BLOODGUARD_TEASER3



Enter a world of immortal danger and desire—and discover an incredible fate borne of blood.


Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .


Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.

What I thought about Blood Guard

 In this new series from Megan Erickson, there's a secret society of vampires living in the shadows of gritty urban underground. The Gregorie clan has been at war with the Valerian clan over how they treat humans.  The Gregorie clan wants to protect the humans, but the Valerians do not. It's taken ten years to develop the Sanguivita, a special human who will provide the blood to feed the Gregorie clan and keep them in prominence.

Tendra has no idea about the vampires that exist in her neighborhood until the day she is taken by one of them. Athan is committed to protecting Tendra but first he has to tell her how important she is to their clan. After everything that she's gone through with her mother in the past, it doesn't take a lot for her to put the pieces together and believe Athan. Now they just need to get back to their clan headquarters, which isn't an easy task considering they have assassins after them.

Blood Guard is an action packed paranormal with a great romance between Athan and Tendra.  I could feel their growing passion as I read the book and I worried about the fact that Athan was supposed to deliver Tendra to his brother Idris who is supposed to take the throne with the Sanguivita as his wife. The action and romance come in equal amounts and I loved that about this book.

Blood Guard had everything I want in a paranormal romance. The world building was nicely meshed into the scenes between strong characters that I cared about from the start. It was the romantic elements that really had me with this book too.  There's plenty of intrigue too in an action filled conclusion. 

If you like paranormal romance, you should definitely pick this one up.
