Author Beth Fantaskey injects a little humor into the vampire romance genre with this critically acclaimed debut novel. High school senior Jessica Packwood is a down-to-earth mathlete who's not sure what her future holds. What she definitely doesn't see coming is foreign exchange student-and vampire-Lucius Vladescu showing up at her door. According to Lucius, Jessica is actually vampire royalty, and they've been betrothed to one another since infancy. "The romance sizzles, the plot develops ingeniously and suspensefully, and the satire sings."-Publishers Weekly, starred review

"TWILIGHT fans will find plenty to sink their teeth into here. Katherine Kellgren brings teenaged Jessica to life with convincing incredulity when she discovers that the new Romanian exchange student thinks she's his betrothed from the "old country"--and a vampire like him! When the most popular girls in school start to fawn over him, she makes us believe Jessica's slow, thoughtful second look. Jeff Woodman voices Lucius, the handsome vampire, with a dramatic edge that's perfectly in keeping with his personality. But Woodman also makes listeners understand Lucius's wonder, and then flat-out amazement, as he discovers all the freedoms available to the modern American teen. There's melodrama, there's humor, there's biting--teens will eat it up. D.G. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
