Enter a world of immortal danger and desire—and discover an incredible fate borne of blood.

Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .

Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.

 
 Blood Guard by Megan Erickson (Mission, #1)

Blood Guard (Mission, #1)Tendra grew up learning to take care of herself, to be strong and alert. Her mother made sure she was an independent woman, but her death left Tendra mourning her loss. When she is abducted by a mysterious, and powerful man who manages to dodge her every self-defense tactic, she learns the unbelievable. According to Athan, she is the product of ten generations of births empowered by the Gregorie vampiric blood and she is destined to be their queen. Yep, vampires…and he has evidence.

All Athan has trained for his entire life was to bring Tendra to the future king to fulfill a prophecy of power and peace, a peace that will save humanity from the vampiric world. Just deliver the goods safely and step away, letting his brother take his future bride and gain the powers their union will bring.

Just Step Away….easier said than done when the fiery woman has not only gotten on his nerves, but under his skin and keeping his hands off her is impossible because she is everything he never knew he was searching for. Can Athan get her to Gregorie lands safely or will their enemies do all they can to stop them? Athan was bred and trained to be a warrior, but this human female is rapidly defeating his resolve to keep his hands of her and his heart locked away. Will his efforts to keep her safe from both his lust and rival clans be in vain? Can his heart give up the one thing he never thought he would have?

BLOOD GUARD by Megan Erickson is passionate, from the battles waged to the attraction between two beings whose destinies are carved in the prophecy that must be fulfilled. As the Passion-O-Meter rises, Ms. Erickson refrains from flowery scenes and gives us all the raw and earthy passion two souls fighting for their lives can feel. Can you say, HOT…and I repeat, Earthy? Strong characters, strong passions and strong scenes all make for a fabulously entertaining read!

I received an ARC edition from Loveswept in exchange for my honest review.
