Reader Alert:

EMBRACE THE MYSTERY is the third paranormal romance novel, a vampire romance, of the Blood Rose Series, following EMBRACE THE MAGIC (2) and EMBRACE THE DARK (1). EMBRACE THE MYSTERY is a passionate, sexy, paranormal romance, a vampire romance, set in the world of the Nine Realms. Caris Roane is the author of over sixty published works, fourteen of which are paranormal romance novels featuring sexy, warrior vampires in need of worthy women.


Mastyr Quinlan pursues the artist, Batya, with only one thing in mind but soon discovers that his desire for her is just the beginning of an earth-shattering affair…

He doesn’t want a woman in his life…

Quinlan must keep Grochaire Realm safe from the enemy at all costs. As ruler of his realm, a woman has no permanent place in his day-to-day existence. But when his lust takes him to Batya’s bedroom, he soon discovers he’s deep into a powerful experience that threatens to blow his life apart. He wants Batya with a feverish desire that makes no sense in his logical, warrior world. But when an ancient fae attacks Batya’s gallery, he launches into protector mode and soon finds himself embroiled -- body, soul, and fangs -- with a woman he’d only meant to bed a couple of times.

She has no desire to get involved with a mastyr vampire…

Batya’s intense desire for Mastyr Quinlan stuns and baffles her. She doesn’t want to be involved with the vampire on any level. His sole focus of ruling Grochaire Realm has kept him from staying with one woman longer than the proud length of his fangs. Besides, she’s built a life for herself in Lebanon, Tennessee as an artist and healer to the realm ex-patriot community. But when the ancient fae attacks Quinlan at her gallery, then attempts to kidnap her assistant, Batya finds herself catapulted into an astonishing adventure. Even so, she works steadily to get back to her free-clinic and her painting, but how can she leave Quinlan behind when he’s commanded her like no other man ever has?

    Really liked this one. I liked Quinlan a lot, and enjoyed his tale.
    This story line that continues on in all the series is really starting to heat up and take over. I love that, I love that all the stories keep to the same theme, a common enemy. Each Realm is fighting the same things and doing their best to not let the evil take over and rule all.
    This one was good, cause we actually start to get some where, learning who is in charge of everything evil going on. She is no longer the unknown ancient fae.
    But this isn't the end of the story, only the end of Quin and Batya's story. Which was a beautiful one, filled with love and hope.

    I liked Book 3 in the Blood Rose series better than Book 2, Embrace the Magic. I found the characters in Book 2, wishy-washy in their wants and views, but in Book 3 the characters are strong and carry the story smoothly. Both Quinlan (and BTW, I love that name for a male character) and Batya do not want a relationship and are upfront about it. Quinlan is the quintessential bachelor, he has a reputation with the ladies and his dislike for long-term relationships. Batya knows of his reputation and she doesn't only want to be in a long-term relationship with anyone, because she loves her independence, she definitely doesn't want a relationship with Quinlan. At the beginning she fights off his advances, but she is upfront with the fact that she is attracted to him. The fact that she tells him no appeals to Quinlan so he sets out to win her, for a short amount of time. They look each other in the eyes, early on, and both say they didn't want a relationship, but they do decide to enjoy each other's company for the moment, once they are thrust into their adventure to save Lorelei. I thought that was refreshing. We either have characters who deny their attraction or pursue one another without being open and clear that they didn't want a relationship beyond the short-term. I enjoyed the fact that they gave in to their attraction rather than playing cat and mouse.

    I also found Batya refreshing because there are a few times when Quinlan says something hurtful and insultive towards her. He accuses her of putting a spell on him, and he resents her for his attraction towards her. I expected her the react in the classic romance novel fashion, pulling back and building walls up, but she instead sees why he says it and doesn't judge him because of it. Throughout their adventure to get Lorelei safely to Ferrenden Peace, they explore their attraction. The conflict and plot moves smoothly forward, there are no dry or dull spots. Things move quickly throughout the story. The villain, the Ancient Fae, is formidable and she continues to develop as a character. Batya and Quinlan come to realize they love each other at the exact same moment, which I enjoyed reading. They are forced to acknowledge their feelings and they don't hold back their words of love. After that moment, the whole story takes on a sweet and enjoyable reading experience. I loved the resolution, and how Quinlan embraces his feelings and relationship with Batya. The ending was utterly perfect.

    I know my review has been a bit wordy, so here is a quick summary: I enjoyed this installment the best. I enjoyed the characters and Roane's ability to tell a beautiful story comes clearly through the characters and plot. I loved reading this story.

    Another wonderful addition to this series!

    Book 3 in the Blood Rose series... It is Mastyr Quinlan's story and takes place six months after book 2. He is the leader of the Grochaire Realm, loves his land and its people, but is a little distracted with his attraction to Batya. While trying to seduce her, the Invictus attack once again. Throughout this story we learn quite a bit about connections some of the characters have to others... This book drew me in with seeing how things unfolded and revealed themselves! What an adventure! I love how each story can be a standalone but shares bits of what may come next...

    I got a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review, and let me tell you, this book is awesome! This is the third book in the Blood Rose series and it begins to answer questions that were put forth in the first two of the series, while creating a beautiful love story with enough action to keep you turning the pages. I would consider story a wonderful lead to the the next book in the series and I can't wait to get my hands on it.
    The hero and heroine create enough sparks that I often had to fan myself with my Nook and when they finally realized everything about everything...it was...well...um...AWESOME!!! Let me tell you this alpha hero is great when he get knocked off his high and mighty by a strong female heroine that well completes him and I just love watching him stumble through falling in love with "His Woman." It's Great!! :o)

    "Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review"
    Roane spins yet another adventure in her Blood Rose Series Book 3.  Caris is an author with a flair for descriptive places and characters.
    Focus is on Mastyr Vampire Quinlan of Realm Grochaire and Batya, who possesses artistic and healing powers.  The pair set on a path
    that will lead to Ferrenden Place.  This quest will reveal hidden secrets and powers that both will need to overcome the attacks of the
    ancient Fae and her Invictus.  Visits from people already introduced in the series make appearances with surprising connections.

    This was a great book. I was sucked in from the beginning and it held me all the way to the end. Bayta and Master Vampire Quinlan do not disappoint. They are well developed characters that leap off the page at you individually  and together. Their story involves unexpected plot twists, trying to work together(while having issues of their own to deal with) and helping a friend in need and unforeseen dangers and unexpected love. The way the story was written is very easy to follow and a great addition to the Blood Rose series.*copy gifted in exchange for honest review

    This book was well written and was easy to read and follow. Cari

    This book was well written and was easy to read and follow. Caris wrote the book in great detail, I was sucked in to her world from the very first word. Now for a few words about the book. Embrace the Mystery is another awesome installment to The Blood Rose series. This story takes you on a journey with Betya and Mastyr Vampire Quinlin. What started as a quest of seduction turned into more that they bargained for. Together they must uncover a mystery of their fables and about themselves. I loved following the characters on their quest and learning about each of them as they fight to learn who they truly are and where their future lies. Can't wait for the next installment. *Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review.
