“I see a man. He is old. Very old. He will come into your life in a moment of danger. He will watch over you and protect you.” The gypsy’s hand gripped Tessa’s tighter. “He will bring you death,” she whispered, her voice like the rustle of dry leaves. “And life.”

Ten years later, when Andrei Dinescu saves Tessa from a vicious attacker, she has no idea that the handsome stranger the gypsy fortune teller predicted is not a hunter but a seven-hundred-year-old vampire. Darkly powerful, unbelievably compelling, he is obviously pursuing Tessa, but is it her love he’s after or her blood?

When it comes to writing vampire romance, Amanda Ashley is one of the best. But with her latest vampire romance “Fire in the Blood” it was just okay. The plotline was kind of interesting when I read the description. But Fire in the Blood couldn’t get past the description. It hurt me to say that this book wasn’t one of Amanda Ashley best. The story was slow and the chemistry between the two characters felt rushed.

I did like the twist on the blood. And the secondary characters of Bailey and Tristan. But other than that, Fire in the Blood was an okay read just not a great read.


Twilight Dreams (Twilight Book #2)

Holly Parrish has never met anyone like Micah Ravenwood: his dark eyes, his movie-star smile, the indefinable way he looks at her. Even when she thought he was no more than another client for her investment firm, her lust overpowered her logic.

But she never expected this attraction to whisk her from her busy southern California life to a silent and eerie ghost town in Wyoming. Only vampires call the deserted place home—and one of them is Micah. He says he’s brought her to Morgan Creek for her safety, that vicious creatures are hunting her. But how can Holly trust him? One look and she can see the need barely restrained behind Micah’s polite words. The heat of his kiss, the pleasure of his touch—none of it can tell her whether he wants her as his lover—or his prey . . .


 I love all of Amanda Ashley previous vampire stories, so of course I jumped at the chance to read Twilight Dreams. But with a sad heart I have to say that this was a big letdown for me.

In Twilight Dreams Micah Ravenwood was getting over a broken heart after losing the women he loved. He told himself he would never love another human ever again. Until one day, Holly Parrish entered his life.

Holly come to the night club to meet a prospective employee. Mistaking Micah as that client they hit it off, until Micah hand to finally let her know that he wasn’t the gentleman that she was sent to me. However, that didn’t turn her off from liking Micah and wanting to see him again. Until old enemy of Rylan made an appearance and now that enemy has their sights on Holly.

Twilight Dreams was a well-developed story, with a lot of intrigue to boot. But the romance fizzled out as soon as Micah and Holly become a couple. What saved the story for me though was Micah.

I connected with Micah from the start and you couldn’t help but fall in love with him. Micah, Rylan and Kadie saved this story from being a totally snooze fest.

But Amanda Ashley will always be one of the authors I go to for my vampire fix.

Night’s Surrender (Children of the Night Book 7) Book Review

In Amanda Ashley latest edition to her bestselling paranormal romance Series “The Children of the Night” we are introduce to Rane and Savanah’s daughter Abby Marie Cordova. Abby was an aspiring actress who knows more than most people do about vampires since everyone in her family are one, being the only human out of all those vampires she felt left out. However, a chance encounter with dark, mysterious Niccola Desanto takes Abby on an ultimate discovery.

There are sayings “Be careful of what you wish for” and “Life is greener on the other side.” Well Niccola Desanto will find out that these sayings are not always true especially spending over a hundred years as an immortal. Rumor has it that Mara the world oldest vampire who also was his maker has regained her humanity and now Nick is on the excursion to find Mara and the cure. Along the way he meets up with Abby, not knowing he is one step closer to becoming mortal once more.

Night’s Surrender is one enjoyable book.  It was a real pleasure visiting with old friends. This book will leave you in stitches.

My favorite line “There’s a man for every women” “Or a weirdo for every dingbat.“
