BONDS OF BLOOD
beautiful cruel. Relentlessly sensual vicious. Utterly delicious vile.
Marrying into the famous Godalming slayer-clan was supposed to be my family’s big break. Our clan is fractured, my brother is dead, and my mother’s spirit was broken by the ordeal. I’d do anything to make her proud and see her truly smile again.
I’d even spend a year in the snobby, prestigious Libra Academy with Lord Godalming’s gorgeous son.
I don’t know what I did to earn Will Godalming’s seething hatred, but he’ll do anything to get rid of me for good, even if he sometimes seems like the only one who understands me. Sura Enver is almost irresistible with a cruel streak a mile wide, but he’s hiding dark secrets under those knockout looks. And when I put a dying vampire out of her misery, I end up at the very top of an ancient warrior’s hit list. No sane slayer angers Càel the White Wolf, the fiercest knight of the vampires’ Clouded Court.
They’re unstoppable. Wicked. Malignant. And each wants to make me suffer. Between the torment of Libra’s eat-or-be-eaten rules and the rising threat of a new vampire king, enemies prowl on all sides.
But they’re messing with the wrong slayer.
divine weak. A woman who desires revenge should dig two five graves. An eye for an eye makes the world blind is incredibly satisfying.
Will and Sura made me believe I was one of them, only to betray me in the worst way. With a second chance to prove I deserve to be in Libra Academy, I’m going to serve the pain back in spades. I’ll destroy Will’s pride and unearth Sura’s secrets, annihilate their family honor… and stab their accomplices in the back for good measure. If they die, they die, but I’ll be the last one laughing.
My hate for the Shadowed World has been turned inside out, in no small part because of my alliance with Càel, a knight with an inexplicable desire for me. Who’d have thought a vampire would be the one to defend me from my own kind?
With my unlikely ally at my side, I’ll have my revenge on the ones who tried to ruin me. No punishment is too harsh for them. But our feud isn’t the only one, and there are others who want me dead and gone.
Unfortunately for them, I’ve got vengeance to spare.
Things I’ve won in Libra Academy: An expensive education. A vampire sworn to me forever. An incubus on a leash. A man who’d give up everything to save me.
Things I’ve lost: My dignity. My honor. My mortality.
My blacklist has been narrowed down to two: the king of the vampires, and the slayer who helped him. I’m no longer welcome as a student in Libra Academy, but I can’t leave New York until I save my new home: the Clouded Court. I’ve promised my stalwart knight I’d do anything to destroy his Maker, and I’ve got plans to put a new queen on the throne.
I have Càel. My new sisters. A demonic Prince’s infernal spy. And the son of a man who might have a far darker soul than I ever imagined.
We’re a crew of misfits, but sometimes that’s who you need for dirty deeds.
And against all odds, those deeds might just be the way to my newly-immortal heart.
