I am everything you seek. I am vampire.

Blessed with the gift of telepathy, Terek always knows what a woman wants. His gift has afforded him nightly sensual pleasures and exotic treats for centuries, but beneath the surface he yearns for much more.

Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can't find the balance between heart and mind.

About the Author

I'm a UF/PNR author and for me, a book does more than just tell a story. It transports readers away from their daily lives to another place where they can be a part of something different than the common and everyday. I'm always so touched when readers tell me they felt like they were a part of the story when they read my books. And if you like contemporary romance, I write that genre under my K.M. Scott name too!

When I'm not writing, I can be found reading romance novels but often mysteries, cookbooks, and anything dealing with ancient and medieval history and European history, in general. I also love the outdoors, so I enjoy the wonderful weather Pennsylvania has to offer. I live there with my son and a herd of pets.

I loved this book so much. From the very first page to the last. This book took my heart and squeezed. Gabrielle's writing takes you to that time and place. I felt like I was a part of this book. This series is progressing and just getting better and better. With each book you understand more of the Son's of Navarus world. This book helps you better understand the relationship between sire and vampire. I truly adored this book with every fiber of my being. Even though this is a vampire story it is very much realistic in our everyday wants and desires. Terek, a sexy vampire, he is one of the Son's of Navarus. He is a play boy in his own way, yet he always wants to make everyone happy. He has lived a long time and he has seen and done a lot. In all his years he has never come across that someone special just for him until one night he meets a beautiful angel. Ilona, beatiful and strong wakes up to find herself a vampire, She isn't sure she can accept this new life. She is very sure that she is attracted to Terek and she doesn't like the idea of him with any of the other vampire woman. As the days go on and she spends more time with Terek she realizes that her world has forever changed. Gabrielle gives depth to both of these characters. Her characters never lack in anything. Her characters come to life and off the pages into your heart. This book had so much emotion. I cried, I laughed. I felt a lot of physical reactions when reading this book. Its a total pantie melter! In this book Gabrielle takes you on so many journeys to different places. I felt like I was there with Terek and Ilona. She gives us vivid backdrops and breath taking love scenes. This book will forever stay with me. Its a must read! I can't wait for the next book. Cover: Loved it Rating: 5 Stars Characters: Extraordinary Recommend: Most def Will I continue this series: No doubt!

Five stars The emotions of Terek and Ilona is heart stopping and a path of learning for both characters. The twists and turns and return of good and evil in third book of Sons of Navarus  left me craving more. Gabrielle use of words and colors and mythology in plot is absolutely amazing I felt like I was actual there and felt the emotions of the characters from lust,love heartbreak, lost and guilt. Characters are very strong individuals. This is a very steamy read. I am telling everyone I know it's a must read along with first two books in series. I look forward to the next book in series. Excellent job Gabrielle I really am excited to continue with the series. I love all the characters that have been introduced so far.

Blood Spirit is book three of the ongoing story of the Sons of Navarus and the war against the dreaded and evil Archons. The Hero of this story is Terek, which we met in a previous book. As the story opens, Terek in hiding in the shadows away from the fading sun watching people parading into a church and remembers a life lost many centuries ago. He is so tempted to follow them into the Church until reminded by his friend that it is no longer a place where vampires can enter. He is also reminded, that they must return to Vasilije's to rejoin the rest of the 'Sons'. Before leaving, Terek takes a quick tour of town to ensure there are no Archons about that may cause harm to his loved ones during his absence. He has only gone a short way when he hears a woman screaming in distress and finds her lying deathly still on the ground and a man bent over her. Terek attacks man then turns to hear the woman's plea to help her. Terek is able to find out that her name is Ilona before she falls unconscious. He fears that the only way to save her life may be to turn her into one of his kind. There is so much depth in this absolutely wonderful story that Gabrielle Bisset has given us that her characters come alive for me. The story is so realistic that I actually feel as if I am one of the characters in the book. It takes a fabulous author to bring me to tears the way Gabrielle did in this wonderful book. I was actually sobbing with tears running down my face. There is also some great humour and 'very hot, steamy love scenes. Will Terek be able to save Ilona's life? Will he have to turn her to do so? Will the Sons of Navarus conquer and succeed in the ongoing battle against the Archons? Well you will have to pick up your own copy of this terrific book and find out for yourself. I HIGHLY recommend this series to anyone that loves hot, hunky vampires! This is a definite 5 Star rating!!! Can't wait for the next issue.

Gabrielle has done it again!!. Every one of her sexy Son's Of Navarus books are amazing. This book has so much emotion with it. There are several moments where I cried for the characters. There are also several moments where I laughed out loud. Gabrielle has put everything into this book and it shows in every way. Do yourself a favor and read her Son's Of Navarus series. You will NOT be dissapointed!

Sensual, Breathtaking, and HOT!!!! What can I say Gabrielle Bisset has done it again. This book was amazing. This series gets better and better with each book that is released. Gabrielle takes us on an emotional rollercoaster with Terek and Ilona. Terek has suffered much heartache in his life. He has done a lot of soul searching over the years as a human and vampire alike. After going out for a walk one night he comes across Ilona, who is in trouble. He knows he must save her. Ilona wakes up to a new life that she isn't sure she can accept. She wants to leave but she can't deny the physical attraction she has with Terek. But it's more than just physical, there is a feeling much deeper telling her to stay. Terek is like no other and wants to give Ilona the world and the happiness that she deserves. But how can she be happy in a strange place and when someone is trying to kill her. Terek being one of the eight Sons of Navarus, has a duty to protect his kind from the Archons. The law and order of their vampire world. The Archons are hell bent on killing them no matter who or how many people get in their way. We also get to see a recurring villain Marc Verrater. Marc is an Archon starved for power, and will stop at nothing to get to the top. But Terek will do anything to protect Ilona and the ones he loves so much. Terek is not only a sensual lover but he is also an exprienced warrior. No one will stand in his way on his mission to defeat the Archons. He will protect Ilona at no cost. Gabrielle takes you to a place like no other. Her world of vampires are captivating. Blood Spirit is not your typical paranormal romance. It has action and a mystery that will keep you guessing. This story pulls you in from the first page and keeps you enchanted until the end. Every emotion you have, you will feel with this book. It will pull on your heartstrings and so much more. This series is a definite must read. Vampire Dreams Revamped (prequel) Blood Avenged Blood Betrayed Blood Spirit Blood Prophecy (coming in 2013)

I just have to say this is an awesome series! Blood Spirit is no exception. Love the main character, Terek! I think he may be my favorite of the series so far. Can't wait for book #4 to come out! I love the ancient history the author has interwoven into the series. Mythology is one of my favorites. I've loved mythology since I was old enough to hear about it!

Sons of Navarus #3 Blood Spirit I loved this book. Terek to me is more lover then fighter until you mess with what he loves then you better watch out because he will be out for revenge and he won't be stopped until he gets it. This book will make you laugh and cry and the descriptions of the places they visit makes you feel like you are the one standing there. This book has it all and I would recommend it to anyone. Can't wait to see what Gabrielle has in store for the next book.

NOTE: I recieved this ARC in exchange for an honest review of this book. I really cannot express strongly enough just how wonderful Gabrielle Bisset’s storytelling abilities are. With each book, I enter into the heart and soul of characters brought to life within the world she builds inside my mind. It is rich in details and suspense and those sexy, alpha vamps reach right off the page, wrap their ever lovin’ arms around you, engulfing you in their lives. And, may I say, I am a very willing subject! With her latest book in the Sons of Navarus series, Blood Spirit, we get up close and personal with Terek. We have known Terek since the beginning, but now, we are drawn into what makes him the vampire he is today. Like all the Sons, he is intensely sexual, sensuous, smart, loyal, dedicated and a man, excuse me, vampire of honor. While outwardly Terek believes he is the perfect sire to his mostly female clan, inside he hides the terrible events of his past. That past keeps him from truly forming any lasting bonds with any of the women in his ‘family’. Until one night, he hears a woman’s screams, and instinctively knows her life is in danger. As he races to save her, he prays he will not be too late. The scene he comes upon makes it very clear that unless he turns her, she will not survive. Knowing he is unable to give her that ‘choice’, he realizes that there is a chance she will hate him, even though he is saving her. But his heart makes the decision for him, and so the story begins and we are introduced to our heroine, Ilona. Ilona is distraught over the fact that she has been made a vampire and is angry and resentful toward Terek, while at the same time inexplicably drawn to him. She outright refuses to ‘accept’ her new life and does not want to be one of the many women he has in, what she believes is, his ‘harem’. Ilona continuously lets him know that she considers herself a monster and wishes he would have just let her die. As Terek and Ilona fight to find their way to each other, the road they travel is filled with snarky humor, heart wrenching loss, sensuous love, difficult choices, and the eventuality of finding yourself and opening up to the person you love, no matter the cost. And if that is not enough for you, while this entire personal discovery is playing out, the Sons are fighting the Archons (ruling vampires who want to kill the Sons), in a race to save themselves and the humans they protect. I highly recommend this series to anyone who really loves books with a fantastic story and sensuous romance. The Sons of Navarus will not disappoint.

Terek is like no other , he is sexy and very kind but with a heavy heart, until Ilona. you just don't seem to get enough of them, it has everything you want not only paranormal but the romance aswell. I can't wait for what Gabrielle has in store for us in the next Son's book.

A love so deep it touches your very soul................................................................................................................. This is one series that just gets better with every book. Gabrielle Bisset’s love for her Vampires shines through in her writing as she introduces her readers to these powerful, mysterious and sensual Vampires trying to defend their race against genocide. In Terek’s story we come face to face with a male who not only knows, but can provide what every woman desires due to his very special gift. But as is the case with most self-proclaimed bachelors, Terek is about to meet his match. You will be tempted to dislike Terek for his whoring ways and blasé attitude towards commitment of any kind. But no matter how hard you try, there is no escape from this charismatic Casanova of the Vampire world, who longs to have what he believes will never be his……his one true love. Hold on to your romantic heart, as it is destined to collide with Terek’s passionate soul and take you on a journey of no return.

I'm beginning to wonder if Gabrielle Bisset loves to make people cry...because this book definitely was a tear jerker. Oh boy...was the water works happening when I was reading this book.  Terek, is one of the Sons of Navarus, and he is one vampire who definitely takes his siring very seriously. He has sired over thousands of new vampires. Some of the vampires live under one of his households that he frequently visits. One night, he comes across another vampire biting a human and then he witnesses the vampire being staked by a hunter. The girl who was bitten is left for dead and it is up to Terek to save her, so he takes her back and sires her instead. She is not a typical woman though.  Ilona, was just leaving from a party when she ends up getting herself into a dilemma. Now, she's a vampire and is forced to feed from Terek. She does not want to cooperate at all. She's not taking to the whole entire vampire thing all too well. She just wants to die.  Terek of course, has never given up on any of his vampires he has sired and he will not give up on her. He has his other female vampires who are helping him with her while he helps out with the other Sons of Navarus.  The Archon, who are hunting the Sons of Navarus are now going after vampires they think are the Sons of Navarus and they also are attacking the vampires the brothers have sired. It's up to the Sons of Navarus to find out what the prophecy really means for the Order (no spoiler...sorry...not giving away anything...If you want to find out more, you need to read this book). Let me just say this, between Vasilije and what he had to ordeal in this book (the first Son of Navarus in "Blood Avenged") and Terek and what he had to go through with his vampires. I had a hard time not crying. I felt my heart hurt for both Vasilije and Terek.  And don't get me started what Vasilije put Sasa through. Grrrrr!!!  Can I just say...I love Thane in this book and how he stepped up to do what he did. He had every right to help out a friend in need.  My favorite parts in the book were when I learned more about the background of Terek. Seriously, he is not a vampire to mess with. That man can kill you in an instant. Do not mess with his family! He has gone through so much, I do not know how he handled it so well. He did finally have Ilona to help him through some of it. She is definitely perfect for him. Ilona was a little difficult at first, until she finally gave in to Terek. (Ummm...who can resist him though?...I wouldn't be able to)  Gabrielle does an amazing job on putting a reader through so many emotions at once. She definitely is one amazing writer and she definitely has a fan for life. I look forward to reading the rest of the Sons Navarus books.  I'm telling you now, if you haven't read these books, you really need to. If you're a fan of paranormal erotic romance, and love vampires, you will love these books. Do not forget the tissues though because you will be crying especially in this book.  I give Terek's book 5 moons...and he definitely gets a little piece of my heart, but Saint has my full heart still...until maybe Thane or Dante's book. (Those two...I need to know more about) =)

This book was hands down my favorite book in the series so far. Considering my love of Vasilije I didn't even think that this was possible. ;) From the first sentence I was completely enthralled and found it impossible to put down. I loved getting to know Terek and absolutely fell in love with him. I adore this series and can't wait for the next one. Thanks so much Gabrielle for another AMAZING book. <3

A great addition to the series! Rating: 4 Heat Rating: 4 out of 5 Blood Spirit is the third book in Gabrielle Bisset's Son's of Navarus series. This paranormal erotic romance series follows the eight Sons of Navarus as they they battle the Archons in the civil war that is tearing their world apart. Blood Spirit is Terek's story. I have a few things to say about this book but I'll try to streamline it for you. Terek: Terek is the most spiritual and prolific Son. He has sired thousands of vamps, mostly women. He even keeps these women around him. Though people think of the women as Terek's harem, Terek thinks of them as his family and only wants to protect them. OK - so I get this but it's a load of bull IMHO. I believe that Terek uses his women. Not because of the sex as the term &quot;harem&quot; implies but in other ways that become apparent as you read the story. Terek even comes to some realizations about this very thing in the book. After reading Blood Spirit I can say that I neither like nor dislike Terek. I am really happy that he can't read Ilona's thoughts though. You shouldn't get to cheat in your relationship LOL! Ilona: Ilona is a lovely woman. I thought that it was fantastic that she defied Terek. Even though it was harmful to her, her determination was admirable. Secondary Characters: This book held a wealth of secondary characters. Besides the rest of the Sons we get Terek's women. Though not all of them are named, their courage, strength and solidarity was unbelievable. Now those are some women that I'd love to have my back. Villains: Gabrielle Bisset has a way with villains. She creates some top-notch bad guys with what appears as ease. Truly they are unparalleled. Even her good guys come with a side of bad *cough* Vasilije *cough* LOL. In Blood Spirit I found three different antagonists. They form a hierarchy. The Archons in general are the villains as far as the series story arc goes. Underneath the Archon umbrella we find Marc Verrater. We first met this screwed up Archon in Blood Betrayed. He's a sadistic little puppet-master. The view we get of him in Blood Spirit, though somewhat uneventful, made me queasy. I hate that he's climbing in power (even if it's to be an expected story development)! The man is trouble. I cringe when I think of what he'll do next. The &quot;muscle&quot; and the main villain in Blood Spirit is a hunter for the Archon's named Knull. He gets his orders from Verrater. He is truly evil. I honestly thought of him as a grunt doing his job until I saw him in action. He totally stole the show if you ask me. Mythology: In Blood Spirit the war between the Archons and the Sons continues and the Sons figure out more of the Prophesy of Idolas. Though I enjoyed learning more of the mythology behind this series it really wasn't my thing. I'm more interested in the relationship that seems to be brewing between Sion and Kali. I hope we'll see more of it in the future. Plot Surprise: One surprise in this book that I particularly enjoyed involved that hedonistic vamp we all love, Vasilije. The little side-story with him and Sasa was expected yet not. Does that make sense? I mean, I knew that an issue would come up between them eventually. I just didn't expect the way it came about. Gabrielle really stuck to Vasilije's MINE issues with what happened. I can't wait to see how they figure things out. I know that Gabrielle is planning on writing a freebie that will be available trough her site about the two of them. The Settings: The settings in Blood Spirit were FANTASTIC!!! Gabrielle Bisset painted some awesome scenes with her vivid descriptions. I've added Morocco to the places I want to visit list just because of her! Sexual Content: As is usual with Gabrielle Bisset's work, Blood Spirit is full of multiple steamy scenes. With it's great characters, vivid descriptions, engaging plot and steamy sex scenes Blood Spirit is a great addition to the Sons of Navarus series. Believe me, you're going to want to hop aboard the Terek train and take him Blood Spirit for a ride! *For the best reading experience I suggest reading this series in order Prequel: Vampire Dreams Revamped Book #1: Blood Avenged Book #2: Blood Betrayed

Blood Spirit is the third book in the Sons of Navarus series, it is the story of Terek and Ilona. Along with being one of the Sons, Terek is a former monk and he has the gift of telepathy. Ilona is a feisty lady, that happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, being made Vampire, without being given a choice. She is hurt and resentful toward Terek while at the same time being drawn toward him. While Terek and Ilona are trying to figure out their differences including why he cannot read her, things are heating up between the Sons and the Archons. With Terek and Vasilije's vampires under attack, the Sons must do what they have to in order to keep the their loved ones safe, and protect the vampire world. This was a very emotional read, with a lot going on, and lots of glimpses into things to come, so be sure to grab your tissues before you start this one. This was a story about betrayal, sorrow, love and loss. Gabrielle Bisset has a way of pulling you in from the first page, and now I cannot wait to see what happens next!!
