Kendra used to spend her days organizing events for Café Enigma while daydreaming about Marcus, the sexy lead singer of Normal Paradox. But all those dreams of becoming Mrs. Rock Star died, along with her mortality, the moment Hector entered her life and turned her into a vampire.

Ten torturous years later, Kendra finally escapes Hector and runs straight into Marcus. (Well, actually, he hit her with his car, but that's beside the point.) The accident leaves Marcus concussed and a few pints too low, forcing Kendra to share her blood to save him.

Sharing her blood doesn’t just heal Marcus’s wounds; it bonds him to Kendra in a magical “can’t live without you” sort of way. Now he’s professing his undying love to her, and Kendra’s not sure if he’s for real or just experiencing the side effects of their new blood bond. Either way, the two of them can’t be separated without suffering suicidal levels of depression, and the band needs to hit the road for the rest of their cross-country tour.

Kendra’s content to travel with the band and explore her new-found relationship, until whispered threats from her master, Hector, start invading her dreams. He’s tracking her down, and she can feel it. She knows the horrors he’s capable of, and if he finds out about Marcus, Hector will do everything in his power to destroy him.

If she stays, Marcus is doomed to Hector’s wrath. If she goes, the repercussions of their bond might kill Marcus. Both options will break Kendra’s heart. If they’re truly meant for each other, they’ll have to find another way....

    Short & Sweet Vampire Read

    Karma & Melodies is a short but sweet vampire read. This is different from the usual hot guy vampire who meets the human girl. This time it's the girl vampire who meets the hot human guy.

    Kendra has been a vampire for ten years and has finally escaped Hector, her evil vampire creator. Before she was turned she spent time reciting poetry and listing to her favorite band. Kendra has always wondered what would have become of her and the lead singer Marcus if they would have gotten a chance to talk before Hector turned her. One night after going to one of their concerts she is hit by Marcus's car. Kendra drinks from Marcus and creates a blood bond with him. After being convinced by his band mates to go on tour with them Kendra and Marcus get their chance at love. Until Hector shows up.

    The story flowed really well and once I started reading I didn't want to stop. I loved all the characters with their distinct personalities. Romance, suspense and some action added more to this fabulous vampire read. There was not much background information with this being a novella. This didn't bother me though because the plot was interesting and fun to read. I was happy with how it ended, just wished the book was longer. I didn't want to stop reading it. If you love vampires and romance I recommend you read this.

    I received this e-book for review from the author. This did not affect my review in any way.

    Short but Good.

    Fate throws Kendra together with her previous crush, Marcus, from years ago when she was merely a mortal. Now a Vampire on the run from her evil creator, Hector, she's forced to accompany Marcus and his band on a road trip.

    Living so close, Marcus and Kendra pick up where they left off and finally take their 'crush' to the next level however Hector won't let Kendra go so easily.

    As Hector closes in on Kendra, she must make a choice: save Marcus or herself.

    Lets Talk About It:

    I really enjoyed this story.

    There was a lot of emotion wrapped up into this book. Between the way Kendra and Marcus feel for each other to the struggles the band members face having a Vampire as a roadie and the comradery that develops between them all.

    It was a really unique situation having a Vampire on the road traveling with a band, trying to keep her secret of her being on the run. Even down to the blood lust as Marcus becomes addicted to Kendra after drinking some of her blood was not something I have seen in many other books.

    Somewhat of a short story but filling nonetheless.
