Blood Rose by Jacquelynn Gagne


It’s true no one can out run Death. But Death doesn’t always want your existence. In Lianna’s case wants her mortality.
Long have Lianna’s dreams been a window into another time. A place that is as magnificent as it is dark. Frightened and weary from the physical toll the nightmares take on her body she turns to her psychic friend for guidance, which results in prophetic visions of Lianna’s death.
Mercenaries come after Lianna to stop her from fulfilling her fate. A destiny at her beloved’s side while rediscovering the real magic within her. Facing demise brought down on her by the hands of the mercenaries, the power of love offers her a new life as a vampire which ultimately fulfills the same epic fate the murderous villains fought to keep her from.


1) What is the working title of your current/next book? 
New Blood will be out in April of 2014 book 2 of the Blood Saga. I plan to publish another book this year but we haven’t decided which one.

2) Where did the idea come from? 
I honestly couldn’t say. It just comes to me and I write.

3) What genre does your book fall under? 

4) What actors would you choose to play the part of your characters in a movie rendition? 
Ohhh I havent been asked this one yet.  Wentworth Miller, from Prison Break as Damien. Or Channing Tatum. Mila Kunis as Lianna.

5) What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Death doesn’t always want your eternal sleep- Sometimes Death just wants your eternity.

6) Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency? 
Represented by Midnight Hour Publishing

7) How long did it take you to write the first draft? 
Ohhhh a couple months. I don’t really recall. Book 3’s first draft just took 6 weeks.

8) What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?   
I would say… True Blood meets Dan Brown.

9) Who or what inspired you to write this book?   
A movie. I won’t say which one because my primary thought was, I could do better. haha

10) What else about the book might pique the reader’s interest? 
There’s a lot of spirituality in my book and I hope people follow that. It’s not just a love story this is about someone’s spiritual awakening and accepting herself and building herself into a woman she herself can respect. 

Damien is an extremely good looking guy who comes into her work every say, always sits in her section and pretty much has an obsession with her.  Yet, they have barely ever talked.  Then he starts working there.  Things go from there.  He drives her home from work one night, and wouldn’t you know it, over time she falls for him…lol

  One night Damien is out of town and Lianna is attacked, he world unravels fast from that night on .  She finds stuff out about her new bf that she never imagined.
She gets brought into a world and a family that she never thought existed and becomes, herself, one of them. Little by little her life falls apart, she gains a family, loses herself in the meantime, finds out stuff she never would have dreamed..well……you need to read the series to find out more…lol

There was an alley to the right. Too small for the car, or could he follow? Would it be a dead end and he’d have me cornered? It was my only chance. I lunged for its opening.
My knee gave as my foot twisted off the curb sending me stumbling forward. My arms thrust out instinctively. I landed snapping my wrist back. They hadn’t softened the blow to my face as I hit the cold wet concrete.
Blood spattered from my nose and mouth. My lungs were too fatigued to even muster a scream. Instead this sickened pathetic whimper gurgled out through the stream of blood.
As I lay there, trying to muster enough will to get up, the tires squealed to a stop right next to me. My ears rang in a high-pitched echo combined with the sound of my blood rushing in my ears. “Anna!”
My whole body shook violently when I heard a rough baritone voice scream my name in an intense rage. There was no way I could run from him anymore. Would I die here? Would he take me somewhere else to prolong my suffering? How long would it take?
Another dark thought. Is this what Neesa and her mother had seen?
Futilely my eyes closed. If I had to be conscious, I refused to watch my own death. “Anna! Look at me!” One hand held onto my shoulder turning me slowly as another hand carefully took a hold of my chin, tilting it up and making me cough on my own blood.
“No.” Worthlessly defiant. I gurgled coughing on the blood filling my mouth relentlessly.
 “Alright. Just hang on. I’m going to move you, okay,” his voice filled with laughter. Though weak and painful, it flooded with the sound of relief.
“No!” The scream was weak and sprayed blood as I spoke. My hand shot up defensively swiping at his face to try to push him away from me. The hand at my chin released to take my wrist gently.
