BloodBreeders: Living in Darkness Written By: Robin Renee Ray

Not once in her life did farm girl Renee Crocker, imagine she would encounter a world found only in the minds of myth-seeking men. Although the things they sought were not always unheard of in the 1930’s in other parts of the world, life was just too harsh in the small Texas community, to pay mind to anything other than raising a healthy crop to ensure the survival of one’s family. But late one evening during supper, a stranger comes knocking on the door of the Crocker family farm house and is invited inside.

It doesn’t take long for Renee to discover a great number of things that people in her neck of the woods couldn’t even contemplate. The dark of night takes on a whole new meaning, and the once vulnerable young country woman finds herself struggling to survive in a world that demands she live forever in darkness.

My Review
Robin Renee takes us on a dazzling journey through the growth of the recently turned  vampire Renee Crocker.  Leading a sheltered life on a small farm, Renee was unprepared for the beautiful stranger that showed up at her parents house.  It wasn't uncommon for people to stop by for a few days or even stay on a whole season to work the fields. Her father never turned anyone away and had a bunk house set up for travelers. But in her 26 years of life, no one had ever stirred anything in her like Martin.  Dressed in a suit, unlike most of the travelers, he shows up one night just as the family is sitting down for dinner.  He politely declines the invitation to dinner only wishing to rest for the night.  Renee is sent to the bunkhouse to bring him a plate and some blankets.  She is hypnotized by his presence and stutters nervously as she hands him the items with a blush developing on her cheeks.  Martin is enchanted and recalls what brought him here in the first place.  He has big plans for this small town beauty.  Its just too bad he can't tell her til after hes done.
This was a really great book.  I was sucked into the plot just from the prologue and couldn't wait to get started.  And once I started the book, I couldn't put it down!  It takes you on an emotional roller coaster laugh cry..your heart breaks, then bleeds and finally starts getting put back together again. Robin Renee does a great job of creating a whole new world of vampires for readers to get lost in!  Ann Rice fans need to point their radar this way!
