Publisher's Summary

What choice do you make when those you've vowed to protect refuse to be protected?

Dead women are showing up in the desert east of San Diego, and no one understands why. When the story comes to the attention of reporter Natalie Ellis, she can't help but make comparisons to the tragic deaths she'd investigated years ago. Are these women the victims of a serial killer, or something even more insidious?

Bodies may be piling up in his sire's territory, but water vampire and feared enforcer, Baojia, is stuck entertaining the rich and clueless at a club in San Diego. He's taken his exile with all the grace he could muster, but his patience is starting to thin.

Sparks fly when mortal and immortal are thrown together, and Natalie comes face to face with a reality that was lurking in the corners of her life. Pursuing the truth could cost Baojia everything, including the mortal woman who has earned his grudging respect.

Blood and Sand is the second novel in the expanded Elemental World series by Elizabeth Hunter, author of the best-selling Elemental Mysteries.

Horrible Narration

I download audiobooks regularly to listen to while I work. I have read and listened to a few of Elizabeth Hunter's other books and have thoroughly enjoyed them! The narration of Blood and Sand was the worst narration yet! While the storyline was predictable, yet acceptable, I simply could not listen to the book in its entirety. If there were a way to return it, I most definitely would!

Our favorite bodyguard Boajia finds his mate

Baojia has been banished from LA for the last 3 years by Don Ernesto Alvarez after his granddaughter Bea was injured. Baojia was guarding Bea when she and her husband Gio traveled to China.But trouble has found Baojia, just over the border in Mexico, and nearby, in the form of sexy Ace Reporter Natalie Ellis. Pearlman does an ok job of narration.

Good book

Any additional comments?

I enjoyed this book, but out of all of the elemental and elemental world books, this was my least favorite....but still ranks a 4 out of 5 star rating. The story line was a little predictable, but yet different. It's good, just not the best. Ms. Hunter is a fantastic writer who sucks you into the world of good and bad vampires. Great character development and flow to the story. I was a title surprised that the main character left his sire though, that did surprise me.

Plot holes you can dive a truck through.

The prose of the story was good and it got me through 90% of the story but as my title states the plot just gets stupid. I would like to explain except that would lead to spoilers which I despise.

fantastic

I have really enjoyed this series. The story line is easy to follow. It's funny, dramatic, intense, sassy, and romantic.
