Forbidden Blood

A House of Comarre Novella
By Kristen Painter (Electronic Book, 2012)
Set in the world of the House of Comarré, Kristen Painter gives us a new novella about the price of freedom.
Maris's life as a comarré has come down to three options: escape her patron and spend the rest of her days looking over her shoulder, fight him for her freedom with the understanding it could mean her death or undergo dangerous experimentation to transform her blood into something even more powerful.
Before she can make a decision, she discovers the vampire who's been charged with sunproofing her blood isn't so fond of her patron either. In fact, Dominic is unlike any vampire she's ever met, but is she desperate enough to put her trust in another noble? Her heart says yes...
