#Review #Paranormal = Blood Vowed by Traci Douglass

Blood Vowed (Blood Ravagers, #3)

Reverend “Rev” Walker, expected some backlash after he foiled The Council’s attempts to overthrow the Blood Ravager Biker Gang. What he hadn’t expected was to wake up in the last place he ever wanted to see again—a dank cell of The Council’s Siberian dungeon. Drained and chained, he faces certain death if he can’t escape from the hellish prison. Now, his only means of escape depends on him accepting help from a fellow prisoner, a woman whose very existence is a lie and the only one capable of awakening Rev’s long-dormant heart.

Claire Deveraux is Dygarian, a race of shadow-shifters who have been slandered and hunted to extinction by The Council. But Claire has used her years of enslavement well, reading her captors’ secret texts and hearing their whispered secrets. Now, after being locked up for a crime she didn’t commit, she plans to use her knowledge of the dungeon’s maze-like interior to gain her freedom, or die trying. Then a new prisoner arrives, a man Claire has dreamed of and knows in her heart is her destined mate, if only she can break through his walls.

On the run and threatened from all sides, will Rev and Claire learn to trust each other and their growing feelings for one another before it’s too late?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

I was so excited to read this book!!  I fell in absolute love with Rev and couldn’t wait to see what happened to him after the way the last book ended.  He is captured in a cell by the Council along with Claire.  She is some kinda special.  She is the last of her kind of shape shifters.

Claire is planning on escaping to get revenge on people that harmed her family.  Rev is all on board with the escape and revenge as well.  Rev does all he can to deny his attraction to Claire buuuut fails miserably.  His brooding male was funny to read along with Claire’s first experiences with Real Life.

The story and plot flow really well.  The chemistry between the two was written really well.  The story of Claire and her people were sad.  I loved Rev from the first time we met him in book 1 s I knew his book would be one I devoured.

Fresh, Flirty, Fun. Sweet, Sexy Romance.

My stories feature sizzling heroes with humor, quick wits and troubled pasts and heroines who are smart, tenacious, and always give as good as they get. I hold an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and I love cute animals, chocolate, coffee, hot British actors, and sarcasm—not necessarily in that order.

My books are published with Harlequin/Mills & Boon, Entangled Publishing, and Tule Publishing.

Blood Freed (Blood Ravagers, #2)

Elizabeth “Liz” Frost has always been the wild one. But now, with a niece or nephew on the way and her promise to become half of the new psychic Oracle team for the Blood Ravagers Biker Gang, she’s ready to turn over a new leaf. And what better way to start than by answering the call when gang leader Dante needs help? Her mission: to travel cross-country to get the information the gang needs to complete the Oracle Binding Ceremony. Should be easy, right? Except for the incredibly tempting lone-wolf shifter named Dex who’ll be her riding partner and protector on the journey.

Dexter “Dex” MacCallahan is tasked with guarding Liz Frost, one of the gang’s beautiful and bewildering new psychics. Dex can’t refuse the mission, but there’s one small problem. The time of his Rut is approaching, a rare occurrence where male wolf-shifters must physically bond with their chosen mate or face certain insanity and death. It could cost him not only the new life he’s built, but also his battered, scarred heart.

Together, Dex and Liz must search for the information they need before his old nemesis and a rival gang annihilates all they hold dear. But when the simmering chemistry between them boils over into searing hot passion, will they risk losing their hearts to save the ones they love?

I received this book from the authors for an honest review.

Man was I loving this book.  I sat and couldn’t put it down.  I was loving Liz, Dex, and Rev in the first book.  I gotta admit I wasn’t sure which guy I wanted Liz with.  Hell, I would have been thrilled with a little MFM action!!  But when I got to see the dynamics between Liz and Dex, they totally belong together.

Liz has lived in the shadow of her sister Anna forever. She never thought she was enough, so she took on the party girl, cant be hurt persona.  She wasn’t content to sit but needed to travel.  She need adventure and the thought of settling down to be the Blood Ravagers Oracle kinda scared her a bit.  But she demanded the right to go and figure out what was missing for the spell to bind her, her sister, and the guys together.

Dex has had a rough life.  A lone wolf hiding from his past and the horrors of his family’s murders.  He is not a fan of The Council and will always protect the guys in the Blood Ravagers.    When he is told to go and help Liz, he flips out.  His rut will be happening, and he is already attracted to his alpha’s sister in law.  Nothing good can come of this especially when the alpha demands you leave her alone…hand off!!

Dex and Liz go through a lot to realize they bother are MORE then they think they are.  They both have a lot of opening and soul searching to happen to finally realize they too deserve a HEA.  The angst is great.  The “rutting scenes” are fun times to read 😉 but the connection they both make and the realizations they make on this journey turn their lives upside down.

Rev………GAH…where is my older then dirty vampire.  What has happened to him?  I so need to read and see how the guys save this dark soul.

#WOTR18 #Review #Paranormal – Blood Bound (Blood Bound #1) by Traci Douglass


Blood Bound (Blood Ravagers, #1)

Anna Frost had a bad feeling when her twin sister, Liz, told her she’d run off with a member of the notorious Otherworld biker gang, the Blood Ravagers. And her unease skyrockets when her sister subsequently vanishes. The police have no authority and little interest, so Anna decides to take matters into her own hands by infiltrating the group to discover for herself what happened to Liz, where she meets….

Dante, half demon, half human. A mix of two worlds, accepted by neither, he’s had no choice but to learn the hard way how to play whatever side of the fence kept him alive during his nearly 500 years of existence. Now, as second-in-command of the Blood Ravagers biker gang, his survival depends on keeping his humanity a secret. Dante’s ultimate goal is to fulfill the vows he made over two centuries ago to create a world where half-breeds can live in safety and equality.

But when sheltered schoolteacher Anna finds unexpected, white-hot passion in the arms of Dante, will her quest for the truth cost him more than he ever bargained for? Or will they find a way to save Liz – and their love – together?

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

When the author approached me to read the book all she has to say was Paranormal and I was on board.  Yep I kinda like paranormal.  Anyway, I really had no idea what the book was about until I read the blurb that said demons, shifters, vampires who all hang at a bar and are in motorcycle gang…Uhm double and triple check right there.  Throw in they are 1%ers annnnd my heart is going wild.

This book is about Anna who is looking for her sister Liz.  Liz is the wild and crazy twin while Anna is the school teacher, responsible one.  She walks into Seven, the bar of the biker gang, and her entire world changes.  She meets Dante who is a lot more than JUST a human.

Dante is floored at this woman.  She is sassy, feisty and the other half to what he needs to save his people from the evil he is currently working with.  Don’t get me wrong, Dante is no angel, but he is trying to do right and fix some of the bad in the world.  He is also looking to make a safe haven for otherworlders like himself who have no place to go.

Anna and Dante had some steamy hawt sexy time for sure. Seems our Anna is a but of a masochist which our pain demon, Dante, is quite happy to help out *Wink wink*  The final conflict of the story will leave you super emotional because of the struggle our characters have to go through to stop the evil.

I enjoyed the book a lot and totally wanna read book 2 like ASAP.
