Blood Guard: A Mission Novel by Megan Erickson
I’m always up for a new vampire world, and Megan did not disappoint. We get an introduction into the world around the city of Mission, but also how the vampires survive, different species of vampires (yes, there are very creepy ones,) and how much this clan of vampires believes in duty. Tendra was a strong heroine, seeing as her world is turned upside down after meeting Athan, her vampire bodyguard. I loved Athan, he was both strong and sweet with Tendra, but he was so conflicted about having feelings for her. And Tendra, for being told her human life is basically gone, doesn’t break down, act out, or do stupid things to get caught. I was impressed with her strength and attitude, both with Athan and also in facing down the bad guys. Megan really brings the heat once Tendra and Athan give into their feelings.

Enter a world of immortal danger and desire—and discover an incredible fate borne of blood.
Tendra: One minute, I’m a bartender in gritty Mission City; the next, I’m whisked away by a vampire named Athan who tells me that I’m the lifeblood of his clan. It sounds unbelievable, but he’s got evidence I can’t deny. Turns out, Athan belongs to an underground society of vampires who feed only on humans with their consent. Their enemies have no such qualms, and they want me dead. The only thing standing in their way is strong, sexy Athan. And the closer we get, the more tempted I am to let Athan feed. . . .
Athan: How could I have known when I snatched this snarky, beautiful human off the streets that she would change my destiny? As a loyal soldier, I must deliver Tendra to our future king—my brother. Empowered with the blood of ten generations of the Gregorie breed, she is fated to rule as our queen. But there’s something between us that’s so intoxicating, so carnal, I can’t help wanting Tendra for myself . . . even if it’s treason.
