“She was supposed to kill vampires, not save them. Those were the rules. That was the lore.”

A rare and powerful witch whose blood is lethal to vampires, Leila has always viewed her serryn abilities as a curse. After seeing her mother slaughtered as a child, Leila longs for a safe, quiet life.

That wish is shattered by Caleb Dehain – a vampire with a dark past and a darker heart. The most feared serryn hunter of his generation, Caleb now needs the help of one of the witches he despises to save his dying brother.

A serryn who has no reason to help him. Except that he has her sister.

Caleb and Leila are each other’s worst nightmare – but the slow-burning spark of attraction between them is undeniable. Will Leila’s blood be his damnation? Or could her kiss be his salvation?

Combining sizzling passion and dark, sinfully seductive vampire heroes, Lindsay J. Pryor's writing is an exciting new find for those who love paranormal romance and urban fantasy.

If you're a fan of J.R Ward, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Lara Adrian, Jeaniene Frost, Kelley Armstrong, Christine Feehan or Kresley Cole then you'll love Lindsay J. Pryor's books too.

Praise for Blood Roses
'Blood Roses was an awesome continuation of the Blackthorn series. Not only are Pryor’s characters and fathomlessly dark love stories fabulous, but her continual world building of Blackthorn blows me away. Blood Roses is a highly recommended read!

‘It pulls no punches, its heroes are on the edge, and its sex scenes are off the charts.'

‘I felt as much a part of the emotional rollercoaster the characters themselves. Needless to say, I devoured the book in a single sitting! After reading the first two books of the Blackthorn series I am definitely on the Lindsay Pryor fan bandwagon!’

‘This is a deliciously dark book. This isn't your typical happily ever after story, and I think that's what drew me to the series in the first place. This is the second book I've read, and I honestly think it's better than the first.’ RomFan Reviews

‘…paranormal romance mixed with urban fantasy the way I like it - clever world-building, intense characters and no easy options for them to take.’ Nocturnal Book Reviews

Unrated Critic Reviews for Blood Roses


I’ve read enough books over the years to be able to sniff out, or at least suspect, most plot twists but I did not see this one coming at all and, once I’d picked my jaw up off the floor, I fell in love with the book even more.
