It begins in our time with a rescue at sea.

"

Black Magic Sanction by Kim Harrison
Rachel Morgan has fought and hunted vampires, werewolves, banshees, demons, and other supernatural dangers as both witch and bounty hunter--and lived to tell the tale. But she's never faced off against her own kind . . . until now. Denounced and shunned for dealing with demons and black magic, her best hope is life imprisonment--her worst, a forced lobotomy and genetic slavery. Only her enemies are strong enough to help her win her freedom. But trust comes hard when it hinges on the unscrupulous tycoon Trent Kalamack, the demon Algaliarept, and a lowlife ex-boyfriend-turned-thief. 

Covenant with the Vampire by Jeanne Kalogridis
On the death of his father, Arkady Tsepesh returns to Transylvania from England to take over the family estate. Part of his job is to provide his great uncle, Vlad Dracula, with appetizing visitors lured from abroad. But Tsepesh has a wife, complicating matters. (worldcat.org)
