'The Lady of the House of Love' is set in Transylvania, Romania, in 1914, just before the outbreak of World War One.  A place synonymous with one thing - vampires - it is a landscape which lends itself well to such a dark tale.  There is also the abiding shadow of the terrifying Vlad the Impaler, a person who would inspire a shudder even if the character of Dracula had never been created.  The region is surrounded on the east and west by the Carpathian mountains
