My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!
***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!! Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book! I have already bought my own copy too!

This boxed set contains 11 stories surrounding vampires and their courtesans whether they are human or vampire. I am still working on reading the set but I have read the first 6 stories at this point. I have yet to read a story I didn’t like,

I got this for Susan Griscom's contribution, Refrain, and I loved the novella with Neriza and Lyric! They were perfect for each other and I'd love for Lyric's bandmates and Neriza's sister to get stories too! I also adored Baxter!

Wonderful Journey Into The Darkness....

I've read every single book that has been published in this great world of Blood Courtesans and I have loved every single one of them, but this boxed set is the bomb!

This set contains 10 standalone "Blood Courtesan" novels written by 10 different authors. Each novel is original, has its own charm and its own approach to the fascinating world of Blood Courtesans. I enjoyed reading every single one of them but loved some stories more than the others.

"Reveal: Violet" by Michelle Fox – Great writing, intense and intriguing storyline and compelling characters – this story is an amazing page-turner. So very good!

Revealed by Michelle Fox*****
Violet is a smart scientist but she is no match for Pyros. In her effort to try to get Pyros attention she innocently draws the attention of another evil vampire. The very vampire she is stalking becomes her only escape. Violet is willing to take a risk but gets in way over her head, the reasoning for the data is justified but she is so desperate that her thinking isn't clear. I like her and her determination to discover the science side of vampires. Pyros is like a

Have only read the JULIA MILLS - COMNDEMNED book.
This book just grabbed my attention really well. I love the story and it is just such an exciting and ensnaring read.
The banter, tardiness and attitude of Bonnie make this a fun read. Loved how Bonnie goes from being a breathless twit to hard ass when she first meets Remy and then holds her own against some formidable people she meets along the way, Madame being one.

My review is for Revealed by Michelle Fox. As I read the other stories I will add to this. I’m sure they’re all 5 Stars. I just love all the Blood Courtesan books ever written. This one is the best I’ve read. I’m a lab tech so it was right up my alley when Violet was doing research and talking about Lupus and stuff. I also have an autoimmune disease. It was interesting how Michelle worked that in, along with some other things I won’t say because I don’t want to ruin the story. Py

I took my time reading this box set because I knew to soon it would be over and alas it's over. But I'll reread it again cause each and every story was awesome! Blood Courtesans are human women who needed something..the vampires also needed something..together they got more than they could have thought to have needed. Each one found the love and happiness they deserved. Good authors wrote great stories and gave us awesome characters. I fell in love with each vampire that showed

I admit it and this time it payed of like never before with some exceptions of course. I love it. The best read in some time and I recommend it for both experiences readers and beginners of paranormal romance. Keep them coming and will keep reading.

This is an excellent and diverse compilation of 11 Blood Courtesan stories and I have read them all. Each book has an intriguing storyline and I would certainly have no hesitation in recommending this box-set. A copy of this box-set was provided to me with no requirements for a review. I am voluntarily reading this box-set and my comments here are my honest opinion. My review for each story is given below:

Revealed By: Michelle Fox - 5 Stars
This book will keep you on the edge of your seat! From the sneaking into the blood ball, to a crazy a$$ vamp who doesn't understand the word no. You will want to keep reading and when your kindle says dead battery.. you are so going to groan in frustration! There are so many spots that I would mention but it would revile the plot with the twists and turns

This is a new collection of Blood Courtesans books written by various authors which you will love reading! Thank you to Michelle Fox for pulling this collection together! Blood Courtesans in general are ladies who provide a classy meal to wealthy vamps for a hefty price! The stories are widely different and always excellent! Below is a review of two of the books (and a sneak peak teaser of one more) as an example of the variety of stories you can find in this set.

Review for Refrain by Susan Griscom

Vampires! Yes! It’s so hard to take a vampire story and make it unique. I often find that there is a lot of monotony with them. But this is hardly the case for the Blood Courtesans. In this world vampires are real and out in the open. They are normal people like you and me but they drink blood…maybe they are not what you consider completely normal, lol! Neriza is our female lead in Refrain. She lost her parents in a horrible car accident and this accident has l

After being attacked by a vampire goes on a mission. She wants answers. There's something in her blood. To get the answers she infiltrates the Blood Ball to see Zopyros Persopoulus. Of course her plan totally backfires, because let's be honest Violet is a scientist not a spy. But when things go bad, they go really bad when Violet, catches the attention of a soci

If you have yet to read any of the Blood Courtesans series, this collection is a great beginning. Anyone familiar with the Blood Courtesans series knows that these women commit themselves to the vampires for noble reasons. This self-sacrifice comes with both its dangers and its rewards and the stories in this collection, Awakenings, continue in this vein (excuse the pun). They are a wonderful addition to the Blood Courtesan world as they each weave a story that is filled with action, intrigue, p ...more

Welcome to the world of the Blood Courtesan. If you are not aware, this is a series by Michelle Fox that starts with Reborn: Myra. This box set is all set in the same world, but with a multitude of stories by different authors, all putting their slant on Michelle Fox's world.

REVEALED by Michelle Fox – What would you do if you found out the one thing that can nourish a person could, in fact, kill them instead? Personally, it would scare me but make me determined to find out why, all while trying to avoid the advances of the one that could quite possibly be my mate. I love the twists & turns this story has.

What a great short story! Full disclosure, Vampire is not my favorite genre. However, I know that anything I read of Michelle Fox I will enjoy and that is for sure with this one. Since it was the first offering in the set I began and was hooked right in.

This is a great opportunity to get ten fabulous books for one low price. I have really loved the series and am glad to add them all to my library.

The books are all written by different authors. It makes for an interesting experience. You have different characters that are all part of the blood courtesan world. Some of the characters are more voluntarily involved and others need the money and look at it as one of their few options. There are sexy vamp and cruel ones too.

I do like that you get so
