Publisher Description

THE DARK FANTASY BOOKTOK BLOCKBUSTER!

In this dark, fantasy sensation, S. T. Gibson spins the gothic, seductive tale of Dracula's first bride, Constanta.


This is my last love letter to you, though some would call it a confession. . .

Saved from the brink of death by a mysterious stranger, Constanta is transformed from a medieval peasant into a bride fit for an undying king. But when Dracula draws a cunning aristocrat and a starving artist into his web of passion and deceit, Constanta realizes that her beloved is capable of terrible things.

Finding comfort in the arms of her rival consorts, she begins to unravel their husband's dark secrets. With the lives of everyone she loves on the line, Constanta will have to choose between her own freedom and her love for her husband. But bonds forged by blood can only be broken by death.

"A dizzying nightmare of a romance that will leave you aching, angry and ultimately hopeful." --Hannah Whitten, New York Times bestselling author of For the Wolf

Thumbs Up“There was a lot to like about this book—Constanta’s character grows and changes with time. She overcomes so much abuse and domestic violence but is still able to find herself through the fog of yearslong trauma. The writing is interesting, and I especially enjoyed the second person POV that is employed through most of the narrative. However, the epilogue felt unnecessary and changed the tone and purpose of the book. It was nice that Constanta, Magdalena, and Alexi were able to reunite and find each other again, but it also felt like a distraction and forced sex scene to add spice to the story. 3.75⭐️”

“Was a fast read, the writing style was fine, the content was just ok for me. I seem to deviate from the masses on this one. Just ok.”
“3.5★ I went into this book with high expectations based on the reviews and I was not disappointed. There was passion and poison and it had me captivated for /most/ of the story. I teetered between giving it 4★ but due to the slow down in parts I settled for 3.5★ instead. It is worth a read if you're interested in a Dracula based re-telling from an alternative perspective which puts the reader in the position of Dracula.”
