Borrowing from The Story Siren. I combined this week and last week’s into this week since I was gone.

Geek Charming by Robin Palmer
Publish Date: Feburuary 5, 2009

Dylan Shoenfield is the princess of L.A.’s posh Castle Heights High. She has the coolest boyfriend, the most popular friends, and a brand-new “it” bag that everyone covets. But when she accidentally tosses her bag into a fountain, this princess comes face-to-face with her own personal frog: selfprofessed film geek Josh Rosen. In return for rescuing Dylan’s bag, Josh convinces Dylan to let him film her for his documentary on high school popularity. Reluctantly, Dylan lets F-list Josh into her A-list world, and is shocked to realize that sometimes nerds can be pretty cool. But when Dylan’s so-called prince charming of a boyfriend dumps her flat, her life—and her social status— comes to a crashing halt. Can Dylan—with Josh’s help—pull the pieces together to create her own happily-ever-after?

Meet Mara Waters, Eliza Thompson, and Jacqui Velasco — new au pairs for one of New York City’s wealthiest families — who will spend their summer in one of the most posh, most exclusive spots for summer summering: the Hamptons.

For good girl Mara, this job is a way out of another go-slow Massachusetts summer. Eliza, New York City’s former It Girl, knows this is the fast lane back to the stylish world she wishes she’d never left. And for Brazilian bombshell Jacqui, it’s a boarding pass back to her American love who told her he’d e-mail as soon as he got home, and didn’t.

After all, how hard can an au pair job be? Slap sunscreen on the kids during the day and party at the coolest hot spots at night, right? Wrong.

While Eliza is desperately trying to hide her baby-sitting job from her superspoiled friends who think she’s still just as rich as she used to be, Mara’s getting awfully cozy with the kids’ extremely attractive older brother, Ryan. And Jacqui is heartbroken when she discovers that the love of her life may have been nothing more than a spring fling.

If the girls can manage au pair duties — all the while mastering the ins and outs of the Hamptons’ social scene — it might just turn out to be the most incredible summer of their lives. But to do it they’ll have to stick together. And that’s where things definitelyget sticky.

Have you ever wondered what secrets lurk behind the closed doors of New York City’s wealthiest families? They’re powerful, they’re famous… they’re undead.
Schuyler Van Alen’s blood legacy has just been called into question–is the young vampire in fact a Blue Blood, or is it the sinister Silver Blood that runs through her veins? As controversy swirls, Schuyler is left stranded in the Force household, trapped under the same roof as her cunning nemesis, Mimi Force, and her forbidden crush, Jack Force.

When one of the Gates of Hell is breached by Silver Bloods in Rio de Janeiro, however, the Blue Bloods will need Schuyler on their side. The stakes are high; the battle is bloody; and through it all, Carnavale rages on. And in the end, one vampire’s secret identity will be exposed in a revelation that shocks everyone.
