Her whole life it had just been the two of them. Before her mother's last breath, she gave Camille the information she had craved her entire life: the identity of her father. Daring to contact him, Camille was welcomed by an entire family she never knew existed. But nothing comes without a price, as she discovers when her family claims a legendary heritage tracing back to a Centaur touched by Zeus.
As she learns the secrets of her Centaur bloodline, she is drawn into a forbidden love with Drake. Her family acknowledges her life may be the blood debt required to pay for her mother's transgressions. The same person who once held her mother captive, and forced her into decades of hiding, now controls Camille. Her only chance is to seek a piece of her mother's past that will win her freedom and the life she desperately desires.

The audio version is better than the print version because you can relax and fully imagine the story instead of having part of your focus on text. It also allows you to listen while driving. Huge plus when devouring books.
I like the way the characters were developed and the idea of a different SciFi creature/family.
This author rocks and I would highly recommend reading her other works! You wont regret it.
I loved all the mythology tales! The way the narrator (Teri Schnaubelt) read the story also made it more exciting! It was like listening to the movie. All the different voices for the different characters,. I could almost see the entire book as it happened!
2 things were most memorable for me. The 1st is when Gage showed up in Florida with Bianca & Drake to save/help Camille. The 2nd most memorable part was when Grandmother had told Gage & Camille that she just killed both Drake & Bianca, thus removing the competition! WOW!!!
Yes, I have listened to Teri's narrating before & enjoyed it too!
It is a book I would like to have listened to straight thru, but it is a very long book and sleep had to come, so I finished it the next day.
Excellent book! I thought when I read description, that I might like this book. I LOVED this book! Well written storyline & plot mixing past & present together. I look forward to the next book in this series! Good job to both Author & Narrator!
I'd definitely listen to Blood Debt again! Nancy Straight is such a well written author that gives you such an imaginative love story, Teri Schnaubelt did an amazing job Narrating she truly brought everything to life.
What wasn't memorable moment in this book? Drake and Cami's late night visit were some of my favorites.
This was my first and it was absolutely wonderful to listen to
Most definitely! I listened while I did all my daily activities! I just couldn't stop.
Even though I've read this series listening to it made me fall in love all over again with the characters.
The storyline and characters are wonderful. This was an easy book to get sucked into and I loved it from start to finish.
Cami has lived her life essentially in the dark, until her mother passes and her world turns into an alternate universe. She begins to learn the secrets her mother has tried desperately to keep and meets family she did not know existed. She is thrown into a world where her hopes and dreams are twisted into her worst nightmare. She is sure she has been sucked into an alternate reality, but has she?
Centaur legend has begun to sink into her, a life she does not appreciate not having been raised with the "proper" way to act, date, live.....her destiny is up in the air and she is left wondering if it is worth seeking out.
Cami is a strong, determined young woman who has her mind set on love, life and integrity. She resists the Centaur way of life at every turn with the exception of acceptance of her new family.
I love the romantic story meshed into this book. The friendships are strong, the characters determined/strong and personalities are so well developed, I could not stop listening. I cannot wait to see where this story goes. The author has done an amazing job tying centaur legend to the gods, giving this "race" their own skills.
I read this in e-book years ago, while listening to this audio book, I was able to really appreciate this story so much more. The narrator has given this book true life.
Five fangs from Paranormal Romance and Authors That Rock.
This story starts with Camille's mother dying leaving her mourning and alone with the name of a father she has never met. The only family Cami has ever had is her mother and she feels very alone. Cami really wants to know about her father but is hesitant to call him. The author Nancy Straight really managed to convey how difficult the decision to call and the actual call would be.
My attention was caught from the first chapter and as the story builds with Cami meeting her father his wife and five brothers I found I could not put it down. There seems to be something different about all of them.
There is a lot of mystery about Cami's birth. Why did her mother never reveal her father's name? What is the story behind the items found in a box in her mother's room. How can her step mother accept her so completey and what does she know that she won't reveal to Cami.
Cami starts to learn about her roots which go back to a Centaur touched by Zeus, meets Drake and is instantly attracted to him although he is engaged. Discovers she has a grandmother who is unstable and through it all is trying to understand the rules that govern her new existence.
There are many unanswered questions at the end of this book and I know I am going to listen to the complete series.
I do have to applaud the narrator Teri Schnaubelt for an exellent job with all voices and making the story flow. An audio book can be made or destroyed by the narrator and Teri created voices for all the characters that were instantly recognizable.
Highly recommend this series to anyone that likes paranormal romance and mystery.
I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast
I am open to reviewing quality products.
This is a fresh new take on paranormal reads. Not a lot of centaurs out there, not that I have read. This takes elements of mythology and wraps them into a modern setting. Really fantastic world building.
Cami is a great character. I love that even though she comes from humble beginning she is pretty solid in her background. To be thrown into a suddenly rich lifestyle but to keep yourself, is tough. I like that she wasn't letting it change who she was as a person.
The romance is really well done. At first I was a bit wary, cause he was attached to another lady. Fortunately this is a mixed narrative and you get to see how it shapes up.
This book has a great supporting cast, many of then take over the narrative for a bit. It is a little jumpy at times, but it helps get make a fuller story. There are a lot of elements to keep track of throughout. The mixed narrative helps you understand everything and keeps the story pooping.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Teri Schnaubelt. She does a fabulous job with all the voices and accents. There was so much to do, with all those narratives. She keeps it consistent and distinctive. Her pace is swift and really helps move the story along. I enjoyed her energy and am eager to hear her in the rest of the series.
I am very eager to see where the story goes next, This is definitely a series that is connected and needs to be read in order. This book ends on a happy note, not a cliffhanger but not a happy ever after.
Disclosure - I received a copy of this book in exchange for and honest review. All thoughts, opinions and ratings are my own.
This audio book was lovely! The characters were well written and true to themselves. Never haven read about Centaurs before the back story was so interesting. The romance between Cami and Drake was good. The narrator did a good job.
