Man of Shadow & Mist

by Michelle Griep


From the very first time I read The Noble Guardian from Michelle Griep, I thought there was no book–no hero–I could love better. And once again, Michelle Griep has proved me wrong. This may be my absolute new favorite from her, and that is saying something. Mobs, a man who cannot expose himself to the light, a romance that overcomes it all, AND Dracula? What more could I ask for? Fans of gothic romance are going to swoon over this story. Seriously, just writing this review makes me want to go back and read it again just for pleasure. This a book NOT to be missed, especially if you are a fan of Dracula on any level. Once again, Griep’s attention to historical detail is amazing, and I learned so much while being completely consumed by this enthralling tale. If you’ve not read it, be prepare: I WILL force you to read this book. 🙂 So save yourself the trouble. Hanging garlic won’t stop me. Go read this book.

Genre: Historical Romance, 1880s England


“The world seems full of good men—even if there are monsters in it.” –Bram Stoker, Dracula

England, 1890

Vampires are alive and well in North Yorkshire, leastwise in the minds of the uneducated. Librarian Rosa Edwards intends to drive a stake through the heart of such superstitions. But gossip flies when the mysterious Sir James Morgan returns to his shadowy manor. The townsfolk say he is cursed.

James hates everything about England. The weather. The rumours. The scorn. Yet he must stay. His mother is dying of a disease for which he’s desperately trying to find a cure—an illness that will eventually take his own life.

When Rosa sets out to prove the dark gossip about James is wrong, she discovers more questions than answers. How can she accept what she can’t explain—especially the strong allure of the enigmatic man? James must battle a town steeped in fear as well as the unsettling attraction he feels for the no-nonsense librarian.

Can love prevail in a town filled with fear and doubt?
