Synopsis (from Goodreads):
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?

My Review:
Beth Fantaskey did an amazing job on picking up where she ended things in Jessica’s Guide To Dating The Dark Side. Everything in this book I fell in love with. When you start reading you are literally thrown in the deep end right into the plot of power, now that her marriage to Lucius is over with Jessica is learning to reign as Queen. She is learning the laws, language and the how to of being a good Queen to her people. I like that Jessica is showing her flaws, but she is having trouble in learning in what she needs to do. I also like that he does not hide it but really stresses over it. But with all the stressing Jessica and Lucius make a great team. That is what a real marriage is all about, working together, having each other’s back no matter what life throws at you?

It was amazing to see the growth of each character in the book, Jessica starts off rocky not really sure how to stand on her own 2 feet always relying on Lucius. But now it is good to rely on your husband but there will be times where you have to eventually stand on you 2 feet without the help. Soon as trouble rose Jessica took everything in with amazing strength, she was very stressed and tired but she knew what was needed to be done. You have to admire her ability to keep a straight face with all the death and trouble looming around her. But as always in the end Jessica is awesome at being a Queen in her own right.
