FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from the author, editor, publisher, or Promo Host. This is my honest opinion about this book and I did not receive any monetary compensation for writing this review nor was I obligated to write a positive one.

She took a deep breath. “Okay I must admit parts of that do scare me a bit but Zach, the thought of you feeding off someone else upsets me! I don’t want you to do that – can we start off slowly? Maybe a couple of teeny feeds a day?”

He frowned. “Teeny? You mean small?”

“Yes, small, could we do that?” she implored – willing for him to agree.

Zach drew her closer and gave her a little kiss. “Yes my precious little one. Though you know what that will mean?”

She frowned. “No? What?” He had ‘that’ look in his eyes again and her heart leapt.

“Well, the best time for feeding for a couple – well let’s just say – it’s usually in bed – or the shower – or in fact on top of the cabinet in the bathroom! You get my meaning?” He smiled wickedly and ran his tongue along her neck.

Oh my! She was going to be a VERY happy woman. She ran her hand down the front of his chest, feeling the strong, very strong, muscles underneath his shirt.

“Why don’t we practice now? Just so I know you’re getting enough – what did you call it – oh yes – sustenance!” she all but whimpered.

My Rant: I love the concept of defenders blood. How can you go wrong with a hot vampire, wolfs, and witched. You just cant. But you can make it better b throwing in some fairies, angels and demons. The beginning of the story hooks you because you are stuck on finding out who and what was chasing Alexina and while you reading to get down to the meat and bones of the book this awesome romance between her and Zach. There is a spark between the two characters and you know that they are meant to be together. I liked the banter between them but when you throw in other characters it only got better. The action in this book exploded as the plot began to thicken and expand into the debts unknown. But what surprise me the most is that once I began reading this story I got trapped in it and just couldn’t let it go. There were times in the book where it was hard for me to keep up with the Scottish slang but that does not take away from the story at all. A.K. Michaels has a knack for writing paranormal romance she makes you believe in the characters and the story. The elements of a good and evil battle are in the mist. You begin to feel a rush of panic because you want the battle to be overcome by the good. Zach and Alex heat up the scenes and you can help but swoon over Zach because he is hot, and I love hot vampires that are over possessive. I don’t know but that factor alone has me jumping through hoops. I really enjoyed this story, its characters and the action packed plot that I am looking forward to reading the series.

My Recommendation: 

Overall I rated this book 3 ½ out of 5 purple Rant Hearts and would recommend this series to any reader that enjoys a good paranormal romance. 

A K Michaels was born in Scotland quite a number of years ago! She was married at a young age and is a mother to three much loved children. After the birth of her last child she went back to higher education and studied for a year before gaining employment in the banking industry. She worked in that role for a number of years before leaving, both the job and the country.

She lived abroad for a few years before returning to Scotland and finally taking up her dream - writing.

She is the author of the Defender's Blood series of books and two other series, The Witch, The Wolf and the Vampire and also Sabrina's Vampire, together with a Wolf Erotica Novella, Lori's Wolf. Her books fall into the Paranormal/Urban Fantasy genre and she loves writing those particular kinds of stories where she can let her imagination run wild!

She now spends her time reading - everything from Sci Fi to Crime, Erotica to Fantasy, Thrillers to Paranormal Romance. She loves spending time with her family and, of course, writing!

She has Twitter, Facebook Page and a Website.
