Blood Kisses (Dark Blood Book 1) by Scarlet Blackwell

Prepare yourself for the nasty, smutty, filth of vampires and a human that’ll leave you completely breathless and yearning for more! Blood Kisses marks the start of a new series from author Scarlet Blackwell.

From the blurb:

“You act like you hate me and I don’t know why. All I did was love you. It wasn’t a crime.”

Ten years ago, the vampire Severin fell in love with the mortal Nikolaus in Vienna and abandoned him, rather than take his life.

He and his friend, Istvan, are invited to the vampire king Emil’s castle where he finds out that Nikolaus now belongs to Emil. Jealousy eats Severin alive. The twin lusts of blood and sex are intertwined for all vampires, ruling their lives. The only way to possess Nikolaus now seems to be to accept an invitation to share Emil’s pet for one night. But Emil is a despot, ruling all vampires with an iron fist. There is long, painful history between Severin and his maker, and a strange kind of relationship between the placid Istvan and the cruel Emil.

Storm clouds are gathering on the horizon, threatening all their lives. Severin can run, but if he takes Nikolaus with him, Emil will hunt them down and kill them. What’s a vampire in love supposed to do?

A dark, steamy m/m tale of unrequited love and longing, and vampire power games.

Previously published and re-edited with brand new covers.

Tatted_book_freak's Review:

Omfg!!! I loved Scarlett’s filthiness in her previous books, but Blood Kisses is the icing on every single cake ever needed! And, in the perfect era with the ideal genre!! 

Severin and Nickolaus were to die for (pun intended). After ten years of pining and some questionable extracurriculars, their reunion was explosive, even if years later. 

Excellent beginning to what can only become an intoxicating battle of good versus evil, with lots of filthy smuttiness in between!
