Blurb:Terrance is fascinated with the vampires of Blue Moon House. When a fire leaves them homeless, he seizes the opportunity to put them in his debt and himself into their hearts. When they agree to his proposition of a new house in America, they set off on a voyage of wonder, danger and pleasure.
Context: Kate, a whore from Blue Moon House who joined Terrance and the vampires in their journey across the ocean, is discovering that she is no longer what she once was.
“Mister Ford, would you tell me if this lady is yours, or one of the others?”
Terrance smiled. “I don't know as it is business of yours, but I don't currently have a lady. However, there are several whose company I enjoy. Kate is a wonderful girl, don't you agree?”
“You do? Well, perhaps you need to take her from me.” Kate's mouth dropped open and Terrance did chuckle.
“I will?” Devlin asked. He seemed confused. “Well, then I shall. Come Kate, let me find us some refreshment.” He wrapped Kate's hand around his arm, leading her away. She glanced back at Terrance, shaking her head, but he shooed her on.
“Mister Ford?” another woman asked. He turned to find a lovely lady with hair nearly as fine and light as his own. Hers wasn't piled like so many in attendance, but fell down her back in a shimmering curtain. “Would you walk with me? My husband has been...unavailable lately. I was wondering if you might be...available.”
Terrance smiled, taking her hand. “I seem to be available.”
