Early Review–Blood of the Maple
A seduction-gone-wrong leaves vampire Parker Hollis with a new vegetarian lifestyle and on the run from a vengeful witch. Moving to small-town Maggie’s Grove, Parker meets a redheaded dryad with green, leafy blood that draws him in a way he hasn’t experienced in decades. His new neighbor smells divine, and it isn’t long before craving gives in to need.
In a unique community of supernaturals, tree-loving outcast Amara Schwedler has never quite fit in. She’s scarred by a traumatic incident and feared by the local townsfolk. She’s convinced Parker will look elsewhere for a mate once he discovers she’s not one of the O-positive set, and can’t believe it when Parker finds her irresistible.
When the witch who’s been plaguing Parker’s life discovers the newfound attraction between Parker and Amara, she takes out her anger on the town. Can the supernaturals of Maggie’s Grove accept Amara and band together in time to withstand the assaults of the enraged witch?
The cover art is absolutely beautiful. I wished they would have a paperback instead of just the ebook. I can only imagine how nice it would have looked in person instead of on the computer.
This is romance with a dark twist. The characters were well drawn out. They really popped off the page. It was interesting to see a vegetarian vampire.
The author did spend quite a bit of time on developing the world. However, she did it so well that you can envision everything about it.
I really enjoyed this book. It was a nice quick read. I can’t wait until the next in the series.
