Book III of the award-winning Casa Dracula books.
"Acosta's talent is staggering. In each of her Milagro de Los Santos novels, she shows readers all over again just how funny, ridiculous and thoroughly gifted she is at plotting. Top rated." —Romantic Times
Funny, flirty Milagro is having serious problems planning her wedding to fabulous Oswald Grant, MD and vampire. Her future in-laws loathe her, her dog just died, and then her extravagant friend Nancy hijacks the role of wedding coordinator. As if things aren't bad enough, the Vampire Council assigns conniving fashionista Cornelia Ducharme 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 suspicious accidents interferes with the wedding plans. Is Milagro's paranoia justified or is she cracking under the pressure? And why does she keep running into her charismatic ex-lover, depraved aristovamp Ian Ducharme?
"Milagro De Los Santos remains one of the most interesting characters I know, with her quick-wit, sharp tongue, and flirtatious manner. She demands full devotion from the reader, and with me she gets it." —The Spinecracker
"The Bride of Casa Dracula is the fast-paced witty read that we have all come to enjoy from Marta Acosta. Yet it is much more than that...I am on pins and needles waiting for the next installment in one of my new favorite series." —Bitten By Books
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.
