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

Slightly Smiling Face“This was a captivating read of domestic abuse and its survivors. The portrayal of the type of abuse was surprisingly accurate and emotional, and it makes me happy to see this type of representation be available and seen. I loved how the author made the effort to not put any of the blame of the abuse on the victims. Though the character that narrates the story does blame herself in certain instances, it is done realistically and written with understanding. Throughout the book it is made clear that this is also a love letter for survivors, holding the message that no one is alone in the experiences they go through. The beautiful ending showing a positive polyamorous relationship between the survivors had me smiling, not only because the characters made it out safely, but also that polyamory got shown in a positive light at the end, which is something I don’t normally come across.”

Smiling Face with Heart-Eyes“This book was a piece of art. The writing was almost lyrical and the story was seductively dark. I enjoyed every second of this book. It has interview with a vampire vibes and reads like a letter written by Constansa to her Love; her Lord starting from the moment they met to the moment they depart. Absolutely stunning writing ❤️🥀”
