Two delightfully dark tales of Gothic romance from Elizabeth Hunter and Grace Draven.
In A Very Proper Monster, Josephine Shaw spends long nights filling the pages of her Gothic stories with the fantastic and the macabre, unaware that the suitor her father has arranged is one of the dark creatures she's always dreamed. For Tom Dargin, courting an ailing spinster was only one duty in a long life of service to his sire. But after he meets the curious Miss Shaw, will Tom become the seducer or the seduced? Can a love fated to end in tragedy survive a looming grave?
In Gaslight Hades, Nathaniel Gordon walks two worlds - that of the living and the dead. Barely human, he's earned the reputation of a Bonekeeper, the scourge of grave robbers. He believes his old life is over, until one dreary burial he meets the woman he once loved and almost married. Lenore Kenward stands at her father's grave, begging the protection of the mysterious guardian, not knowing he is her lost love. Resolved to keep his distance, Nathaniel is forced to abandon his plan and accompany Lenore on a journey into the mouth of Hell where sea meets sky, and the abominations that exist beyond its barrier wait to destroy them.

One Story Very Good the Second Not So Good
I completely enjoyed the first story A VERY PROPER MONSTER . The development of the relationship between Josie and Tom was profoundly moving plus the changes in Tom's bond with his Master, both were very well written. This is not a story full of blood and battles but strong and entirely elegant. This is the first story I have read by Elizabeth Hunter but it will, by no means, be the last. As I completed the story I had a few tears. A very enjoyable read. Definitely 5 star rating.The second story GASLIGHT HADES, I found a very different prospect. I usually love Grace Draven's writing but I found this story very hard going. It has a very slow start and it took me sometime to understand the images of this different reality. I found it complex and not completely involving. This would be 3 or 4 star rating.
