Unchained (Blood Bond Vol 1)

Part one:
Vampire Dante Gabriel is starving. What he craves is red gold—human blood. After being held captive as a blood slave to a female vampire for years, he has finally escaped. Unchained at last, he follows his nose to the nearest blood bank to sate his hunger.
ER nurse Erin Hamilton expects just another busy night shift…until she finds a gorgeous stranger vandalizing the hospital blood bank. Though her logic tells her to turn him in, she’s pulled by stronger and unfamiliar emotions to protect the man who seems oddly infatuated with her scent. Chemistry sizzles between them, but Dante, plagued by nightmares of his time in captivity, fears he won’t be able to control himself…especially when he discovers a secret she doesn’t even know she’s hiding. 

Part two: Dante Gabriel is angry. Someone has violated the woman whose scent has left him emotionally paralyzed, and he’s become unhinged. He vows to protect Erin Hamilton—mostly from himself.
Erin has other ideas. She’s determined to figure out the strange man who keeps leaving her aroused and unsatisfied. When she pushes Dante for answers, he goes looking for them himself. What he uncovers could put Erin in mortal danger, with him as her only salvation. 

Part three: Now that Dante Gabriel recognizes the blood bond Erin Hamilton has formed with him, he has unwound a little. Still, he must find a way to convince her that she must complete the bond for both their sakes. Vampires are rapidly dying out, and humans have long considered them nothing more than a myth. How can he make her understand?
Erin has fallen in love with Dante, but she’s still confused and angered by his behavior. To keep her mind occupied, she immerses herself in a mystery that has evolved at work. Patients have been disappearing from the hospital, and Erin begins to wonder if one of the ER doctors might be involved. 

Part four:Vampires are real. That fact has Erin Hamilton thinking she’s headed for crazy town. Still, she can’t deny the intense emotion she experiences when Dante Gabriel sinks his teeth into her neck to take her blood. She’s in love, and her body responds to his bite in a way she never could have imagined.Once Dante tastes Erin’s blood, he’s addicted forever and cannot live without it. He’s heartbroken when she demands that he leave and never return. But neither can live without the other now, which puts them both at risk. 

Part Five:Once bonded, never broken. The words give Dante Gabriel hope…until he remembers where he first heard them. The information he needs is hidden in the ancient Vampyre Texts, but he encounters obstacle after obstacle while trying to decipher them, even when someone from his past returns to help.Though she tries, Erin Hamilton can’t resist Dante. When he comes for her, she always submits willingly, despite her best intentions. She loves him but still can’t bring herself to accept him as vampire…even as other vampires, lured by her arousing scent, begin to close in on her.

Part 3

As we begin where we left off there is more to Dante and Erin’s blood bond and there are more questions than answers. I couldn’t put it down! This is part 3 of a long series. Worth every part so far!  Helen you have done such a great job with pulling the reader in and not letting them go till the end in which there is still more. You have given us mystery, passion, and suspicion.
Erin is Dante’s blood bond and she must feed him her blood or she will die. Erin has become more forgetful in this continuation and she is now in a different kind of danger too. Dante and Erin have consummated their relationship of the strong pull between them. Can Dante convince Erin of the blood bond after he drinks from her or will she never want to see Dante again? Dante is on the verge of insanity with talking to his grandfather and him suggesting that he is being watched over by a ghost (who I think is watching over Erin too), but his trust in his grandfather is waning. There are things he can’t explain to himself and Erin has things happening that she can’t fathom, will these two find answers or more questions as the saga continues to develop?
Part 4
Wow, it’s getting more intense by the part!
Erin has let Dante drink her blood but has second thoughts after the fact. Will Erin ever accept Dante as he is a vampire? Erin loves Dante no denying that but the supernatural part is still being processed in her mind. Dante has tasted heaven with Erin’s blood and will forever be tied to her not only with his love but with her blood. Is the blood bond as real as their love or just a coincidence? Will the answers each seek be revealed or will the answers cause more questions?
Helen I must say the suspense is killing me. I seek more of these two wonderful characters that you have brought to pages. You have the art of cliffhangers and you spin the yarn magnificently in the story of Erin and Dante. I can’t wait to see if my suspicions are correct on who is drinking from Erin and her brother. I have my suspicions on her phantom that keeps popping up as well. Helen you have given me a new series of vampire to fall in love with, thank you. The story keeps getting better. Can’t wait to find out how it all plays out.
Part 5
OMG! Helen you are killing me…. Just when it was getting real interesting you cliffhanger it. I can say I’m now more intrigued than I was with part 4. The anticipation is gnawing at me to know… Strange things are happening which is building the suspense… couldn’t stop reading.
Dante and Erin are bonding but she hasn’t accepted him completely. Dante has questions that lead to more questions will the vampire texts help once he can decipher it?
