Dracula in Loveby Karen Essex
Synopses & Reviews
Praise for DRACULA IN LOVE:
Dark, gothic, and utterly sensual, Dracula in Love is the novel for Twilight's grownup fans. The character of Mina Murray leaps from the pages in an extraordinary confession of what truly happened between her and Count Dracula. In this novel of forbidden desires and secrecy, purity is an overrated virtue.
--Michelle Moran, bestselling author of Nefertiti: A Novel
The King of the Undead in all his manifestations confronts Victorian society, reclaiming his throne as the ultimate vampire, before whom all other paltry vampires in literature wither away. Dracula in Love is a sensual fantasy feast, a flight of the imagination, a darkly rich pleasure. Like The French Lieutenant's Woman, the novel explores and exposes the stifling confines of Victorian society, especially upon women. But the means of deliverance is altogether different.
-- Margaret George, bestselling author of The Memoirs of Cleopatra
Karen Essex turns the legendary tale of immortal love into a seductive, blood-tingling celebration of the senses; Mina Harker is a heroine for the ages — bold, intrepid, and in love with one of the most dangerous, irresistible men in history. If you read only one more vampire novel, let it be this one.
-- C.W. Gortner, author of The Last Queen and The Confessions of Catherine de Medici
Beautifully written, this novel by the author of Leonardo's Swans features vivid images of drama, danger, and romance...Romance and vampire fiction buffs will snap this one up.
You should run to this fresh perspective on Bram Stoker's classic novel... DRACULA IN LOVE] is a haunting, feminist portrayal of eternal love, forbidden desires, and Victorian virtues...a refreshing take on a classic that is sure to mesmerize readers. --Fangoria
