Peek Inside Bittersweet Blood

Determined to solve the mystery of who she is and why everyone wants her dead, Tara Collins hires Christian Roth to help her uncover the truth. But Christian is more than your average PI.

As Tara's secrets and Christians problems collide, they'll learn that some rules are meant to be broken.

Bittersweet Blood was a deliciously addictive paranormal romance/mystery complete with vampires, fae, and shapeshifters. A combination that ticked all the right boxes for me!

My English review

Mon avis en Français

Tara has led a very sheltered life, unknown to her there was a very good reason for that and a good part of the book’s plot is figuring out the “why” that goes with that story.

Mystery, intrigue, suspense and romance, all the elements I need for a good read.
There is even a touch of humor.
There were a couple of typo's, but very, very few.
Some repetitiveness, but all in all, a very good story.
I enjoyed it very much. ...more

Originally published at Book Lovers Inc.

In most fairy tales, terms like demon and fae have automatic associations with them. Fae=good and demon=bad.

But what if those are just names for otherworldly races who have different agendas from our own, and what humans think of them doesn't enter into it... ...more
