Blog Tour + Excerpt + Giveaway + Review: Ruby by Jettie Necole


Synopsis
A historical romance begins to blossom around Lady Ruby Waterfield, but family secrets and unpredictable suitors expose a world of supernatural creatures—ancient enemies bound by war: vampires and warlocks. 

Set in 1811 England, Ruby finally attends her first London Season at the age of eighteen. After departing from her safe, secluded childhood in the country, she quickly discovers that taking her rightful place among the aristocracy is the least of her worries after she becomes the target of a vindictive vampire. Determined to learn the truth about her family bloodlines, this clever debutante must navigate her pursuit while two gentlemen—one, her loyal best friend; the other, a mysteriously handsome stranger—grow increasingly tied to her future. From the dark alleys of Covent Garden to the lavish balls of the high society ton, clandestine agendas leave Ruby's heart exposed to a dangerous new world of mystery, magic, and love. 

Ruby is the first novel in the Tree of Blood series that takes root in exposing the origins of supernatural bloodlines. 

Ruby unites the seductive and sinister actions of the supernatural with the allure and elegance of a Regency romance.

    REVIEW

    Ruby is a historical romance, the first of a three book installment. Set in the early 1800's. 

    Lady Ruby Waterfield was born and raised in the country, On her eighteenth birthday, she is asked to move to London with her Grandfather to find herself a gentleman to marry. She was very hesitant to do so, knowing that her mother would be alone. Upon her arrival in London, Ruby witnesses what life outside of her little world is really like. During her time in London, Lady Ruby happens across three potential suitors. Fredrick is a lifelong childhood friend and someone who she loves and feels comfortable with.She knows that he loves her and there are feelings, but she is unsure if he is the one. Then we have Nathan. He is her grandfather's business partner and the man he hopes Ruby will marry. She feels unsure of him but, she can't help to be drawn to him.Then finally, we have Druvirro. She loathes him, yet is again drawn to him as well.

    Ruby knows that she must choose a gentleman to marry. She is eighteen and this is what the women do. Rudy gets caught up in a world of fantasy and paranormal. Sometimes you may think that she is naive, but then realize that she is still so young. You will find many ups and down, and twists and turns throughout the book. 

    I have to admit that it was a bit slow at the beginning, so be patient and give it time. Once you really get into the story, it definitely gets interesting! Happy Reading!!



    Excerpt

    Ruby studied the man’s attire. His black coat was soaked. He must have been caught in the wind and rain, she noted. The clothing was basic, nothing impressive. He is impressive, though, she thought. His disheveled appearance could not hide his attractive qualities. And at first sight she could have sworn she’d come upon a character from one of her books—the gallant prince turned pirate. Perhaps it was his tall, strong form and unshaven face that gave him such a roguish appearance. It also wasn’t hard to look into his blue eyes, which peered out from beneath his lengthy wet mop of black hair.

    His deep voice interrupted her thoughts. “Do you usually keep your visitors waiting?”

    “Not the visitors I have been expecting,” she remarked with a smile.

    “It seems that you’ve tortured me long enough,” he said with a wink.

    “I think the rain has done more than I,” she mocked, motioning toward his apparel.

    He remembered his appearance and ran a hand through his damp hair. He felt nervous and didn’t understand why. “Please excuse my appearance,” he apologized.
