This book was very similar to Raybourn's other novels that center around Lady Julia Gray. Theodora travels to Transylvania to work on a book and offer support for a former school friend. While there, she meets an enigmatic count (who may or may not have some connection to vampires) and deals with a murder.

Not a bad book and the atmosphere was well done. A little spooky and creepy. The hero, the count, was an interesting and flawed character.

My only complaint was that it followed exactly the same story arc as the writer's previous works. Smart lady, dead body, gorgeous enigmatic man, suspicion, romance, mystery solved, happy ending. (Although in her previous books, you had to wait a while for the happy ending.)

Good to pass the time, but ultimately forgettable.
