In this wonderfully transporting novel, award-winning author Karen Essex turns a timeless classic inside out, spinning a haunting, erotic, and suspenseful story of eternal love and possession.
From the shadowy banks of the river Thames to the wild and windswept Yorkshire coast, Dracula’s eternal muse, Mina Murray, vividly recounts the intimate details of what really transpired between her and the Count—the joys and terrors of a passionate affair that has linked them through the centuries, and her rebellion against her own frightening preternatural powers.
Mina’s version of this gothic vampire tale is a visceral journey into Victorian England’s dimly lit bedrooms, mist-filled cemeteries, and asylum chambers, revealing the dark secrets and mysteries locked within. Time falls away as she is swept into a mythical journey far beyond mortal comprehension, where she must finally make the decision she has been avoiding for almost a millennium.
Bram Stoker’s classic novel offered one side of the story, in which Mina had no past and bore no responsibility for the unfolding events. Now, for the first time, the truth of Mina’s personal voyage, and of vampirism itself, is revealed. What this flesh and blood woman has to say is more sensual, more devious, and more enthralling than the Victorians could have expressed or perhaps even have imagined.

Dracula in love
My half mom is the author of this book! (so proud) :)
I can't get this book out of my head! LOVED it!!
I am a huge Dracula fan and fell in love with the 1992 film version of Bram Stoker's Dracula. I decided to continue my romance high and read this book and am so impressed by how deeply romantic it is! Such strong love and passion and great story line! Was so very interesting living this story through Mina's perspective. I couldn't put this book down, and it haunted me in my dreams and thoughts throughout each day (and still is). I wish I could read more! Thank you for igniting the romance flame in my life, my husband appreciates it too :)
Love it ! I'm reading currently again...
