Today is my reveal day for the multi-author Monsters & Mayhem series, and I am so excited to bring you the cover and blurb of A Delicious Descent. All covers were by Natasha Snow Designs.
As a lifelong fan of horror, I was over the moon to be asked to participate in this collaboration, and when everyone was grabbing up classics, well... what horror collection would be complete without Dracula 🧛♂️ with a release date of Halloween (10/31/22).

Set in the original time period of 1897, A Delicious Descent is told entirely from the perspective of Jonathan Harker. Some of the story will be familiar to those who know Bram Stoker's novel, but there are many unique twists and turns, and the vampire "brides" are not the classic vixens - though certainly still vexing. Full blurb below.
Only warnings are for typical vampire violence and the mildest of dubious consent, for Dracula wants nothing more than for Jonathan to choose him willingly...
Dracula retold, with Jonathan as the object of the legendary vampire’s obsession.
Engaged to his dear friend Mina, Jonathan Harker jumps at the chance to delay their wedding by accepting an assignment in far-off Transylvania. Jonathan loves Mina but not in the way a man should love a wife, for his true passion lies with the company of men, an illicit craving he can never indulge.
Upon arriving in Transylvania to help the elusive Count Dracula purchase an estate in London, Jonathan makes some surprising if tantalizing discoveries. It seems his mysterious client has similar proclivities and encourages his male servants to explore their forbidden desires, all the while tempting Jonathan to partake.
Carnal pleasure isn’t the only surprise awaiting him, however, as Dracula’s secrets are far deadlier than Jonathan ever imagined, and as alluring as his new master’s touch.
A Delicious Descent is an MM horror retelling of Dracula, as part of the collaboration Monsters & Mayhem: An MM Horror Collection, adapting some of your favorite classic horror stories with an MM romance twist. Contains MM with sharing, MMM, and brief FF.
