Hilarious party girl and writer Milagro De Los Santos is finally in a serious relationship with a fabulous man, Oswald Grant, MD, and living at his wine country ranch with his career-fixated relatives. It’s true that Oswald accidentally infected her with the rare family condition that makes them crave blood cocktails and need protection from the sun, but what family doesn’t have it’s quirks?
She thought they accepted her, so she’s hurt when she’s excluded from a midnight ceremony with special guests including a creepy family elder, Oswald’s hostile parents, and Milagro’s ex-lover, decadent and powerful Ian Ducharme.
When Milagro’s life is threatened, she flees to the desert to hide and work on a screenplay. Instead of solitude, she encounters an egomaniacal actor, a partying socialite, a sly tabloid reporter, and a lavish spa full of dark secrets. It’s all lots of fun until the bwaa-ha-ha laughter and the knives come out. Now all Milagro has to do is finish her screenplay, ambush a world domination movement, and overcome a terrible infection before she can make her way back to Casa Dracula.
In this wonderfully funny, romantic and sexy Casa Dracula book 3, Mil is thrown into crazy new adventures and dangerous intrigues while trying to plan her wedding to her fabulous vampire fiance.
Writer/gardener/party girl Milagro De Los Santos is having serious problems planning her wedding to fabulous Oswald Grant, MD, who has a “genetic condition” that makes him crave blood and intolerant of direct sunlight. Milagro’s future mother-in-law loathes her, her dog just died, and then her extravagant friend Nancy hijacks the role of wedding coordinator. As if things weren’t bad enough, the Vampire Council assigns conniving Cornelia Ducharme, the sister of Milagro’s ex-lover, to supervise the couple through ancient wedding traditions.
Meanwhile, Milagro’s reduced to ghostwriting the memoirs of a loony little man who claims to be a shapeshifter. A series of accidents interferes with the wedding plans and Milagro fears that someone’s out to get her…again. Is her paranoia justified or is she cracking under the pressure? And why does she keep running into her too attractive ex-lover, dangerously sexy Ian Ducharme?
Milagro De Los Santos is forced to take another ghostwriting job for hoaxer Don Pedro when she can’t pay her condo fees. Her romantic life isn’t much better. She’s conflicted about her fling with Vampire Council member Ian Ducharme and still yearning for her ex-fiancé, Dr. Oswald Grant and her life at his wine-country ranch.
When Ian’s flirtations with a pretty neighbor infuriate Milagro, she travels to London, and the blood really hits the fan. People around her are dying grisly deaths, and Milagro’s framed for murder. She escapes to Oswald’s ranch, but an accident gives her amnesia and she forgets her entire existence as the only human survivor of a vampire infection. Will Milagro make all the same mistakes, or will she discover the real killers and finally get to use the Margaritanator 3000 at her wedding reception?
She’s the girl you love to hate because she has it all–looks, wealth, status, and far too much self-confidence. So when snooty young Nancy Carrington-Chambers flees her hardworking, but “not fabulous enough” husband for a chic San Francisco apartment and starts an event planning company, Froth, everyone is hoping for her to fail.
She hires the perfect assistant–Derek is gorgeous, British, and gay. He listens attentively to her opinions on fashion and people. Together they know they can turn society’s dreariest gala into the most exciting party of the year. Nancy’s quest for a perfectly stylish life is derailed by her growing attraction to Derek and the arrival of her irresponsible cousin’s child on her doorstep. The child insists on wearing capes and can’t understand basic fashion rules such as “Less is more.”
Nancy’s life begins to change in ways she’d never imagined. But she discovers too late that her husband isn’t as complacent as he seemed and her carefully constructed world crashes down all at once. Nancy learns that real style takes risks, but is she willing to give up everything she values for those she’s come to love?
Also, does she really have to make a fruitcake for the reception, or are the vampires just messing with her head?
