Book Description

She didn’t know what she was—or that what she was could get her killed...

A struggling private detective in Los Angeles, Chase Alcott has no idea about her unique genetic makeup. So when she takes on a new client—an old man with ulterior motives—she’s unaware of the danger she’ll soon face. Traveling to England to solve a mysterious murder at the request of her new client, Chase encounters terrifying creatures she thought only existed in her nightmares—only to find out she’s one of them. Caught in a web of evil and deception after learning some terrifying truths about her long dead parents, Chase doesn’t know who to believe. Does she dare trust the enigmatic Roman, a man with dark secrets of his own?

He knew what she was—he just had no idea what to do about her…

English nobleman, Roman Fernwood, half-werewolf/half-vampire, doesn’t want a mate, especially not a half human/ half-weretiger with no knowledge of what she is. But there’s something about Chase, Roman can’t resist in spite of his determination not to fall in love. Is it her fascinating American spunk and courage, or her stunning cinnamon eyes? Or could it be the passion he senses just beneath her calm, unruffled demeanor? Whatever it is, Roman must keep her safe from those who want to kill her while finding a way to show her what she is without driving her into the arms of the other were who also want her for a mate.

Fate should have considered the consequences before messing with Mother Nature.

A paranormal romantic suspense for all adventurous readers.

Review

The paranormal genre is, without a doubt, my favorite genre to read so I was really looking forward to reviewing this book and it did not disappoint. Take a sexy man, make him into not only a vampire but also a werewolf, throw him in England with that killer accent and make him a nobleman? Drool. Then put him together with a woman that can handle him and sit back and watch the fireworks fly. Chase is just the kind of female character that I love to read about. She is strong, smart and sassy. She knows what she wants and goes after it. She doesn't need a man in her life, but who is she to resist when the opportunity presents itself in the form of tall, dark, and yummy? Roman is an aloof English aristocrat that has no interest in finding a mate, much to his adoptive father's dismay. His father sets out to find him one anyway, sending Chase his way. Once he meets Chase, and realizes that she doesn't know what she is, he can't turn her away. Chase's best friend and business partner, David (who is drooling over Roman as well), goes to England with her. David is a fun secondary character that is well developed and adds to the book. Then there is Grayson and Drake. They are part of the local were-tiger pack and both sexy in their own right. If I had to pick a secondary character that I wanted to see more of in a future book it would probably be one of these three. Chasing Destiny is a well written book with well-developed characters and a fun new world of vampires and shape-shifters, with plenty of page turning action, fun characters and humor. The way Roman and Chase go at each other is funny and realistic. David is the friend you'll wish you could have that is loyal, caring and amusing. His reactions to situations are totally believable and amusing. The added characters from other were-packs are mysterious and sexy and will leave you wanting to see more of them. The background that the author gave Chase adds a sort of an Anastasia mysteriousness to her, with the potential for a prequel sometime in the future, if Ms. O'Neal is so inclined. It would be a history that would add depth to not only Chase, but the entire were-tiger culture in the book. It looks like Ms. O'Neal may plan to make this a series, based on the title but that is pure speculation (and hope) on my part. I look forward to being able to revisit some of these characters in the future if that is the case and I'll keep my fingers cross that Grayson and/or Drake are in future installments. If you enjoy paranormal romance, vampires and shape-shifters you will definitely want to check out this book. It is one that may end up on your keeper shelf. Wouldn't want to miss out on that would you? This book is also available in paperback, as well as ebook format. - Laura McQuillen --Laura McQuillen of Kick Back and Review

I really enjoyed reading this book! It has a great mix of paranormal beings with a twist. The storyline is very fast paced and gets you hooked into Chase's drama that is unfolding in front of her…The interactions between all the characters is relate-able and believable (if we were supernatural beings)! Pepper O'Neal has a great book that takes you in from the first word and leaves you wanting more with the last! If you are a fan of the paranormal, then this is definitely a book to add to your TBR list!! My rating is 4 out of 5 Hearts! Really great read! - Melissa Rheinlander --Melissa Rheinlander of Keeping Up with the Rheinlanders

I can't tell you just how much I enjoyed this book. The main female character Chase, who is a private detective, which I find interesting enough that is her career. I haven't read too many with the females as PI's but then maybe it s the books I choose. I love that she is sassy, stubborn and kick's ass! Roman, half vampire and half lycan well now I could have the best of both worlds, definitely my kind of hero. I also loved the interesting unique take on the vampire and lycan lore. I know I have said this before but I am constantly amazed at how many different versions of the vampire myth as well as the lycan, that is being written. This book was fun wild ride, that has you chuckling out loud, Not one part of this storyline did I find boring though towards the end I did scratch my head on one thing. Wondering how was that possible, I truly hope there is another book to follow this one. I would definitely love to read more. I am also going to be checking out Pepper's other works. - Booklover's Hideaway --Booklover's Hideaway

4.0 out of 5 stars Intrigue, Romance and half breeds fun or what? August 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Through my status as a reviewer at Book Lovin Bitches I received this book. Pepper Oneal is a fine author and this was a first for me from her. Not to mention I'm into this kind of Historical Fiction mood so I was thoroughly surprised to get into Blood Fest: Chasing Destiny. A sucker for an alpha and a Brit to boot....purrrr. I also love my witty, feisty heroine.

This book had that and so much more. The characters from the protagonists to the gay PI partner to the eccentric mortal father of Roman Fernwood were a true joy. While paranormal romance's definition is so broad but Pepper has a definite signature that sets her apart and ahead.

Chase and Roman are both half breeds of species that don't usually get along but that only adds to the tension along with a good mystery wrapped into a stunning romance. My suggestion is read it and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Chasing Destiny June 7, 2011
By Stewart
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
During a high speed pursuit, private detectives Chase Alcott and David Bronson hit an elderly man. [The man they're chasing escapes.] When they visit Lord Fernwood in the hospital, he wants to hire them to investigate a death in England.

Chase reads his aura and knows he's withholding something. She's reluctant to accept the job, but the money Fernwood offers will help her company survive.

She and David arrive at Fernwood Manor in the guise of decorators. Only Roman, the Lord's grandson, his solicitor, and two trusted servants know why Chase and David are there. Roman believes his grandfather is playing matchmaker again.

His aura is the most unusual that Chase has seen. She doesn't know he's half vampire and half werewolf. Nor does she know she's half tigris and on the verge of coming into heat.

A male tigris follows hr from the states, planning to claim her for his mate. She's a royal Siberian tigris, which is a higher caste than his Bengal. He works for an ancient vampire, who seeks revenge on Roman Fernwood.

Sparks flare between Roman and Chase, and soon he wants her for his lifelong mate. His integrity demands he inform Drake Gatos, the leader of the local pride, that there's an unmated female tigris at Fernwood Manor.

Right before Chase disappears, Danyer Spects, a California pride leader, shows up to inspect her and to offer his pride's protection. After Chase disappears, vampires and weres join forces to find her.

The romance between Chase and Roman is intense and forever.

I like Pepper's take on Vampire lore and Roman's ability to run four hundred miles an hour.

Romance lovers and fans of paranormal will enjoy this wonderful tale.
