Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two vampire coalitions:
Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors…
Hot-blooded and hard-edged, Tristan Santiago has an uncanny ability to see beneath the surface - a skill that serves him well as the Guardians' region commander. But when a deadly plot against his fellow vampires is uncovered, he must turn to the one woman he can't read: the beautiful yet mysterious Roxanne Reynolds, whose sensual presence soothes his tormented memories.
Roxy had put love before duty once before, with devastating results. But to root out a dangerous traitor in their midst, she must put her faith in Santiago, the one man skilled enough to break through her defenses. Posing as lovers, Santiago and Roxy work side by side - and discover a powerful craving that threatens to consume them both.

When Roxy's tells Santiago she is Pregnant!!
I laughed at times
WOW Seduced by Blood is bk4 in the Sweetblood series and it is a another faced paced, hot sensual romance. Its full of suspense and action packed. Sexy Love making scenes. This is Tristan Santiago's Regional Commander of the Guardian Vampire in the North Pacific U.S. and Canada. Santiago as he is called has been a prominent character in the Sweetblood series from bk 1 Bonded by Blood. He is an overbearing Alpha male always barking out orders and demands. The kind of Alpha male we love to hate. At times he is downright funny in his old world ways. He meets Agency Tracker teacher Roxanne Reynolds commonly know as Roxy. Roxy has been sent on assignment to the Pacific Northwest to help her friend Lily from bk3 "Tempted by Blood" do some special tracking. Roxy taught Lily centuries ago when she was at the Tracker Academy. Roxanne and Santiago spark flames as soon as they meet. The two have to work together to trace and find the Darkblood Villain Ventra Capelli. Ventra has outsmarted the Guardians and gotten away from them one two many times. Now she has caused an almost fatal attack on several of the Guardian causing almost fatal injuries. One of those Guardians is our hero Dom from bk one. The Agency of Guardians knows now that they have a traitor in there mist. A Guardian must be telling the DB of there plans. Roxy agrees to help sniff out the traitor and to help track Ventura. Let me just say that Ventura is one of the best written villains I have read in a long time. She is the type of female villain who is smart but very much deranged mentally. She is diabolic and meticulous in her planning of obtaining Sweetbloods and bringing down the Guardians. I love to hate her. The author Laurie London has a great knack for writing strong women characters weather they are the heroin's of the story or in this case the villain. As the story proceeds its not long before Santiago and Roxy find themselves in denial of there love for one another. They have been pretending to be married, which has lead them into very hot erotic and sensual loving making. Which leads to a wonderful relationship of trust and unconditional love!! I Love The Sweetblood series and I can't wait for bk 5 which I think will be Mitch's story. I Highly Recommend the entire series. All of the books have been 5 stars. I will miss reading it!!
Really the narrator for this series needs to take lesson, if she is going to be the voice of this series. Had she done a better job of establishing voices with book one, the series would flow better. The story is better than I thought it would be after the slow start. It would have been nice if the author put a little more effort into building some depth into Roxy. She starts off interesting then just has her fumbling along after the big bad boss Santiago. Can't say I have much more interest in the series unless she picks up another narrator and adds a little more edge to the story.
