Blood Drops (The Blood Stone #1.1) by Tracy Cooper-Posey

BloodDropsBy reader and reviewer request, the story of Nathanial and Sebastian and how they met.

Liars are in need of good allies.
Southampton, 1786: Since being tossed from his ancestral family home at thirteen, and falling in with a swindler, Sebastian has been fighting to preserve life and limb any way he can. While ingratiating himself with Lady Wandsworth and her thousands of pounds, Sebastian meets another roguish charmer, Nathanial, and at his side, the pretty but deadly Anne. Sebastian’s world is abruptly changed as he is introduced to imagination-defying ideas and is snared in an international swindle involving the Queen of France’s diamond necklace.

Sebastian is drawn to Nathanial and his worldly, experienced ways, until Anne reveals the truth about him and the necklace….

CreativeDeedsReadsDisclosure1I know that this one is supposed to be read after the first book in the series, but really the time line comes before the first book so I decided to throw caution to the wind and read this one first.

Blood Drops or Southampton Swindle was short and sweet. Less than 80 pages short. That makes for a perfect late night read. Don’t let the length fool you though. There was a lot packed into this little novella. Seems like the perfect introduction for these two characters.

I’m not sure which one of these two I liked the most. They were both damaged and Sebastian was close to being broken, but he was also proud. He was also very strong. Strong enough not to be phased more than what he was when he found out the truth about Nathanial. There were twists and turns and more than enough heat to keep things interesting. It definitely peaked my interest enough to continue the series. Good thing I have the first book, Blood Knot, ready and waiting. 😉
