Melanie would love to believe in fairy tales. She’d love, in fact to believe in anything. The 23 year old college drop-out and waitress is stuck- stuck in a dead-end job, stuck in her hometown of Ellicott City, and stuck with a boyfriend who likes to play dress-up as a vampire. Her world, and her reality are turned upside down when she encounters the real thing. Along the way she meets Lucas, the would-be vampire slayer, his father the Sheriff and ultimately the vampire himself. Melanie learns that fairy tales can come true and evil isn’t always where you expect.
