The of Veil of Night By Lydia Joyce and Happy Hour at Casa Dracula by Marta Acosta

In darkness, he awaits her...

Byron Stratford, Duke of Raeburn, walks in shadow. Spoken of only in whispers, he lives alone in his crumbling manor, a cold, enigmatic recluse. Rarely appearing by the light of day, he moves as a wraith in the night, answering to no man. He cares little for those who dwell outside -- and does not abide the intrusion of others, lest they discover his secret shame... This is the sinister man Lady Victoria Wakefield must confront if she is to save herself from her family's ruin. Little does she suspect that she will emerge from her journey into that night as his shining sun— or that the passion that radiates between them will be their only defense against the true darkness threatening to destroy them both...


I couldn't get into it. Byron is rarely seen in the daytime. He's reclusive. Victoria comes him begging that he forgive her brothers debts. "I'll post them only if you stay with me a week." "I'm outraged, but ok!"

I skipped to the end. The reason why he stays away from light is because he's super sensative to it. He burns when he's exposed to it even for a few minutes.

Meh- Grade: D-


Happy Hour at Casa Dracula

Latina Ivy League grad Milagro de Los Santos can't find her place in the world or a man to go with it. Then one night, at a book party for her pretentious ex-boyfriend, she meets an oddly attractive man. After she is bitten while kissing him, she falls ill and is squirreled away to his family's estate to recover. Vampires don't exist in this day and age -- or do they? As Milagro falls for a fabulously inappropriate man, she finds herself caught between a family who has accepted her as one of their own and a shady organization that refuses to let the undead live and love in peace.

I read about two chapters, then just put the book down. I didn't even skim through the ending.

Grade: F.
