Series: The Vampire Covenant Series
Author: Betty Shreffler
Blurb: If you like paranormal romance books with hot vampires, powerful witches and sexy werewolves in them, then get a taste of The Vampire Covenant Series. This series is steamy, action packed, full of twists, with hot alphas and a kick@ss heroine.
In the Covenant Series you meet Kayci Pierce, who struggles with choices between love, loyalty, secrecy, betrayal, the life she’s always known and the life she was born for.
In book two of the Covenant Series, Kayci is pushed into a darker side of herself and is torn between two men. A soldier vampire named, Adrian or an alpha werewolf named, Cass.
In book three, Kayci must make her choice between them.
She’s the leader of the Vampire Covenant. Untouchable. Already claimed by another. Cass is an alpha who wants more than she can give. He wants her…to be his. Her excruciating attraction to him could cost her everything. One man will fight to keep her love while the other will do whatever it takes to win it.
Embrace the Dawning (Book One, The Covenant Series)
Kayci Pierce possesses strength, endurance, and accelerated healing that set her apart from normal humans—traits she’s never understood and kept hidden since childhood. She feels disconnected from the seemingly normal world around her—until she’s attacked by a creature she didn’t know exists and then rescued by a stranger she can’t forget. Dreams of the attractive, dangerous man haunt her and lead her into a world she was born for.
Adrian Spade spends most of his solitary nights hunting rogue vampires for the Covenant, until an undeniable attraction leads him to reveal his vampire identity and risk his life by saving Kayci’s. Tempted by her mysterious nature, Adrian finds himself drawn to Kayci and becomes her protector while she discovers her heritage and what it means to be a half-breed vampire sorceress.
Kayci’s relationship with Adrian brings her as much passion as it does danger. Now with a vampire revolution beginning and a romantic connection to a full-blood vampire, Kayci must work with Adrian to survive surrounding threats. As Kayci tries to make sense of an unfamiliar world, she’s forced to choose between the life she’s always known and her vampire birthright.
Cruel Temptation (Book 2, The Covenant Series)
The war is over. The rogue vampires dispatched. As a full-blood vampire and sorceress, Kayci Pierce finally feels safe. Her focus now set on how to run the Covenant and best protect her species. The next-in-line, Lycan clan leader shares Kayci’s vision—but his captivating and sexy brother, Cassius McCabe is a distraction Kayci can’t afford.
New threats surround Kayci as she navigates unfamiliar territory and feelings she can’t hide. Will temptations destroy her and everything she’s worked for, or will love be enough to pull her back from the edge?
Dark and Beautiful Nights (Book 3, The Covenant Series)
Devotion keeps Kayci longing for Adrian’s return. Dark magic is the only way to free him and its cruel seduction has captured Kayci in its embrace. Cassius, unwilling to lose the one thing he’s longed for—his mate, fights for Kayci’s heart and saves her from her biggest threat…herself.
Pulled between unrestrainable desire for Cassius and her devotion to Adrian, leaves Kayci suffering from the worst battle she’s ever encountered…the one for her heart.
Thoughts: All in all, this is a decent series, and if you happen to like YA paranormal then this would be perfect, since it has that vibe to it. The book jumps right into things and the author does a good job all the way around. For me personally, however, it is always a flip of the coin as to whether it’s going to be a hit for, simply because of that YA feel to it. The characters are older, probably more along a New Adult range, but I felt like the characters were somewhat immature and the book read that way. All in all, it fits right in with the genre and is a decent read.
