Peek Inside Blood and Metal

The copilot of the Blood Hunter, Daisy, is a newly-turned vampire, and she's hungry. Unfortunately, the only thing that can distract her from said hunger is sex...which is a problem when she can barely refrain from draining any man dry within moments. But old flame Fergal Cain might just be the sexy-assed solution to her problem. Except Fergal has problems of his own. And if the poison coursing through his blood doesn't kill him, the hot little vamp he can't resist might do the honors herself...

She’s his last chance for redemption…if she doesn’t kill him first.


Copilot of the Blood Hunter, Daisy is a newly-turned vampire, and she’s hungry. Really hungry and it’s interfering with her plans for revenge. Unfortunately, the only thing that can distract her from said hunger is sex…which is a problem when she can barely refrain from draining any man dry within moments. But old flame Fergal Cain might just be the sexy-assed solution to her problem.


Part human, part cyborg, and with a poison coursing through his system, Fergal’s running out of time to find the scientist who has the cure. Unfortunately for him, the misfit crew of the Blood Hunter put a serious kink in his plans. And if the poison doesn’t kill him, the hot little vamp he can’t resist might do the honors herself…

Fast and fun addition to the Dark Desires sci-fi romance series. Full of the sexy humor I've come to expect from the series and, even at book five, this one doesn't disappoint. Who knew cyborgs could be so sexy? ...more

What do you do when you get kidnapped not once but twice by the same people, you join the crew! I've been following this series from the beginning and it has been an awesome ride.

Fantastic work yet again by Nina Croft. You can tell this is a series she loves and has been known to admit it being a favourite of hers.

There are time's Fergal's words make me hot, damn that man is sexy, “well, that didn’t go as planned. You know how long it’s been since I was with a naked woman?

A mixture of myth and modern technology, Blood and Metal is a strange brew but a great read. The two main characters are well developed and I enjoyed the storyline.

I made a HUGE mistake! I let this fifth book in Nina Croft's Dark Desires series sit on my Kindle carousel since the day it was published eight months ago. I tend to get bored by the characters, universe and writing style of an author after the third book in a series. Most of the time, I feel the... ...more
