The first book in The Blood Rose Rose series is a unique and captivating tale of the supernatural.
Starving for blood, mastyr vampire Gerrod of the Merhaine Realm never thought a mere human could be his mate, much less satisfy his blood needs. Abigail is a human who wants to open a bakery in the realm and she finds her life turned upside down when the enemies of the realm-folk attack a fae wedding.
This well written and intriguing book is full of action and romance with compelling characters that capture the imagination of the reader. The fast paced and smooth flowing plot is engaging and brings to life a unique and interesting paranormal world with vampires, fae, shapeshifters, trolls, and more interacting in different realms all centered around the humans.
The author paints a vivid picture of the lives of these characters and their worlds with great detail and clarity making the reader feel as if they are part of the story. The reader can actually feel the heat as the attraction between Gerrod and Abigail build throughout the story.
The author has brought to life, unique and special beings with lots of potential in this very enchanting world and I love the name given to those beings, “Blood Roses.” I am looking forward to going on another journey in this paranormal world.

Our Review, by LITERAL ADDICTION's Devilish Diva - Shawnie:
*eARC gifted by Literal Addiction for an honest review.
Embrace the Magic is a book about finding what you need, when you least expect it and having the courage to embrace it - Even if it
takes you awhile to realize it.
Ethan is the Mastyr Vampire of the Bergisson Realm and he has sworn off pretty much everything that doesn't have to do with him
managing and taking care of his Realm. He takes care of business no matter what, and to him his life is crystal clear. But fate has a
way of making itself known, and Ethan is going to get a crash course on relationships - even if he doesn't want one.
Samantha is human to her knowledge, and she has her life all figured out. All she wants to do is finish school and create her jewelry,
but fate knows she needs more and her teachers (unbeknownst to them) are helping fate out, by having Samantha do research at a
club frequented by "others."
These two hardheaded, stubborn star crossed lovers go on an emotional ride with one another and either knows what or how to go
about it. But Ethan and Samantha have pasts that won't mentally allow them to give into what they feel, even though their bodies are
already on board the train to feel good town.
Sparks pretty much fly between Ethan and Samantha. You can almost feel the emotion and power rolling through the pages, like it was
trying to pull you into their little world. No matter their stubbornness you find yourself screaming in your head "HURRY UP ALREADY,
YOU LOVE EACH OTHER." Embrace the Magic is a magical book about magical people who need each other desperately, and the
magic they create is amazingly powerful.
I enjoyed this book for the most part, it honestly bothered me that they fought their emotional attraction and the Blood Rose issue even
though they KNEW they were great together. It was just too much of a struggle and it honestly got old really fast, but none the less it was
a great book.

Sometimes, even when you KNOW who is going to get whom in the end, the journey is the best part and Embrace the Magic by Caris Roane was definitely an adventure. Ethan is an imposing Master Vampyr, a protector, a warrior. Samantha is more than shocked to find she is a Blood Rose, a rare woman whose blood can quench the thirst and aid in the power of a master vampyr. If that wasn’t enough, she finds she is also part fae, a very powerful part-fae. Her heart is torn between the new world she has discovered and the desire to go back to the human realm, but when the fate of the Nine Realms hangs in the balance, she must choose, will her feeling for Ethan tip the scales? Will she return home, never to look back? A dark cloud of doubt hangs over the memory of her mother, of who she was and what she did or did not do and Samantha’ future life is so unclear.
Caris Roane is a master artist as she paints her scenes, her tension, and her characters, then puts it all together in a fast-paced plot filled with deceit, intrigue, honor and the realization that somewhere in the world, there is someone for everyone, and its okay to draw strength for them. With that added splash of sexual tension and the sometimes obstinate personalities of her main characters, this is a fun read, and a marvelous addition to the series.
I received this review copy as part of the Embracing the Magic Blog Tour and Giveaway, going on right now at Tome Tender until October 13.
