When a blood rose enters Mastyr
Ethan’s world, will he succumb to his deepest needs or lose her forever to an
enemy intent on possessing her at all costs?
He desperately needs his blood rose…
Ethan, mastyr vampire of the
Bergisson Realm, never thought to find his blood rose, the one woman who could
ease the blood-starvation he’s endured for decades. But Samantha carries a
surprising level of power as her newly discovered fae heritage emerges and she
connects with his personal realm frequency, a vibration that ignites his
passion.  His commitment to ruling
Bergisson, however, has priority, even over his driving need to be with
Samantha.  As desire rises, and Ethan
finds himself drawn into the web of his driving, relentless need for her, will
he be able to embrace his blood rose or will his guilt over past events prevent
him from living life to the fullest?

As Ethan’s blood-needs become a life-or-death struggle, and cast her
into a war against the dreaded Invictus, how can she choose to embrace her new
fae powers and change her life so completely? 
Will she take on the role forever as Ethan’s blood rose?  Or will her desire to follow her life’s
ambitions force her to choose against love, passion, and unbelievable fae

Chapter One
Mastyr Vampire Ethan stared down into
Sweet Gorge where two of his Guardsmen hauled up a body on a sling carried
between them. They flew side by side, matching their movements by long
practice. The night air, though usually fresh in early April, carried a rancid
edge, something he’d connected with this area for a long time.

But he’d lost another of his Guard
here at Sweet Gorge, killed sometime this past week, but located by a search
patrol just a half hour ago. And this was the fourth murder in a month.
Something was on the wind.

“Invictus?” Finn scratched behind his
right ear. He was Ethan’s second-in-command, his long red hair a beacon in any

Using both hands, Ethan shoved his
own unruly hair away from his face. Sweat dripped from his forehead. The temp
wasn’t too warm in Bergisson Realm this time of year, but when his
blood-starvation reached difficult levels, he’d often perspire like he’d been
battling for hours. “What the hell was Paul doing patrolling in this area?”

Ethan didn’t know Paul well, but he
felt responsible for him, as he did for all his Guard. He’d built his force to
three hundred strong, but Paul, as a new recruit, wasn’t well-known to many of
the Guardsmen.

“He didn’t have orders to go out
here, not with three other Guardsmen dead in the past few months along the
eastern border.” Ethan let his gaze move from one end of the gorge to the
other, then along the monolith to the east. A familiar heavy guilt clawed at
his chest. This part of his realm was off-limits having been the place of a
massacre forty years earlier.
 “Maybe his body was dumped.”

Ethan’s frown tightened his forehead.
“Most likely.”

There was a connection between Sweet
Gorge and the Invictus. He just didn’t know what it was.
Sweet Gorge used to be a place of
great beauty and had once been a modest resort, a place his family had been to
a lot in its prime. Fae leadership had also met here often.

Now his mother, father and sister
were gone, lost in the attack, along with many loved ones, over two hundred
realm killed all at one time.

Afterward, the stream had dried up,
the source cursed by a powerful fae of unknown ancestry. No one had seen the
fae female or the deed, only that the stream was blocked and no amount of power
had ever released it. A wall of crystals resided there and none of the fae he
knew would go near it.

Besides, there was always the stench
to warn realm-folk away, of something not right, very ancient, and deadly.
He glanced over the wooded ridgeline
along the north ridge. A breeze picked up sending sharp pine scents through the
But something else struck his
nostrils, the scent of dark fae magic, as though it waited there. His muscles
flexed involuntarily along the insides of his arms. Yet in all these decades
not a single fae of power, in any of the Nine Realms, had been able to figure
out where all that power was coming from, not even Vojalie, the most powerful
fae he knew.
