The highly anticipated sequel to Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side

It’s one thing to find out you’re a vampire princess. It’s a whole other thing to actually rule. Newly married Jessica Packwood is having a hard enough time feeling regal with her husband, Lucius, at her side. But when evidence in the murder of a powerful elder points to Lucius, sending him into solitary confinement, Jessica is suddenly on her own. Determined to clear her husband’s name, Jessica launches into a full-scale investigation, but hallucinations and nightmares of betrayal keep getting in her way. Jessica knows that with no blood to drink, Lucius’s time is running out. Can she figure out who the real killer is—and whom she can trust—before it’s too late?

Exclusive e-book content includes twenty-one additional chapters that tell all the details of the beautiful and romantic wedding of Jessica and Lucius that takes place in the time between Jessica’s Guide to Dating on the Dark Side and Jessica Rules the Dark Side.
