*I was provided with a free copy of this book in exchange for a review*
For the first time in a really long time I don’t really know what to say. This book has rendered me speechless and unfortunately I don’t mean that in a good way. I just didn’t like this book at all and even though it is short I couldn’t bring myself to finish it once I got to the half way stage.
I found this book difficult to understand from the outset. I felt that little effort had been ...more
When i saw the blurb of this book, i found the theme very interesting, Vampire Kingdom meets Rapunzel sort of style. which is why i chose this book. It's quite quirky.
However, the interest of being quirky and original sometimes ended to disaster. As i don't like the characters, and how it's all warrior and princess dresses yet you have advance technology as well. OTT, it's like the film of modernized Hamlet. Less is sometime ...more

I really liked this book. It could use a little more editing for some grammar, punctuation, and spelling. Also there are a couple places where a person will "stretch out on his body" but then the next sentence she is leaning down to kiss him even though she was already down. Nothing major and certainly not the worst I have seen by any means.

The story starts off with a wedding. The author throws a lot of information at you all at once. It's almost to the point of overload. I'm like "stop no more". lol. I almost put it down because of the amount of information thrown at me about this new world. She made me think that ...more

I am actually rating this 4.5. The book starts off at a supernatural wedding with Gerrod watching Abigail and I so loved his reaction to her lol. I love it when the big macho vamp can't deal with his feelings for the little human or mate lol. He can't understand why he is s pulled to her until later when he finds out she is his blood rose. Abigail is human and finds out she has some traits that humans should not have one being that she can speak telepa ...more
This book puts a spin on the typical vampire romance, throwing in fated mates, "mastyr" status, and the fabled "blood rose." There was a lot of sizzle and an equal amount of story all rolled in one solid read.
Gerrod is the mastyr vampire (you get over the spelling) of a Realm adjacent to our normal world. With an incredible amount of power comes a never ending hunger. No matter how much blood he consumes, he always craves more. Ther ...more

Gerrod is a Mastyr vampire, which means he's the chief of his territory. He's got some issues with blood. He's never satisfied & has basically been starving for 150 years.
Abigail is a human who is starting a business in the realm world. It turns out she's a blood rose who's the only one who can satisfy Gerrod's needs : blood, emotional & physical.
