Rispa is running from an abusive husband and she is trying to hide from him in New Orleans. Hiding in plain sight seemed like a good idea and the Big Easy was the perfect place to do that with the large crowds of diverse people. On her first day there she stumbles across an unusual bar and she decides to visit it again that evening. The bar gives off a powerful vibe that pulls her and the same time repels her. After being frightened by the unusual woman she meets while trying to find the wine bar, Rispa leaves quickly. The next day she comes across a small boutique called Aunt Tee’s Attic and when she touches the door knob she hears a voice saying her name, the clerk’s name is Onyx.
A feeling of familiarity surrounds Rispa as Onyx introduces herself and kisses Rispa’s hand. Onyx realizes that this is the woman she has been dreaming about for and waiting on. There is an electric current that flows between the two of them and it feels super charged. Onyx ask her out to dinner and Rispa accepts the invitation. Onyx tells her that the hotel she is staying is said to be haunted. She continues to tell Rispa about the dark side of New Orleans; the cemetery tours, the vampire tours, the ghost tours and of course the street performers. Onyx feels the fear that is rolling through Rispa and wonders what has such a hold on her.
The two women talk about the store and how it sells some of the seedier items needed for the BDSM lifestyle. Rispa admits that she is unfamiliar with that lifestyle and knows nothing about it. Onyx has the ability to read people and she cannot understand how Rispa’s emotions are blocked from her. Something or someone is after Rispa and she is determined to find out the secrets that are being hidden. Read this book to find out where the voices are coming from that Rispa is hearing and what happens between the two women!

***Received an ARC of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review***
When I was asked to review this book, I said yes. It looked familiar, and it was on my to-read list on Goodreads, so I didn't think too much about it when I started reading it. It wasn't until I finished it that I realized that this was the newly published author that Gracen Miller had bossed me to check out. Which brings me to a point...
This is Cozie W. Harmon's first book! Wow! I'm very impressed and, Gracen, thank you for bossing me to give into your whims!
Onyx was, hands down, my favorite. She was awesome.
There are times where I feel it was a bit confusing, especially where Rispa was concerned. Either it was a little rushed or I missed something, but I had to go back a re-read some parts a few times.
For the most part, it was an exciting read and I can't wait to read more from this author. 4/5 Platypires
I loved both characters immediately but I fell for Onyx faster than Rispa. There was just something about all the mystery around her that I found myself caught up in her story and wanting to know all about her. Don’t get me wrong I loved Rispa too I totally felt her loneliness as she ran from the person she thought loved her only to find out he was not at all what she thought. From the very start I was pulled into the fight Rispa and Onyx had to try and make this lifetime work for them but when the enemy is closing in quicker can they actually make it? To know that you will have to read the book to see if fate was on their side or was cruel and makes them wait another life time to be together.
With well thought out characters and a love that transcends many life times Blood & Roses will leave you glued to the very last page holding your breath. This is defiantly one of my favorite reads this year and I am looking forward to reading more from Cozie in the future. 5/5 Bloody Fangs
