From the Author

Interview with the Author  
Q What makes the Dirty Blood series special?

A It's a couple of things. First, I wanted to explore a world where the line between good guys and bad guys became blurred. Werewolves are one of my favorite paranormal creatures--animal instincts make for killer action! And the love story is not what you'd expect. A racial divide combined with all the hormones and feelings of a teenage girl with a stubborn streak and a mysterious guy who has experienced more loss than most people can handle.
The whole series is designed to make you fall in love--with the characters and the story. You'll definitely want to turn the page to find out what happens next and whether they'll kiss or kill!
 
Q Why should readers give this series a try?

A The Dirty Blood series is fun, fast-paced, and the perfect risk--considering book one is currently free! And once you get to the end of book one, I'm willing to bet you'll be hooked.
The series if the perfect blend for lovers of paranormal romance and action/adventure. There's really something in here for everyone.
 
Q Will there be any more books in the series?

A BROKEN BLOOD is the last book in the story of Tara and Wes. There will be a spinoff series coming in 2016 that will chronicle Sam's journey (Tara's human best friend) and some of the existing characters will follow. You can stay updated on info about that by signing up for my mailing list at heatherhildenbrand.com.

And thanks for reading!

The best werewolf/hunter series I have ever read! I am already itching to start the third book. If you liked Dirty Blood, you will love Cold Blood. Tara is sent off to Boarding School and the kids are pretty awful, but Tara finds a couple of good ones in the bunch. I really enjoyed meeting some of the new characters in this story like Logan and Cambria (Cambria Hebert that is, ha ha I see what you did there Heather ;) )And of course, Alex. More on Alex later.

Tara was great in Cold Blood. She is still impulsive as ever, but honestly I don't think I would like her any other way. A few times, I wish she would have given her friends a little more credit, but I get why she was hesitant. Cambria is hilarious. I instantly liked her, just like she instantly liked Tara. I loved it when she said that they were future BFFs on her first day after everyone else was so awful. And Logan is such a sweetie. I just wanted to hug him.

We don't get to see too many of the original characters from the first book because they are still all back at home and still working on Cause things. New setting, new people, but the story was just as great. I was instantly absorbed back into the lives of Tara, Wes, and now Alex. Ok, now lets talk about Alex. Alex is Tara's new trainer at school. We saw him in the warehouse fight very briefly at the end of the first book, but he plays a huge role in this story. He is a new potential love interest for Tara. Making this story officially a love triangle. And just so you know something about me, I am almost ALWAYS team guy #1, which would be Wes. I don't know why. I get to know them first and form attachments to them and then I am loyal to the first guy. But with this story, I found myself liking Alex more and more.

It was good to be back in the world of Hunters and werewolves again, but the only character we really get to see in this story is Tara. It is not like a typical second book which is normally just character development driven. This one introduces a completely new cast of characters and could really stand on its own. If you read it first in the series, you will fall in love with Alex and wonder why Tara even likes Wes. And that is what bothers me about these stupid love triangles - where is the loyalty?

***SPOILERS***

Tara goes to school to learn to be a hunter while Wes stays home to learn how to lead The Cause. Tara's new trainer is sexy senior Alex and it is no mystery that these two are going to be attracted to each other. He has already saved her life in the last book at the wherehouse and ends up saving her life in this book several times. He is attracted to her and knows she has a boyfriend, but can't stay away from her. Wes comes on a full moon to read Tara's thoughts and sees that she has kissed Alex. He is surprisingly understanding about it all.

Love triangles may be interesting plot lines but where is loyalty and faithfulness? Besides this is so sexist. What if Wes was kissing another girl while Tara was at school being faithful? He'd be a jerk so why isn't she? I wish the authors would just have the first couples break up and leave them FREE to pursue another love interest. I kept wishing Wes would tell Tara that he had kissed Victoria while she was on assignment with him and let Tara have a little taste of what that would feel like. Playing with the affections of both boys is wrong and she knows it.

Wes has to deal with a lot for the Cause behind the scenes and apparently finds it more important than keeping Tara safe.

Wow, its not often a sequel is even better then the first book but Cold Blood was amazing!

Tara is shipped off to a boarding Hunter school. Wes is in training to take over The Cause. Miles is still out there and leaving Tara threatening messages . Tara has to learn to fight. She also has to deal with everyone at her new school hating her and making fun of her for being a Dirty Blood. Then we meet a lot of new characters that I totally loved.

I remember that I loved Wes from book 1 but in book 2, I am like Wes who? I am totally in love with Alex! I love him. And I think he is great for Tara. He treats her like an equal when Wes sends her a babysitter to watch her every move. Alex is just great and I really loved every time him and Tara where together. You will just have to see it for yourself.

I totally think you should read book 1 first. That way you have the whole story or you might be a little confused. Both of these books were great and I really enjoyed them. I am super excited for book 3. This leaves you off on a cliffhanger and I really want to know what is going to happen. Something is obviously changing in Tara, what will happen to George and will Tara choose to try it out with Alex (please say yes!) Great book!!!!

Just wow! I am so impressed with this series and its twists and turns! I find that the different types of tensions between characters is actually very realistic and added a great deal to the story. Great heroine, dealing well with the information she has.
