Series: Book 4 of Casa Dracula

THERE’S MORE THAN HER HEART AT STAKE. . . .As the only human to survive vampire infection, Milagro de Los Santos has become quite a celebrity among the blood-drinking elite. Too bad the perks of her condition—increased strength, super-fast healing—don’t pay her condo fees. There are other complications too. She’s feeling guilty about her fling with enigmatic Vampire Council member Ian Ducharme, and pining for her ex-fiancĂ©, Dr. Oswald Grant . . . the fabulous man whose kiss changed her life. It’s when Milagro—irked by Ian’s attentions to his neighbor—travels to London and enjoys a sexy flirtation of her own, that the blood really hits the fan. Suddenly, those around her are dying gruesome deaths and Milagro’s being interrogated. Who would kill to set her up as a murder suspect? Milagro just wants to turn back the clock and have another chance to make things right, but no sooner has she escaped to Oswald’s ranch than an accident obliterates her memory. Will the murderer come after her now? And will amnesia spark a romantic do-over with Oswald—or will she make all the same mistakes before she ever gets to say "I do"?

Haunted Honeymoon ends the Casa Dracula series perfectly. Milagro is finally right where she belongs. Everything about this book is spot on. And fans will rejoice when both Oswald and Ian's true inner selves are revealed.

Silly wacky Milagro has adventures galore, often finding herself somewhere instead of making things happen. This becomes obvious once she really finds that she has no control. In the end, she takes charge of her life and is finally, completely happy.

There are lots of unforeseen twists along the way, including a fun-filled jaunt to London. As mentioned in the synopsis, Milagro deals with a bout of amnesia. Instead of being annoying as most instances of this particular plot twist are, the amnesia is a pivotal, revealing, laugh out loud escapade that makes the book all that more perfect. By far, the very best book in the series.
