Blurbs and review bites:

KatrinaAs a vampire being hunted was nothing new, having to protect those hunting her was.

Royal Blood Chronicles tells the story of Katrina from the age of seventeen, when she’s chosen to be the leader of the Protectors and the Five. The Five have been chosen to protect all peaceful races, including humans, from evil trying desperately to take over the world of light. While her father prepared her to fight, her friends have only known lives of luxury, cloistered in the royal houses of Europe. Now all their lives have changed forever and they must all be trained in order help Katrina save their world.

It’s an action packed coming of age sage, chronicling the lives of Katrina, the Five and all those that join them as The Protectors.

Royal Blood Chronicles starts here with Katrina, the Beginning. It’s full of romance, friendship, adventure and betrayal, in a magical, fantasy world beautifully drawn by author Elizabeth Loraine.

This review is from: Katrina, The Beginning (Book 1) (Royal Blood Chronicles) (Kindle Edition)

This book series needs to become a movie, it got me hooked immediately from the start… can’t say enough to say I absolutely love this book and the others so far…

She is a vampire. She is a Royal. Her watchers. What can I say? They sound Devine! She has studied hard with her watchers, she is a great marksman but even better at hand to hand. Her mother is dead. Or is she? Quinn is her love. Or is it just blood lust? Is Damien evil? Or is he her love?

I couldn’t read this quick enough! I wanted to devour all it’s magic!!

Clearly defined characters with a new take on vampire princesses. Exciting storyline where the heroines of good are vampires it is filled with magic and mystery.

Elizabeth Loraine’s Royal Blood Chronicle series has a developing plot that digs deeper with each additional novel, and her creativity in the design of her characters is astounding. Whether her characters are vampires, humans, wizards or demons, there is always an unexpected plot twist to surprise the reader. The Protectors’ fight to maintain control of the upper world is challenged by unforeseen characters and circumstances throughout the series. There are many authors in the fantasy genre, but Elizabeth Loraine is one of the best. She veers away from the usual supernatural storyline to produce works of remarkable interest to lovers of this genre. Cain is a prime example of her creative mind; he is a thread-climber that is unaware of his full potential as a powerful, magical vampire. Although he has a rather rough beginning, once everything has been righted, Cain becomes a leader no one could hate. His selfless acts and teaching ability are superb and give the reader an insight to his destiny. The same holds true for the other major characters of this series; their intertwined destinies leave the reader wanting more. I applaud Loraine’s creative genius. She takes the myths of old and refurbishes them with pizzazz. I enjoyed reading Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga, but I absolutely love Loraine’s Royal Blood Chronicle. Loraine’s plot is much better, and her story-lines are more interesting. Bella’s relationship with Edward is lame compared to the love of Katrina and Quinn, two more protagonists of this series. For fans of the fantasy genre, this series is a must read. I have read hundreds of fantasy novels, and Royal Blood Chronicle ranks in the top five. I recommend this series for anyone that loves unexpected twists, great friendships, and terrific story-lines. This series receives four out of four stars

I have worked with my husband building and decorating custom homes for years. After loving every kind of vampire book, movie and series I decided that I wanted to know more.

I now have six books in the series and am about to release book two of my new series Phantom Lives. My parents always told me that I could do anything that I wanted, work hard, study and do it right. I believe that and live that way every day.

Synopsis:

My life was just like any other girl’s until the Maxwell corporate empire ruined my family and stole my future. I’d given up hoping to see justice done, but then the way to right this wrong was dropped in my lap. My job with an event planner can get me into the home of one of Maxwell’s business partners. I can find evidence of what they did to my father. I can make sure they pay.I wasn’t expecting Sebastian.Sebastian has been hired for security, but he is also the son of the man I despise. I should hate Sebastian purely on principle. I shouldn’t care that he’s sweet and funny and sexy as hell. He’ll always be a Maxwell, and that means he’s my enemy.

I can’t help but want him anyway.

He seems to want me too, but only for a good time. He’s the son of privilege, and he’ll never be serious about me. He’ll also never betray his family. If he finds out what I’m really doing here, he’ll turn on me in an instant. He’ll keep me from finding justice.

It’s just that I keep finding him instead.

About Noelle Adams: Noelle handwrote her first romance novel in a spiral-bound notebook when she was twelve, and she hasn’t stopped writing since. She has lived in eight different states and currently resides in Virginia, where she teaches English, reads any book she can get her hands on, and offers tribute to a very spoiled cocker spaniel.

She loves travel, art, history, and ice cream. After spending far too many years of her life in graduate school, she has decided to reorient her priorities and focus on writing contemporary romances.

Her second book, a holiday novella titled “The Christmas Cottage” hit #10 on Amazon’s Best Seller List on Christmas Eve. It was a great Christmas gift! Watching the numbers rise and fall is a daily roller coaster ride but definitely an exciting one! And on February 25th, she released the follow up novella – “Ever After” – available exclusively on Amazon.

When she’s not working on a new story, she spends her time reading contemporary romances, blogging, playing way too many games of Scrabble on Facebook and spending time with her husband of 23 years and their two sons in North Carolina.
