Her words, her unconventional taste in clothing and interior decorating, and her attitudes symbolize the exotic to traditional Newland. ‘The Blood Countess by Tara Moss is a cool new twist to the traditional tales of supernatural beings. Just when you thought you knew every possible vampire related story; you catch yourself indulging in the captivating plot of this book that effortlessly brings together fashion, New York City socialites, and blood thirsty vampires into one extraordinary tale.’5/5(10).

The Countess fuses biography with storytelling, recounting the real life history of a disturbing woman. Those unfamiliar with Countess Bathory will especially enjoy this retelling of her life, yet the author adds enough with her selection of events and prose to create a compelling read for those of us who have read other Bathory novels/5().

The Countess tells the story of Erzsebet Bathory, a woman from a Hungarian noble family, who is often called Countess Dracula because of all the lives of young women she is said to have taken. The book shows Erzsebet's life from nine years of age to fifty-four.

At first, you can only see small glimpses of her ruthless character/5. The Countess was my very first novel, published in under the title The Autumn Countess. Even at that amazingly young age, I still realized that I should write about something I knew.

The Countess is aided by a police officer, Pruden. The police officer figures heavily in the stories and I would consider him the main character, not the Countess. The Characters in this book are not well developed. Elizabeth Báthory was a Hungarian countess who purportedly tortured and murdered more than young women in the 16th–17th century.

While historical documents seem to support the accusations against her, modern research indicates that Báthory, a powerful woman, might have been the target of politically motivated slander that allowed. “You can’t help but fall in love with Lynsay Sands!” —Christina Dodd New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lynsay Sands trades in highland kilts for lush ballrooms and high-waisted gowns in The Countess, the first in a brand new, sexy, laugh-out-loud funny Regency romance of Julie Garwood, Jill Barnett, and Teresa Medeiros will adore The Countess, and 4/4().
