Silver in the Blood by Jessica Day George
Spoiled society girls in 19th century New York City, Dacia and Lou, are sent to Romania to meet their extended family. When the heir of the royal Dracula family, Mihai, decides he must have Dacia as his wife as part of a dastardly plan to take over Europe; the girls must decide whose side they will be on. Traditionally her family has served the Dracul family for centuries with their special gifts. When the girls learn the family secret, they are shocked and horrified. Will they stand together against their own family to fight for what is right? The story starts a little slowly as it builds the characters and hints at the secrets in the family, but once all is revealed there is plenty of action during an epic confrontation between the Prince and the cousins.
