Blood of the Maple

Title:Blood of the Maple

Pub Date:04/11/2011
A seduction-gone-wrong leaves vampire Parker Hollis with a new vegetarian lifestyle and on the run from a vengeful witch. Moving to small-town Maggie's Grove, Parker meets a redheaded dryad with green, leafy blood that draws him in a way he hasn't experienced in decades. His new neighbor smells divine, and it isn't long before craving gives in to need.
In a unique community of supernaturals, tree-loving outcast Amara Schwedler has never quite fit in. She's scarred by a traumatic incident and feared by the local townsfolk. She's convinced Parker will look elsewhere for a mate once he discovers she's not one of the O-positive set, and can't believe it when Parker finds her irresistible.
When the witch who's been plaguing Parker's life discovers the newfound attraction between Parker and Amara, she takes out her anger on the town. Can the supernaturals of Maggie's Grove accept Amara and band together in time to withstand the assaults of the enraged witch?

How to explain this book.....Wow...There really isn't a bunch of word that come to mind. I really didn't want to put it down. This book combines everything into one. You have your Vampire who is curse but a witch to only drink "Leafy Blood", you have your love sick witch turned into god knows what searching for her lost Vamp. Then of course you have your sweet love interest Amara....Ahhhhhh....a bit naive, but one hell of a woman....LOL
Not to mention the werewolves, the driads , and all the other "creatures" that live in that wonderful town of Maggie's Grove....No wonder Parker's Best friend the now Ghost said to move there!
What I can say from this book is every single page of this book is full of action! From the get go, this story has you and doesn't let you down. Further more it eludes to a future book, which it would be awesome.
I enjoyed many parts of the book my favorite had to be the roses doing the macarena, I could just picture a bunch of rose bushes up and dancing in my head...LOL
Or when Parker was left talking to the tree alone...that was a cute moment as well.
Totally an amazing job done by this author. The Characters are well thought out, the scenes are wonderful and the story is brilliant.
