Barnabas, Quentin and the Vampire Beauty is the thirty-second and final of the novels written by Marilyn Ross as part of a separate continuity. An evil doctor turns a model into a vampire and Julia Hoffman attempts to cure both her and Barnabas.

Publisher's summary Edit

While on a ski vacation in Switzerland, beautiful model Adele Marriot meets Dr Stefen Soivak. He tells her of his discovery of an operating technique that will keep her forever thin. Adele agrees to have the operation and enters the doctor's clinic.

Once there Adele realizes she is virtually a prisoner. Against her will, she undergoes the operation. When she recovers she find she has been used for the evil purposes. To cure one of his wealthy vampire patients, the evil doctor has turned Adele herself into one of the living dead.

Adele manages to escape and flees to Collinwood to gain help of Barnabas and Quentin Collins. Little does she realize that by doing so she places herself and her two friends in the worst danger of their strange lives.
