This book (a book club omnibus) contains all the books in the "Jonathan Barrett, Gentleman Vampire" series. They are:
In this introduction to the series, young Jonathan Barrett arrives in London in 1773 to pursue his college education. His fate among the undead is sealed by the unnaturally beautiful Nora Jones, who seduces him and consumes his blood. Unbeknownst to Jonathan, he is no longer the same man, something he soon discovers upon his return to America to join the armed forces and defend his country. Rather than an appetite for traditional fare, he has developed a strange craving for human blood.
"Death and the Maiden"
Threatened by soldiers on the outside and turmoil on the inside, Jonathan Barrett valiantly fights to protect his family and the peace of the Barrett estate in this thrilling sequel to Red Death. Nearly consumed by his dark desires, Jonathan struggles to control his supernatural powers and his overwhelming thirst for blood while in the company of his immediate family and a scheming young cousin.
Continuing the saga of Red Death and Death and the Maiden, Jonathan Barrett returns to England in search of Nora Jones-for only Nora knows if his unexpected destiny is a blessing or a curse; it was her kiss that initiated him into the world of the living dead. Finding her missing, Jonathan steps up his hunt and in the process discovers startling secrets about his bizarre family as well as a malicious plot against him.
"Dance of Death"
Seemingly invincible since his transformation into a vampire, Jonathan Barrett must admit his own weakness when he unexpectedly meets a four-year-old boy who strangely resembles him. Armed with a powerful weapon to use against him, his love for his son, Jonathan's enemies have gained an advantage. The only hope for Jonathan and his child's survival lies in the return of the mysterious Nora Jones.
