Vampires and other spooky stories.

My sister the vampire: Love Bites by Sienna Mercer.

Is Transylvania ready for the twins?

Olivia and Ivy are headed to Transylvania to meet their dad´s side of the family, which just happens to be vampire royalty. Olivia is prepped to feel out of her element, but discovers she fits i with the fanged ones pretty well.

Ivy is a little less at ease-fancy clothes, royal dinners, and endless curtsies aren´t really her style. She soon has a project to distract her style. The crown prince of Transylvania seems a little too interested n Olivia-is he just being friendly, or is he up to no good?

My sister the vampire: Lucky Break by Sienna Mercer.

Olivia and Ivy are thrilled that their friend Camilla is putting on a play. And not just any play- Romeo and Juliet! Could anything be more romantic?

Olivia is swooning at the thought of stepping into the lead role (and hopes that dreamy Jackson will be Romeo to her Juliet). But no theater production happens without its fair share of drama… and this on is no exception!
