A husband, a family, a comfortable life: Theodora Lestrange lives in terror of it all.With a modest inheritance and the three gowns that comprise her entire wardrobe, Theodora leaves Edinburgh—and a disappointed suitor—far behind. She is bound for Rumania, where tales of vampires are still whispered, to visit an old friend and write the book that will bring her true independence. She arrives at a magnificent, decaying castle in the Carpathians, replete with eccentric inhabitants: the ailing dowager; the troubled steward; her own fearful friend, Cosmina. But all are outstripped in dark glamour by the castle's master, Count Andrei Dragulescu.Bewildering and bewitching in equal measure, the brooding nobleman ignites Theodora's imagination and awakens passions in her that she can neither deny nor conceal. His allure is superlative, his dominion over the superstitious town, absolute—Theodora may simply be one more person under his sway.Before her sojourn is ended—or her novel completed—Theodora will have encountered things as strange and terrible as they are seductive. For obsession can prove fatal…and she is in danger of falling prey to more than desire.

As a fan of Deanna Raybourn's Lady Julia Gray series, I wasn't quite sure how I would feel about a standalone not set in that world. I shouldn't have been worried.Full of the mysterious gothic spookiness we've come to love from her other books, with the same clean style of romance, I thoroughly enjo...

2.5 starsIt was ok, nothing spectacular. Fans of the paranormal romance/mystery will likely enjoy far more. Perfectly happy to not have read it, so not really recommending it, but nothing I really objected to either. Just not for me.
