Book Description

When Aurora meets Trey, a famous singer and musician, she’s only hoping to get her fill of human blood for the week. The last thing Aurora expects is for Trey to make her feel alive for the first time since she was, well, alive. It begins with a casual painting lesson at her art studio, The Waking Moon, and quickly turns into a forbidden romance. Aurora is forced to hide her true identity from Trey, while keeping her relationship with the human a secret from other vampires in her Brood.

Trey’s band is recording a new album and with Aurora as his muse, Trey is writing songs like never before. After being hired by their record label to paint the cover of the new album, Aurora has a legitimate reason for spending so much time with Trey and his band mates. Aurora can’t deny the unexpected connection she has with Trey, which is fueled by glimpses into his emotions every time they share a kiss. Caught between two worlds, Aurora must attend celebrity award shows and vampire rituals, find time to feed, and protect Trey from the dangers of the night, all while preserving her secrets.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"I believe this book has broad appeal and will be enjoyed by both teens and adults....The romance between the two main characters is sweet, clean and engaging. I look forward to seeing what happens next for Trey and Aurora in the second of what seems to be a promising series of books." - Readers Favorite

"This modern-day, albeit paranormal, love story begins with a flourish, introducing readers to the tragically beautiful Aurora, while offering a glimpse into the secret world of vampires that she inhabits.... Showcases Jensen's solid writing and more than passing understanding of songwriting and the music industry. All the while, the reader braces for the repercussions of the main characters' forbidden romance... I recommend "Blood and Guitars" to YA, NA, and adult paranormal romance fans."  - Tom Winship (Author of Vaempires series) 

"What's not to love about a book with vampires and rock music? I really loved the witty comments and felt as though I could identify with Aurora.  I mean, what's a vampire to do?" - Brazen Book Reviews

"This was an interesting twist on the whole vampire-falls-in-love-with-a-mortal idea since the girl is the vampire and the guy is the mortal.  You don't see that much and it was interesting." - Clean Romance Reviews

"I like how Ms. Jensen creates her own type of vampire.... It is a good book, and I think if you like music, vampires, and painting, this book might be right up your alley." - Place of Reads

From the Author

Writing Blood And Guitars was a frustrating and fulfilling experience all in one. I actually began writing the story more than ten years ago and put it aside to work on other projects. It was always there in the back of my mind, waiting to be finished. I had no idea that vampires were going to become so popular in mainstream fiction and on screen but as I set to work finishing the book, I was happy to be part of something so much bigger than myself. The blend of vampires and music, two of my passions, happened very naturally with this story. I'm a huge fan of Trey and his band, Catalyst, as they are a representation of all of my favorite artists combined.

I hope you'll enjoy reading Trey and Aurora's story as much as I have enjoyed writing it. Don't forget, Blood And Guitars is just the first book in the series. The second installment, Immortals And Melodies, will be released summer of 2012.

3.0 out of 5 stars Paranromal Romance July 23, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
First of all I would like to thank Heather for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This is the YA paranormal romance story of Trey and Aurora. It's not what you're thinking though, Trey is the mere mortal and Aurora is the vampire. Now that is new.

The story flows and the dialogue between the characters is real. This is an easy read about is really just about the development of the relationship between Trey and Aurora.

Trey is a rock god who's lost his mojo thanks to a gold-digging ex. Aurora is a newly turned vampire out for a meal. It is forbidden for a vampire to become romantically involved with a mortal but Aurora just can't keep away and takes a job working with Trey's band just so she can spend more time with him.

I like some of the twists that Heather has put in the book in regards to vampire myth; garlic, sunshine is no problem. There is also the fact that once a vampire has fed from a mortal then the mortal automatically avoids vampire's, which means that Aurora can't feed from Trey.

Although I did enjoy the book I found it a bit slow in parts. I understand the reason behind this but feel there could have been a bit more action in the storyline. It does appear that the action has been saved for book 2 Immortals & Melodies.

I am looking forward to reading book 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Different Read! June 11, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book managed to grab my attention after only the first couple of chapters. I could tell that it was going to be something different in the world of vampires and I was pretty excited about that. Sometimes it is hard to find something different and unique than what is already out there.

Then to see that this book would be alternating between point of views between Aurora and Trey was just even better. I love it when books do that because it is always nice to be able to tell what both main characters are thinking and feeling about one another.

But then after those first few chapters, something happened. The book seemed to slow down. For quite a few chapters we only got Trey's point of view and it seemed to mainly be about song writing, which, okay, this is a book that does involve a musician so it was somewhat understandable but unfortunately it caused the book to drag a little and I found myself wanting to scan the pages more than actually read them, something that is never a good sign. But, I hung in there in the hopes that it would get better.

I am so glad I stuck with it because it did indeed get better. The romance picked up and the action picked up as well.

I found myself once again being drawn into the storyline and into the lives of the characters.

I really started to feel more for Aurora and Trey and by the time I was done with the story I wanted more of it.

I really look forward to reading the next installment to find out what happens and how everything is handled.

I think this is a promising series that will turn out to be quite addicting.

I give this one 3.5 Stars!

2.0 out of 5 stars A KindleObsessed Review January 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Well...in the interest of saving everyone time, (because this review is going to be a long one) I've decided to skip the witty banter and start this review with an epic sized SIGHHHHHHH.

That's right folks...I am sighing, which if you know me at all means I am swimming in a pool of disappointment. A pool, (mind you) that I insist you join me in, so for the love of all that is holy, keep reading.

When Aurora meets Trey, a famous singer and musician, she's only hoping to get her fill of human blood for the week. The last thing Aurora expects is for Trey to make her feel alive for the first time since she was, well, alive. It begins with a casual painting lesson at her art studio, The Waking Moon, and quickly turns into a forbidden romance. Aurora is forced to hide her true identity from Trey, while keeping her relationship with the human a secret from other vampires in her Brood.

Trey's band is recording a new album and with Aurora as his muse, Trey is writing songs like never before. After being hired by their record label to paint the cover of the new album, Aurora has a legitimate reason for spending so much time with Trey and his band mates.

Caught between two worlds, Aurora must attend celebrity award shows and vampire rituals, find time to feed, and protect Trey from the dangers of the night, all while preserving her secrets.

I would have loved to jump into this review raving about the next great vampire book. I would have loved to tell you that Jensen catapulted me into a world that I haven't read before; that her take on the "night's" special brand of blood loving freaks was unique and fresh.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth the Time! August 31, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Picked up this book as a freebie interested in Rock Star stories. This is a definite twist to the normal rock star
sex craved books out there. The main characters, Trey and Aurora are so likable and so are the rest of the cast. It did remind me
of Twilight at times, but the story ran differently. I found myself lost in the story and couldn't wait to get to the end to find out what was going to happen,
only to be frustrated, not because I wasn't enjoying the book, but I wanted more. The 2nd book is out and I'm reading that one
too!!
It really is a heartwarming, crazy story and I think you would enjoy it. I'm not going into details because I think it ruins the fun of reading the story, but I would recommend picking up the book and reading it, you won't regret it.

More About the Author

I write clean fantasy for teens and adults. I'm an avid reader and I love stories about vampires, but I enjoy fantasy of all kinds.

I'm addicted to Oreos and adding weird flavors to my soda. When I'm not writing I enjoy traveling, playing board and card games, killing zombies on the Xbox 360 with my hubby, listening to music, playing guitar, going to concerts, and spending time with friends and family.

My favorite color is green and the uglier the shade, the better. I get bored of my hairstyle easily which has resulted in me having many colors of hair in the last ten years. My hair is currently red, but who knows how long that might last.

I live in Southern Utah with my husband and son. Now that my first series, Blood And Guitars, is complete, I'm working on my next writing project.

Readers can expect more from me in the genres of Paranormal/Rock Fiction in the not-so-distant future.
