When Montreal vampire Emmeline Dubois regains her lost soul in a spell gone wrong, she embarks on an arduous journey toward her redemption.

If you love loyal tough guys with hearts, satisfying slow-burn paranormal romance and safe Happily Ever Afters, the Black Oak World is for you.
She was ready to leave.
Seeing her like that the previous day, with the satchel full of clothes dangling from her hand, had been like a sucker punch to Justin’s gut.
And everything that could go wrong if she left Chateau Briac on her own had passed before his eyes in that one moment.
She’d be crippled by guilt and unable to feed. Unwilling to face Father Grégoire, she’d have no way to get the synth blood keeping her alive.
Alone. In the city. Lost into her anguish.
And once all the herbs had been used—because, of course, he would have given her all he had—she might turn so tormented that she would want to end it all. And unlike Val, it would be easy for her. Step outside on a bright day and remove the ring.
That daylight ring hadn’t been easy to acquire. He had broken many of his rules that day, when he’d forcibly taken it from a burglar of magical artifacts passing through the French village where he’d attended a monk retreat for a few years.
But it had been worth it, for her. And if she chose to remove it, after all these centuries since he’d slid the enchanted topaz on her finger, she would be gone.
Just like that. In almost an instant. Embers scattered in the wind.
