Brides of the Bloodstone
By Jen Holling
here is a little something for the serious romance reader, the lover
of trilogies. Jen Holling's Brides of the Bloodstone series
is romance, magic and adventure, skillfully written and easy to
follow from book to book.
1542 in West March, England, and the Graham/Maxwell dispute continues.
Ridley Graham is determined not only to acquire the Bloodstone,
but to wed his late father's widow.
Graham, the mystic stepmother and widow, needs to escape Ridley's
control and find the Bloodstone before he does. She turns to her
late husband's enemy, Patrick Maxwell, who is now Ridley's prisoner.
Maxwell has been trapped in the Graham prison longer than any other
prison he has experienced. His only chance of escape is with the
help of Old Man Graham's widow, who's said to be a Witch. His desire
for freedom is so strong he doesn't care.
Bloodstone protects all those who possess it. They will remain undefeated
in war and gain riches as long as they hold the precious stone with
supernatural powers. Both families want it, but only one can retain
it. Which family will it be?
a daring tale of two families, their feud, their passions, their
anger, their revenge and their reunion. Old fans will have no trouble
keeping up as everything is revealed and explained. New fans will
become addicted instantly.
by Your Kiss is the third title in the Brides of Bloodstone
trilogy. Be sure to order Tempted by Your Touch and Tamed
by Your Desire to discover the all-embracing tale of the Bloodstone
and those mystically linked to it. Two stand-alone romances I recommend
are: Holling's historical romance, Forever My Lady and paranormal
romance, A Time for Dreams.
