**REVIEW** Blood Debt by Nancy Straight

I really enjoyed Meeting Destiny but I LOVED this one!!  Make sure you pick
up a copy because it is amazing and worth every penny!

Her whole life, it had just been the two of them. Before her mother’s last breath, she gave Camille the information she had craved her entire life: the identity of her father. Daring to contact him, Camille was welcomed by an entire family she never knew existed. But nothing comes without a price, as she discovers when her family claims a legendary heritage tracing back to a centaur touched by Zeus. 
As she learns the secrets of her Centaur bloodline, she is drawn into a forbidden love with Drake. Her life may be the blood debt required to pay for her mother’s transgressions. The same person who once held her mother captive, and forced her into decades of hiding, now controls Camille. Her only chance is to seek a piece of her mother’s past that will win her freedom and the life she desperately wants.

  When I asked Nancy to sign up for Indie Girl March I was excited that she said yes.  I read Meeting Destiny last year for a tour and loved her writing and even though I still have yet to  get my hands on the rest of that series, when she asked if I would like to review Blood Debt for this event I was all over it!  Even with how much I liked Meeting Destiny, I loved Blood Debt.  I didn't read much into it before starting and truth be told I'm so glad I didn't because  it gave me a chance to be all kinds of surprised!

With her mothers passing Camille is left with the one thing she thought she would give anything to get, her fathers name.  With no family and the name she has always wanted Camille decides there is only one thing to do and makes the call.  Little does she know how much this will change everything she has ever known.  To her and my surprise she has more family than she ever imagined.  Then things got both a little suspicious and really interesting.  One new father, a step mother that despite your fathers infidelity welcomes you and five very eager brothers is bound to change everything.  Plus the fact she learns why her mother really had no relationships and why she ran away from everything.

  Camille was really an interesting character.  I know you hear that a lot but I was so pulled in by her.  Maybe it was the fact I related to her and her "not doing it just because you said so" attitude.  Despite her easy acceptance of her new family (name) did occasionally stop to question things.  There were a few moments at the start when things were really odd and all I could think was why the heck aren't you either running or questioning this more but this didn't last long.  It also helped that she didn't just jump right on the train when they tried to tell her what she was.  She believed they were some sort of weird cult or so something and  really I couldn't blame her because I had considered it myself.   Eventually she does however slip into believing and to my relief she didn't just start following all of their rules.  She stays who she is and basically tells them to deal with it.  Now I'm sure I could tell you much more about this awesome girl but best to leave some things for you to see for yourself.

The romance/relationship part of this one was not your run of the mill romance.  When Camille accepts what she is and who her family is she kind of learns that relationships and marriage is something completely different than what she was raised with.  Meaning you get married because he is the best male and not always because you love them.  Don't get me wrong the guys love, protect and cherish you but it's not the typical date until you find the right one.  Kind of like window shopping for a guy and picking because he may be the best.  This isn't Camille's ideal and her attraction to Drake is forbidden and could destroy more than just her reputation, it could destroy his life and family.  There is no insta love, insta attraction maybe but I can't blame her because I think I may have swooned a little over the guy.  All around the romance was amazing and so far from rushed that I savored every moment!

  Nancy Straight has really hit a home run with this series and the characters she has created.  The second I can spring for them I will be picking these up to have them on my shelf.   The writing is smooth, beautiful and paints out everything with extreme ease.  The need for book two is strong within me and basically anything Nancy Straight.  Trust me this is one author that you should be rushing to pick up because I know I am!!  

I wanted to argue with him.  I didn't like the idea that he felt I needed protecting.  I wasn't some frail flower, but Will had said something that bothered me- something about my mothers family and that she had run away from them at seventeen.

Centaur?  The half-people, half-hoarse things?  No freakin' way!  Mentally ill and delusional.  I wonder if Will knew she was a loon.  He'd have to know, right?

Chris stepped in front of me and reached for the door knob so he could open the door for me.  Two points for the tall sexy gentleman with great manners.

I hated it when my girlfriends got overly infatuated with guys they hardly knew.  I didn't believe in. nor was I ever someone who wanted to her about love-at-first-sight: the whole idea was a crock of crap.
