Melissa Schroeder ~ Desire by Blood ~ Review

Looking to get hooked into another amazing Vampire series? Look no further! Melissa Schroeder has done it once again! 
Terrific, complex, and exciting- strong world building, characters that grab you from the beginning, and  a story line that keeps you guessing and aroused the entire time.

Desire by Blood (By Blood, #1)
Buy it here: Amazon, B&N

A man with a secret.

Nicodemus Blackburn has seen the best and worst of mankind. Five hundred years of dealing with them teaches the vampire to be very wary of the creatures. Unfortunately, alarming events leave him no choice but to enter the world of the ton to hunt a villain. He must find a rogue vampire, one who is making his own army of bloodthirsty vampires. Searching for the villain is not the worst of his troubles. That can be laid at the feet of bluestocking Lady Cordelia Collingsworth.

A woman on a mission.

Cordelia has always been an outcast, even in her own family. She has forged her way in the world with her ability to write, and Nico Blackburn is the focus of her next article. Before she can obtain any information about the mysterious man, she is pulled headlong into a scandal that leaves her with no choice but to marry Nico—a man with dangerous secrets.

A passion that consumes them both.

Thrust into a world she knows nothing of, Cordelia finds herself falling in love with a man who claims to be a vampire. As their passion grows, so does the danger around them and Nico will have to call on all of his powers to protect the one thing he has realized he cannot live without: his opinionated, infuriating, and thoroughly delectable wife.


I knew getting into this book that I was going to like it cause I mean...come on, look at the cover and it's a Melissa Schroeder book. But I was surprised just how much I really did enjoy it. I'm a bit of a "closet" historical fan but I'm a huge PNR junkie so when I started the book I was immediately drawn into the world. While she keeps us in the time period she adds to it with the paranormal elements and keeps building. I love the world building but  I would highly recommend that readers check out Melissa Schroeder's website at http://melissaschroeder.net/extras.php to get more information on the World Guide, it has information that will help the book flow a little easier otherwise you could get a little lost at first.

Nico has compromised Ms. Cordelia and has no other choice but to marry her
, but little did he know what he was truly getting into when he met Cordelia. He doesn't truly have time to be getting married right nownot when there is a killer on the loosebut for some reason the only thing Nico can think about is Cordelia.

Murder, vengeance, love, and intrigue fuel this story
that you can't help but want to sink your teeth into. The Characters, Nico and Cordelia, light up the pages with their sexual chemistry. Not only are you sucked into their relationships ups and downs but also the camaraderie and friendly banter between him, his family and friends which is fabulous and witty. Melissa has created some amazing characters that make you crave more from them (I know I especially want to more about his cousin, Saint).

, my opinion is...
world building, fantastic characters, multiple plots, great dialogue, and perfectly paced. This is another Melissa Schroeder story that will keep you begging and pleading for more.
