Some bonds go deeper than blood…they go to the very soul.

New Orleans detective Jane Hart is a vampire. She craves blood, has supernatural strength, and when the mood hits her just right, she can grow one killer pair of fangs. She never counted on being a vamp, but she also never counted on falling hard for werewolf alpha Aidan Locke. Now she’s mated to the wolf, and even though she’s living the undead life, Aidan refuses to leave her side.

But Jane is being watched, hunted…tested. And each deadly test that she faces puts Jane—and the people she loves—in the path of a determined killer. She has to find out who is setting her up, before it’s too late. Too late for Jane. Too late for Aidan.

He claimed her…and she obsessed him.

Because now her lover is the one who is changing. Jane’s blood has infected Aidan and the wolf that lives within him is fighting for survival. Each battle…each dark test that their enemy puts in their path…each move slides Aidan closer to the edge. A darkness is growing inside of him. A darkness that is slowly consuming the man he’s been…
And leaving only the monster behind.

When blood and darkness rule, even mates can be torn apart.

In the final book of the BLOOD AND MOONLIGHT trilogy, Jane and Aidan will find out who they can really trust…and who has been waiting to destroy them all along. Are you ready for the end?

It has been a season of series enders for this reader, Bitter Blood is no exception. This book marks the third and final installment in the Blood and Moonlight Trillogy. The series chronicles the adventures and romance of Detective Mary Jane (Just Jane) Hart and her alpha wolf lover Aidan Locke. Together the pair patrol the streets of New Orleans protecting its innocent citizens from threats both human and paranormal.

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series from start to finish. In the final series offering Jane and Aidan face threats from within and without. Their romance and their lives are threatened by the malicious machinations of an unknown foe. Together, with assistance of a supportive cast, the pair must solve the mystery before a most violent, bloodthirsty change completely overcomes Aidan.

This series is a tight, action-packed trilogy; a non-stop wild ride from start to finish. At one point Jane wonders, “There had to be a limit to the amount of absolute shit that a person could deal with during a twenty-four hour period.” But, when things go from bad to worse, Jane never stops fighting. I always admire a strong female lead. Jane is determined to do good in the world; loyal, strong, and smart. The romance in this installment is off the charts hot. The plot lends itself to some pretty wild and sexy times. Of course, I’m not one to shy away from such content, so this was totally up my alley.

If you haven’t tried this series yet, I highly recommend it. Eden’s plot and characters are well-written and her style is spot on. While I’m sad to see the end of Jane and Aidan is always good to bid farewell on a high note.
