A nerdy high school senior transforms into a vampire vixen who’s unaware that her hunky date for prom is the slayer sent to destroy her.
Morgan Taylor-Jackson can’t wait for high school to end. In six months she leaves for UCLA and says goodbye to La Jolla, California and her parents’ messy divorce. But when Morgan is bitten by a four-year-old boy, she becomes infected with a mysterious condition. Fever, insomnia, and a new bustline are only the beginning; Morgan morphs from nerd to bombshell.
As far as Van Xander is concerned, all vampires are evil, even the ones who reject human sacrifice and call themselves Puritans. When Helsing Incorporated sends Van to La Jolla to investigate the local coven, Morgan is his prime target. Pretending to be interested in her, Van asks Morgan out and puts her through a series of tests to determine her killer nature.
Morgan is thrilled to be dating a hot guy like Van and falls for him hard. As Van strings Morgan along, he grows increasingly guilty. Morgan is kind, compassionate, and a gooey romantic. Just as Van’s mind begins to change, evil forces threaten everything. When prom night arrives, there are only two ways out of the ballroom: death or immortality.

It was so not going to be okay. Morgan had passed the Taste, Smell, Sight, and Hearing tests with flying colors. 100 percent marks—she was a vampire. I even had the picture of her fangs to prove it. Sure, it was weird how the blood and guts part of the movie had made her throw up instead of wanting to attack people, but after all that carpaccio, she had had a full stomach. It was possible that if she’d been hungry, she would have morphed into a ravenous monster right there in the theater and I would have had to pepper spray her with holy water.
Instead, I’d full-on hugged her in the middle of the lobby. The technical word for what we’d done might have been “snuggle.” What was I thinking? Why had I been comforting a vampire?
It wasn’t because she was gorgeous. Vampiritis turned every girl into a babe. But Morgan was more than her looks. She was smart, funny, warm, and enthusiastic. Whenever we spent time together she gave me her full attention. She made me feel important, for reasons other than being a slayer. Easy there, lover boy. Focus on the mission at hand.
