Author: CC Wood
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: March 14
Ava Amaris is a witch with no past. Not one that she can remember anyway.
She is cursed. For lifetimes, she’s walked the earth with no knowledge of where she came from or who she once was.
Despite the loss of her memories, Ava forges a life. She has a home, a career, and friends. Yet her heart remains shielded and cold. There is no room for love within her. Her relationships are short and casual, very rarely inspiring more than mild affection.
Until she meets Macgrath, the first man to crack the stone around her heart.
Ewan Macgrath is a vampire with no future. Not without Ava by his side.
She is his mate and his chance at peace, yet she won’t accept him. He can feel the fire inside her, the passion she denies, but Ava refuses to give in to him. To trust him.
While Ava fights a war of hearts and Macgrath searches for the maker he’s never known, a battle of a different sort arises. They must join forces in order to defeat a dark and powerful witch who seems to know everything about them, including their origins and how they came to be cursed.
Soon, Ava and Macgrath discover that their destiny was created in another time and place, binding them with magic and blood.
Once the truth is revealed, it could destroy them…or it could make them whole.
* Forevermore is the conclusion of Destined by Blood (Blood & Bone, #2.5). Part 1 of this book contains Destined by Blood if you have not read it. If you have, Part 2 is the full-length conclusion.
This story!!! Macgrath!!! This answered SO many questions that I had about how this whole world of supernatural creatures came to be. Not that I had tons of questions but as I read, more came up but all were answered.
You don’t need to read the other books necessarily in the series, but it helps you to learn who all these characters are. Plus, if you liked the Bitten series, there’s some familiar characters 😉.
Let’s talk a little bit about Macgrath. He appeared in Savannah and Rhys’ story but he sticks around for this one. And you find out why (I’m not telling!). But suffice to say, he’s definitely swoon-worthy! And Ava is a crackup. Trying to convince her body that she doesn’t find him hot. Ha! Good luck with that!
I can’t decide if I want more or just to be happy with this ending. I love this world that C.C. has created.
Born and raised in Texas, C.C. Wood writes saucy paranormal and contemporary romances featuring strong, sassy women and the men that love them. If you ever meet C.C. in person, keep in mind that many of her characters are based on people she knows, so anything you say or do is likely to end up in a book one day.
A self-professed hermit, C.C. loves to stay home, where she reads, writes, cooks, and watches TV. She can usually be found drinking coffee or wine as she spends time with her hubby, daughter, and two beagles.
