Dark Shadows: Wolf Moon Rising- Lara's new novel, based on Dark Shadows was released on August 20, 2013! 


When a portrait that has maintained Quentin Collins' youthful appearance for than a century – and has also kept his werewolf curse at bay – is lost, Quentin begins to dread the full moon.

Meanwhile, David, the sixteen-year-old heir to the Collins fortune, has fallen in love with Jacqueline, a young girl living at the Old House, who is the reincarnation of Angelique. David and Jacqueline are swept back in time to the Prohibition Era of the 1920s, where David uncovers dark secrets of Collins family history.

Most threatening of all, Dr. Nathaniel Blair, an expert in the paranormal, has come to Collinwood because he suspects it of harbouring a vampire. Fortunately, Barnabas Collins has returned to his coffin after a disastrous flirtation with life as a human, but what Blair discovers places the entire Collins family in jeopardy.
