Hunting vampires is her legacy.

Detective Rainey Astor walks a dangerous line between the human and supernatural worlds. As a vampire hunter, she’s a formidable opponent, having killed hundreds of their kind. Yet, when her latest foray into the supernatural world goes terribly wrong, she finds herself rescued by the very creature she’s vowed to kill.

Elijah Hawthorne is unlike any vampire Rainey has ever met. His sexy as hell exterior hides a tortured soul seeking redemption. Rainey knows she should avoid him at all costs, but fate has other plans. Together, they’re forced down a twisted path of ancient revenge and tainted love.

With Elijah guarding her back, Rainey must protect her heart, because giving in could mean a death sentence for them both. But if they don’t discover the hidden identity of their enemy before the clock runs out, she’s as good as dead anyway.

Fans of J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood, Lynsay Sands Argeneau Novels, Linsey Hall’s Shadow Guild, L.J. Smith’s The Vampire Diaries, or the TV show The Originals, will devour this brand new trilogy.

Grab your copy of Blood Hunt and start this addicting Vampire Paranormal Romance today! But be warned, this romance comes with a bite.

Blood Hunt is the first installment of the new PNR Huntress Chronicles saga and while I enjoyed most of it, there is still a lot of room to grow within this new world.

Firstly, this is a mixed bag review of feelings and thoughts. After I finished the whole story, which at times took work, there was a lot of reflection that happened. Which is always awesome on a lot of different levels. The writer had some key components that held together the pages at times, blood and guts being the main paring. I love hard-core action and can handle any of those nice twists and turns. Bloodthirsty much, yes.

The romance between our leading couple was hot at times and then almost immature at others. I couldn't tell where this really wanted to land, as it was kind of all over the board. There are some major Buff and Angel vibes going on, not a bad thing but it was a thing I felt happening. (Buffy Summers for life!)

Overall, the world created needed more depth. The story has a lot to like but needs more colorful bits to make it all work out. I recommend this story but advise checking what other people are saying as well.

Getting 3 Sheep


Excerpt #1
Then, she reaches into her pocket and withdraws an iron key the size of her palm.

“What are we waiting for?”

“The driver needs to be out of sight,” Rainey tells me with a forced smile as she waves. Once his car is out of sight, she turns and unlocks the gate.

“Why did we have to wait?”

She sets her bag down. “Because.” Gripping the key in both hands, she pulls it apart, revealing a hidden blade. Then, she runs it over her palm.

Copper tang fills the air, the scent of it a powerful roar in my head, an invasion of every single fucking sense within me, and I jump back, putting space between us before I fucking lose my mind. “What the fuck are you doing?” With no adrenaline, no immediate threat, there’s nothing to distract me from the allure of the crimson in her veins.

“You can’t get in without my blood,” she says, stepping toward me. “My grandmother had the property warded against supernaturals. The only way around that is to give you my blessing.” She reaches me.

My body shakes, desire for her, for her blood, nearly overwhelming me. Then, she stretches up and runs her injured palm over my cheek.

If I thought the scent of her blood was overwhelming, it’s nothing to the blood-hammering, stomach-twisting, cock-hardening, potent assault racing through my body as she spreads it over my skin.

“You okay?” she asks. I barely hear her over the sound of my blood pounding in my ears as I fight to gain control over myself like I had to do the night she nearly died.

But this is nothing like that.

My hunger is strong—stronger than anything I’ve ever felt, and before I realize it, I’m reaching for her. Hand cupping the back of her neck, I yank her toward me and slam my mouth onto hers.

She bucks, fighting against my hold for just a moment before she sighs and grips my arms with both hands. Rainey opens beneath me, her tongue slipping into my mouth, giving me a full fucking taste of the woman beyond the hunter.



I fucking devour her mouth, spinning her and pinning her to the gate with my body pressed against her. My cock is beyond hard, my body ready to claim the woman as my mate even if my brain tells me what a horrible fucking idea that would be. None of that matters now. I want to claim her, possess her, just as she owns me.

My hands roam down her body, gripping her ass and lifting her as she wraps her legs around my waist. Her hands are in my hair, tugging as she gives me back every demanding moment of this kiss.

She nips my lip, and I growl in response, the caged beast within straining against the chains I’ve used for so long.

The gate creaks, and I pull away, releasing her mouth as I slide her down my body. Our breaths are little more than ragged gasps, each perfectly in tune with the other, and I stare down at her, unable to tear my gaze from her swollen lips.

Lips I’d just tasted. And already, I want more.
