Bloodline Destinies (Bloodline #2) - Iuliana Foos

 

In the future, humans share the Earth with elusive vampires and GeMs – a new species of blood-drinkers who appeared after the flood. Theodor DeCroix is the vampire Prince of the Old Coven who finds himself torn between proving himself worthy of his bloodline and centuries-old beliefs about true love when he saves a Vivienne from the brink of death. After being rescued, Vivienne struggles to accept her new life and her attraction for the man who rescued her, especially since she fears his kind. Both must confront their own demons in order to save each other during a whirlwind of dreams and evil plots.

 

The second book in the Bloodlines Trilogy is an engaging romance that holds readers captive throughout this romance that has two very reluctant parties which keeps the relationship in question until the very end. The characters are bold, convincing and easily grab readers’ attentions from the very beginning and the emotional turmoil that flows from the pages grip the readers by their hearts ensuring that they want to know everything that happens.

 

The plot progresses at a steady rate that keeps the exciting and suspenseful events building the anticipation throughout the story which keeps readers on the glued to the pages with a white knuckled, wide eyed control. In keeping with the first book in this series, the author has spun another fascinating story that is full of major emotional turmoil and intense decision making that results in life altering changes while adding lots of heart pounding suspense. Unlike the previous story, this one jumps to the future and the author does a great job of describing the setting which makes it easy for readers to imagine it and become completely caught up in this fascinating and exciting vampire world.

REVIEW BY CHARLOTTE - Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant #1) by Deborah Garland
Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant #1) - Deborah Garland

NEVER FORCE A VAMPIRE TO MATE 

Dr. Alexander Manning has drawn too much blood from his beautiful patient. Overwhelmed with thirst for her, he drinks it immediately. But when she catches him and passes out, he must report what happened to his allegiant’s Commander. Or…he can deal with her himself. When he breaks into her house and enters her bedroom to wipe the incident from her mind, he reads her thoughts first. She wants him as much as he wants her.

Elizabeth Lockspier discovers the man she’s so drawn to is a vampire and fears for her safety and the well-being of her daughter. When Alexander tracks her down and assures her she’s in no danger and then kisses her, making her feel like the world has slid off its axis, she has to make a choice. Turn him away. Play it safe. Deny how she feels. Or…take a risk where the reward is night after night of blinding ecstasy. 

But Alex’s past catches up to him when the new Philadelphia Commander chooses Alex to be her mate. He must decide...go obediently into the arms of the woman who blackmailed him into years of sex. Or...fight back. With some magical powers he’s been keeping a secret or with a little science experiment a colleague is cooking up in a private research facility.

 

@hotchoc84 (Charlotte), @deborah_garland, #Paranormal, #Romance, 4 out of 5 (very good)

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant #1) by Deborah Garland
Drawing Bloodlines (The Princeton Allegiant #1) - Deborah Garland

Drawing Bloodlines is the first book in The Princeton Allegiant, and we meet with Alexander, a young vampire of only five hundred years old or so. He is the doctor who draws the blood from our main female, Elizabeth, which is okay until she catches him drinking it.

The attraction between Alexander and Elizabeth is off the charts from the start, but I actually wished it wasn't for part of the book! Now, don't get me wrong, steam isn't a bad thing at all, but for me, it actually took away from some of the parts of the story. It all became about how often these two made the naughty, rather than anything else like, for example, maybe Alex could have told Elizabeth more of his history... say the part with Christiana in it?! I actually preferred this book once Alex was told he had to mate with Christiana, and Loren appeared on the scene. I felt there was more of a connection then, but maybe that's just me.

On the whole, this was a very good read, with plenty to get your teeth into (bad pun intended). I would love to read more about this world of Allegiants, and see how it works in greater detail. And, of course, find out more about the missing vampires. Oh, and hope Elijah gets his story!

There were no editing or grammatical errors that I noticed, and I have no hesitation in recommending this book. Excellent start to the series.

Better than winning the lottery!
Bloodlines: Cove Point Manor - William Taylor

Wouldn't it be wonderful to inherit an amazing historical house and the money to maintain it? Cove Point Manor sounded fabulous and it had even been kept in good condition since it was last lived in, by a maintenance firm. Unfortunately I found the way in which Alex's inheritance found its way to him, a little too coincidental, but OK, I can ignore that.

 

Then, of course, once you receive this amazing inheritance, you suddenly attract all the scrounging friends and relatives, after their share. Brenda and Connie were no exception and they drove me nuts, as no doubt they were intended to do. Alex was amazingly tolerant, I'm sure I'd have lost my rag much sooner.

 

The narration by Bill Nevitt was well done, especially as there were many unnecessary repetitions of names, which always irritates me. I so wished the author would make more use of the words 'he' and 'she'. Mr Nevitt did a good job of both male and female characters and read at a comfortably steady pace.

 

The paranormal part of the story was quite entertaining, with Alex's Great (Great?) Grandmother lurking in mirrors and taking a dislike to the uninvited guests. I did get confused by all the Great Greats and never really got a hold of the Farnsworth family tree. Maybe this was printed in the readable version? I could certainly have done with a copy.

 

A little bit of an unconvincing ending for me, but all in all, an entertaining cosy mystery that wasn't scary or violent.

REVIEW BY MERISSA - Bloodlines by Denise Carbo
Bloodlines - Denise Carbo

Bloodlines is a story about shifters from another planet. They live amongst the humans now, in their clans, with mostly keep separate from each other. When one of Malcolm's clan member's turns up dead, he has a mystery on his hands - one that could lead to war. Add to that, he has an off-the-scale attraction to the hotel's new manager, and Malcolm's life is about to get rather complicated.

This was an easy enough read, with no major plots twists or intrigue to deal with. The 'big bad' was pretty clear from the start, but weirdly, this did not detract from the story. The biggest detraction, for me, was the so-called relationship between Malcolm and Elsie. If you add up the time they spent together, they probably weren't in each others company for more than 24 hours throughout the book, and yet Elsie has completely fallen for him. Not only that, but she is a complete limp lettuce where he is concerned. He walks all over her, is rude to her, only shows up when he wants sex. She is NOT okay with this (we get the monologues that tell us so), but she still "wilts" whenever he is near. Sorry, but I just didn't get their relationship at all!

The rest of it flowed easily enough. I found the supporting characters all interesting, although some of them had reputations I wasn't sure were deserved, or even why they had them. Apart from the main relationship, I found this book to be nicely written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow.
