Book Description:
A reluctant vampire hunter, stalking New York City as only a scorned bride can.

Elle Dupree has her life all figured out: first a wedding, then her Ph.D., then swank faculty parties where she’ll serve wine and cheese and introduce people to her husband the lawyer.
But those plans disintegrate when she walks in on a vampire sucking the blood from her fiancé, Greg. Horrified, she screams and runs—not away from the vampire, but toward it, brandishing a wooden letter opener.
As she slams the improvised stake into the vampire’s heart, a team of black-clad men bursts into the apartment. Turning to face them, Elle realizes Greg’s body is gone—and her perfect life falls apart

Top Five Ways to Tell if Your Fiancé Would Rather Be a Bloodsucking Fiend

A guest post by Margo Bond Collins, author of Legally Undead

In Legally Undead, history graduate student Elle Dupree is cheerfully planning her wedding to her fiancé Greg, but those plans are trashed when she comes home to find him being turned into a vampire—and she quickly discovers that vampirism is a choice Greg made. So in addition to having to deal with the fact that vampires are real, she’s left with some pretty difficult realizations—not least of which is the knowledge that her fiancé would rather be a vampire than marry her, and she never saw it coming. So for today’s guest post, I’m sharing Elle’s list of warning signs that your beloved might considering joining the ranks of the undead:

1. You find blood on his collar. Forget worrying about lipstick on the collar—blood is the real giveaway here. He might try to tell you that he cut himself shaving. Don’t buy it. Blood on the collar is a clear sign that your boyfriend is letting creatures of the night snack on him when you’re not around.

2. He’s recently accepted a position at a prestigious New York law firm. While this is not enough in itself to suggest a liaison with the evil undead, when combined with other elements on this list, it might suggest a tendency to prefer the company of bloodsucking fiends.

3. He often works late. Again, by itself this is not incriminatory. But we all know that vampires need darkness, and what better excuse for meeting up with these demons than “I have to work late”?

4. He suddenly develops a preference for wearing only black, white, and red. These kinds of sartorial changes might initially seem to be connected to that new job—a new dark suit, white shirt, and blood-red tie? Those could simply be a sign of his desire to succeed. But they could also indicate a deeper desire to imitate the fashion choices of creepy B-movie vampires everywhere.

5. You come home to find a creature of the night draining him. Like Elle, you might initially be inclined to jump in and stake the vampire, thereby saving your one and only. But it might be worthwhile to hang back for a moment and watch. Does your dearly beloved seem to be enjoying the process? Is he fighting back? If not, you may have walked in on a voluntary turning.

Remember, if you think your beau might prefer the tortures of the damned to pledging his life to yours, there’s help available . . . but if you can’t find that help quickly enough, you can always do what Elle did, and pick up a stake to track his ass down.
