"Loved it!"
5.0 out of 5 stars

It's rare that I write reviews, but this book was so good that I couldn't put it down, and when it was over, I was happy to know that there was another one on the heels of this one. Tessa Dawn knows how to pull together a fight scene. She knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat and she knows how to keep you turning those pages.

Bravo!

"One of those books I could not put down!"
5.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: Blood Destiny (Paperback)

Tessa Dawn’s Blood Destiny was one of those books I could not put down from the first page to the very last! Jocelyn’s character is tough, but completely overwhelmed when she is thrust into a world she only thought existed in horror films. Nathaniel is a sexy, seductive, and powerful vampire. However I loved the fact that Nathaniel and all his brothers have such a sensitive emotional side to them, making them seem more human than monster.

Blood Destiny was a perfect book to start the Blood Curse Vampire Series! Every one of the characters is so deeply woven into the story that it leaves you completely enthralled with them all. I anxiously await the second book in the Blood Curse series, Blood Awakening, coming later this year. Such a powerfully seductive group of brothers are sure to keep our eyes glued to the pages for many books to come.

Midwest Book Review

A top-notch pick
5.0 out of 5 stars

This review is from: Blood Destiny (Paperback)

Ancient creatures are strictly bound to their law, and it's hard to separate them. "Blood Destiny" is the story of the collision course of homeland security agent Jocelyn Levi and Nathaniel Silivasi. Although Levi expects a routine investigation, she is set to meet Nathaniel, and Nathaniel has more than his devilish charm at hand, but aeons of history and strict ancient traditions behind him. "Blood Destiny" is an exciting work of fantasy and thrill, a top-notch pick.

Home run!
4.0 out of 5 stars

Home run! Tessa Dawn brings us a vampire tale and a long standing curse. Nathaniel Silvasi is mourning the loss of his brother when he discovers ICE agent Jocelyn Levi on his mountain. Jocelyn has seen something no human should ever witness and now he must guard her to figure out how much she knows about vampires and if she has details that can help him and his brothers find their mortal enemies.

I didn’t know what to expect when I got this. So glad and so pleased I got this. Blood Curse looks like the beginning of a series that will definitely hold readers attentions. The Silvasi's are born as sets of twins and what must happen at each birth is a part of the curse their family must bear. Without giving details on that piece, I will say that Ms. Dawn handles it well and with the perfect touch of realism. The scene was gonna make me love or hate the hero. I loved him.

There are a few moments when Jocelyn needs to get her head on straight but I adored all of Nathaniel’s brothers and hope Ms. Dawn plans to write their stories immediately. Great really great vampire romance that has an awesome plot, sets up the history of the vampire world and kept me interested till the end

A MUST READ!
5.0 out of 5 stars

Blood Destiny is the first installment of The Blood Curse series by author Tessa Dawn.

The cover had me intrigued by the intricate design. After reading the prologue the story had me "sucked" in, I had to keep turning page after page.

Nathaniel Silivasi is a handsome, seductive yet a very lethal vampire, cursed. Jocelyn is an agent of the Homeland Security Department ICE. On a mountain under a blood red moon their worlds collide never to be the same again.

Blood Destiny is action packed, fast paced and thrilling. A few times I was on the edge of my seat trying to get my eyes to read faster... now it is very rare that I say that. The story has to be extraordinary to have me that enthralled.

My favourite character was Marquis he has this air of authority and menace about him yet after centuries of existence is aching to share his life and love with another being. His tenderness towards Joelle in her time of need is honorable.

We could learn a few lessons from the Silivasi family about loyalty and unconditional love.

That being said, I am anxiously and impatiently awaiting the second installment Blood Awakening of the 5 part series... The Blood Curse.

Absolutely Riveting
5.0 out of 5 stars

I LOVE this book. It's scary, warm, funny and from the start I was hooked! The Silivasi brothers are not what I have always thought vampires to be. They have the essense of being vampires with the need for blood, but they possess a light in them that is mind boggling. Tessa Dawn weaves a story line from the very beginning that draws you in and makes you stay up half the night reading because you just have to see what is going to happen next.These vampires are magnetic, caring, loving, and at the same time can have you running mentally for your life!! I can't wait for the second book! Meanwhile, I have to read this one a second time while I am waiting. So refreshing that this author was willing to move beyond the hum drum of the ordinary vampire stories!!!!

Awesome book
5.0 out of 5 stars

This was a very good read. It was suspenseful, exciting, romantic, scary and even made me laugh a few times. It kept me interested in what would happen to the characters. I thought it was modern and relevant and enjoyed how current it was. Even though it was dark, the light was able to shine through and balance the negative pieces. Good job Tessa! It's refreshing to read a vampire novel that is so sophisticated yet hip. I look forward to the your next offering.

Must Read!!
5.0 out of 5 stars

Tessa Dawn has a way of bringing you into the story as if you were living right along with the characters. After just a chapter in, you have no choice but to continue the journey with the characters you will fall in love with by the end of the book. The vampires are real, the story is intense, and the lives of these monsters will steal your heart away. Page after page you forget where you are and get lost in the battle between good and evil, love and obsession, and just the sole fact of never knowing what will happen next. Thinking you have the book predicted until it makes a turn you never would have thought of, throwing you completely in the hands of the characters decisions, wishing for the best but expecting the worse. Bracing yourself for what to come, wholeheartedly feeling the emotions of the vampires heart. Their pain is your pain, their happiness is your happiness. Page turning emotion, anger, deceit, love, happiness, and of course, blood. If you are looking for a book that will steal your heart away, this is the book to read!

800 BC - Romania
The Shadow of Darkness descended upon Jadon & Jaegar cursing the twin brothers for their act of slaughtering every female of their race. Their accuser? The Blood of every countless victim. Each one slaughtered without Mercy. And so the inescapable Curse is set forth, condemned to roam the earth in darkness as reviled creatures of the night forced to feed on the blood of the innocent to survive. Immortal - forever.

The Shadow of Darkness cast one brother of Light and the other of Darkness.

Present day.
Story of Nathaniel & Jocelyn

The curse is strong part of the story. I was vague on the details only because this is what sets this story apart from the normal genre of Vampires. Tessa Dawn's writing is like a steady river flowing, smoothing the contour of the river rocks below until slamming into a jagged boulder. I found myself with several " Oh S**t" moments. The details she gives to a scene is so vivid. I love how she doesn't hold back on the horrific details and is sensual with the romance. I downloaded this as an eBook for $[...]. I have not read anything of Tessa Dawn and I have to say, she is now one I will continue to read. If I would have purchased this book in paperback for $15.00, I still would have been very pleased! Can't wait for the story of Marquis & Ciopori in Book 2.

Loved, loved, loved this book! Bravo Mea draga!

Love this book!! No glitter and sparkling Vampires here. Tessa Dawn shows an entirely different vampire. If you are tired of Twilight,this is the book for you.It is not a book for teens. It reminds me alot the the True Blood series by Charlaine Harris. READ IT! READ IT! READ IT!

This book drew me in immediately.
5.0 out of 5 stars

I was looking for an awesome read and I found it in this book. Not only did the story of Jocelyn and Nathaniel draw me in, but the Silivasi brothers, Braden, plus all the others added to the layers and depths in this story. The characters were so well written (not just their physical descriptions)that I felt like I knew each of them! I am SO looking forward to the next one. Hoping Marquis, with the weight of the world on his shoulders, is able to find the love he deserves and desires. Hurry Tessa Da

AMAZING!
5.0 out of 5 stars

I found this book when I saw an add for it on Facebook. I finished it in about 5 hours after I bought it. It was super suspenseful and so intense! I cannot wait for the next book! The other authors I like seem to have grown lax with their books and they all follow the same general format for a typical "vampire" book. But oh my gosh this book blows the rest away! One word summary: AMAZING!

I could not put it down!
5.0 out of 5 stars

Just wanted to let you know that I got the book about...5-6 hours ago and just finished it. I could not put it down! Marquis's surprised me the most, and I find I grew quite fond of him and his straightforward personality. It's really refr...eshing, especially in light of the Twilight mania, to have vampire characters who actually spill blood but are also kind and compassionate. I found that I was rather upset by the end of book because I didn't have the next book in my hand ready to go to find out what happens next! I can't wait to read Marquis's book. I bet it will be amazing!@ Any idea when it'll be out? :)

Amazing Read!
5.0 out of 5 stars

I'm always game for a new vampire novel, but typically they're always mediocre and can't match up with my usual favorites but this certainly has earned a permanent spot on my shelf and is one I will probably go back and read several times. Once I got the book from Amazon, I couldn't put it down and finished it in one evening. The novel is full of passion and suspense, and has such a refreshing storyline, especially the back story on the where the vampires came from. Without giving too much away, Marquis is one awesome character, so complex and intense. I can't wait for the next book to come out!
