I was pretty impressed with this book! I loved the twists and turns and the way the author fed just bits of information throughout the story, keeping me flipping the pages. And the sex was not only sensuous and hot, but it contributed to the story and the relationship. There's not one but TWO HEAs (happily ever afters) and an enticing sneak peak at book 2, and I heard the author just came out with the second book. Soooo looking forward to Book 2! I highly recommend this book for lovers of paranormal romance, paranormal fiction and epic storylines that span a series. Nicely done!

This was a well written enjoyable read.  I liked the plot, filled with action, sorrow and joy it kept me hooked and left me wanting more.  The characters were interesting and I look forward to reading more about Broderick and Davina in the next book. This book was provided by the author through the PNR NaUBA group author/reader exchange

I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Broderick and Davina. Broderick is betrayed and turned into a vampire while in clan wars with the Campbells. Broderick travels with gypsies and tells fortunes, when he meets Davina for the first time when she is 13. He predicts her life is going to be hard, but that she is strong at heart and to remember that and keep strong. Nine years later Davina has been married to Ian and he is physically abusive, he has already caused her one miscarriage. The storyline was very good. The characters were very strong and the author did a great job of mixing together paranormal fantasy with Historical accuracies.

Davina Stewart Russell has long held onto childhood dream told to her by gypsy fortune teller. Davina holds onto the strength in her heart for she'll need it in the future. Davina is barely hanging on at this time in part thanks to her husband Ian's abusive ways. Yet she knows that rescue is in sight either. Davina's father doesn't trust Ian to be a proper husband or manager of finances either. Broderick MacDougal is Vampsyrian that uses the guise of a gypsy fortune teller to help Amice and her granddaughter Veronique. Broderick has spent his immortal life learning ways to help him be able to fight Angus Campbell. Broderick wants to end this feud between them sooner rather than later. Broderick does his nightly fortune telling when he meets Davina again. Broderick can't seem to get Davina out of his mind or his heart. Davina isn't the trusting soul she used to be. Davina doesn't really let anyone into her heart and soul easily. Davina is intrigued by Broderick yet very leery of him as well. Will Davina let Broderick into her heart? Can Broderick gain Davina's trust? Will Broderick find Angus? Your answers await you in Midnight Conquest. I've read alot of vampire books but none like this one which is paranormal historical romance that's quite a mouthful to say let alone type. I'll say this though it is not your typical historical or paranormal romance despite the setting. Here's why the author did a really great job of blending the two groups together in such a way that was seamless from beginning to end. I'm really glad I got the opportunity to read this book. The characters were rich and bold as well as completely real. I'm definitely looking forward to this author's next book and continuing this series too.

WHAT A JOY RIDE - I truly can't believe this is the first book by this author. I enjoyed how the author starts with Broderick being "turned" and how Davina falls in love with him at age 13 and meets up with him later, but the love match isn't smooth sailing at all! This is a story of abuse (not by our H), trust, romance that builds slowly, and just darn interesting. At times, I couldn't stand the suspense, but my e-reader down, but had to return to it because I had to know the ending. There is so much going on, but it isn't hard to follow at all. Many stories within the story, that held your interest. I usually enjoy Highland or Regency Romance stories, but now and again, like to mix the genre up and this was a great book to do that. Off to Book 2! (ljb)

Um...holy crap? This first in the Bonded by Blood Vampire Chronicles by Ms. Burnz is OUTSTANDING! I fell so in love with Broderick, I walked around the house FOR DAYS just day-dreaming about the guy. What a great, great hero. And the villian? At times I wanted to reach inside the book and throttle him around the neck! Beautiful love story that spans the life of the heroine, as she battle an abusive husband, the motherly obligation of protecting her child, and a deep emotional connection to a mysterious vampire that captured her heart as a young girl. Oh...and for those of you that love a prophecy, get ready. I can't WAIT to read the second in the series to find out how this all plays out. Kudos to Ms. Burnz for snaring my attention body, mind and soul!

Just finished reading part 1. This was a awesome book. One I wished I had time to read and not stop this book kept calling me. Love Broderick and Davina. They both had to overcome past issues to move on. Davina falls for Broderick at the young age of 13 while visiting a gypsy camp. The details are amazing. Great Job, Arial!

A 250 page free adult book of vampires and revenge. The tale is very well-written and suspenseful but occasionally find that you can anticipate upcoming events. A little rough language and descriptive sex scenes. The second book can be obtained in the free story collection, Passionate Bites.

Talk about historical/paranormal/romantic bliss wrapped in dark intrigue! Midnight Conquest by Arial Burnz sent me back to a time and place where superstitions and myths can become reality, gypsies have “the sight,” and two souls can find bone deep love that will last an eternity. Davina meets the man she feels sure she is destined to love as a child, but there is more to Broderick than his handsome appearance, much more and soon he is gone. The years go by, Davina has married an abusive man, had his child and freed herself from his brutal clutches. Broderick comes back into her life, and although they have both changed, their hearts have not. But will loving Davina put her in danger from an ancient enemy out to destroy Broderick? Will she accept who and what he is? Arial Burnz rocked my world with the attention to detail she uses to set her stage for this dark and often edgy romance. Her characters are simply amazing, from the old gypsy woman to the brutal and vindictive vampsyrian out to bring Broderick to his knees before ending his immortal life. Davina hasn’t let her life bury her in self-pity, she has a fierce a protective side that is a joy to see, especially for the era she lives in! And Broderick? I think he may be the ultimate romantic hero, in spite of his need for blood. Once Ms. Burnz has her world firmly planted in your mind, this tale takes off and never lets up! She has created an atmosphere that feels real, feels dangerous, yet she never let the romance falter for a minute. Take a walk on the dark side of history where love is like a beacon bringing two people together as they share a once in a lifetime love!

I loved this take on vampires, gypsies and the early 1500's. The action never ends. The story is always pulling you this way and then that way. There are many layers to the story that unfold to make one big story. It's well-defined and the characters each have underlying stories that perfectly into the story. I loved the surprise twist at the end. Davina and Broderick are wonderful together!

This is the first book in the Bonded by Blood Vampire Chronicles. It is a paranormal romance/suspense, with a historical setting; rather than a historical romance with a paranormal twist. This is a distinction to be aware of as it MAY make a difference to a hardcore historical fan! This story tells the tale of Broderick and Davina, how they meet, what impact on each others' lives they have or will have, tells of the fears they fight, and the enemies who plot against them. There will be an overall story arc running through this series, as the epilogue tells us, when Cordelia once again makes an appearance. With an engaging storyline, excellent world and character building, plus a smoothly paced plot that builds to a thrilling climax, this story is a wonderful start that nonetheless will leave you wanting to know more. Definitely recommended. * Verified Purchase on Amazon * Merissa Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!

Let's preface this review with some small factoids to let you know if this is your genre... This is a historically placed paranormal romance with a slight thriller element when deciphering what the characters are getting up to or getting themselves into... A slow burn with many delicate layers that are pulled back to reveal secrets and blood, the story opens up the world of the supernatural in Scotland... Love, hate, obsession... Cruelty & cunning... Even with events flowing in a manner you thought to expect, there will be some unexpected turns for the characters revealed throughout leaving behinds moments of wondering... Overall, the story and characters were carefully written & formed to hedge your interest in the entire series... I look forward to the next installment... Please bear in mind I received this book as a freebie in exchange for an honest review Happy reading!

I started the prologue 3 times. The 3rd time I got through it and ended up enjoying the book. Slow at times but fast forward through the repetitive parts and the rest was really good

Pretty good story, a little hard to follow sometimes

There is an intensity to Burnz’s writing that keeps you coming back for more.  You can almost feel shades of darkness emanating from the story.  It melds with the storyline to create a rather unique appearance overall.  I found myself trying to puzzle out the ending well before I got there.  That said, by about half way through the novel I was hooked and thoroughly enjoying myself.  Burnz’s vivid descriptions paint this world for you in a way that you can’t help but picture. The characters in this novel were definitely one of a kind.  Burnz develops each individually, creating a varied cast, allowing someone for each reader to identify with.  The dialogue in this story definitely threw me for a loop at times.  There were individuals who spoke as if they were in medieval Europe, and others who sounded as if they should be in modern day North America.  This made it rather difficult to stay fully immersed in the storyline.  As a whole, this was a rather enjoyable read and a good introduction to the series.  I’ll be continuing on to see what happens next.   Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review (Lovers of Paranormal). Broderick McDougal, once a man of wealth, is now traveling as a gypsy in order to hide his vampiric identity. But he isn't just traveling for fun, no, now he wants revenge: He wants to kill the man, who destroyed his life, until he meets young Davina... Davina used to be a happy and naive young girl, but life didn't happen in her favor, when she was married to a violent man. Now the only hope in her life is the gypsy, who might come to rescue her... At first I expected this novel to be more about Broderick and his revenge, but in fact most of the novel centers around Davina. While I was a little bit disappointed, I still enjoyed reading though.  Davina is a really nice and likeable character. You just have to pity her for her father's bad choice to have her marry a horrible man. Although I'm not so sure about Broderick, he has some kind of shady parts, I like both of them as a couple. Broderick is simply the kind and caring man Davina needs. A big negative point for me was all the sex and erotic stuff though. I have to admit erotic novels are probably just not my cup of tea. I enjoy having some erotic scenes here and there, but I dislike stories, that center around it. In my case Midnight Conquest gave me a feeling like it could have been better, if there weren't that much physical attraction and more action and intrigue. I still have high hopes though, maybe there will be more of a plot in the upcoming novels.
