10*s. I recieved an eARC copy of this book directly from the author in return for an honest review.

I have to warn once again, this series is not for the faint of heart. With that said, oh Rue, you’ve done it again!

When Hunter’s Blood ended, Vanessa was finally accepting her full vampirism with her vamp lover and sire, Hunter. And now that the disease had completely taken hold of her, not even the diet pills can help her slake her growing thirst and her need to constantly fuck.

So with an insatiable Hunter at her side, they wreak havoc, leaving a trail of sex and blood in their wake. But Vane...more
I was given the priviledge to read this short story by Rue Volley. I have since bought one to support the hard work of the author. Nobody does erotica like Rue, she has her own brand of making you want more. I say Bring it On Rue!

Wow! What a thrilling, dynamic, steamy read! Rue Volley manages to sweep me off my feet into a world of old vampires, hot steamy sex, determined detectives, and fetishes. With a cliffhanging ending that has me wanting more.
Kaylen and Sebastian will take you on a journey...more
This story was another fantastic erotic by Rue Volley! Raw and gritty, this story drew me in and left me wanting more. Rue has a gift for storytelling and that gift was in evidence in spades in Hunter's Blood.

Vanessa is tortured with her past and the way it has changed her. As a girl she was fascinated with Hunter. He had a secret though, one that changed her life forever.

Dark passion and her baser instincts rule Vanessa now. Though she fights against what she is now, memories of Hunter refuse...more
Oh what a tease you are Rue Volley! I loved this story.. Raw, gritty, and brutal! Vanessa and Hunter grabbed a hold of me and didn’t let go! I couldn't put it down! Hunter’s Blood is filled with dark passion and has left me craving the next installment in this series. Blood and lust done in true Rue fashion!

Okay let me start by saying Rue Volley is freaking amazing. This is actually my first time reading her work but I am totally hooked now.
Hunter’s Blood is not for the faint of heart. If you like your erotica gritty and brutal, this book is for you!

Vanessa is a Baron’s daughter with a rare mental condition that affects her memory in addition to making her very lethargic. Her only male caller is a very handsome but dangerous man named Hunter. He awakens in her feelings that make no sense to her. Al...more

Catch & Release is by far my favorite of the Hunter’s Blood Series.

It begins with Hunter and Vanessa attempting to abstain from their bloodlust and killings. If you’ve watched True Blood, or any other sort of vampire media, this doesn’t always go as planned. Long story short, it doesn’t last long and we are thrown into the nitty gritty of it all. This is by far my favorite plot-line in the series and the twist in the end is reminiscent of the end of Razor (book one of her Razor Saga) You are...more

Make sure you have cold water for your shower when you read another masterpiece of Rue Volley’s books. Kaylen and Sebastian are investigators with the force. They are investigating a murder and Kaylen has found an odd coin near the crime scene. Knowing that her mother is in tune with art, they take the coin to her and leave it with her. Kaylen has a dream and the coin is all of a sudden in her possession. When she is awaken by a knock on her door a note is left for her to be at a particular loca...more
I was so fortunate to be able to read this before it was released, however, in support of Indy Authors, I also bought a copy. OMG! What a magnificent installment. Rue just blows my mind with her writing. I Loved it!

Hunter and Vanessa are such an amazing couple, I love the playful, yet sarcastic, banter between them. Warning this is a very graphic read that will make your e-reader smoke with it's explicit sex scenes, dark and twisting turns, and an ending that will make your jaw drop. I read it...more

Rue has been on my publishing books for 18 months now and this was her first piece to be published out side of Vamptasy. I purchased it through amazon and read it in one sitting. I loved it. Rue has a fab imagination and i feel absolutely privileged that we have published some of her books and I am proud that she has done some work for the lovely Sarah at Hot INK. I sit looking at her (6, yes 6 people!) published paperbacks on my shelf and I say be 'PROUD GIRL you are an amazing writer and lets...more
In just 62 pages Rue has painted a vivid picture of her characters, Michele or is it Emerson? And David, or possibly Misha? Oh yes, Another book done in true Rue erotic fashion.. Twists, turns, and hot sex! This one will keep you guessing for sure! Bring on the next book Rue Volley. I am holding my breathe over here!

Story: GOOD
Intimacy Level: D.R.I.P ( Don't Read In Public) / Sex-citingly GOOD
Enjoyment: GOOD


I was browsing for a vampire read and came across this book. Basically, to sum up this story, interesting, blood sucking, sexual cravings, a bit of murdering and vampires. And all of this in only twenty minutes. The opening paragraph should give you an idea of the story you're about to read. For me, the story had no depth really, so there was no attachment / bond I felt towards the characters.Thi...more

Shanna Roberson

Wow. Rue Volley has done it again! I am always surprised at her ability to write these fascinating storylines with just the right amount of fiery naughtiness. And whoa, was Switch all kinds of hot!!

Chloe watched her ex-boyfriend die right there in front of her. Nothing could have changed the whys or the hows. It was what it was. And it changed her whole outlook on life and death.

With her intimacy issues aside, Chloe is...more

Darkness to Light by Rue Volley

This series keeps getting better and better! I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to beta read for the lovely Rue Volley. Her wildly naughty imagination never disappoints and I can’t wait for the full length novel of Hunter’s Blood. Darkness to Light is the final short installment of Hunter’s Blood and it was a mind-bending journey for both Hunter and Vanessa.

I have to warn once again, this series is not for the faint of heart. With that said, Damnit Rue! I am utterly addicted to this series. With each new installment, I fall deeper and deeper in love with these naughty vampires.

At the end of Catch & Release, Vanessa leaves Hunter in dust. Tired of his constant crap, she wants to try and seek out her humanity without all the temptation for destruction that Hunter radiat...more

Rue is utterly amazing. <3

I have to warn once again, this series is not for the faint of heart.

Catch & Release kicks off with a struggling Hunter and Vanessa, trying to abstain from the sex, the blood and the unavoidable body count that comes with giving into their baser vampire instincts. Well, Vanessa is trying to maintain her humanity and Hunter is hanging on to his by a single thread. He could care less either way but he wants to try for Vanessa because he loves her in his own messe...more

EDITED: 8/2012

My rating is going back up. And I WILL finish this book!

"I grabbed at his face as he reached down and placed his hand on his hard shaft and gently pressed it against me and then it started to slide into me and at first it was a slight pressure and then as he lowered it started to hurt more, he pulled my wrist up as I moved from discomfort and he bit into me, I screamed as I took the rest of him deep inside of me and he tried to divert the pain to my wris...more

Hi y'all Anne here with my review for One Bite by Rue Volley. Let me start by saying no one and I mean no one does erotica like Rue!!! She paints such vivid scenes of lust, power, and deceit that you are compelled to keep reading. Now to the story, Kaylen is investigating a string of murders the hits insanely close to home when an inquiry causes someone she loves to be dispatched in a gruesome and horrid act of power play. The vampire is trying to make a point to Kaylen and almost succeeds until...more
Warning this an 18+ Read Only and it is Smokin' Hot!

I was given an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. OMG Rue Volley knocks it out of the ballbark with this HAWT DAYUM STEAMY read. They say a picture speaks 1000 words, hell just looking at the cover says volumes about what lies within.

First off, I have to say that the first line is by far THE BEST FIRST LINE THAT I HAVE READ EVER! I will not quote it, you will have to check it out for yourselves. I do not like spoilers nor d...more
I loved this book, it had a bit more going on then in the first one. I liked meeting the new characters and finding out who they truly, really are.

Vanessa is adjusting to being a vampire and still trying to curve her hunger, which sometimes don't work out to well. Hunter is the same ole' Hunter. Smart ass, bad ass vampire. There is a few twist and turns in the book and I liked seeing who Riley and Sage really were and that was kinda creepy. They are from Hunters past. I liked getting a little i...more
Let me just say first off, Rue Volley is amazing! I would love to get in that mind of hers for just a bit.

I got Hunter's Blood for free from Mrs. Volley her self for a honest review, and thats what Im fixing to do...

The begining of the book, I couldnt help but chuckle a bit with how she treated her "guest". I liked how she would slip back into her memories and we seen what happen to bring her to where she is now. If your looking for a read that has sex, blood and isnt for the faint at heart. We...more

The author spends as much time detailing the violence as the sex. Just know that from the start and you should be fine.

It has its moments (I like the Hunter character through most of the book), but it left me a little cold and with quite a few unanswered questions.

I was given the opportunity to read this installment before it was published. I still bought a copy in support of the author.

WOW! Two powerhouses of vampiric pleasure embark on a journey to seek revenge for Kaylen's mother's death. It picks up right where One Bite leaves off! Full of mystery, suspense, lust, revenge, anger, betrayal and Vampires, not to mention Tasteful Steamy Sex. The twists and turns are perfectly placed to paint an awesome picture of sexual gratification, only to awaken a fir...more

Rue, this was an AWESOME series! I couldn't put them down! The end of one always left you ready to find out what happened in the next book. Vanessa goes through a lot in this book. She starts to have some memories of things that happened a long time ago, while she has the memories she is locked up in some kind of home, and she remembers a lot of things from her past and who she created. The way it left off at the end was great. If you haven't read this series you need to, they are awesome!!!!! I...more
well now, it took me a little while to think of what i wanted to say and to put it simply....RUE MY GOD I LOVE WHEN YOU WRITE NAUGHTY!!!!!
listen up guys, seriously, yes...rue writes everything from ya all the way to some wonderfully naughty erotica, so there is something for everyone in her library, BUT.....that being said, if you love some wonderful naughtiness in your stories, i don't know what you're waiting for, because rue nails it (pun, not really intended, but then thought about it, and y...more

Rue Volley is a hero in many terms. She has written to entertain us in many different stories and I have enjoyed every single one of them. I am a huge fan of her works and can’t get enough of her writing and look forward to each new novel she puts out for us readers. This is a great short story by Ms. Volley. Vanessa has cravings that she just can’t satisfy. What has Hunter made her into? Her thirst will drive her to want and do many things but what if she can’t believe she can cause harm to any...more

HUH?! That's all I could say after reading this story.. I don't understand how it got such a high rating.. I have read better camp stories then this book.. I will say that it started off interesting but somewhere in between the flashbacks, present day, and future scenes, I got confused.. I didin't mind the blood or graphic violence. I didn't mind the sex (cause really who would?) I did mind that this book was confusing.. And that was enough for me to give this only one star....
