Midnight Conquest (Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles) by Arial Burnz, AJ Nuest (Editor), Mildred L. Losee (Illustrator)

Thursday, June 23, 2011
Masked in a Gypsy guise, Broderick MacDougal hides his vampiric identity while seeking to destroy the man who slaughtered his family. When an old Clan rival ensnares Broderick in a trap using an enticing widow, he is compelled to discover if she is bait or an accomplice, and the cinnamon-haired beauty is his next conquest.

Widow of an abusive husband, Davina Stewart-Russell clings to the only image that gave her strength during those dark times—the Gypsy rogue who stole her heart as a youth. After nine years, she is finally face-to-face with him again, but reality clashes with fantasy as she is confronted with Broderick’s passionate pursuit.

When Davina’s past returns to haunt her, Broderick is forced to reveal a dark secret worse than anything Davina thought possible. The challenge before them has fatal risks and neither of them is prepared for the sacrifices expected for the sake of eternal love.

Reader Advisory: This story contains explicit love scenes, described using graphic and direct language. This story also contains explicit, nail-biting scenes of violence and domestic abuse. (Don’t worry…the bad guys get it in the end!)

Good Reads Summary

The reader will first notice the cover; eye-catching and alluring the cover will pull the readers in.  The novel is very long, but this shouldn't deter a dedicated reader.  The main characters are both very easy to get to know and enjoy reading about.  The reader will like their quirks and qualities.  The plot isn't terribly unique, but it is far from boring and will hold the readers interest.  The book contains scenes of domestic abuse, a quality that only heightens the novels intrigue.  Domestic abuse is an issue that shouldn't be ignored or swept under the carpet, the author handles the issue admirably.  There is no cliff-hanger and the ending is very satisfying.  This novel is recommended for readers who enjoy paranormal romance (adults or young adults). 

4 stars
