San Francisco, 1969. Vampire Conrad Quintano has been around for centuries—long enough to know that falling for a human is a terrible idea. Much less falling for adventure-seeking hippie Desert Rose. An even more terrible idea? Agreeing to raise her babies and protect them with his life.

Present day. Marc and Julie Fischer have always known they’re vampires. Raised in virtual isolation, they’ve never known their parentage or their unique status in the world. But once their uncle comes to take them home, the family reunion is nothing like they anticipated and they’re thrust into a world they’re completely unprepared for.

Each story in the Children of Night series is a standalone story and can be enjoyed in any order.

"The characters were charming, and engaging and visiting the past while living in the present really worked for me." --Cindyg, Goodreads

"I highly recommend this book to adult fans of paranormal and vamp romance novels. Expect the unexpected." --Holjo, Goodreads

"P.G. Forte, is one of my favorite writers, and In The Dark, rife with relatable, imperfect characters and a plot that’s multi-layered as well as chock full of suspense, is a prime example of why." --Tina, Goodreads

Wow...what a great first story in what I hope is an ongoing series. It states on the back cover "Children of the Night, Book 1"...I sooo look forward to book two.
I really enjoyed the whole take on the vampire baby daddy thing. The characters where charming, and engaging and visiting the past while l ...more

In the prologue, we are introduced to the Vampire Conrad. Many questions surround this mysterious man. The most pressing for me being why does he speak French all the time if he’s Italian? However, I digress. When we meet Conrad in 1969, he is rushing to the side of a dying female called Suzanne (AK ...more

Rated 4.5/5

Summary: Conrad is the apex around whom the characters in this book revolve. He is one of the most powerful vampires in the world, and he leads his San Francisco based nest with generosity, affection, fear and cruelty. The opposing facets of his power allow him to maintain control of his ...more

You know a book is good when you enjoy it as much, if not more, the second time you read it. This is certainly one of those stories that just keeps on giving, making you eager to turn the plot over and over in your head, long after you’ve read the last word. P.G. Forte, is one of my favorite writer ...more

By Renee October 06, 2012

I'm not an official vampire-lore fangirl, mostly because it seems like everyone's doing the "same" vampires. There are so many conventions that it seems like "nothing new." So I was pleasantly surprised with this book, because Ms. Forte's vampiric world is truly unique. It's full of these wonderfull ...more

When vampire Conrad falls for a young innocent girl in 1968, his life is changed forever. Suzanne, or Desert Rose as she liked to call herself, decides that she want's to become a vampire and spend forever with Conrad. But when she learns she's pregnant with twins will she finish the transition? Fla ...more

By Samantha November 09, 2015

I found this book to an interesting twist to the vampire world. I really liked the development of Conrad and desert Rose who sacrificed her own life to give birth to her vampire twins which is an anomaly in this world. I really loved the twins who were raised by Conrad and Damien who were the only o ...more

***I received a ARC for this book in exchange for a honest review***

This book was absolutely great! Between the romance of Conrad and Desert Rose and the mystery of where Conrad is today is just gratifying. The author had a way of making the past, seem like the present and definitely interesting. I ...more

By Penny November 09, 2015

This book was definitely not what I was expecting to read. Most vampire books are all about the boy getting girl type this was nothing like that it had more substance than that a whole back story and current story all at once. I really cannot explain. But I do recommend this book. This book gives yo ...more

By Casie November 04, 2015

A very unique tale of vampire dynamics and the love life of a very old and powerful vampire. Desert Rose is a beautiful character and the story of her sacrifice to bring two born vampires into the world. I love the flash backs in this story line. I can't wait to read the next installment of this ser ...more

By Tracy November 08, 2015

Interesting story. I loved the twins and hope to see more of them in the next book. I also hope somehow Desert Rose makes a come back. ...more

A fascinatingly different vampire story that I could not put down! ...more

By Alexandra December 18, 2015

Normally I have a problem with stories where the view changes and there are time "hops" but this book was structured so clearly I could enjoy it fully - both timelines, both stories that flow together into one and each intriguing, compelling and full of very likeable characters. It was breathtaking ...more

By Kristen December 18, 2015

This is a unique and interesting vampire story that offers quite a different perspective and I loved reading this. The love story between Conrad and Desert Rose was beautifully told and I loved the complexity of Conrad's character as shown through the several flashbacks throughout this story. We mov ...more

By Sarah November 04, 2015

It is rare to find a story wrapped around children born as vampires. Marc and Julia were raised knowing they just did not know who their parents were. 40 years after their birth they are brought to San Francisco because their guardian has gone missing. This tale that switches from modern day to SF ...more

By Nicole April 27, 2013

Vampire family drama. Vampires are made, not born--except for twins Julie and Marc Fischer. One plotline was set in 1968 and dealt with the twins' mother's relationship with master vamp Conrad, while the second plotline concerned a search for the missing Conrad in the present. I found this book high ...more

Pretty decent book. Thank you Kindle for getting me hooked on this series. ...more

A very different adult paranormal. It was lengthy, but I enjoyed it very much. I'm glad that my patience was rewarded in the end; most of my questions were answered. This was a well written book. A++ ...more
