If it's not one thing, it's another.

Felipe, one of New Orleans's most infamous--and crazy--vampires is back in town. And to say he's unhappy is an understatement.

Duprees and Williams have to track down Felipe, fast, before he claims any more victims. If that means making a deal with the Devil--otherwise known as St. Germaine--and using an untrained dhampir, so be it.

Independednt reviewer for Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.

This is book 3, read books one, Shades of Gray and two, Shades of Desire before reading this one.

I am, unfortunately, losing interest in these. The first book was full of hints of the future, none of which have been pulled off yet. there was a deadth of Jude's best friend in book one, but it takes til book three to for Judeto express any sorrow at her passing.

Jude herself is beginning to grate on my nerves, and her wit and humou

Well, wow. So, Jude is still pregnant but it's not much now. We meet our lovely little ladies through name only for now, but it's amazing to see Jude growing with them. And there's this mind blowing spin, which I must say I had an inkling since book one, but I never expected the author to do. And this time, it leaves both Theo and Williams also mind blown trying to pick up the pieces for Jude. And Felipe, a vampire from the past, has come back to the present, but he's not killing people, he's ki ...more

This is a fun series. Each installment adds a new element to the series and SHADES OF BLOOD adds more then one.

Jude is getting more pregnant with the twins and I cant wait for them to finally come. I love that each book reveals a little more about the "bumps" although now they are known by name. The twists that come concerning them in SHADES OF BLOOD is a doozy. I don't think I really expected what was revealed, but I was not overly shocked when I found out. There is a brief relationship problem

To see review at Confessions

This book directly continues where Shades of Blood left off. It’s a couple of months later, and Jude is more pregnant then ever when she realizes something about the twins she is carrying that leaves Theo and William in a spin. She doesn’t have time to process it as there is a new vampire in town, Felipe, who is the story of legends and commonly referred to in those vampire tours that recount tales of legends and myths.

Another good book from L.M. Pruitt! It picked right up where it left off in Shades of Gray. While the book is not packed with sex it has a touch of sensuality that adds to the forming relationships. It continued to be unpredictable, exciting, fun, funny, gruesome and downright startling at times. All of it combined made for a book that one could not put down until the very end.

Jude is still leading the Covenant and still in a relationship with Theo. They seem to be very happy (well Jude and Theo

Shades of Blood is the third book in L.M Pruitt’s Jude Magdalyn series. I have totally fallen in love with this series and this book is no exception. In Shades of Blood, we finally get some answers that have been perpetuated through the series, but like any good writer of a series she still left us with a whole lot of questions. I still love the love triangle of Williams, Jude and Theo. Even though by the end of the book it is kinda resolved, but I think like the Twilight love triangle it will a ...more

Fantastic! I can't wait to start book 4.
Sep 13, 2012 Beverly rated it really liked it
My thoughts:
Another great story by L.M. Pruitt! Action, adventure, romance, good vs. evil - a little bit of everything that makes a reader thrilled to keep turning the pages. The characters are wonderful! The relationships are tricky and endearing. The interaction between the characters keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. The reality of "the bumps" is an intriguing twist! I can't wait for more!

This is book three in the series and what I would refer to as a good middle or filler book.
It has been some time since I have read the first two so I was not as "up on events" as I probably should be, however, I was able to keep pace because of the formula of the storyline.
Not one of my favorite books or book seirseries in this urban/fantasy genera but still a fun read.

I like this series and the host of characters it has. This book was good as far as story line, but there were so many typos and awkward transitions that the story was lost. The best part of this book was the Epilogue. I look forward to seeing what happens next. I just hope that the books spends more time in the hands of an editor before being released to the public.

More twists than a bag of pretzels. The magic and mayhem continues in the latest Jude Magdalyn installment. Meet a new villain and visit some old friends. Highly entertaining.
