Bounty enforcer, Narah Adrienne, has been served her sentence in the form of three lashes to be meted by a corrupt Magistrate. She's unable to acquire her target as instructed, while strange health issues force Narah to seek help in the dangerous medical underground. They might have answers—for a price.

Vampire Turner Aeslin knows what ails her and is the only one who can save Narah by turning her into the vampire she is destined to be. Violent circumstances introduced them, and Narah knows that there are threats even worse than the criminals she pursues.

Can Aeslin find her before her sentence is delivered and the Hunter who stalks her? Will Narah be able to save herself from the inexplicable sensual pull she shares whenever Aeslin is near? Or is their tie more than shared vampire blood, but something more powerful than mere chemistry.

Vampire: Alpha Claim 2 (Brief-Bites Novelette)My Review
Vampire: Alpha Claim 2 by Tamara Rose Blodgett & Marata Eros

There is super-condensed power in the telling of this installment by the dynamic duo of Tamara Rose Blodgett and Marata Eros. Each “makes their signature mark” that digs a little deeper under one’s skin, and burrows a little deeper into the life and dangers faced by our heroine, Nahra.

Faced with her punishment for “over-kill” so to speak, Nahra waits for her lashings to be given by a magistrate who seems to take a little too much pleasure in the pain she will feel. Is there corruption in the justice system? Is the stress causing her blinding headaches or is something else about to go wrong in her life? Not only has Nahra become the prey for her latest target, but now one big, silver-eyed vampire turner seems to be turning up everywhere. Sure, he saved her once, but he had his own agenda and Nahra was powerless against his strength and magnetic pull. Is Nahra’s future about to plunge her into a world of blood and darkness? Will Aeslin be part of her new world? What could a vampire turner want with this hunter? The web becomes more tangled and the answers are just out of Nahra’s grasp, as her recurring headaches are getting more debilitating by the minute. The race against the clock and Nahra’s future or lack of is rounding another bend with no end in sight.

Rapid-fire pacing, more mysteries to solve, more intrigue and we are only at part 2 of this novelette series. Vampire: Claim 2 is a page turner from start to finish. Have a few minutes to get lost in Nahra’s dark world? The journey through is pure reading satisfaction, the return to reality, not so much.

Tamara Rose Blodgett and Marata Eros work off each other’s strengths and have, once again, brought home some darkly fabulous entertainment!
