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 Romania, 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.

    " Even better than the Lady Julia mysteries! This is so rich in detail, so imaginative, so atmospheric. More than just a vampire tale, it's romantic, mysterious, well-written, and full of history. "

    " I'm not a big reader in the vampire sub-genre, but I liked how this book sustained doubt throughout the story about whether or not there was something paranormal going on. The heroine is a well educated Victorian and somewhat interesting but not well rounded enough to really draw you in. The hero is even less well explored. The mystery plot started slow, heated up in the second half, and had a good resolution -- but then the book ends very abruptly, summing up a year (or more?) of the heroine's life in the last five pages. To me, it felt like the author wanted to end the book with the chapter before the last one, and the publisher pressed her into tacking on a different ending. "
