Spotlight on Iuliana Foos

Carly's View welcomes author Iuliana Foos. You may remember her from a few months ago. She is back today to feature her newest release, Bloodline Destinies. Both this book and the first book of the series, Bloodline Origins, are available on Amazon.

Iuliana was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania, She currently lives with her husband in San Antonio, Texas.

When she doesn’t daydream or write, she enjoys drinking copious amounts of coffee and playing online multi-player games, hoping one day to have a white sanded beach as her backyard.

Blurb of Bloodline Destinies:

In the year 2516 humans share Earth with elusive vampires and GeMs—a new species of blood-drinkers who appeared after the Flood.

Months before his five-hundredth birthday, Theodor De Croix, Prince of The Old Coven, crosses paths with Vivienne. Torn between proving himself worthy of his bloodline and centuries-old beliefs about true love, he saves her life but rejects the idea that she might be sent to him by fate itself.

Vivienne is a human scientist turned GeM in an accident. Body and mind forever altered, she struggles every day to adapt to her new life. Attracted to the man who saved her, but fearing his kind, she finds herself in more danger than ever.

Caught up in a whirlwind of dreams and evil plots, both must confront their own demons in order to save each other, testing the powers of fate and love.

Excerpt from Bloodline Destinies:

Vivienne took a step back. Her eyes opened wide with a mix of fear and doubt.
“Vampire . . . A monster . . .” she whispered in visible disbelief. “Are you going to kill me?”

“Of course not. Why would I do that?”

Theodor followed all her thoughts. As much as he detested invading anyone’s mind, this time he needed to know.

“Is it not what vampires do? I never believed they even existed.”

“It isn’t what we do. We have, in fact, watched over humans for centuries.” 

Theodor took a step closer to her. “In the old times, yes, my kind used to feed on human blood, but not anymore.” His voice softened. “You’re safe. I won’t hurt you.”

She continued to retreat. Her fear hit him in waves.

“I’m sorry, but I don’t believe you.”

She panicked. Her pupils dilated, her pulse accelerated, and her heartbeat became erratic. The attempt to put some distance between them failed.

Theodor hissed, displaying his long, white fangs.

Vivienne whirled on her heels. Her hair danced around her shoulders, and a few strands covered part of her face.

Theodor cut off her way to the exit. His hands grabbed her shoulders. Damn, she needs to eat more.

“Viv, I will not hurt you. I would—”

“You’re a blood-sucking monster,” she yelled with tears running down her face, trying to free herself from his firm hold.

Her words shouldn’t have surprised or hurt him. Humans called vampires all sorts of names. He knew since the day he found out what he was how much humans feared and hated his kind. So, why did her words hurt? Why did they feel like a slap to his face?
