Release Day Blitz: Blood Type by K.A. Linde

Posted on

A startling new vision of paranormal romance: When a human ventures into the world of vampires—a decadent milieu of blood-bonds and betrayal—she discovers that not all is what it seems.

For Reyna Carpenter, giving up her body isn’t a choice. It’s survival.

In a civilization laid waste by poverty and desperation, Reyna accepts a high-paying position with the wealthy and hungry vampire elite. Her new job is as the live-in blood escort for the intimidating, demanding, and devilishly handsome Beckham Anderson. He’s everything she expected from a vampire, except for one thing—he won’t feed off her.

Reyna soon discovers that behind Beckham’s brooding, wicked façade lies a unique and complex man. And that, in a dark and divided world, she is more valuable than she ever would have believed.

For with each passing night, Reyna can’t shake the sensation that it’s Beckham who’s afraid of her.

Note: Reyna and Beckham’s story continues in Blood Match.

That was the moment Beckham appeared in the doorway like a storm cloud.

Reyna straightened in her seat at the expression on his face. He walked across the room like a tightly coiled spring ready to explode.

“Ah Beckham, there you are,” Harrington said.

“Excuse me, William. I need to speak with Reyna. Alone.”

She hastened out of her seat and followed him around the corner. He tugged her straight through the kitchens, out the back door, down a corridor, and into a dead end. Then her back was slammed against the brick wall. His fist connected with the wall behind her, and she felt the wall shudder. Debris floated onto her shoulders.

“You left,” he growled.

“I . . .”

“No.” He pressed his finger to her lips roughly. She stopped breathing and just stared up into his eyes as dark as night. Her body trembled under the feral stare. “You left without me.”

The silence was weighted. All she could do was sit with their bodies nearly touching. His finger on her mouth. Her mind wandering to hellacious places.

“You are my subject. Can you imagine what it was like when I found you missing? When you turned up with three of my kind?” She shook her head minutely. He bared his teeth to her, and she shrank back. “These are meant to drink your blood. To drink you dry until there is nothing left of your body but a dry corpse. We are killers. We don’t hesitate. Just because we’re wearing suits and seem more like you . . . does not mean we are like you. We are not like you. They especially are not like you. The only way you get to the top of Visage is to be fucking ruthless, Reyna. Do you understand?”

“You’re . . . scaring me,” she whispered.

“Good.”

Reyna Carpenter and Beckham Anderson return in the exhilarating follow-up to the provocative paranormal romance Blood Type.

My Review

“This man made her want to run as fast and as far away from him as possible. This man was a thing of nightmares.”

“All that was before her was Beckham. A predator luring his prey. And she was trapped. As thoroughly as a rabbit in a snare.”

“Sweet. Tempting. Addicting. He was the real deal. The perfect package.”

OMG! Looks like I may have found my next paranormal fix! Blood Type was everything that I never knew I needed. It was sexy, seductive and completely alluring. Reyna and Beckham’s story had me utterly captivated and furiously devouring the pages. I had so many questions and was desperate for all the answers.

Blood Type is fast paced and a totally refreshing paranormal romance. The plot is fascinating and you can’t help but get lost in the story that this author has written. I fell in love with the characters instantly and couldn’t wait to discover more about them. I wasn’t sure who was on the up and up or who could really be trusted. Add in a sexy, alpha vampire that has more to him than meets the eyes and well…let’s just say all bets are off. Blood Type is going to take you for one crazy and thrilling ride. All I can say is you better hold on because things are about to be crazy.

Blood Type took me by surprise in the best possible way. It was refreshing and intriguing. And I just loved the way the story unfolded. I couldn’t get enough of the characters and their story. From sex to intrigue to shocking twists and ending that will just leave you begging for more, this book hit all the marks. I think this series is off to one heck of a start and I for one can not wait to get my greedy hands on the next book in this series. The countdown begins now….

Excerpt:

Copyright © 2018 Return of the Lycan King: Book 2 Lex and Elizabeth

Candace Blackburn

“Alexei, are you okay?”

“No. I’m not.” He turned, facing her now but still staying by the window. Keeping distance between them. “If those two… damnable women had not drugged my stew. If you hadn’t seen me with them. If you hadn’t been attacked. So many what ifs, and so many lost years. All this time, we could’ve been together. We could’ve had every night together. Met every morning in each other’s arms.” He slashed his arm through the air. “No weeks or months spent wondering if I’d get to see you again. No missing you with every beat of my heart.”  The tears steadily flowed. His canines had dropped, and his eyes held the unmistakable telltale yellow of a transitioned Lycan. Claws tipped his fingers. Wolf and man seemed to battle for control, and Lex was emotionally raw. “So many nights I wished you were there, so I could tell you I loved you. Every night, I prayed you were safe. And many nights, I asked God why you couldn’t be mine. But. You. Were. And the idiocy of three people cost us two thousand years of happiness.”

“You’re right,” she said as she rose off the bed. “I can’t understand why any of this happened. I’ve questioned the very same thing, and can find no answer. But we’re here together now. And isn’t that what counts?” He watched as she took slow steps toward him, and his expression slowly began to soften. “In a matter of speaking, you claimed me that night in Portugal, and we’ve been together since.”

His eyes momentarily widened in surprise. “Yes, but we spent so many nights apart. Nothing should have separated us. Nothing.” He was right. There was no sense trying to talk him down when she believed what Lex said just as strongly as he did. “You mentioned Portugal. Were you following me?”

Nodding slowly, she now stood in front of him. “Yes. Jules made sure I had control of my hungers, and taught me how to use my strengths. Once that was done, and I was confident in my abilities, I went in search of you. By that time, you were serving the King. And I followed you on your missions.”

“When I saw you, I damned near lost track of what I was doing.”

She smiled, remembering making eye contact with Lex for the first time. The sensation was electric, the pull of a Lycan mate bond weakened, but still present. “But you did your job, and then you came to me.”

His claws retracted, and a smile curling his full lips, he nodded. “And then I came to you.” He pulled her into his arms, and embraced her firmly. “I mourn all the moments we lost.”

“As do I, Alexei. But we have the future.”

His chest shook as he exhaled a ragged breath. “Yes we do. I can’t lose you again, Elizabeth.”

“I’m here now, and I’m not going anywhere.”

Blog Tour with Review: Risen (Blood Eternal #1) by Cole Gibson

Posted on

Fans of Vampire Diaries and Twilight will be thirsting for this latest vampire addiction…

My aunt has been kidnapped by vampires, and it’s up to me to save her. Only…I had no idea vampires existed. None. Nada. I’m more of a reader than a fighter, and even though I’d been wishing to escape my boring existence in the middle of nowhere, I’d give anything to have it back now if it meant my aunt was safe.

Then there’s the vampire Sebastian, who seems slightly nicer than most of the bloodsuckers I’ve run into so far. Yes, he’s the hottest being I’ve ever come across, but there’s no way I can trust him. He swears he’s helping me get answers, but there’s more to his story. Now I’m a key pawn in a raging vampire war, and I need to pick the right ally.

But my chances of surviving this war are slim at best, when the side I choose might be the one that wants me dead the most.

My Review

“I Surrender to the music. I become the notes drifting from my fingers, filling the cabin and spilling out into the night. It’s only in this moment, alone in the darkness inside my head, that I finally feel safe. “

“The answers we seek might be the only things that can save us now.”

Risen follows the story of Charlie and Sebastian. Charlie has always wanted more out of her life. She is bored with the status quo and wants nothing more than to venture out into the world. That is until one day, Charlie’s whole world is turned upside down. Charlie is suddenly thrown into a world that she never knew existed. Sebastian promises to give Charlie answers, but Charlie isn’t too sure if Sebastian can be trusted. You see, Sebastian is a vampire and only time will tell if he is on the right side of the vampire war…

Risen was a quick and easy read for me. The story hit the ground running and captivated me from the very first page. I thought the story-line was fresh and intriguing. I wanted to know more and needed answers to all my burning questions. I liked learning about the different vampire clans and what started the war. I thought this book had a lot of action and it kept me on my toes. And while there was some romance, it was definitely the slow burn kind and not the main focus of the story. My only issue with the book was the ending. I felt like it ended rather abruptly and left a lot of issues unresolved. It wasn’t your typical cliffhanger ending.

Overall, I thought this book was a fun read. It was a different take on vampires with a slow burning romance. I still have a lot of questions that will hopefully be answered when the next book comes out. This is my first novel by Cole Gibson and I look forward to checking out more of her work in the future.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, via the publisher & NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*

Excerpt from Risen:

“Don’t say it like that, Charlie. I wanted to protect you.” She tugs on the edge of my cardigan, pulling me toward her. “I love you. You’re the most important thing in my life, do you understand?”

There’s a desperation in her eyes that tightens my throat. Swallowing hard, I nod.

She lets go of me with a sigh. “Maybe I took it too far.” She sweeps her dreadlocks over her shoulder and twists them tightly. “All I’ve ever wanted was to keep you safe.”

Safe. The world spirals, cold and slippery, down my spine. “What are you so afraid of?”

She opens her mouth only to shut it again.

Jax growls.

We turn as he claws at the door.

“The only thing there is to be afraid of,” she whispers. “The monsters.”

THE FIRST BOOK IN AN EXCITING NEW URBAN FANTASY SERIES BY BESTSELLING AUTHOR SARAH FINE.

One woman is in a world of otherworldly trouble—and she’s going to have to bet her life to save humankind.

Ernestine “Ernie” Terwilliger has put her dreams aside to look after her eccentric mother. Case in point: saving her from a mysterious stranger who’s just stormed the terrified woman’s antique store wearing a rattlesnake tattoo, leveling threats, and brandishing the weirdest deck of cards Ernie’s ever seen.

When Ernie grabs some of the cards and runs, she’s launched into a world she never knew existed—one her mother may know more about than she’s revealing. With a handful of stolen cards, Ernie has just been made an unwilling player in a game of good versus evil. But she’s not even playing with a full deck, and its original owner is more than happy to kill to get his cards back.

Suddenly Ernie’s matching wits and plays with the supernatural Immortal Dealers, who can raise empires, damn souls, and shape the world’s destiny. It’s up to Ernie to defeat the most brutal member of their order. And if her roguish new ally isn’t bluffing, he can help. The mystery is all in the cards, and to save her life—and humanity—Ernie had better learn how to deal.
