What’s a girl to do when she learns she’s descended from a vampire? Being unable to age is only the beginning… Laura Dantonville is a Primary school teacher with one wish—to marry her boyfriend, Detective Matt Sommers. When her aunt Judy reveals a frightening family secret that explains her rare genetic mutation, it threatens to propel her into a dark underworld where her true family waits. Laura’s future with Matt hangs in the balance. Alec Munro never wanted to become guardian to a Dantonville regardless that her blood is coveted by his vampire-kind. But his sire, Lucien Lebrettan, gave him no choice. Now he’s faced with not only protecting the girl, but fathering a child with her in order to end his servitude—and a centuries-old curse. … which some among his kind will do anything to prevent.

My review: I have read my fare share and than some of paranormal books.  I admit the first chapter of Bloodpledge was slower as the writing style seemed less descriptive than I was used to in other books.  I was captivated by the storyline and continued to read, quickly adapting to Timas' writing style.  I breezed through the book in less than 24 hours and thoroughly enjoyed the entire story.  The passion built between Alec and Laura is hot and the strange, but realistic behaviours of Matt completely enthralled me.  The plot twists kept coming and unraveling more secrets and more excitement. I was very excited to read this novel and look forward to reading more of this series! I would give this book a 4 out of 5.
