Meet the Author

Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her Masters Degree in Nonprofit Management.

Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker's box full of short-stories and books. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. The Blood Curse Series marks her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her first foray into the Dark Fantasy world of vampire fiction.

Tessa currently lives in the suburbs with her two children and "one very crazy cat" but hopes to someday move to the country where she can own horses and a German Shepherd.

Writing is her bliss.

    This is one -- one of those series that you never heard of befor

    This is one -- one of those series that you never heard of before. You read the first book and are impressed as you think "hey, not bad; not bad at all." You immediately read the second book because now you are pulled into the story and the characters and you want to know more. You finish the second book and think "damn, why haven't I ever heard of this before? That book was even better than the first book." You immediately start the third book because there is no way in hell that you can stop yourself -- especially since the third book will be about the character you find even more fascinating than all the other characters. You think to yourself, "yay, I can't wait to see what this 'bad ass' can do." Yep. Tessa Dawn (again, I never even heard of her before) is a GENIUS! This series is "over the top" good. Its interesting, has characters that are intriguing and really pretty damned scarry. Well, now that you've read this review, do yourself a favor and get these books. I dare you to stop at the first book!

    Darker than average "dark" paranormal!

    While the books in this series are darker than I am used to this author tells a very interesting story and it has kept my attention to date. She has a good mix of intrigue, danger, and hot (explicit) scenes to keep hardcore paranormal fans engaged. Would recommend for lovers of Feehans Dark series or J.R. Ward Brotherhood books.

    Bad and boring

    Have read many many books in this genre and I can only wonder if the people that gave this book a good review were reading the same book! Nothing close to the Dark Series at all! Slow and boring. Didn't even finish it.

    "My name is Napolean, but my enemies call me Justice."

    "My name is Napolean, but my enemies call me Justice."
    In this book, the moon turns blood red for Napolean, the King of the House of Jadon. He has weeks to convince his destiny that she was chosen by the Goddess Andromeda to be his mate and to bear his twin boys. If he fails to sacrifice one of his twin sons (the evil one) he will die a horrible death due to the blood curse.
    This is the best book in the series by far. Even though they are all amazing, this one blew me away. I felt so attached to the characters, and I was thrilled to discover this book is more of an ensemble. The characters from the previous books are involved and so much happens to all of them. The powerful Silivasi brothers once again unite and try to save their king. There is plenty of action, thrills, blood, horror, love and romance. The characters come to life and make you smile, laugh, and cry. There are several laugh out loud moments. Tessa is a very unique and talented writer.

    I started this series and could not put this WHOLE series down! Napolean is a powerhouse of a character that the attraction is immediate!

    Wow! Talk about a dark and emotional read! This installment is fang-tastic, action-packed, fast-paced and most definitely twisted! I am addicted to this series. It grabbed at page one and kept me until the end. If I could have read it in one setting I would have. So hard to put down.

    This is Napoleon Mondragon's story and how he came to know his destiny - Brooke. Napoleon is the sovereign lord of the house of Jadon. The very heartbeat of his kind. He has been through so much and waited for a long time for his Blood Moon to come along, when it does happen, he claims his destiny and opens up one hellacious can of worms in the process.

    He has a dark secret he has carried with him since he was a child. Will the Dark Ones be successful in their plans or will they be thwarted? I don't use spoilers, so all I can say is Oh My Gawd!

    This is a very well written, deeply emotional, and OH-SO-HOT installment. The world buliding is consistent and multi-layered, the twists and turnns are so incredible and unexpected. The ending blew me away. Tessa Dawn is an amazing and talented author.

    #GoGetYaSome Silivasi Brothers! They are loyal, lethal, and intriguing characters. I Love them all!

    YES! Tessa Dawn...

    Way to go! Read a review that said the reader was worn out, and what an apt description! LOVED it, completely submerged in the world of these stories and SO THRILLED the third story was yet again refreshingly different.

    Excellent read!

    Book 3 in the Blood Curse series, Blood Possession, follows

    Book 3 in the Blood Curse series, Blood Possession, follows the one and only Napoleon. Not only is he the leader of the House of Jadon (Light Vampires), he is the most powerful of all the vampires. But given that the House of Jaegar (Dark Vampires) want revenge on Napoleon after he single-handedly killed 88 of their evil brethren, they are intent of destroying the King. The death of the King would bring the House of Jadon crumbling. But after trying to manipulate Napoleon with the guilt of his father, they find that his destiny Brooke has been revealed. And the Dark Ones come up with a plan that not only put the King and Brooke in danger, but has devastating consequences on the entire House of Jadon.

    Dawn has once again written a story so intriguing, so passionate, and so emotionally draining. It truly is a wonder where she comes up with this stuff. Napoleon's story is full of so much guilt, triumph, and vulnerability. It is hard to not to be head over heels for him. Even though he is scary, very very scary, he is surprisingly warm and lovable. Nothing like Marquis who I also love, but the guy comes off as a block of ice.

    I loved the destiny that was chosen for Napoleon. Brooke was incredible. She had her head on straight and was brilliant. She is a master at her job even though she is the only woman. She is quite a fighter and has a dreadful past. I love how Napoleon handles this. The justice system didn't do anything and he took matters into his own hands without physically moving a finger. Man, that scene gave me chills. And of course the Dark Ones do everything their power to kill Napoleon, so Brooke is instantly a pawn. This brings forth some horrific events that were just so heart wrenching torturous.

    We get plenty from the other Brothers as well. Marquis is still he mean self, but he still saves his smiles for his wife and child. Nathaniel and Jocelyn are great as well. What I loved most was Nachari and Braden. They always make me laugh when they are together. Braden is once again testing the limits of his powers with his experiments. I love that we are beginning to see how Braden may be the only human turned vampire in existence, but the powers that he possesses may be bigger than any of the older vamps realize. I also love that we finally get to know Kagen. He is definitely more emotional compared to the other Brothers and that makes him scarier than the rest. I love that even though his profession isn't warrior or wizard, he is the Healer, he is still a force to be reckoned with.

    And even after all of that, Dawn still gave us more with Tiffany, Brooke's best friend. After her mind had been wiped, her memories come back in her dreams. She becomes desperate to save Brooke. The band of vampire hunters she hires though are less than honorable and definitely have their own agenda. But what was worse was when they attacked and who they attacked first. Bad move guys, very very bad moves. You don't know blood and gore until you have read this. Damn Nathaniel! He really is the "creative one".

    We are getting the beginnings of Nachari's story which I have been dying for. Nachari is perhaps my favorite of the group. He gives up everything to save Napoleon and Brooke. I am trying hard not to spoil here, but Nachari is definitely in for the battle of all battles. I loved the epilogue in the book. Honestly, I wish Dawn didn't put it in the book because I am too excited for more as it is. Wow, just wow.

    Why is it so hard to review a book you love so much? This is truly one of the best series I have come across. Dawn's imagination and no-holds-barred writing always leaves me breathless and in awe. All of her characters are so rich and just out of this world incredible. Goodness, why can't I have one of these guys?! Dawn's worldbuilding is so amazing and unique. I love that this is a vampire story that truly stands on its own. And I must say it for those that don't know, this is an adult book. It is very graphic and dark, so read with caution if this is not your sort of thing. It isn't for everybody. Nonetheless, start this series today. It is a must-read.

    Tessa's latest installment in the Blood curse series, Blood Poss

    Tessa's latest installment in the Blood curse series, Blood Possession, stays true to the winning formula that has made the series a hit, and delivers an even stronger storyline. While centered around the spellbinding story of Napolean and his destined, Brooke, Tessa weaves together engaging subplots that feature more of our favorite characters and converge in a suspenseful, surprising ending that will have you counting down the days until Blood Shadows arrives at your door. Truly a must read for fans of the Urban Fantasy and Paranormal genres alike.
