Seduction by Blood

All of the London is convinced Jack the Ripper has returned to London, butMalik knows better. He knows the familiar scent of a Made, one that has survived longer than he should have. But, while he is pursuing the killer, he cannot keep his mind on it completely.Mrs. Diana Simpson has become too much to ignore. From her haughtiness, to the simmering passion he sees lurking behind the pain in her eyes, he recognizes his mate.

Diana has accepted this new part of her life, but she is not ready to bind herself to any man, human or vampire. Her first marriage left much to be desired and she is not ready for that disappointment again. Still, each time they are together, the passion they feel explodes and neither of them are ready for the repercussions of their actions. Especially when the new killer sets his eyes on Diana.

First things first…..Diana and Charles??? BWAHAHAHAHAHA

Ok….I hate historicals but a vampire historical by Melissa Schroeder….definitely some good stuff!!  I totally felt connected to Lady Diana (snicker) and everything she felt about herself and her past. Malik (like all of Melissa’s heros) is of course smokin hot and I can see why Diana would think he wasn’t interested in her so when she finds out he is it is enticing. The mystery of the Ripper had me racing thru to see who done it!

This is a great article! a lot of good points and inspiration. I’ve been reinventing me for about 10 months so far and I’m down 55llbs, I can walk up the stairs without being out of breath and I can walk 4mph on the treadmill and I’m up to walking 6 miles a day which wouldn’t take so long if I could run LOL. I’m down from size 18 to 14 and it probably wouldn’t take so long except I like to eat. The newest goals are to eat more vegetable and less ice cream *snicker*

In the year since her life was torn apart, Kit Colbana has slowly rebuilt herself. There’s a promise of hope in the relationship with the alpha of the local shapeshifters and she no longer comes screaming into wakefulness. Life’s not perfect but then again, when was it ever?

When her best friend Justin comes to her for help, there’s little question as to what her answer will be. Witches are disappearing and Justin won’t rest until he has answers. Soon, they learn that it’s not just witches who’ve gone missing, but vampires and shifters, too.

Unlikely alliances are forged as Kit and Justin found themselves drawn into a twisted web of lies and betrayal. As the clock counts down and the culprit behind recent disappearances is revealed, those Kit loves the most become the target of somebody who will kill to protect an ugly secret.

This book is utterly fantastic! I love Kit and Damon and Doyle and Justin. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the book and once I started it I couldn’t put it down. I laughed, I cried, I screamed and sometimes my heart raced. I wanna be badass like Kit and I want my own Damon.
This series is a must and you must start at the beginning to get every twist and turn and it is completely worth it, go get them all!

QUOTE: I’m a successful, beautiful woman providing love to the world. The should be enough…shouldn’t it? ~ Parvati

HEROINE: Parvati Shiva
HERO: Colin Patterson

BLURB:

Welcome to the Mystic Zodiac Series.
High atop Mount Olympus, the ancient Gods and Goddesses still reside, hidden from mortal view.
They have always been there.
WILL always be there.
Watching…
Judging…
Meddling.
They dabble in the lives of humans and lesser immortals, known as Mystics.
For fun. Out of boredom. Simply because they can.
They thrive on watching people squirm under their thumbs. Laugh and celebrate each other while plotting to top what they did.

This is where our story begins…
~~~~~

Parvati Shiva, a true descendent of the Goddess of love and devotion, is fed up. She runs a successful dating site, connecting Mystics and humans all over the world with their one true love. The only she hasn’t been able to find love for is…her.

When a hacker gets into her network and website, shutting down her site in the height of the busy season, she calls on her cousin Jag for help, who in turn reaches out to an old friend.

Colin Patterson, IT guru and confirmed bachelor, quickly agrees to help his friend’s sister out with her computer problem, hoping it will be a long drawn out process. He’s eager to escape his mother’s matchmaking Valentine’s Day party. She’s invited all of the single women—and a few men—to jump-start his dating life, something he has no interest in at all.

One mistaken identity later, Colin ruins his chance with the beautiful Indian woman he’s instantly attracted to. Will he be able to prove he isn’t a boss bashing idiot, save Parvati’s company, and win her affections before he doesn’t have a reason to stick around?

Warning: This book contains a geeky hero who can’t keep his mouth shut, a strong willed businesswoman dealing in love, and an attraction that neither can deny.

Please note: This book has a hot M/M scene. It does not involve the hero of this story.

Totally adorable. I like Vati very much and her cousin Jag too! I was laughing so hard when Colin first met Parvati I wasn’t sure how he was ever going to get her to forgive him. A sweet and sexy story.

Meet Jimmy. Quiet brother, sharp shooter, dangerous one—to save his family he must leave them and undertake a mission where the only certainty is death.

When it comes to hitting a target, he’s the man for the job…

They know their enemies are coming for them, and the best course of action will send one of their own on a path for certain death. Jimmy Morning Star volunteers, because unlike his siblings—he has no one waiting for him at home. Young Shane refuses to be left behind and now Jimmy must undertake the dangerous task while keeping the young man alive. Together, they will leave Dorado and journey north—first to hunt the doppelganger and then to kill Adam MacPherson.

When a vision quest rousts her to hunt, she will never miss her target…

Blue Eagle is one of the last of her kind, and gifted with Shamanic magic. Plagued by dreams that ask her endlessly for help and a vision quest that warns her destiny lies beyond the bounds of her tribe, she fights against the impetus to abandon those she cares for. When Blue narrowly escapes a slaughter, she understands the truth of her quest and strikes out on her own to place herself directly in the path of the hunters.

The closer he looks…

Quanto’s cryptic warning to keep the eagle alive is the only clue Jimmy has to the Cheyenne woman’s impact on his life, but it’s not her skills or her magic that worries him—not when need burns in his veins from the moment he sets his sights on her. He has to finish his task, but is he willing to sacrifice the one woman he could love to save everyone he cares about?

His mission. Her magic. Their migration.

So here’s the deal, this is one intense hang on to your hat read and you won’t want to put it down. There’s so many answers and even more questions and you’ll be sitting on the edge of your seat sucking it all in. While you can read it alone or first it is that much better if you read it in the order it belongs because there is soooo much going on and you definitely don’t wanna miss a thing!!!  so int he interest of making sure you get all the good stuff you can here’s the links for the rest of the series in order…..Trust me you wanna get caught up cuz WOW!

blood wolf dawning

If this was what falling for someone did to a person—what craving them felt like—then Sayre Murphy wanted no part of it…

Ever. She might be young and inexperienced, but she was a woman. And she had finally had enough! Cian Hennessey might be the most magnificent, infuriating, arrogant male she had ever known. But the tall Bloodrunner treated her as if she were nothing more than a child, making it painfully clear that despite whatever connection they shared, he’d never see her as an adult female. After disappearing from her life for five years, the werewolf was back, claiming that she was in serious danger and must drop everything to go with him immediately.

Cian was as deadly as he was beautiful. But the young witch knew he would never cause her physical harm. The safety of her heart, however, was a different matter…

Sayre is one of my favorite heroines of this series. I was heartbroken when Cian left and I wanted to punch him. I got this on my kindle this morning and I couldn’t put it down, it was intense and the whole story was one very long foreplay 🙂
