The Bloodgate Warrior

Paranormal Romance

Publisher: Carina Press

As the Mayan hero Técun lay dying, a sorceress cast a spell tying her bloodline to him, so that one day he could return and avenge their people…

Following a near-death experience, Cassandra Gonzales is haunted by erotic dreams of a mysterious man. As the dreams intensify, she is compelled to travel to Guatemala in search of him. There she learns that her blood has opened a gate—and she is the only one who can bring the great warrior back from the afterlife.

Once faced with Técun in the flesh, Cassie fears the need he stirs within her. She aches to submit to the pleasure he promises, but first she must learn to trust in him, and in her own desires. Their time for sensual exploration is brief—Técun’s killer has escaped, intent on sacrificing Cassie and wreaking havoc on the world. Now, only Cassie’s complete and willing surrender to Técun will give him the power to defeat the demon once and for all…

“The story is an interesting mix of Mayan legend, including blood, pain, and sacrifice; and a lot of action as Técun hunts for his ancient enemy with the help of Cass.  It was a quite different read from the normal fare.” GoodReads

“It has everything I love to be entertained by: action, blood, and sex. What can I say, eros and thanatos does it for me every time. Add in the beautifully detailed and researched components of the Maya and their religion and I’m freakin’ jumping up and down like a kid whose made an unsanctioned raid into the cookie jar. ”  Vivian Archer, GoodReads
