Fun & Sexy Read!

What a great start to a new series. More adventures from the Otherworld Paranormal that brings us to Sabi, an earth witch who’s main powers are visions of the future and since she has just come into her powers now she has to learn from them in order to survive and help others along with being an asset to the Otherworld Council.

Ryker, Otherworld Warrior known for being a sexy play boy has started seeing Sabi and their erotic loves scenes definitely kindle up some steamy heat,...more

Fantastic story! Tainted blood is not only sizzling, it’s exciting. I love the passion build up between Ryker and Sabi and the action adventure story is very exciting to read. What I liked most was Sabi starts out very timid because of her powers, but she finds her strength and grows in no time. As much as I regret to say I’m not going into the storyline because this is one book you need to try for yourself. Of course, you can read Stacey’s other books, but there’s no need just jump into this o...more
In Tainted Blood Ms. Kennedy takes readers back to the world she created and expanded in her Magical Sword series. Sabi is a gentle, kind witch who has visions of violent future events. She doesn’t fully understand, or embraced her gift and therefore lacks the focus necessary to be able to comprehend the visions and find her place among the supernaturals of the Otherworld.

Sabi is involved with Ryker who is a Guardian meaning he is one of the protectors gifted with extraordinary strength and abil...more

Wow, how I love this book. It was great!! Once I started it, I had to finish it. Ryker and Sabi are just totally hot together. A relationship started on just sex and a mutual attraction turned into such a loving one.

Ryker and Sabi share that same passion Kyden and Nexi had but in a completely different story. Nexi could kick some ass but Sabi needs that bit of protection. She is not weak but she is just not a fighter. And I love seeing the strong man protecting his women. I loved seeing him hel...more

Witches, guardians and vampires... oh my! The new world of the Dark Elements series has a bit of everything. Earth witch, Sabi, who has the gift of visions. Ryker, the brooding, sexy alpha-guardian who is falling for her but hasn't realized it yet. Sabi's friend Nexi, a really cool witch, and badass chick; and her guardian mate Kyden. The constant bickering and competitiveness between Kyden and Ryker.

They will bring you into the Otherworld with them, and...more

Read my original review on Paromantasy
Tainted blood is filled with blood-boiling romance, heart-racing danger, and twists and turns that will leave you racing through the pages. We are transported back to the Otherworld with this series focusing on Sabi, a witch who has the ability to see premonitions, and Ryker, a Guardian with a playboy past and serious fighting skills who has his sights on Sabi. The two give us one of the most passionate and action-packed books that will leave you breathless...more
Saby is not my favorite character. She's too much of a loner and slightly stupid. She reminds me of a teenager. Extremely uncomfortable in her own skin. Nexi is a better heroine than her because she lets out what she's thinking and does what she wants. Saby just hides in the corner and cries.
Interesting story of a witch who is paired with a Guardian. When vampires start murdering humans they are sent to learn why. Good characters. Proofreading needed.
