Tour! A Review & Giveaway of Blood Debt by Nancy Straight

Blood Debt (Touched #1) by Nancy Straight
Genre: Young/New Adult (Mythological Romance)
Date Published: July 15, 2012
Publisher: Self

The Blurb:
Her whole life, it had just been the two of them. Before her mother’s last breath, she gave Camille the information she had craved her entire life: the identity of her father. Daring to contact him, Camille was welcomed by an entire family she never knew existed. But nothing comes without a price, as she discovers when her family claims a legendary heritage tracing back to a centaur touched by Zeus.

As she learns the secrets of her Centaur bloodline, she is drawn into a forbidden love with Drake. Her life may be the blood debt required to pay for her mother’s transgressions. The same person who once held her mother captive, and forced her into decades of hiding, now controls Camille. Her only chance is to seek a piece of her mother’s past that will win her freedom and the life she desperately wants.

My Review:
Blood Debt is the first book in the Touched Series by Nancy Straight. I loved this book! LOVED it! From the very beginning I was glued to this world of Centaurs, forbidden loves, and mythology. The story brought mythological creatures to present day and made them feel very real and believable. The character and story building was flawless. I felt like I became a part of Camille's life while reading. The romances were sweet and they were also dramatic in a sense, but not in a bad way. There were unexpected twists and moments of pure shock! I love when a book surprises me. The Centaurs feel very strongly and that crossed over to the reader. They really brought out your emotions. From extreme anger to sadness to happiness and love and back again. Blood Debt had me giggling and crying and sometimes both on the same page! Nancy Straight has a new fan!

About the Author:
I LOVE Starbucks’ White Mocha Latte and Mountain Dew, (but not together). I have a lead foot so I set cruise control when I drive, even in 25 MPH zones. I almost never win when I play Angry Birds, but have my 8 year old close, so he can clear the hard levels for me. I grew up on a farm and am opposed to eating fresh chicken (not opposed to meat - just opposed to any meat that was alive a few hours before lunch). I am a huge fan of the show, Big Bang Theory, on CBS. I have a stray cat that I feed every night and morning but she’s never let me get closer than within 3 feet of her – I keep thinking eventually I’ll wear her down and she’ll let me pet her. I share my life with two fantastic sons, three rotten dogs and a husband that I adore.
