Roxy heads underground to a vampire club and meets Dru.
Spoiler: Sexy stuff happens. A lot of it. Oh, and there are fangs involved
Enter a world of immortal danger and desire—and discover an incredible fate borne of blood.
One minute, I'm a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I'm whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I'm the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he's got evidence I can't deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .
How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there's something between us that's so intoxicating, so carnal, I can't help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it's treason.
In the midst of supernatural chaos, worlds and hearts collide.
Celia: Having never known my parents, I've always felt like an orphan. All I want is a normal life. But after I'm attacked in my bedroom by one vampire—and rescued by another—it's about time to give up on "normal" once and for all. Idris, the second in command of the Gregorie vampire clan, has come to my aid, but his motives for saving me are unclear. And what surprises me most is my attraction to his heated gaze. . . .
Idris: Terror. Curiosity. Arousal. These are the natural impulses of a human female, not the spawn of the ruthless Valarian king. Is it possible that Celia is unaware of her bloodline—and the power coursing through her veins? As the daughter of my archenemy, she was supposed to be my ransom. But how quickly the heat of desire changes everything. Now the family Celia has always craved is trying to kill her, and it's up to me to save her again—when all I really want to do is make her mine.
These books were so great! I loved this take on vampires and the stories about these couples were just so great to read! The full length stories are for the royal brothers, but the short story is of the head of security at Bite! I'm really glad that he got his story!
I felt bad for Tendra, she's had it rough, just her and her mom constantly on the go. Then her mom dies and she's left alone. Then she's kidnapped and told that she was born to be this power source for the elder brother, something that's been fated. Being torn from her world like that, that was pretty brutal!
I loved being in all of these guys's heads, because on one had, you have the brother who is thought to be younger and meant to protect Tendra. On the other, you have the brother thought to be king, and then he wasn't the older brother. So we got both of their stories and that was really great!
Celia had it rough, too, given that she thinks that she's an orphan. But she gets pulled into this world because her dad is the leader of the bad vampires who don't care about human life. I really enjoyed her and Idris's story, and how they fell in love! Such a great read!
I enjoyed reading these books so much, and I really hope that we get more!
