A Kiss Of Blood by Kallysten 4*
BLURB: All Deidra wanted was a family.
Instead of a husband and children however, fate gives her a Sire, a clan, and a village she is sworn to protect from beastly demons. It also gives her Tristen, who teaches her what it means to be a vampire—and what it means to love.
When her duties to her village conflict with her Sire’s orders, she has to choose which part of her family is the most important. And Tristen, confronted with her disappearance, also needs to decide where his loyalties lie.
My Review:Complimentary Review Copy Provided by Author Unlike Kallysten's more erotic stories this one is much more genteel. This does not however mean it isn't a good story because it really is. Tristan and Deidre make a lovely couple and the story is short but sweet with just enough conflict to make it interesting. Deirdre also comes across as a really strong person that I would love to read more about, especially her interaction with the humans she protects. I hope Kallysten means to write more in this vein as even without hot sex scenes it was a story worth reading.
