The Vampire Covenants Book One: Breaking the Covenants

Oh, I know you guys have been waiting for this! The book trailer is out for Breaking the Covenants, the first book of The Vampire Covenants trilogy that Rob Graham and I are writing together-coming from Aspen Mountain Press in April, 2009.

Here's the blurb:

The German vampire Gunther von Wittersheim has a problem: he’s fallen in love with a mortal woman, the English beauty Lady Marguerite Giffard, and his greatest immortal enemy, the French Comte Alphonse de Brunel, knows about it. When de Brunel captures Marguerite and turns her into a vampire, Gunther must put aside his desire for revenge and help his beloved through the painful transition to immortality.

Vampires are bound by the Covenants, a code of law enforced by the mysterious Conclave of Elders. The couple is ordered by the powerful Elder of Paris to bring de Brunel to the Conclave to answer for trial. The lovers pursue their foe to St. Petersburg, where they are caught in a power struggle between factions of warring vampires. Can they find a way to capture Alphonse de Brunel before the factions go to war? Or will their love fall prey to the breaking of the Covenants?

And here's the trailer. Enjoy!
