Hearts at Stake
by Alyxandra Harvey
On Solange’s sixteenth birthday, she is going to wake up dead. As if that’s not bad enough, she also has to outwit her seven overprotective older brothers, avoid the politics involved with being the only daughter born to an ancient vampire dynasty, and elude Kieran Black—agent of an anti-vampire league who is searching for his father’s killer and is intent on staking Solange and her entire family.
Luckily she has her own secret weapon—her human best friend Lucy—who is willing to defend Solange’s right to a normal life, whether she’s being smothered by her well-intentioned brothers or abducted by a power-hungry queen. Two unlikely alliances are formed in a race to save Solange’s eternal life—Lucy and Solange’s brother Nicholas, and Solange and Kieran Black—in a dual romance that is guaranteed to jump start any romance-lover’s heart.
Reasons I want to read this:
1. I'm really drawn to the cover for some reason.
2. I'm in the mood for some more paranormal, vampire action. I'm hoping that this turns out to be something similar to City of Bones,with action and romance.
3. This doesn't seem like your average vampire read, or like a another wagon-jumper. Hearts at Stake seems unique.
