My Future Fix Pick!
Publication Date: January 10, 2012
Publisher: Harcourt Children's Books
Pages: 320

When Jessica Packwood found out she was a Romanian vampire princess, she had the shock of her teenage life. Turns out that was the easy part. Now, married to Prince Lucius Vladescu, she has to claim her throne and convince a vampire nation she’s fit to be their queen. But Jess can’t even order a decent meal from her castle’s Romanian staff, let alone deal with devious undead subjects who would love to see her fail.

And when Lucius is accused of murdering a vampire Elder and imprisoned without the blood he needs, Jessica finds herself alone, fighting for both their survivals.

Desperate to clear her husband’s name and win his release, Jess enlists the help of her best friend Mindy Stankowicz and Lucius’s mysterious Italian cousin, Raniero Lovatu. But both of them are keeping some dark secrets. Can Jess figure out who to trust – and how to rise to power – before she loses everything, including the vampire she loves?

Full of romance, mystery, and danger, the highly anticipated sequel to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side shows that sometimes a princess has to earn her “happily ever after” – with a sharpened stake in hand.

(From Goodreads)

I just finished Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Darkside. I have to admit, I was pretty nervous to start a vampire book. It just feels like I'm cheating on Twilight. 
But, I dug into the book anyways. Sunk my teeth in?
Anyways, I have a new vampire love! Well, another, I guess. Lucius in a smart-ass yet charming vampire. Mmmm! And Jessica is a force to be reckoned with.
I loved it so much that I immediately went to my wishlist and added Jessica Rules the Dark Side and I will be anxiously awaiting this one until past Christmas. Anyone want to hand me a review copy???

What book is you Future Fix Pick??
