"Entertaining and highly erotic..."
Carla Ruiz knows that her genius IQ has done little to
protect her from a broken heart. Betrayed by her ex-lover,
Carla's genetic research has been stolen and sold to the
competition. Carla has dedicated years to the company that
now views her as a liability. Stunned by her abrupt
dismissal Carla sets out to start anew. She owns all of
the rights to her medical findings, but there are rivals at
the company who will stop at nothing to get their hands on
her "Revelations" research.
The Black Queen, Queen of the Unblessed rules Suicide
City. It is a secretive place full of vampires, shape-
shifters, and succubae. The Queen has also heard of
Carla's breakthrough and is very interested in her
findings. Carla's discovery may lead to a cure for genetic
diseases...a cure that would allow the Queen to walk in the
sun once more and bear the child of her beloved.
The Queen wastes no time dispatching "Les Deux Anges" to
retrieve Carla and bring her to Suicide City. The
seductive powers of Jasper the vampire and Hunter the
werewolf are legendary. Under the influence of their
sexual persuasion, Carla is guaranteed to arrive safely and
willingly. Carla's attraction to "The Angels of Desire" is
immediate and the feeling is mutual when the three succumb
to scorching hot passion. Carla has trouble believing that
Hunter and Jasper's feelings are genuine and she suspects
they are using her desire against her. Determined to guard
her heart, Carla shuts down her emotions, but her two
escorts are just as determined to claim her as their own.
As their enemies close in and danger surrounds them, Carla
must find the courage to have faith in herself and her
lovers. There are many who stand to gain from her failure
and Carla's self doubt may cause her and the Queen to lose
everything they care about the most.
BLINDFOLD ME is without a doubt an entertaining and highly
erotic story. That said the story does get bogged down in
spots by awkward pacing and the multiple characters' POV.
With characters like "The Black Queen" and "The White
Knight" the chess imagery seems a little hokey, but I
applaud Morrigan's ambitious attempt to work several
different elements into the story. The result is a hot
multicultural paranormal tale with a surprisingly wild
ending. Readers looking for something different and
unpredictable may want to give BLINDFOLD ME a try.
Reviewer's note: This book contains elements that some
readers may find objectionable: Explicit sexual content,
same sex (m/m), ménage (m/f/m), polyamory, light bondage,
violence, and anal intercourse.
