Danny Erickson knew things were bad when he got called to the dean's office at his university. He just didn't expect to see his estranged father when he arrived or the proposal his father offers him. Little does Danny know that by signing his name on the dotted line, he's agreed to become the personal blood donor to a vampire prince and there is not breaking this blood contract.
Prince Dominic Xavier Lucian Ruelle is dying. He needs a blood donor with pure blood. When Danny is brought to him, Dominic finds himself dealing with feelings he has never experienced before. Falling in love with his blood donor was never part of the contract.
When Danny's life is threatened, Dominic will do anything to save him, even break every rule of his kind. He's even willing to give up his life to save the man he loves. But will it be enough and will it be in time? More importantly, will Danny accept a vampire prince as his mate?

BLOOD CONTRACT is the 8th book in the Wolf Creek Pack series. While there was not a lot of connection to the "pack", it is set in the same world and there are a couple of scenes with two previous characters. This book takes us back inside the secretive vampire covens with all of their rules and etiquette just waiting for someone to break them all.
Danny is estranged from his family, kicked out for being gay. He has worked two jobs to put himself through college and just survive. When his father comes to him saying that his twin is ill and needs a blood transfusion, Danny is suspicious but willing to help his twin in any way he can. When his father offers him money, Danny refuses and says all he wants is for his father to leave him alone and never contact him again. His father agrees and Danny signs what he believes is a contract stating this fact. Danny soon realizes how very wrong he is.
Dominic is a very old vampire and without a donor of pure blood he doesn't have long to live. Dominic discovers all kinds of new feelings now that Danny is his blood donor. But he is a bit slow on the uptake where they are concerned, and almost allows outside influences to ruin everything before it really gets a chance to start.
While I enjoyed reading about this couple, the overall story line seemed weak. We never learn what, if anything, Dominic does to Danny's father for his betrayal of Danny and that bothered me. There seemed to me to be a lot of flip-flopping especially in Sully's view towards Danny that I didn't get. I also felt cheated in that we don't really get WHY Dominic falls for Danny. One day he is treating him like cattle, the next day Danny is sick and Dominic is in love with him. I did however find Sully to be an interesting secondary character and would like to see him have to deal with having a human or shifter mate.
BLOOD CONTRACT is not Stormy Glenn's strongest outing but if you like the series I think it's worth the time.
