"everything he loved and held dear was threatened by something he could not explain"
Baris lowered himself to the boulder in the meadow and
stared out over the vast expanse of grass and flowers. It
was a scene he had longed to be a part of and had been
until now. He had everything that he could ever dream of,
Anika his wife whom he loved with all of his heart, and
their two-year-old son Thale.
Falling in love with Anika had been a bonus, for he had
never expected anything more than a business relationship,
he never expected to find love in the true meaning of the
word at all. Four years earlier, Rhiannon one of Anika's
clan, and the Vectors had formed a relationship. Her clan
was witches and "Bleeders" -- their bodies produced
abnormally high levels of iron that could prove fatal if it
was not bleed off. Use of Wiccan magic increased the
already high content of iron in their blood making the need
to be bled even stronger. The Vectors needed blood, which
made it an equitable situation for both parties.
When Baris first approached Anika it was to satisfy his
needs, but Anika had other plans. Whenever she needed to be
bled, she had sought out Baris over all the other Vectors
slowly chipping away at his heart. He had witnessed the
deep love and devotion between Jaeger, another Vector and
Rhiannon and this was something he wanted for himself. So
it was a monumental day when he realized that he was in
love with Anika. The last four years had been filled with
happiness and contentment ... until now. Now everything he
loved and held dear was threatened by something he could
not explain, and didn't want to accept.
From the Heart is the sequel to A GIFT OF BLOOD. I waited
a long time for this story and was not disappointed.
JennaKay manages to spin a tale of Fantasy, Magic and
Romance that grabs you and holds you from the very first
page. This is another book for my ever increasing "Keeper
Shelf" Although this story stands alone, to familiarize
your self with the Vectors and the Bleeders, I would still
recommend reading A GIFT OF BLOOD first. Both books are
