Blood Guard by Megan Erickson IS LIVE! You'll want to sink your teeth into this romance!
“Megan Erickson knows how to bring the heat! With a kick-butt heroine and a hero to die for, Blood Guard kept me reading all night long.”New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff
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.

It has been a while since I have read a PNR book and with a slightly new spin on the vampire world Blood Guard didn’t disappoint. I won't bore you with a recap because the synopsis explains the story well.

I think Blood Guard is a great start to a new series. I found Athan to be extremely protective and honorable. He was a refreshing take on a vampire. Usually they take without concern for the consequences but Athan was loyal to the bone. Even though he wanted Tendra for himself he stood his ground and wouldn’t let himself have her. Tendra was a fun heroine. She had to quickly accept her new reality but the author did a good job here of not dancing around the subject. Athan had to show himself to Tendra and even though it seemed crazy, seeing is believing. Blood Guard is rounded out nicely with some interesting side characters including Tendra’s intuitive cat Brex. If you are looking for a new PNR world to step into I definitely think Blood Guard is worth your time. I particularly loved the ending and can’t wait to see what the next couple has in store for us in book two. Well Done!
