A Different Hunger –
A Dark Fantasy by Lila Richards
Lila Richards’s debut novel explores the eternal hunger for love, and what it means to be human – or not.
In Victorian London, when an ill-advised love affair sees Rufus de Hunte challenged to an illegal duel, his father, to avoid scandal, banishes him to New Zealand. During the voyage, Rufus meets the captivating Serafina Radzinskaya, travelling with Anton Springer, who may or may not be her father. Despite his uncertainty, Rufus finds himself falling in love with her – even after he discovers both she and Springer are vampires. When Rufus is badly beaten by the vicious Toby Fox, and seems certain to die, Serafina, who returns his love and fears losing him, turns him into a vampire. Rufus’s horror and resentment threaten their love, but when they reach New Zealand and Serafina is captured by Viviana Alexandreu, an ancient and powerful vampire seeking revenge on Springer, Rufus must acknowledge his true feelings and find a way to rescue her and to end Viviana’s insane vendetta once and for all.

Praise for A Different Hunger -
"A Different Hunger fits squarely into the realm of Paranormal Romance, a sub-genre that is rapidly filling local book shops and leading a charge in new-found interest in the dark genre. While Author Lila Richards may not have the same fame as Stephenie Meyers, she certainly writes in a far superior manner, both in style and technically" – Scary Minds.
"A Different Hunger is a very well written book, which makes the reader feel they are actually watching the events take place. The vivid descriptions will leave your mind with a full picture, just as if you were watching a movie. A real thriller!"
"Here, at long last, is a book filled with vile villains, heroic heroes and strong women. So if, like me, you're ready to read an adult vampire story, this is it!" – L Morrison on Amazon UK.
"I have just finished A Different Hunger, and I have to say it was great. It's really well written, and I loved the story to bits. Well done indeed!"
