2020 Book Review: Bond of Blood by Diane Whiteside

This is not a book for everyone. It’s a romance novel with erotic aspects to it (sometimes I may write like this, but don’t often read this type of story). This is not my usual book I will grab and read, but sometimes I see something that really makes me want to read it and this was the case. This is considered a paranormal romance involving vampires. I do like a good vampire story. This is book one of another set of books, I am not reviewing those books just the first of the series, which I have been doing throughout these reviews this year.

The story itself is set in modern times with glimpses into the past through dreams of another character. You meet the vampire Don Rafael Perez who rules over Texas and Oklahoma. He meets a woman named Grania and though there is a strong attraction he tries his best not to move on this feeling as he believes he may be heading toward war. Grania dreams and often sees a knight in them, who looks like Don.

I liked the dream sequences, the historical retelling of Don’s life before. It’s well-written, but at times difficult to read because of flow interruptions. Recommended for those that are into this type of genre, vampires, and love stories. There were aspects that reminded me of The Southern Vampire Mysteries by Charlaine Harris.


This review is a part of my 2020 yearlong self-challenge to read and review. I have reread some books for the purpose of reviewing them on my website whereas I have read others for the first time. Check out Book Reviews and Recommendations to find other book reviews, book recommendations, and more information about the books I’m reading, have read, or are sharing.

Have you read this book? What were your thoughts? Do you agree with me? Do you disagree? Let’s have a conversation about it.
