~Fan review

If you’re looking for a sappy, easy, cookie-cutter romance with sparkly characters or weak, virginal damsels… move along, human! This story is multi-dimensional from start to finish … Whether you’re a die-hard fan of the series already or this is your first time reading this author, you will not be bored!”
~ Fan review

Bound to the wrong mate… Crushed by an unforeseen enemy… Forced to become a person you were never supposed to be…

Recently promoted to the Special Operations Topside Team, quiet warrior Breen Dalakis is the least likely man to commit an unauthorized bite. But in a moment of blinding bloodlust, he bites and bonds with a new Dragon woman, permanently tying himself to a stranger. Now he must find a way to break through her seething rejection, but a lifetime spent skirting his emotions has left him stumped.

Wild girl Charlize Renault has never been in a long-term relationship, doesn’t want one now, and there’s a good reason for that—a deeply buried, secret reason. But when Breen disappears on a mission gone bad, Charlize’s emotional ghosts rise again. She’ll finally have to conquer her past if she ever wants to find true happiness with the man who has moved mountains to reach her…but the last time she fought her demons, they nearly destroyed her.

Content guidelines: Contains profanity, violence, and adult situations.

I just love this series!

Tracy's unique spin on vampires is something so truly refreshing, especially if you've read your fill of the same ol' vamps drinking blood, can't go in the sun, blah blah blah.

True, Tracy's vamps share some of these qualities, but the originality is just SO cool!

I'll admit, I was not a fan of Charlize at first. At all. She sort of adopted the stereotypical "playboy" role of wham bam thank you, ma'am, no man will ever tie me down (figuratively speaking), etc. But I'm really glad I stuck with the book and enjoyed how Charlize changed her tune eventually.

Similarly, I wasn't sure if I would like Breen either. He struck me as a bit of a pushover, maybe even a little aloof. But again, he sure proved himself and I'm super glad I was given the opportunity to read this latest installment of The Community series!!!

(I was given a copy of this book in consideration of my thoughts)


   





 
 



2013 BRONZE MEDAL AWARD WINNER for ROMANCE—Independent Publisher’s Book Awards (IPPY)

“If you like Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter, Lara Adrian, Larissa Ione & J.R. Ward, you have to read this new series by Tracy Tappan!”
~ Fan review

Vรขrcolac warriors kidnap a woman with a unique bloodline for their town’s repopulation program, but the willful doctor incites a mutiny, and the leader of the Warrior Class has his hands full containing the revolt…and his burning attraction for the exasperating woman.

Dr. Toni Parthen never knew she carried a unique, supernatural gene until the night she was kidnapped for it. Imprisoned in a secret underground community, she is asked to do the unthinkable: procreate with a vampire male in order to save their dying race. Headstrong and independent, Toni doesn’t cower in the face of her new, sinister reality. Instead she incites the other captured women to mutiny. But danger lurks around another corner. A ruthless demon faction is also after her powerful DNA, and she is suddenly thrust into the middle of a bloodline war. As her world explodes into violence, her only hope of survival lies with the dark, formidable vampire who wants nothing to do with her.

A rare half-vampire, half-demon, the leader of the Warrior Class, Jacken Brun, has vowed never to allow his tainted bloodlines into the community. Already a heavy burden, this oath becomes nearly impossible to bear when Toni’s special scent and infuriating troublemaking ignite a voracious hunger in him. Avoidance is key. But when war wages around Toni, led by the man who devastated her years ago, Jacken must choose between honoring his pledge or claiming a forbidden love.

Content guidelines: contains profanity, violence, and adult situations.

I LOVED THIS BOOK! (And boy, can Tracy write a hero!)

The story was so full of twists even from the very first chapter. I thought I knew the direction it was going, (because I have read my fair share of vampire novels), but I was completely wrong. That's what was so refreshing about this book. Also, the mythology surrounding the vampires is unlike any that I have read before, which was also refreshing.

I also like how not just the main characters were featured in the story. I learned about the lives of other minor characters who, hopefully, will get their own books in the series! Each male was SO alpha, and yet so devoted to his woman, family and duty. I also want to know what happens not only with the war itself, but with the singles who are still single at the end of the book!

Jacken is one of my all-time favorite heroes. He is so dark and tortured, and yet it's clear that he has so much good in him that just needs a way to come to the surface.

I would absolutely keep reading this series. Tracy is a very talented writer; not only is the book well-written in a technical sense, but she had me almost chomping at the bit to see what happened next! I found myself limiting the number of pages I read to make the book last longer, but before I knew it, I was done!

I am eagerly awaiting the next installment, and I am now a HUGE Tracy-fan!!!

**THE PUREST OF THE BREED is a finalist for the 2014 USA Best Books Award for Romance**

#1 Amazon Vampire Romance Kindle bestseller in 2014!

“I’m so happy to have found this series, which is now on my top list of best paranormal books. If you love the Black Dagger Brotherhood, then this is another series you won’t want to miss!”
~ Fan review

A Special Operations warrior saves a woman from being abducted by a sadistic demon race and discovers she’s his true mate. But as the story he’s been forced to tell her about his true nature unravels, it doesn’t seem likely that their fledgling bond will survive the lies.

A typical night turns into one of terror when Marissa Bonaventure is savagely kidnapped from her bed. Dragged into what looks like a white slavery exchange, she is helpless to escape…until a smoldering, dark-clad stranger comes from out of nowhere to save her. Marissa is brought to the safety of a quirky underground town, where she’s offered a hefty sum of money to work for a year. Saddled with a lifetime of responsibilities, she is all about earning big bucks to fulfill her dreams. The bonus—she can date the smoldering Dev Nichita. But as a string of surreal events unfolds, nothing about the community—or Dev—turns out to be what it seems.

Stubborn and arrogant, leader of the elite, Special Operations Topside Team Dev Nichita is used to getting his way. When Marissa rejects him for being a vampire, he reacts with fury and withdrawal. Then an unexpected death forces Dev to face how much he truly wants the mate of his heart. But is he too late? Or can his tenuous relationship with Marissa rise above lies, anger, an otherworldly enemy’s threats, and the vicious backlash from a century-old betrayal?

Content guidelines: contains profanity, violence, and adult situations.

I can't wait for the next book!!!

This is the second book in the series, and the way this one ended, there will definitely be a third (HOORAY!!!)

Tracy's books are kind of like a 2-for-1 deal: she doesn't just introduce a supporting character and then never
mention it again. She gives the reader an in-depth look at the supporting character(s), almost like a novella inside of the novel. This really had me invested in the collective characters and eager to read more about them, hopefully in subsequent books. She also involved the main characters from book 1 in book 2 and even continued their story. It was like catching up with old friends, and I was SO happy!

I absolutely LOVED everything that transpired between Marissa and Dev, especially their first meeting (it was pretty funny. I think you'll laugh when you read it!). His unwavering devotion to her is so endearing, and the dialogue between them truly made me FEEL.

Even though Dev is a big, tough warrior, life seems to throw him a few unexpected curve balls that shatters his world around him. I really felt for him, and if Marissa didn't comfort him, I would have jumped into that book and done it myself!

Similarly, Marissa is forced to deal with some unfortunate issues, which makes them a perfect couple.

Not many love scenes in the book, but it really didn't need them. The actual LOVE between the characters was engaging enough to read.

The story kept developing twists that kept me guessing until the end. Heck, even the last sentence of the book has me guessing about the NEXT book!

I love this series because all of the males are to-the-death devoted to their mates. Once he know who she is, he never wavers in his commitment: he doesn't ever WANT to. I love reading stories like that; where he finds his "one and only" and never lets anything come between them.

This series definitely keeps getting better. I am looking forward to at least one more in the series, but I'm also very interested in reading Tracy's other upcoming books in other romance-genres, not just paranormal!

From the author of the #1 Amazon Vampire Romance Kindle bestseller, THE PUREST OF THE BREED, comes BLOOD-BONDED BY FORCE, a thrilling, dark paranormal romance that’s un-put-downable!

“The writing is out of this world good. Ms. Tappan weaves an intricate storyline with multi-faceted characters that you can’t help but love…or hate…or hate, then love, lol.”
~ Fan review

“If you haven't already discovered the Community you are missing something truly special. The stories are brilliantly written, with great characters and exciting stories that leave you wanting more.”
~ Fan review

An appalling act of abuse bonds a vampire warrior and his mortal enemy forever as husband and wife. Rage sits as an insurmountable wedge between them…until she offers her life as penance, and the only way he can save her for a second chance at love is to risk his own life against a merciless demon race.

Tortured by a power-hungry Fey father, Pandra Parthen lashes out one fateful night and inflicts an unspeakable cruelty on Vรขrcolac warrior Thomal Costache, unknowingly binding herself to the vamp for life. Now she is stuck forever with a man consumed by the need for revenge. Thomal remains entrenched in rage while over time Pandra grows to want a real marriage. But when she is unable to break through his forbidding walls, she seeks to release him from their bond…and the only way she can do that is through her own death.

One of the most dangerous of the Vรขrcolac warriors, Mixed-blood vampire Thomal Costache oozes sex appeal on the outside while concealing darkness within. His obsessive fury is only shaken by Pandra’s imminent death, when he realizes he’s been ruled by anger for reasons far deeper than her abuse. But now Pandra is trapped where no one has ever escaped, and Thomal will have to call on all his fighting skills to save her. Dying is a given, but he’ll risk everything to get what he wants above all else: a second chance.

Content guidelines: not intended for gentle readers, this book contains profanity, violence, and intense adult situations.

This series just keeps getting better!

The third book in this series, it is darker than the other two books, but I thought the darkness fit this installment. However, similar to the other two, Tracy expertly writes essentially two stories at the same time. For example, in this story, there are really two heroes (Thomal and Nyko) and two heroines (Pandra and Faith).

The love scenes in this one are more plentiful and more sizzling than the past two books. Holy smokes!!!

I love how the males in this town are genetically forced to “be the perfect guy,” otherwise they will be in physical pain: Dedicated, loyal, faithful, protective. The masochist in me enjoyed reading about Thomal and Nyko’s respective struggles, finding it almost endearing that they need their mates THAT badly. It’s a very unique trait to give them, and I love reading about it!

Across this series, Tracy is like the conductor of a 127-piece orchestra; she introduces a new instrument (or character), gives them an awesome solo, then fades them into the background, all the while making sure their sounds can still be heard. In other words, she has the main characters from past books as minor characters in this one. Not only was I thrilled to read their continuing stories, but I feel it kept the story interesting, injecting it with fresh perspectives every now and then.

I was ECSTATIC when I found out another book is being written in this series. I LOVE IT!!! To that point, Tracy took the story in a unique direction from not just “vampire-paranormal,” but also merging with the “other-worldly-fantastical.” I can’t wait!!!
