Inspiration:
I wanted to see how a Romanian vampire princess comes into her own (reminds me of the Princess Diaries) also liked Persnickety Snark's review and Debut Author Challenge

Description from book:
Enter a bizarre new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu who claims Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth and he's her long-lost fiance. He's arrogant, officious, embarrassingly overprotective, and, well, incredibly hot.

Armed with a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire's Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica tries to imagine the transition from an average American teenager to a glam European vampire princess. But just when things start to heat up with Lucius, a devious cheerleader sets her sights on him.

Soon Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war--and save Lucius's soul from eternal damnation. All of which leaves her to wonder: Wouldn't life be easier if she could just fall for a nice mortal boy?

My thoughts:
In-a-word: Pact - schmact
Very entertaining story! It did not fail in creating a different kind of vampire lore. The element of young love was satisfying. I loved watching the transformation of the spunky main character from teen to adulthood (ahem... vampirehood).

Looking forward to her next work: Jekel Loves Hyde (amazon.com says it releases July 10, 2009)
