Nial orders Calum Garrett to get close to Hollywood producer Kate Lindenstream. Garrett reluctantly complies for he has held himself apart from humans for centuries. Kate doesn’t fall into Garrett’s arms, either. She already has someone for that. Roman Xerus – whom Kate knows as Adrian — and Garrett go way back to the sixteenth century Scottish highlands, but they parted bitterly two hundred years ago.
With Roman’s support, Kate battles Garrett in wills and business as he methodically forces himself into her life. However, on the closed-in movie set in the Californian desert, Garrett’s calm, orderly world crumbles for Garrett is drawn to Kate. He has begins to experience real, human feelings.
Kate doesn’t cooperate in the chess game Nial orchestrates, despite being unaware of the strategies swirling around her film set. Demanding and expecting only the best for her movie, Kate’s agenda forces Roman and Garrett to work together to protect her and keep the humans around her ignorant of the Pro Libertatus, the anonymous and all-powerful vampire group who nearly killed Nial, Sebastian and Winter, and shield Kate from the excesses of the League for Humanity. But could Roman really be with the Pro Libertatus?
There’s hidden intentions everywhere, and centuries of repressed feelings, along with at least two different groups that mean them harm. Then there’s the rumors that Kate has found the mythical Blood Stone, the key to unlocking vampire history and lifting their curse. Who is Kate, really? Because once Garrett begins to notice, things about Kate don’t quite add up, either…
Blood Stone is a bisexual MMF menage paranormal romance with lots of suspense. This book is book #2 in the Blood Stone series, and I recommend that it be read after the first novel. There is a lot of overlap between the characters in book #1 and this book. There are also several references to the events that happened in book #1.
Blood Stone is the story of Garrett, Kate, and Roman. Garrett and Roman are male vampires that shared a love affair centuries ago. Both have a hidden agenda as they approach Kate, a famous Hollywood director. Kate has a shadowy past of her own, and she falls for Roman (known to her as Adrian) only to find out that Garrett sets her on fire in more than one way. Garrett and Roman rekindle their sizzling love affair. The characters from the first novel Winter, Nial, and Sebastian are great secondary characters that lend depth to this novel. I loved all of the characters. I wanted Kate to have a little more spunk when she is confronted by her past.
The plot had so many twists and turns you had to hang on to the edge of your seat to keep up. This novel was a very lenghty novel which was fine because the story line was full of intrigue, suspense, and erotic romance. The lenght was just right so that the story wasn’t rushed and all details were fully explained. I kept being surprised by the unlikely alliances and enemies that creeped up from every corner. You never know who you can really trust and the betrayal comes from different sources each time. This was no quick, boring, easy read with predictable suspense elements. This was a wild ride that I was fully engaged in until the ending and even that had a twist that I wasn’t expecting. I can’t wait to read the next one.
