Only After Dark Series, Book One
Rating: 5 Cups
Joseph Markus has a good head for business yet possesses a hot temper, even for a vampire. He only wishes he did not have to suffer with guilt every day.
Katarina Renót decides to take a sabbatical with her good friend, Nina. She never expected to meet Joe, a complete enigma. In no time, her life quickly changes.
Joseph suffers with guilt. He lost the one true love of his life when she was killed and he was accused of her murder. For a while, he went into seclusion; now he has a band and owns the club, Graphica. Once he makes Kat’s acquaintance, he finds her unique. Even though Joe oozes sex appeal from head to toe, Kat finds him arrogant and manipulative. He rattles her buttons. Kat is a realist and does not believe in fairytales, but friend Nina, is quite the opposite and dreams of being involved with a vampire. Once Kat learns the truth surrounding Joe, she finds it more difficult to part from the man who has melted her heart. With someone out for revenge, Joe and Kat wonder if they will be able to have a future.
Love Bleeds is a stirring story that even made my heart melt quite a few times. Just reading about Joe gently pressing his fingers to Kat’s lips was like a soothing warmth that instantly grabbed me. The story of Kat and Joe is so sensual and full of love that the players practically leap off the pages. Maggie James does an incredible job in penning this delicious action-packed read. I love the dialogue and interaction between Kat and Joe, not to mention the way the characterization of Nina adds that special blending to the story. The engaging characters and extraordinary storyline left a lasting impression on this reader.
