Yes, the time has finally arrived when Blood Roses, the second installment in the fabulous Blackthorn series created by the genius that is Lindsay. J. Pryor, releases. I have to admit to a definite dose of excitement here and am currently waiting (impatiently) for the postman to deliver my pre-ordered copy. He'd better pull his finger out or there will be blood (oops, already getting carried away by the *bloody* excitement of it all).

The Blackthorn series is NOT for the faint hearted. It is dark. It is twisted. It doesn't take the easy options. But... it is also a series of books you will find impossible to put down, with characters that will stay with you forever. Don't believe me? Think I'm exagerating? Well consider this - in 2010 a certain lady called Lindsay. J. Pryor entered a competition called New Voices, which was run by Mills & Boon. She entered it for their Paranormal line with an entry called Blood Roses. I entered that same competition. I remember reading Lindsay's submitted chapter. When I failed to final, I didn't care - Blood Roses did make it into the final four and I didn't have to think twice about casting my vote. Alas, it didn't win and now I am so glad it didn't. Everyone knows my love for Mills & Boon is infinite, but the Blackthorn series deserves a showcasing of its own. I NEVER forgot the Blood Roses chapters Lindsay submitted. And now I can finally read it in its entirety - and so can you. Read it. Please. I promise you won't regret it.

"She was supposed to kill vampires, not save them. Those were the rules. That was the lore." A rare and powerful witch whose blood is lethal to vampires, Leila has always viewed her serryn abilities as a curse. After seeing her mother slaughtered as a child, Leila longs for a safe, quiet life. That wish is shattered by Caleb Dehain - a vampire with a dark past and a darker heart. The most feared serryn hunter of his generation, Caleb now needs the help of one of the witches he despises to save his dying brother. A serryn who has no reason to help him. Except that he has her sister. Caleb and Leila are each other's worst nightmare- but the slow-burning spark of attraction between them is undeniable. Will Leila's blood be his damnation? Or could her kiss be his salvation?
