In the midst of supernatural chaos, worlds and hearts collide.
Celia: Having never known my parents, I’ve always felt like an orphan. All I want is a normal life. But after I’m attacked in my bedroom by one vampire—and rescued by another—it’s about time to give up on “normal” once and for all. Idris, the second in command of the Gregorie vampire clan, has come to my aid, but his motives for saving me are unclear. And what surprises me most is my attraction to his heated gaze. . . .
Idris: Terror. Curiosity. Arousal. These are the natural impulses of a human female, not the spawn of the ruthless Valarian king. Is it possible that Celia is unaware of her bloodline—and the power coursing through her veins? As the daughter of my archenemy, she was supposed to be my ransom. But how quickly the heat of desire changes everything. Now the family Celia has always craved is trying to kill her, and it’s up to me to save her again—when all I really want to do is make her mine.

BLOOD GUARD | BLOOD VEIL–
This is the second installment in this, series and since I really enjoyed reading the first book “Blood Guard” , I was very curious about this one. 😉 This second book is about Idris, Athan’s (Blood Guard) brother. He has been sent to keep his eye on princess Celia, the daughter of their enemy. Idris wants to use Celia as a pawn to get to her father. After everything that has happened in the first book…Idris is ready for some revenge.
Things don’t really go as planned (when do they ever?). Celia doesn’t know anything about “his world”. She was fostered and raised as a regular human child…and when she gets attacked, he ends up saving her…and taking her with him.
But what happens when he starts to develop feelings for this pawn…
This book is pretty heavy on the insta-love/insta-lust. Normally with PNR, it doesn’t really bother me, but for some reason, I was a bit annoyed with how easily Celia gives in. I just wanted her to fight it a bit more. I mean she is kidnapped by a vampire…so you would think that fear would override everything else?! This is personal though…I am just a fan of feisty, strong kickass heroines. 😉
Other than that, I really did enjoy reading this one. What can I say…I love me some badass vamps!!!
I do have to say that I enjoyed the first book a bit more. Maybe that’s because I just liked Kendra (book 1) more. Anyways…
I am very curious to see what will happen next! 😉
