 In the legendary Transylvania, a castle belonging to Countess Erzsébet Báthory is discovered. Cameraman Hunter Cole and broadcast journalist Serena Scott arrive to make a documentary about the discovery, and the sinister Hungarian noblewoman, known as the most prolific female serial killer in history.

The two Americans could cope with roughing it in a fifteenth-century castle, with no modern amenities. They can even cope with each other, despite their initial mutual dislike for one another, which gradually turns into a mind-blowing attraction.

But when two girls are tortured and killed in Báthory copycat style, the nearby village is shaken to the core. In terror, they wonder who will be next...

Author’s Note

Erzsébet Báthory (1560-1614) is a known historical figure and was a Hungarian countess, also known as Elizabeth Báthory, The Blood Countess or Countess Dracula. She has been labeled the most prolific serial killer in history, being responsible for the torture and murder of hundreds of young girls. The exact number of her victims is unknown, but is estimated at six hundred and fifty. It is speculated that she kept a diary with the names of all her victims, but if such a document exists, it has never been made public.

*This work is entirely fiction.


REVIEWS

"The author shines when describing atmosphere, not just in the old, decrepit castle, but also in the nearby village. There's a palpable sense of isolation for both characters, contradicted only by the growing bond between them. Fans of mystery novels, especially ones with a lot of romance and historic twists, will definitely enjoy this book." - IND'TALE MAGAZINE

"I felt as if I was in the Carpathians, in a small village, with amazing characters. Melinda is a brilliant writer who has an amazingly clean writing style and a sexy mind." - Louis Romano, bestselling author

"While I've enjoyed all of Melinda De Ross's books, The Diary is in a class of its own." - Susanne Matthews, bestselling author

"The permanent sexual tension between Hunter and Serena was magically erotic." - Purple Iris, international author

REVIEWS

"An enchanting tale of travel, adventure, and love." - InD'Tale Magazine

"If you enjoy Jackie Collins, you will love CELEBRITY!" - Editorial Review

"This gutsy woman won't be broken as she sets out to remake her life Hollywood style. A MUST-READ!" - Susanne Matthews, international bestselling author


A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

They say 7 is a magic number. Since this is my 7th novel, released on November 7th, and it took 7 months to write, I tend to agree. During this time I was engrossed in the journey of my heroine, in the glamorous Hollywood life, where the general motto is "live fast, die young". 
However, few people know this book was inspired by one of my previous novels, The Diary. To me it is such a powerful book I would love to see it turned into a movie one day, and Celebrity includes how I imagined The Diary would come to life on screen. If you enjoy this book, I hope you will also check out The Diary and find out what inspired me so much. To entice your curiosity further, I've included an excerpt from The Diary on the last pages of this book. Enjoy!
