This series is a UF/PNR mix. The character gets her man at the end of book 1 and is still with him in book 2, but the same characters are in trouble yet again rather than being relegated to minor characters.

The series is about Francesca Marinelli, a vampire who was buried for over 200 years and only recently dug up. She's still in the process of discovering her powers, but mostly just wants to live a normal (un)life in her home in St. Augustine, Florida.

If you like your heroines a bit more like the girl next door with a little something special then you'd love Cesca. It's not her fault she keeps getting embroiled in murders and strange vampire plots of domination. In that way she reminds me a bit of Sookie Stackhouse or Georgina Kincaid. A great character!

Book #3, Always the Vampire, will be in stores in May 2011 and I'll definitely be in like to pick it up!
