Diego Rivera is a vampire who has lived hundreds of years, the last without his beloved wife Esperanza. Now because of his love for art, Diego owns a gallery which has given him the pleasure of getting to know an artist named Ramona Escobar.  Diego keeps his attraction to Ramona well hidden but the sensuality in her paintings calls to him.  Diego has no intention of falling for, then losing, a mortal though, and his lack of trust keeps him from exploring his feelings for her as well.

Only through her paintings does Ramona speak of the love she has for Diego. She’s dying and knows she has no future with him so she concentrates instead on making sure her ailing mother will be safe and cared for after she is gone.

Ramona becomes aware that the paintings she has replicated have been passed off as originals and her life is thrown into danger.  It soon becomes clear that the only way Diego can save Ramona is to do the one thing he swore he would never do again.

Ramona’s battle for life and Diego’s struggle to keep his distance from Ramona create many emotion filled moments in Blood Calls.  Ramona is lovely, both inside and out. I don’t find it sexy when a man claims to be enamored with one woman but then has sex with other women, regardless of his reasons. Diego did eventually become an honorable man in my eyes though. The intense and moving scenes in Blood Calls make it an exciting and poignant story.
