Cast of Characters from Blood Gift
Seven vampires live within the London Circle. Allow me to introduce you to them!
Oliver: Master of the Circle, he lives in a huge, modern warehouse overlooking the Thames. He has thick, wavy dark hair and cognac-colored eyes. His power is immense compared to the other vampires in his Circle and he can heal within seconds. His power binds them together into a cohesive group. Oliver has waited two centuries for an Enhanced vampire like Claire to come to his Circle. He knows his vampires are flawed and troubled and wishes for them to be healed and whole. Claire can help effect this change, but only after she heals herself.
Parker: Premiere master in the Circle, he is Greek-god perfect with dark hair and electric blue eyes. American by birth, he came to London after World War II and ran across Oliver who thought he would make a good vampire in his Circle. Parker is cynical, manipulative, awesome in bed and selfish as hell. Master to Claire, he sets about disabusing her of her quaint notion that becoming a vampire is a new start which will wash away the stains of her abusive past.
Andre: Another master in the London Circle. Patient and passionate, he woos Claire slowly until she cannot resist him. Light brown hair, autumn dark eyes, he has a smile that transforms him from handsome to utterly gorgeous. He and Parker are arch rivals, but why? What happened between them to cause such friction?
Gareth: Happy go lucky, boy band good looks, long dark hair, brown eyes. Gareth is cheerful and friendly, but perhaps he has hidden depths that have yet to be explored? Fiercely devoted to his apprentice, Neal, Gareth is content to be who he is as he is. At least for now.
Ursula: Newest master in the London Circle, Ursula is a proud beauty with long black hair and light blue eyes. She is quixotic – friendly one moment, hostile the next. Cold on top, but smoldering beneath. When her secret past is revealed through Claire’s psychic powers, she reacts with rage. Has Claire made an enemy or can things be smoothed out between them? Only time will tell.
Neal: Apprenticed to his idol, Gareth, Neal seeks to emulate him in every way. He grows out his hair, wears the same style clothing, and is devoted. Blond hair, hazel eyes, tall and lanky, Neal is irresistible to both men and women. He has no real preference between genders, he just wants sex. And lots of it.
Claire: Yearning, yet apprehensive, Claire burns to belong. Unable to leave her past behind, she cannot move forward into the future. Andre is her key, but will she take his hand and allow him to show her the person she could be? Blonde haired and blue eyed, Claire is beautiful but she dislikes looking into mirrors because when she does, all she sees is her mother’s face. And her mother is the last person she wants to think about.

When Claire became a vampire, she hoped she could forget her abusive past. But her mentor, the sexy, perfect Parker destroys her dreams of a new start. Soon, Claire devotes her new found psychic powers to helping abused women.
Drawn to the mysterious and handsome Andre, another master in the London Circle and Parker’s archrival, Claire enters into a passionate clandestine affair which causes her powers to ramp out of control. Wild, sensual sex morphs into something deeper and, for Claire, terrifying. Andre soon discovers her abilities and realizes he is her trigger–the one vampire in the world who can help her control her spiraling powers.
Bonding with him requires Claire to trust and accept his love, two things she cannot bring herself to do. The gift of love is something her past won’t allow her to accept. Even so, Andre will have to reach her in time to save her life or stake her when her powers drive her insane.
