Blurb: The Blue Bloods have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shape-shift, and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even those immortal vampires, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, part of the best-selling Blue Bloods series, author Melissa de la Cruz offers three tantalizing stories that delve deep into the love lives of the all-powerful vamps (and their Red Blood friends) from New York’s Upper East Side. Might a witchy new girl help cure Oliver’s broken heart? How did Allegra fall in love with a human? Will Schuyler and Jack finally be bonded?
Romantic and sensual, Bloody Valentine reveals the undying love, the hope and devastation, and the lust and longing that have defined the Blue Bloods throughout history. Prepare to be swept off your feet.
I think the story I loved the most out of this novella was Oliver’s. The poor guy just wanted to be with his love. We did get a glimpse into the witches from Witches of East End. I haven’t read those books yet, but meeting Freya makes me want to. Allegra’s story is heart breaking. I’ve never been one to figure out why you can’t choose for love. I know the circumstances, but still. Also, Schuyler still seems to annoy me. She bugged me in Misguided Angel, and does so in this one. Although, I appreciate the craftiness in making her dress. That made my crafty side smile. 😀 Lost in Time is next, and was one of my faves, so I’ll be happy to finally get to jump into it next weekend.
