It’s been two months since Pandora English left her small hometown to live with her mysterious great-aunt in a haunted mansion in Spektor – the fog-wreathed suburb of Manhattan that doesn’t appear on any map.

With the help of her great-aunt and the beautiful – but dead – Lieutenant Luke, Pandora is beginning to understand the significance of the Lucasta family heritage her late mother kept secret from her. Pandora is heir to a great gift. And with that comes frightening responsibility…

Meanwhile, she seems doomed to be forever underestimated in the mortal world. Her fashion editor boss doesn’t seem to know she exists. But New York needs Pandora’s special gifts.

There is a new designer in town, and her ambitions extend far beyond taking over the fashion world one knit at a time…

The Blood Countess

I’ll admit that back in Gretchenville I dreamed I might one day ride in a real limousine. I never imagined, however, that my new boss would be in the trunk, or that I would be sitting in the back with a fourhundred- year-old murderess …

Pandora English is no ordinary small town orphan. When she’s invited to live with her mysterious Great-Aunt Celia in New York City, she seizes the opportunity to escape her stifling hometown, break from her tragic past and make it as a writer.

Things, however, are not what she is expecting. For starters, her great-aunt’s gothic mansion is in a mist-wreathed Manhattan suburb that doesn’t appear on maps. And then there’s Celia herself- a former designer to the stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age – who is elegant, unnaturally young and always wearing a veil.

Pandora lands a job at a fashion magazine and her first assignment is covering the A-list launch of the latest miracle cream, BloodofYouth. But something is not right about the product, nor Athanasia, the drop-dead beautiful face of the brand. It seems there may be a secret ingredient in BloodofYouth, a secret worth killing for…

Funny, sexy, fashionable and just a tiny bit terrifying, The Blood Countess – the first novel in bestselling author Tara Moss’ exciting new Pandora English series – is True Blood meets The Devil Wears Prada in high-fashion fantasy New York.
