KOS MARAS’s orderly life is in shambles—he must distribute Blood Vine to a population of ailing vampires, but Hunters block him at every turn. To make matters worse, each night he watches over a temptingly beautiful woman sleeping in his bed. He is convinced love cannot last a vampire-long lifetime and an entanglement will only cause them grief, but he doesn’t have the heart to send her away.
From a long line of blood servants, LENA ISAAKSON is destined to serve a vampire, but a string of humiliating rejections thwarts her pleasure. When Kos shows her kindness, she hopes he will claim her. Instead he proves himself a coward in the face of love and sends her to serve another.
Will the dark seduction of a rakish new vampire finally bring Lena the pleasure she desires or deliver her into the hands of Hunters who want to destroy everything the Maras family has worked for?
First, this book and series is for those 18 and older. May not be for everybody.
The first book in this series, Blood Vines, introduces us not only to our characters, but also to the wine that is eventually named Blood Vines. We are then introduced Zoey and Andre, as well as Kos, Bel, and Lena. This book is about Kos and Lena’s story which I enjoyed so much. They were sweet and cute together, their was just something different about their connection.
I loved them even more than Zoey and Andre, if that tells you anything.
One of my favorite parts about this series is Amber’s take on the vampires. She adds her own unique take on them, while sticking to the basics of what we know. Their background was fun to learn and I felt like I was delving into a whole new world that made it even more exciting to uncover.
Not only are we able to learn about the history of the vampires, but Amber also gives us a look into their enemies history, the Hunters. We get bits and pieces as the story progresses, that I think adds to not only the tension, but the overall story. She gives readers a look, not just at one side, but at both so you can see the motives behind them and understand where things might be headed.
I’ve definitely enjoyed this story so far and am intrigued to find out where the series is headed. It’s clear that there’s more where this came from *grins*

About the Author
Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallops…when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons—an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days.
Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco.
