Lucien Mondragon has been waiting for years to avenge his would-be mate and get revenge against his brother Rafael. That day has finally arrived. However, instead of killing Rafael's mate Falon, Lucien decides an even better revenge is to claim her for his own. And it works. Faced with the loss of his mate and the knowledge of her intimacy with Lucien, Rafael is going mad. But, revenge is a double-edged sword. Instead of remaining indifferent to Falon, Lucien finds himself falling for her and wishing she could love him as she loves his brother. Can Falon grow to love him, and more importantly, can he be worthy of her love?
When Falon is cruelly ripped from the arms of her beloved Rafael and given to his heartless brother Lucien, Falon thinks her life is over. She wants it to be over. But, then the unthinkable happens. Falon discovers Lucien is not the monster she thought him to be, and try as she might to deny it, her attraction to Lucien is growing stronger by the minute. Their chemistry is off the charts, and though she knows she is hurting Rafael, she can't help what she feels for Lucien. Will she ever be able to fully surrender to Lucien, or will the ghost of Rafael always come between them?
Oh. My. Heck! I loved, loved, loved this book! Karin Tabke is an insanely excellent storyteller. Bloodright was everything a book should be: sexy, heartbreaking and passionate with an excellent plot and a great cast of characters. This book didn't just break my heart; it smashed it into tiny pieces.
When Falon was torn from Rafael at the end of book one, lemme tell you, Lucien was big time on my naughty list. I didn't see how I would ever view him as anything other than an evil, vindictive jerk. After reading Bloodright, I have nothing but love in my heart for him. He was a tortured and flawed bad boy, but he was aware of those flaws and he loved Falon enough to try to get past them. As for Falon? She was a pillar of strength. Her heart was breaking, but she selflessly got past that for the good of the Lycan nation. She felt deeply and gave her all in everything she did, including her very real and emotional relationship with Lucien. And then, there's the sex. Inferno doesn't even begin to describe how hot it was. There was one thing that bothered me, however, and I will caution readers. There is animal on human sex and I found that deeply disturbing. That wasn't enough, though, to dim my feelings for this book. I adored Bloodright and I cannot wait for the conclusion to this fabulous series.
