THE HOUSE OF DEBAUCH: Clairwil and Zunker Debauch have a pressing problem, but they are slow to understand just what it might be. Since Count Strigor and his bestial servants took possession of the neighboring property, Clairwil hears howling and the family’s once reliable bookkeeper, Johanna Reinfeld, has become dreamy and vague.
Father Reinhardt, the headmaster of The Blessed Lamb Catholic Academy in New Orleans, and Marcellus Debauch share a shameful secret involving Clairwil’s first cousin, Dee. What Dee and his “sister” Presia don’t know will be Clairwil’s heartache.
Shameful behavior runs through the family, as Zunker and his mother, Vixenna Blaisdale-Debauch, are as wild as one can be in 1909 — and not be run out of New Orleans on a rail!
Zunker seduces priests at his old alma mater, the Catholic Academy of the Blessed Lamb, while Vixenna takes down the handsome manservants, one by one. If she only would turn her eyes to the peevish Johanna, who worshipped her as a slave — until she found a new master in Count Strigor.
When Clairwil goes to her beloved brother to discuss their calamities, Zunker unhelpfully runs amok in the French Quarter, leaving her to manage the family funerals. Clairwil dares not ask her cousins for assistance, as her love for them has been transformed into bloodlust.
Before the Debauch family is forever ruined, Dee and Clairwil must put aside their differences and fight their common enemies: Count Strigor, his werewolf servants, and a trio of female vampires with a taste for opium — and each other.
The Debauch cousin’ struggle with dark forces leads to a showdown on Mardi Gras in the Vieux Carré, where Vampire and Lycan fangs come out and the four cousins learn what” family” truly means.
THE HOUSE OF DEBAUCH is a vintage, erotic vampire novel for adults, a tale packed with lush historical details on the magic and decadence of New Orleans. THE HOUSE OF DEBAUCH was inspired by the ironic humor of Huysman’s “Against the Grain (A Rebours)” and Oscar Wilde’s “Picture of Dorian Gray” but belongs on a shelf between Marquis de Sade’s “Justine” and Anne Rice’s “Interview.” Author Clair LaVaye, born in New Orleans, is a lover of gothic and occult lore.
