Hi all! And welcome to another segment of my weekly Wish list! I hope you will like this week’s wishlist
UPDATE: I forgot to include the winner of Dead in the family by Charlaine Harris. Sorry about that:
This week I chose as my Wish list is…Casa Dracula Series by Marta Acosta
Yay! I am excited about this… Its like its been a longtime since I read this series. Well really the first book. I have yet to read the rest of the books in this series. I am hoping to make some time to be re-acquainted with The Casa Dracula novels and glad to know that are more books coming soon.
Anyway here’s the blurb for the first book: Happy Hour at Casa Dracula
Vampires, Cocktails, Mayhem – Casa Dracula Book One
Despite her Fancy University (F.U.) degree, Milagro de los Santos isn’t having much success at life. She can barely pay the rent and all of her boyfriends are as frivolous as beach reads. Then, at a party in honor of her successful ex-boyfriend, she meets the unusually attractive, quirky Oswald Grant.
Who knew that her passionate kiss with Oswald would result in serious illness, a craving for raw meat, and an aversion to sunlight? Well, her ambitious ex knew, and after he attempts to kidnap Milagro, she must hide out with Oswald’s snobby family at their country estate to recover and learn the truth about their mysterious “genetic condition.”
When Oswald and his family are threatened, Milagro uses her wits, her wiles, and a whacky scheme to bring down the power-hungry creeps who refuse to let the undead live in peace.
I actually love this book, the characters of Milagro and Oswald but not as much as love cousin Ian, lol!
Book 2: Midnight Brunch
Secret Rituals, Desert Spas, and Movie Stars – Casa Dracula Book Two
Hip, funny Milagro de los Santos thinks she’s finally found love and a home at the California ranch of fabulous Oswald Grant and his urbane relatives, who have a rare genetic disorder that some call vampirism. But Milagro is bewildered when she’s excluded from an ancient and mysterious midnight ceremony whose participants include Oswald’s unfriendly parents, a creepy family elder, and Milagro’s ex-lover, the powerful and decadent Ian Ducharme. What skeletons are the vampires keeping in their designer closets?
When Milagro’s life is threatened by a rogue family member, she flees to the desert to hide. Instead of solitude, she encounters an egomaniacal actor, a partying heiress, a sly tabloid reporter, and a lavish spa full of dark secrets — all of which might help her find a way home.
Wedding Jitters- Engagement Rings – Sabotage – Casa Dracula Book Three
Milagro and her vampire fiance have announced their wedding date, but her wedding coordinators make her crazy, the Vampire Council interferes, and she keeps running into the too sexy vampire who once saved her life. Is someone trying to make sure Milagro doesn’t walk down the aisle?
Book 4 – Haunting Honeymoon at Casa Dracula coming sometime October 2010.
(I very much hope so, lol!)
