Dracula in love : a novel
Karen Essex
Adult Fiction ESSEX

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews  Author Notes

From Library Journal:

In Essex's sensuous reinterpretation of Dracula, Mina Harker declares that Bram Stoker had it completely wrong when he wrote his tale of a vampire aristocrat. Although many of the same characters from Stoker's classic can be found here, their personalities and agendas differ in the extreme. The Count is Mina's centuries-old lover and protector; unfortunately, her memories are deeply buried. She cannot, however, deny her attraction to his powerful presence. His caring for her contrasts greatly with the Victorian attitudes of the men currently in her life-Dr. Van Helsing, Dr. Seward, and even her husband, Johnathan. Verdict Beautifully written, this novel by the author of Leonardo's Swans features vivid images of drama, danger, and romance. It is also remarkably similar to Syrie James's Dracula, My Love in its portrayal of the strong-minded Mina and her passionate connection to Dracula, but the stories diverge with their plots. While Dracula, My Love follows the story line of Stoker's novel, Dracula in Love has a completely different take on the action. Romance and vampire fiction buffs will snap this one up.
