He desperately needs his blood rose…
Ethan, mastyr vampire of the Bergisson Realm, never thought to find his blood rose, the one woman who could ease the blood-starvation he’s endured for decades. But Samantha carries a surprising level of power as her newly discovered fae heritage emerges and she connects with his personal realm frequency, a vibration that ignites his passion. His commitment to ruling Bergisson, however, has priority, even over his driving need to be with Samantha. As desire rises, and Ethan finds himself drawn into the web of his driving, relentless need for her, will he be able to embrace his blood rose or will his guilt over past events prevent him from living life to the fullest?
How can she give up the life she planned…?
Samantha can’t believe she’s a blood rose, a woman who can meet the needs of a starved mastyr vampire. Her plans never included the world of the Nine Realms in which mastyr vampires rule millions of realm-folk, but learning that she’s half-fae has changed everything. As Ethan’s blood-needs become a life-or-death struggle, and cast her into a war against the dreaded Invictus, how can she choose to embrace her new fae powers and change her life so completely? Will she take on the role forever as Ethan’s blood rose? Or will her desire to follow her life’s ambitions force her to choose against love, passion, and unbelievable fae power?
This is a series totally unlike any other I have read and I give fair warning, it's still finding its feet I think and might not appeal to all readers of paranormal romance. Strong alpha hero? Check, as we have Ethan, a master Vampire with a protective streak a mile wide and yet he seems somewhat detached at times. Feisty heroine who you want to be? Well, Samantha is a human (isn’t she?) with a strong sense of identity and her own worth but boy is she walking around with blinkers on! It's a very passionate relationship that brings them together and yet, am I the only reader who wants to shake them? I don't think I have read about two more stubborn characters in a long while. I did empathise with Samantha as the life she had mapped out was most certainly about to take a one hundred and eighty degree turn but the payback was something so worth having.
What do I say? Ms Roane does an amazing job when it comes to romance and even though I'm not a huge fan of her idea of "vibrations" I didn't even mind that in this book. If you want a story chock full of surprises and tension, then Embrace the Magic certainly delivers. This was a quick fun read with a couple of obstinate characters but luckily the end had them pulling together and I think I am finally getting hooked on the Blood Rose series!
