Pakt des Blutes

Blutspartnerschaft | Buch 2

Fortsetzung zu Allianz des Blutes
Buch 2 in der Serie - Blutspartnerschaft

Magier und Vampire haben eine Allianz geschmiedet, die auf Partnerschaften des Blutes und der Magie gründet. Sie hoffen, damit dem Krieg gegen die dunklen Magier eine entscheidende Wendung geben zu können. Einige Partnerschaften sind ebenso erfolgreich, wie die zwischen Alain Magnier und Orlando St. Clair. Auf andere trifft das nicht zu. Es kommt zu Streit, Vorwürfen und sogar offener Feindschaft zwischen den Partnern, obwohl sie durch ein gemeinsames Ziel verbunden sind.

Thierry Dumont ist entschlossen, dem Beispiel seines besten Freundes Alain zu folgen. Er ist mit dem Vampir Sebastien Noyer eine Partnerschaft eingegangen. Obwohl er sich, so kurz nach dem gewaltsamen Tod seiner Frau, in der Nähe des Vampirs – eines Mannes – unbehaglich fühlt. Aber sie stellen fest, dass ihre gemeinsame Verzweiflung die beste Voraussetzung ist, um einen Bund zu schließen. Thierry und Sebastien stellen den Schutz ihres Partners über alles und unterstützen sich vorbehaltlos.

Durch die Erfolge der Allianz bestärkt, beschließen das Oberhaupt der Magier und der Chef de la Cour der Vampire, ihr neues Bündnis der Öffentlichkeit bekannt zu machen. Sie erhoffen sich dadurch zusätzliche Unterstützung in ihrem Kampf gegen die dunklen Magier, die das Leben auf der Erde in seiner bisherigen Form zu vernichten drohen. Aber die Allianz erleidet auch Rückschläge, denn die Partnerschaften bringen nicht nur Vorteile mit sich, sondern gefährden auch das magische Gleichgewicht der Erde. Und diese Gefahr könnte sich als größer erweisen, als der Krieg selbst.

Jesse McKinnon heard him in a dream from clear across the country, and that dream sent him on a six-year search to find Stevie. Once they meet, they think everything will work out and Jesse will help Stevie cope.

Stevie does improve immensely, but a disgruntled coworker of Jesse's conspires with Stevie's estranged but politically powerful father to keep Stevie and Jesse apart with trumped-up legal charges claiming Jesse sexually abused the boy. Jesse must watch helplessly as Stevie loses all the advances he's made.

If it wasn't for his growing relationship with his coworker Drew Ferguson, Jesse knows he wouldn't have the strength to fight for his rights and Stevie's future. Drew just might be the real thing, but with the very real possibility of serving jail time for a crime he didn't commit, Jesse's hopes for a future with Drew might be doomed.

I decreti di un conquistatore non possono separare Aillil Callaghan dal suo retaggio scozzese. Indossa con orgoglio il tartan del suo clan – ora proibito – aspettando il giorno in cui diventerà Laird, restaurando così il buon nome della sua famiglia e combattendo per liberare la Scozia dalla tirannia inglese. Un inglese nella sua casa? Un abominio! Eppure, il tutore che suo padre ha assunto per i suoi fratelli può avere qualcosa da insegnare anche all’erede dei Callaghan.

Il violinista e letterato Malcolm Byerly ha lasciato il Kent spinto dalla paura, cercando solo un impiego tranquillo, menti curiose a cui insegnare e un luogo ove mantenere celati i suoi segreti. Non sa che tra i suoi studenti vi sarà anche il fratello maggiore dei ragazzi – un barbaro che odia gli inglesi – e che il suo tartan rosso e verde nasconde un cuore affine. Il comune amore per la musica rompe le barriere tra due mondi.

Il padre di Aillil minaccia il loro amore, ma un pericolo più grande li divide. I due svaniscono nella leggenda.

Due secoli dopo, il violinista Billy Byerly arriva a Castle Callaghan e si sente stranamente a casa. Le leggende parlano di un Laird perduto che infesta il castello in attesa del ritorno del suo amante, ma Billy non crede alle leggende, ai fantasmi, o all’amore che dura oltre la vita.

Il Laird perduto, però, sa cosa gli appartiene.

Jeffrey Overton, unemployed IT professional turned poker player, pushes his luck once too often and runs afoul of the host of an illegal card club. The man sent to escort Jeffrey to a “meeting” about his supernatural winning streak arrives at Jeffrey’s crappy North Portland apartment, lock-picking tools in hand and a charm to block Jeffrey’s magick.

Head muscle for said host, Mike Wells, is a Daisy from Daisyville. He isn’t a witch. What he lacks in magickal talent he makes up for in brawn, so he doesn’t expect the guy he’s after to overpower him. But once Mike renders Jeffrey helpless, he’d rather seduce him than bring him in.

Jeffrey and Michael ditch the “meeting” and end up hunting some of the same people they ran from, trying to get Jeffrey back into his own body. And that’s only part of the adventure. The pair travel halfway across the country on the quietest road trip in history and find missing people, empire-building witches, and maybe even the families they’d both thought lost to them.
