The bride of Casa Dracula
Marta Acosta
Adult Fiction ACOSTA

Comments  Summary  Excerpt  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

Marrying into a vampire family is tough, as Milagro De Los Santos learns in this charmingly goofy marriage of chick lit and the supernatural. Milagro, having been infected with vampire blood, is now engaged to her beloved undead beau, Oswald Grant, but the nuptial-planning hits a hitch when the rules committee of the vampire council demands that she renounce her citizenship. Not only does hot-blooded Milagro have a battle in store for her when she stands by her American roots, she's beginning to suspect the council of trying to sabotage her wedding: her assigned wedding planner is cruel and devious, her wedding ring goes missing, she nearly dies in a suspicious car accident and there are a few too many "chance" meetings with her seductive vampire ex-boyfriend. All ends well, but not in the way you might think. Acosta (Happy Hour at Casa Dracula) takes a bite out of the bridal circuit with this loopy, whimsical tale. (Sept.) Copyright 2008 Reed Business Information.

From Library Journal:

Brash, witty Milagro de los Santos (Midnight Brunch; Happy Hour at Casa Dracula) has become so involved with the vampire community that she is now engaged to one of its members, the handsome plastic surgeon Oswald Grant. Because she is considered an outsider, Milagro must pass inspection by the Council. Knowing her penchant for stubbornness, Oswald convinces her to accept whatever is asked so that the wedding can proceed without interference. She agrees, even acquiescing to having the sultry, slightly trashy Cornelia as the coordinator of the secret vampire marriage ritual. Meanwhile the public wedding planner is best bud Nancy, an upper-class airhead and fashionista whose offbeat look at the world gives her some of the funniest lines in this humorous paranormal tale. At the same time, Milagro finds herself torn between her fiance and the ultrasexy hunk Ian; a loony professor hires her to ghostwrite his memoirs; and someone is desperately trying to stop the wedding. Fans of light vampire fiction will snap this up. Recommended for all collections where urban fantasy is popular.--Patricia Altner, Biblioinfo.com, Columbia, MD (c) Copyright 2010.
