Loosely inspired by the gothic stories of the 1800s (e.g Frankenstein and Dracula), these novels mix atmospheric eeriness, intense plots, and romantic tension to create the perfect read for a gloomy afternoon.
Genre: Adult historical romance
Series length: Currently one with two more to come
Violence: Moderately high, not graphic
Romance: High, including kisses and physical attraction, but kept clean

Recommendation: Excellent read for fans of gothic fiction, historical romance lovers who enjoy some suspense mixed into their stories, or romantic suspense readers who also enjoy historicals.
