Product Description

The enemy of my enemy is not my friend.

Sebastian Vaughn is haunted by the ghost of his dead lover.
After coming face to face with everything he lost, he’s on the run with a deadly assassin who’s on the verge of insanity. What else are you meant to do when the biggest ghost from your past stares you right in the face? Go with the flow, or die trying.
Xavier Blood never thought he’d fall in love, let alone work for the good guys.
Mercy Reid held him together during the darkest time of his life and now she’s an agent alongside him. Working Black Ops for the British government means two things. No accountability and no association. Get caught and you’re dead.
Their first assignment puts them on the trail of Vaughn, the assassin who saved his life, and the last living man who took everything from him, Jaques Lafayette.
The stakes are high, trust is a hot commodity and someone’s going to die.
Only time will tell who’s blood will paint the world red.

Let me say from the very start, I absolutely love the Royal Blood series so I was very eager to read this, to say the least. I have been waiting with baited breath in fact.
Wow!! This is a brilliant instalment to this gripping series! Love, lies, deception, murder, it has it all!
This review is proving a hard one to write, I feel I have to explain the story, but don’t want to give anything away, it’s so hard when I just want to share it with everyone!
This book will have you hooked, sucked in from the first word! It gripped me immediately and putting it down was a very hard task indeed.
Amity is one of my favourite authors. I love her style of writing. I love that the female characters are as kick ass as the male characters, so with each instalment you get a very action packed, exciting and yet emotional read. If you haven't read this series yet and you like to read a book that's not all flowers and unicorns, and you like a female character that can hold her own then I can't recommend it enough!
Even though this book has concentrated on 2 other characters from the main story Vaughn and Lorelei, it was great to see X and Mercy make an appearance or two. I love all of the characters in this series they each have their own story to tell.
I'm very much looking forward to the next book I will be sad when this series comes to an end I just love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truth...Revenge...Love? 24 February 2016
By The Fairest of All Book Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Amity Cross’ Royal Blood series is made up of a collection of books that are well written, suspenseful, complex, and character and plot driven. Xavier Blood, the main character of the series, is quite the anti-hero, but in Love Like Blood, readers see the deprogrammed freed man with a bit of a conscience that he’s become with Mercy’s help, and it gives us hope that Vaughn will be able to get his Lorelei back even if the situations aren’t exactly the same.

Truth, revenge, and new beginnings are the main subjects of book 5. Lorelei needs answers, and she needs to figure out who she is now not who she was five years ago with Vaughn or even two weeks ago as the merciless assassin that she had been programmed to be. But as Lorelei struggles through the effects of getting her memories back, she doesn’t know how to go from a nameless killer to a woman who once had a life very different from the only one she can remember with a man she feels a connection to but can’t quite understand why.

All Vaughn wants to do is love and save Lorelei, but he’s not the one who can truly help her – the only one who can is the one who’s been through a similar torture, X, and due to the set of circumstances that brought all of them together, trust is not something they all feel towards each other, especially now that X and Mercy work for a branch of MI6.

Love Like Blood is divided into two parts – Blood Lust, the first one, deals with the aftermath of Lorelei’s decisions and her thirst to make those pay who had any hand in turning her into what she had become as well as Vaughn’s attempts to bring out the old Lorelei – the one he loved and never stopped.

In Love Like Blood, Vaughn and Lorelei and X and Mercy come together to put an end to the people responsible for the darkness that has consumed their lives for so many years, and regardless of the dangers or the fear of duplicity, they all work for a new beginning – one that won’t come easily, but one they’re willing to put everything on the line in order to get that chance.

One book remains in the Royal Blood series, and X and Mercy’s future has to be its topic because at the end of Love Like Blood, it’s unclear what path they plan to take, which means readers are in store for one more journey into the double dealings and darkened environment that surrounds a man who’s been changing ever since he made the decision to love Mercy instead of kill her and the woman who’s responsible for bringing X into the light, even if it’s still in edges of darkness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honest Review 25 February 2016
By Fictional Men's Page For Book Ho's - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
3.5 Stars

I've loved every single book in this series so far and I even mentioned, in my review of the last book, how much I would have loved the story to continue.

Unfortunately, with this book, the characters haven't gone in a direction I hoped they would.

Every character was virtually unrecognisable from the ones I have become familiar with.  Vaughn in particular was a shadow of the man I had come to love. In this book he gave me very little and I get his love for Lorelei is unconditional, but he just came across as weak in comparison to what he has been. Having said that, I did feel his devotion to Lorelei was incredible and it was hard not to love him for that.

As for Lorelei, well she just came across as a bit of a b1tch, if I'm honest. She never really gave away much vulnerability, even when she started to piece things together. Having gone through what she has, I would have expected more from her.

We were not only given the story of Vaughn and Lorelei, but also how X and Mercy are doing working for a Black Ops organisation within the British Government.  It will be interesting to see how things will ultimately work out for them, because I really do believe they were at their best when they lived by their own rules.

This book to me felt like a filler for things to come in the next book and despite my misgivings about this one, I did enjoy it, just not to the level I did the others and I'm still hopeful that the series will return to what I know and love.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a dark, erotic, thrilling read! 25 February 2016
By Dana Busenbark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This story starts off with a bang, trying to remember who Lorelei is. The Hangman, aka. Vaughn, trying to help her figure out what she is going to do with her life after the death of her father. Will she go after Royal Blood and try to take over or will she go after Lafayette, the man who sold her into sexual slavery? Was she trafficked? Was she a sex slave? What happened to her? What turned her into an assassin? Who? This story is really all about Lorelei figuring out who and what she wants to be again. We once again get into the fact that X and Mercy have joined MI-6 in their deep cover, Queen and government won't acknowledge their existence much less job if they're caught work. What is Mei asking of X? What's going on with Mercy? Where are Lorelei and Vaughn headed to? What happens when Mercy and X are tasked, off the books of an off the books group to bring in not only Lafayette, but Lorelei and Vaughn as well? What happens when X gets in contact with Vaughn's man? And Vaughn gets in contact with Hawkes as well? Does Hawkes relay X's message? Can people trust one another to work with each other again from opposite sides of the fence? Read and see what happens! This does have an HEA of sorts, but at the same time leaves an opportunity open for another book in the series.

RECEIVED THIS BOOK AS A GIFT FOR A FAIR/HONEST REVIEW and REVIEWER FOR Bloggin' With M.Brennan.

By Bookaholic Mama - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
“’I was only gone three days.’ ‘That’s three days without your c@#k.’ ‘Charming.’”

To say that I am in love with Xavier Blood and the Royal Blood series would be putting it mildly. Each time a new book comes out, it becomes the oxygen I breathed. To say that I am VERY sad that there is only one book left would be the understatement of the century. But that is a story for another time. This book was abso-freaking-lutley amazing!!! I had some doubts at the beginning, it seemed to be headed in a direction I would have accepted, but I would have been mildly disappointed in. Shame on me for doubting the incredible Amity Cross, I beg your forgiveness oh great one! There are few authors who can truly weave a wonderful story that scoops the reader up and takes them on the ride of a life time. Amity Cross is one on of the handful that I have come across. If you have been following this series, this book is a MUST F@#$ING READ!!! You will NOT be disappointed other than the fact it is second to last in the series and then X, Mercy, Sebastian, Lorelei and Hawkes will be done forever (please god of authors say it ain’t so!) 5 BLOODY stars and 5 hands down the pants, oh yeah!!

“I was hers forever whether she wanted me or not.”
