Blood Moon Rising is about a vampire mother who must save her dhampir son from death by finding the blood of his human father before the next full moon.
Although Blood Moon Rising is a paranormal romance, the romantic elements of the plot interest me less than the mother/son dynamic. In this age of divorce, blended families, and single-parents, the relationship between a parent and child often comes before or between a romantic interest, whether that romantic interest is a one-night stand or a marriage.
Valkyrie’s abandoned by her lover before the novel opens, but she has her son, Anthony, whom she’s had since birth. That bond between them is strong, probably a lot stronger than it would be if Valkyrie had a mate. But parenthood is not designed to hold the same tension as a romance, and eventually the friction between Anthony’s desire for independence and Valkyrie’s desire for connection threaten to tear them apart. Anthony’s illness and his need for his mother to locate his father only complicate matters, as does Valkyrie’s growing love for Bill, a human, who may or may not be Anthony’s father.
