Shelves: paranormal-romance , vampires , m-f , own-kindle Book one of the Trueblood trilogy, The Consolation Prize introduces the reader to the Trueblood vampires, an ancient bloodline with the ability to tolerate small amounts of sunlight at dawn and dusk. This ability makes them the envy of their peers. The fact that they are fertile and able to sire children is even more enticing to those who seek power, so Truebloods have gone underground, keeping their identity secret.
Chloe is human, blissfully unaware that vampires exist outside of myth, and Book one of the Trueblood trilogy, The Consolation Prize introduces the reader to the Trueblood vampires, an ancient bloodline with the ability to tolerate small amounts of sunlight at dawn and dusk. She lost her big promotion to a jerk that ripped off her ideas and earns a consolation prize instead. Accommodation and nourishment provided. All spa treatments included.
She lived there as a child and lost her entire family in a tragic accident in that house. He runs a nightclub, and being rich and handsome makes him a magnet for women, so he leads everyone to believe he is gay with a hidden lover. He too has a bad night when he is abducted by unknown assailants who want to use him for breeding stock.
When Chloe explores the hidden passages of Washburn Hall, places she played in as a child, she discovers a naked man in chains held in a basement room. At first she believes he is part of the menu of club services and is intrigued, then realizes he is being held against his will and determines to free him. All she needs is a really big pair of bolt cutters. Or so she thought. Things go awry when Chloe discovers her grandmother, a woman she hoped never to see again, is running the spa.
The plot is finely woven and the characters well developed. I highly recommend this book. Of course that leads to him getting a raise and promotion and the accolades, and she gets the consolation prize. Chloe tenders her resignation and heads off to the spa.
Upon arrival the receptionist is surprised to have a guest arrive during the day and is Chloe is betrayed by the guy she is dating by him acting as if her ideas as his own at work. Upon arrival the receptionist is surprised to have a guest arrive during the day and is even flummoxed when Chloe requests food.
Chloe would leave but she has these 3 voices that she calls her 6 and a half sense that tell her what to do and not to do when it is life threatening or truly life changing. Every time she tries to leave the spa she is guided to stay. So she stays and discovers that the hidden pathways still exist in her old home and of course has to look around and see how far they still extend. Ok, so I get the whole distrust deal. I understand that is a major issue in general but especially in plots of lots of books.
I get that his character had lots of reasons not to trust. But come on!

Gacage It sucks you in pun intended and I liked the story. Overall it was a great story. Vulcanology scorched her feet. Chloe had always closely followed the protective advise of the voices. After dragging up two rotten, ungrateful children and frustrating her sexy, devoted, wonderful husband who can now stop twisting her arm she finally has time to conduct an affair with an electrifying plugged-in male, her laptop. They can be born, and made. Started off elssborg, almost frothy, and then segued into kidnapping, torture and rape, with a Big Misunderstanding, and one of the MCs almost dying — and still with the occasional discordant lighthearted note.
