Winter, a professional thief who can manipulate others’ biologies by touch, accidentally “healed” her former partner–and former vampire–Sebastian, whom she secretly loves. Her healing created a symbiotic pairing between them that neither of them wants.
Nathanial, a sexy thousand-year-old vampire and Sebastian’s ex-lover, talks Sebastian and Winter into stealing evidence that will expose all vampires to the world. But Nathanial is a puppet-master who doesn’t believe in falling in love with humans, leaving Winter unsure of his real feelings for her once he seduces her, or how he feels about Sebastian, the former vampire-now-human whose life he has turned upside down once more.
But the evidence they steal is hot property. The future of all vampires is on the line and others will stop at nothing to get it, leaving Sebastian, Winter and Nathanial with no allies but each other. They must trust each other to survive. Only…can they?

For once I think reading books out of order enhanced my reading experience instead of just giving things away. Of course, that could be because the book that I read first was the first Blood Drops book, Southampton Swindle. Since it was actually a flashback to the time that Sebastian and Nathanial met, I figured it was safe.
Regardless of the order, I think I liked Blood Knot even better than Southampton Swindle. It may have been the introduction of Winter, or maybe it was the time spent getting to know an even older Nathanial. Whatever the reason, this book kept me turning the pages…
Blood Knot had a little bit of everything. One thing it didn’t have was predictability. The players changed from chapter to chapter …. sometimes even page to page. I don’t want to give too much away, so you’re going to have to put up with my vagueness. Just know that nothing is exactly as it seems and the reader is kept as much in the dark as the characters that Tracy Cooper-Posey had created.
This series seems to have a little bit of everything. It is definitely a hot, steamy, erotic romance, but it’s also a lot more than that. The world building is unique, yet familiar. There is intrigue, passion, raw emotion (that I honestly didn’t expect) a fair amount of humor all laced with enough action and danger that it was hard to tell by the end exactly who would survive.
Make sure you heed the warning though. If any of what is mentioned makes you the least bit uncomfortable, it’s probably best to leave this one alone. Even though the next book in the series doesn’t center around all of the characters in Blood Knot, I still can’t wait to see what happens next in the Blood Stone series.
