When a mysterious female with a secret past shows up in Dark Moon Vale, her presence sets off a strange set of events: It is as if she has awakened the sleeping soul of the valley...and the Curse of Marquis's birth.Bound to each other by primeval law, the two must forge their way through an ever growing maze of danger, deception, and destiny. They must find salvation in a world without mercy, where survival demands a chilling BLOOD AWAKENING.

About the Author

Tessa Dawn grew up in Colorado where she developed a deep affinity for the Rocky Mountains. After graduating with a degree in psychology, she worked for several years in criminal justice and mental health before returning to get her Masters Degree in Nonprofit Management.

Tessa began writing as a child and composed her first full-length novel at the age of eleven. By the time she graduated high-school, she had a banker's box full of short-stories and books. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. The Blood Curse Series marks her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her first foray into the Dark Fantasy world of vampire fiction.

Tessa currently lives in the suburbs with her two children and "one very crazy cat" but hopes to someday move to the country where she can own horses and a German Shepherd.

Writing is her bliss.

Wow, what can I even say about this book. It was spectacular! I was hooked from the very beginning! I read it in just 10 hours and I could not put it down! This book was certainly different from the first, but absolutely not in a negative way. I personally feel like "Blood Awakening" was was BETTER!!! I loved getting to know more about the Silivasi brothers. I feel like I know them. Tessa is an AMAZING writer and I'm excited to read the next books in her series :)!

OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh my God! This book is sooo good! I didn't know how it would compare to the first one and now I can't believe it! It is so shocking and emotional! Words can't even describe! I felt a part of the book, feeling very strong emotions throughout the different chatpers. This book is totally crazy and is by far one of the BEST books I've EVER read! All I can say is you won't be able to put it down, and once it's finished, you will want more!

I gave the first book 5 stars, but for me, this one is even better! Marquis is an alpha vampire who has been protecting his family for over 1,000 years. He is harsh, single minded at times and can be very cruel when necessary. But for this reader, that really just adds to his "charm." The second book in this series is all about Marquis and a princess who has been underground for 2800 years. Yep, the storyline is just that interesting. Again, just like in the first book, there is a lot of darkness, so please keep that in mind (especially if you don't like violence). Great series. I am looking forward to reading the next book in this series.

I read this book in record time. It is a very emotional story with twists and turns and surprises that keep you guessing. All the way to the end I wasn't sure how it was going to turn out. I love the characters and seeing the softer side to a very hunky, macho, and intense Marquis was amazing. Great job on this one! Keep 'em comin' because I want to know so much more about all of these wonderful characters.

This book is a must read! I absolutely love it! The characters are so amazing and the way Tessa describes them, I feel like I know them personally. My emotions run from "what?!" to "oh my goodness" to "I wanna get in there and grab somebody!" You're actually caught up into this story. Loved it!!

Blood Awakening is book #2 of the Blood Curse series and just as captivating as Book #1 Blood Destiny. This book has so many twists and turns, plots, lethal fight scenes and downright intense love scenes. The Author Tessa Dawn is a master at making you want more, of making you want to know what is going to happen next. No doubt that this book is 5 stars. I have read many books with Vampires in them but never like these Vampires. They are intense, dark, sexy as hell and make you want more. It is wise for their human destinies (their women) to remember that Vampires are not human…. They are Warriors, Sentinels, Wizards, and Healers. A powerful force to be reckoned with!!!! Happy reading

Back in 800 BC in Romania two brothers 1 evil, 1 honorable both cursed. The House of Jaegar cursed to walk at night only, Wholly Evil. The House of Jadon cursed also but with 4 mercies.... Brothers of the Light. Jocelyn Levi is an agent for ICE. and is working on human trafficking. She is in the Rocky Mountains on a tip from her source. What she stumbles across is horrifying. As she runs through the Rocky Mountains Nathaniel Silivasi hears her scream of pain. He quickly sets out to find the human, what he finds is more than he bargained for. Nathaniel Silivasi is from the House of Jadon, he is a Vampyr but one who walks in the day, he has a very strong code of honor. The Blood Moon appears with the stars aligned into Cassiopeia, that is Nathanile's Birth Constellation a mark appears on Jocelyn's left wrist identifying her as Nathaniel's Destiny. He has 30 days to get Jocelyn to accept him and his peoples lives or he will die a most horrendous death. With Lycan's aka Hunter's in Moon Vale and the Alpha Lycan wants Jocelyn for himself. Than Valentine Jaegar is after all those that mean anything to the Silivasi "House of Jadon" brothers, he has already killed the younger brother. All Nathaniel wants to do is cherish is destiny, he has waited over 1000 years for her. One wrong choice on her part and all could be lost. This Dark Fantasy Vampyr book is Outstanding, Awesome, One of a Kind! I was blown away by this authors writing style, she is 1 of my top authors to read. I loved everything about this book, it is so not for the weak stomached. This book has depth and grit. Blood and More Blood!! I really really liked this new take on Vampires, so out of the box , I swear Tessa Dawn blew that box away! The ohh so hot Silivas Brothers are a girls dream come true! I had a few favorite scenes and sayings in this book. ***Vampyrs don't get headaches. ***Batman and Robin were not vampyrs. ***It was like asking someone to lay down on a razor. *** "The enemy of my enemy is my friend." ***Can you imagine a fish asking, What if I don't like water? Or a bird saying, what if I don't want to fly? If you really want to read a book that will put all others to shame than this is the book for you. I promise it will have you sitting on the edge of your seat, laughing, crying, yelling, closing your eyes while trying to read! 5 STARS Patches

I am almost strictly a paranormal genre reader and what got me into this series was Tessa Dawn's fresh take on vapire lore. Tessa does not dissapoint and developes an amazing story. She developes wonderful charachters and makes you fall in love with the entire Silivasi family. In this book a master warrior Marquis Silivasi stumbles upon the newly awakened love of his life only for it to be revealed to him that she is not his destined mate. This book has battles, romance and a sexy alpha male. Once I picked this book up I could not put it down until it was finished and I found myself routing for Marquis' happily ever after the entire time.

I am so happy that Facebook suggested Tessa Dawn as an author who was a must read! All "The Blood Curse Series" books were amazing! I read them all in about a month that is with school and a full time job! I could not put them down I HAD to know what was going to happen next! This series is not for the light of heart it is dark fantasy expect the unexpected! I LOVE this series Tessa Dawn's books are a must read!

It is Dark and Vampiric! It is HOT and Original!! Marquis Silivasi is an Ancient Master Warrior facing his own issues when his heartfelt anquish is released for all to hear. That is when the story starts to twist--and Marquis is ruthlessly tested. How much can a vampire warrior take? What will happen next? I Love the Blood Curse Series.  The characters are absolutely emotionally invested in this story, leaning on each other in times of need, leaving me wanting to knock the sinister out of some, embrace the inevitable in others, and root for a positive ending. Once I got back into I could not put it down. The world buiding is fantastical, multi-layered, consistent, and picturesque.. Twisted!! Snaking down paths I did not see coming. I Like that! Kept me on my toes. I enjoyed the crisp, clean, and clear, writing style of Tessa Dawn. Very Well Written!   This read Not For The Faint Of Heart nor is it a YA Read, due its graphic and dark nature. I recommend this for the 18+ Reader, who enjoys dark, vampiric, and steam in their reads. 5 out of 5 Hearts Lovetiggi's Book Reviews
