Guest Post: Meet Harriet, from Knights Vampire by Kryssie Fortune

Hi, Kryssie Fortune here. I’ve dropped by to introduce you to the heroine of my latest book, Knights Vampire. She’s just short of six foot tall, and she struggles to control both her weight and her temper.

Over to Harriet: 


Hi. Don’t you hate being overweight? I know I do. I’ve tried every damn diet out there—and just look at my butt. Sorry, I should introduce myself. I’m Harriet Martindale, the new archivist at Whitborough Castle and I’m ten pounds over weight. Now I sound like I’m attending an AA meeting, but I really am addicted to food.

I thought once I settled into my new job, I’d be able to stick to low calorie foods, or maybe low carb, but the anxiety’s getting to me. I can’t shake the someone’s-watching-me feeling, and when I’m nervous, I eat…chocolate. Maybe fries. Definitely pasta. Comfort food I suppose.

The castle’s a great place to work, and the people are friendly. I love the sea views, and honestly, I was lucky to land my dream job. I can practically hear you ask why I need comfort food.

Everything would be fine if my two predecessors hadn’t vanished. Losing one archivist’s unfortunate. Losing two is downright careless. I’m really worried about what will happen to the third–me.

I knew something was up when I applied for the job, but I never expected to be the only applicant. Chocolate alert. I’m so anxious I’m gorging on chocolate—and the castle tearooms serve amazing scones topped with strawberries and cream. Mmm. Adictive.

Anyway, I’ve got a whole wall of books to catalog and research, so I’d best get back. I just popped out to buy a few more bars of chocolate. See you later.



Knights Vampire2



Betrayed by the Knight Defenders and murdered by his cousin, crusader knight Blaxton de Ferrers rose as a vampire. For nine centuries, he’s preyed on the people he once swore to protect. Gradually, as his emotions leach out of him, he forgets how to feel. Then he meets Harriet.

Harriet Mortlake’s a strong sassy woman who battles her weight and her temper. Her job is to seek out the ancient secrets of the castle that was Blaxton’s childhood home. Instead, she finds the love of her life. When danger threatens Harriet, Blaxton steps in. Harriet and Blaxton, are a match made in heaven. Except… he’s a vampire and to fully claim her, he’ll have to kill her.
