Drawing Bloodlines .. book 1 (The Princeton Allegiant series) by Deborah Garland
He had to drink her blood . . .
Even though it meant revealing the monster behind his expensive suits. Now, Alexander must report his mistake to the allegiant commander. Elizabeth’s abduction will be swift unless he convinces the single mother he’s not a threat. He can be of use to her in the dark and in her bed. But can Alexander keep Elizabeth safe when he’s chosen to mate with a vampire from his troubled past?
Alexander is stunned at finding “her” she is a rare human, her blood is so sweet and special that vampires would do anything to taste it, even abduct the host to keep that sweet blood all for themselves. But he’s here to do a job, and he resists the temptation to “taste” the human in front of him.
But Alex has left it too long between feedings, and after a hundred years of being a vampire he should have known better. But surely a sip wouldn’t hurt …… But he gets caught drinking one of Elizabeth’s vials !!! Finding out where she lives is easy, intending to wipe her memory Alexander moves in ……but when Elizabeth opens her eyes, he doesn’t see fear or condemnation, he sees want and lust …..
The connection between Elizabeth and Alexander reminded me of another author (Lara Adrian, her midnight breed) and when he finds out his new commander wants him for her “mate” he’s left feeling torn (the feelings he has for Elizabeth or duty to his race?)
Alexander has a few things up his sleeve, he’s not going to go down without a fight. The magic he holds I had a few questions…….
(was he born with it? Or does he practise?) could this be the key to his being able to stay with Elizabeth ? To find out if I get my questions answered, you’ll need to
A few surprises along the way? (don’t want me to spoil it😉) but a really well written book. Looking forward to reading the next book.
