"Her survival depends on the man—and the erotic sex—of her dreams"
Blood Ties by Cathryn Fox takes place in the year 3020, on
Dari Blake has spent her long life living in a sheltered
commune, filled with guardians dedicated to keeping her safe
and ignorant of her past and true nature. She believes that
she has a rare blood disorder, which keeps her from aging.
She has never known love, except for the man that comes to
her in her dreams. Dari has no idea that her psychic
abilities and her ability to reproduce are more powerful and
more dangerous to her than she could have ever imagined.
Mikel Sare lives an ocean and many miles from Dari. His one
purpose in life is to keep Dari safe from Grayson. Grayson
created the Nallie, half vampire and half human, years ago,
to use as puppets in his efforts to gain control of Earth.
Dari does not know that she does not have a blood disorder,
but is one of only two living Nallie.
Grayson and his alien vampires have detected Dari and will
stop at nothing to take her. Her body is most important to
them, because they want to use her as a breeder, to create
more Nallie soldiers. Mikel and Dari must join together, in
every way possible, if they are to survive and finally
Cathryn Fox has written a true jewel in Blood Ties. From
page one, I knew that I would need to finish this book in
one sitting, and I did so. Ms. Fox created a new twist to
vampires, one that I thoroughly enjoyed. Dari, a powerful
being with the ability to do anything she wants, including
the ability to be evil and do harm; is actually an honest,
sweet, and giving person who has lived her life in
seclusion, with no idea of who or what she truly is. In the
beginning of the book, Dari is an innocent, and that
innocence is sweet in the face of what is to come. Once
Dari learns the truth and gains her powers, she is still
sweet and honest, just not so innocent! Mikel is also a
good man, with the power and ability to be evil. I was
touched by his deep love for Dari, despite the fact that
they have never truly met. His dedication to her and her
safety is a testament to the kind of man that he is. The
passion between these two, and later between them and two
more, was so hot, it jumped off the page and scorched me. I
highly recommend Blood Ties and have added Cathryn Fox to my
must read list!

Her survival depends on the man—and the erotic sex—of her dreams.
A Claimed story
Dari Blake has spent her life sheltered from the world, believing she has a rare, genetic blood disorder that prevents her from aging. Her overprotective guardians are her only company, except for the mysterious man who enters her nightmares, soothing them into erotic dreams. Only he seems to have the power to help her shut out the cacophony of voices in her head.
Alone in his English castle, Mikel Sare has one mission in life: to protect Dari, his soul mate. Unbeknownst to her, she isn’t suffering from a rare disorder, she is a rare creature herself. She, like Mikel, is a Nallie. Part human, part vampire, one of only two left in the world. Her womb, and her psychic ability, are more powerful—and more dangerous—than she could ever imagine.
Now the alien vampires who created their kind are back, killing everyone in their path as they seek to take control of her child-bearing body. To defeat them, Mikel and Dari must join together—mind, body, blood and soul—in a ritual that will exponentially increase their power.
