Synopsis

There are three people in this affair – and two of them aren’t human…

A hidden paranormal London lies beneath our own. Escape into the supernatural world of the Blood Lifers – where vampires are both predator and prey.

1960s London. Light is a rebel Rocker Blood Lifer with a photographic memory. And a Triton motorbike. Since Victorian times he’s hidden in the shadows. Both predator and prey. His venom is deadly. He feeds on blood. Human, of course. But when he discovers his ruthless family’s horrifying secret experiments, he questions whether he should be slaying or saving the humans he’s always feared.

Ruby is a sexy but savage Elizabethan Blood Lifer. She burns with a destructive love for Light. But he’s keeping something from her. Something that breaks every rule in Blood Life. When she discovers the truth, things take a terrifying turn.

Kathy is a seductive singer. But she’s also human. Light knows his passionate love for her is reckless but he’s enchanted. Yet such a romance is forbidden. When the two worlds collide, it could mean the end. For both species.

What dark revelations will Light reveal at the heart of the experiments? Will he be able to stop them in time? The consequences of failure are unimaginable. Unless Light plays the part of hero, he risks losing everything. Including the two women he loves.

A rebel, a red-haired devil and a Moon Girl battle to save the world – or tear it apart.

Enjoy the excerpt

CHARACTER PROFILES:

A hidden paranormal London lies beneath our own…

1960s London

Light is a rebel Rocker Blood Lifer with a photographic memory. And a Triton motorbike. He’s a Blood Lifer James Dean: rough leather motorcycle jacket, studded and faded, decorated with a worn gold Ace of Spades, collar firmly turned up, over a black t-shirt, jeans and tall motorcycle boots, topped by a light brown pompadour, tamed with Brylcreem. He tried to conforming once: didn’t fit.

When and where elected into Blood Life? Victorian London.

Human name? Thomas Blickle

Favourite music?  The Stones, Johnny Kidd and the Pirates, Marty Wilde, Eddie Cochrane, Chuck Berry, The Animals, Them and Billy Fury and THE FOUR JAYS…Light loves his rock ‘n’ roll.

Favourite motorbike? Triton. ‘A sodding scarlet slash of beauty. 650cc Triumph twin-cylinder engine in a Norton ‘slimline’ Featherbed frame – and my bloody god.’

Favourite possession? His leather jacket. For the last 150 years, Light has always owned a ‘blinding coat’.

Favourite phrase? ‘Bollocks vampire myth…’

Who is Ruby? A sexy but savage Elizabethan Blood Lifer in crimson silk. She burns with a destructive love for Light. But he’s keeping something from her. Something that breaks every rule in Blood Life. When she discovers the truth, things take a terrifying turn. ‘Ruby. My red-haired devil, Author, muse, liberator, guide: my gorgeous nightmare.’

Who is Kathy? A seductive singer, with blue eyes and long black curls. But she’s also human. Light knows his passionate love for her is reckless but he’s enchanted. Yet such a romance is forbidden. When the two worlds collide, it could mean the end. For both species.

‘You looked like some little Moon Girl, shimmering in silver: silver-spangled trousers, plastic biker jacket, with poppers and white ankle-length boots. I would’ve blasted into space with you in a bleeding heartbeat… ’

    thanks for the chance

  2. rsbrandt44 says:

    The Shadows don’t rate as one of his aavorite bands?

    • fuonlyknew says:

      I guess not!

    • rosemaryajohns says:

      Light has a LONG list of bands he loves – so do I! If I listed them all…I’m a true music fanatic so it would probably take a whole book in itself… by 1968 The Stones would probably be Light’s favourite..!

  3. rosemaryajohns says:

    Laura – thanks for the post!

  4. Mary Preston says:

    An interesting synopsis & cover.

    • rosemaryajohns says:

      Thanks – cover design is by the award winning JD Smith – she really got both the book and me, so I was lucky to have her! The cover for the next book in the series, which is released on the 1st November and is on pre-order now – Blood Shackles – is stunning. http://getbook.at/BloodShackles

  5. Ally Swanson says:

    This book sounds like an interesting and intriguing read. Looking forward to checking out this book.

  6. In London, 60’s rocker, is everything I love. I’m excited to read this book.

  7. Freya D says:

    This looks like a really fun read. Thank you for sharing!

    • rosemaryajohns says:

      I write what I love to read – and what I wish I could find to read…hope you enjoy it!

  8. Sounds like a great paranormal romance, thanks for sharing. Very cool cover.

    • rosemaryajohns says:

      The cover designer is JD Smith – very talented. She understood the arc for the entire series – and me!

  9. Rita Wray says:

    I like the synopsis.

    • rosemaryajohns says:

      I think I was lucky with both the synopsis and cover – they get to the heart of the story and grip. Hope you’re having a good day!

  10. Anne says:

    This novel sounds intriguing and unique. What a great feature and giveaway.

    • rosemaryajohns says:

      Two reviews out today call Blood Dragons ‘unique’ – I think that’s great – Light’s a rebel – an individual – after all! Hope you enjoy the book and have a great evening!

  11. Stephanie says:

    Certainly sounds like an unusual vampire story.

    • rosemaryajohns says:

      I’ve just read one review on Amazon that says ‘If Interview With a Vampire and A Clockwork Orange eloped and had a book baby- this would be it’… Rebel Fantasy writes fantasy for rebels – so Blood Dragons is something different – and I hope you enjoy it!

  12. dianne casey says:

    The book sounds intriguing. Paranormal London sounds like a great read. Looking forward to reading.
