Residing at the Grant family ranch, Milagro de Los Santos feels like she’s an accepted member of Oswald’s family. So when the family arranges a special ceremony for Oswald’s new niece but excludes Milagro, she takes matters into her own hands. Trouble follows Milagro wherever she goes, and when Oswald travels to perform plastic surgery on children who wouldn’t otherwise receive it, she embarks on a new adventure. A promising job offer in her writing career lands Milagro at an exclusive resort, but her employer has a lot more than a rewrite in mind.

Despite his hectic schedule, the harsh words he shared with Milagro before he left are plaguing Oswald’s thoughts. With poor phone reception in his current location there’s little outside contact, but a brief phone call causes him alarm that sends Oswald on a frantic race for home. His sudden return finds him joining the family in a plot to outsmart a group of people who want Milagro’s blood for their own dark intentions. The family promised to protect her, they’re not about to let her go now.

Midnight Brunch is the second book in the Casa Dracula series and just as wonderfully funny as the first. Milagro is off on a quest to further her career but finds that she’s been plunged into more trouble than she alone can handle. With this delightful sequel of intrigue and adventure, Ms. Acosta treats readers to a fresh dose of her sharp wit, sexy characters and sizzling passion. Milagro and her zany luck will have fans eagerly awaiting more in this enchanting series.
