LIKE BLOOD IN RAIN is a stand-alone, short story, Gothic, dark fantasy.
A romance, set in the present day and in ancient history.

IN A BLOODY medieval world of constant war, utterly devoid of human compassion, how can you maintain love?
The answer is, you can't.

And in the present day?
Finding it impossible to maintain a relationship, let alone falling genuinely in love, Tina begins to question the point of it all.
To her, the idea of 'The One' arriving in her life is as likely as that hunky medieval warrior, in that picture over there, leaping out, scooping her up into his arms and riding off with her, sighing into the mist.

Frustrated by her day job, Tina constantly disturbs her friends, and even herself, in her imaginative musings of how to end it all in the most artistic and dramatic way possible.
Reputations matter.

As a curious summer mist rolls off the ragged peaks of the surrounding downland towards the town, there is a delivery to the gallery of fine art where Tina works- a series of four medieval pictures, from abroad.

One of the panels, yet another interpretation of 'Christ Before Pontius Pilate', is unique in that it depicts the role of Pilate, performed by a voivode of the ancient Romanian principality of Wallachia: Vlad III.
Otherwise known as Dracula, The Son of the Dragon.
And Ţepeş, The Impaler.

In a steaming afternoon in the gallery, it is this haunting picture that attracts the lonely and distracted artist's attention.
Tina's lives will never be the same again.

Contains mild sexual content, which is nice, but also disturbing medieval methods of instilling obedience, which isn't.
