Since their father’s death, Lady Lucy Drake’s brother, the new Earl of Wrenshire, seems determined to leave this family in ruin. When Lucy learns that her brother’s gambling has gotten himself into debt to the notorious rake, the Duke of Greystone, she does the only this she can to save her younger sister for being married off to a lecherous, old man, she goes to the Duke and offers her innocence to the Duke in exchange for her brother’s debts. But when she learns that the debts are much larger ...more
A Voracious Reader (a.k.a. Carol)
Lucy Drake goes to the Duke of Greystone intending to give her innocence to him in exchange for the money her brother owes him. The Duke agrees but instead of one night with her he wants two weeks of carnal pleasure. She protests, but when Lucy finds out her brother owes not 1,000 pounds as he told her, but 30,000, she agrees to his terms in order to save her family.

However, they are each hiding a big secret from the other. Lucy is actually a dragon shifter and the Duke is a vampire. Not just an

This isn't my first Sharon Page book and I had been a big fan of her up to now. Unfortunately, this book is really more of a 2.5 stars than 3. The first half or so was good with intrigue and lots of sex, a workable plot and easy to like or hate characters. Lucy is a dragon and Sinjin is a vampire. That alone was intriguing.
Then came the typos. There were actually quite a few in one single chapter as if the line editor simply skipped it. They weren't just spelling errors either but lines like he

Now as you read this, keep in mind that I love Historical romances, as well as paranormal ones, so to have those two genres TOGETHER is very nearly a perfect book for me.

This book is a bit steamier than I’m used to of late, but considering there is a WARNING on the back, that’s to be expected….and anticipated? Yes, I had that in mind when I asked for this one.

We start out with Lucy Drake; her brother has managed to get himself into pretty deep trouble, the least of which may be his gambling de

I hate certain surprises in book. This is partially my own fault, but I did look for this information before I accepted this book and the back cover blurb didn’t give me enough info on this. This is the 5th book in
a series and it is a historical.

Being the 5th book in the series was not a problem. Blood Secret works excellently as a stand-alone. I looked at the previous four books and as far as I could tell the main characters from those books did not have a role in this book. That was a shocki

Favorite Lines: "You have the most lush and beautiful arse I've ever seen. I would love to give you an orgasm by pleasuring it." (p. 60)

Warning: Expect tons of hot, kinky sex. If that's not what you're looking for don't pick up the book. It's also book five in a series. I didn't realize that when I started reading. I think had I known it would have clarified the roles of vampires and dragon shifters much sooner than I realized. It's a historical, paranormal romance.

Okay, I'm going to be extremel

I just want to start off saying i constantly rolled my eyes throughout the entirety of this book. She was very naive and too trustworthy; Granted Lucy did not who sinjin really was. The book has very kinky sex scenes so if you're into erotica you may like it. For a virgin she was very adventurous. I don't know I just felt she was idiotic because he was using her the whole time and planned to harm once he got what he wanted. This truly is a case where Lucy from the very started confused sex with ...more

Blood Secret by Sharon Page
Grade: DNF

Blood Secret had everything I wanted in a historical/paranormal romance: dragons, vampires and lots of dirty sex. Unfortunately nothing in this book worked for me especially the dirty sex. Lucy Drake is a shape shifting dragon who becomes Duke Greystone’s sex slave in return for saving her brother. The dialogue is horrible, the characters weren’t likeable and the sex seemed forced. I had a lot of problems with the sex scenes mostly because our virgin heroine

I enjoyed the first few books in this series but for some reason I cannot get into this story which rather disappoints me. It has the same mix, a hunky vampire, a female shape shifting dragon and lots or erotic couplings but it is not doing it for me the way the earlier books did. Maybe it is time to move to another genre, maybe this one has lost interested for me. I got to page 150 and called it quits - it took me about 3 weeks to get there too. Instead I am going to read another book with the ...more

While overall I enjoyed this book, there were a lot of holes in the plot. There was some hints about Sinjun's nephew being different (levitating and his coma-like sleep) but this was not really addressed by the end of the book. I had some thoughts on what they meant, but like I said it was never clarified. There was also no real answer as to what Lucy's change at the end means. Also, I thought the re-writing of Sinjun's history at the end of the book was unnecessary.

Really good. Usually books from her Blood series are mmf - this one was mf but still the author packs it full of kinky. I always look forward to when this author has a new book out and this one did not disappoint. You definitely have to be a certain kind of person to enjoy a deeply erotic paranormal love story between a dragon shifter and a dragon slaying vampire, but I am that kind of person.

As with all of this series I think it was pretty well written. I am not a huge fan of historical romance/erotica but it is not overpowering in this series. I don't normally like children in books but James was so far in the background that it made it a little better. Pretty good, pretty good.
