Long in the Tooth: A May-December (1869) Romance
Cornelius Van Hoyk has been a member of the charmingly undead since 1869. Has he held a passing fancy for a target of his sanguine pursuits? Of course, but it's been years. Today's young women simply do not appeal. Youth is wasted on the young, they say, and his time is wasted on "#them." But what's to be done? A vampire must eat, and an attractive young man must pursue beautiful, malleable young women...
But when Cornelius meets his latest conquest's grandmother, all bets are off. Dorothy Leigh is everything he ever wanted in a woman: intelligent, mature, witty... experienced . But convincing Dorothy to see him for the sesquicentennial man he is on the inside and not the buff and virile stud he appears on the outside will prove a challenge. How do you woo a woman who's been around the block and knows every trick in the book?
By writing a new book, of course.
Long in the Tooth is a romantic novella meant as a light-hearted response to an unfortunate trend, written by an author who might be aging out the young-woman age bracket. Might be.
