Review: A FIRE IN THE BLOOD by Amanda Ashley


A FIRE IN THE BLOOD by Amanda Ashley

Publication Date: April 25, 2017

Genre: Paranormal Romance


IMG_7870“I see a man. He is old. Very old. He will come into your life in a moment of danger. He will watch over you and protect you.” The gypsy’s hand gripped Tessa’s tighter. “He will bring you death,” she whispered, her voice like the rustle of dry leaves. “And life.”

Ten years later, when Andrei Dinescu saves Tessa from a vicious attacker, she has no idea that the handsome stranger the gypsy fortune teller predicted is not a hunter but a seven-hundred-year-old vampire. Darkly powerful, unbelievably compelling, he is obviously pursuing Tessa, but is it her love he’s after or her blood?


3.5 stars Donna

This was a fun light romp through a dangerous vampire world. Tessa handled her new reality quite easily, but with the handsome vampire Andrea…how could you not. That being said, she sometimes took the new information too easily. The love and romance are there, but light on the sexual aspects. Perfect for those who like their romances less explicit. A fun quick read.

For centuries, Mara has been a Vampire: mysterious, alluring and fiercely independent. Although she has been pursued throughout her life – by Vampire and mortal alike – she has never allowed love to claim her. But when she discovers she’s pregnant, Mara finds herself torn between two unforgettable men…Kyle Bowden is the mortal father of her unborn child. A gorgeous, golden-haired artist full of passion and life, Kyle was ready to give his soul to Mara-until he learned her terrible secret. Logan Blackwood is the Vampire she created 900 years ago. Now a Hollywood millionaire with all the dark seductive power of his kind, Logan still longs for the woman who turned him. With time running out, and her dark gift fading, Mara must decide what is best for the miraculous new life growing inside of her. But first she must embrace the feelings in her heart-and choose one lover…for all eternity.


Great story! Mara, the heroine, is an ancient vampire whose last relationship with a human ended badly when he found out she was a vampire. She is nursing a broken heart when she runs into an old flame Logan Blackwood, a vampire she turned several hundred years ago and who has been in love with her since he was turned. I loved Logan! Mara is losing her vampire power and turning human. With all the different factions after her she turns to Logan for protection. I was annoyed when Kyle came back into the picture, and Mara had to choose between the two men, but I was happy with the ending. There are lots of surprises and complications in the story and it has a great plot with lots of action, danger, and steamy romance. Amanda Ashley writes great paranormal romance and I recommend this book and the series for vampire lovers.
