Title: Blood and Bondage
Source: Author
Genre: Paranormal Erotic Romance
Length: Novella
Anaïs Moreau is a classically-trained ballerina born during Louis XVI’s reign in France. After falling victim to the deviant sexual appetites of a nobleman at court, she suffers betrayal and abandonment at the hands of her aristocratic father. In turn, she embraces her best friend’s gift of immortality and becomes a vampire. For centuries, Anaïs preys on calculating womanizers whose sole purpose is to manipulate women. Until one day, she meets her match.

Oliver Polinski works for the Bureau of Paranormal Affairs. His job is to plan covert missions and train his army of soldiers to hunt down and kill supernatural creatures, vampires most notably. When Oliver and Anaïs cross paths at a mutual friend’s wedding, they learn that they both prefer sex to be a bit kinkier than most.

Can these two star-crossed lovers overcome blinding hate and prejudice for one another and find love? Only time will tell.




Don't be misled by the erotic title, Blood and Bondage has a great story as well as some really HOT sex!
Human stalkers are dangerous, but what happens when you made the mistake of making your crazy ex a vamp? Things go crazy! For 100 years Anaïs has been avoiding her crazy former flame.  She stayed secluded in her Parisian flat, but when her godson gets married she hops a plane for the states.  Unknown to Anaïsi, or her extremely good looking dance partner, Oliver, her stalker notices her taking too keen of an interest in the human she's spending time with at the reception. Sending him on a bloody murdering spree and sending the mementos of his dreadful deeds to Anaïs. Luckily for her Oliver is a BPA agent, skilled in the art of defending against evil vamps. But after a long history of being betrayed by men can she trust one with her life?
Oliver and Anaïs' chemistry is off the chars. Even though they couldn't be more different they somehow make it work in an explosive way.  The story is well written with a quick pace. I never felt like any particular scene dragged. My only complaint would be that when the sex finally started to happen, it seemed the BDSM came out of no where. Don't get me wrong, it was H.O.T., but it was odd how there was no segue from speaking about the architecture of a Victorian mansion to Oliver whipping out a flogger and telling Anaïs to strip. I was so confused at the abrupt change of pace I went back a few pages to make sure I hadn't missed anything ;)
I recommend Blood and Bondage for the medium to above BDSM reader. If sugar kink is your thing you may be shocked at some of the sexual activities. In, all it's a great read, and if you love vampires it's a must for you TBR pile :)
*Sexual activities include bondage, flogging, rimming, voyeurism, and consequential blood play. (The heroine is a vamp, after-all)
