Synopses & Reviews
Latina Ivy League grad Milagro de Los Santos can't find her place in the world or a man to go with it. Then one night, at a book party for her pretentious ex-boyfriend, she meets an oddly attractive man. After she is bitten while kissing him, she falls ill and is squirreled away to his family's estate to recover. Vampires don't exist in this day and age or do they? As Milagro falls for a fabulously inappropriate man, she finds herself caught between a family who has accepted her as one of their own and a shady organization that refuses to let the undead live and love in peace.
"Marta Acosta's vampire story reads like a comedy of manners with fangs, or perhaps a rancho romance with bite, but either way, her narrator Milagro brings a spicy Latina voice to a genre that is in dire need of some new blood." Christopher Moore, author of Bloodsucking Fiends and NY Times Bestseller A Dirty Job
"Stunning, darkly hilarious...Acosta flings every vampire cliché out the window. You'd have to be undead not to enjoy this book!" Julia Spencer-Fleming, author of To Darkness And To Death
"A cross between Bridget Jones's Diary and Interview with a Vampire." Latina Magazine
"A fun, snappy read for romantic fantasy fans." Booklist
Acosta delivers a hilarious and sexy paranormal novel about a Latina young woman who finds love and acceptance among a family of sophisticated vampires.
