Body of Work
Vampire Kisses: Blood Relatives
Volume I, Blood Relatives
The absolute last thing Goth girl Raven and her vampire boyfriend Alexander need is another hitch in their night-time only romance—but dark trouble hovers on the horizon when Raven and Alexander discover four freshly dug graves filled with empty coffins. When a crew of dodgy vampires takes up residence in Dullsville's lonely graveyard, Alexander finds this motley bunch is led by his very own blood-sucking cousin, Claude Sterling. Claude and his creepy crew can only spell out more problems for the pair, especially when Raven finds them in daylight attending Dullsville Highschool! What could Claude and his invaders be doing—or searching for—in Dullsville?
Volume II, Blood Relatives
Who says dating a vampire is easy? Raven's nocturnal romance with her immortal love Alexander is definitely dicey, but even more so with Alexander's meddling half-vamp cousin in town. Claude and his sketchy gang are on the hunt for a stash of blood-filled vials that can turn them into pure vampires. With an old family feud casting a shadow on the search, they will do anything to get their hands on the vials. Raven and Alexander must swiftly mastermind a plan to outwit them, but will the very lure of the vials create more risk for Raven than she could ever imagine?
