Once they killed to feed,
now they thrill to feed.
Across continents, over 500 years.
Embrace the new paranormal mythology where Vampires and Shapeshifters move along side us, within society.
This paranormal trilogy explores erotic romance with sensually integrated graphic love scenes and BDSM between consenting partners.
Drop dead gorgeous alive, Matt Brenner has never lacked for feminine attention. Undead, he’s even more potent. Immortality would be stellar if only he accepted his life as a vampire. Matt and fellow vamp Richard Hiatt created a BDSM empire catering to Vampire/Doms and willing donor/subs who trade sexual ecstasy for blood. The clubs have made Matt’s existence manageable, if uninspired.
Inspiration comes in the form of Catherine Temple.
Matt’s made it a rule not to get emotionally involved with human women, and he sticks to it. Cat is the woman who can entice him to break all the rules. When Matt is introduced to a controversial drug that allows him a human lifetime with Cat, it’s too exquisite to resist.
Powerful elements of the vampire nation are against it, and though Matt tries to protect Cat, love must be stronger than death.
SDV (Single Dom Vampire) unknowingly ISO compassionate, sincere, spontaneous SMW (Single Mortal Woman). Extra points for patience, brains and beauty. Handsome, powerful, Rick Hiatt has managed romance and sex within the roles of Dom/sub relationships for five hundred years. What if there is something more? What if the delicious Anna Curley, shielded from the world of dark sex games, can show him?
Rick returns to the helm of his international BDSM Empire after confronting a disaster within his vampire Family. His nemesis, Veronique Moreau, could destroy the fragile veil between the Vamp/Mortal worlds, leaving vampires exposed. He meets Anna, a guileless young woman with enough savvy to see trouble coming in the form of a vampire hunter.
Their worlds collide. Swept into the dangers of preternatural conflict, Rick and Anna experience exquisite passion and heart-stopping peril. Is love enough? They could lose their lives as well as their hearts.
Adam Lachlan, a tall drink of scrumptious masculinity, has been exiled from his dragon-shifter clan for the past two hundred years. His bad-boy charm has been harnessed to succeed as a Master Dom in the mortal world. He’s spent decades isolating himself emotionally.
Willow Greer is beautiful, intelligent and charming. Men have pursued her, but she’s flown from them all. Willow has a secret burden. Adopted in infancy, and having no explanation for shifting into a Pegasus at puberty, she’s cloistered herself romantically. Without knowing the full truth of her nature, how can she commit to love?
When Adam’s fire meets Willow’s short fuse, flirtation is on! At the onset, secrets are guarded, once their true selves are revealed, the complications begin.
Can they overcome the problems of romance between different shifter species? Will they drop their emotional baggage and risk love’s bondage?
Appetite for Blood
In the beginning, there was an appetite for blood.
A revolution is roaring into the 1920s! Vampires, who previously killed to feed, now thrill to feed. The revolution is led by a four-hundred-year-old vampire, Rick Hiatt, and his newly turned ward, Matt Brenner.
This is not the first time Rick has encountered the brutal treachery of the Moreau family of vampires, but he and Matt seek to make it the last.
Los Angelinos mortal and immortal are under attack by the entitled, remorseless Moreaus. Dragon-shifter Adam Lachlan and seductresses Venus and Luna, team up with Rick and Matt to put an end to the siege.
Brute strength won't take these hellions down, but they might be hoodwinked into exposing themselves.
Read about the origins of the fast friendship between Matt, Rick, and Adam, and see how their BDSM empire grew from humble beginnings to an international conglomerate.
Appetite for Blood
How does one start a BDSM empire?…
Rick Hiatt stole my heart the first time I read Blood Emerald. For being over four hundred years old, this man seriously knows how to make me blush. Being able to dive into his past and understand why he’s this devious hunk o’ man was intoxicating!
I’m eternally thrilled that Amber Anthony wrote a prequel to the Blood Trilogy. (Eternally, get it? Hee hee.) I’m not sure if I’d call this a “prequel,” though. For me, it was like a saucy epilogue of sorts. I guess it doesn’t matter what you call it. I binge read everything from Amber Anthony regardless of the recommended order. I’ll be obsessed either way.

Okay, people. It took me a long time to open this book. Why?
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS COVER? Drool.
You can call me shallow, but do I care? Of course not.
BECAUSE LOOK AT THIS COVER!
What starts as an accidental friendship, quickly turns into this shifter smut fest. (I bet you’re looking at the book cover again…good for you.) ...
What they should have done is left their love-fest behind before everything got complicated. And it does get complicated. Two different lives, two different paths. Now, they’re in this addictive limbo of mystery, lies, and confusion.
This book has so much life. Amber Anthony knows how to bring characters’ inner demons to the forefront and challenge their every move. That is what makes a good author. From Adam being the Master Dom of kink and Willow on her massive journey of self-discovery, Blood Dragon is shifter crème de la crème.
As our characters dance in their own conflicts, inevitably, they find their way to each other. And every reason they shouldn’t have been together soon becomes the only lifeline they have.
Only Amber Anthony, I tell ya.
For the full NDP Rook Review, visit the site here:
Rick Hiatt is a hero to die for in this stunning standalone. Literally.
We were first introduced to this devilishly handsome vampire in the first book of the Blood series. Now, Rick is the leading man in this second installment and readers are going to melt as his story unfolds.
The context is immaculate and the characters are wonderfully flawed. Although the heroine is fascinating and complex, Rick and his dominating ways are the tugboat dragging readers through a flood of emotion.
Amber Anthony does no wrong when it comes to sculpting a man who is brought to his knees by a savvy woman.
