Blood to Dust by L.J. Shen

Dark, gritty, sexy, and dangerous…

Blood to Dust



His name is Beat, and I should hate him.

Bound, blindfolded and bruised, I’m tied in his basement, waiting for the men who stripped me from clothes and humanity to collect his debt to them. Me.

His name is Nate and I should hate him, but I don’t.

I’m not supposed to know his real name, even worse, I’m not supposed to care. He is nothing to me but means to an end. The plan is simple: break free, collect the pieces of my broken soul, kill the bastards and run away.

His name is Nathaniel Thomas Vela, and I’ve never seen his face, though I hear that it’s beautiful

Behind the rugged and handsome exterior, there’s a quiet murderer, a killer who thinks guns are for pussies and ends people with his bare hands.

His name doesn’t matter, neither does his face, but what does matter is my heart. And right now, sadly, it’s his.

Blood to Dust is a standalone, full-length novel. It contains graphic violence and adult situations some may find offensive.


5+ Stars!!!!

Oh my! What did I just read? I think this is the biggest book hangover I’ve ever experienced. I’m not the hugest fan of dark romance, but I loved Sparrow and the book description kept pulling at me. I’m so glad I decided to read it. It’s dark, gritty, sexy, and my heart was beating so fast in some chapters.

Prescott and Nate, the two main characters, are brought together when Prescott is kidnapped because she ticked her ex off. Nate or Beat as he is known is one of the people guarding her and they take a journey that you wouldn’t believe. These two are not hearts and flowers…they are blood and dust. Prescott is smart, sexy, manipulative, and I loved her. In addition, Nate is out of this world sexy, dark, dangerous, and I think he might be my new book husband…sorry, Prescott 🙂

I give the author and Blood to Dust 5+ stars. One-click today and be prepared to read a book that will make you want to go over to the dark side. Nate and Prescott are waiting…start reading!
