Frankenstein's Creature Gets His Own Romance Story

HEART OF FRANKENSTEIN releasing in Septemper!

This book has been my most challenging to date for many reasons, yet I totally love this hero. At the very end of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Dr. Victor Frankenstein dies while on a ship trying to find a passage through the Arctic ocean. The creature comes aboard to find his creator dead. He tells the captain of the ship that he will go to the extreme north and build his own funeral pyre. 
My story starts almost 200 years later, and the creature is still alive and now living in northern Alaska. Below are some facts from the original that played into Heart of Frankenstein:
  • Victor states "I had selected his features as beautiful. Beautiful!"
  • The second the creature awoke, Victor ran away.
  • The creature hides in a shed of a poor family's cottage and learns how to read and speak though they don't know he is there.
  • The creature begs Victor for a mate. "I am alone,
    and miserable; man will not associate with me."
  • When almost finished, Victor "tore to pieces the" mate.
  • The creature kills Victor's brother in anger at his abandonment, and kills Victor's best friend and Victor's wife on their wedding night out of revenge.
Look for Heart of Frankenstein to release around the third week of September. 
Always, Lexi
He no longer feared what man or beast could do to him. The knowledge that his misery would continue into eternity, his just punishment for his early years, kept fear at bay…with one exception.
