Overview

With his dying breath, Samara Frank’s father bids her to find the Templar Krestien de Godfrey. Only he can protect her and the ancient Sumerian relic they unearthed in a Mayan burial chamber in Belize. It’s a piece of the mythical Adama Tablet and a prehistoric alien god with a cult following called the Covenites will use everything in their power to get the tablet— from the Ark of the Covenant and the Spear of Longinus to Samara’s own damaged sister, Sierra.

Krestien de Godfrey is a man haunted, the bastard son of Godfrey de Bouillon, Duke of Lorraine and Defender of the Sepulcher, he was born only to continue The Blood—an ancient line of divine kingship that goes back to Christ and Cain. A Saracen blade took his left eye and marred his face, but ambrosia from the Grail gave him everlasting life and he’s lived in service to his Order. He can never atone for all he’s done, but Krestien will settle for the quiet peace of eternal sleep after he secures the Adama Tablet.

Samara is a woman of The Blood, the only thing for which this Templar may break his vow of chastity, but she’s the first to look on Krestien’s scarred face with desire. She was raised on tales of his greatness and finds him a hero in the flesh, all the more real for his demons. The Adama Tablet could make her career as an archeologist, but after she sees his suffering, Samara is determined to help Krestien find the peace he seeks.

The call of Blood to Blood is irresistible, but will it be enough to light a candle in the darkness and save them both?

    The Blood and The Vow is what happens if a Dan Brown book and a Kresley Cole book have a baby. Lol.
    Samara Frank is much more than your average archeologist. She is of the Blood, a descendant of Christ. When her father is killed by the Covenites, Samara seeks out Krestien de Godfrey, a Templar knight in the Order of Lazarus.
    Krestien de Godfrey seeks one thing beyond all else, his final sleep, or at least that was before he meet Samara Frank. Krestien has held his vow as a Templar over a span of time unimaginable to most. He has witnessed the brutality of countless wars and suffered the cruelty of humanity. 
    The Blood and The Vow is an explosive book filled with adventure, rich with lore, and dripping with sexual tension. The story takes an interesting spin on many of the Grail and Templar legends. The characters are as vivid and layered as the plot. The secondary characters bring their own trials and tribulations adding to the complexity of the storyline.
    Samara is a strong heroine. She’s suffered the loss of her father at the hands of her sister. Her love for her father and passion for history lands her in the arms of Krestien de Godfrey, an enigma she has heard tales of since a child.  Samara comes to life when she is thrust into the middle of the search for the Adama Tablet for the Order of Lazarus. She and Krestien struggle with their obligations to history, the order, and their longing for one another. I loved the fact that Samara still had compassion and forgiveness inside her although life had thrown her some hard and fast curve balls.
    I have a soft spot for the flawed and tortured hero. And Krestien de Godfrey definitely fits the bill. Krestien truly wants his final rest. He has had enough of the world and has given up on finding his mate. Fate is cruel. Because now that he’s content with his decision to sleep the eternal sleep, she gifts him a female he doesn’t want to leave, his true mate. In true male fashion, Krestien decides too late he made the wrong choice, but even the eternal sleep can’t keep him from Samara.
    This story is filled with deep emotion, thrilling action, and very steamy sex. Ms. DeWylde has a flare for writing passionate love scenes filled with sensory detail which draws you into the scene. Outside of a few editing and formatting issues, this story was near perfection. I give it 4.5 stilettoes!
