In the midst of supernatural chaos, worlds and hearts collide.

Celia: Having never known my parents, I’ve always felt like an orphan. All I want is a normal life. But after I’m attacked in my bedroom by one vampire—and rescued by another—it’s about time to give up on “normal” once and for all. Idris, the second in command of the Gregorie vampire clan, has come to my aid, but his motives for saving me are unclear. And what surprises me most is my attraction to his heated gaze. . . .

Idris: Terror. Curiosity. Arousal. These are the natural impulses of a human female, not the spawn of the ruthless Valarian king. Is it possible that Celia is unaware of her bloodline—and the power coursing through her veins? As the daughter of my archenemy, she was supposed to be my ransom. But how quickly the heat of desire changes everything. Now the family Celia has always craved is trying to kill her, and it’s up to me to save her again—when all I really want to do is make her mine.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from 3.5 stars-engaging, impassioned but predictable 3.5 stars--BLOOD VEIL is the second instalment in Megan Erickson’s contemporary, adult MISSION paranormal, romance series. This is ER nurse Celia Valerie, and vampire Idris’s story line. BLOOD VEIL can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary but I recommend reading the series in order for backstory and cohesion. Told from dual first person perspectives (Idris and Celia) BLOOD VEIL finds Idris, second in command of the Gregorie vampire clan on a mission to locate and abduct the mysterious Celia Valerie-the spawn of their enemy, the Valarian king, and a woman completely unaware of her vampire heritage. When a Quellen (assassin for hire) targets Celia late at night Idris knows it is time to reveal the truth to our story line heroine. What ensues is the growing relationship between Idris and Celia, and the potential fall-out as Celia’s life hangs in the balance when Idris runs afoul of his brother’s orders. Idris is lost; groomed to be the leader of the Gregorie vampire clan, Idris would discover that everything he knew about his existence was a fabricated lie by the father he once loved and adored (Blood Guard #1). Now that his brother Athan was in charge Idris felt a disconnection; a sense of loneliness where it concerned the vampire lifestyle but a man, angry and betrayed, determined to seek vengeance for sins of the past. Meeting Celia Valeria, a woman who knows nothing about the who, how and why of her vampire DNA, finds our hero ready to sacrifice himself for the woman he loves. The relationship between Idris and Celia is one of immediate attraction. As Idris’ captive, Celia believes she has developed ‘Stockholm Syndrome’ but her willingness to forfeit her life reveals a much deeper belief about the man with whom she is falling in love. A former child of the foster care system, Celia suffers with panic attacks, and nightmares that reveal the truth about her ‘unnatural’ existence. Idris will detour from the original mission, a detour that threatens Celia’s life, as well as his own. The $ex scenes are intimate and passionate without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text. We are reintroduced to Idris’ brother Athan, king of the Gregorie vampires, and his mate Tendra, as well as Athan’s best friend Zeb. Celia will discover a half-sister whose earlier years proved to be better than hers, and a father who was hoping to protect his progeny and spawn. The world building continues to reveal the history between the warring clans as the Gregorie vampires are pulled into a conflict that began with the betrayal of the man once in charge. BLOOD VEIL is a story of family, friendship, vengeance and love. The premise is engaging, fast paced and intriguing; the romance is dramatic and sensual; the characters are tragic, edgy and spirited. BLOOD VEIL is a predictable but impassioned story about vampires and the women they love.
