How will Jane Austen break the news to her fiancé that she's not only undead, but also a two-hundred-plus-year-old literary icon?
In sleepy upstate New York, Jane's wedding preparations have taken on a bloodsucking intensity. So when Walter suggests they ditch it all and combine their marriage and honeymoon with a house tour of Europe, Jane jumps at the chance to flee Lord Byron and the lingering threat of Charlotte Brontë. But to Jane's chagrin, more than one secret from her past is about to resurface.
From an Agatha Christie--style murder mystery to a wedding interrupted by the ghosts of the Princes in the Tower to a shocking revelation about Walter's mother, nothing about this trip is less than pure mayhem. And when a chance encounter puts Jane on the trail of a legendary device reputed to restore a vampire's human soul, will our beloved heroine finally be able to vow her love and devotion--or will a vampire hunter's vengeance drive a stake through her eternal life?
