Bonded By Blood Characters - Davina MacDougalBio: Davina MacDougal

Lady MacDougal…not an easy life…

…but a life Davina wouldn’t trade for the world. Married to Broderick MacDougal for seventeen years now at the opening of Midnight Captive, Davina has had a passionate and loving relationship with her immortal husband. However, it has also been wrought with peril due to Angus Campbell’s relentless pursuit for revenge. In spite of the danger, Davina has learned to grow as human being as Broderick’s love has slowly coaxed her out of her shell and overcome the abuse of the past. And she is most grateful for the father he has been to her daughter Cailin, who is now a woman grown…and it is almost as if she was from the very loins of Broderick MacDougal, for Cailin has inherited his fiery spirit and determination to defend those he loves. They truly have become a close family in the shadows of the paranormal world around them.

Most Popular Quote from Davina MacDougal

“I want you to taste my soul, Broderick.” She held her breath for a moment before whispering, “Feed from me.”
Said to her husband, Broderick MacDougal during their lovemaking in Midnight Captive, Book 2 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles  - Click to Tweet

Facts About Davina MacDougal NOT in the Books

Davina is the granddaughter of Annabella Stewart, daughter to King James Stewart I. Annabella was once married to the 2nd Earl of Huntly, who divorced her on the grounds of consanguinity (having the same ancestry or descent; related by blood). At the time, the Earl of Huntly was having an affair with Elizabeth Hay. Before the ink was even dry on the divorce papers, the Earl married his mistress. Annabella’s heart was broken and she turned to her brother’s son, King James III, King of Scots, for refuge. Though they weren’t very close, James took pity on his aunt and accepted her back into the royal household. Seeking solace in the arms of another man, Annabella became with child, but died giving birth to Parlan Stewart, Davina’s father. James III was not known for being a very compassionate man, but wasn’t cruel enough to turn an infant away, especially one of royal blood, illegitimate or not. Parlan was raised in Edinburgh Castle and one year later, James IV, the next King of Scotland and Parlan’s cousin, was born and they became nursery mates. And thus is Davina’s loose connection to the crown.

Midnight Eclipse - Book 4 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire ChroniclesBook Blurb

Broderick MacDougal follows the familiar yearning of his soul to a fierce warrior who is as seductive as a siren at sea – and she is just as deadly. The world of the supernatural opens to Broderick as he not only finds himself in the midst of an ancient war of shapeshifters, but the devious Cordelia Lynn Harley has re-entered his life and has a few of her own surprises.

Born into a hated race of Norse wolf shifters, Celina Hunter knows all too well the dangers of trusting anyone other than her two brothers. And yet the survival of her family hinges on trusting the strangely familiar vampire, a natural enemy of her kind yet her tribe’s Shaman advisers confirm he is her soul mate. Enemy or not, Celina slips into the spell of Broderick’s promises of eternal love, gambling with all she holds dear.

Broderick and Celina are bound by a curse, but having come this far through the centuries, Broderick is not about to risk his chance at having his soul mate for eternity. The price, however, may be more than Celina is willing to pay as there is more at stake than just her immortal soul. Click to Tweet

Bonded By Blood Characters - James KnightlyBio: James Knightly

You had me at swords!

James Knightly didn’t have the greatest example of a father…at least until he met Broderick MacDougal, their new business partner. Together they formed MacDougal & Knightly Shipping Company. Alistair Knightly was a drunk and hard on his son James, but his behavior was manageable until his wife, Fiona, was murdered. James’s father lost himself in the bottle and eventually laudanum, trying to numb the pain of losing his wife. Unfortunately, that meant he neglected James. Broderick understood his business partner’s woes, so did what he could to be there for James until Alistair recovered from his grief. Unfortunately, the years of neglect dragged on. As a result, James ended up looking more and more to Broderick through the years. Because of their friendship and father/son relationship, James grew into a fine young man…someone Broderick was proud to consider as a good candidate for Cailin’s husband, and the main reason he funded James’s schooling to become a fencing master. Broderick’s daughter would need all the protection Broderick could provide.

Most Popular Quote from James Knightly

He swallowed hard. “If you do not close your bodice, my dear, I cannot be held responsible for my actions.”
Said to Cailin MacDougal right before she and James dueled in Midnight Captive, Book 2 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles  - Click to Tweet

Facts About James Knightly NOT in the Books

James and Cailin are at odds for most of the novel and one of the main reasons is Cailin is trying to be something she is not – a doting wife who knows how to embroider and run a household, a woman of her time. Cailin is everything but that, but she thinks that’s exactly what James wants. What she doesn’t realize, and why she and James are always butting heads, is her very actions are hitting hot buttons for her betrothed. Though this is hinted at a few times in Midnight Captive, it is never really spelled out: James’s father Alistair, as mentioned above, was a drunk and very hard on his son. He was also a gambler and a selfish man, squandering the family money on his habits. However, whenever Alistair was around other people – especially Broderick – he would pretend to be a loving and supportive father to impress other people. Such acts were strictly for his benefit. What pained James the most was when he was younger, he believed his father was being loving and supportive…and then his actions behind closed doors were the complete opposite. Confusing in his younger years to be sure, such behavior eventually brewed resentment in James. Fake people are James’s pet peeve…and why Cailin’s attempts at being someone she is not grates on James’s nerves so badly.

Bonded By Blood Characters - Cailin MacDougalBio: Cailin MacDougal

Tagger-Toting Hellion

As a toddler, Cailin took to Broderick immediately and she became the daughter he dreamed of having. Growing up as the adopted daughter of a Vamsyrian, though, had its trauma and tribulations. Taking matters into her own hands, she insisted her father teach her hand-to-hand combat.

However, twirling daggers became second nature and wielding a needle for embroidery a pretty scary task now. How’s a girl in early Renaissance supposed to woo her betrothed when she can’t even run a household or stitch a cushion to save her life?

Most Popular Quote from Cailin MacDougal

“Unless you wish to keep your private jewels intact,” she warned, “I suggest you keep your distance, sir.” With her dagger at his groin, she tilted the silver-plated blade up to make her point.
Said to James Knightly in Midnight Captive, Book 2 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles  – Click to Tweet

Facts About Cailin MacDougal NOT in the Books

Cailin lived a life of fear in spite of being surrounded by love. With Angus Campbell always trying to hurt Broderick by hurting those he loved, their lives were always in danger. At the age of fourteen, Cailin wrote this in her journal:

“I love sailing across the sea, screeching with excitement at the dips and drops of the boat going over the waves and the salty water splashing on my face. Out there, no one can harm me and I’m not looking over my shoulder, wondering who is shadowing me or who is trying to kill me. On the water, I am with my father and mother and the people we trust and love. We laugh, play games, and tell stories. And when my father holds my mother as if she is the most precious being on earth, when I see the love they have for each other that goes deeper than their touch, I weep tears of joy that she has found her soul mate. Although it is sad for me, I’m okay with it. It’s not meant for me and I cannot be selfish to hate what she has just because it was meant for her. Even though James and I are betrothed, I cannot allow myself to think we’ll be together because marrying him would put his life in danger.”

Bonded By Blood Characters - Angus CampbellBio: Angus Campbell

Villain or Tortured Hero??

Angus is the bastard son of Alyssa Campbell, who died when she gave birth to Angus’s brother, Ewan. Raised by his spiteful step-father, Fraser Campbell, Angus has forever been reminded of his illegitimacy. Fraser made sure Angus never forgot who his father was, how he was abandoned and what he would never receive because Angus was not Broderick MacDougal.

Wars between the Campbells and MacDougals have made Angus a war-toughed Scotsman with a heart full of vengeance…and immortality was his path to revenge. But he feels completely justified by his vengeance…for reasons slowly being revealed throughout the series.

Most Popular Quote from Angus Campbell

“Huz-zah!” Snapping his head toward Jasper, he said, “What is this laudanum?”

Bonded By Blood Characters - Rosselyn & NicabarBio: Rosselyn Buchanan

Destined to be a Gypsy?

Rosselyn Buchanan grew up in the household at Stewart Glen, two years older than her best friend and mistress, Davina Stewart. The girls were more like sisters and Rosselyn has been there for Davina as a playmate and emotional support. And so watching her dear friend be subjected to the abusive relationship of Davina’s arranged marriage was almost more than she could stand. It’s no wonder Rosselyn plays the matchmaker when Broderick MacDougal comes along. Little did Rosselyn know she would end up being swept of her feet by the charming Spanish Gypsy, Nicabar Mendoza.

Most Popular Quote from Rosselyn Buchanan

“My sweet friend, falling in love is allowing yourself to be vulnerable enough to open your heart. Love is taking risks. If you want the love you have been dreaming of for so long, you must be willing to get hurt.”
Said to Davina Stewart-Russell in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet

Bio: Nicabar Mendoza

Charming Spanish Gypsy

Nicabar has been with the Gypsies most of his life, having joined them when he was a wandering pickpocket in Barcelona. He is a passionate man who is devoted to his band of Gypsies, but has a bit of a wild streak and has never been tied down to any one person. However…Rosselyn – the beautiful Scot lady who caught his eye – is woman whose passion matches his own. She just might be the one to win his wild heart.

Most Popular Quote from Nicabar Mendoza

“The giant dukker is a strange man of dark secrets, not someone you should seek.” With a raised eyebrow, the corner of his mouth turned up in a devilish smile. “But my warnings may not deter a woman such as you, with fire in her eyes and passion in her heart.” He closed the distance. “Pursuing a mysterious stranger may be exactly what you seek.”
Said to Rosselyn Buchanan in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet

Facts About Rosselyn & Nicabar NOT in the Books

Toward the beginning of Midnight Conquest, the Gypsies come to the little village of Stewart Glen and Rosselyn explores the camp and all its festivities with her mistress, Davina. Though hinted at when Davina is older, it’s never shown that during the next few weeks the Gypsies are visiting, Rosselyn and Davina go down several times to the camp to sit with Amice and share tea or break bread together. Even back then, Rosselyn dreamt of being a Gypsy and it was the adventures Amice shared – about the cities to which they traveled across Europe and the people they met – that fueled Rosselyn’s desire to be one of them. Though Rosselyn had thought about running away with them, in the end couldn’t bare to leave knowing she might never see Davina again.

Nicabar was ten years old, a hungry orphan on the streets of Barcelona, when he picked someone’s pocket for the first time. Unfortunately, he was discovered…but not yet caught. The young boy ran for his life, slipping through the vendor carts and passersby in the marketplace. When Nicabar rounded the corner and ducked into an alley, he was sure to escape…but collided with Amice and Monique half-way down the alley. Nicabar felt horrible that he’d knocked down an older woman and, while trying to help her up, the man he’d robbed caught up with him. Monique used her charms to persuade the gentleman into believing the young boy was with them. Amice scolded their new companion while Monique made a promise to meet the man later and to forget about the small pittance of money the boy pilfered. Lucky for Nicabar, the Gypsies were spending their last night in Barcelona They took Nicabar back to their camp where he gorged on a hot meal and their pleasant company. Amice said he could work off the meal if he stayed with them…and could find a home with the Gypsies if he promised to be a hard worker. He would have starved and eventually been hung for stealing if he had not run into Amice and Monique. Nicabar has been with the Gypsies every since.

Bonded By Blood Characters - Amice & VeroniqueBio: Amice Cartier

A Gypsy…and so much more!

Amice Cartier and Broderick MacDougal crossed paths when Broderick rescued her granddaughter Veronique from drowning at the age of five. Amice was eternally grateful to Broderick, but her sixth senses told her what he was and she, at first, shied away from him. Vamsyrians are not known for their generosity and compassion, so Amice took a chance to become more social with Broderick and invited him to sit by their fire to dry off from the river…and she read his palm. Even then, Amice told Broderick how unique he was, especially amongst his own kind, though Broderick still is not certain exactly how different he is or why. However, the nurturing Amice expressed was something Broderick needed at the time. As a result, he felt drawn to her and accepted her invitation to join their band of traveling vagabonds. Over the years, Amice became somewhat of a replacement for Broderick’s mother, Moira. Amice taught Broderick how to perfect his mind-reading abilities granted by immortality, and he learned palm reading in order to compliment his supernatural gifts. With Amice telling fortunes by day, and Broderick telling them at night, they made a very good team!

Most Popular Quote from Amice Cartier

“You just keep invading my mind and we will see how fiery I can get! I will cast a spell on you, and you…you will fall in love with a chicken!” She nodded emphatically.
A curse Amice said to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet 

Bio: Veronique Cartier

Yep! She’s a bee-otch!

Veronique Cartier did start out as a cute, young child. Unfortunately, her grandmother Amice spoiled her to make up for the loss of her daughter Monique, and perhaps even doted on her granddaughter as a salve to her guilty conscience for not being able to save Monique from her self-destructive behavior (see below). When Broderick MacDougal came into Veronique’s life, he was a larger-than-life, knight in shining armor who rescued her from a watery grave. With an overly affectionate and spoiling grandmother and a rogue of a Gypsy for a male role model, poor Veronique didn’t have much of a chance at being a very loving woman. Her upbringing unknowingly produced a very selfish little girl who just wanted to be loved…and she’d do anything to get that love. Such is the stage that is set for Midnight Conquest and Davina’s misfortune at having crossed the path of this self-centered Gypsy.

Most Popular Quote from Veronique Cartier

The young French girl’s voice dropped to a desperate whisper. “I give you my blood and my heart.” Stepping closer to him, she opened her blouse, baring her breasts. “And my body.”

Facts About Amice & Veronique NOT in the Books

Readers will FINALLY get to learn what happened to Monique! Read on…oh, and please Click to Tweet!

The life of a Gypsy was all Amice had ever known. Her mother Anna Ribault was a French Gypsy, who fell in love with an aristocrat in Paris. Unfortunately, the nobleman only used Anna for his own pleasures. When Anna told him they would be having a child together, a product of their love, he banished Anna from his presence. This, of course, broke Anna’s heart and she acted rashly, exposing the nobleman for his callous behavior. Unfortunately, as a Gypsy Anna was ridiculed and the nobleman’s wife ordered Anna stoned in the city square. Anna’s Gypsy clan rescued her from the public execution and they all fled Paris. Anna never told Amice who her father was.

Amice grew up amongst the French Gypsies, where she eventually fell in love with Maurice Cartier, her childhood friend and one of the Gypsies in her clan. They had a daughter, Monique. Maurice died in a horse riding accident when Monique was just thirteen, so she went into deep despair over losing her father. Unfortunately, that caused Monique to look for the affection of men…who were many, either in spite of or a direct result of Amice’s strict hold on her daughter. Monique became pregnant with Veronique – father unknown.

Amice ended up rearing her granddaughter due to Monique’s obsession with finding someone to love her. Monique’s pursuit for romance led her into the bed of a Selkie male named Amund Osvald. Once Monique discovered what he was, she found his seal skin and hid it from him. Though Selkie women are known for being bound to a human male in such a situation, male Selkies are not so forgiving or compliant. No matter what Amice said to get Monique to return the Selkie’s skin, Monique refused and was confident she had finally found her true love who could never leave her as long as she always kept the skin concealed. Her hidden treasure would be the death of her. Amund found the skin and killed Monique before he returned to the sea.

Veronique was too young to understand what happened to her mother and thought Amund had taken her mother with him to the sea…so she went into the river looking for her mother. And that is how Broderick saved Veronique from drowning.

Midnight Conquest - Davina Stewart-RussellBio: Davina Stewart-Russell

Not a lady born, but a lady raised…

…Davina Stewart was born to Parlan and Lilias at Stewart Glen in the Lowlands of Scotland, just northeast of Aberdeen. Davina is the youngest of her and her brother, Kehr.

Due to her loose connections to the crown through her father, she was betrothed to Ian Russell – a marriage that benefited her brother and father with wealth, while Parlan promised coveted contacts for Ian and his father, Munro. However, Ian has proven to use a heavy hand to rule over Davina. In spite of pleas toward her father to dissolve the marriage, she is forced to endure her union for the sake of their financial wellbeing. In a time where a woman is property to her family and spouse, Davina endures with a silent strength when she has exhausted all other avenues, and maintains her dignity in the face of oppression.

But there is one image in her mind that has been her anchor through the years. The handsome Gypsy she met as a young girl – Broderick. He had warned her of the dark times to come when he read her palm, and said she would endure if she held to an image of strength. Little did he or Davina know Broderick would be that rock she would cling to, the light that would give her hope through those dark times.

Most Popular Quote from Davina Stewart-Russell

“Your name—MacDougal means Son of the Dark Stranger, if I’m not mistaken.” She pursed her lips and crossed her arms. “How appropriate.” 
Said to Broderick MacDougal in Midnight Conquest, Book 1 of the Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Click to Tweet 

Fact About Davina Stewart-Russell NOT in the Books

In Midnight Conquest, there is a scene where Broderick is being a bit of a peeping Tom and is mesmerized by Davina standing in a tub of shallow water, cleansing herself from the day. However, the scars on her body and the odd angle of her left arm take Broderick out of this sensual moment and ignite a protective anger in him over the obvious signs of abuse. Davina’s left arm was indeed broken, as Broderick had observed. She had gone to her father-in-law to inform him of Ian’s abusive behavior. Munro said he would speak with Ian on her behalf. Later that evening, Ian had a fight with his father Munro and, as punishment, Munro denied him funds. Ian became very drunk and took his anger out on Davina with his fists, then shoved her down a short flight of stairs where she broke her arm on the fall. This was the night of her first miscarriage.
