Product Description

When duty forces a shaman to stop a vampire from her revenge, love doesn’t just burn... it bites.

For two hundred years, Niki DeVeraux has been tracking the monster who murdered her family and made her a vampire. She finally catches up to him in a small Arizona town, only to face more than she bargained for. Amid an imperious vampire King, a shaky truce between the local clan and shifter pack, and a too-sexy sheriff who makes her remember she’s still a woman, Niki’s single-minded purpose is threatened for the first time since her turning.

Between his duties as Keeper of the peace for the Magic Council and heir to his tribe’s shamanistic magic, Sheriff Shane Spencer’s job is to protect humanity and stop the friction between the local Arcaine races before it turns into an all out blood war. To make matters worse, there’s an irresistible rouge vampire in town enflaming his senses.

When wolves start turning up dead, the tension between the paranormal races grows and suspicion falls on Niki. Shane knows she’s not to blame, and it has nothing to do with the primal urges she stirs within him. Working together, they must find a way to stop the hostilities from going over the edge. Trouble is, the desires raging between Niki and Shane might prove more dangerous than the surrounding threats.

About the Author

One of those rare breeds, Amber Kallyn is an Arizona native who can trace her family's history through six generations in the state. She lives with her four very active children. Included in the menagerie are four cats (though there's always room for more) and a snake. Amber loves the paranormal, from dragons to werewolves to vampires. She's currently at work on her next book, probably running around the house acting out a fight scene with her collection of swords and daggers. Or maybe, wishing she had claws to practice the other fight scenes. A voracious lover of the written word, Amber found at an early age that she could read fast. Really fast. She devours novels by the day, novellas by the hour, and is always looking to get her hands on more. Visit me at Twitter: Facebook: Sign up for my occasional newsletter for fun & freebies:

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Novella Keeps You Engaged! April 13 2012
By Sapphyria - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
***4 1/2 Stars***

Niki is on the hunt for her sire, Thomas; the same man who killed her family and turned her into a vampire. Knowing full well that the Council will destroy her for killing her maker, it's something she needs to do so that the spirits of her slain family members will finally be at peace. She finally tracks him to a town in Arizona where it seems he's creating newbie vampires--in someone else's jurisdiction. In her quest for revenge her heart betrays her and she finds herself in the arms of Shane, the local sheriff that also happens to be a shaman and Keeper of the peace. When tension between the Leader of the Werewolves and the King of the Vampires in this sleepy little town escalates both Niki and Shane suspect that Thomas is at the heart of it.

This is a well written novella. There's enough back story to understand Niki and her desire to end the life of her sire for good. We also get a good glimpse into the complexities that Shane faces, being the second born, but the one to receive favor from The Fates; an honor usually bestowed upon the first born of the chosen family line. The action and adventure kept me engaged and it was tastefully written. The sexual tension that crops up between Shane and Niki, of course,develops at the most inopportune time since they both need clear heads to stop Thomas and whatever dastardly plan he trying to set into motion.

I found everything about the book to flow well and be consistent. The connection between Niki and Shane didn't seem fake and their interactions, on all levels, were believable. I enjoyed this novella and am glad to have had the chance to read it.

Please Note: Book contains some adult language/themes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved It! April 13 2012
By Crystal - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This novel only took me a few hours to read, but it was time well spent. Niki is the perfect heroine. She is strong, brave, and sexy. She doesn't let anyone tell her what to do, and it seems she won't let anyone distract her from her need for revenge... until Shane. Shane is the strong, silent type, but he also finds himself drawn to Niki. He sees her as more than just a vampire, he sees the woman deep inside who longs for someone to share her lonely existence with.

Wonderfully written and with a fascinating plot, Bloodstorm will keep you wanting more. I am glad to have stumbled upon this gem and plan to read more written by this author.

1.0 out of 5 stars Meh Feb. 24 2013
By Not Telling - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was written like a teenager's work. It was cliche, boring, and lame. There was too much going on, the characters weren't likeable, and it wasn't suspenseful in the least. Pass on this.

5.0 out of 5 stars He's a dish! Aug. 26 2012
By Barbarina - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A captivating style of writing creates captivating characters. Shane is strong and sexy and exudes that extra that says the leading man is a dish. Fortunately for him his 'destiny' has all the right ingredients to match and so their romance draws us in. We are also exposed to some other interesting characters and we hope fervently that they will have a story to tell also at a later date. Now this makes good reading, we are hoping for another book before we even finish this one.
