Moon Dance by Amy Blankenship & R.K. Melton is the first novel in the Blood Bound Series and I liked it. Although I have to say that I found it very confusing sometimes that this story is written from so many point of views. Normally you’ll see only the hero and heroine’s point of view, but in this book the entire family and of course Kane are having their turns too.

But that doesn’t mean I didn’t like the book, the story has everything that I like to read, passion, jealousy, danger, love and determination. The family bond between the siblings from both families is strong and so recognizable.

In this novel the real hero and heroine are Devon, one of Malachi’s sons and Envy, a human bartender. Envy walks into the jaguar’s nightclub with one thing on her mind, revenge. She just discovered that her boyfriend is there with two other girls, so she dumps him and have fun in the club too. She is immediately drawn to gorgeous Devon, whose part owner of the club.

The chemistry between them is tremendous and Devon finds himself thinking of her as his mate and after one hell of a night together, that is exactly what he has done, claimed his mate. Now he has to explain everything to her and hopefully she will accept him the way he is.

Beside the confusion of all the different point of views, there was another small thing that I had a hard time to believe. This whole book, beside the first chapter about the two fathers, take place in only 48 hours. To me that is way too fast to trust and accept this mating-shifter thing, but for some reason it fit into the series.

I know I have to get and read the following novels too, because I really want to know what will happen next with the other siblings and of course Kane; although he starts as a bad guy, there is hope for him, because he true mate is out there.

Envy’s life was great. Great brother, great boyfriend, and the best job a girl could ask for… tending bar at the most popular clubs in the city. At least it was great until she got a call from one of her best friends about her boyfriend doing the vertical limbo on the dance floor at Moon Dance. Her decision to confront him begins a chain of events that will introduce her to a dangerous paranormal world hidden beneath the everyday humdrum. A world where people can transform into jaguars, real life vampires roam the streets, and fallen angels walk among us.

Yesterday’s Daughter by Sallie Lundy-Frommer is a fabulous paranormal romance novel; I have to say that this book was a real surprise. She created a world where I as reader would love to be a part of.

Grace Stone is a young woman who was found as a small girl with no memories of her family, so she grew up in foster homes. She discovered at an early age that she was different from other girl’s her age, so at age seventeen she got out on her own and made her own living and put herself to college. She thinks she is a vampire, because she is sensitive to sunlight and she has a craving for blood. Her life is about to change when she meets Malachi.

Malachi is one of the guardians of the vampire population and has been searching for Grace, his long lost life mate. Everyone thought she was killed as a child, but Malachi never believed that and spend his life searching. Now he finally found her and the only thing for him to do is tell her about her past and her true destiny among their people. But first they have to fight against the Harvesters, who set their eyes on Grace.

This novel is well written and had many things that I loved to find in a good read. This story was filled with betrayal, secrets, lost love and great companionship. Ms. Lundy-Frommer is a new author for me, but I’m definitely going to put her on my list for the future. The way she builds this world and created these fabulous characters is amazing.

Yesterday’s Daughter is an emotionally laden paranormal vampire romance novel woven with layers of betrayal, love and loss. Grace Stone, who later learns her true identity is Sapphira, is a loner who survives abuse in the foster care system after being abandoned as a child.

A brilliant student, she escapes from her brutal foster parents as a teenager and creates a life for herself. But, her life is little more than existence; plagued with questions about what she really is, a family that she has never known and the never-ending need to keep her differences hidden. She is alone and lonely, believing it will always remain so until Malachi appears in her life.

 Malachi, a Guardian of the vampire communities, has searched for his life mate, Sapphira, for decades. He refuses to cease searching for Sapphira even though she is believed dead by all. Conflict arises over the decades between Malachi and his family because of his refusals to accept another mate. But his very soul drives him on to continue his search, knowing that he could not exist if Sapphira were not in the world, somewhere.

Blood Prophecy is a tale about A Young woman named Amber. She is a genius who graduates college with double degrees early and finds herself drawn to Seattle where she meets fellow museum employee Chloe. Both of them unaware that they are part of a prophesy old as time. Michael is a Vampire looking for his queen, a queen fated to be his soul mate. He will stop at nothing to find her.

I found it a bit tough to follow this at times as the story tends to jump from different time periods quite a bit, and different perspectives. And Michael isn’t a particularly likable character through most of this book. He doesn’t come off as a very nice guy, and does some pretty deplorable things. But he does redeem himself in the end.
