Deanna Raybourn's The dead travel fast
#1
I read this book a while ago and the location and atmosphere stuck with me. I like the romance development but most of all the isolated rugged Romanian setting. Can anyone please please recommend something similar? The only ones I can come up with are by Eve Silver and I've read those already. I'd love any suggestions.

Thanks

Can you give us a little idea what the book was about?

It sounds interesting, if maybe more Victorian than Gothic. I do like the title.

The Vampire Cameo by Dorothea Niles is similar, as well as the entire Dark Shadows series of novels by Marilyn Ross. There is a newer Dark Shadows novel that was reprinted when the dreadful Johnny Depp movie came out a while back. Dark Shadows: The Salem Branch.

Here is a synopsis from amazon that describes it perfectly Smile

With a modest inheritance and the three gowns that comprise her entire wardrobe, Theodora leaves Edinburgh—and a disappointed suitor—far behind. She is bound for Rumania, where tales of vampires are still whispered, to visit an old friend and write the book that will bring her true independence.

She arrives at a magnificent, decaying castle in the Carpathians, replete with eccentric inhabitants: the ailing dowager; the troubled steward; her own fearful friend, Cosmina. But all are outstripped in dark glamour by the castle's master, Count Andrei Dragulescu.

Bewildering and bewitching in equal measure, the brooding nobleman ignites Theodora's imagination and awakens passions in her that she can neither deny nor conceal. His allure is superlative, his dominion over the superstitious town, absolute—Theodora may simply be one more person under his sway.
