Blood and Roses(1994)
A novel by Sharon Bainbridge
Everyone knows the story of Count Dracula, the creature of the night who stalked the streets of London, searching for blood. But few know the strange tale of Sir Geoffrey, and the shocking events that plagued a small English village shortly afterwards..the stranger came to High grimmire seeking refuge in his ancestral home. His mysterious, reclusive behavior aroused suspicion among the local gossips-and his striking looks and bachilor status captured the hearts of every eligible young lady in town. But one woman grew pale and weak after meeting Sir Goeffrey. Her life drained away night after night..but not her passion. The only cure seemed to lie in the hands of another stranger-a doctor who claimed to be a colleague of the famous Professor Van Helsing..the man who destroyed Dracula.
