Review @AuthorMFox - Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings by Many Fabulous Authors

Blood Courtesans Boxed Set: Awakenings

Goodreads blurb:  Indulge in a darkly decadent and sinfully sensual world.

A world where vampires are real, rich and hungry, a world where Blood Courtesans satisfy all their needs.

Come, let fangs slip into your throat and awaken you to a whole new life.

A boxed set of BRAND NEW stories in this popular series.

Warning: This isn't your momma's vampire romance. It's not Twilight or the Shade, either. It's Blood Courtesans: Luxury, fast cars, adventure, whirlwind romance and cold, hard fangs. Got blood?

REVEALED by Michelle Fox:  My target is a vampire with a name fit for a Greek God--Zopyros Persopoulos--and he looks the part too. He runs Datagenex and it's his DNA database that will reveal why my blood kills vampires. I just need to get him alone and not fall into that smoldering gaze of his that makes me feel like I'm on fire.

EXPOSED by Gwen Knight: Asher promises that he can help me bring justice to those responsible for my sister's murder. But in exchange, I need to become his courtesan.

COMPELLED by Rebecca Rivard: He's a vampire. She's a slayer. They can't fall in love, can they?

SACRIFICE by Kristen Strassel: Pierce ripped Olivia out of the arms of the coven's biggest enemy. To earn his trust, the newly-turned vampire must serve as his blood courtesan.

ETERNITY by Tami Lund: I was a Blood Courtesans, until my vampire ended our contract and swore to stay away from me forever more. Now I'm in trouble and he's the only one who can help, but will he come? 

CONDEMNED by Julia Mills: It's now or never. My brother is sentenced to die for a crime he didn't commit. His only hope is an attorney who's also a vampire, but his price is nonnegotiable -my body and my blood. This is about survival, not love or happily ever after - or is it? 

CONCEALED by Rosalie Redd: I'm a new blood courtesan and my first client is a vampire other courtesans avoid. Although Gavin Morris sends a chill down my spine, my shivers aren't from fear...

RELIC  by TL Reeve I never thought I would need a vampire. But, after my mom steals a priceless artifact from the New Orleans Coven, I become a pawn in their dirty game. In order to survive, I have to do the one thing I promised myself I'd never do.

EMBOLDENED by Ever Coming: Jasper came roaring into my life almost two decades ago when he rescued me from certain death. Now it's my turn to save the sexy vampire. Only problem is, he doesn't want my help.

UNDONE by Skye Jones: I hate rich people and vampires, so when I meet a drop dead handsome man that is both, I want to despise him. But I need his help and put my principals to one side. What starts out as a way of securing my freedom becomes so much more, and soon I'm in too deep mind, body, and soul.

REFRAIN by Susan Griscom: My first Blood Courtesan client turns out to be the man of my dreams, the sexy-as-sin vampire rock star I've lusted after since I was a teen, but he wants nothing to do with me or what I have to offer, but making him accept me may be the only way for me to stay alive.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!  I have already bought my own copy too!

This boxed set contains 11 stories surrounding vampires and their courtesans whether they are human or vampire.  I am still working on reading the set but I have read the first 6 stories at this point.  I have yet to read a story I didn’t like, and really I have loved all but one so far because it was a bit darker and grittier involving manipulation and rape of body and mind.  Awesome story, but it would have been 4 Unicorns.  My top 3 stories so far are Revealed, Exposed, and Compelled.  I was pulled into those stories from the beginning, and I couldn’t stop until I knew what happened.

Each story is unique and while the world is similar, you will notice differences as you read.  Boxed sets are a great way to read many authors, and you may find an author you love!  I also really love that it is an HEA for each story at least in my opinion where they find their mates.  I don’t want to give away details of the stories, but you can read the blurb for a little about each story.

I highly recommend this set to any vamp lovers who want unique stories from many awesome authors!  I’m off to read the Concealed, and who knows my top 3 stories may change by the time I have finished!

Interested in reading???
