About this ebook

Darcy Blackmore, head of the Blackmore vampire clan, is one bossy, arrogant, insufferable piece of work.

He’s also my only hope.

I have to stop my sister from marrying his brother. A loveless, arranged marriage would kill her, but she’s determined to go through with it to keep our family safe. Nightfall tradition demands a witch and vampire marriage—ASAP—or we’re out.

Darcy’s solution?

We pretend we’re a love match, trick our siblings into confessing they don’t want to tie the knot, and sort out how to save the town once the wedding bells are silenced—permanently.

It’s not a bad plan. In theory.

If only hate-banging Darcy weren’t my new favorite hobby. If only he’d kept his secretly kind heart under wraps and this fake love had stayed fake...

Bad Blood is a red hot, enemies-to-lovers Standalone romance. Formerly titled My Big Fat Bloodsucker Wedding. Same addictive read, new title and cover.

Keywords: Witch romance, vampire romance, paranormal rom com, laugh out loud vampire romance, steamy vampire romance, funny vampire romance, steamy witch romance, paranormal small town romance, romantic comedy.

I am a bit picky when it comes to supernatural romances, but Bella Jacob did not disappoint in My Big Fat Bloodsucker Wedding. It was filled with humor, romance, spice, mystery, and kingship. Blair and her sister have just moved into Nightfall. Blair and her twin sister Annie are the newbies in town, the witches that the town has been waiting for and needing for quite some time. Annie is the quiet, sweet, delicate, librarian type whereas Bella is the rough, tough, "I don't need a man" type. Annie has decided she will be the one to sacrifice herself and marry Colin, one of the elders in town to help keep Nightfall safe and renew the shield that has been protecting the town's identity. Blair is not happy and she has decided she will do everything and anything to stop this union from happening, even if it means she has to pair up with Darcy, Colin's brother. Blair doesn't trust the blood-sucking brothers and prefers to do things on her own, but when she realizes that Blair is also on the same mission to stop his brother from marrying Annie, the duo decides it will be quicker and easier to work together. Although Blair and Darcy can't stand each other, they can't deny the CRAZY CHEMISTRY between them. The more time they spend together the harder it is to resist it. It's funny when enemies turn out to be something a little more. What's even better.... when Darcy and Blair realize that the joke is on them.... This was my first read by author Bella Jacobs and definitely not my last.

Vampires, witches, and all sorts of zaniness...what do these have in common? They all figure prominently in MY BIG FAT BLOODSUCKER WEDDING by author Bella Jacobs. I love paranormal romance, and when there's a big helping of laughter, even better. Bella's done a bang-up job of making me fall in love with Nightfall, New Hampshire and the, er, folks that live there. Finding out that your mom was a witch, and that you and your sisters are also witches is a big deal, but also discovering that vampires are, indeed, a thing, and that you or one of your siblings is the key to saving the town that you've come to call home is kind of a lot. Topping things off is one heck of a surly, maddening, and also sexy vampire that may or may not be a part of the puzzle as well. Blaire, with her self-assured take no nonsense attitude, is the perfect foil for Darcy and his seemingly stuffy and high-handed ways. Every romance lover knows that these things are like kindling for the upcoming blaze, and Bella delivers with both heat and humor. The first in a series, MY BIG FAT BLOODSUCKER WEDDING is just the thing for readers that enjoy plenty of sass, surprises, and steam in their paranormal romances. It's an easy and fun read, and paves the way for more fun and such coming from Bella in MY BIG FAT BLOODSUCKER SECRET, hitting the shelves in the very near future. Thumbs up, fangs out, sparks flying fun to be had here, so dive in and enjoy. ❤️

From the first sentence, this book just hooks you in and takes you along for the ride. The journey to Darcy and Blaire’s HEA includes three dimensional characters, witty dialogue, and an engaging storyline. Blaire Wonderfully just found out she’s a witch from a long line of witches, then moved to the supernatural town of Nightfall to live in a falling down house that she inherited, all while still trying to take care of her five sisters. Darcy Blackmore is a 200 year old vampire and a town elder who is not interested in a relationship. When Blaire’s twin sister, Annie, and Darcy’s brother, Colin, agree to marry to renew the town’s wards, Darcy and Blaire decided to fake a relationship with each other so their ill-suited siblings will call off their wedding. Despite the animosity between them, their very real and sizzling chemistry make the lines between fake and real get very blurry. The story includes what you’d expect from this genre - mildly dangerous situations, paranormal creatures, loyal friends and family, tragic back stories, mystical coincidences, snark, and laughs. On their way to their HEA, there is a small bit of angst and there is growth for both characters. The book has a little bit of everything - sweet moments, sexy times, real life issues, imperfect characters, laugh out loud moments, and so much love. So expect to laugh, swoon, cry, cringe, and cheer. I am excited to read the next book in this series teased about in the epilogue.
