Giveaway - Dracula in Love - Karen Essex

Want a chance to sink your teeth into Karen Essex's new book Dracula in Love?
Thanks to the generouse folks at Doubleday Publishing I have two copies to giveaway!

What's it about:

From the publisher:

"London, 1890. Mina Murray, the rosy-cheeked, quintessentially pure Victorian heroine, becomes Count Dracula’s object of desire. To preserve her chastity, five male “defenders” rush in to rescue her from the vampire’s evil clutches. This is the version of the story we’ve been told. But now, from Mina’s own pen, we discover that the story is vastly different when told from the female point of view.

In this captivating, bold act of storytelling, award-winning author Karen Essex breathes startling new life into the characters of Bram Stoker’s Dracula, transporting the reader into the erotic and bizarre underbelly of the original story. While loosely following the events of its classic predecessor, Dracula in Love deviates from the path at every turn.
From the shadowy banks of the river Thames to the wild and windswept Yorkshire coast, Dracula’s eternal muse—the most famous woman in vampire lore—vividly recounts the joys and terrors of a passionate affair that has linked her and the Count through the centuries, and her rebellion against her own frightening preternatural powers."

Read an excerpt of Dracula in Love. You can find Karen on Facebook as well.

Two copies up for grabs, US only, no po boxes please. Ends Sat. Sept 25th at 6 pm EST. Good luck!

I have a PO Box. It doesn't like being excluded from this contest, as it's a very nice PO Box. But... whatever.

Besides, I've got to make a dent on the TBR, as you well know, before I can bring more into the house.

So... I'm really dropping in to say thanks for the e-mail. I've got this posted at Win a Book for you.
