Even though her father is running for President of the United States, Grace St. Claire is as normal a girl as they come. She’s clumsy, shy, and an outcast among her peers. She even manages to nearly die in a freak accident in front of the entire school. But when Grace survives a vampire attack she quickly learns that she is anything but ordinary.
There’s something about human Grace that has all the supernaturals around her going crazy. Her best friend’s brother suddenly wants to date her. Her worst enemy has sworn to protect her even against her wishes. Someone with very powerful magic wants her dead, and the vampire that attacked her has developed an obsession with making her his eternal mate.
In order to survive—and not as Count Dracula’s undead bride—Grace dives head first into the terrifying world of the supernatural. She teams up with a charming but mysterious warlock who strolled into town causing trouble and spouting stories of a Prophesy and Chosen One that looks exactly like Grace. Together they must figure out why Grace is different, who wants her dead, how she’s connected to the Chosen One, and who they can really trust.
Kelly's Top 10 signs you might be a bookworm
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary a bookworm is “a person who likes to read books and who spends a lot of time reading and studying.”
Not to disagree with Mirriam and Webster, but I think it’s a little more complicated than that. There are people out there who like to read, and then there are bookworms. So how do you know if you’re a bookworm as opposed to someone who loves to read?
I give you, my top 10 signs you might be a bookworm…10. Your librarian knows you by name.9. The only thing you want for Christmas and birthdays is books (or Amazon giftcards).8. You hate waiting an entire year for the next book to come out. (But you do it anyway.)7. You keep a book (or e-reader) in your purse at all times.6. You have gotten so mad at a book that you have literally thrown your book across the room.5. Your dream make-out list includes all fictional characters instead of musicians or celebrities.4. You’ve gotten weird looks for screaming at characters in public.3. You give away books simply to make more room on your bookshelf.2. You check your “mailbox” on Monday, “tease” on Tuesday, and “wait” on Wednesday.1. Book hangovers. Enough said.FYI: I am guilty of ALL of these!

She's obsessed with reading, talks way too much, and loves to eat frosting by the spoonful. She lives outside of Phoenix, Arizona with her husband and four children.
