The Bride of Casa Dracula (Casa Dracula, #3)The Bride of Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Milagro De Los Santos is having serious problems planning her wedding to fabulous Oswald Grant, M.D. Her future in-laws loathe her, her dog just died, and Oswald's family has a genetic anomaly that makes them crave blood. Then her extravagant best friend hijacks the role of wedding coordinator, and the secretive Vampire Council assigns conniving Cornelia Ducharme to guide the couple through the ancient vampire marriage rituals.

To top it all off, Milagro's career is on the skids. She's reduced to ghost-writing the memoirs of a loony little man who claims to be a shape-shifter. And why does Cornelia's decadent, way too attractive brother, Ian, always show up whenever Milagro is away from Oswald? When a series of accidents interferes with wedding plans, Oswald worries that Milagro is cracking under the pressure. Is she just paranoid, or is a hidden enemy trying to make sure Milagro doesn't wed the undead.

The Bride of Casa Dracula


My Thoughts and Review

I just love this series it is fantastic! The characters are very engaging, some are humorous, some funny., while some have a  very sharp tongue and others just down right dangerous !If you ever have read Charlaine Harris and her Sookie Stakehouse series or Gerry Bartlett with her Vampire series featuring Glory this series is very similar to those series.

Milagro has decided to married Oswald Grant her current beau and maker.The problem is that the council wants her to jump hoops and give up certain rights like renounce her citizenship and also be part of a vampire traditional wedding ceremony to become a member of there elite group and will be then granted there protection.The things that they want her to do for this ceremony are medieval but, one she has a very hard time with is no sex until the wedding.

While ghost writing a book getting ready for a wedding and registering for wedding gifts Milagro is just drained.Shes lost her dog but, recently met a wolf how has taken an interest in her.Things start happening like missing engagement ring, someone trying to cause her to have a car crash and other upsetting incidences.Oswald thinks she is imagining that someone is out to harm her.Oswald thinks its nerves but, Milagro someone wants her dead. She starts spending time with her previous lover Ian know as the Dark Lord and the sparks sizzle whenever next to him.Ian wants Milagro for himself and pleads with him to be with him instead but, her course is set with Oswald.

Milagro with have to choose between the two men she loves the only thing is she needs to remain alive to do it !

Quite the page turner ! The book had everything we look for Romance, Laughs, Danger, Suspense and great characters with a interesting storyline!

A Must Read! Recommending this book and the other in this series for your reading pleasure!
