The Vampyre of Moura (Moura Series)

Anne Wicklow returns to Moura, the home she had shared with her late husband, to assume the duties of housekeeper for the new tenants. The mysterious Maitre Stavko and his eerily beautiful daughter Tyra are running Moura as an academy for young ladies.

Anne must come to grips not only with the ghosts of her own memories, but with strange ""unholy doings"" at Moura as well. While the starving and desperate Moura wolves prowl just beyond the doors, more sinister things are taking place within. And despite her revulsion towards the Maitre, Anne is irresistibly drawn to him, mesmerised by his unnatural powers.

But she also finds herself falling in love with the dashing captain who comes to teach the girls, despite the fact that he is Tyra's lover.
