What if you could prove that the greatest Gothic horror novel of all time was a true story?
Dexter and Morgan meet on their eighteenth birthday. The attraction is instant but confusing. As they deal with coming out, they are bound together by more than first love.
Both keep diaries, and each has the same goal - to prove that Stoker didn't write 'Dracula'. They are convinced that Harker, Van Helsing and the others existed and wrote the novel's journals themselves. If Dex and Morgan can prove it, they will blow the lid off the vampire myth: Dracula existed.
As the two teenagers fall in love, so they fall into an adventure as thrilling as it is dangerous. They are being watched, and someone is willing to kill to stop them from making 'The Stoker Connection.'
The Stoker Connection is an MM Romance treasure hunt thriller. It draws on the original text of 'Dracula', but it is not a story about vampires. It is a story of first love and the power of friendship. Sometimes funny, it is an intriguing and honest account compiled from Dex and Morgan's original diaries.

Two young men meet each other on their 18th birthdays, both trying to prove the theory that Bram Stoker's book about Dracula was factual rather than fiction and a diary rather than a novel. The story is full of coincidences. Firstly that the boys Dexter and Morgan were born on the same day and secondly they are researching the same topic. However somebody does not want them to prove their theories and along the way the people they want to talk to either disappear or turn up dead. As the coincidences keep mounting so does their friendship and feelings for each other.
An enjoyable story with just the right amount of creepiness.
