Jessicas guide to dating the dark side
They have time to examine their true feelings about family and duty.
At the same time, she starts hearing her birth name whispered in the air. When the same strange and mysterious guy shows up at school, she doesn't know what to think.
Lucius is no Edward Cullen, and Jessica is no Bella, swooning endlessly over her vampire.
Jessica doesn't even believe Lucius' claims to be a vampire for the first half of the novel, and by the time she figures it out the game has changed (to use a metaphor from the book), and she has to 'toughen up' and adapt to the strange new circumstances she encounters.
Jessica (Antanasia) is a Romanian vampire princess who was betrothed to Lucius when they were born.
The promise of their marriage has held their two clans, the Dragomirs and the Vladescus, in a tentative peace for years.
