Book
The Comte de Saint-Germain is living in relative peace and prosperity in the village of Orgon in fourteenth-century France. He has won a grudging acceptance from the local populace, who are uneasy with his strange and foreign ways but appreciative of his generosity. But a new threat has upset the precarious balance: Plague has come to France, and the people's fear turns to xenophobia. To avoid the scrutiny that could reveal his true nature, Saint-Germain must flee. However, his travels drive him deeper into the heart of the Black Death--and danger.

Praise for Blood Roses

"Chelsea Quinn Yarbro's 'Saint-Germain' novels are probably the best series of vampire novels ever written." --The Hartford Courant

"Yarbro re-creates in lavish detail one of history's darkest and least understood periods. [A] well-researched, sumptuously written tale of honor and compassion in the midst of death of superstition."--Library Journal
