Steal Your Soul Away is a short paranormal story from Elizabeth Coldwell, and was first published in the Wild After Dark collection from Totally Bound Publishing.
This is the tale of Angelique, a two hundred year old vampire currently working in Brighton as a burlesque dancer. She’s always kept a distance from the people who come to see her show – that is, until she lays eyes on sculptor, Tom. Somehow, he’s different, and he intrigues her. His friend, Lucas, also piques her interest, but, being a werewolf, disgusts her at the same time. Particularly when she discovers that Tom doesn’t know his closest friend is a werewolf.
Against her usual self-imposed rules, she begins seeing Tom, doing her best to ignore Lucas’s presence. But when it becomes apparent that Tom knows there’s something between them, he tries to persuade Angelique that Lucas isn’t so bad, after all. But can the three of them put their differences aside and work something out?
I always enjoy Elizabeth Coldwell’s work, and this is no exception. It’s dark, dirty and intriguing, well-written and sexy, as always, and I’d definitely recommend it to fans of erotic paranormal tales.
