Book Description:

Sometimes, love is conceived in the mind of a man long before it is ever realized.

1990, Cardiff, Wales.  Vampire prince, Sebastian Pearce, has waited six-hundred years for the right human mate. His own beloved mother was a mortal capable of carrying immortal offspring. While vampires no longer require live donors for sustenance, Mother Nature has played a cruel trick on them making breeders a rare commodity. As numbers in Sebastian’s Imperial House continue to dwindle, his virgin bride eludes him. That is, until he happens upon a young woman searching for information about a sacred vampire text, the Book of Descent. Sebastian’s desire for her is more potent than anything he’s felt for another woman, but Everleigh Marbut isn’t innocent. She’s an American with a mind of her own, and worst of all, she’s already carrying an immortal being. As Sebastian and Everleigh fight their attraction to each other, they don’t realize they’re being lured into a battle pitting medieval myth against the power of modern science to recreate life until it’s too late.

The destiny of his lineage, and the bond forged between them, now rests in their acceptance of each other as they are.

My review:

A very interesting read!

What I enjoyed the most about Ascent of Blood was the fresh and highly stimulating plot. Just when I was beginning to think I’d seen it all, I picked up this book and was thrown into another mind-blowing story line with a fire cracker for a heroine and a well, somewhat conflicted hero.

Sebastian, what can I say? I’m a sucker for vampires. Love them to bits. And he’s just adorable, charming and near exasperating all in one package (but I still like him though).

Everleigh, she’s my kind of heroin. She’s smart, independent, and witty.

The interaction between both main characters had me laughing out loud at times and others, well, I kind of had that awwww moment.

Ascent of Blood = Love it!

Can’t wait for the next one.
