Although this series was intended for adults, I think it's equally (or maybe even more) appropriate for the young adult market.
Then, she meets Lucien Antonescu, who just happens to be the son of Dracula. He saves her from certain injury due to an attack by evil bats. She falls head-over-heels in love with him, and they begin to develop a relationship.
Of course, at first Meena doesn't believe that Lucien is a supernatural being, but eventually she begins to realize that vampires are much more common than she could possibly imagine. She even has neighbors who are vampires, for heaven's sake!
The story is written in a charming tongue-in-cheek style, and is obviously Ms. Cabot's response to recent proliferation of intense paranormal romantic fiction. Cabot does have stray from the facetious tone on occasion, but on the whole, this is an enjoyable, laugh-out-loud interpretation of the genre.
