About this ebook

Winner of the Independent Book Awards Bronze Medal, THE BLOODLINE WAR is the first sensational novel in the “wildly successful” (Readers’ Favorite) Community Series…


With over a thousand 4- and 5-star reviews on Goodreads!


“Jacken can hold his own against the best of the Black Dagger Brotherhood!”

~ Brenda, Goodreads reviewer


The night just keeps getting more bizarre…


The murder is oddly bloodless. Called in to consult on the crime scene, Dr. Toni Parthen has no time to puzzle out that peculiarity. A black-clad man who seems more brutal creature than human being stalks out of the night and kidnaps her.


Imprisoned in a mysterious underground town, Toni is thrust into a realm beyond her understanding. These strange townspeople want her to do the unthinkable - breed with one of the men. No, thank you.


She incites a mutiny among the other abductees. But it’s no easy task to outwit the tight-lipped head of security, especially since Big, Dark, and Murderous is as emotionally scarred as she is…and she’s falling for the pain in the butt.


The leader of an elite squad of vampire warriors, Jacken Brun has an unholy side that boils just below the surface. He’s barely able to keep his sacred vow and push away the smart, sexy doctor he’s so inexplicably drawn to. Something about her is eerily different…


When it turns out her bloodlines hold the key to unimaginable power, two factions of malicious demons go to war over her, and Jacken will have to dig deep into his heart to find more than his skills as a warrior to save her…

I LOVED THIS BOOK! (And boy, can Tracy write a hero!) The story was so full of twists even from the very first chapter. I thought I knew the direction it was going, (because I have read my fair share of vampire novels), but I was completely wrong. That's what was so refreshing about this book. Also, the mythology surrounding the vampires is unlike any that I have read before, which was also refreshing. I also like how not just the main characters were featured in the story. I learned about the lives of other minor characters who, hopefully, will get their own books in the series! Each male was SO alpha, and yet so devoted to his woman, family and duty. I also want to know what happens not only with the war itself, but with the singles who are still single at the end of the book! Jacken is one of my all-time favorite heroes. He is so dark and tortured, and yet it's clear that he has so much good in him that just needs a way to come to the surface. I would absolutely keep reading this series. Tracy is a very talented writer; not only is the book well-written in a technical sense, but she had me almost chomping at the bit to see what happened next! I found myself limiting the number of pages I read to make the book last longer, but before I knew it, I was done! I am eagerly awaiting the next installment, and I am now a HUGE Tracy-fan!!! ***A copy of this book was provided in exchange for an honest review***

loved this story. I found it on a facebook ad and I am so glad to read it. FromToni's introducton to the Blood line to falling for the one guy she's not supposed to fall for. I am hooked and would recomend it to anyone who enjoys a great read. Tracy is awesome!

I started and finished this book today. I absolutely loved it! To me, it's slightly reminiscent of J.R. Ward's Black Dagger Brotherhood. The women are strong, the men are hot and the action is exciting. I will definitely be looking out for the next book in this series
