It’s ALIVE! And a New Release!

by Nancy Gideon

Some of my favorite movies growing up were those horror flicks about rebirth and resurrection. Frankenstein’s monster finding new life with not all original parts. Dracula rising up from the grave. The Mummy’s tomb opening to release him (especially if Brendan Fraser and Arnold Vosloo were involved!). Reissuing my Touched by Midnight series is kinda like that.

The first three books of the series were written over fifteen years ago when the vampire romance genre was a new creature just clawing its way to popularity. The idea was so new, my books were often mistakenly placed in horror! After their brief and unfulfilling life span of two weeks on the shelves, the books were stripped and buried.

But you can’t keep a good vampire romance hero down!

Readers wanted more. Though the first three books were impossible to find (in this day prior to e-books and Amazon!), ImaJinn Books, a small press newly created to serve the needs of paranormal lovers, allowed me to continue the series with six more books, weaving the familiar heroes and villains in and out through three centuries. And for fifteen years, I struggled to resurrect those first three books by getting the rights back. And finally, thanks to ImaJinn Books, they’re alive again!

For the next nine months (easiest labor ever!) ImaJinn, now an imprint of BelleBooks, is rereleasing all nine books of the Touched by Midnight series, a book per month, starting with MIDNIGHT KISS with all new covers to transport an all new generation of readers from Regency England, to post-Revolution France, to Turn-of-the-Century New York and New Orleans, the Roaring ‘20s, to high tech research labs and the jungle of Peru with characters who refused to go quietly. Rumors of their death were greatly exaggerated . . . thank goodness!

Sink your teeth in and enjoy!

Hunt or be hunted . . . A centuries old obsession stalks a noble family fighting to hide their dark secret from an ever-changing world. Sink your teeth into Nancy Gideon's Touched by Midnight series.


Miss Arabella Howland is content forgo the London marriage mill to assist her father in his research, especially when it comes to his intriguing patient, Louis Radman. But it’s not long before Bella’s curiosity alerts her to the danger of her father’s work . . . and to the fact that Louis is not who or whathe seems.


After centuries struggling with his vile existence, Louis Radman will soon be free of his affliction, thanks to his very capable physician. Unfortunately, his heart is less secure around the man’s tempting daughter. His yearning to walk in the light once more is complicated by his desire for the delightful Bella, who is as intelligent as she is fearless. But if history has taught him anything, it’s not to tempt fate.


Still, happiness has a price and Louis is soon reminded that mortality comes with unfortunate limitations. To protect his new bride, he must face the demons from his past who wish to pull him back into their vampiric fold.

Yet, if he’s forced to return to his midnight world, will he lose his beloved Bella forever?

Thanks, Di. I remember the look on your face when you saw the front cover. I saw "Oh, heck no!" all over it. I'm glad you took the chance.
