Author Syrie James (The Lost Memoirs of Jane Austen) offers readers a breathtaking new perspective on Bram Stoker's classic tale of the king of the vampires with Dracula, My Love. In these "Secret Journals of Mina Harker," the object of Dracula's desire relates for the very first time the shocking story of her scandalous seduction and sexual rebirth. This is not the chaste vampire romance of Twilight--Dracula, My Love celebrates a passionate obsession in all its hot and sensuous glory.
“With its poetic, 19th-century prose style, this tale about a fierce, forbidden romance will appeal to even the most jaded romance fan.”
“This very romantic side to Dracula is powerfully sensuous and masterfully told... Should sit side by side with Bram Stoker’s Dracula on your keeper shelf.”
“5 stars. Poignant, passionate, and powerful... Critically acclaimed and bestselling author, Syrie James, once again transports her readers back in time and enchants them ...Truly outstanding!”
“We enter Mina’s psyche...and likewise develop an understanding of Dracula’s motivations. This insight explains why a human woman and a ‘monster’ would literally ache to be with one another. I was exhilarated, enthralled, and completely mesmerized. Vampire book lovers will absolutely love this book.”
“Dracula, My Love had me hooked immediately. Filled with suspense and romance, it had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was incredibly well written and I couldn’t put it down. Syrie James paints an amazing picture of Dracula that left me both infatuated and appalled.”
“Only Mina Harker, who once fell under the seductive spell of literature’s most famous vampire, knows Dracula’s true story. James gives readers an intriguing alternate theory as to the events that occurred in Stoker’s classic horror tale while at the same time delivering a spooky yet thoroughly romantic love story.”
“This remarkable story twists and turns with every page ... The story unfolds with fast-paced action, well-written dialogue, and historical events mixed in with a truly remarkable love story that keeps the reader glued to every page. Another hit (for Syrie James)... right out of the park.”
“Must read... I love the way this book was written... Both love stories (Mina and Jonathan/Mina and Dracula) have such depth... I became so caught up in the story that I wasn’t sure who I wanted Mina to end up with... A really emotional love story. Rating: 9 (Excellent)”
