Forbidden Blood ~ Anna Wineheart
On the run and exhausted, Oriel sneaks into an obscure mansion, rummaging for food. The coven is after his blood, and all he wants is safety. What he doesn’t know: a vampire lives there.
Three centuries ago, a human lover betrayed Seb. When the chef in his mansion quits, Seb is left hanging… until he finds a thief in his garage. He captures Oriel, only to discover that Oriel needs protection. And the one thing Seb wants? A purpose to his life again.
Oriel sets one condition when Seb hires him: Seb cannot drink his blood. Except Oriel’s blood tempts him from a distance, tempts him in bed. If he tastes it, he’ll be addicted, completely dependent on Oriel. And the hotter Oriel kindles his desire, the harder it is for Seb to stay away.
