Meet the Author

I confess I've had a love affaire with vampires for several years now, especially warrior vampires, the kind found in the books of Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian and JR Ward. Though I've been published in Regency Romance under the pseudonym Valerie King--and yes one of my Regency Novellas features a vampire--one day I woke up knowing I had to create my own contemporary world of the warrior vampire. For some mystical, magical reason, early in the process, my vampires appeared with enormous beautiful wings and it has been the most amazing experience to include flight in my novels, in both battle scenes and scenes involving spectacle. For more information about my unique take on the vampire mythos, check out my website at carisroane.com and my book release video on YouTube by putting in the search phrase, Caris Roane Ascension. With every hope you'll enjoy reading my books set in the World of Ascension, All my best, Caris Roane

    4.5 STARS

    The second book in The Blood Rose series continues to be as intriguing and captivating as the first.
    Ethan, mastyr vampire of the Bergission Realm is committed to ruling and protecting his realm with single mined intensity and he doesn’t have time for complications, especially with their enemies up to something.  Samantha’s life takes on new meaning when she discovers she is not only half human, half fae, she has a surprising level of power and she is apparently a Blood Rose.
    The author continues to capture the imagination of the reader with this unique paranormal world and compelling characters.  The author conveys the emotions and personalities of the characters in realistic detail that connects the reader to the story and makes them believe they are part of it. I could actually feel the turmoil of these two characters as they fight their destinies.
     The actions scenes are energetic and intense and the plot is fast paced and keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. The heat between the Ethan and Samantha radiates off the page and the sex is hot and steamy.  Add in the mystery of solving the events of the past and how they connect to the present and you have a very entertaining read from beginning to end.  I will be looking forward to reading the next adventure in this series.

    Loved it. Which suprised me.

    Ebook given by literal addiction to do any honest review.

    Embrace the Dark is a short love story about taking chances and realizing what you've been missing. I have to be next with you, I was a little wary with starting this book but once I got through the first page I was already to finish the book.

    Gerrod is the Mastyr Vampire of the Merhaine realm and he takes his duties as ruler very, very seriously. He's honorable, caring, and down right lethal when it comes to protecting the "people" of his realm. But being a Mastyr Vimpire isn't all sunshine and flowers, no Gerrod has been blood starving for as long as he can remember and its gotten a lot worse in the last year.

    Abigail only wants to open up a bakery in the Merhaine Realm, she never imagined that she'd feel the way she does about the Mastyr Vampire of the realm. She has spent the last year trying to not want Gerrod but she sees him.. the real him and understands instinctively what he needs after a perfect night goes slightly wrong.

    For these two star crossed beings things are about to change, all they have to do is accept it or not. Nothing too hard about that except in between figuring out what's between them, they have to figure out what the evil Invictus are truly after. Because in the realm of Merhaine nobody is safe and Gerrod's people are going missing.

    I enjoyed this first book in the Blood Rose series way to much. The world Roane has created is both magical and dark, she's filled it with magical faes, extremely gossipy trolls, evil wraiths, the abominations called Invictus, and the all too sexy vampires who control it all. She injected so much humor into the story, but its not overwhelming.

    4 1/2 black rose to EMBRACE THE DARK. I highly recommend this book. The world building is different and believable.
