In a dark world where vampires exist and where Source Blood, a rare human blood type, can bestow godlike powers upon them, the vampire Venators of the Sovereignty fight to protect the humans by banishing those who drink it to the endless dark.

Exiled from his family and with only his duty to sustain him, Kearn has been on the trail of an elusive Source Blood abuser for three years. When he saves a beautiful human female from the vampire’s grasp, it turns out she’s the lead he’s been waiting for. Amber is a Source Blood and the perfect bait, but for who?

As they race to catch the vampire and survive the cruel games he plays, Amber is pulled deeper into Kearn’s world and discovers the painful secrets he hides behind his handsome but emotionless exterior—hurt that she has the power to heal if she is brave enough.

Forbidden Blood is book one in the Venator series and a dark, sensual tale of betrayal, revenge and a love that knows no bounds.

A great book for any Paranormal Romance fan. I really enjoyed the characters and their development throughout FORBIDDEN BLOOD. I took to them right away and had no problems tapping into the emotions that they felt. Kearn starts off pretty cold with Amber and slowly thaws out to become a great protector and partner. I felt that Kearn and Amber's relationship progressed at a great rate and they complemented eachother really well. The sex scenes blend into the rest of the story perfectly and never seem out of place. I can honestly say that I didn't catch on to who the villain was until close to the reveal, Felicity did a great job of giving just enough clues and information. The pacing of the book as a whole was great and I never got bored or felt rushed. There was some great action and suspense scenes. There were many time throughout reading FORBIDDEN BLOOD that there was no way I was going to get up off the couch and put it down no matter how loud my kids screamed at me to get moving lol. I will definitely be following this series and cant wait to see what comes next.

I gave it 4/5 stars
