MATCHING BLOODLINES is the third book in The Princeton Allegiant series, and trust me when I say this series just keeps on getting better and better! Although I would say you "could" read this as a standalone, the better question would be "why?"

At the end of the last book, Francisco (and us) found out that Sophia was alive and also got a location. The start of this book takes us to that location. Poor Francisco. That's all I'm saying. And what the hell is Loren thinking? He's got his mate so he

Holy hell! Deborah nails this bad boy with 100% on point realism that hooks you from the start and reels you in for the duration. One refreshing spin with an exhilarating storyline and gripping plot propels this bad boy to life flawlessly. Well rounded scenario's, ramping up the excitement and adrenaline with such intensity and precision, blowing this jewel wide open. Revving 'em up, laying 'em out and watching 'em roll, breaking it down, blazing this baby into a tailspi

With Loren become a Lord of New York, it is agreed that vampires can turn humans for the purposes of creating mates, and mates are what are required to stabilize the Allegiants.

Will love win out
This book fits seamlessly with its predecessors. The characters we love continue to be a force in the book and we meet even more characters, each one adding more flavor and detail to the story. This author is able to reach an emotional depth that just drags you into a story and keeps you invested in the outcome. I hope there will be more books to come.

I really loved the journey once he meets Charlotte. They have such great attraction between them and I love how Francisco opens up. He grows throughout the book and really makes this sad history seem a little bit more hopeful.

I have to say I absolutely love this entire series so this may be a little biased but hell when you enjoy something so much you are allowed. This is the third book in the series and do yourself a favour and read the other two Each is a stand alone there are character cross overs but well worth the effort.

But she's blown away when they reveal they are vampires. There is a spark of chemistry between Francisco and Charlotte getting the start. Weird things ke ...more

The great parts of this steamy book were truly fantastic, but it also suffered from several 3-star issues like too much manufactured drama, a very 2-D Leigh, the fact that crop dusting wasn’t even invented until the 1920’s, some completely atypical drama queen outbursts by Charlotte, the unresolved Fred issue, inconsistent details, and the fact that although this book is supposed to be a standalone, it felt like there were a few giant holes missing in the background stories. It also ends in a cl ...more

Francisco can possess me anytime!! Mmm, mmm, mmm. Love me some Francisco. Another awesome book with a fun and unique storyline that I just couldn't put down. I love the way Deborah writes these Vamp books! Watching Charlotte and Francisco's relationship evolve was a delight to be a party to and the world-building is outstanding. I truly feel like a part of these stories as I read them. I know how sad I'm going to be when the series comes to a close. :(

This was a vampire romance that captured my imagination from the start. With an excellent original story line and well drawn characters I was soon engrossed in the story. Francisco is the Commander of the Princeton Allegiant, his leader has instructed him to find himself a mate and mates for the unmarried vampires under his control. He was unhappy with this order but when he meets with Charlotte, the owner of a matchmaking service he soon changes h

Francisco found his mate but lost her to another, this made him bitter and angry and vowed to never take another. Now years later all of the commanders and many of their security have been told to find mates and Charlotte’s firm has been hired to help.

It was amazingly written, I couldn't put the book down. I loved the story of Commander Francisco and his soon to be First Lady Charlotte. I also loved reading about the Princeton Allegiant and Lord Loren. I enjoyed be able to read about the Commander having a couple female guards that would do anything to protect their Commander and their First Lady.

A lot to think about. It can be so hard when you are having trouble thinking. The emotional trauma of her twin dying or so close to it. Having someone who can turn Leigh so close and not be able to get it done. Would be a shock and add to the turmoil. This story has been so good. All the things going on I am surprised Charlotte has not had a nervous break down. I received a complimentary review copy of the book and I am voluntarily leaving a honest review.

Great addition to the Paranormal Romance genre!

The writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world that was created.

The descriptions of the characters and their feelings are so involved, you can truly picture it in your mind. Their attitudes toward the events that are happening makes the story even richer.

Francisco alway thought that he would have one mate for life, but his mate has broken his heart and chosen another man. He is a vampire Commander, and they just expect him to move on, but he is finding it hard. Luckily Loren has a plan, and he is going to get the matchmaker Charlotte to find him his mate, the only problem is Francisco would rather have Charlotte. Charlotte has had plenty of experience finding matches for people, but she has never match vampires with humans.

This is an excellent paranormal series for anyone who loves hot alpha vampires! After having lost his mate to another, Francisco, the Princeton Allegiant Commander, is about to have his vows of only having another mate in name only, fly out of the window when he meets the indomitable Charlotte. A very good story of finding love...again. I enjoyed reading this!

Shelves: romance, bbb
This was an OK book, but too predictable. The characters, especially Charlotte's sister, are one-dimensional. The plot was interesting and I would actually read more in this series if nothing better was around, but I want more than lust and sex in my romance. And, unfortunately, the world-building needed to be done earlier in the book for those readers who have not read the earlier books in the series. It took awhile to catch up. ...more

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Francisco is trying to find his soulmate back but it is not that easy. Francisco was a five hundred year old Vampire that worked for his Lord Loren. Time to get the book and others from this author. I will be getting more from this author. Thank You for writing the books so we can read them.

Francisco’s mate was taken and when he finds her she’s in love with another vampire. He’s made to go to a matchmaker. The matchmaker Charlotte is the one that Francisco decides that he wants. This story was full of intrigue, romance and danger.
