Vienna, 1793. A desperate Countess, pennyroyal tea and a mysterious visitor with a killer bite.
Being a woman is bloody business.
Countess Maria Carolina von Lamberg is determined to end her pregnancy. Two years ago, she gave
birth to a stillborn son and nearly died in childbirth, a trauma that she never fully recovered from. And
while it means that she will not give her husband, Karl, a male heir, Maria Carolina is not about to risk
her life for a man who cannot let go of the memory of his beloved first wife. When her best friend
Elisabeth refuses to help, Maria Carolina finds herself entangled with Count Liliac, a newcomer to
Vienna who seems to have exactly what she needs. But no favor comes without a price. A prequel to
Dracula, THE THIRD BRIDE is a female narrative of the vampire legend, exploring what it means to be a
mother and the lengths women will go to in order to reclaim agency over their own bodies.
