“Reborn by Blood” is the story of Clementine, a woman in her early thirties with a broken heart, a job that is getting her nowhere and a writing block. Gifted with unusually intense intuitive and precognitive abilities, Clementine meets Ichiro, a man she created as a fictional character months ago, a man now haunting her dreams. A synchronistic encounter in a subway station leads Clementine into a world she only suspected existed until now. When Clementine agrees to work for Ichiro, a vampire DJ with a passion for chaos, music and blood, it’s only a matter of time before she steps into a world of intrigue, magick and seduction.
I hated to rush in the morning, especially on a hot and sticky one. I had just enough time for a quick shower, a couple of sips of coffee and a run to the subway station.
Under the hot stream of the shower head, I still cursed the disturbing dream that was back haunting my nights. In the dream, or was it a nightmare, there was a party for the launch of my first book. An Asian man with a black and blue mane of hair, wearing a pair of silver headphones around his neck, stood in front of turntables, mixing music. His lips covered with blood had me recoil while his lean body and well toned arms revealed by a sleeveless black t-shirt left me breathless with lust. The pounding of my heart matched the beats of the dance music the DJ with the bloody lips was playing. He smiled at me, revealing perfect white teeth and fangs. I stood there, holding my new book. I had to focus hard to look at the details on the front cover. I realized the DJ was on it. When I looked up again, he was standing close to me. The brush of his lips on my shoulder was a soft caress on my skin before he bit down and I moaned in ecstasy.
Now, under droplets of water, I noticed some redness on my left shoulder and cursed myself for thinking that the night dream had anything to do with it.
