Marcel is a powerful wizard. He has contacted the leader of the vampires Jean Bellaiche to try and form an alliance against Pascal Serrier - a powerful dark wizard.  Alian Magnier is the wizard Marcel sends to meet with the vampires. Orlando St. Clair is the vampire chosen by Jean to meet with Alian. There is an immediate attraction between Orlando and Alian. When Alian offers his blood as a sign of good faith, something magical happens between them - a strong connection forms. Orlando can feel Alian’s power flowing through him. The vampires and wizards discover that the unique and powerful bond that has formed between Orlando and Alian may happen for other wizard/vampire pairs. One effect of the connection is the vampire’s ability to withstand the sun when he feeds from the wizard. This could make their alliance that much stronger. As they work to find suitable matches between their races, Serrier is planning his next attack. 

Alliance in Blood is an emotionally charged story. Orlando’s insecurity and his need for acceptance and love is tangible. Alian is so good to and for him. They make a very loving and passionate couple. Orlando’s past is filled with violence and pain. The images he recalls are heartbreaking. There is a scene in Alliance in Blood that brought tears to my eyes because of its heart- wrenching poignancy. Alliance in Blood is dark, erotic, and very well written. I love the concept of this story. It’s very cool and very different.  Alliance in Blood is the beginning of what promises to be a terrific series.
