Description
"Bestselling author Syrie James has crafted her most powerful tale yet in this amazingly written retelling of Dracula from Mina Harker's perspective. Perfect for anyone who loves vampires--and there are millions of readers out there who do--this novel deftly unveils Mina's story, a woman falling into a forbidden, dangerous love and whose powerful emotions are subdued by the restrictions of her time"--Provided by publisher.
Description
Mina Harker is torn between two men. Struggling to hang on to the deep, pure love she's found within her marriage to her husband, Jonathan, she is inexorably drawn into a secret, passionate affair with a charismatic but dangerous lover. This haunted and haunting creature has awakened feelings and desires within her that she has never before known, remaking her as a woman. Although everyone she knows fears him and is pledged to destroy him, Mina sees a side to him that the others cannot: a tender, romantic side; a man who's taken full advantage of his gift of immortality to expand his mind and talents; a man who is deeply in love and who may not be so guilty of evil after all. Yet, to surrender is surely madness, for to be with him could end her life. It may cost Mina all she holds dear, but to make her choice she must learn everything she can about the remarkable origins and sensuous powers of this man, this exquisite monster, this...Dracula! --from Amazon.
