Update: Thank you all for the wonderful comments!! I had a great time chatting with you! The winners were randomly selected, and those winners are…
10 WINNERS OF BOUND BY THE NIGHT–Tony, Tina Rugg, Tracey Q, Petula, Dina, Samantha Atkin, Mel K, Brenda B, Crystal GB, and Willa
The winner of the ANGEL BETRAYED early copy is — Mary McKee
In my new release, BOUND BY THE NIGHT, my heroine has been “dead to the world” for the last fifteen years. She’s a vampire, and a powerful curse kept her frozen in a rather unfortunate state that made her appear dead. Time rolled right by my heroine. She missed the huge develops that the Digital Age has brought to us.
Fifteen years. On the surface, that doesn’t really seem like a great deal of time. Not when compared to say, one hundred years. But think about your life fifteen years ago. Compare it to life today. No iPhones. No e-readers. No Skyping with friends who live far away. Heck, no Facebook. Yes, I said no Facebook!
Ah, life was sure different fifteen years ago. Since my heroine is a gadget girl, I think she’d love exploring all of the new gadgets that are out there (and it seems like new gadgets are developing every day). But tell me…of all the great developments that we’ve had in the last fifteen years, what do you love the most? What invention or system or what-have-you makes your life better?
I’ll give away ten copies of BOUND BY THE NIGHT to random commenters (these can be copies for the Kindle or Nook). I also will give away an early copy of ANGEL BETRAYED (due out on 6/26/12 from Kensington Brava). The contest will run until midnight, and I’ll be back early on 5/3/12 to announce the winners. Thanks!
(And as for the invention that I wouldn’t want to live without…put me down for the iPhone. I even gave up my home line b/c I always have the iPhone with me. Built-in GPS, a phone that talks to me and answers all my questions, a camera, a gadget with “Face Time”–come on, this baby is magic!)
For the last fifteen years, vampire queen Iona has been dead to the world. Trapped under the power of a brutal curse, she has been helpless. A prisoner, locked within her own still body. Then alpha werewolf Jamie O’Connell fights his way to her side. After defeating the guards that surround her, Jamie gives Iona his blood…and she rises.
The world has changed a great deal in the last fifteen years, and Iona has changed, too. Once known as the Blood Queen because of her dark reputation, she now finds herself longing for the blood of only one man…only he isn’t just a man. She wants the blood of her werewolf—Jamie’s blood. But Iona doesn’t realize that Jamie has been keeping secrets from her. Very dark, dangerous secrets. And Iona may have traded one curse for another.
Now that he has Iona, Jamie vows to never let her go. He needs his Blood Queen in order to defeat his enemy, he needs her to make his own beast stronger, and…he just needs her. Jamie has risked his life to claim Iona, and he won’t let anything break their bond. Not time. Not spells. Not even a wild and reckless vampire queen…
