Darcy Blackmore, head of the Blackmore vampire clan, is one bossy, arrogant, insufferable piece of work.
He’s also my only hope.

I have to stop my sister from marrying his brother. A loveless, arranged marriage would kill her, but she’s determined to go through with it to keep our family safe. Nightfall tradition demands a witch and vampire marriage—ASAP—or we’re out.

Darcy’s solution?
We pretend we’re a love match, trick our siblings into confessing they don’t want to tie the knot, and sort out how to save the town once the wedding bells are silenced—permanently.

It’s not a bad plan. In theory.
If only hate-banging Darcy weren’t my new favorite hobby. If only he’d kept his secretly kind heart under wraps and this fake love had stayed fake...

Bad Blood is a red hot, enemies-to-lovers Standalone romance. Formerly titled My Big Fat Bloodsucker Wedding. Same addictive read, new title and cover.

    I expected it to be a little cutesy, hokey, funny maybe a little Charming. What I got was funny, very well, written charming, fast paced and a nicely put together story. Thank you Bella, I have a new author to read.

    I love a good paranormal book. I love a good, honestly funny rom-com story. But I flat out adore when both those worlds meet, to give me a tale that makes me laugh and keeps me on the edge of my seat. Bella Jacobs gave me that with My Big Fat Bloodsucker. Blaire is this perfect combination of strong and sassy, with a soft center hidden beneath the bluster. She’s not afraid to go head to head with Darcy, the grumpy, very rigid vamp in town. After all, she’s a big, bad witch…even if she’s just discovered that fact! Who else can help her break up her twin and his brother from their ill-conceived engagement. It’s not like they’ll actually fall for each other while pretending to fall for each other…right? Darcy…perfect name right there…has seen a lot in his 200 or so years. But nothing prepares him for the sharp wit and sharper tongue of the oldest Wonderfully sister. While he still possesses a soul, he’s certain any and all feelings he once had died with him when he was turned. He just wants to stop this wedding, save their town and avoid Blaire, for eternity. The humor in this book is laugh out loud funny. The dialogue is fantastic, especially the inner monologues of the leads. I liked the juxtaposition between the comedy and the drama of a town full of paranormal creatures. Vampires and witches and shifts (oh my!) call Nightfall, NH home, but really, they’re just like any small town. Everyone knows everyone else, and their business. There’s some bad guys, er, whatevers. It’s just a bit more magical. I’m loving this series, and we’ve only been given book one. But I predict there’s a lot more coming from the citizens of this town…and it looks to be a blast.
  • Loved this supernatural romance!

    Bella Jacobs has definitely converted me into a lover of supernatural romance. For years I have mostly stayed away from these types of stories, but Ms. Jacobs has completely captured my attention with her characters and fantastically entertaining stories. And Blair and Darcy’s tale is just icing on the cake. The bantering between them was so much fun to read as they both express their dislike for the other while quickly developing a strong and undeniable connection. But Darcy’s past has made him guard his heart keeping it protected. Blair soon realizes that their kindred spirits belong together, but will Darcy ever recognize that what their hearts share is what they both deserve to have for eternity? I really enjoyed this story, and couldn’t put it down. Blair and Darcy are such a great couple and the support characters were fantastic as well. And with a little peak into what’s up next for the Wonderfully sisters, I’m excitedly looking forward to the next book in this series. Bravo Ms. Jacobs. Very well done indeed.

    Reading the blurb you might think you’ve read tropes similar to this where a fake romance turns into the real thing, but when you throw in Bella Jacob’s writing style and the paranormal aspect I guarantee you this will be the first book of its kind! I can’t remember a time I laughed so hard while enjoying a paranormal romance. I think my favorite part is the house kraken, Kitty. If you are in the mood for something a little bit more lighthearted with a paranormal twist and a sexy vampire romance then this book will definitely hit the spot.

    I am a bit picky when it comes to supernatural romances, but Bella Jacob did not disappoint in My Big Fat Bloodsucker Wedding. It was filled with humor, romance, spice, mystery, and kingship. Blair and her sister have just moved into Nightfall. Blair and her twin sister Annie are the newbies in town, the witches that the town has been waiting for and needing for quite some time. Annie is the quiet, sweet, delicate, librarian type whereas Bella is the rough, tough, "I don't need a man" type. Annie has decided she will be the one to sacrifice herself and marry Colin, one of the elders in town to help keep Nightfall safe and renew the shield that has been protecting the town's identity. Blair is not happy and she has decided she will do everything and anything to stop this union from happening, even if it means she has to pair up with Darcy, Colin's brother. Blair doesn't trust the blood-sucking brothers and prefers to do things on her own, but when she realizes that Blair is also on the same mission to stop his brother from marrying Annie, the duo decides it will be quicker and easier to work together. Although Blair and Darcy can't stand each other, they can't deny the CRAZY CHEMISTRY between them. The more time they spend together the harder it is to resist it. It's funny when enemies turn out to be something a little more. What's even better.... when Darcy and Blair realize that the joke is on them.... This was my first read by author Bella Jacobs and definitely not my last.

    Vampires, witches, and all sorts of zaniness...what do these have in common? They all figure prominently in MY BIG FAT BLOODSUCKER WEDDING by author Bella Jacobs. I love paranormal romance, and when there's a big helping of laughter, even better. Bella's done a bang-up job of making me fall in love with Nightfall, New Hampshire and the, er, folks that live there. Finding out that your mom was a witch, and that you and your sisters are also witches is a big deal, but also discovering that vampires are, indeed, a thing, and that you or one of your siblings is the key to saving the town that you've come to call home is kind of a lot. Topping things off is one heck of a surly, maddening, and also sexy vampire that may or may not be a part of the puzzle as well. Blaire, with her self-assured take no nonsense attitude, is the perfect foil for Darcy and his seemingly stuffy and high-handed ways. Every romance lover knows that these things are like kindling for the upcoming blaze, and Bella delivers with both heat and humor. The first in a series, MY BIG FAT BLOODSUCKER WEDDING is just the thing for readers that enjoy plenty of sass, surprises, and steam in their paranormal romances. It's an easy and fun read, and paves the way for more fun and such coming from Bella in MY BIG FAT BLOODSUCKER SECRET, hitting the shelves in the very near future. Thumbs up, fangs out, sparks flying fun to be had here, so dive in and enjoy. ❤️
