One thought on “Desire by Blood

  1. ♆ BookAddict✒ La Crimson Femme

    This is a surprise sleeper story for me I ve read Ms Schroeder once before and she was enjoyable but not too memorable This one is definitely memorable It is rare for me to come across a vampire story set in historical London I liked the premise The world building was decent I hoped for and expect to learn in the following books The characters were stereotypical arrogant male and bluestocking female I liked this about the historical paranormal romance The sex in this story is reminiscent of bo [...]

    Desire by Blood By Blood, 1 is one damn sexy vampire romance In Desire by Blood Melissa Schroeder really made you feel connected to a wide variety of characters Each of them with a distinct story and personality Although the main plot was centered around Cordelia Collingsworth and Nicodemus Blackburn, many of those secondary characters were clearly memorable Desire by Blood has a strong historical feel Melissa Schroeder then spun into this historical setting some very strong alpha vampires who a [...]

  4. Michelle ♣ Ndayeni

    A rather compelling story that draws you in almost from the first page The attraction between Cordelia and Nico is palpable and evident from the first moment they meet It s little surprise that within hours they end up in a clinch that threatens to compromise her reputation if he doesn t marry her, which of course he does From then on they have to work at getting to know one another at the same time as the desire between them refuses to be denied and keeps pulling them together again and again w [...]

    4.5 starsI must admit that what first attracted me to this book was the cover Come on, it s very HOT Yes, I am one of those reader who likes to look at covers first and blurbs later Luckily for me, this book had both This is my first read by Melissa Schroeder and my first Victorian Paranormal book, so I did not know what to expect But the synopsis really captured my attention and I wanted to learn And boy am I glad I did The beginning of the book was a bit confusing since the author delved righ [...]

  7. Lori

    This author is very adept at her craft She built strong characters, who oozed sexual chemistry, but also maintained a sense of humor I loved the quick wit of the heroine Cordelia, in fact I almost wish the author had delved into her personality She will be an excellent supporting character in books to come, much like Adelaide will be They are vibrant strong minded women, who turn to mush with their men Nico is the alpha male we all crave, and his desire to protect his mate was sinfully attracti [...]

  8. Daria

    This has to be the first historical romance that had vamps in it, that Ive had the pleasure to read I truly loved Nico s mother, what a lady I enjoyed the fact that Cordelia was not like a lot of the Ladies of the ton She held her own with her intelligence and sassiness Nico whats not to adore about him raw sex walking in a form of a man, the situation that he found himself in upon meeting Cordelia he could have just let go, but he didn t He showed much honor.Cordelia s easy acceptance of her ne [...]

  9. Gina

    LOVED IT The combination of humorous comments and sarcasm and suspense was fantastic I was so absorbed I couldn t put it down Definitely a MUST read

  10. Katherine McCarthy

    My ThoughtsWhen it comes to character development, Melissa Schroeder is a mastermind That s what I loved about this novel the most and what I ll remember the characters and their relationships I quickly became invested in the hero Nico and the heroine Cordelia and the intensity and passion they felt for each other This impassioned feel carried through the entire novel Then as each supporting character was introduced, I loved them just as much Each has a story to tell and seriously, I can t wait [...]

    Melissa Schroeder has brought a new spin to the vampire genre with her new release, Desire By Blood Her vamps are male and fall into two categories, Made and Born, with those that are Made going insane if they re not helped in making their transition Women are Carriers and greatly sought after for their ability to birth new vamps and their blood that is also highly valued Unbeknownst to Cordelia she s a Carrier, and an unexpected encounter leads to a dramatic change in her circumstances as she b [...]

  12. Stephanie Collins

    Ahh,,, Sexy vampires and strong women such a wonderful combination.Cordelia is a bluestocking that is making a living by being a reporter She s the bastard daughter who always felt like an outsider and fears becoming like her mother She s strong and unwilling to conform to society s expectations of what a woman should be I liked her practicality and willingness to stand up for what she believed in but felt sorry for her own self doubt and denial of her sensual nature She has no idea what she is [...]

  13. Drmgrl99

    I knew getting into this book that I was going to like it cause I meane on, look at the cover and it s a Melissa Schroeder book But I was surprised just how much I really did enjoy it I m a bit of a closet historical fan but I m a huge PNR junkie so when I started the book I was immediately drawn into the world While she keeps us in the time period she adds to it with the paranormal elements and keeps building I love the world building but I would highly recommend that readers check out Melissa [...]

  17. Netanella

    A well done blend of historical romance set in the Victorian era and paranormal romance of a secret alliance of vampires who move easily within the glittering balls of upper class The author does a impressive job in combining the romantic elements of the story with a fairly unique vampire mythos.Beyond the petticoats and bonnets and cravats is a society of vampires, living amongst the humans for hundreds of years And just like their mortal counterparts, the vampires too have their social caste s [...]

  19. Cozen

    I have to say for the most part, I have been torn between wanting to like this and not liking it I started down with this story at a good 4.0 but about a 60% of the way there things started to really bug me First came the set up for additional books It was too obvious that the sister and Carrier victim would be books following this one Then came to frequent attacks followed by the same intimacy scenes been basically the same motions of the the very make out scene The little things started adding [...]

  20. Nicole

    I think the story was good, the couple had chemistry and the plot was interesting enough Something that I would have liked was a better climatic scene, the story builds up the villain so much that it was kind of disappointing that the main scene with the antagonist was not only not very dramatic, but was solved in practically two to three pages, which for me, didn t gave it the proper closure it deserved.There were also many things that were left unsaid, especifically about Nico s past that I w [...]

  21. Daneesha

    This was a great book It could be a five star book except for a few things This took place during Queen Victoria s reign, but except for the fashion, transportation, and dialogue, I didn t really feel like it was a historical book Clearly, you can tell that it isn t contemporary, I just wanted evidence, background, etc to be added to immerse me in that time period.Also, this had the potential to really make the reader feel the danger that the hero and heroine faced I didn t really feel the urge [...]

  22. Whitney

    This one really threw me It had great potential, especially in the beginning Somewhere around the middle it started to fizzle out It almost seemed like the author had a great idea and didn t know how to follow through The bad guy s storyline kind of went no where with the characters basically walking around in circles, not really having a clue what to do And the ending was so anti climatic, I didn t even realize that part of the plot was over until I re read that chapter Seriously, the confronta [...]

  23. Jax

    I won t lie, I downloaded this because it was free I had read Melissa s Santini brother books and also the continuation of that world in Tease Me but I didn t realise she has written a PNR as well so I thought I would give it a go An I am so glad I did I thought this was well written drawing you into the world skilfully and subtlety The two main characters were intriguing enough to keep your interest in their story Also all the secondary characters are written so they really support the story wi [...]

  24. Jennifer McNeill

    Very hot cover Very hot vampire romance Not that I expected less from Melissa Schroeder This story of Nico and Cordelia get better with each turn of the page Nico is drawn to Cordelia and she cannot resist him It is a mating of the highest calling Luckily Nico seems to like his strong, feisty woman, for she is his true match, his Carrier for life I also must point out that Nico s mom is the kind of mother and or mother in law that anyone would be lucky to have.Great writing Great author A must r [...]

  26. Anima

    Having always enjoyed her military romances I felt drawn to try this series Vampires are no different from men in the forces The strong sense of protection, honor and family is prevalent here also A little blood sucking during sex and some discussion of Mades and Borns gives us a fun vampire story.

  27. Lori Meehan

    3.5 I love Melissa Schroeder s historical romance and I was thrilled when I found out she was writing a paranormal one I enjoyed this book Nico and Cordelia had great chemistry I like ll the other characters in this book and I can t wit to read Malik and Diana s book There is so many possible stories in the other characters I can t wait.

  28. Becki

    I was hesitant to read this book because I don t like historical romances and I don t like vampire books However, because this is Melissa Schroeder, I decided to give it a try.Boy am I glad I did I was sucked right in to the story within the first couple of pages I m looking forward to the next story in this series.

    This was an interesting blend of historical romance and vampire society I enjoyed how the author wove vampires into London society and how the hierarchy for vampire society did not necessarily line up with human society I would read from this author.
