The second featured series is Maidens & Monsters, a 5-novella western historical romantic mystery series centered around five young women, and each book is an old west take on a classic horror/gothic novel - The Phantom of the Opera, Dracula, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and Frankenstein.
