From R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of teen novels Count
Dracula’s Teenage Daughter, Teen Ghost at Dead Lake, and Danger in Time, comes
the new YA adventure series, Summer at Paradise Ranch.


Four months shy of turning sixteen, Lexi Montoya was still trying to come
to terms with her parents’ divorce and her mom's marriage to a man she met
online, relocating to Maui, Hawaii.


Choosing to remain with her dad in Seattle, Lexi had planned to spend
her first summer since the divorce hanging out with her boyfriend, Matt, and her
best friend, Robin. But her dad had other plans, insisting she spend the summer
visiting her mom and stepdad at his ranch called Paradise Ranch in Wailuku, in
west Maui.


Lexi went there with an attitude. Then she meets a cute Hawaiian guy
named Mitsuo, is thrown into a love triangle, becomes friends with a teen girl named
April who lives on a ranch next door; rides her first horse--an Arabian mare
named Poppy--learns to hula dance and surf, and finds herself embroiled in a
dangerous rescue mission when Poppy and another horse named Casper are stolen
from her stepfather’s ranch.


By the time her tropical summer adventure comes to an end, Lexi hates to
leave Maui and say goodbye to Mitsuo. But can she stay when Matt is waiting for
her back at home to pick up where they left off? Or will he lose her to a
summer romance?


Summer at Paradise Ranch is a great coming of age adventure with young
romance and mystery in paradise. Now available in eBook, print, and audio.

From R. Barri Flowers, the bestselling author of the young adult Transylvanica High series featuring Count Dracula's Teenage Daughter and Out for Blood: Kula's Destiny, comes the exciting third book in the series, Daughter of Count Dracula: Kula's Dilemma.

Sixteen-year-old honor student Kula Lockhart is a junior at Transylvanica High School in Harbor Heights, Michigan. It is one of several integrated pilot schools across the country where human and vampire students peacefully coexist.

As the half human, half vampire daughter of Count Dracula, Kula has become a target of those who seek to destroy vampires, in spite of her vamp guardians, Ivan and Amelia, and Kula's own growing sense of self-preservation that she inherited from her father.

In her latest crisis, Kula is devastated when her mortal boyfriend, Eriq Pratt, is left clinging to life after a car accident orchestrated by a vampire hunter. When things reach a point of no return, Kula turns Eriq into a vampire to keep him alive forever.

Eriq must adjust to his new life as a vampire, even as he tries to hold onto his humanity. His love for Kula is the one constant in his life as is the unwanted presence of Sebastian LeBlanc, a half-vampire who has the hots for Kula.

Then there is Gabryela Roswell, Kula's vamp half-sister, and the gorgeous vamp, Jacquelyn Brossard, a member of the rival Doerzic clan, both jockeying for power and romance at Transylvanica High.

In the meantime, a pair of teen vampires is targeting the elderly of Harbor Heights for their blood, going against the new order of bottled human blood and blood drives.

As a police investigation is underway, with humans and vamps on edge, Kula is given the shock of her life when her birth mother she believed was dead, shows up in Harbor Heights. But is it a blessing or curse?

Fans of popular teen vampire and paranormal fiction series such as Twilight, True Blood, Vampire Academy, and Vampire Diaries, will love the latest chapter in this captivating series.

Bonus material includes an excerpt of book four in the Transylvanica High series, Count Dracula's Daughters: Sisters at War; a prequel novella of the series, Vampire Classmates; a short story of horror and suspense, Vandals, and an excerpt from the author's Hawaii adventure and romance novel, Summer at Paradise Ranch.

Look for other bestselling young adult novels by R. Barri Flowers, including Christmas Wishes: Laura's Story, Ghost Girl in Shadow Bay, Teen Ghost at Dead Lake, and Danger in Time. All are available in audio, eBook, and print.
