10 STARS FOR SURE IF I COULD!!! I loved Midnight Conquest and gave it 5 stars, but I loved this even more. The connection between Cailin and James was felt from the very first. Oh how I loved this couple! They had humor, love, respect for each other, and passion. The lovemaking was special and passionate, not erotica. The author included a few pages at the end of Midnight Captive of the 3rd in the series, Midnight Hunt. Oh how I cried, and wasn't sure if I wanted to read the next book. But the author gives you hope (not going to spoil it), but I need to read the next book. You need to read these in order, or you will be lost. (ljb)

Author Arial Burnz takes us back to the 16th century in Midnight Captive, the second book in the Bonded by Blood Vampire Chronicles. Do NOT get comfortable, this is another edge-of-your-seat read where the darkness oozes with danger and the mist hides a prophecy waiting to be fulfilled. Several years have passed since the events of book 1, Midnight Conquest, Cailin has grown up and is promised to her best friend and sweetheart, James. But the shroud of danger has repeatedly reared its ugly head as Angus continues to attempt to shred Broderick’s heart by hurting the ones he love and protects. Well-versed in the art of war and combat, young Cailin is a warrior at heart, but is that what James expects in a wife? Their love story is a sweet oasis in the turmoil around them. Meanwhile, Broderick must go on a quest to find the meaning of a prophecy that he and Davina are part of. Will he find what he is searching for or will he come home to find his enemy has attacked in his absence? Once again, Arial Burnz shows her talent in spades! It is not easy to transition through time and keep a story on track, but she has done a superb job of doing just that through the thoughts and emotions swirling through her words. The passage of time almost feels like a mist that hides the missing years, clearing when she is ready to continue her tale. As always, her characters are incredibly real, unafraid to show joy, love and loyalty, no matter what. Ms. Burns has even remembered to present the downfalls of an immortal loving a human through the years as one ages when the other does not, yet Broderick and Davina’s love is as fresh as that very first day they met. Definitely sighworthy!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal). Midnight Captive plays 17 years after Midnight Conquest. Actually this was quite shocking for me. Cailin got so big already! However I really liked her and her betrothed James. (I would have liked to get to know more about their childhood though!) In my opinion this story was a lot like the first one. Someone gets abducted by Angus and so on. (Apparantly he never learns.) I have to admit though, that I liked this book a lot more than the first. There were a lot more action and I loved how the characters interacted with each other. Regarding the prophecy, we didn't get a lot information again. I just wonder how will this end? Probably nothing will be revealed before the end :(.

4.5 Stars Another great read by Arial with an exciting plot and interesting characters. The story kept me hooked throughout, and I can't wait to read more by this author. I loved reading about the building relationship between James and Caitlin, especially the banter :) The trials and tests, as well as the romance will keep you glued on their journey until the last page

Cailin, Davina's Daughter and Brodericks adopted daughter is grown and promised to James Knightly. James has been away for years at fencing school learning to fight. While he was away Cailin was being taught to defend herself by her stepfather Broderick. Broderick loves Cailin as his own and hasn't even realized she has grown to womanhood, he is very protective of her. Broderick receives an amulet from the gypsies with a message he is to go to stonehenge. He goes alone because of the unknown. While away, James dad and Angus's henchman Jasper snatches Cailin, leaving James to go after them. I love the story, Arial does very good at weaving the story and balancing it all out. I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

The second book in the Bonded by Blood Chronicles concentrates on Cailin, the daughter of Davina. She is now fully grown and promised to James, although she hasn't seen him for a few years as he has been in Germany at a Fencing School. Things have been quiet with Angus but all that is about to change. This book was quite humorous as Cailin tries to be the 'dutiful wife' that she thinks James wants, whereas he can't figure out what is wrong with her! When Cailin is kidnapped, James is thankful that she isn't some wilting willow, and does all he can to get her back safe and sound. Broderick does his own thing, and the prophecy becomes clearer, and at the same time, more confusing as actions, together with layer upon layer of meaning, is laid out for the reader. Well written, with a smooth and easy pace, I thoroughly enjoyed the story of Cailin and James. Definitely recommended. * I received this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review. * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Give me more!! Title: Midnight Captive Author: Arial Burnz Genre: Paranormal Romance/Historical Format: Ebook Pages: 344 Rating: 4 Setting: Scotland Main Characters: Cailin, James Supporting Characters: Broderick, Davina, Maggie Summary: Broderick’s adopted daughter, Cailin, is now a woman and betrothed to James Knightly, a master swordsman and childhood friend. Having demanded to be taught to protect herself from Broderick’s vampire half-brother while James was away, she now fears that he will not want her and her unlady-like ways. Thoughts: I am really enjoying this series so far! The writing flows into a detailed story that won’t let go. A beautiful story of love, loyalty and family, with some mystery, intrigue, and action thrown in to keep you hooked until the very last page. You can’t help but see such a clear picture of the characters and the world around them. It feels like reading a story written by someone who was there, witnessing every interaction and behavior of each character, along with their surroundings. Amazing! I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Book 2 begins several years after book 1. Cailin is now grown and is betrothed to James Knightly. Angus is still chasing the family. We meet Malloren Rune who is a prophetess for the Army of Light and is working to ensure that the prophecy is fulfilled. Book 2 was very action packed. I love the interactions between Cailin and James. She is very independent and has learned a lot from Broderick. Ms. Burnz loves to throw in a good twist here and there to keep the reader begging for more! This is series is wonderful and a must read for those who love vampires and paranormal romance.

I found myself frustrated with this book. The relationship between Caitlin and James was stilted. I understand these are different times, and things were regarded differently but there were a few elements between the two that just didn't set well with me. Also, the source of their misunderstanding seemed flimsy and too easily, it could have been resolved early on. Perhaps another path should have been taken, but then again, these are different times, and I'm approaching this with a more evolved view and upbringing. I know this may seem like circles I'm writing, but the few small points may become clearer once you read this installment to the series. I was saddened by Broderick's lack of progression but it's understandable since the focus was more about Caitlin and James. This portion of the series seems to be a bridge toward what may come to pass with the rest of the series. I was curious to know what may happen; however, I felt disengaged with this book. I'm looking forward to the next step, where it leads, and if it may pick up my waning interest. I had received this book as an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review. Happy reading!

This second adult Scottish clan vampire story can be obtained in the free story collection, Passionate Bites. The tale is more about the daughter with all the drama and angst women can provide, and also, violence, rough language, and explicit sex scenes. But this is also a continuation of solving the curse and the good and evil battle continues. An excerpt of the third story is also provided.

Burnz returns to her world of paranormal medieval Scotland with the same dark and mysterious writing style that we found in the first novel.  She develops her rather intriguing plot in a straightforward manner, allowing the reader to flow forward with her.  The descriptions paint a picture of the scenery and action for the audience.  That said, there were times I found the story a bit unrealistic.  And yes, I know this is a paranormal novel, but there were times when I found it to be unrealistic, and it had nothing to do with the paranormal.  The way that Burnz’s writing meshes with the story matter at hand makes a stark contrast that presents things in a rather unforgiving light.  I found myself thinking ‘did that really just happen?’ more than once. I found the cast & dialogue of this novel more appealing than that of the first novel.  Burnz has increased her character development so that you understand who everyone is.  As much as I enjoyed the characters in this novel, I would have like to know more about their past.  It’s so much easier to love a character when you know where they came from.   This was another enjoyable paranormal read from Burnz.  I’m getting more into the series at this point and am intrigued to see what happens next.  Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
