What are the characteristics of the Gothic Romance?

I absolutely adore that sentence!

Thank you for your reply. I simply love reading people's 'in depth' opinions. Especially when they're supported by logical explanations.

I was reading The Witching Hour, by Anne Rice, and I noticed similarities seen in Gothic Romances. I don't know if it would be considered one, but regardless, it amusing.

I'm currently trying to write what i hope to be story fitting the genre, though I'm not completely sure of what it is, exactly. There is mystery involved, romance, and the supernatural, but my main character would be what you call a 'byronic hero', and male.

I'll be looking in previous posts to see which Gothic Romances people recommend the most to acquaint myself more with the genre.
