Overview

In Blood Vine, bites are an inconvenient bliss, exiled vampires are wasting away, and the fate of their kind depends on the perfect PR campaign. When public relations pro Zoey Porter arrives at an enchanting California winery, she discovers her sexy new client is the almost one-night stand she can't forget. After her husband's suicide, Zoey has vowed never to risk her heart again. But can she walk away from the intriguing winemaker a second time? Driven from Croatia by his ancient foes, vampire Andre Maras has finally made a blood-like wine to cure his fellow refugees. Now he needs Zoey's PR expertise to reach them. After his wife's death, Andre has a vow of his own-never to risk another painful blood bond. And one taste of the tempting Zoey would bind him to her eternally. His secrets stall her PR plans. Her jealousy is stoked by the blissed-out beauties leaving his bedroom. At every turn, he utterly fails to resist her. When she discovers he is a vampire, will she be lost to the golden-eyed Hunters, or lose herself to the emptiness in her heart, before she can help him save his kind?

Meet the Author

Amber Belldene grew up on the Florida panhandle, swimming with alligators, climbing oak trees and diving for scallops...when she could pull herself away from a book. As a child, she hid her Nancy Drew novels inside the church bulletin and read mysteries during sermons--an irony that is not lost on her when she preaches these days. Amber is an Episcopal Priest and student of religion. She believes stories are the best way to explore human truths. Some people think it is strange for a minister to write vampire romance, but it is perfectly natural to her, because the human desire for love is at the heart of every romance novel and God made people with that desire. She lives with her husband and two children in San Francisco.

    Blood Vine is lush, sexy, and beautiful. Oh my, the tortured her

    Blood Vine is lush, sexy, and beautiful. Oh my, the tortured hero, Andre, broke my heart and made me crazy at the same time. Since I refuse to post reviews with spoilers I'll only say this: BITE ME, ANDRE! Read the book to find out why. Here was a complex patriarch struggling to keep not only his family together, but to save his entire race.

    The writer does a great job making the science behind Blood Vine believable. I have no idea if most of what she wrote is even real, but it sounded nice and scientific. Ha!Oh and the Croatian history is an amazing touch and handled smoothly (no info dumps).

    The heroine, Zoey, gave me fits. On one side, I adored her and I wanted to see her succeed in everything. But she makes a few ridiculous decisions that made me put the book down just so I wouldn't break my iPad. Okay, so maybe I was a bit invested in the love story. Again, no spoilers.

    There are four characters that I immediately want to see books for. Their subplots are pretty epic in an already epic story, but they never once overpower what Blood Vine is: Andre and Zoey's romance. This book is a keeper.

    Really enjoyed - highly recommend!

    I haven't read a lot of romance novels lately but I really enjoyed this one! I particularly found the mythology of the vampires very intriguing and loved the storyline. Looking forward to the sequel!

    Delicious! Zoey and Andre have broken hearts, but the attraction

    Delicious!
    Zoey and Andre have broken hearts, but the attraction between them demands that they try again - ready or not. And they have to work together: Andre needs Zoey's PR expertise to market his wine, so that he can find his fellow exiled vampires and save them from a deadly wasting disease. Unknown to either of them, Zoey's boss is a Hunter - member of a tribe dedicated to wiping vampires off the face of the earth.
    The mysteries and histories of vampires, Hunters, and Zoey and Andre entwine for a delicious read, one that kept me turning pages in a hurry from beginning to end; from laugh-out-loud funny to breath-catching tension to heartwarming tears. The characters are smart and multi-dimensional, the sex and the relationships out of bed are hot and believable, the dialogue is sharp, the plot rich and compelling, and the setting well-imagined.
    Invest in a good red wine to sip while you're reading - you'll want to savor the experience!
