The Blue Bloods have powers beyond human comprehension: strength that defies logic, speed that cannot be captured on film, the ability to shape-shift, and more. But in matters of the heart, no one, not even those immortal vampires, has total control. In Bloody Valentine, part of the best-selling Blue Bloods series, author Melissa de la Cruz offers three tantalizing stories that delve deep into the love lives of the all-powerful vamps (and their Red Blood friends) from New York's Upper East Side. Might a witchy new girl help cure Oliver's broken heart? How did Allegra fall in love with a human? Will Schuyler and Jack finally be bonded?

Romantic and sensual, Bloody Valentine reveals the undying love, the hope and devastation, and the lust and longing that have defined the Blue Bloods throughout history. Prepare to be swept off your feet.
I read Bloody Valentine after Blue Bloods and that was a big error on my part because there were countless spoilers and I was just starting to read the series.
So this novella is a compilation of three short stories that intends to fill out some of the holes that was left out in the novels.

The first one is about Oliver Hazard-Perry post Schuyler. We see him very heartbroken and at the brink of a very dark road. Then he met this witch named Freya who, with a little bit of magic, helped him bounce back from that situation. Incidentally, Freya is one of de la Cruz's characters in her adult series, Witches of East End, so I think I will grab that book later.

Next one is Allegra Van Alen and Bendix Chase, Chuyler's father, love story and how it all started in Endicott. We get to see Allegra and her twin Charles before Blue Bloods. Allegra is like Schuyler in the sense that when she found the man she's supposed to be with

And last but not the least is Schuyler Van Alen and Jack Force's bonding. But before all that there were some major trouble that ensued that almost put a dampen to their impending "nuptials". Venators abducted Oliver and tricked Schuyler into having Jack wear this ring which is like an amulet that would prevent him from unleashing Abaddon. They however under estimated the lovers and soon enough Drusilla's plans were foiled and Jack and Schuyler's union pushed through in front of people that support their relationship. Sadly this is also the prelude to them parting ways because each has their own journey and mission to complete.
