The first novel in a YA fantasy romance series featuring “vampires with bite and girls who bite back. A witty, exhilarating and fresh take on an old tale” (Kelley Armstrong).

On her sixteenth birthday, Solange Drake is going to die . . .
 
But that’s okay.
 
As the only daughter ever born to an ancient vampire dynasty, Solange’s sweet sixteen just means she will fully come into her own as an immortal. Unfortunately, it also means a lot of people both dead and undead are now watching her. Especially Kieran Black—a vengeful agent with an anti-vampire league who blames Solange’s family for his father’s death.
 
Luckily, Solange has her human best friend, Lucy, who tries to help her have as normal a life as possible, despite her overprotective brothers and the politics of the undead realm.
 
But when Solange is abducted by a power-hungry vampire queen, it will take all her friends—as well as the daring and dangerous Kieran—to rescue her before she loses her eternal life . . .
 
In this “action-packed” (School Library Journal) story of love, loyalty, and blood ties, Alyxandra Harvey kicks off a saga of thrills with a nail-biter—and a neck-biter—that will have readers eager to devour the rest of the series.
 
Hearts at Stake is the 1st book in the Drake Chronicles, which also includes Blood Feud and Out for Blood.

The first three YA fantasy romance novels featuring “vampires with bite and girls who bite back. A witty, exhilarating and fresh take on an old tale” (Kelley Armstrong).

In the darkness of the vampire realm, the Drake family has hidden for ages. Now, a new generation of young, noble nightwalkers must find their way in the world of immortals, mortals, and vampire hunters as they fight for both survival and the chance of eternal love . . .
 
Hearts at Stake: Solange Drake is coming into her own as the only daughter ever born to an ancient vampire dynasty. And that means a lot of people both dead and undead are going to be watching her. Especially Kieran Black—a vampire hunter out for revenge. But when Solange is abducted by a power-hungry vampire queen, it will take all her friends as well as the daring and dangerous Keiran to save her eternal life . . .
 
Blood Feud: The day Isabeau St. Croix was turned into a vampire, she was buried alive and left for dead by a vicious British lord. Now, over two hundred years later, she has emerged to seek revenge. But she never expected the vampire world to be on the edge of chaos. Nor did she expect to meet the handsome Logan Drake. And when a sinister threat rises to challenge the Drake dynasty, Isabeau and Logan must stand with each other if they are going to survive . . .
 
Out for Blood: Hunter Wild is descended from a long line of elite vampire hunters. But when the hunter academy she attends comes under attack, she must turn to an unlikely ally: the drop-dead gorgeous vampire Quinn Drake. Can she trust her born enemy to help her without using his wiles to ensnare her?
 
Hailed as “a refreshing take on the familiar teenage vampire drama,” the Drake Chronicles is an irresistible saga of love, humor, and adventure that will keep you turning pages deep into the dark of night (Publishers Weekly).
