Alesia loves Zephyr, but their views on how to handle the wraith pairs have caused Alesia to keep her distance from Zephyr, though her love for him hasn't diminished. Each dawn, Zephyr meets Alesia at her café and sees her home to make sure she is safe. Until the one dawn they are attacked by a wraith pair and Alesia sees what it really takes for Zephyr to fight the wraith pairs. Zephyr discovers that Alesia is his mate. She can make him stronger. Then Zephyr discovers why Alesia wants to see the pairs rehabilitated instead of killed. I thoroughly enjoyed Zephyr and Alesia. Though their love is clear from the beginning, the relationship develops throughout the story as they learn more about each other. A story is only as good as its characters, and Ms. Roane has created strong characters with real emotions that are felt throughout the story I was gifted a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

Zephyr loved Alesia, but she wanted to break off their romance. They have opposite views on how wraith pairs should be dealt with. Their battle of wills lead her to end their romance, but Zephyr can't let her go. Will they ever find common ground? I enjoyed Trapped. It was filled with passion and adventure. I like that Alesia is a strong character and the Zeph listens to her. This was a great introduction to the Blood Rose Tales. I enjoyed it and am ready for the next tale.

A Very Good Book Contemporary Paranormal Romance Zephyr is a one-man fighting force and also a Mastyr Vampire. He also struggles to save the life of a woman that despises his warrior ways. He doesn’t feel he can give up his life as a warrior just to please a woman. Zephyr just can’t stay away from Alesia. He feel obligated to keep her safe even if they are unable to reconcile their opposing views on what to do with the Invictus pairs that are evil and it has caused them to break up with each other. Zephyr takes Alesia home with him where they are trapped together for the day when her diner is attacked by several wraith-pairs. Soon though he finds that she is the key to taking away his chronic blood-starvation when the problem surfaces as they spend the day together. Though now he has to figure out if her disapproval will ruin the moment again if she offers to take care of his needs. Alesia just wants Zephyr to leave her alone. She is trying to start a new life since they broke up months ago. It causes problems when he is the one man that can make her toes curl. She promised herself that she would never go home with him but that changes when she has no choice because the Invictus pairs attacked her diner. Now that she is trapped with him she is finding it very hard to resist the comfort of his arms or the sensual feel of his lips on hers. She has to figure out if she will be more vulnerable than before if she offers to meet his blood-needs just this once. This is proving to be an interesting and unique series that takes the vampire genre and turns it on its head. The story line is different and as it is a short story a very fast and easy read. The story makes it feel that it is longer than it actually is with all the detail and action that is in it. It will also having readers wanting to read the next book in the series which luckily is already out. Received a review copy

Zephyr a master vampire and his blood rose Alesia don’t see eye to eye. Can there attraction for each other help them to overcome their differences and move forward together? Great Read! I was hooked from beginning to end.

 Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review This is a short Blood Rose story. I have read all the 8 Blood Rose books by Caris Roane and await #9. This Tale is a Mastyr Vampire Zephyr and his girl friend Alesia. They are in love but cannot move forward because  Alesia does not want Zephyr to kill the enemy Raith Bonded Pairs that are invading.  Find out why and enjoy a great read that gives all a clearer picture of others in the Realm.

I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. Alesia has suffered a personal tragedy and because of that feels that Invictus pairs should be caught and rehabilitated. Zephyr firmly believes in kill on sight and although he knows that Alesia is completely against his viewpoint, after all, this is why they split up in the first place, he doesn't know why. Things change when they are attacked though and sometimes it takes the confusion of battle for you to see clearly. A quick read but a thoroughly enjoyable one. I love the Blood Rose Tales and will be reading more. Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Totally trapped... This short tale shows us the relationship between Mastyr Vampire Zephyr and his Half human/ Half fae lover Alesia. He has seen the destruction the Invictus have caused... he battles them to keep those around him safe, but Alesia disagrees with how things are handled. You learn about her past and why this is a huge deal to her. Can these two overcome their differences? Will being a Blood Rose bring them together or tear them apart? This was a wonderful addition to the Blood Rose world... I really enjoyed it... it had enough to keep you glued to it. On to the next!!! :)

Loved spending a night in the 9 Realms with a couple who learn the meaning of compromise Trapped could be summed up as a whirlwind night in the nine Realms with a couple who learn the meaning of compromise. For those of us who have been reading Caris Roane's books about the Mastyr Vampires and their Blood Roses, this story is a welcome addition to the world established in Embrace the Dark, Embrace the Magic, and Embrace the Mystery. I was given a copy of this story in exchange for an honest review, and on a week night when I wanted to escape to another world with a good story, but knew the real world would be calling my name tomorrow this was the perfect length. Enough adventure and "meat" to the story to be self contained, though my knowledge of the nine realms from the Embrace books certainly came in handy, but pulled together so tightly the characters found their way to a satisfying conclusion before I needed to turn out my light.

Gifted a copy for honest review. I loved Trapped (Blood Rose Tales #1). Mastyr Vampire Zephyr and Alesia are the main characters in Trapped. Zephyr and Alesia broke up and he feels obligated to keep her safe. They are attacked outside her diner, Zephyr flies her off to the safety of his home. They both soon discover that she is a blood rose. The story is great. I highly recommend this one.

While I just received this to review, it turns out I've already read it, perhaps in an anthology of some kind. It may be one of the earliest books of the Blood Rose I read. I enjoyed their story because they're struggling against inherently opposite beliefs that are preventing their union, but they are clearly in love with each other. Neither wants the disapproval of the other but they can't seem to reconcile their differences. Ultimately it is a story of growth and sacrifice, as well as great understanding.

This is the extraordinary story of Zephyr, a warrior of strength and conviction who fights wraith-pairs while struggling with blood starvation and Alesia, a Fae, his BLOOD ROSE who refuses to commit to their relationship because she abhors Zephyr's refusal to save wraith-pairs and rehabilitate them. Their contest of wills stirs your emotions and when they discover the compromise that saves Zephyr and Alesia you feel the exhilaration along with them. This is a rewarding tale of love, loss, acceptance and understanding...onto to book two as these stories are difficult to set aside!

My copy was gifted for an honest review. Trapped is a short story that brings another Mastyr Vampire, Zepher and possibly his Blood Rose Alesia Into the story. Alesia has to a decision how she can deal with Zepher killing the Realm Folk that have been kidnapped and forced into a life of a Invectus wraith pair. There are exciting twists and turns. Their story is well worth the money.

~ 2.5 Trapped Stars ~  Trapped is a quick short read set in The Blood Rose series by Caris Roane. Probably best to read The Blood Rose Tales only if you have read the rest of the series first. You only get a taste of the world and you may have some questions otherwise.  Alesia and Zephyr know each other and had a previous relationship, so the relationship did not have to be built from the begging which helped since the book was so short. I got frustrated with Alesia ’s view point on the wraith’s and her inability to see what Zephyr goes through as a warrior protecting the realm. They both did some growing in their view points and found a true compromise in the end.  Trapped is part of the Dark and Deadly box set. It’s a quick short read with some action, hot romance and a fascinating world. Recommend reading The Blood Rose series first.
