Overview

Officer Kristin Greene has always felt that something was missing from her life. Although her job with the Fawn Hollow Township Police Department keeps her busy, she still feels like there is something else out there for her.

She soon finds herself investigating a homicide where a young woman has had her throat ripped out. When she has to give the death notification to the family, her investigative nature comes out fast and strong when the parents seem too accepting of their daughter's death and make comments that just don't fit.

When the family requests the assistance of the VMF Securities, Kristin is confused that they would think a security company could assist with the murder investigation. When Julian and Alexander arrive she quickly finds herself being pulled into a love triangle that has been going on longer then she has been alive. Why do they look at here as if they know her? And why do they keep talking about Calista?

Join Kirstin as she fights to learn the truth about the recent murder, the seductive and blood drinking men that have entered into her life and the rear truth about herself.

Editorial Reviews

Keith Weaver
My Blood Runs Blue is brilliantly written by Stacy, and includes all the elements in a crime drama you could ask for: think the drama of SVU with the passion of a day time soap opera mixed in with The Vampire Diaries. There's a little something for everyone in this story, and you won't be disappointed at all.
John Walker
The story is well paced as the narrative switches evenly from one character’s point of view to the other. This is an accomplished book written by an author who knows what she’s talking about; a salient and erotic fantasy horror-thriller, with some surprising plot twists, covering real themes about the power of desire, the joy of finding true love, and the pain of losing it forever.
Samantha Warren
Eaton does an amazing job at developing the characters and background for this exceptional novel. The plot is fresh and exciting and the action moves along swiftly. I found myself engrossed in the lives of the players and though my pony didn't win the love-triangle race, I still finished the book very content in the outcome with a smile on my face. I'm looking forward to book #2
Karen Edwards
Very good! There are three main characters in this story, Kristin, Julian, and Alexander. Each chapter is from their point of view. I had my doubts at first reading the storyline this way, as you will end up essentially reading the same story line twice sometimes three times, but I did not. In fact, in reading it this way you get more of what each character is feeling. This is just great vampire romance.
Erin Kern
This was a good debut book by a new author. The characters are interesting and well developed. I especially loved Julian and thought he and Kristin were perfect for each other.

It's clear Ms. Eaton knows her law enforcement. The books seems thoroughly researched and very accurate. If you're looking for an interesting, entertaining read, with a bit of romance, then give this one a try.

I hope to read more from Ms. Eaton.
Amazon - Phoebe Matthews
For romance readers who want to expand into vampire books, this story is a sweetheart of a romance. Tough cop Kristin is widowed and thinks love is over, so why does she keep having these romantic dreams and thoughts that are about a man she's never met? She's a cop. She has been trained to focus and that's what she does, keeps her mind on protecting her small town and solving crimes, right up until a terrible crime draws her into memories of a romance
Amazon - Sheila Deeth
A clever blend of authentic police procedural and paranormal romance, Stacy Eaton's My Blood Runs Blue tells a fascinating tale with excellent timing and a truly intriguing use of different points of view. The plot is pleasingly complex--no simple romance or simple mystery here. And the strange backstory is introduced in nicely manageable pauses for memory. Telling the tale from three different points of view provides a satisfying feel for the characters' complexity and adds depth to emotions
Amazon - Em Barnes
It's steamy and the story behind it is well written and will keep you reading well on until you know you should stop reading and get some sleep or do those dishes that keep piling up in the sink.
Amazon - Emily Knight
I knew it was a crime type story, but that's pretty much it. It's a crime story and so much more! I really enjoyed all the characters in the book, and I have to say that at no point was i bored or even a little tired of any of them. I found all the characters to be well rounded and believable, which was a lovely change!

There were some surprises and some interesting turns. Ms Eaton does a wonderful job of making sure that all the loose ends get tied up, and at no point was I left wonder
Amazon - Lilian Gafni
This is my first vampire book and I couldn't put it down! From the start, Kristin, a small town officer brings her cop skills to solve murders in Fawn Hollow. Kristen has the uneasy feeling that something is missing in her life. Through her investigation into the murdered victims, she begins to learn that she belongs to a select group in the community that is different from the whole population? The serial murders keep happening as the story unfolds while her own history is slowly revealed

    Great blend of police drama and vampire romance

    My Blood Runs Blue alternates narratives between Kristin, a police officer, and Julian, who is both a vampire and part of a security team that keeps watch over not only humans but his own kind. Another vampire named Alex adds narration later on. Things start when a girl whose parents Kristin knows is found with her throat gored open, one of several who have been found in neighboring towns. The girl's parents have a strange reaction to their daughter's death, and seem to know more than they let on. At the same time, two handsome strangers enter town, and affecting Kristin deeply. But that's only the
    beginning.

    First off, the chemistry between the characters in this book, especially Julian and Kristin, and in Julian's flashbacks with Calista, is electric. The sensuality is very, very steamy, and the emotional connections are described in a really believable way. I could actually feel their emotions through the words. As an aside,
    vampire/human sex is so hot and so much fun to read about!

    I thought the combination of vampires and police work was really original, and I didn't know if it would work. But in Ms. Eaton's hands, the idea is handled effortlessly. I loved the juxtaposition of tough office Kristin with her romantic feelings, and it felt very natural and not forced.

    The attention to detail of the police work and regulations makes
    the story very engrossing and realistic. The writing flows very well and is easy to lose yourself in. Also, and this may just be a personal thing, but each chapter is titled with the character's names, which makes it very easy to know whose head your in, as opposed to other books where there is head hopping and you can't tell who is talking.

    The supporting characters are as well fleshed out as the main characters, and I could really see them in my head.

    My Blood Runs Blue is a very solid and enjoyable 5 star read, and I'm very eager to read the sequel!

    Great read!

    This was a really solid first book! It was very clear throughout this author knew about law enforcement. It shone through and made the novel that little bit more realistic! Wonderful! I love any book that drops 'breadcrumbs' - revealing the truth little by little, and the author does a great job this! I was thoroughly intrigued as to why the death of a stranger would have some importance to Kristen... The memory of Julian and Calista was beautiful! And instant mating. And Kristen's reaction to Alex's revelation was so real! I couldn't help but laugh too. Alex and Jules' were definitely swoonworthy. I can think of worse things than being adored by 2 hot male vamps! It's a well written novel, with a very solid plot, though I personally felt on a few occassions the prouse could have been edited to make reading a little smoother and remove repetitive words. This did not distract from the story in any way, and is more of a personal preference. I would be very interested in reading more from the author, and more from these characters!

She had been trained to focus and that's what she does, keeps her mind on protecting her small town and solving crimes, right up until a terrible crime draws her into memories of a romance, well, I won't spoil it but I will say, this is a well-written story weaving bits of fantasy through a believable setting and letting you see deeply into the thoughts and hearts of the main characters. Enjoy!

    Authentic police procedural and pleasing paranormal romance

    A clever blend of authentic police procedural and paranormal romance, Stacy Eaton’s My Blood Runs Blue tells a fascinating tale with excellent timing and a truly intriguing use of different points of view. The plot is pleasingly complex—no simple romance or simple mystery here. And the strange backstory is introduced in nicely manageable pauses for memory. Telling the tale from three different points of view provides a satisfying feel for the characters’ complexity and adds depth to their emotions and decisions.

    There are lots of different takes on vampire lore on the bookshelves today, and Stacy Eaton’s nicely different approach fits well, neither adding too much to nor breaking too many traditional strands. The story builds a pleasing sense of a secret vampire community. Tackling good and evil, love and lust, with equal honesty, the author creates a novel with surprising depth.

    The end of the story feels a little rushed but brings a pleasing completion to the tale. I’m hoping to read the sequel soon, but My Blood Runs Blue stands alone as an enjoyable story raising fascinating questions and adding some interesting twists to cross-genre fiction.



    Disclosure: I learned from the author when this book was being offered free and was lucky enough to get a free ecopy.

    My Blood Runs Blue takes vampires and cops and turns those two things into a novel that will leave you begging for more! (Luckily for the readers, it's part of a series!)

    My Blood Runs Blue follows Kristin, a tough cop who knows how to handle tough situations. That is until she meets Julian and Alexander. Then, her world is turned upside. She is introduced to a whole new world, and as she learns more about that new world, she learns more about who she really is. She's still tough, determined Kristin, but she's also something else.

    It's steamy and the story behind it is well written and will keep you reading well on until you know you should stop reading and get some sleep or do those dishes that keep piling up in the sink.

    My Blood Runs Blue was an enjoyable read from start to finish. I had a hard time knowing which direction I should root for as both Julian and Alexander sounded quite yummy, but I was pleased with the outcome. All the characters were well developed from street tough cop Kristin to vampires Julian and Alexander. An excellent story line that entails a captivating mystery, a past forgotten and a love to last an eternal lifetime all inevitably intwined when the human and vampire species find themselves in a case involving the same homicidal killer. Overall a great book and recommended read. I'll be anxiously watching to see what Stacy Eaton puts out next!
