GHBT- Review- Scorned & Hunted by Tyffani Clark Kemp

Book Info-

Title- Scorned
Series- LeKrista Scott, Vampire Hunted Series #1
Publication  Date- October 15th, 2013
Genre- Paranormal/Vampires


LeKrista Scott has killed a vampire, and now his lover wants revenge.

After months of watching her from the shadows, Lucretious, a millennia old vampire, finally makes his attack during a party thrown by his maker, Roman - a party where Roman proclaims his protection over LeKrista. Roman steps in and saves her life, but not before she deals Lucretious the true death in front of his lover, Perdita. Now LeKrista is running for her life and Roman is trying to save it, but she’s not sure if he really cares or if he has some underhanded reason for keeping her alive. She seeks help from Mages but they refuse to help her, even though she exhibits high potential as a Mage herself. In a last ditch effort, Roman whisks LeKrista away, but Perdita finds them. LeKrista must eliminate Perdita one way or another.

I'm going to start this off with my honest opinion on vampires-- They are overdone. It is unlikely to come up with something original when they've been done by about every author you can name. Don't get me wrong, I still have a weak spot for a good bloodsucker novel every now and then, but it's usually my go-to when I'm not looking for something to blow me away. It's kind of impossible to hook me like Kemp did.

That being said, I need to eat my words. Scorned is a vampire novel, yes, but it's a TOTALLY different take on the genre. I have read my share of vampires and never have I come across something as awesome as this. LeKrista, especially, is the epitome of a perfect heroine. She is strong and sassy as ever, and I LOVE her. She managed to keep me laughing even in the darkest corners of this book. I adored every minute of this novel! Even if you are sick to death of vampires, you should give this one a shot!

P.S. Cover love. Hullo. And it looks so pretty on the blog, doesn't it? *heart-eyes*

Title- Hunted
Series- LeKrista Scott, Vampire Hunted Series #2
By- Tyffani Clark Kemp
Expected Publication Date- April 16th, 2014
Genre- Paranormal/Vampires


LeKrista Scott survived three separate vampire attacks, almost drowned, and turned down her boyfriend's proposal. What else could possibly go wrong?

Apparently, if it's not one thing, it's another. Lizette, a brand new vampire with a grudge, blames LeKrista for being turned into a monster. In retaliation, she decides to go straight for the throat, so to speak, and attack LK's ailing mother at her rest home. LeKrista enlists the help of her "Vampire liason" Roman, but it could never be that easy. Not for her.

A daywalker, a born vampire who can walk in the sun, has been hired by the head of the Vampire Counsel to collect LeKrista and the debt she owes him. As payment, her great great aunt is taken. Once again, the Mages refuse to help, so what is a girl to do, but rescue her family herself?

With her back against the wall, LeKrista will rise up stronger and teach the preternatural world to fear the Vampire Hunted.


Excuse me, I don't usually use .gifs in blog posts, but DAMN, I just-- I have to this time. 


I didn't think Kemp could top Scorned. Sequels always have a bit of a disadvantage with me; I'm usually afraid to read them, especially when I loved the first novel, because I always feel they can never measure up to the epicness that was book one. NOT the case here. 

LeKrista has REALLY grown since we last saw her in Scorned, all for the better (I know, I can't believe it either) and she's gotten even more interesting. We learn a lot more about her and her family, and her very sexy friends (*ahem*), but it's not to the point where it's gotten boring. The story keeps up with the suspense and tension, and keeps me continuously guessing throughout the book.

I really don't even know what to say here. Kemp has rendered my speechless, for one, and the story is SO complex I am genuinely concerned I'm going to f*ck up and accidentally reveal something I shouldn't. *chews nails* And I truly would hate myself if I wrecked this book for anyone...

Okay, long story short-- Scroll up, buy Scorned, read it, love it, live it, and then get right into this. Please. Really. Do yourselves a favor and listen to me, okay?

Now.... When does Conquered come out?
