“Flora, that’s a beautiful name,” Maxwell stares intently at me, his eyes raking from head to toe then back again, making my feet shuffle and my heart rate explode in my chest. “I think you’ll do nicely for my time here. Remember, Flora, you are mine for the duration of my visit. All mine. After I leave you will get paid and can go on with your life however you see fit.”

I love A.K. Michaels' books, she is a wonderful author. And this book is no exception.
This opens with Flora trying to figure out how to escape an abusive father and pack. When she finds the perfect escape she is worried she may not be able to go through with it. Flora being a half breed, her father an alpha, escape was almost impossible. In walks Maxwell, a richer than rich Vampire who knows what he wants and gets it, coming to claim his inheritance and get the hell out of dodge. Maxwell is pro

I love this series of books and this little gem rates right up there. Flora is the put upon, abused and degraded daughter of a local Wolf Alpha. She can't shift and he enjoys coming up with cruel taunts and punishments for her. She finally sees a way to flee by signing up to be a Blood Courtesan. And wouldn't you know her luck, her Vamp is pretty much her new neighbour!

Maxwell Steele (previously Forbes) has returned to Scotland after centuries away to settle the estate of his long detested and n

And AK Michaels does it again and in a big big way. Escape is Flora's story in the Blood Courtesans series, although each story is a stand-alone. A novel that grips you from page one. Flora is so adorable and loveable. This story was a no-regrets ride until the end, which had a brilliant solution as a finale. Ms. Michaels' work has a way of pulling you in and she has again managed to create an awesome page turner. A great little novel that ended too quickly for me..I need more and more Ak Michae ...more

Where to start !!! yes ok the begining this book is a totally amazing, the main character Flora is just a breath of fresh air, not a sappy blonde but a firey red headed braizen Scottish Lass, that will do what ever it takes to get away from her father. She has bite and flare and is something so different to the normal Courtesan that Maxwell Steel employees. Can she Escape can her vampire employer help her will the cold hearted vampire even try. What an amazing book keeps you flipping the pages l ...more

I was lucky enough to be sent this book as an ARC to preread before release. Here is my review.

I have read other books by this author and enjoyed each one in turn. This is a different style of book. If I am honest I wasn't sure whether I would enjoy it as these are not books I have read in the past. So the story starts with Flora, a hybrid, half human half wolf not able to shift. Escape is about Flora and how she escapes the terrible life she is in living with her father's wolf pack. She runs aw

Flora is desperate to escape her father and his pack, the man that never wanted her a 'halfbreed' but as Alpha, had no choice but to claim her when her mum died.
The bullying and abusive way Flora is treated by her father and the pack is too much to bear so when she sees a chance to escape she knows it's worth risking her fathers wrath.
Maxwell has returned to his childhood home to settle his fathers estate and is looking for a blood courtesan to serve his needs while he's there, when Flora arriv

Vampires sure have come a long way from when I was a girl, yes they can still be cruel and scary, but no longer as bad as I remember them being.
This book set in Scotland, oh yes it appears they have vamps there too. Maxwell comes home to take over his Fathers escape, a man he thoroughly hates as he blames him for his beloved Mother's death.
He will need to feed of course and this is where the Courtesans come in, namely Flora.

I absolutely loved this book!!!! Maxwell Steele and Flora's characters were amazing in this story. The escaping of Flora's father all the way to the ending had me hooked! Didn't put it down for a single second!! Although, I do have to admit Ava's books never disappoint me, so this was no surprise. Great work, Ava!!!!!!Escape: Flora

I really enjoyed ready about Flora and Maxwell's story. Flora's life was heartbreaking. Maxwell's story was devastating. Would Flora's plan work out for the best? Would Flora and Maxwell overcome their problems? Sorry no spoilers here. You will just have to read for yourself. Quick read when life and holidays don't interrupt you. Ava stories have always engulfed me and this was no exception.

Escape: A Vampire Blood Courtesans Romance

Flora has never really known her father until she lost her mum in a car accident when Flora was fifteen that her father took her in. For four years she has been a slave, abused and always called a half breed. Her father was alpha wolf and her mother was human. In her father's pack half breeds are worthless. So when Flora gets a chance to sneak out for open auditions for a blood Courtesan she jumps for it. Hoping Mr Maxwell Steele will pick her. Max wants

Max and Flora...I think I love them.

Somehow this review did not go thru but I am fixing that right now! This series is so good and even though it is supposed to be a business arrangement between a vampire and a Courtesans it turns into love. This book is no different. Max knows what he wants when he sees the striking young lady and he does not stop until he gets her. Flora is a halfbreed and her father the alpha of a wolf clan in the area treats her like carp.

Fantastic read

This was such an awesome read. I don't know where to start. I love Flora. She's got sass, spunk, and great amusement. Max well give me that Vampire any day. This journey is done very well. The writing and flow of this book is great. I love the Courtesans, and highly recommend you don't miss this one.

Another good book!

You just come accustomed to know what to expect from AK Michaels. She is the queen of paranormal and this book was no different.
Flora's story was intriguing from the first page. From the issues she has grew up with, to the life she enters now. I admit, I wanted to jump into thee book and slap her dad good looking.
I enjoyed this story and now I want more of Flora.

Max and Flora is a beautiful story. There is love, passion and happiness along with respect and honesty between the characters. I wish it were longer, but at least there is a second part so here I go again.

I think this is my favourite from the Courtesan series. It combines wolves, Vampires and Scotland, 3 of my favourite things.

Escape - is an action packed storyline with a fiesty young female in the midst of a decision that will change her life.

I'm off to read Freedom now :)

This one of Flora and Max is incredible from start to finish. Fast paced page turner. I couldn't help but falk head over heels in love with Mr. Steele. I loved his point of view, his temper, and the way he handles Flora. Flora's innocence and reasoning is endearing and lovable.

This was a good story, it flowed fast & smoothly, kept my interest until the end. World building is real good, Flora's accent came thu on paper, which doesn't always work out that way in books. Flora & Max make a perfect couple, with the building connection & not instant love (thank you for that A.K. Michaels & Michelle Fox!). That instant love isn't always believable as love, but translates as lust. I would have loved more deets on Flora after transformation, for her special abi ...more

Even Vampires do not like abuse, especially towards a family member. There are some that are plain evil, but most have accepted their plot and try to be better than is percieved, although circumstances can sometimes push them over the edge, which is what happen to Maxwell when he discovers Flora's flight from her wolf father.

Flora is a half breed daughter of an alpha who's life has been hell since her human mother died and her father claimed her. She is abused by him and the pack. Her only respi
