There are three people in this affair – and two of them aren’t human…

A hidden paranormal London lies beneath our own. Escape into the supernatural world of the Blood Lifers – where vampires are both predator and prey.

1960s London. Light is a rebel Rocker Blood Lifer with a photographic memory. And a Triton motorbike. Since Victorian times he’s hidden in the shadows. Both predator and prey. His venom is deadly. He feeds on blood. Human, of course. But when he discovers his ruthless family’s horrifying secret experiments, he questions whether he should be slaying or saving the humans he’s always feared.

Ruby is a sexy but savage Elizabethan Blood Lifer. She burns with a destructive love for Light. But he’s keeping something from her. Something that breaks every rule in Blood Life. When she discovers the truth, things take a terrifying turn. 

Kathy is a seductive singer. But she’s also human. Light knows his passionate love for her is reckless but he’s enchanted. Yet such a romance is forbidden. When the two worlds collide, it could mean the end. For both species. 

What dark revelations will Light reveal at the heart of the experiments? Will he be able to stop them in time? The consequences of failure are unimaginable. Unless Light plays the part of hero, he risks losing everything. Including the two women he loves. 
A rebel, a red-haired devil and a Moon Girl battle to save the world – or tear it apart.
Blood Dragons is the first installment in a new paranormal romance/fantasy tale. Filled to the brim with amazing and colorful vampires, I was sinking my fangs in deep with this one! Each chapter seemed to just get better and better, as the tale takes you on a journey that's both enticing and dangerous all at the same time.

There's two gals that our main man loves in this story and watching that dynamic unfold was very interesting. I'm not usually a fan of that type of thing but it does work somehow, the author does a great job of making them mesh. There's areas of the story as a whole that could have used a bit more work but those types of things are just nit picking at a solid first edition.

With a harder edge, this one is for those that prefer whisky shots over wine coolers, you get a bigger bang for your buck but a darker undertone comes with it. I like leather and bikes, so for me it was great, but I can see how this one may not be light enough for all. And that's okay! But if you want to try something a little different....then stretch yourself a bit and take a trip on the wild side!
