Taste: Kingdom of Blood and Ash
D.S. Murphy

Vampire Magic 1 : TASTE - Kingdom of Blood and Ash by [Murphy, D.S.]“Hunger Games meets Shade of Vampire.” ♛ YABookWorm

An arrogant vampire prince. A beautiful rebel who's more than she seems. A love that could save the kingdom… or destroy it.

For most girls, the choosing is a privilege and an honor.
For me, it's a dangerous curse.

When it's my turn to be chosen – married off to the gorgeous prince Damien and whisked away to the royal palace – I discover my new home is a gilded cage, and the politics of the citadel are far more dangerous than the beasts that roam the wilderness or the burning embers that fall from the sky.
My new life turns into a nightmare, as I watch a corrupt king rule with an iron fist. I'll have to fight to prove my place here, to protect a system I'm not even sure I believe in. All I want to do is save my mother, but I'll need Damien's help, and blood, to do it.

If the king learns the truth about who I really am, not even my immortal husband will be able to save me. But if I can unlock my newfound abilities, I might just be strong enough to save us both–as long as his father doesn't kill me first.

Not every one is happy to be ruled.
And some will fight to be free.
Live together, or die apart.


House of Guardians: Paranormal Romance – Sons of the Olympian Gods (The Ambrosia Trilogy Book 1)
Beatrice Sand

House of Guardians: Paranormal Romance - Sons of the Olympian Gods (The Ambrosia Trilogy Book 1) by [Sand, Beatrice]“Is this really a demigod? I don’t exactly know what my expectations were – it’s not like I have anything to compare it to. But I certainly did not expect a demigod to be walking around in ripped jeans with a beat up face and complaining about a headache. I didn’t expect someone with such sad, tired eyes. But I also know that under normal circumstances, that same face is flawless.”

“This story is dark, intelligent, and entirely gripping.” ~ Horrorgirldonna
“Has everything a girl could ever ask for in a book.” ~ Amazon Review
“An emotional ride.” ~ Goodreads Review
“It is sensuous without being smutty.” ~ Amazon Review

She is now exactly where some higher power wants her to be. But it’s not until she meets the proud and mysterious Sam Laurens that she feels something strange is going on. Why does he keep interfering in her life? Then Laurel finds out about Sam’s ominous ancestry and a whole different fear arises. Fear of who Sam really is. Fear of her own feelings. And when she learns the dark truth about her own future, a sinister secret that will change everything as soon as she turns nineteen, she wants to run and hide, but soon realizes that there is no hiding from fate.
