Erin drove me absolutely nuts in this installment, but thankfully my sweetheart Dante found a way to dominate the narrative. Other vampires, origin and identities unknown, are sampling the delicacy that is Erin's blood. Dante is determined to find out who keeps going after her and to find out more about the woman who kept him captive for so many years. He's not sure who to trust or even what his next steps should be, but what he does know is that nothing and no one, not even Erin herself, is goi ...more

As Dante and Erin fall deeper and deeper into the cosmic pull that binds all the mysteries surrounding why just keep piling up. With every step towards an answer it only opens the door to more questions with no answers. Dante knows he needs patience to allow Erin to fully come to grips with the revelations he has thrown on her, but he won’t give her space or distance when her safety is at risk. Dante needs her to keep an open mind but in the end it may be him who needs to open his mind to find t ...more

The suspense in this book is ridiculous. I found myself flying through it because i had to know more of what is going on. When everything finally comes out i know its gonna be a bomb that is gonna knock everyone down. I cant wait to find out though!

There is so much growth in the characters in the book and you finally get a few answers youve been dying to know for a while. New characters come into play that i know will be important as the story goes.

Helen Hardt just keep getting better and better with these books. I am so hooked. Dante and Erin's love continues to grow and she gets more and more curious about the lives of vampires and their need for blood. Dante is more determined than ever to find the one who captured him and held him captive for so many years. It is so hard to do these books justice with these reviews without spoiling them for everyone

It’s almost a good thing there’s a wait for the next book. It’s going to take me a while to process what I just read. Ghosts, demons, abductions, and death, what more can Helen Hardt add to this wonderful story? I guess we’ll have to wait to find out. This was another gem!

Very slow

I could not wait for this book to be over. I refuse to not finish. I’m a big fan of Helen but this book was not enjoyable and really lacked a solid story. It did not hold my attention well at all. Disappointed.
A genially written and enthralling romantic suspense that will take over all your senses...

Okay, so there's really not much more I can say from my previous review of parts 1 & 2 of the Blood Bond Saga. Yes, a lot has happened, but to go into the depths would be to venture into spoiler territory. I have never liked spoilers, so I'm going to steer well clear of it.

What I am going to say is that this story just keeps getting better and better as it unfolds. The characters are progressing beauti

This book starts with a mystery that has yet to be solved. It’s the driving force for this story. Even though Erin and Dante become more intimate here, we are pulled deeper into a mystery that starts with Dante but weaves itself into Erin’s world.

One of our secondary characters has returned to add to the mystery. And our author had added in a new character. We’ll just have to wait and see if he helps toward a solution or if just add to what has yet to be solved.

I thought Part 4 was great, but Part 5 was even better, it was exceptional. Finally Ms Hardt has given some answers to the questions that have been running through my mind. new characters have been introduced to the story, upping the mystery and intrigue that was already present.

Dante's father is now in the picture, or rather his father's ghost is, and he is helping them unravel the mystery confronting them. Now that Erin knows the truth regarding Dante's abduction, she

Dante is hell bent on finding more information from the ancient Vampyre Texts but some force is trying to stop him. He's desperate for answers and his and Erin's life depends on it.

Erin tried so hard to resist Dante but giving in seems like the only thing that'll bring her relief. But she still can't seem to come to terms with Dante's truth. Unfortunately, more vampires have been lured by her scent and she's in more danger now than ever.

William Shakespeare wrote, “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, then are dreamt of in your philosophy.” This concept is illustrated beautifully by Ms. Hardt in this next phase of Erin and Dante’s story. Each one has questions and the answers are a challenge to find. Erin is doing things contrary to her nature as she believes it will help Dante. Dante has done his best to explain certain things to Erin but he is holding back. A surprise awaits Dante to help guide him to his true p ...more

Dante proves that daily. Now that she knows the truth about him it has put her in danger. She is trying to process and needs time, however, now that she knows that is not really an option.

Omg. This is one of my favorite Paranormal romance for this year. I have read a few books from this talented author but she continues to blow my mind. This is the fifth part of the amazing Blood Bond series. You need to read these books in order or you will be completely lost. I was hooked on the first page and I could not stop. I devoured this incredible story in one sitting.

I've become obsessed with these Blood Bond Saga books!!! HIGHLY recommend!!

Not only am I obsessed with this Blood Bond Saga, but I've also fallen in love with Dante and Erin and their steamy relationship! Even without the blood bonding that they have with one another, I truly believe that they would have been drawn to each other. I'm anxious to find out if Dante and his father will be able to find what they're looking for in Vampyre Texts and if so, will what they find help them, destroy any hop

Part 5 has been the most intense so far. Dante and Erin have so many strange things happening around them. Strange behavior from family members, ghost sightings, voodoo priestess' with "the sight", the many disappearances from the hospital where Erin works. Erin has been researching the disappearing patients and has found that all are B positive. The voodoo high priestess is seeing evil around them and Erin has seen a ghost that just might be important to their future.

Unsolved mysteries have just gotten freaky

So what unsolved mysteries have developed have now gone freaky, spooky. Ghosts are real? Vampires are real? Demons and were-creatures are real too. A lot has transpired that both Erin and now Dante must face but their ultimate goal is clarifying the Vampyre Texts tome to shed some light on their blood bond. Homeless Voodoo Priestress Bea sheds some cryptic wisdom to our main characters. Other once mentioned questions are being answered but other question

“My vision sharpened. I’d felt protective of Erin before, but now that I’d taken her blood, red rage consumed me.”

This has been my favorite book of the series thus far. So much happens in Part 5. Some questions are answered and some are explained a little bit more. Erin is getting closer to excepting what Dante is but also dealing with new elements thrown her way. But she isn’t the only one having a hard time excepting reality, Dante is struggling as well.
