Publisher: Mystical Press
CAILIN MAC DOUGAL has lived a dangerous life being the adopted daughter of vampire Broderick “Rick” MacDougal, so she had no choice but to learn to fight in order to protect herself. However, such behavior is hardly desirable in a dutiful wife who’s supposed to embroider and run a household. This aggressive side of her behavior should be easy enough to hide from her betrothed…shouldn’t it?
After being away at fencing school for seven years, JAMES KNIGHTLY has returned as a master swordsman, ready to captain his own ship and finally wed his childhood sweetheart, Cailin MacDougal. What he finds waiting for him is a dagger-toting hellion for a bride, an immortal father-in-law, and an enemy bent on extracting revenge by threatening the family James holds most dear–the MacDougals.
BRODERICK MAC DOUGAL is lured away from his family with the promise of–at last–learning a way to protect those he loves from his clan enemy, Angus Campbell. Broderick knows he’s headed for a trap, but the bait is too tempting to resist…and he unravels the beginning of a prophecy that will lead to redemption for all vampires. The cost of such redemption, though, may be the very soul of the woman he would die for…his wife, Davina.
Reader Advisory: This story contains some explicit love scenes, described using graphic and direct language. This story also contains explicit, nail-biting scenes of violence and sword fights.
Buy the Book
The Bonded By Blood Vampire ChroniclesThe Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles is a six-book paranormal fantasy series with strong romantic elements. Broderick “Rick” MacDougal never expected to find his soul mate, Davina Stewart, during his quest for revenge. Nor did he expect her immortal soul would be the price. Rick and Davina are two of three keys tied to a prophecy of redemption for all vampires. Clan enemy and the man he has sworn to destroy, Angus Campbell, is the fated third. If either Broderick or Angus die, their souls are destined for hell and Davina’s will be cast into oblivion. But the truth is more dire than any of them imagine. Davina’s soul does more than fulfill the prophecy. If the Vamsyrian King sacrifices her in an ancient ritual, he will end the prophecy and secure his immortality for all time.
Facts about Broderick MacDougal NOT in the Novels
1 Immortality, at first, was almost unbearable condition for Broderick in his early years after his transformation. There was a time he was testing his limits and didn’t care if he lived or died in the process. One of the trials he put himself through was abstinence from human blood, where he only fed from animals. The lack of intimacy with human life and memories proved to be worse than living with the guilt of killing for blood. It was this trial that forced Rick to bring The Hunger under control so he would not have to murder those from whom he fed. Most Vamsyrians kill their prey. Broderick is one of a handful of his kind who do not kill their victims, and he doesn’t know why…at least not yet.
