Blood Mate, a dark fairy tale...
Nicole has been happily married to big shot attorney, Dominic Rose for ten years, but soon after their anniversary he grows cold—as if she doesn’t exist. Meanwhile, another man has been pursuing her far too intently for comfort.
August Corinth is a six-hundred-year-old vampire, cursed to kill and suffer the pain of his victims each night until he can find the one woman who can resist his thrall, his blood mate. Once he’s found her, there are no lines he won’t cross to claim the promised salvation even if it means taking away everything and everyone she loves.

After being fed on by August, she’d become unable to separate the feeding act from the sex act. “Nicole?” She forced her gaze from Dominic’s pants to his face. “What?” “Do you

While the bond was a leash that forced August to protect her in the end, it didn’t mean he couldn’t and wouldn’t make mistakes. He’d already done things to her that most people would consider quite bad. Ignoring those things made her feel as if she were excusing the behavior of an abusive boyfriend. Dominic may be a new vampire, but he was also the man who’d

Her eyes widened as he approached. “August? W-what did you do?” Was it wrong to enjoy her discomfort? “What do you mean what did I do? I took a walk.” There must be blood on his mouth or on his chest. And of course she would think it was human blood. Of course she’d think he would cross that line in a
