The second book in the Sons of Navarus series! Includes the short story Longing. I am everything forbidden. I am vampire. Haunted by betrayal, Saint hides in the human world, giving his heart to no one and finding the only solace from his past in the arms of human women. Now as the Archons begin their takeover of the vampire world, this Son of Navarus has been marked for death. Summoned to defeat the Archons by the world that shunned him, Saint must face his past and Solenne, the woman he loved and lost a century ago, for only in accepting her will his body and soul finally find salvation.
Meet Saint, otherwise known as Declan Collins. He’s nicknamed Saint due to the fact he has been only with human females for a while now. He gave up vampire women a long time ago when a certain vampire female broke his heart. Saint is the next on the hit list for the Archons. The Archons want him dead not only because of him being a Son of Navarus but for other reasons that even his other fellow vampires do not understand.
The one to protect him and keep him hidden for a while is the only who broke his heart a long time ago, Solenne. She knows he has never forgiven her for what she did, but she wants to help keep him alive. She has never stopped loving him, and the time she broke his heart was for a good reason at least that is what she thought because of a specific person threatening her.
Now Saint has to fight his urge of being with Solenne again because the female vamp keeps intruding in his thoughts when he’s trying to make love to human female or even think of another woman.
Solenne also has to deal with Saint’s new ways, and all she wants to do is give herself over to him like vampires always do.
My thoughts on Blood Betrayed were of course that I LOVED EVERY minute of it. I had a hard time putting it down. I clicked with both characters right away. Saint because of his past with Solenne and Solenne because she was trying everything to get back with Saint even if she had to help him with his human female addiction problem.
The kicker to the story is, not only the Archons trying to kill Saint, but what Solenne has to do to keep Saint safe and the one person who can ruin everything between Solenne and Saint again.
I was on the edge of my seat when it came to Solenne and Saint. I had to keep turning the pages to find out what happened next to the characters. It was a big doozy when the truth finally came out.
I felt terrible for both Solenne and Saint. ( I won’t spoil the storyline though for anyone who wants to read this book ).
Oh..and Vasilije and Sasa appear in this book as well as other characters. I want to find out about Dante. =)
I highly recommend this book to paranormal romance readers, erotica readers, and vampire lovers out there.
This book will take you on a roller coaster of emotions though. Be prepared for some hot sex scenes, sad scenes, and scenes that will make you want to slap someone around. Grrr, I was so mad on what happened between Solenne and Saint. Oh…and don’t even get me started on what Saint had to deal with at the beginning of it all.
Gabrielle Bisset knows how to get a reader’s emotions going like crazy.
Forewarning though…be prepared to take some cold showers after reading the sex scenes. Saint knows how to take care of a female just like Vasilije did …maybe a little better though. =)
