Review

Reviewed By Alysha Allen for Readers' Favorite

Lucinda Elliot time travels to the French Revolution where one of the last ofthe aristocratic rakes, Émile Dubois, charms his pious and poorrelative, Sophie de Courcy into marrying him. Within the tradition ofthe Gothic novel, once married and settled in North Wales, Sophie andÉmile must overcome a ruthless vampire couple who seek to use Émile fortheir own private ends. Additionally, a seductive femme fatale vampiress tests their love and awakens sordid memories from Émile's past which he must battle and to which Sophie reconciles herself. Meanwhile, Sophie's maid Agnes and her beau, Georges, otherwise known as Emile'sside-kick/valet, join forces with the newly-married couple to save thevillage from turning into a coven of neck-biting vampires.

As a modest aficionado of eighteenth-century British literature, I amacquainted with and have even read some of the popular works from thisperiod, from the rising sentimental novel to the emerging Gothic novelin the 1790s. Similarly, I was pleased to find that amongst manycontemporary authors, Lucinda Elliot attempted to authentically narratethe story from an eighteenth-century perspective, to the extent oftitling her novel in Enlightenment fashion. Told simply as an historical paranormal romance, it is well-written and a book I would recommend tolovers of this genre. Moreover, I laud Elliot for her indubitableappreciation of this prolific century in Britain when rakes, prudes, and vampires prevailed, albeit separately, now skillfully combined inElliot's twenty-first century reincarnation of pre-Austen fin de siècle.
