~ Fan review


Dr. Toni Parthen never knew she carried a unique, supernatural gene until the night she was kidnapped for it. Imprisoned in a secret underground community, she is asked to do the unthinkable: procreate with a vampire male in order to save their dying race. Headstrong and independent, Toni doesn’t cower in the face of her new, sinister reality. Instead she incites the other captured women to mutiny. But danger lurks around another corner. A ruthless demon faction is also after her powerful DNA, and she is suddenly thrust into the middle of a bloodline war. As her world explodes into violence, her only hope of survival lies with the dark, formidable vampire who wants nothing to do with her.


A rare half-vampire, half-demon, the leader of the Warrior Class, Jacken Brun, has vowed never to allow his tainted bloodlines into the community. Already a heavy burden, this oath becomes nearly impossible to bear when Toni’s special scent and infuriating troublemaking ignite a voracious hunger in him. Avoidance is key. But when war wages around Toni, led by the man who devastated her years ago, Jacken must choose between honoring his pledge or claiming a forbidden love.

“The writing is out of this world good. Ms. Tappan weaves an intricate storyline with multi-faceted characters that you can’t help but love…or hate…or hate, then love, lol.”

~ Fan review


Tortured by a power-hungry Fey father, Pandra Parthen lashes out one fateful night and inflicts an unspeakable cruelty on Vârcolac warrior Thomal Costache, unknowingly binding herself to the vamp for life. Now she is stuck forever with a man consumed by the need for revenge. Thomal remains entrenched in rage while over time Pandra grows to want a real marriage. But when she is unable to break through his forbidding walls, she seeks to release him from their bond…and the only way she can do that is through her own death.


One of the most dangerous of the Vârcolac warriors, Mixed-blood vampire Thomal Costache oozes sex appeal on the outside while concealing darkness within. His obsessive fury is only shaken by Pandra’s imminent death, when he realizes he’s been ruled by anger for reasons far deeper than her abuse. But now Pandra is trapped where no one has ever escaped, and Thomal will have to call on all his fighting skills to save her. Dying is a given, but he’ll risk everything to get what he wants above all else: a second chance.

 Books 4, 5, and 6 in the USA Today bestselling Vampire Awakenings Series.

Book 4, Enraptured.

With only one month left in college, Ian is busy enjoying what time he has left with his friends. Since reaching maturity, his life hasn’t been as carefree as it used to be, but he’s found a way to fight his growing destructive urges by losing himself in women. That is until Paige enters his life and falls half dead into his arms. Looking only to keep her safe, Ian flees with her. 

   Paige has spent the past four years of her life training to fight and kill vampires. Her desire for revenge is the only thing that’s kept her going. When she’s forced into hiding with Ian, she’s determined to believe he’s just another monster in need of beheading. However, the more time they spend together, the more she begins to question what she’s always believed about vampires. Unfortunately, if she lets him in, she’ll have to admit that what she’s fought so hard for may be nothing but a lie. 

   Ian is determined to make her see him for what he truly he is, and not what she believes him to be. He can only hope he’ll be able to do so before she returns to her old life, and the certain death awaiting her.


Book 5, Undone.

It has been six years since Abigail Byrne laid eyes on Brian Foley, but since then she’s been unable to keep him out of her thoughts and dreams. Determined to try to forget him, she moves on with her life until the day her twin sister disappears without a trace. Abby has no choice but to turn to Brian for help in locating her twin, even if it results in having her heart broken.   

     Brian’s life as a vampire has consisted of little more than killing and death for the last two hundred years. There’s no room inside of him anymore for kindness and love, or so he thinks, until he hears Abby’s frantic plea for his help. Unable to refuse her request, Brian agrees to help Abby find her missing sister.

   As the search for Vicky progresses, Brian does everything he can to deny his growing feelings for Abby. However, the further they delve into her sister’s disappearance, the more determined he becomes to protect her from the horrors they uncover.


Book 6, Fractured.

In this gripping Vampire Awakenings Series novella, David finally meets his match.


Freed from the chains and the vampires that once held her, Mia struggles every day to come to terms with her captivity and the aftermath of what she endured.

   Knowing that she can’t stand the touch of another, David will do whatever he can to help Mia while she tries to figure out who she is now, and how to handle the deepening bond between them. 

   However, just when Mia starts to think that she may be able to find happiness again with David, a danger she never knew existed rises up and threatens to take it all away from her once more.
