London, 1890. Mina Murray Harker, 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 story we have been told. But now, from Mina's own pen, we discover a tale more sensual, more devious, and more enthralling than the Victorians could have ever imagined. From the shadowy banks of the river Thames to the wild and windswept Yorkshire coast, Mina vividly recounts the intimate details of what really transpired between her and the Count--the joys and terrors of a passionate affair, as well as her rebellion against her own frightening preternatural powers.show more

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 Esseshow more
