Now, I do want to say that when I wrote this story, it was my first story ever. I hadn't the concept for the Beautiful Creatures world, yet, but later, as I wrote my paranormal romance, I stuck with some of the original concepts I'd used in Dark Rapture. Because I know the hero, Sebastian DelaCourte does exist in my current incarnation of the world. I may have slightly altered a few of the vampiric traits in the newer books, but that was because my idea of the world is and was evolving. As well, my writing as grown since this first novel was published in 1997. I hope you understand that as you read, and I hope you'll agree that I have improved!
The second book, Wicked Angels, is a true sequel, so I suggest you read Dark Rapture first. WA picks up a year after Sebastian and Scarlet have found one another, and isn't as much a 'first meet fall in love' romance as 'this is how they continued on in their lives' story.
So go to your favorite online retailer and check out these two stories! They won't stay free for too long. (Just a warning.)
