Michelle Rowen’s BLEEDING HEART

When it comes to anthologies, I just read the stories by the authors I know and love, and those on my wishlist. Such is the case when I picked up Primal – forget Lora Leigh, Ann Aguirre, and Jory Strong; I’m only it for Michelle Rowen.

This novella, Bleeding Heart, fits between Nightshade and Bloodlust in the two-book Jillian Conrad series, and if this story is anything to go by, readers will be wishing for more dark urban fantasy from this talented author.

Jill was temping in the same building as a pharmaceutical company when she was held hostage, and injected with a serum that makes her blood both irresistible and deadly to vampires. Declan Reyes is her protector, a scarred dhampyr whose left eye was clawed out before he met Jill. He, too, seems to have been injected with something, leaving him emotionless.

Looking to cure Jill of the poison killing her, the pair meets with Dr Victor Reynolds to prepare for Jill’s haemodialysis. But the doctor has his own agenda, and his assistant has another plan entirely.

I’m all for parachemistry, and I love this particular Rowenverse. Primal is worth acquiring for Bleeding Heart alone. Now, to get Nightshade and Bloodlust
