I like the world building, the vampire hierarchy and the author pulls me right back into my vampire obsession. Now, let’s get to the sex. Yes, S.E.X. Oh my God, hot, sweaty, need to go find my husband right this minute, kind of sex.

GUARDING BLOODLINES is the second book in The Princeton Allegiant series. We reunite with the characters we met in book one, and finally, learn more about the elusive Julianna. After 300 years of running from Loren, she is here to stay, no matter what that may bring.

I enjoyed this one much more than book one, although I enjoyed that one too. I think Ms Garland's writing has improved tremendously, and there is such an eye to detail, it improves the whole story. The world-building is excellent and

A slow burn paranormal romance with vampires, witches (?), adventure, danger, revenge, murder, loyalties and such a build-up of steam!
The book is unputdownable, will take you on a rollercoaster ride of adventure and will have you on the edge of your seat with the suspense of knowing who the good guys and the bad guys are.
Although this is book 2, I hadn't read book 1 and still enjoyed and understood almost everything

YAY!!! Loren and Julianna got their own story!! More sexy vamps but that Julianna is a real witch. No seriously! LOL. Their storyline was just as heart-pounding and intriguing as Alex and Elizabeth's. I could not put the book down, it was that good. I am amazed at the ability Ms. Garland has to really make us care about these characters. We root for them, we cry with them and we laugh right along with them. Such an entertaining, captivating and sexy read for sure. I just want more!

Vampire romance, intrigue, conflict, and war. Who will win? For three hundred years, ever since Loren turned her, Julianna has been on the run. She feared Lore. But she wasn’t fully turned into a vampire and is half human and part vampire, with all of Loren’s powerful abilities. Abilities that make them both feared by the other vampires. But Julianna can be killed, and that is what they want to do to her. Loren wants her to stop running and finally give in to their attraction, and he wants to ke ...more

Loren Tagliaris has been avoiding any Allegiant for centuries because, he has an amazing amount of powers that other vampires don't. That makes even the most powerful of vampires fear him. He's fine with that. He's not fine with the fact that Julianna, the witch he turned hundreds of years ago, has been avoiding and hiding from him since he made her. Julianna has not turned vampire but, has all of Loren's other powers, which makes her someone the vampire Allegiant wants to destroy. Loren will do ...more

Loren has been trying to capture Julianna for three hundred years, and it's time for her to face the music and stop her running from him. Julianna was not a fully turned vampire, she still has some characteristics of a human like warm blood, eating food and sleeping. It has made it easier for her to blend in with humans, but it has made it hard because the vampire allegiants (who control the vampires) don't want to treat her like a normal vampire, seeing they claim she isn't one. Will it end up ...more

This is the perfect book for anyone who loves vampire romances! Loren is a powerful vampire whose life is complicated by the reappearance of his former progeny Juliana. For 300 years, Juliana has been in hiding after Loren tried to turn her to save her life. A turning that didn't take completely and left her in limbo as a half vampire, half witchling. A very romantic vampire thriller. I enjoyed reading this!

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.

The author has brought us so many characters that we can care for. Loren is a vampire and we don't really know what Julianna is. Loren tried to turn her but something prevented it from taking. After hiding from Loren for three hundred years, Julianna is back and needs his help. Heart pounding action throughout the story keeps you from putting the book down.

Loved the book it was great, the story was well written and the characters are interesting. Loren is a vampire that everyone is scared of. Julianne was a witch and Loren rescued her, he even tried to change her she ended up half vampire and the other half human. Loren needs to stay close so nothing happens, he needs to protect her.
Thank you for allowing me to review your book.

This is a new author for me and I accidentally read this book first, but I will be going back to rectify that. This book was great as a stand-alone, but I feel like I missed a lot of character detail by reading them out of order. The author excelled at creating a captivating world full of danger and angst and then she gave us these characters that were easy to become invested in. I can’t wait to read the rest of the books in the series.

The world-building for this book was very well done, and the character of Loren in particular was very well developed; however, Julianna remained very much an enigma and could have used greater focus and elaboration. While mention is made of her history, there was very little background or exposition for her character; I found myself constantly yearning for more details about her life on the run and the events that shaped her into the person she is. As firmly fixed in the present as the whole bo ...more

This was the second book in this series so I felt a bit lost when I first started. I think you had to have read the first book to really enjoy this one.
