SYNOPSIS

A slow-burning descent into darkness and desire…

Betrayed. Imprisoned. Alone.

For decades I have suffered as a reluctant blood donor. Caged like an animal and drained of my strength to enrich the Radcliffs and their winery. I’d forsaken all hope of escape—until the winemaker’s daughter returns to the family’s estate.

A drop of my immortal blood is all it takes to activate her psychic talents. Now we’re connected, and all that remains is convincing her to seek me in the darkness.

Bribe. Seduce. Deceive.

To claim she’s too young is an understatement. But a starving man doesn’t have the luxury of waiting for fruit to ripen. I’ve awakened her gifts, and now it’s her turn to replenish me.

I will have my fill of the winemaker’s daughter. Then I will take revenge on her family.

Author’s note: Please be aware that this book contains scenes of violence, gore, and rough sexual contact, as well as an age-gap pairing spanning literal centuries. If you find drastically inappropriate older man/younger woman romances squicky, do yourself a favor and skip this book.

This was such an utterly unique twist on the usual vampire story!

The characters were pretty awesome too and I found this so refreshing and captivating.

At one point though, I did pick up a stuffie and throw it across my room in a fit of rage because of her dick-head of a father.

*sighs* This happens sometimes…I get way too caught up.

MARIAH

I really liked this lass and feel so bad for her.

She’s just lost her mother to cancer and until she turns 18 in a few weeks, she’s been shipped off to stay with her father.

A father she’s actually never met…and his skank-ass wife and two spoiled arse kids.

Anyway, she decides to try to get along with them the best she can – points to her because I would have drop-kicked these motherfuckers the first time they caught an attitude.

Her mother had a gift – she was clairvoyant. But Mariah never really felt that she had it until she arrived at her mum’s childhood home and somehow manages to dream walk and meet a sexy AF dude.

Over the next week or so she starts to discover all kinds of new talents…and feelings for this sexy dream guy but there is something waaaay off with her new family.

WILL

So this lad has basically been locked in some creep fucker’s basement for the last 20 years. Being drained and starved and just barely kept alive.

And when I say ‘lad’ I mean hot vampire, lol.

Unbeknownst to the craptastic family, he is able to astral project. And that’s how he meets Mariah for the first time.

He discovers that she’s actually quite powerful. And so a plan of escape begins to form. 

A plan where he uses her in order to escape and drains her dry for strength.

But then he starts to catch feels, lol.

SEX SCENES

As you may well know…I’m a horny girl. All. The. Time. So I kinda wished there was more sex!

I kiss a line from her knee to her inner thigh. When my lips finally reach her pussy, she whimpers. I spread her wide so I can see all of her. My God, it has been far too long since I’ve come face-to-face with a woman’s body, and hers is beyond luscious. As I touch my tongue to her clit, I’m dismayed that my sense of taste is somewhat dulled in the twilight realm. Still, I can tell she’s delicious. I don’t want to waste a single drop of her honey. I focus my attention on the tiny, stiffened bud that brings her so much pleasure. She moans, her heartbeat cantering along as I swirl my tongue against her. I try a few different approaches until I discern what she likes and then continue doing that until she’s practically bucking. As her breathing becomes erratic, I keep my pace consistent. “Oh God, Will…” She tugs at my hair. “Fuck…” I lick and suck her clit even as she shakes and twitches, until she goes still and silent, right before she moans. As soon as she’s finished riding out her orgasm, I stand and capture her open mouth. She tastes herself on me. Pulling her close, I grind my cock against her so there’s no doubt in her mind how badly I want her. My hands map the landscape of her skin, just as her hands find and squeeze my ass. “I want you,” she whispers. “Please.” I feel almost lightheaded as I reach for the button on my pants. I haven’t touched my own cock in years. Pulling it out, it becomes a hard, demanding thing between us that commands Mariah’s attention. She wraps her fingers around the shaft. I groan. “Your eyes are glowing,” she says. I close them. “Does it frighten you?”“No,” she says. I kiss her hard. Thrusting into her fist, I feel like I could come from this slight contact alone. It’s not the same as if she were touching my physical body, but it’s a thousand times better than my own fist. Yes, I could indeed come just like this— But I’m dying to get inside her. 

FINAL THOUGHTS on BLOOD and WINE by Margot Scott

This was such a great twist on the usual PNR and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The story was great and the characters were realistic. It did have a couple of scenes that may be triggering though, so just a wee word of warning.

I didn’t find it dark exactly but I tend to have a slightly skewed sense of what’s actually ‘dark’, lol.
