BRIDE OF CASA DRACULALoveVampires.com gave THE BRIDE OF CASA DRACULA, the third book in Marta Acosta’s CASA DRACULA series, 5 stars and noted “Fast paced, funny and hip – Marta Acosta’s inimitable writing style makes The Bride of Casa Dracula a must read for vampire fiction fans. It also has a wide cross-over appeal and I would recommend this novel to anyone, even readers who wouldn’t normally choose paranormal romance, since it has such a wide entertaining appeal.”

FAB & FURIOUS also gave Acosta‘s THE BRIDE OF CASA DRACULA 5 stars and said “The Bride of Casa Dracula is a great read . . . It’s unconventional, hip, fun, and exhilarating! Women who are used to standing up for themselves will be able to relate to Milagro’s spunky character. Acosta has drawn a heroine who can hold her own and it’s a refreshing change from the damsels in distress we usually associate with vampire novels. The fabulous guys in the story are not so bad as well.”
