Tracy's Vamp & Racey Book Blog Review Caressed by a Crimson Moon

Caressed by a Crimson Moon 
(Rulers of Darkness #3)
4.5 Stars

I dived into this book one cold Sunday afternoon and finished it at 1.10 am, had to see how it finished!

Eva and Hadrians story pulled me in very quickly and I loved how most part of the book was about their developing relationship, the sexual tension was something else.

Eva is a half-breed, badly treated by her father's pack. Now she's being sent off to live with a vampire a mad vampire at that!

“A monster haunts these halls, little one,” he hissed. “A bloodthirsty, half crazed demon that likes to make snacks out of little ladies like you.”

Hadrian has been in a hiding from his clan for a long time, he has many demons messing with his head. He has decided to come back to civilization and reclaim his throne, just at the same time a new ward is coming to stay - Eva.

As I said the story focuses on Eva and Hadrian and the many issues surrounding them, there is a back story to the vampire world they live in, but this book can easily be read as a standalone.

Eva is a tough cookie and goes after what she wants. Hadrian is so guarded, he wants Eva very much but he keeps disappearing when things heat up between them, yes its frustrating but it certainly builds the sexual tension.

“Vampire,” she bit out as if it were a curse, “I want you to take me. I want you to drive your cock into me again and again. I want you to make me come so hard I scream.”
*******
“Eva,” he rasped. “Last chance.” He towered over her, a dark warrior king. Her dark warrior king. “I intend to have you.”

I have to say Falcon is very likable as a character, he isn't a king but wow his story would be amazing.

I really enjoyed this book, loved Hadrian and Eva and glad they got there happy ever after.

Chapters Through Life: Review Caressed by the Edge of Darkness

Caressed by the Edge of Darkness 
(Rulers of Darkness #5)  
 4.5 stars of 5

Caressed by the edge of darkness is the fifth book in the Rulers of Darkness series. It's my first book by this author and can easily be read as a standalone.
Gabriel wants revenge on his enemies. They took his innocence and darkened his soul. He was beaten, starved and bought to the edge of death. He isn't a good man, in fact, he is a strong vampire and he knows revenge will be sweet. In his quest to bring down his enemies he comes across a human girl who plagues his dreams. For the first time, he finds himself wanting to help someone else.
Jordon is in trouble and that's putting it mildly. She's been drugged and tossed around like dirt. Luckily her innocence has kept her from the fate of her fellow captives. She has no hope of escape and her future is looking worse than her past. She is to be auctioned off to the highest bidder and used for god knows what. She's tried her best to escape, but she needs an angel. Gabriel is set to be her knight in shining armour, but he is no angel. He's king of a vampire clan and lost his heart long ago. He wants to help the girl and stop her fate being similar to his own. One look at Jordan and he's in big trouble. Can he let her go and give her a second chance at life? Maybe it isn't as simple as that. Maybe they can save each other.
Caressed by the edge of darkness is a will they/won't they sexual frustration book with some hot sexy scenes. It has an interesting backstory which will continue in other books from others points of view (I'm guessing). I really enjoyed this book and would happily read others in the series. What makes a king? This book may be fiction, but it's no fairytale. The story will continue, however, this chapter is closed and I was satisfied with the ending.
4.5 stars out of 5. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.  
Caressed by the Edge of Darkness

Hardened by centuries of torture, former blood slave, Gabriel Erhard, is driven by an insatiable need to destroy his enemies. Violence darkens his battered soul, leaving no place for mercy in his world. Gabriel’s only desire is vengeance—until he finds her.

Seized by vampires, bound as a slave, and placed on the auction block, Jordan Culver is instantly entranced by the dangerous male who claims her. Jordan’s new captor vows to set her free, but his haunted gaze burns with savage desire and his wicked kiss makes her crave his touch and...complete surrender.


While Gabriel battles his enemies, he will break every sacred law to achieve his ultimate goal—uniting the Outcast Society and creating a new vampire Clan. But the distracting human with mesmerizing violet eyes jeopardizes his plans. With very soft whisper she evokes his tormented memories, testing his sanity and challenging his every boundary. Can Jordan help him overcome the miseries of his past and find a future with her?

Sexy Snippets

Sexy Snippet Tuesday

Today's sexy snippet is from Caressed by a Crimson Moon (Rulers of Darkness #3)

~ Eva couldn't find her voice. Her throat was dry and tight. She hated how good he felt atop her and loved it at the same time. He shifted, his erection pressing between her thighs. Her already rapid heartbeat doubled, if that were possible. Her breaths came in gasps, her breasts brushing his solid chest.
Hadrian groaned, his cock strained against his pants and when he shifted…Damn, her body was soft where it should be and leanly muscled. He wanted to strip her then and there. He brutally fought the need to claim her here in the snow. His gaze traveled over her face. Her cheeks were flushed with anger; her amber eyes shimmered with lust, and her scent…Gods, that vanilla scent. Unable to resist, he leaned his head down and pulled aside her jacket. Her pulse tantalizingly danced for him and he traced the spot with his tongue. She shivered beneath him, her hips rocked sweetly, softly against his and he ground into her.
Panting, she said, “Get off of me, leech.”
A wickedly delicious smile curled the corners of his lips. “No. I rather like the position we are in.”~

Guest Post with Amanda J. Greene on Book Lovers 4Ever

Book Lovers 4Ever

Guest post by Amanda J. Greene
I have always been infatuated with vampires. I love the paranormal realm. Authors have free reign to create a unique and captivating world – Scottish vampires in kilts. Heck yeah!

The first paranormal romance I had ever read was Dark Gold by Christine Feehan. I was in high school and, at the time, I wasn’t aware that is was part of a series. When I discovered there were more, I snatched them bad boys up. Then I met and fell in love with the Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunters and J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood. I have way too many book boyfriends. It’s difficult to keep track.

Having ready many paranormal romance novels, my imagination went wild with story ideas. As the cliché goes, write what you love and I did! It took time to discipline myself and concentrate on one storyline at a time. I began with Caressed by Moonlight, which was originally a standalone but quickly became the first installment within the Rulers of Darkness series. I have to say, I’ve had so much fun writing these books. Especially Caressed by Shadows, Rulers of Darkness, # 4. The book is packed with action while our hero and heroin battle their enemies and their attraction for each other. The tension is high between Falcon and Sonya and when they finally succumb to their passion it is explosive. Caressed by Shadows is fast paced, romantic, and sets up the next book, Caressed by the Edge of Darkness.

The paranormal romance genre is limitless for writers. So many worlds, so many mythologies, legends, and magical abilities for characters – I look forward to working with and reading this genre for years to come!

~“I’ll make you strong,” he vowed then claimed her mouth in a hot, demanding kiss.~

Description:
James Stonewoll is an Elite Assassin for the Under Realm Syndicate—an expert hunter and merciless killer. As a former pirate, he thrives on danger, the more perilous the mission, the better and he can't resist his newest contract: eliminate a rebel shape-shifting magic thief that stalks the border of the Under Realm kidnapping and murdering innocent Others. But never did the centuries old vampire anticipate playing hero to a mythical temptress with luscious curves, tantalizing lips, and hypnotic eyes.
Captured and held prisoner, Katya Moro was trapped in a seemingly endless loop of unimaginable agony as her magic was slowly being torn from her soul. A gasp away from death, she is rescued by a sinful kiss and awakens in the strong arms of a powerful warrior whose roguish smile, sharp fangs, and intense strength unlock dormant instincts within her, an all-consuming madness that demands complete surrender.
Gazing down at her, James knew he had to kill her. Dark Magic Wielders, like the beautiful female he’d found, were a grave threat to human society and were not permitted to roam the mortal world. But Katya’s smoky voice and sweet kisses stir a fierce hunger inside him. She is unpredictable, uncontrollable and wickedly seductive—his perfect kind of dangerous. To keep her safe, James will protect her from the magic thieves that hunt her and his fellow assassins until he can find a way to return Katya to her home in the Under Realm.
Can Katya’s passion conquer the darkness within his soul?
