Product Description

What’s a girl to do when she learns she’s the key to breaking a centuries-old family curse? Become dangerously intimate with a jaw-dropping vision of male hotness hiding a secret agenda of his own.
Nothing could be simpler.
Or is it?
When primary school teacher, Laura Dantonville, learns of her family's dark ancestral legacy, she’s propelled into a secretive underworld ruled by magic, murder and mystery, and stalked by vampire clans who would do anything to possess her. For her protection, she’s assigned a guardian not knowing that part of her role in ending the ancient curse that has plagued her family for centuries, involves having a child with him.

And she has one day to make a decision.

With only five years left in servitude to his sire, Alec Munro reluctantly accepts to act as Laura’s guardian or risk remaining in slavery forever. But can he maintain a platonic relationship between them when something far more intimate is required to end his sire’s family curse?

With time running out, Laura must decide to either accept Alec or allow her vampire-hating detective boyfriend to end the legacy his way – by eliminating the undead side of her family.
After all, they’re not human are they?

Being unable to age is just the beginning.

Enjoy this action-filled sexy paranormal romance that will have you laughing aloud one moment and biting your finger nails in the next.

About the Author

Tima Maria Lacoba is a former ancient historian and archaeologist who accidentally smashed a 3,000 Egyptian vase while on her first dig! Her supervisor made her glue it back together again. It took a week. From there she went on to specialise in late Roman-British archaeology, and the military forts along Hadrian's Wall, because buildings don't smash as easily. Now, she's combined her love of history with another passion-story-telling-to create a dark tale of Roman soldiers cursed by a British witch, and must wait two-thousand years for their redemption. Between bouts of writing, she can be found in the kitchen baking yet another chocolate recipe. This activity is responsible for forming more gothic, urban fantasy stories in her mind for future books.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kitty Muse Book Reviews 10 January 2015
By Kitty - Published on Amazon.com

“Happy 50th Birthday, Laura!”
And what does Laura Dantonville get from her favorite aunt Judy?
A serpent ring, a cursed legacy, and a vampire of her own.
And if that isn’t enough, she has no way of turning this birthday “present” down without endangering herself, her family, and those that lie beyond in the shadows of the dark.
She is Ingenii, Bloodgifted, a human with attributes in her blood that make her irresistible to vampires. If she didn’t have a Guardian, she would be setting herself up to become a pawn in the evil game of those who coveted the power of the Brethren. And without the ruling authority of those who governed the hidden society of vampires, the living would be without protection.
Enter Alec Munro, the vampire who was the Protector of Laura’s Aunt Judy, who is now beyond the age of interest to the power-hungry.
He is gorgeous, fun to be with…and not Laura’s first pick for companionship. That role goes to Matt Sommers, police investigator. Coincidentally, he is also looking into mysterious deaths in the area—the results of desanguination. Laura’s caught between the new society she is now part of and disclosing to Matt all that she knows.
In the middle of this, her mortal world is turned upside down as she learns much more of what her parents and her aunt have withheld from her for her entire life.
If someone ever wanted to turn the clock back, I’m sure it would be Laura…

This was a complex, lively, non-stop adventure. I found myself thinking about the story when I was away from the book, and could hardly wait till I could open the pages again. Obsessed? Perhaps. In love? Is that possible? All I know is that this book invaded my senses and stayed there from page one until the end.
In this story is just about everything that could make a reader happy: a story that never disappoints; romance, mystery, murder, and intrigue; characters that make their homes in one’s heart; and an ending that leads straight into the next book in the series, Bloodpledge.
I for one am going to get started on the next book as soon as I can.

5.0 out of 5 stars New writer to watch out for! 8 November 2013
By BarbarinaS - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am biased! It is set in Australia and I can relate to the where and when so I went into this wanting to like it. I did and it is a very good effort from a new writer. It is not perfect and I believe the plot can be tightened as many things happen too quickly like the boyfriend who seems a nice guy turning out to be a very nasty if fangless. The build up was a little clumsy in this instance and also in other places but over all there is something in this that connects the reader and fascinates enough to want the next book as soon as possible.

I totally believe this writer will get better and I can't wait to see where Laura and her vampire Alec take us. The plot is an intriguing idea, the book is thought out and well-written so make the effort as I think you will be hard put not to enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vampires, history, and everything in between.... 11 February 2015
By joy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was extremely well written. Tima deftly wove the history of the characters throughout the book. As a reader, I was immersed in the background. I found myself on the edge of my seat when reading how the main characters became inducted into the vampire world. The history brought a edge of intimacy between the reader and the characters. In knowing how they manifested into their now, it made me as a reader more invested into their current story.
This story gave readers a new facet to the vampire story. Tima created her own rules and regulations for the characters. I will admit some did not like the restraint put upon them and flexed their super natural powers to get out of Tima's grasp. Tima did a fantastic job keeping her characters in check, but allowing them to grow into someone the readers connected with. I am very excited to read the next installment of this series

5.0 out of 5 stars Deftly woven tale of myth, legend, action, and romance 9 December 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Bloodgifted starts out with a prologue that takes us back to 263 AD when the battle between two warring parties, the Pictish and the Romans culminates in a curse, thus creating the first vampires and the bloodgifted.

Author Tima Maria Lacoba spins an exciting tale of romance and intrigue as her heroine, Laura, comes into her bloodgift and the vampire race grapples at a chance to shift the power. This story is an exciting recount of the struggle between two factions of vampires, those who want to maintain order and integrate with human society and those who see humans only as food to be devoured.

Trapped in the middle, Laura struggles to survive the violent power-plays between these volatile factions, who both consider her the winner’s prize. To spice things up further, Laura must deal with the rivalry between her current boyfriend Matt, a tenacious detective, and the irresistible Alec, a vampire from the new underworld she is just discovering. But there is more! An obsessive stalker is on the loose . . .

If you love action packed urban fantasy or paranormal romance, and have a taste for history, myth, and legends, you should definitely try this story.
