Praise

“An intensely erotic story of romance and obsession. . . . Lusciously sexy and outrageously chilling by turns.” –Newark Star-Ledger

“Required reading. . . . Essex retells Bram Stoker’s Dracula legend, but this time the story comes entirely from heroine Mina Harker’s point of view . . . meeting the ubervampire himself face to face, not to mention fang to neck.” –New York Post

“Thrilling, shocking, and deliciously seductive, Dracula in Love will sink its teeth into you and suck you in from start to finish. Karen Essex has wielded her magic on one of the world’s most terrifying tales, and the result is absolutely irresistible.” –Anne Fortier, author of Juliet

“Dark, gothic, and utterly sensual. . . . 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

“Beautifully written. . . .  Romance and vampire fiction buffs will snap this up.” —Library Journal 
 
Dracula in Love is a sensual fantasy feast, a flight of the imagination, a darkly rich pleasure.” —Margaret George, author of The Memoirs of Cleopatra
 
“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

“In Essex’s hands, Mina becomes a woman with unusual gifts and powers, and she must learn to use them.” —BookPage

“Gorgeously written and erotically charged, the novel Dracula in Love is like its century-jumping central characters: deeply rooted in the past while pushing ageless mythology into strikingly current realms. Historical novels should have plenty of history, and this novel surely does. Romantic novels should have their share of sex and romance, and this novel delivers both. But its true revelation is its gripping sense of anticipation, heartache, discovery, and unflinching chill.” —Bruce Feiler, author of Walking the Bible

“[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
