Daughter of Darkness Publisher's Summary

Seventeen-year-old Lorelei Patio is the adopted daughter of 200-year-old vampire Sergio Patio. She never realized why her family has had to move so often or why she is not permitted to get too friendly with other young people. In fact, except for one shocking moment that seemed more like a dream, Lorelei never fully realized who and what her father was nor what her sisters were brought up to do for him. But one day, that all changed. Sergio’s "daughters" serve a very important purpose: they are all beautiful young ladies who can easily attract---and lure---men so that Sergio can feed on their blood. And now daddy expects Lorelei to be the obedient daughter he needs and bring him new victims.

But when Lorelei meets a shy, handsome young man named Buddy in school, she quickly falls in love with him. He feels the same way but wonders why she doesn't want to take him home to meet her father. Lorelei knows what will happen if she does and tries desperately to keep her two worlds apart, but she knows she can never truly escape her fate as a daughter of darkness. How will she manage these two worlds, and what will she have to give up to do so?

    In this enthralling vampire novel, V.C. Andrews returns to the story of a beautiful girl desperate to escape her secret family legacy - bred to be a lure for unwitting victims of her father's blood appetites. Determined to break free and embrace a life outside the shadows, Lorelei runs away from the only world she's ever known. In a quiet rooming house, she finds refuge among the tenants of elderly Mrs. Winston, and the beginnings of a new love with Liam, her landlady's handsome grandnephew. But Lorelei soon discovers that burying her past is not so easy.
