I'm not finding anything romantic about this book. I don't feel any sparks between Amanda and Jesse. Oh sure they both have a love of ancient mythology but so what, where's the love? And Jesse turning her without telling her, oh not so romantic at all. Definitely a deal breaker in my book.

Jesse frowned at her. “Amanda, I had to. I had to do it.”
“But why?”
Fixing his gaze on the road, he only replied, “You’re safe now. Don’t worry,

Adrianne Brennan's book, Blood of the Dark Moon is an intriguing vampire story that keeps the reader on their toes. The hero and heroine have their own uniqueness that make them perfect for each other.

I totally enjoyed the book and will look for others written by this author.

What's not to like? Magic, sex and vampires.

I usually shy away from the erotica genre, but this book was virtually impossible to put down. Adrianne's writing flows naturally, drawing you in and grabbing you before you realize it. The book also does its genre a much-needed service by providing a real plot and storyline carried out by deep, interesting, three-dimensional characters. Well worth the time and price.

I'm not usually a vampire fan. I was pulled into this book in spite of myself by the rich tapesty of Adrianne's writing and the exquisite depth of her characters - they made me love them, and I couldn't put it down. The stuff of legends.

In Adrianne Brennan’s Blood of the Dark Moon, we meet Amanda. She’s a graduate student at NYU working on her Thesis in Greek and Roman classics. Secretly, she’s a devoted follower of the Greek sun God, Apollo. Also practicing her own magick spells, she has no time for a social or romantic life, until she meets Jesse.

Jesse, a handsome young scholar stimulates her mind because he shares Amanda’s interest in both the occult and the classics. His sexy, “business-goth” appearance ignites her passion.

Blood of the Dark Moon weaves erotic romance, the supernatural and the occult into a gripping story that will have you turning the pages into the early hours of the morning. Jesse and Amanda's whirlwind romance is compelling, and is complemented by truly surprising plot twists that create conflict and add depth to the interactions between characters. The time Adrianne spent researching the referenced mythology and occult elements comes through in her writing and really helped to immerse me in th ...more

A very unique premise about topics rarely touched on in dark fantasy/paranormal romance! Unfortunately, it moves too slowly and spoon feeds bits and pieces of the mystery in too small chunks, and the world building teases as interesting, but it ultimately too thin. With a little more work, this could be a really great story -- as I said at the top, the premise is truly unique and interesting!

Adrianne Brennan stumbled into her love of writing by accident at the tender age of ten when she was given a creative writing assignment for her science class. The end result was her writing a brief science fiction comedy featuring numerous puns regarding vegetables. Once the writing bug bit, it bit pretty hard, and from the age of fourteen onwards she worked on a lengthy fantasy novel.
