Series Description or Overview Edit

BOOK ONE—Vampyres of Hollywood: Hollywood: three gruesome deaths within two weeks and every one of them a major star. Tinseltown’s biggest names are turning up dead and the only thing they have in common, aside from box-office grosses, is their connection to the seductive scream queen, Ovsanna Moore.

Moore is the head of Anticipation Studios. She’s the writer and star of seventeen blockbuster horror films, several less than successful ones, and a few that went straight to DVD.

She’s also a 450-year-old vampyre.

Beverly Hills Police Detective Peter King knows a lot about the City of Angels, but he doesn’t know that most of the A-listers in town are vampires. Or that powerful siren Ovsanna Moore is the CEO of their clan.

Moore and King may be from opposite sides of the Hollywood Hills, but both have something to gain by stopping the killer who the tabloids have dubbed the Cinema Slayer. Ovsanna must protect her vampire legacy and her production schedule, while King just wants to keep his Beverly Hills beat as blood-free as possible. When the horror queen and the hunky cop form an unholy alliance, sparks fly and so do the creatures of the night. ~ vampyres of hollywood | adrienne barbeau.

BOOK TWO—Love Bites: Ovsanna Moore is a gorgeous Hollywood scream queen with a secret no plastic surgeon can rival: she’s a 450-year-old vampyre. So when Beverly Hills Detective Peter King discovers that Ovsanna’s pearly whites are really fangs, instead of grabbing garlic and a wooden stake, he asks her out. And a romantic Christmas Eve turns into a holiday of horror.

First there’s the werewolf attack, then the mutilated body at the Sportsmen’s Lodge, and finally, Orson Welles and Mary Pickford in a rat disguise and a Cyndi Lauper costume. And it doesn’t help that Ovsanna’s personal assistant and sometimes lover, Maral, will do anything to get Peter out of the picture.

Peter and Ovsanna end up fighting for their love affair and their lives. Ovsanna enlists her clan, the Vampyres of Hollywood, to help battle a menagerie of supernatural beasts straight out of Alien Vs. Predator. This isn’t a box-office ratings war, it’s a fight to the death. ~ love bites | adrienne barbeau

Moore and King may be from opposite sides of the Hollywood Hills, but both have something to gain by stopping the killer who the tabloids have dubbed the Cinema Slayer. Ovsanna must protect her vampire legacy and her production schedule, while King just wants to keep his Beverly Hills beat as blood-free as possible.

So grab some popcorn and some holy water and lose yourself in the high-stakes, back-stabbing world of the Vampyres of Hollywood. ~ Fantastic Fiction, and Goodreads

BOOK TWO—Love Bites: With her customary wit and dead-on satire, Barbeau skewers Hollywood and vamp lit alike, casting the paparazzi as werewolves and certain Hollywood “monsters” as the genuine article

Ovsanna Moore is a Hollywood siren, horror film legend, and cut throat producer. She also happens to be a 450-year-old vampyre. In the follow-up to the much acclaimed Vampyres of Hollywood, Adrienne Barbeau paints a wonderfully sly portrait of cinematic vampyres, as well as the nature of celebrity, and the entertainment industry. Her “Scream Queen” credentials make her the only author who could combine such a fastpaced, edgy plot with tongue-in-cheek references to the inner workings and vanity of Hollywood. A whirlwind of action, Love Bites is a clever take on vampyres readers will never forget. ~ Goodreads
