Product Description

Enter a world of blood-starved mastyr vampires and the rare women who can satisfy their deepest needs… How can he resist his blood rose… Gerrod, mastyr vampire of the Merhaine Realm, never thought to have his blood-needs satisfied by a mere human. But Abigail is no ordinary woman. She stuns him with her telepathy as well as the richness of her blood. However, her human DNA makes her an unacceptable mate. Yet how can Gerrod turn her away when she alone has satisfied his blood-starvation for the first time in a hundred-and-fifty-years? Will she fall to temptation and give herself to a vampire… When the dreaded enemy of all realm-folk, the Invictus, attacks at a fae wedding, Abigail’s simple human life gets turned upside down. She doesn’t know if she has the courage to pursue a path that means giving herself body and soul to a mastyr vampire. Will she return to her normal existence in Flagstaff, Arizona? Or will she embrace the dark…

About the Author

I confess I've had a love affaire with vampires for several years now, especially warrior vampires, the kind found in the books of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian and JR Ward. Though I've been published in Regency Romance under the pseudonym Valerie King--and yes one of my Regency Novellas features a vampire--one day I woke up knowing I had to create my own contemporary world of the warrior vampire. For some mystical, magical reason, early in the process, my vampires appeared with enormous beautiful wings and it has been the most amazing experience to include flight in my novels, in both battle scenes and scenes involving spectacle. For more information about my unique take on the vampire mythos, check out my website at carisroane.com and my book release video on YouTube by putting in the search phrase, Caris Roane Ascension. With every hope you'll enjoy reading my books set in the World of Ascension, All my best, Caris Roane

4.5 STARS

The first book in The Blood Rose Rose series is a unique and captivating tale of the supernatural.

Starving for blood, mastyr vampire Gerrod of the Merhaine Realm never thought a mere human could be his mate, much less satisfy his blood needs. Abigail is a human who wants to open a bakery in the realm and she finds her life turned upside down when the enemies of the realm-folk attack a fae wedding.

This well written and intriguing book is full of action and romance with compelling characters that capture the imagination of the reader. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot is engaging and brings to life a unique and interesting paranormal world with vampires, fae, shapeshifters, trolls, and more interacting in different realms all centered around the humans.

The author paints a vivid picture of the lives of these characters and their worlds with great detail and clarity making the reader feel as if they are part of the story. The reader can actually feel the heat as the attraction between Gerrod and Abigail build throughout the story.

The author has brought to life, unique and special beings with lots of potential in this very enchanting world and I love the name given to those beings, “Blood Roses.” I am looking forward to going on another journey in this paranormal world.

I loved this book. It is well writen and the characters just draw you in. After reading this story in set of few paranormal romances I immediately went out and brought the rest of the series. I really can't wait to read the rest.

HASH(0xa61b645c) out of 5 stars Some good scenes, but I didn't really connect to the romance July 13 2012
By Jen (Red Hot Books) - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Gerrod is a centuries-old mastyr vampire who puts the welfare of his people before his own. His responsibilities weigh heavy on him, but being a leader is who and what he is. In the past year, he has found himself drawn to Abigail, a human woman who is opening a bakery in the parallel realm in which he lives. He knows that attraction can lead nowhere, so he has never acknowledged his feelings. Until now.

At the wedding of mutual friends, Gerrod and Abigail touch for the first time, setting off a profound physical reaction. They can't seem to help themselves as they give in to a kiss. It's at that moment, the Invictus (bad guys) attack.

Abigail never saw past Gerrod's surly exterior until she watched him throw himself into battle. And then afterwards, when she saw his hunger and exhaustion, she wanted nothing more than to care for him... and to be the one to feed him. From this point on, the two of them realize how much they want one another, and struggle to figure out how and if they can fit into each other's lives.

This novella series is a spinoff from the Guardians of Ascension books. There is enough information here to fill me in on the basics as a new reader. The romance happened rather quickly, though it did help to know that Gerrod and Abigail knew each other for a while, at least, before the story began. There were some good moments between the two of them, like the scene where Abigail gives Gerrod a bath, but other than the respect and appreciation she held for him, I didn't really feel the emotion between them. A connection, yes, but love? Not really.

I had a little trouble with the writing from time to time. It felt like the grammar or the wording wasn't quite right in some places. Granted, I was reading an advanced copy and corrections could be made before a finished copy is released. But a few times, I had to re-read sentences that were "off" and it drew me out of the story.

It was... ok. I liked Gerrod and I enjoyed watching his heart lighten. I didn't really have strong feelings invested in the love story, though.

2.5 Stars ~ Embrace the Dark (The Blood Rose #1)
by Caris Roane

I got this book as part of the Dark and Dangerous, Six-in-One Hot Paranormal Romances Boxed Set.

Embrace the Dark is book one in Caris Roane The Blood Rose series. Earth has opened up to many Realms and Abigail has come to Merhaine to open a bakery. With her stepping foot into another Realm and meeting a mastyr vampire has caused her body to change. Gerrod is leader of Merhaine and has been obsessing over Abigial, but keeping his distance for over a year; after all she is only human and can never fulfill his needs. We get a little action, lots of detail on the world and creatures, and a little sex (not so spicy).

Gerrod, mastyr vampire of the Merhaine Realm was an interesting vampire. Always putting his people first before his needs. He never takes time for himself and Abigail has observed this and feels a need to comfort and make him smile.

Abigail is human a blood rose; which means she produces more blood then her body needs, can eventually turn into a vampire (if she choose to bond with a mastyr), and gets some extra cool gifts. At the time she meets Gerrod she has no idea what she is, but soon leaners why her body is changing.

Will they both fall to temptation and find contentment in each other…

This is my first time reading Caris Roane and I found Embrace the Dark to be an interesting concept. The idea and plot are not bad, but the book was poorly written with some awkward sentences and poor editing in areas. It needed to be longer to get a better feel for the world, supernatural creatures and the battle they are facing. What the author tried to do was paint a vivid picture of the lives of these characters and their worlds with great detail and clarity, but there was just too much story here for the limited amount of words! With all that detail in the begging it's a little slow going. I also never felt the connection/love between the leads Abigail and Gerrod. It was lacking the hot and spicy feel to me.

What would you do if you were a three hundred year old Mastyr Vampire and the woman who made your every muscle harden and your heart pound was the one women you couldn't want. Gerrod is that Mastyr Vampire and he is drawn to Abigail with a vibration and yearning that should not be happening after all Abigail is human and would never be accepted in his world. War is upon them and the Invictus have arrived and it is up to Gerrod and his Guards to protect their lands. What will come of this war and what is the reason for the connection to Abigail. All will be revealed once you have read Embrace the Dark by Caris Roane
