes that everyone can achieve their dreams if they can step beyond the fear of social conformity.
