Synopsis

Pandora English is no ordinary small town orphan. When she’s invited to live with her mysterious Great-Aunt Celia in New York City, she seizes the opportunity to escape her stifling hometown, break from her tragic past and make it as a writer.

Things, however, are not what she is expecting. For starters, her greataunt’s gothic mansion is in a mist-wreathed Manhattan suburb that doesn’t appear on maps. And then there’s Celia herself- a former designer to the stars of Hollywood’s Golden Age – who is elegant, unnaturally young and always wearing a veil.

Pandora lands a job at a fashion magazine and her first assignment is covering the A-list launch of the latest miracle cream, BloodofYouth. But something is not right about the product, nor Athanasia, the drop-dead beautiful face of the brand. It seems there may be a secret ingredient in BloodofYouth, a secret worth killing for…

Funny, sexy, fashionable and just a tiny bit terrifying, The Blood Countess – the first novel in bestselling author Tara Moss’ exciting new Pandora English series – is True Blood meets The Devil Wears Prada in high-fashion fantasy New York.
