She is as beautiful as she is evil, an eons-old power that has sparked a hundred myths and now threatens to ravage the lives of each of her lovers. Lord Byron, Shelley and Keats -- the world's greatest poets -- will find inspiration in her tender embrace ... and life-draining terror in her kiss. For she is immortal, unworldly, unmerciful ...
Like a vampire.
A Doctor named Michael Crawford, having already suffered the death of his first wife and his younger brother, losses his second wife when she dies on their wedding night. He is blamed for his wife's death, but can't remember the events of that evening.
