No one can tattoo better than Inigo, a two hundred year old vampire, who works on human and supernatural skins. But he's never tattooed a faerie and when a bunch of them insist he comes with them to tattoo one of their kind, saying no proves not to be an option. His skin is Oberon, the faerie king, and Inigo fears this will be the last tattoo he'll ever do. The moment the faerie Micah lands in the faerie king's bed chamber, he knows the guy is trouble. But if he's to save his sister and his family, let alone the job he's paid to do, he has to stay in Faerieland and endure Oberon's sadism. When he's thrown into a starving vampire's cell, covered in blood, he fears this day will be his last. But Inigo finds Micah's blood too delicious to give it up by killing him. Pretty soon, he's feeling that way about Micah himself.
Over the centuries vampire Inigo McIntosh re-invented himself in order to blend in and then, move on to a new life. His latest incarnation as a tattoo artist will need to end soon because he’s gotten too well known, too much notoriety for his skills in the human world.
Ironically, just as Inigo is considering his future four tall, blonde faeries accost him in his shop and insist on taking him across the Divide to tattoo their king, Oberon the Seventh. It doesn’t take the vampire more than a couple of minutes to realize their king is a dangerous sadist with a chained and collared faerie slave at his feet.
Fearing for his life and that of the unfortunate faerie Micah Norwood who’s expected to be Inigo’s next meal the two hatch a plan to escape. Chances of success are slim to nil.
Laugh out loud dialogue, incredibly alive characters, and a wild plotline, Bloodline rocks! Snarky heroes find love, engage in hot, hot sex and face a sadist head on. Bloodline is a thrill ride from beginning to end and takes readers on an action packed journey. Inigo will steal your heart, Micah your soul. I Joyfully recommend Bloodline. Strap in and hold on tight.
