Carly, the owner of a computer business, buys this farmhouse to get away from the stresses of living in the city. Little does she know that she got more than she bargained for when she discovers that there is a vampire living below her house.

Dmitri is an ancient vampire loving his home many stories below a quiet farmhouse. His arrangement with the mortal that lives above ends dramatically with his

So... this story wasn't as sweet as the rest and I felt very disconnected from it. I didn't really feel any romance. I got a more pervy vibe from the hero. I think having the ability to enter someone's dreams is something he should have used responsibly. Had I been confronted after with the fact that you manipulated my dreams into sex scenes and then were gloating about it, I would be furious and disgusted.

Furthermore I found the fact eluded to that he had fucked other women and then erased thei

Phantom Desires

Carly is a successful Computer expert she has built herself a great business and a healthy nest egg. Looking for a much needed break Carly buys a property in the middle of Wyoming and move away from the hustle and bustle of California for a while.

Dmitri has lives safely beneath the ground for several centuries but with the death of the properties owner and no living heirs for Dmitri to bargain with the property is sold.

When Carly starts to see a strange man in her dreams she is ex
I did it to myself again. I suffered through.
This one wasn't AS bad as the first two, especially not the first one. I don't remember finding myself cringing at the soap-opera dialogue, though it was still bad. (I've moved onto another book already where the dialogue is even worse, hence me not remembering.)

The ending was very abrupt though. Honestly it felt like it cut off.

I didn't hate the female character.

I didn't hate Dmitri.

Odd flowery language

I've read other books by Bianca but this series was very weird. Maybe weird is not a good word. The story was okay, the women where are right, but the dialogue was very reminecent purple prose. It was almost like a textbook vampire, crying blood, living in the shadows, and old-time language it was just off. Overall this is a forgettable story. And I think the series is pretty much forgettable too. So, I give an A for effort and another a for the fact that she wrote a book and

This is the third story of Brotherhood of Blood, about Carly and Dmitri. It is quite short than the other two, no other conflict than how will Dmitri engages Carly to keep the existence of the vampires secret, and the little-describe accident that is the turning point about their lives. This has a lot more potential to be a novel, unlike the others. Its is quite short, too short for me in fact, that I'm not fully enjoyed it. Anyhow it is still entertaining.

Book 3 Carly is a computer programmer tired of city life. She buys an old farmhouse unknowingly above Master Demitri's lair. After dreamwalking Demitri is determined to get to know her for his self preservation and of course his attraction. The chemistry like the first two books is strong so there is no need to be coy and their story has its individual ups and downs. The series has me hooked and onto the next!
Carly finds a whole new life waiting for her when she moves to Wyoming. Her nights are filled with erotic dreams of Dmitri. A new alliance is needed with the new owner of the property his lair is located under. The more he gets to know her the stronger his need for her grows.

This is a very erotic but simplistic story, not quite as good as the last. Next...

I read the first release and wrote a whole review on what was missing from it, then realized that there was an extended release, so I read that one and was pleased to note that all of the issues I had with the original had been addressed. This makes me happy.
