The Extraordinary Adventures of Emma Andrews, Victorian Lady and Vampire Hunter
A young widow with an uncertain inheritance; a mysterious guest with unclear motives; a child in peril; and the dark, rain-lashed moors—all set the mood for this first novel in an historical gothic series in which a Victorian woman discovers that she is a vampire hunter
Twenty-five year old widow Emma Andrews grew up in the shadow of her mother’s madness, so when she arrives at Dulwich manor in the midst of a plague and soon thereafter begins to see apparitions, her family fears fate has finally caught up with her. But one guest among them knows Emma’s visions are more than a trick of the mist. Valerian Fox has hunted the great vampire lord Marius through time and continents, and he knows that Emma’s senses are heightened by a legacy that runs through her blood.
When Emma’s young cousin is marked for death, Emma and Valerian must disregard propriety to prepare for battle. Poised at the intersection of life and death, uncertain of who she can trust, Emma finds that in order to save the most innocent among them she must embrace the inheritance she has feared and denied.

Cover Art - "Descent into Dust" by Jacqueline Lepore
Here is the cover for Descent Into Dust by Jacqueline Lepore, a new historical vampire series that sounds very interesting. Releasing this April. I am not familiar with the author nor could I find a bio or website. A pseudonym perhaps? Anyone know more?
