About this ebook

Romances don’t get more enemies-to-lovers than this!


A vampire warrior with a chip on his shoulder and an emotionally wounded female demon take you on a journey to love and redemption you won’t soon forget.


Broken by her father’s brutal punishment, Pandra Parthen sets off on a destructive rampage to quiet the screaming in her head. But an act of cruelty against a vampire goes terribly wrong, and she ends up bound to him…forever. Now she’s stuck in some jerkwater town among her bloodsucker enemies, and her only path to a bearable life will be to find the softer sides of herself. But if she dares to care, that could lead dangerously close to wanting


Scoffed at for being an artist, vampire warrior Thomal Costache is out to prove his tough side. But his efforts backfire when he tries to save his brother from Pandra’s evil appetites by sacrificing himself to the beautiful and powerful demon.


All his relationships fall apart.


Now the race is on to make everything right, especially with his estranged mate, or existence as he knows it will be the price. A maniacal demon is bent on destroying all Otherworldly beings, and Pandra is the sole person who can stop him…but only if Thomal can make her feel safe in his loving embrace.


“I haven't been this into a paranormal/paranormal romance series for a very long time. The writing is out of this world good. Ms. Tappan weaves an intricate storyline with multiple multifaceted characters that you can't help but love...or hate...or hate, then love, lol.”

This series just keeps getting better! The third book in this series, it is darker than the other two books, but I thought the darkness fit this installment. However, similar to the other two, Tracy expertly writes essentially two stories at the same time. For example, in this story, there are really two heroes (Thomal and Nyko) and two heroines (Pandra and Faith). The love scenes in this one are more plentiful and more sizzling than the past two books. Holy smokes!!! I love how the males in this town are genetically forced to “be the perfect guy,” otherwise they will be in physical pain: Dedicated, loyal, faithful, protective. The masochist in me enjoyed reading about Thomal and Nyko’s respective struggles, finding it almost endearing that they need their mates THAT badly. It’s a very unique trait to give them, and I love reading about it! Across this series, Tracy is like the conductor of a 127-piece orchestra; she introduces a new instrument (or character), gives them an awesome solo, then fades them into the background, all the while making sure their sounds can still be heard. In other words, she has the main characters from past books as minor characters in this one. Not only was I thrilled to read their continuing stories, but I feel it kept the story interesting, injecting it with fresh perspectives every now and then. I was ECSTATIC when I found out another book is being written in this series. I LOVE IT!!! To that point, Tracy took the story in a unique direction from not just “vampire-paranormal,” but also merging with the “other-worldly-fantastical.” I can’t wait!!! ***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review***

Another great novel by this author! Each character has their own emotional baggage and quirks, which leaves you cheering them on one minute then feeling bad for them the next. Never a dull moment in the Community. I recommend this book.

STEAMY!! I have read all of the Blood-Bonded books multiple times.The stories hit all the right spots: relationships, adventure, sex, family, career, and yes, even community. Dialogue is bevievable. I can actually hear the characters saying the words that are written. Each book ends its own story line but the same characters appear in all future books as well as newly introduced or newly flushed-out charecters. I liked the books well enough to buy the additional volumes/novellas. Hoping for some more books, maybe a story basd in Transylvania? Or from the perspective of the Dragon Males?(Hint, Hint) I really like the idea of an underground community that has it all going for it. It's a place I would like to visit. Yummy!
