Deep in the cellars of Edgewood, a game of sexual bondage unleashes unexpected dangers, twisting open, loving Andre into a secretive virtuoso of manipulation.

Can Parker set aside forty years of bitter rivalry, or will he sacrifice Andre to save Claire?
Praise for Blood Gate
5 of 5 Stars! Surpassed My Expectations! An intense, riveting, hot, sexy read, Amy Burgess has become my favorite author in this genre. Her characters draw you in from the first chapter to the last. The unexpected and shocking twist partway through had me yelling out loud in disbelief! MORE, MORE, please! Raven Wolfsong
What if your lover, the one person you trusted most in the world, began to change and become secretive? Angry one minute, remorseful the next, and yet sometimes so wonderfully there that you fell in love with him all over?
This is Claire’s dilemma in Blood Gate. She and Andre worked so hard in the first book, Blood Gift, to bond together and to learn to trust.
Now that trust is shattering around them as a game of bondage in the cellars of an ancient English manor leads them on a twisted path to darkness.
Claire’s life is further complicated by Parker, her vampire master. She thought she knew who he was – a sardonic scoundrel who could not be trusted. Yet he is her most powerful and loyal ally in what’s happening with Andre.
Who can she trust? What secrets are hers to reveal? Where does she go at night when she dreams of stone corridors lit by torches and a beautiful woman in white?
Writing Blood Gate was both fun and scary. Fun in that I love the characters and I got to bring the three of them together in a tale of blood lust and passionate love, but scary because I had visit dark places with all of them. Especially Andre. His descent into darkness and possible insanity threatens everything he accomplished in Blood Gift.
I had readers of the series who loved him. Would they hate me casting him into the role of the villain? Or is he really the bad guy?
I had to go the opposite direction with Parker in Blood Gate. In Blood Gift he’s a basically unlikable guy. Gorgeous, sarcastic, manipulative as hell. He shows glimpses of possible depth, but nothing that redeems him in in the eyes of the reader.
But in Blood Gate he’s center stage. He all but steals the book away from Andre and Claire. He’s still gorgeous, sarcastic, and basically unlikable. But is he as manipulative and unlikable as you originally thought? Can he do anything to redeem himself?
Whether you are Team Andre or Team Parker, Blood Gate will show you sides of them both that are unexpected and dark. But is there light at the end of the tunnel? Only reading the book until the last page will answer that question.
