I was very excited to pick up the second book in this series. Blood Of The Rose is full of romance, suspense and Tudor scandal. Kate Pearce does a good job of mixing historical fiction with paranormal romance. The story picks up a year later with the Druids continuing to protect King Henry VIII from the threat of vampires. Rosalind and Rhys have returned to court. Once again they must call a truce with enemies Christopher and Elias in order to keep the infamous Anne Boleyn from turning the king into a vampire and taking over England. The first book left Rosalind and Christopher's relationship up in the air. I was happy that their romance continued despite the dangers of being on opposite sides. The harder they tried to stay away from each other, the more their feelings seemed to pull them together. The relationship remained rocky thorough the story, but I was very pleased with the way the ending was handled. The introduction of the Boleyn family kept me in suspense. From history, I knew what would happen, but I was anxious to see how the story would twist to include them. Anne was always thought to be very ambitious and into dark magic, so making her a vampire was a stroke of genius. I love this series and can't wait to see what happens in the next book.

In 1530 Rosalind Llewellyn is part of a Druid family of royal loyalists protecting King Henry VIII from the vampire threat. Her actions on their last mission to kill a rogue vampire led to her engagement to Druid slayer Lord Christopher Ellis (see Kiss of the Rose) over the ire of her companion Rhys Williams and others in her clan. She planned to avoid the court where she almost died and to stay away from her betrothed as she has succeeded for a year, but is called back as a new more seditious threat to the monarch has arisen. Anne Boleyn has bewitched King Henry and shockingly Christopher too. Rosalind fears that the two powerful men are enchanted by a vampiress. She must act to break the spell out of loyalty to her King and out of love to her man, but must proceed with caution as she has no proof whether the apparent next Queen is a social butterfly compared with the pious Spaniard she apparently will replace or Undead. The latest Tudor Vampire Chronicles is an engaging second chance at love historical thriller. The story line is driven by the heroine who is pulled into two directions by her Druid dallying beloved and her Druid family. However, the fresh entertainment comes from the real personage as the lead couple, her family and readers will wonder whether Anne and her brother George are vampires and if yes will she be staked or crowned.
