I don't want to leave those two stars dangling there like an accusation, so let me explain my reaction.

For some reason, BLOOD RUN COLD felt like a small story being given a staggering page count (185k words!) and I couldn't always put my finger on why. The characters were pretty simple. The worldbuilding relatively familiar. The machinations straightforward. And yet I could feel the outline flexing under the incidents. Often complications seemed to occur (Lucian's children, the offer to Frederic

Sadly this book is no longer available. It'll be like the elusive Bigfoot: I know there's a paperback copy out there in the wild somewhere.

Let me start out by saying that if you like nice, romantic vamps that ask before they bite, this book is definitely NOT for you. This vamp culture is savage, and I mean far beyond BDSM and safewords. Bloodplay? More like blood bath in some scenes. I have a feeling if vamps are really out there, they are more like these guys, and that they are different makes them extremely interesting to read about.

The authors did a great job with both characters and plot. I found the most fascinating couple to

A full-on read that kept me guessing all the way through. Loved the characters and their struggles and as always their discovery that they are capable of things they didn't dare dream of - love, emotion, pain, hatred, murder... Just fabulous

Wow...just Wow!!!
This was one intense read; so much action, passion and biting.
Definitely one hot; hell on wheels read.
I enjoyed the diversity of the characters. All of them played such an important role in the whole of the story.
I really really liked this book.
Highly Recommend.
Got about halfway through, and although it was written well it didn't grab my interest at the time. I think I'd like to have another go at it though.

Neither Frederik nor Lucian are "dark" characters. They are bad, really bad, to the bones and last drop of human/vampire blood. After first reading I liked Frederik, during the second reading I fully realized how monstrous he was. Nevertheless I didn't change the rating because it's not about liking or disliking MC: it's about bondage, domination , submission, sadism, masochism, humiliation, blood, sperm, pain, pain again and more pain and bloody sex. Nothing is safe and sane but everything is c ...more

“I'm a... seven-figure base salary, two digit million bonus a year asset manager..." Ghislain smiled, tiredly. "And you call me a 'pet?'"

Emil laughed softly and tucked a lock of hair behind Ghislain's ear, as if he would a child, or a pet. "My dear, I am a son of the Dalca family and I just beat you until you were red, then fucked you. Is there another term you prefer?”
