    Warning: Expect tons of hot, kinky sex. If that’s not what

    Warning: Expect tons of hot, kinky sex. If that’s not what you’re looking for don’t pick up the book. It’s also book five in a series. I didn’t realize that when I started reading. I think had I known it would have clarified the roles of vampires and dragon shifters much sooner than I realized. It’s a historical, paranormal romance.

    Okay, I’m going to be extremely honest. If you’re looking for a book filled with sex, Blood Secret can give that to you. The first half of the book is strong erotica. The second half blends erotica with a paranormal story. That said, I think it’s clear that the strong points of this book involve sex scenes, not an actual story line. That is problematic in some ways, but if you go into this book not expecting a thorough, deep story line, you should be fine.

    Since their father’s death, Lady Lucy Drake’s brothe

    Since their father’s death, Lady Lucy Drake’s brother, the new Earl of Wrenshire, seems determined to leave this family in ruin. When Lucy learns that her brother’s gambling has gotten himself into debt to the notorious rake, the Duke of Greystone, she does the only this she can to save her younger sister for being married off to a lecherous, old man, she goes to the Duke and offers her innocence to the Duke in exchange for her brother’s debts. But when she learns that the debts are much larger than her brother indicated and the Duke wants more than just her innocence in exchange for the small fortune owed to him, he wants Lucy to be his sexual plaything for two weeks. She has no choice. She can’t turn him down. The question is—is her heart pounding in dread over her downfall or with excitement over the gorgeous and seductive Duke.

    Sinjin knows that Lucy’s family has been holding his nephew hostage for the last year. He has been trying to ruin her brother, amounting his debts to force the Earl to return the boy to his family. When Lucy shows up at his door, the proposition of seducing the information from the beautiful Lucy is a much more enjoyable way to get the information he needs. Although Sinjin is aware that Lucy is a dragon-shifter, she is not aware that he is a vampire and a dragon slayer. It is his duty to slay Lucy and her family after he retrieves his nephew, a small fact that he is planning to hide from her until he has finished with her.

    But Sinjin never anticipated Lucy’s kind heart and once she learns of the hurt that her family has put Sinjin through, she will do everything to help him retrieve the boy and bring him home where he belongs. Can Lucy’s kindness and gentleness teach Sinjin that not all dragons and evil and need to die? Will the dragon-slayer become her protector and if he tries, will they all be sentenced to die for betraying the Slayers’ Code?

    I have read a few erotica stories where the “plot” was just a jumble of words between sexual scenes. And YES there are many, many steamy scenes here, but in addition the characters were wonderful, the story was well written and absorbing, and I couldn’t wait to see how the story ended.

    There was a natural development of the affections and mutual respect of the main characters and there were several antagonists that kept you guessing the mysteries in the plot.

    Unless you truly have an issue with the more erotic fiction, I would definitely recommend this story to you. I enjoyed watching the developing relationship between Sinjin and Lucy and I was so sorry to get to the end of their story.

    Good Read, but not her best.

    First off I LOVE Sharon Page, and this was defiantly worth reading for her fans and new readers. But having bought and read her other blood series books I have to say it's my least favorite. I can't put my finger on why but there was just something lacking in this compared to her other blood series books. I'm glad I read it and did enjoy the development of the relationship in the story.
