[Review] Blood Debt by Nancy Straight

About the Book: 
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 family acknowledges 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 desires.

My Review:  I loved Nancy Straight's Meeting Destiny series, so I was really excited to read her new book Blood Debt in the Touched series.  Nancy Straight's books are unique paranormal romance.  Blood Debt is no different.  Our heroine, Cami, learns upon her mother's death that she is Centaur.  I haven't read anything like this before. 

Cami's mom dies, and with her last breath, tells her who her father is - information she has always previously withheld.  Cami struggles with herself on whether or not to call her father, but eventually gives in.  Next thing she knows she is flying out to meet him and her five brothers.  She discovers that she is a centaur, and that she has powers. 

Cami meets Drake at her brother's wedding.  The two fall in love, though it is a forbidden love.  I love their interactions and how sweet Drake is to Cami.  In addition to this forbidden love and learning her new powers, Cami founds out that there is a blood debt, that she is required to pay, for something her mother did in the past.  Will Drake and Cami overcome their obstacles?  Will Cami find away to get out of this blood debt?  Who can she trust?  Will she master her powers?  Find out the answers to these questions and more by reading the wonderfully written Blood Debt by Nancy Straight.

She spent ten years traveling the world as a US Marine and settled in rural SC.  She has two fantastic son, three rotten dogs and an amazing husband.  When not writing she enjoys RVing with her family, swimming and reading all types of romance genres.  Her favorite is paranormal romance.
