Blood Ecstasy by Tessa Dawn

Julien Lacusta is a troubled soul, born into tragic circumstances, and raised in a violent time. Despite being a Master Warrior in the house of Jadon, and one of the most elite trackers the Vampyr have ever seen, he is damaged to the core: tormented by endless shadows, haunted by unseen ghosts. And he knows--by all the celestial gods; he knows--that if he ever releases those demons, the beasts that lurk within, there will be hell, fire, and brimstone to pay.

The very earth will suffer.

Rebecca Johnston is fighting hellhounds of her own: a stalker who won't let her go, an enemy she cannot defeat, a life that is no longer safe...or free. When she ventures into Dark Moon Vale to raise funds for a worthy cause, she has no idea that she is knocking on the door of fate. She has no idea that an ancient Blood Moon and an inescapable dark Curse are about to change her life.

Caught in a web of ever-increasing danger, the machinations of an ancient foe, and a burgeoning house of lies, Julien and Rebecca must summon their courage, face their fears head-on, and fight their way through the chemical allure of BLOOD ECSTASY.

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 master’s 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 novels. Since then, she has published works as diverse as poetry, greeting cards, workbooks for kids with autism, and academic curricula. Her Dark Fantasy/Gothic Romance novels represent her long-desired return to her creative-writing roots and her passionate flair for storytelling.

Tessa currently splits her time between the Colorado suburbs and mountains with her husband, two children, and “one very crazy cat.” She hopes to one day move to the country where she can own horses and what she considers “the most beautiful creature ever created” -- a German shepherd.

Writing is her bliss.

Another great story by Tessa Dawn. The vampires that belong to the house of Jadon, residing in the Dark Moon Vale, just keep getting better and better. I loved the depth of this story. The emotions that shaped and warped Julien were prophetic and beautifully written. I also loved the fact that Rebecca was very strong and did not fall for this whole 'you're my destiny and have to be mated.' She fought it as long as she could and even though they are mated, she is under the belief of taking this whole relationship as a one day at a time, which is more realistic, in my opinion. I'm glad that everything worked out for them in the end. I can tell you one thing though...that ending? WOW!!! The next book is going to take n a Rip-Roaring Rollercoaster of a Ride! I cannot wait!!! Her Blood Curse series never disappoints!

Totally riveting. It's guaranteed to keep you glued to the pages. I only hated it when it ended. Looking forward to next novel. Totally worth it. You'll be sorry if you miss this one.

This novel was a true page turner. When I began reading this series years ago, I was, like many readers, hooked in to the Silivasi Brothers. But as we've seen with Blood Redemption, Blood Vengeance and Blood Possession, this series is so much more than the four brothers. This latest tale focuses on Julien Lacusta and his journey toward meeting his destiny, Rebecca Johnston. The story takes us into his past where we learn the source of his angst and his intense need to "escape" certain feelings. Blood Ecstasy takes the reader on an intense emotional journey where we see Julien (and others) learn to accept and forgive himself and truly take stock in what is important in life. This series continues to be so much more than just a vampire novel. It continues to explore the complex emotions that we all experience and shows us how to love, understanding, acceptance and loyalty can help you overcome anything.

Rating 5 out of 5 Hearts ❤❤❤❤❤ OMG! What a Raw, Emotional Rollercoaster Ride. This eighth installment of Tessa Dawn's Blood Curse Series is Absolute Genius. The world is dark, psychologically thrilling, mysterious, horrifying, and full of angst, betrayal, lust, and danger. With picturesque, heartpounding turns and insane twists, this installment brought tears to my eyes, giggles to my soul, and also touched me deep inside on an, "I can relate" level. The characters... OMG! Julien is a force to be reckoned with. He is so messed up inside... I found myself drawn to him even more as the story unfolded before my eyes. Rebecca is a stong character in her own right. She has had her own demons to battle... then enter Julien... Mind blowing!!! This is a story of Good ~vs~Evil that grabbed me at Hello... and kept me there dispite life's interruptions until I finished it. I Love that in a book!! If you like vampires who bite... then check out this series. It does not disappoint.

Phenomenal Storytelling!!! A phenomenal storyteller does it again with the 8th book in her dark ORIGINAL series. From the first page to the last, I was riveted by this story, seeing, hearing, and feeling everything these characters experienced. I honestly don't know how Tessa Dawn manages to make each new book so fresh and unique and suspenseful, but she does! Another favorite that I will read again and again.

Tessa Dawn has given us yet another emotional roller coaster! It was a read that pulled at your heart strings when you see two people (facing their own challenges/shadows) look to each other for love and support. Julie and Rebecca were a HOT MESS couple who had so many past burdens and dark secrets. YET! It is also during those darkest times that really showed how much a relationship can grow as they starts to understand each other better. It is also always a pleasure seeing past characters. AND HOW MUCH BRADEN HAS GROWN! It was like watching a kid grow up... But in a book! It is amazing how much more complex the blood curse world has grown as we progress through each series. I really hope he gets his story, as it revealed his personal struggles. I CANNOT WAIT FOR THE NEXT BOOK FOR THE BLOOD CURSE WORLD! It will be a pleasure to watch this fantastical world grow with each new couple!

I don't know how it's even possible because she is already top notch but I swear Tess Dawn's writing just keeps getting better. This story is both dark and beautiful. Blood Ectasy paints a perfect picture of what happens when two wounded people from two different world's collide. Well not people, one handsome as sin but troubled vampire Julien and one beautiful but hunted human Rebecca. This story has it all epic battles, a vampire hell bent on protecting his mate, and a woman that is both needs saving, but it strong and resilient. If you want a book that you will pick up and not want to put down until you're finished Blood Ectasy will not disappoint. The entire Blood Curse Series is a unique take on the vampire world, and truly fantastic to read.

Blood Ecstasy is book #8 of the Blood Curse series. Damaged souls, wounded minds, and in desperate need for healing, these pages pull you away from the here and now. This Vampire a loner, rugged, stealthy and lethal, doesn’t want to deal with his destiny (his woman) but his animalistic need to consume ever fiber of her being is more powerful, more ravenous, deeper than he can withstand. His Destiny, just as wounded and troubled as he, doesn’t want his overwhelming advances or his need for her. Within these pages, Author Tessa Dawn will turn these troubled souls loose in your mind. You will fall in love with them, you will hurt for them, you will need for them. This is one of those books that you will yell at, cry with and utterly hold your breath in dismay. Be prepared for Tessa’s twists and turns. Hold on for dear life as this story takes you to a whole new level of pain, torture, desire, and climatic release. Happy reading!

Like all the books before this one, I absolutely loved it! The world she has created and all the characters in it are amazing. You will fall in love with these characters too. Julien and Rebecca are tortured souls, but will find happiness with each other. They will go through some obstacles like all her couples. He has a dark one for a brother and she has a stalker who has followed her around the country. Can they overcome their past to find a happy future? Read the book to find out and you won't regret it.

There are stories that immediately grab hold of you, wring out every emotion and leave you breathless. Stories that make your heart ache with sadness and then soar with joy. Every time I dive into a book by Tessa Dawn I have this happen, each moment is felt, the rawness of it just overwhelms me. Blood Ecstasy is no different. The ride that Julien and Rebecca take you on is nothing short of a rollercoaster. They were perfect for each other while still being complete opposites. Each time I thought I knew what was coming, I was sorely mistaken. There are moments so heart wrenching and then so beautiful I wasn't sure which way it would go. I can say this though, anyone that wants an amazing story written by a truly gifted author should look no further. If I could rate it higher I would. Five amazing stars for an amazing story.

I honestly hope this book gets better because I absolutely hate if right now. The male lead is a ridiculous drug addict who borderlined on raping his destiny! This book is not what I expected and in a bad way! I am giving this book 1 star in the hope that it gets better! That it somewhat redeems itself from the horrid way it is going!
