Dracula in Love by Karen Essex
Giveaway Has Ended!
And The Winner Is.... Pixie! Thanks to EVERYONE for joining in on the fun! I'll be writing a separate post with all the great vampires everyone mentioned too! Some of those vampires I never knew about! Thanks for letting me know!
"Reader, you are about to enter a world that exists simultaneous with your won. But be warned: in its realm, there are no rules, and there is certainly no neat formula to become -- or to destroy -- one who has reisen above the human condition... The truth is, we must fear monsters less and be warier of our own kind.
London, 1890. Mina Murray, the rosy-cheeked, quintessentially pure Victorian heroine, becomes Count Dracula’s object of desire. To preserve her chastity, five male “defenders” rush in to rescue her from the vampire’s evil clutches. This is the version of the story we've been told. But now, from Mina’s own pen, we discover that the story is vastly different when told from the female point of view.
In this captivating, bold act of storytelling, award-winning author Karen Essex breathes startling new life into the characters of Bram Stoker's Dracula, transporting the reader into the erotic and bizarre underbelly of the original story. While loosely following the events of its classic predecessor, Dracula in Love deviates from the path at every turn." ... Inside Book Jacket
