I hope that the season finds you warm and reading. It is getting so cold here. Hoping for a mild winter but Mother Nature has a mind of her own and often carries a big stick.
Dracula: Hearts of Stone (Dracula is a GOOD GUY. There’s a Siamese cat named Moon Diamond. The author Piers Anthony is a vampire.)
We start with a shiny new pot of boiling water and add too many evil vampires, and not enough of the good biters. Toss in one suicidal Dracula; add a cup of mayhem and a dash of romance. Stir in some red sheriffs. Oh yes, and a pinch of mirth. Stir lovingly and you have a novel by A. J. Gallant. If it sounds like the recipe for you then you must read Dracula: Hearts of Stone.
