Two Y.A. novels feature Vampires, Witches and lots of scary fun!
Keeping with the Halloween theme, I present two books about an unusual southern belle vampire and her very out-of-the-ordinary family!
About Bite Me:
AJ Ashe isn't your typical seventeen-year-old vampire as if there is such a thing! She's stuck in the middle of a huge fight between her two BFFs. Her ex-boyfriend whom she's still totally in love with, by the way is now her stepbrother. A former classmate who, um, she may or may not have turned into a vampire is stalking her. And now, apparently, the fate of humankind lies in her little undead hands. What ever happened to the good old days, when all a vampire girl had to worry about was the occasional zit and hiding her taste for blood?
About Love Sucks:
AJ Ashe may have gotten rid of her vampire stalker and her evil ex-teacher, but things are hardly back to normal. For one thing, she still has to maintain a strict look-but-don't-touch policy with Ryan, her hot ex-boyfriend-turned-stepbrother. For another, she has to learn to control her vampire superpowers—which means more than a few dates with Lex, mind-reading professional vampire trainer and too-sexy-for-his-own-good bad boy. And as if that's not enough, she happens to be the key to her father's plans to take over the world . . . and he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants. All this and she's still got to plan the prom. Being a teenager is tough, but being a teenage vampire just flat out sucks!
I really enjoyed these two YA novels! Author Melissa Francis captures the teenage-angst with a flair for drama in these creative and very imaginative stories. I hope that she has plans for a least one more book featuring A.J. and her family - I'd like to know what happens to her and her step-brother as they grow older! I highly recommend these books for YA lovers!
About The Author:
Born and bred in Arkansas, Melissa Francis is a small-town southern girl with big-city dreams. The University of Arkansas at Little Rock allowed her to graduate with an English degree, but many of her friends wonder how when she uses words like y'all, dunno, gonna, and fixin' to. Her first novel was Bite Me.

I received copies of these book for review from the publisher, and I was not compensated for my opinions.
