Have I mentioned how much I love books lately? Well, I do. One of the greatest things about books is that what doesn’t ‘work’ for one reader will very likely work for many others. I’m guessing that’s probably the case with “The Bride of Casa Dracula” by Marta Acosta. This is Acosta’s third book starring Milagro De Los Santos. I think it would be beneficial to read the first two books to get a little more of the ‘back story’. Milagro was made a vampire against her will and is somewhat of a miracle as so few survive the ‘change’. She is not exactly your ‘average’ vampire and doesn’t have any desire to ‘feed’ on humans. Milagro is very happy now that she’s about to marry into the family she’s grown to love. Her own childhood was a nightmare with a horrible mother and her yearning for love and a family is finally coming to fruition. She is, however, having difficulty with the thought of a ‘blood exchange’ with her husband-to-be although she’s already had some of his blood in a life-threatening event in an earlier book, she’s really not a human blood kind of gal…she’d much rather get her already bagged from animals! Milagro is having a few problems. For instance: she keeps running into Ian who she’s incredibly attracted to, her best buddy has fired her wedding planners and intends to do the job herself, her ‘wedding counselor’ assigned by the vamp council is her hubby-to-be’s EX, she has to learn how and sew robes for a ‘real’ vamp wedding, the vamp council wants her to swear loyalty to them instead of the US, and it seems that someone is trying to kill her! As if planning a wedding isn’t stressful enough! I don’t know if it’s my age, my lineage, or my vocabulary, but I just didn’t ‘get’ this book. There were certainly places where I found myself laughing out loud, but there were more places where I found myself hopelessly unamused and wondering what the author intended. I didn’t find Milagro intelligent, or very likeable. The villain of the piece was clear to me from the get go and it became very irritating when Milagro kept ‘missing it’. It was also very obvious that Milagro was more enamored of her fiance’s family than the man himself so I quit caring about the whole wedding issue fairly early. And I found Milagro and her friends more of an unflattering and unpleasant Latino parody than anything else. I’m hoping that was the author’s intention. “The Bride of Casa Dracula” would probably appeal to a younger audience and one more in tune with Latino culture. I’m pretty sure that if the author, Marta Acosta, were not Latina, they would be lambasted for their unflattering portrayal of the culture. BUT, having said that, I can see how this would be a scream for those more comfortable than I. So, if you like a bit of Latina flavor with your paranormal chicklit, then pick up a copy (of the first book, please) and enjoy!

    Crossposted at Booklikes. To give this one star is perhaps a little unfair, but that's the way I roll most times when I drop a book. The book has been edited, so it isn't one of those typo works from hell. It might appeal to someone reading this review. It's an urban fantasy chick lit. However, I think I have reached my limit with (1) female central characters who are super, super special (2) said female character flirts with all the men who love her but (3) all the women look down at her.

Her eccentric characters are alive with charm and style. Milagro De Los Santos is an aspiring author who is soon to be wed to the man of her dreams, plastic surgeon Oswald Grant. The problem is Oswald comes from a long line of `vampires' and to marry they must resolve problems with parents, murder attempts and the secretive Vampire Council. To make things more stressful, Milagro is reunited with Ian, the handsome debonair vampire who has been pursuing her and Milagro finds, to her dismay that she may not want to run. This book is filled with zany escapades, as feisty Milagro seems to find herself in wacky to serious situations wherever she goes. The off the wall characters make this read a non-stop ride. If you are looking for a fun read that is full of laughter and enjoy a spirited heroine, with unconventional appeal, this is the book for you! The only small disappointment with the story for me is that it ended rather abruptly and unresolved. That is to say, it is not a typical ending and seems to imply there will be another book in the series. But if you love this series, this will not be a problem since you will want to read more anyway! Reviewed by Steph at Bookaholics Romance Book Club

    I really liked the first two books in this series but I didn't like the direction this book took the series (view spoiler)[Milagro and Oswald break up setting up a Milagro/Ian relationship (hide spoiler)] . That said there was still a lot of the humor and snappy dialog that I loved in the other books. I would recommend the book to everyone who likes the series. I imagine there are quite a few people who will like the direction this book took.

    great twist with the wedding. The pull with Ian is always there for Milagro. what a change in her, for the better in many aspects. More serious (more danger) then the first 2 books, but the story flows well from one book to the next.

    Not what I thought would happen in this book. I'd assumed everything was rosy but it seems as the book goes on that thing just wont go to plan for poor old Milagro and most of this is down to herself. Still a great read with interesting characters and a page turning plot and I really hope the next book does things as well.

    Milagro De Los Santos is flying high. She is engaged to the love of her life, Oswald Grant. She has a ghost-writing project to keep her busy and a firm grasp on her red-coloured cravings. Never mind that she and Oswald are fighting constantly, minus any make-up sex since the vampire council has banned copulation until the wedding. She is writing a memoir for Don Pedro, a self-proclaimed shapeshifter who also happens to be a complete nutbar. And Milagro’s blood cravings are only under control when Milagro De Los Santos is flying high. She is engaged to the love of her life, Oswald Grant. She has a ghost-writing project to keep her busy and a firm grasp on her red-coloured cravings. Never mind that she and Oswald are fighting constantly, minus any make-up sex since the vampire council has banned copulation until the wedding. She is writing a memoir for Don Pedro, a self-proclaimed shapeshifter who also happens to be a complete nutbar. And Milagro’s blood cravings are only under control when she’s not around her ex-beau Ian Ducharme. . . the man who makes her blood fizz and her chichis ache. But apart from that everything is fine. . . The first two books in the series were all about our protagonist, Milagro De Los Santos, wanting to fit in. Milagro wanted to fit into her fiancées family and to be a part of the vampire society she had been infected into. But this third book is about what happens when the square peg has been rammed into the round hole. . . “So you ate your pomegranate seed, but now you are not content to be queen of the underworld?” Ian asked. Marta Acosta has some powerful writing juju going on in this third instalment of the ‘Casa Dracula’ series. Ms. Acosta draws on some fabulous references throughout ‘Bride’; rapid-fire allusions that swirl within the text and enrich the paranormal. Oswald and Milagro’s pre-marital struggles feel like a head-nod to Pygmalion, with Oswald as Henry Higgins trying to change his flower-girl into a lady she’s not. On a baser level it felt as though Milagro was a wolf trying to be tamed. Milagro’s ex-lover and still-crush, Ian Ducharme, plays a vital role in this third book. . . even more so when his wacko sister, Cornelia Ducharme, comes to help plan Milagro and Oswald’s wedding. Ms. Acosta has said that she drew on Henry and Mary Crawford of Jane Austen’s ‘Mansfield Park’ for the characters of Ian and Cornelia. The Austen hat-tip is wonderful and befitting these twisted siblings, even more so when the Ducharme’s layers are peeled back. Cornelia Ducharme reminded me of Daisy Buchanan, and in fact the Grant mansion prompted me to think of Gatsby’s sprawling estate. . . even more so for the nostalgia Milagro feels for her first few months living with the Grant’s. I also couldn’t help but think that Milagro was Ian’s green light at the end of the dock. The exploration of duality is explored when shapeshifters are introduced to the Casa Dracula universe. Then there’s the Greek mythology and the story of Persephone. Pomegranate seeds permeate the text – both literally and metaphorically. Milagro as Persephone caught between two worlds, always trying to live in both but belonging to neither. This theme is encapsulated in Milagro’s choice between two men – sweetheart Oswald and bad-boy Ian. And furthermore by Milagro's wish for all the normal things; love, family, white picket fence... while she's also desperate to fit into the hush-hush vampire society. The duality conflict has been a staple of all the Casa Dracula books. The series is first and foremost a comedy-of-manners, and Ms. Acosta has always explored social niceties and hierarchies via Milagro’s Latina heritage. This has been one of my favourite aspects of the Casa Dracula series - that for all its paranormal tagging, the books have also been an exploration of modern bigotry. It’s not just vampires who are society outcasts. . . Milagro has been referred to as a common Mexican girl; she has been relegated to the maid’s quarters and been the ‘odd one out’ in her group of blonde-haired blue-eyed university friends. Ms. Acosta has written some corker observations about Mexican Americans and their standing in society, like this comment made by Milagro’s friend, Nancy: “Oh, darling, everyone’s using Spanglish. How else would you communicate with household staff?” Acosta writes laugh-out-loud, so-wrong-it’s-right social observations that keep me thinking and chortling throughout the book. One of my favourite things about this third book is the romance. Right from book one Milagro has been caught between two men – the safe and steady Oswald, and the dark and brooding Ian Ducharme. I have always been Team Ian, and my reasons felt justified by his appearance in this book; I said. “I do hope we can continue to be friends.” I didn’t expect him to burst into laughter, but he did, and I snapped. “What is so damn funny?” When he finally stopped laughing, he looked more relaxed and said, “You and your attempts to be polite.” “You think I’m incapable of fitting in with your swanky society pals?” He stepped forward and took my hand. At his touch, a hot fizz went through my body. He looked into my eyes and asked softly, “Why are you so eager to be like everyone else when you’re Milagro De Los Santos?” I don’t want to say how the book ends because it concerns Milagro’s final, romantic decision. I will say that the love triangle is solved, beautifully and messily. I cried. . . but I won’t say if it was tears of joy or frustration. But I will say it was an ending that left me panting for the fourth and final book ‘Haunted Honeymoon’.

Paperback, 286 pages ISBN 1416559639 (ISBN13: 9781416559634) The Bride of Casa Dracula series 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!

For all those who loved Helen Fielding’s Bridget Jones Diary and Anne Rice’s Interview with the Vampire either the books or the films, and then you are sure to enjoy this as I place it as a mix between those two. I was browsing the library the other day , as I am absolutely in love with books on Vamps and Werewolves , and came across a book just released titled The Bride of Casa Dracula , It is set in the desert of Mexico and stars Latino Author Milagro De Los Santos ( Very Latin-American name) and her fiancé Oswald Grant M.D. As they prepare for their wedding, they come across and face-to-face with a number of obstacles. The first and major one is that Oswald is a Vampire and Milagro in the face of death was saved by a Vampire, has become a hybrid of human and vampire. To top this all off her future in-laws absolutely despise her, her poor companion Daisy has died, her mother Regina can’t stand her. To make matters worse in the prior months of her wedding, Milagro is presented with an invitation to appear in front of the “Vampire Council”. In which, they must decide whether or not she is suitable to become a vampire’s wife. For Milagro this decision is easier said than done, as she has lived most of her life as a human, and her college friends have arrived and taken the wedding planning into their own hands. Further on in the book , you start to get the feeling are Oswald and Milagro going to get their happy ending as chaos arises from one thing or another. This book faces obstacles from those awful car-brakes getting cut to old and new flames. As things get worse and worse, the cracks between Oswald and Milagro start to seep and we are left thinking is Milagro paranoid or is somebody out there willing to pull all the stops to make sure she doesn’t wed the undead?. Also featured inside the book , in case you wish to use it as a book club read is a couple of pages filled with discussion questions , a conversation with the author Marta Acosta and a preview to her first book Happy Hour at Casa Dracula. Christopher Moore acclaimed that this book is “a spicy comedy of manners and fangs”. Anyone who loves that down-to-earth attitude with a twist of vampire blood to it .This is a Fang-tastic Read.

Or from his Mother. Oh, and Ian isn't very happy about it, either. But, our Milagro knows what she wants and is determined to get it. So she dutifully heads off (alone—Oswald has to work, of course!) to the east coast to meet with the Council and get their approval. She arrives at the hotel to find her reservation has been cancelled and her college friend Toodles is down with the flu. Then, in a shocking turn of events (she said knowingly), Ian just happens to be in the city as well. He comes to her rescue (again) by providing a place to stay and taking her out for supper. Fortunately, Ian's new girlfriend Ilena is there, so Milagro is not tempted to jump all over him (even though she really wants to). When she returns to Casa Dracula, it's with the news that the Council is still deliberating and they want her and Oswald to practice celibacy until the wedding, which is not for 3 more months! Oh, and they want her to swear loyalty and fealty to the Vampire Nation and renounce the USA. O.o You've got to wonder how Milagro gets herself into these fixes. Needless to say, she is very unhappy about the whole celibacy thing. And there's no way she's going to give up her American citizenship. And really, this kind of stress is the last thing she needs, what with her writing career going nowhere fast and poor Daisy, her beloved dog, dying. But she soldiers on, because that is what our Milagro does, and even though fate seems to keep shoving her back two steps for every three she takes forward, she is bound and determined to make this wedding come to pass. Or is it fate? Some of these supposedly coincidental coincidences seem awfully convenient. And the more they happen, the more it appears that poor Milagro has gone 'round the bend. I thoroughly enjoyed this instalment of the Adventures of the Miracle of the Saints at Casa Dracula. Marta Acosta has proven yet again that she knows what she is doing—and that's write an engaging, funny, appealing, and memorable romantic comedy. This series is a definite keeper.

Milagros is an aspiring writer who has been burned by her pretentions ex-boyfriend. One night during a literary event for his new book, she meets Oswald and is instantly captivated.

That is where she finds out that Oswald and his family are Vampires, even though the churn the term and prefer to treat their condition as an allergy to the sun and iron deficiency that makes them drink animal blood cocktails. Milagros is a spit-fire Latina and I love her for it. She is so different from the regular UF heroine that you can’t help but fall prey to her wits and crazy ways. She takes to Oswald’s family and embraces their “Vampire” culture wholeheartedly, not to mention that she completely embraces Oswald himself! The Casa Dracula series is not a Paranormal Romance, it doesn’t follow the HEA of one couple through a book, it is a Comedic Urban Fantasy series that definitely has Romance elements and even thought Milagros does get her HEA, the ending might surprise you. I’m sad this series is over and I’ll miss all the characters, from Oswald’s grandmother and her sharp tongue to the worldly Ian and his sex-appeal. I hope Marta gets a chance to write a new series with Milagros and her man’s adventures! I would totally read that! If you are an Urban Fantasy fan and feels like you need some new blood *snicker* in the genre, you should definitely read this series, I can’t recommend it enough! =D

And I love the way Ilena speaks... Milagro has a literary agent, even though Jason's not convinced he can sell her work: "There's no market for political horror novels. There will never, ever be a market for them." You're wrong, Jason - I'd love to read political horror! Of course, one person doesn't make a market, but still... At least Milagro has work to throw herself into as a distraction from her personal life. She's writing a "fauxoir" (faux memoir) of the extravagant Don Pedro Nascimento, a self-proclaimed shape-shifter and chronic hallucinogen abuser. Though it's all made up, Milagro's actually having quite fun with it. (The joys of fiction...) And make sure to remember Grant matriarch Edna's pearl of wisdom: "Who can we trust if we can't trust eccentrics who seek ghost-writers for their shape-shifting memoirs?" Highly quotable, this third book is the best in the series, and a suitable prelude to Nancy's Theory of Style, to be released in 2009. My word, Nancy's annoying, but she does make for interesting reading...

    Once this arrived at my house, I ripped into this like a toddler expecting a Betsy Wetsy doll on Christmas Day. I'd been jonesing pretty hard for my Milagro fix and to see how the story would bridge how we left off in book 2 and where Milagro ends up in book 4. I think that knowing how things would eventually end up in the series' end helped me get through book 3, as otherwise I might have had my little heart broken.

I'd been jonesing pretty hard for my Milagro fix and to see how the story would bridge how we left off in book 2 and where Milagro ends up in book 4. I think that knowing how things would eventually end up in the series' end helped me get through book 3, as otherwise I might have had my little heart broken. Like previous reviews, I have to say that Milagro really is the Hispanic Bridget Jones, only a little less of a ditz. Not by much, but a little. I mean this with all fondness, as there's a reason that so many people have latched onto Ms Jones as one of their literary heroines. Like Bridget, Milagro represents a sort of every-woman type of character. She's sweet, earnest, and asks a lot of the questions that we probably would if we were in her shoes. However unlike some of the other supernatural heroines out there, she doesn't start kicking rump as soon as she starts becoming something otherworldly. This makes for an interesting twist, as the main thrust of the series and this book in particular is just Milagro adapting to a new society and expectations. To take a page from Milagro's book, I imagine that this was done to draw a parallel to how many people from various races and ethnicities feel when they find themselves in a new country and have to make a decision concerning how much (or if) they will adapt and conform to their new surroundings and situations. I really can't describe how much I enjoyed this book. I'm a little sad that now I'm coming up on book 4, which looks to be the end of Milagro's adventures, but so far I'm really loving this series as a whole and book 3 was no exception. Our heroine makes many of the same mistakes here as she did in prior books, but you can see where she's growing a little wiser and a little more comfortable with declaring her own interests and not letting people continue to walk all over her.

    First I have to post what Acosta herself called her books: comedies-of-manners, or romantic comedies with lots of chaos, confusion, charming villains, eccentrics, and flirting. Which really fits since this is not the normal kind of paranormal romance. Far from it. I just want to called it a witty romantic comedy involving humans who like blood and as Acosta said lots of flirting. Read her books! Lol, honestly they are so funny.

I just want to called it a witty romantic comedy involving humans who like blood and as Acosta said lots of flirting. Read her books! Lol, honestly they are so funny. I just love Milagros, she is witty, she has curves, she flirts, she has opinions and I think I really would enjoy having her as a friend. Her men, oh I do like Oswald but, yes there is that but, he is just so nice and normal. Can he truly keep up with this crazy Latina when he is just so waspy. But she does love him and is marrying him and he does do a great job keeping up with her. But then there is goddamn Ian Ducharme as Oswald calls him. He is like fine wine, ok forget since I hate wine. He is like a yummy chocolate that melts in your mouth and makes you crave more and more. He makes you blood pump in your veins and he is just delicious. And he wants her *faints*. Right the story, well as I said they are getting married and making preparations. She has to deal with the council who does not approve of her since she is the only human who was turned (a little mistake) and lived. And someone is after her. She is also ghost-writing for a freaky guy. All as is should be in Milagros universe. All in all a highly enjoyable book. Conclusion: Just read it, come one you know you want to! Start with book 1, you will not be sorry. You will smile, laugh and hopefully think Ian is as delicious as I find him. The book is witty and so just impossible to put down. I do wonder what happens in book 4, I mean..ohhhhhhhhh. Rating: I do think I made it clear. Read it :) I could not put it down.

A main character's transformation is key to a winning series, because it establishes growth and depth to the character...whether you agree with their changes or not. The Bride at Casa Dracula really showcases Milagro's adaptation to her new life, and wonder where that might put her in the future. Milagro is preparing for her upcoming wedding to Oswald, but everything isn't going as she imagined. Edna has left the ranch to galavant vacation with her actor boyfriend, Daisy is gone, the Council has her running through hoops to prepare for their traditional ceremony, and Oswald is working harder than ever before trying to keep up with the demands of his growing practice. This leaves Milagro by herself a lot, which is not necessarily a bad thing. It creates an opportunity for both her and the audience to finally answer some questions/doubts. I enjoyed watching her wander through these tough truths. There are a couple new characters to surprise you in this story, and each are mysterious and interesting. The surprises they have in store for Milagro (and the reader) keep the series intriguing and the reader constantly guessing. The plot is fast-paced and I'm pretty sure I read this book the fastest yet... I just HAD to know. Bottom line: Non-stop emotions, and questions, and head-scratching. Fans will love where this takes you.

    I really enjoyed reading this trilogy. This 3rd installment had an ending that at first I was unhappy with, but the more I thought about it the more I realized it was the perfect ending. Milagro is engaged to Oswald. His vampire family is working to get her rights within their world. She has been given blood twice by 2 different vamps. Oswald in book one and the slight blood exchange nearly killed her. When she gets knifed trying to protect Ian, he gives her large quantities of his blood and sea I really enjoyed reading this trilogy.

His vampire family is working to get her rights within their world. She has been given blood twice by 2 different vamps. Oswald in book one and the slight blood exchange nearly killed her. When she gets knifed trying to protect Ian, he gives her large quantities of his blood and seals the fatal wound with more of his blood. He worries if this will kill her or save her. She survives, but with some powers she would prefer not to have. For example, anyone she touches or whoever touches her, she sees visions, and most of them are very dark. So she can no longer have sex with Oswald. He suggests latex gloves (he is a Dr after all). But she doesn't like that it would really limit them. He suggests blood exchanges, and she says no. After the knifing she can't bear the thought of being cut again. Her preppy and dippy friend from college decides to be Milagro's wedding planner. Then the vampire council decides she has to have a vamp wedding as well. Ian's sister is assigned as the vamp wedding coordinator. Accidents start happening - her engagement ring goes missing, the car she is driving goes over a cliff, her wedding dress is ruined and the tunic she had to make for the vamp ceremony is too small. And she can't get over her attraction to Ian - the Dark Lord, though she knows they are just too wrong for each other. Add in shape shifters, mistaken identities, and Milagro's dislike of the vampire council, can there be a happily ever after for Milagro? Read the book to find out!

I have confidence thou that the author will wrap things up and give everyone their H.E.A. This book revolves around the planning of Milagro's wedding to Oswald. While I liked them together and felt that they could have been happy eventually, they were not meant to be. Oswald is never around and is more dedicated to pleasing people, keeping up appearances and working at a job he is dedicated to to really devote himself to Milagro and their relationship. Meanwhile Milagro just wants to belong and have a family, she doesn't need or want the type of life that Oswald things he needs to give her, she just wants him. I think that he was also partially with her out of guilt for bringing her into this new world and felt like he was obliged to take care of her, but that really isn't reason's or a good ground to build a lifetime together. Then there is Ian, who I feel really does love Milagro and doesn't want to change a thing about her, accepts her for who she is. There has always been chemistry between them, and I'm not really sure what Milagro's hang up is over him. I think they could be really happy together. He is also there for her and spend more time around her than Oswald. In the end I think it was best that Milagro and Oswald split, sure both of them are hurt, they both truly loved on another. After they heal and in time I think that Oswald will see that it really was for the best.

It was her dream come true, until it's not... I cannot believe the surprises that I got from this book!!! I finished the book at 12mn, mouth hanging open, sighing and grinning like an idiot. I was shocked at the turn of events, sad that it happened and relieved at the same time. Ms. Acosta that was brilliant. Her recipe: the seduction, intensity, hilarity and mystery that is Milagro De los Santos, add more of Ian Ducharme and less of the dull and workaholic Oswald K. Grant, a sexy love scene that was written with passion not pornographic, an unknown killer, subtle werewolf and shifter invlovement. It was perfect. (cheers! to a glass of blood) Another amazing book from Marta Acosta, this marks the change of everything in Milagros life. It's the book that the fans have been waiting for. Full of intense and emotional scenarios. Milagro's growth of character showed in every chapter of this book. I am glad that she is still herself only better. Bride of Casa Dracula is so far my favorite book in this series. I cannot wait for the release of book 4.

    Utterly unamused. I'm not a fan of stupid, catty women. I don't like the portrait of relationships among women in this story. I hate women who always do what they are told and never question the status-quo. And this is a weird sentence on a book that supposedly has the heroine regaining her independence. It took two books too much (and I didn't read the first). Milagro is treated like shit by everyone (even those who supposedly love her. Those who treat her better consider her an unpaid maid or Utterly unamused. I'm not a fan of stupid, catty women. I don't like the portrait of relationships among women in this story.

It took two books too much (and I didn't read the first). Milagro is treated like shit by everyone (even those who supposedly love her.

I mean, it doesn't look that better from what her family treated her (this should be the deep psycho-bubble that explains all). Uh... Personally, I found the portrait of Milagro and friends highly unflattering and unpleasant, it was more like a parody. But then maybe this was the author's intention all along. Pity there's not something I could root for. No characters, no plot, not the style (chick lit) or the humor. But This is a well loved series, I can only point to other reviews and ask you to make up your mind with a sample. I have the last book too. But after reading its blurb, I don't believe there's anything on this earth that can convince me to read it.

    I have to admit that this is the only Casa Dracula book that have read as of yet and it was not bad... Milagro De Los Santos is however not going to become one of my go to favorite reading about characters as not only do I find her somewhat too much, but also am not really too caught up in the 2ndry characters either...

There were a few places when some of what was going on made me smile and a few places where I threw up my hands in disbelief and complete disgust! Now to say all that I do want to read the last book to see what happens, cannot help it am too nosy not to want to know the ending of the story lines! For anyone who likes light comedy, drama queens, insecure heroines and lots of descriptions of clothes, shoes, hair and things of that sort you will have a good time with Milagro and company.....Marta Acosta

There is a huge amount going on in The Bride of Casa Dracula and in Milagro's life in general causing the book to be fast-paced and exciting. A shocking, but perfect, ending will definitely make the need to read the next and final book in the series immediately. Witty, scary, strange and wonderful plot twists take Milagro just where she needs to be and I can't wait to see how this all turns out.

    While this story was not as captivating as the 2nd in the Casa Dracula series "Midnight Brunch" it was still very entertaining. I'm a little bit unclear still what happened with Vidalia at the end. That scene happened quickly and didn't tie up well so I feel like I missed something. After that scene we find out that Milagro and Oswald called off their wedding and even though that was a good decision it still sort of needed some finality about it.

It does weird me out the relationship Ian and Milagro have but their passion is unmatched that is for sure. I don't know what will happen with them. I am surprised that Joseph and Cornelia ended up getting married. That was not really needed and didn't make much sense. Neither did the chemically induced shape shifting nonsense. But I digress, the story was entertaining and I did enjoy it. Eventually I'll download book #4 in the series.

I want to paint some of them on a wall so I can giggle at them everyday. Experiencing a book is as unique an interaction as dancing with a partner. Sometimes a partner's style just clicks and you can move perfectly with them while they look like rocks shaken in a box with another. This series has been like some of my favorite dance partners, the ones you have to learn, and once done, the dancing is.. Magnifique. Can't wait for the next book.

    A friend gave me this book a couple of months ago - and I have to say that at first I was wondering about this novel that had vampires and a latina main protagonist.

Thanks to True Blood, I could envision the whole world that was being described to me through this book and I loved loved how the journey went on for the main character... I can now see why my friend thought I would love it!

    I didn't know, diving into this book, that it was the third book in a series. So maybe my 3 stars isn't entirely fair, since one of the things I didn't like was lack of character dimension. These characters had been developed over two whole books previously so no time was wasted on back-story with them which left me feeling pretty flat about them. But still, it is a fun, vampiric, chic-lit romp that offered some laughs.

Christopher Moore, author of Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck, gave a nice blurb to the first book in the series as well.

    Entertaining but I think I've discovered I don't Milagro so much. She's stubborn and dismissive and can't make up her mind about anything. She also committed a huge no-no in my book (I don't care what Nancy says!). This series reminds me a lot of the Undead series, though luckily Milagro isn't THAT annoying (yet). One thing that really irks me about Mil is her lack of commitment to anything - writing, gardening...she doesn't care to work AT ALL and basically wants to putter around and do whatever Entertaining but I think I've discovered I don't Milagro so much.
