"Bloodlust" by Faye Robertson was a good humorous paranormal romantic read that I did enjoy. I found this a little hard to take in the the beginning...a vampire lusting after nuns...but Ms. Robertson did deliver this creative short novella.
The story starts when Jasper who has stepped into a room full of nuns and he becomes face to face with Amabel de Woodville...only someone he has met in the past. Amabel recognizes him...for over 100 years ago his life has never been the same...after he bite her and in doing so he was infected....and she still longed for him. Jasper is a vampire who loves live to the fullest and he does this by taking what he wants. Now realizing that they both had haunted thoughts of each others for years. Will Jasper be able to control his urges he had lived with for years and prove to Amabel that 'he is as good as he says he is.' Be ready for plenty of humorous thoughts and actions going on especially when Jasper and Amabel are together(especially that restaurant scene). With Amabel who had now turned against her will and was doing charity work collecting socks.... he has now met her maker...and then it starts...this is where I say you must pick up "Bloodlust" to see after all of this time were they to be together?You will find out how this will come out for Jasper and Amabel and let's not forget Jasper's secretary, Mrs. Gillbanks who was able to give the story more substance to this read. Be ready for many laugh out loud sessions, the melting sex and even more a sweet ending to this well written story.
If you are looking a a short and very good paranormal read you have come to the right place for "Bloodlust" would be recommended to you.

First off, this is a very quick read which is a shame because I really liked Amabel and Jasper. I would have loved to have more time with them. Even as a human, Jasper was a lady’s man. After becoming a vampire with the power of enthrallment, no woman was safe. That was until he met a young nun named Amabel. You see, Jasper has a thing for nuns. “Some men had alcohol. Some had narcotics. Women had chocolate, and occasionally shoes. Jasper’s weakness was nuns.” He cannot resist them and normally the reverse is true as well . . . except for Amabel. For some reason, she can resist him and curses him before he bites her. And what a curse it is! Amabel’s blood gives Jasper a conscience which is a terrible inconvenience. Jasper liked being a vampire. He liked “doing” whatever or whomever he wanted without considering others. Amabel has taken all the fun out of being a vampire. For 160 years, Jasper has been a vampire with a conscience. He no longer seduces women with his powers. He only kills the bad guys. It’s a terrible life. But what kind of life is Amabel leading all this time? She is still a chaste, moral young woman who happens to be a 160 year old vampire. She never bites anyone (pig blood . . . ewww) and has remained a virgin. So, of course, their paths have to cross. As I said, I really enjoyed this book. The characters are likable and the dialogue is laugh-out-loud funny at times. The sex scenes are hot, but more intimate than explicit. My only disappointment is the short length. I really, really want to see more of Jasper.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
