One Bite

Blood Prince Series, #2

The second book in the Blood Prince series is a mesmerizing fairy tale romance that puts the reader under its spell. Irina is determined to undermine Prince Kirill at every turn, normally he would just kill her himself, but for some reason he can’t bring himself to do it. Will he figure things out before someone else takes care of it for him?

The plot of this fascinating version of ‘Snow White’ flows smoothly at a fast pace that keeps readers on the edge with lots of suspense, drama, action, magic, betrayal and romance. The author brings the story to life with well written scenes and details which inspire vivid images that capture the imagination and tension builds throughout the kingdom as danger escalates and Irina and Kirill try to work out their differences. The strong compelling characters are easily related to and enchant the readers drawing them deeper into the story.

The chemistry between Kirill and Irina radiates from every page and the relationship has fireworks exploding throughout as both try to deny their attraction and with their political views and of course Prince Kirill arrogance and Irina’s stubborn nature, the reader is entertained with some humorous arguments and snarky dialogue. It’s easy to get caught up in the drama of the story with its multiple conflicts going on and the characters themselves really capture the attention with their charismatic personalities that leap off the pages with vibrant intensity.

First, let me say, while it can stand on its own, to get the full impact of the prophecy as it unfolds, I would recommend that the books be read in order. The author has taken the fairy tales and mixed it with myths and legends and created her own fascinating tale that entertains and enchants the reader. I believe the next book is the demons story and I can’t wait to find out how his part of the prophecy plays out.

Book Blurb for One Bite

Acclaimed author Jennifer Blackstream continues her sensual Blood Prince series with book two, a Snow White tale like never before. A sizzling tale of a power-hungry vampire and a fierce rusalka maiden -- unlikely soul mates whose passionate tempers and fierce determination will put their tentative alliance to the test.

A power-hungry vampire in search of a fruitful alliance . . .

Kirill is a vampire prince plotting to be a vampire king. His immortal father has no intentions of vacating the throne anytime soon, but all good things come to those who wait…and plan. Bit by bit, Kirill is gathering political allies, forming alliances with goblins, trolls, and any other magical creatures who will speak with him. Unfortunately, his ruthless machinations can only get him so far. Some situations just require a woman’s touch. If only the fiery maiden with the power to help him didn’t strain his control over his lust for blood…and more.

A rebellious siren with a song to soothe the savage heart . . .

Irina will not cower. Not from her evil sorceress stepmother, and not from the vampire prince whose fangs threaten her with death even as his lips raise the heated desire of her bloodline. With a dagger at the ready, she agrees to a bargain -- her aid in his pursuit of political alliances with creatures beyond the veil in return for a reduction in the royal tithe her people are forced to pay the crown. If only sharp fangs and a sharp tongue weren’t such an incendiary combination…

Even an undead mastermind can’t foresee everything . . .

Seven dwarves. A poison apple. A glass coffin. It’s a strange and terrifying world when events can take a turn for the better or worse with just…One Bite.
