MY Rating: * * * * *
I enjoyed Being Dracula’s Widow every bit as much as Being Mrs.Dracula! Trust me if you are a Vampire and Dracula fan, you will fall in love with these Novels! After the tragic end of her sister wives and beloved husband, Vlad Dracula at the hands of Professor Van Helsing and fellow hunters, Valeria Karajan-Dracula is devastated and alone. With only the adopted human son of second wife, Ilona, Valeria tries to move on and build a life for herself. After raising the boy and being rejected by him Valeria ends up in Paris. The home of Vlad”s third wife Fleur. Valeria falls in love with Paris and finally gives in to her preternatural urges with abandon. In an unexpected turn, after a torrid night of sex and blood, her victim Lemond whom she believes dead becomes a vampire. Valeria wants to move on, but she knows that before she can, she must make the people responsible for her families demise pay with their lives. Follow Valeria from Paris to Amsterdam and to London as she exacts her revenge on those responsible and falls into a deadly trap by a new and unseen enemy. I certainly hope there will be another story for Valeria in the future, and until then I will just have to wait for my next widow Dracula fix. Thank you and awesome job Faith Marlow!
