Once upon a time, a vampire and a witch fell in love, and that love fractured the world. Now divided into sixteen isolated Divisions, the world is an unstable and dangerous place.

In the Division of NOLA, Catheryn Beauregard fears her burgeoning magical powers. Hiding as just another slave in the home of the Hoodoo Queen, Catheryn hopes her simplistic powers will simply go unnoticed. And her plan seems to be working…until the Hoodoo House is attacked by a ruthless band of vampire pirates.

Captain Rainier Dulocke and his crew need humans to feed on. In an act of desperation, they beset the Hoodoo House and take ten slaves to sustain them. Rainier takes a girl named Catheryn for himself, but her blood is giving him terrible side effects. Still, he refuses to give her up. Even when the Hoodoo Queen demands her return.

The NOLA Division is in danger. The waters are rising. Food is running out. And the Hoodoo Queen is about to destroy everything that’s left if the pirates don’t meet her request. Now Catheryn must choose who will die: the humans who sold her, the witches who bought her, or the vampires who stole her. If she fails to decide, everyone could die.

PIRATE’S CURSE is a standalone contribution to The Berkano Vampire collection. Stories can be read in any order. To learn more, visit

“But,” the Hoodoo Queen interrupted. Rainier turned back to her. “If you ever return to the Hoodoo House, if you ever step foot again in NOLA, I will kill you, and all of your men. You know I can do this.”

Rainier nodded. He couldn’t really promise he would never return to NOLA. It was a valuable trade port. But he would give the queen his word…for now.

“It is agreed,” Rainier said with a sharp bow. He then turned to Mathis. “See how many slaves the men have already rounded up. Choose nine slaves for sharing.”

“Nine?” Mathis asked. “But she said…”

“I know what she said,” he replied. “As captain, I will take one as my personal devotee.”

He looked around the room for one woman in particular. The one who had dared to fight him earlier. The one with dark eyes and the fighting spirit.

He saw her, on the floor, pressed up against the wall. Their eyes met, and a surge of electricity coursed through him. It was as if nothing else mattered and no one else was present. He wanted this woman, needed her. And soon, he would possess her.

“This one,” he said, pointing to the woman. “This one is mine.”
