If you love Dracula - you'll love this trilogy. Written in the same "diary" format as Bram Stoker's classic. The trilogy gives you a before, during, and after to Dracula. Jeanne Kalogridis did an awesome job of writing her stories around the established classic so that it seems part of the original story. Read the set !!!

A Touch of Velvet. A Touch of Blood. - For a half century, a beautiful woman has been a prisoner to one man's cruelty. She is Zsuzsanna, the once-exquisite niece of Vlad Tsepesh - also known as Dracula - robbed of her beauty and her youth by Dracula himself. Now, through a ceremony of blood and passion, Zsuzsanna is about to be set free - under a woman's caress. Zsuzsanna's rebirth comes from the touch of the Vampire Elisabeth of Bathory, the beautiful, sensuous countess determined to destroy Vlad forever. But when Zsuzsanna travels to England with Elisabeth, she will be bitterly surprised. For while the lovers stalk Abraham Van Helsing, the mysterious doctor who is the key to Vlad's destruction, Zsuzsanna discovers that Elisabeth has a secret life ... and a pact with the one being more powerful and more dangerous that Dracula: the mythical Dark Lord ...
From the rosy clouds of a Rumanian dawn to the touch of velvet against flesh, Lord of The Vampires is an experience in breathtaking sensuality and true terror. With this spellbinding novel, the crowning work in Jeanne Kalogridis's heralded vampire trilogy, the final drama is played out - with the soul of humankind hanging in the balance ...

Book 3 in the Diaries of the Family Dracul series - this was my least favorite of the three books. I had a hard time keeping with it til the end, and they I didn't really understand the ending at all. Somewhat disappointing.
Abraham Van Helsing is pominent in his desire to destroy Vlad and all vampires. His wife is suffering from Zsuzanna's bite and is institutionalized since she is quite mad. His mother, Mary, (Arkady's wife) is dying and suffering greatly but nothing can be done to help her. Due to Van Helsing's efforts, Vlad and Zsuzsanna are dying a slow death as well. However Vlad has invited Elisabeth (another vampire though a different kind) to his castle to restore them. Of course, Elisabeth has plans of her own and a deal with the Dark One. The mad antics of all involved develop into an interesting story with a very satisfying conclusion.
