Officer Kristin Greene has always felt that something was missing from her life. Although her job with the Fawn Hollow Township Police Department keeps her busy, she still feels like there is something else out there for her. 

She soon finds herself investigating a homicide where a young woman has had her throat ripped out. When she has to give the death notification to the family, her investigative nature comes out fast and strong when the parents seem too accepting of their daughter's death and make comments that just don't fit. 

When the family requests the assistance of the VMF Securities, Kristin is confused that they would think a security company could assist with the murder investigation. When Julian and Alexander arrive she quickly finds herself being pulled into a love triangle that has been going on longer then she has been alive. Why do they look at here as if they know her? And why do they keep talking about Calista? 

Join Kirstin as she fights to learn the truth about the recent murder, the seductive and blood drinking men that have entered into her life and the rear truth about herself.

My Blood Runs Blue is a fascinating take on the old lover’s triangle tale.

Kristin Greene didn’t feel quite whole. Moving through life as a cop and just existing day to day. She never felt fulfilled, like something was missing. Things change fast and drastically when she meets Julian and Alexander. Drawn to them fiercely, with a hunger she has never experienced before. Her life is now turned upside down with startling new revelations and a reality she never knew existed.

Julian and Alexander used to be best friends until one night everything changed. Thirty-five years ago their lives were destroyed and they have been on a quest to revenge the death of a loved one ever since. The killer has started to kill again with a vengeance and they are bound and determined to end his killing rampage. Once each of them set their eyes upon Kristin their desire to protect and possess is multiplied, but this time they are going to protect the person she resembles. They are also going to let her chose between them. Can either of them survive her choice?

I really loved this take on the vampire lore. It was a mix between born vampires and made vampires. I hope in future books she delves more into the history of their existence. I also enjoyed that her male protagonists were not overly alpha. They were strong yet weak. I really felt like Kristin had a hard choice to make between the two men. I could see amazing values in both of them. I did not envy the choice she had to make.

My Blood Runs Blue is a very distinctive and remarkable story. I was captured by the narrative, the characters were engaging and entertaining, and the outcome was shocking. I couldn’t put the book down. I was enchanted from the very first page.

I want to point out that Ms. Eaton’s writing style is very unique. The point of view of the story changed each chapter, sometimes repeating a prior scene describing the new character’s outlook on the prior chapter. So there is a lot of repetitive monolog. It did take some getting used to for me.

My Blood Runs Blue has a great plot and intriguing characters. Ms. Eaton has a wonderful story to tell and I’m looking forward to reading about Kristin and her adventures into her whole new world.
