Saguna is heir to the House of Leah, descendant of an ancient
predatory race once labeled bloodhunters. Centuries of vigilance have
culminated in a guarded, civilized society able to trade peacefully
with other worlds without fear of annihilation. Ingestion of blood is
still a requirement for Sangorrians such as Katriel--dragon's blood
being the main source for youth and unattached Sangorrians. Without
it they would die.
time has come for Katriel to bond with an offworlder--the Primary
Alpha chosen by her mother. His will be the only human blood she will
ingest. He will become her partner, her protector, her lover--and her
source of life. Mating with him and consuming his human blood will
also bring her into her full powers--something she desperately needs
for her own protection, but loving him was not something she had anticipated.
unexpected danger awaits on Ebonnia as a power-hungry, devious
bloodsucker of another mutated species seeks to gain control and uses
insidious methods to shackle the Sangorrian nature to his will. The
civilized society Katriel has always known is about to be torn apart.
Will Valyn be able to protect her or is he already too late?
again studied him silently for a long time. Slowly she rose to her
feet and walked around the side of the desk. "Disrobe, please. I
wish to confirm the replica was not altered concerning your
suitability and lack of abnormalities."
He had known this
was coming. A part of him rebelled at being ordered to disrobe before
her, but he raised his hands and unbuttoned the brown robe, allowing
it to drop to the floor at his feet. He then returned to the stance
of respect and waited, focusing his attention on the window just past
where Noah stood.

refused to let it shake him or respond to it.
circuited him, apparently studying him from every angle. She stopped
to examine the long slashing wound on his arm, seemed to assess each
bruise and cut, categorizing every nuance of his body.
halted in front of him and nodded. "Your wounds are a reflection
of your bravery. It is my opinion that you are well-suited as a mate
for my daughter. Your conduct and bravery have already shown you will
be a good protector. You may ..."
The door to her
office burst open, interrupting her words.
please ..." a frantic feminine voice spoke from behind him, then
of his nakedness, turned his head to see who was there and was
shocked to find himself staring into the startled gaze of his
soon-to-be mate. She was everything he had remembered, and more so.
Her long dark hair fell in dishevelment about her face, her breasts
heaved with agitation, and her pale pink lips were rounded in
apparent shock. But what surprised him most was the dilated dark
smoky depths of her eyes. Darkened with what could only be lust.
She had eyes for
no one else in the room once she saw him standing there. He saw tears
pool within their depths, the startled recognition. "What is
your name?" she whispered hoarsely.
He turned toward
her, and her mouth gaped wider; her eyes dilated more intensely, and
he saw her hands clench at her side.
"My name is
Valyn, Lady. I have come for you as I vowed I would."
she repeated. Her small pink tongue licked at her succulent lips,
tears trailing down her face. He felt his cock take on a life of its
own. "You have come. It is truly you? How can this be?"
"I made you a
promise, and it has led me to this path."
should not be here," her mother protested.
Katriel turned to
look at her mother with panicked, glazed eyes. "I need him,
Mother. How you found him, I do not know, but I need him
desperately." She glanced back at him.
He took a step
toward her and stopped, not wanting to frighten her. Instead, she
stepped to where he waited. Valyn could smell her arousal as she
neared him. He cupped her face and lowered his head. She closed her
eyes and sighed as he dropped forward to capture her lips. Nothing
and no one else in this room mattered. Only the woman who offered
herself to him -- the woman he had yearned for all these years, and
for whom he had prepared himself to take.
Had anything ever
tasted as sweet, and had any woman felt like such absolute bliss?
Deepening the kiss, she opened to him, and he felt her hands inch
upward along his bare chest, felt a sharp prick as her nails dug into
his flesh. Ah, sweet pain. Unlike the ache of battle, this intensity
of feeling was far different. He wanted more, needed to feel her
fangs piercing him as he sank his cock into her pussy.
tongue into her mouth, he tasted her, grazed against her petite
incisor and tasted his own blood as it filled her mouth. As though
galvanized, she sucked, then sucked harder, opened her eyes wide,
staring at him as his lifeblood spilled into her. She curled closer
to his body, her nails digging deeper into his chest.
Yes, oh gods, yes.
If only we were alone. It was not true pain he felt but an aching
need to claim her, to burrow his cock deep inside her hot, tight
channel. He wanted to feel her pulsing around him, clasping him,
He lifted his head
to gaze down at her. She moaned, her claws retracted from his chest,
and she collapsed in his arms, her eyelids fluttering closed. He
caught her and lifted her into his arms, carrying her to the lounge
chair he had seen upon entering the office.

...I'll start by saying that Zytarri 1: Virgin Blood is a definite must-read.
Adrianna Dane is a master at world building and what she's created
with Zytarri 1: Virgin Blood is phenomenal. From the beginning, I was
ensconced in a world full of valor, honor, love, and deep passion. Of
ruling houses and evil entities focused on destruction. Of sadness
and grief and the beauty of sacrifice. ...The way that Ms. Dane
brings these characters to life is done so powerfully that you'll
remember them for a long time to come. The end of Zytarri 1: Virgin
Blood is just the beginning and will undoubtedly be an amazing new
series from Adrianna Dane... --Kerin, TwoLips
Riveting! Are just two words that this reviewer can categorically
say about this book. Ms. Dane has written a fabulous story filled
with dragons and vampires and hot sex! ... This reviewer was
overwhelmed with the story as a whole but I especially enjoyed the
emotional gamut that Katriel went through during the course of this
story. A spectacular job. --Laura,
Dane is a strong and gifted storyteller
I have learned over the years I have read her, but "Wow",
she blew me away with this story. I loved vampire stories, but she
changed the storyline for the better the way she portrayed her
vampires and the world they live on. ... --Nicole,
In the first installment in the Zytarri series, Ms. Dane gives
readers a look at an immensely complex world. ...The relationship
between Katriel and Valyn is believable and richly developed. The
sensuality between them sizzles, yet the sex scenes come about
naturally and never feel forced or tacked-on. Maintaining that level
of heat throughout is quite a challenge, but Ms. Dane does it
beautifully. ...For a science fiction erotic romance of epic
proportions sure to satisfy, look no further than Virgin Blood...

you like futuristic Sci-fi fantasy with a gothic twist, dragons,
vampires, soldiers of war, revenge, sex, poison, passionate lovers,
rituals and a good old fashioned good vs evil story. This could be
for you. ... The romance between Katriel and Valyn was very much what
I hoped. What was so much more magnificent was the story between
Katriel's mother Leora and her "sec" Noah. ... Ms. Dane
kept me in suspense. ... I enjoyed the play on terminology. ... I'd
definitely read the next book. More Please. --Marie,
