Bloodborne’s ruler hides a dangerous secret.
The Blurb: Salem Summers is a rare vampire. The ruler of Nitehelm’s blood-sucking kingdom possesses a gift—one that could well put a price on his head.
As a Blue Blood, Salem is gifted with the ability to conceive. A rare trait in Boodborne’s cursed, infertile society.
Men like Salem are hunted by ruthless, mercenary predators who will exploit his fertility for their own nefarious purposes.
Salem must conceal his gift while he searches for his mates, but the clock is ticking. If he fails to conceive an heir by the next blood moon, Bloodborne faces certain extinction and will crumble beneath the sands of time.
To save his kingdom, Salem undertakes an ancient ceremony to summon his mates.
Three answer his call:
Thoren—a werewolf whose first touch soothes Salem’s battered heart.
Ulrich—a dragon shifter with a kiss that unravels Salem’s defenses.
Cecil—a Sorcerean prince who casts a sultry spell over Salem’s very soul.
For centuries, Salem has dreamed of his mates. The three men are so much more than he dared hope. Their days together, and their nights too, draws Salem closer to the child he so desperately yearns for. The bond between them is forged in iron. The physical connection burns hotter than molten steel.
But enemies lurk in the shadows. Hunters prowl the kingdom. Without an heir, he’ll lose not just his kingdom, but the three fierce and protective men he’s grown to love.
BLUE BLOOD is the first novel in Xya Olsen’s Siring an Heir quartet. Each book follows a different cast of characters from the Nitehelm universe and can be read in any order. This story is filled with love, magic, action, steamy m/m(+) scenes, and features harem and mpreg. (Suitable for ages 18+)
MMy Thoughts and Review:
Welcome to 2020 and to a new realm filled with magic, mystery, and mayhem. A new writer is in our midst who has exemplary skills in the imagination department and is not afraid to use them.
Does Your Blood Run Harem Blue?

In their first release, which also boasts to be the first in a series, Xya Olsen opens a door to another realm where the vampires are dying because of a fertility curse out on them by socerea. The vampire King, Salem is running out of time to perform a ritual to summon his fated fates, become pregnant with an heir, and pray what happened to his fathers does not happen to he and his future family.
The story is action packed with decent characters who just need a bit more fleshing out. I found myself confusing Theron and Ulrich from time to time because they didn’t seem distinct enough. Other times though, they were spot on.
I found bits of the world confusing too. The only place I could picture well was “The Wilds.”
This book is in need of a little TLC, meaning a good beta or two, and a good proofing team, but with this being the author’s first, all of that will come with time. Once it does, this will be a 5🌟 read for sure.
The world in this book is original and imaginative. There is a buffet of goodness here that just needs a little salt to enhance the flavor. I will keep my eyes on this new author.
Until then, I am giving it a solid 3🌟🌟🌟
I also plan to check out book #2! I loved book #1’s originality that much.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.💖
