Embrace the Wind By Caris Roane Olivia Hart is a half-human and half-shifter, wolf. Growing up in a small New England town where she can sprout fur, doesn't earn her many friends. After her parent dies, she moves to The Nine Realms, specifically to Swaincott Realm controlled by Master Vampyr Zane, a truly alpha male. She watches Zane come and go from the bar across the street and ends up "ghosting" him. Olivia feels a need to protect Zane. After an Invictus attack, Zane is captured. Olivia can cloak herself and become invisible. She rescues Zane. They both realize that there is an attraction, but neither wants a relationship. Zane lost his wife and swore never to get involved again. Olivia's wolf is attracted to Zane and he is attracted her furry side. While Master Vampyrs have a group they feed from, they are in a perpetual state of starvation unless they meet their "one", their Blood Rose. After Zane bites Olivia, he realizes that she is his blood rose. Olivia offers to help Zane fight the Invictus and Margetta the head Wraith. She has many special gifts, one of them being a zephyr wolf, she finds this out after she meets the leader of the Pack , Luther, her cousin. a zephyr wolf can use quick, bounding movements to create wind to confuse the enemy. Using this power, she helps all of the creatures of the Realm to overcome Margetta and the Invictus of the Realm. Olivia has a secret she must share with Zane before they can begin their relationship. Apparently Zane's wife did not die but was an artist living in Maine. She had faked her death to get away from Zane. They go to visit her so Zane can ask for forgiveness and his wife also has a secret too. Seems that when she left, she was pregnant and Zane now had a daughter. This is the seventh book in The Blood rose series. I have to say, this was one of my favorites. A Master Vampyr who has tats and rides motorcycles and is a bad ass. Fantastic. A heroine who uses her gifts to protect him while helping to fight and defend the Realm. Excellent. I really enjoyed how Olivia came into her own, found love, family and Pack while taking down the evil residing in the Realm. I highly recommend this book especially if you are looking for an alpha vampyr and strong female heroine.

OK, call me shallow, but I have to admit that reading about a tattooed man, with long hair, into bikes, makes the story a lot easier to read. I love The Blood Rose series, but this book was outstanding. I love how although the Mastyrs are important, it is their Blood Roses who are coming into their own. Each different, each bringing just what is needed, I think they are all magnificent but I will admit to loving Olivia's attitude! She rocks!! As with the other books, the Mastyr and the Blood Rose have their own obstacles to overcome, as well as whatever Marghetta is currently throwing at them. One of the things that makes this series so interesting is that each couple have their own problems, it's not the same old reasons regurgitated for a new title. Well written, with a smooth pace, leading up to a climatic battle at the end, this is a book to savour and enjoy. Steamy and sensuous, as well as action-packed, this is an excellent addition to the series. Already looking forward to Ian and Regan's story. Definitely recommended. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

~~Copy gifted in exchange for honest review~~ The Blurb: A Mastyr Vampire. A beautiful shifter. Passion on the wind. How can a surly-tempered vampire resist the call of his blood rose, when he finally meets his match in a shifter designed to drive him wild. A powerful mastyr vampire, with a surly temper, meets his match in a beautiful half-human shifter who challenges him at every turn… Mastyr Vampire Zane didn’t want another woman in his life not after the dreaded Invictus killed his wife five years ago. He serves Swanicott Realm, the land he rules, and doesn’t want anything to interfere with his war against the enemy. But when he’s captured by the evil Margetta, only one woman can save him, a shifter with unusual powers to track him and to provide him with special protection. But will his sudden unexpected desire for the shifter, shake his commitment to go it alone? Olivia has always lived as an outsider. Being half-human, she never really belonged anywhere. Growing up as a fur-sprouting shifter in the U.S. made her an easy target. When she finally moved to Swanicott to be with her kind, suddenly she’s tracking a mastyr vampire and falling hard for the man. Except for a need to jump his bones, she has no reason to align herself with a surly warrior type. But can she find a place in her new world by getting involved with a vampire? Don’t forget to scroll back up and grab a copy of EMBRACE THE WIND today! EMBRACE THE WIND is the seventh paranormal romance novel, a vampire romance with a fantasy edge, of the Blood Rose Series. The series to-date is as follows: 1) EMBRACE THE DARK, 2) EMBRACE THE MAGIC, 3) EMBRACE THE MYSTERY, 4) EMBRACE THE PASSION, 5) EMBRACE THE NIGHT, 6) EMBRACE THE WILD, 7) EMBRACE THE WIND, and coming soon 8) EMBRACE THE HUNT EMBRACE THE WIND is a passionate, hot, paranormal romance, featuring a vampire and a shifter set in the world of the Blood Rose. Caris Roane is the author of seventy-four published works, twenty-four of which are paranormal romances featuring hunky, warrior vampires in desperate need of worthy women. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I enjoyed this one and look forward to the next. The situation with Margetta is evolving and moving towards a big climax book by book. I like Zane and Olivia together and I love how Olivia finds what she really is and her loneliness gives way to acceptance and welcome into the life she was always meant to have. Zane’s realization of his relationship with his wife and understanding of it allow him to open up to love. A realization/speculation is made about the Blood Roses and their, for lack of a better term, activation and numbers and that there are so many in a short span of time as well.

Book 7 was very passionate. I think this was the most passionate one in the series. I loved the relationship. The emotional side of it kept me engaged. Margetta did come across as weak, but I did like seeing her ankle get bitten, twice :-). Good story. Good plot. Good chemistry. The two main characters I think are one of my favorites in the series, they were strong and carried the story really well. **Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

Copy received in return for honest review. We're on book 7 of 9 in the blood rose series. In each book the main characters must overcome their desire to be separate and their own issues in addition to figuring out how to be one entity while maintaining their own personalities. Zane is so controlling his failed marriage was a disaster; Olivia is so alone she doesn't think she can be part of something. The two of them have no issues with their attraction to each other but definite issues with bonds and relationships. The more the different realm people come in the more unusual things that appear in the books to be attractants among species. I like a good shifter myself, but it's a little hard to imagine the sexy ruffs of fur that are supposed to be turn on. It is certainly interesting to see the creations evolve and the societies grow more robust in each book.

Mastyr Vampire Zane just wants to rule his territory and destroy the Invictus infestation in his realm that killed his wife. He fights as hard as he plays. Out of habit, Olivia keeps to herself, being a half human/half shifter raised on earth, where she was bullied and shunned. Obligations and horrible pasts put up roadblocks. Will they take a chance on love? Fast paced and suspenseful with spicy hot love scenes. Great series! Great Author!

Very difficult for me to be engaged with these characters. Many aspects of the story that I had a hard time getting past to finish the book. No thanks.

Embrace this series! Here we get a deeper look into the life of Mastyr Zane of the Swanicott Realm. After losing his wife, his main focus has become battling the Invictus. During a battle, he is captured... in comes Olivia a half human shifter who has secretly been watching over him... she has amazing abilities and it was entertaining to see how things come about for them. Dangers increase, passion blows in, and truths are revealed. I loved going along and seeing Olivia and Zane's adventure. This is another wonderful piece to the Blood Rose series! Can be a stand alone book, but you get to enjoy how things evolve throughout the realms if you read them all. Looking forward to the next one! *Copy gifted in exchange for honest review.

Once again this was a brilliant read. Hot and steamy romance as we have come to expect. I few surprises in this book which only enhanced the story. We have been introduced to a few new characters and have followed the war of the nine realms. May be mastyr Ian and Regina can pick up where they left off?

She is a half human half shifter he is a Master Vampire. After leaving her hometown for being different she stalks him for years always watching but never aprroaching. Until he is attacked. She discovers neew powers and saves him but angers the attackers. Their love is immediate but too many things come between them like a long lost secret that she knows. Would this secret break them apart especially since she is his blood rose? This story was great!! It answered some questions form the previous books. I am never disappointed when I read a Caris Roane book. These books can be read in order or alone.*Copy gifted in exchange for an honest review

"Copy gifted in Exchange for an honest Review" The Goddess of the Nine Realms has again sent Blood Rose Olivia to mate with Mastyr Vampire Zane . I have read all of this series and can say this tale was the best. Story was full of twists and turns in the battle and the romance department. Olivia is half shifter but one with some amazing powers  that leads her to save Zane's life more than once. Loneliness has been a part of these two for years but with their  meeting that will change along with the battle with the ancient fae.

I love Caris Roane. Zane and Olivia are amazing. Each book just gets better and better. I can't wait for the next book to come out in this series.

Wow!!!! Amazing story line!!! I can't begin to find the words to describe this book!! It is the 7th book in the Blood Rose series and in my opinion it is the best one!!!! I loved reading it and would read it again and again! I loved the character Mastyr Vampire Zane and I love Olivia; I feel that I can relate to her the best, as I love my jeans and sweaters. Love them both, wish I could read more about them! This book these two have lived very sad lives and because of it they have grown to live solitary lives. Once they realize who they are to each other, Zane must accept the truth to his past and his late wife Emily; and Olivia must accept that as a shifter is part of a greater pack. Together they can accomplish what needs to be done. *Copy was gifted in exchange for an honest review.

This is the newest book in the Blood Rose series and it is amazing.  It has answers that have been raised in previous books, it has continuing characters that color the new story with previous stories.  This book  concentrates on Mastyr Zane and the continuing battle with the Invictus.  Each story can stand alone or be read  out of order.  This is an amazing book and part of an awesome series from a very gifted author. I give it 5 stars.
