#Vampires For Valentines Day

Welcome to my stop on the Vampires For Valentines Day Giveaway Hop! Thanks to the hop's hosts Felicity Heaton, Caris Roane, and H.D. Thomson. As you can tell by my blog and my book covers, I love vampires. For me, there's no other character that embodies sensuality and power as much as the vampire.

When I began writing my own version of the vampire series, I knew from the very beginning I wanted to do something that hadn't been done before.

From that desire came the Sons of Navarus series. My vampires don't fight against humans anymore since the peace between the two races in the early 20th century. No, my vampires are fighting against one another and other paranormal beings.

Here's the series blurb:

Eight vampire warriors descended from the gods and chosen to defend their world against the Archon takeover, each dedicated to the war they must win. But there's another side to these Sons of Navarus—one that only the women they love know. Behind the strength they need to defeat their enemies lies a passion different in each one of the Sons. Their war will take them around the world and even involve the gods themselves, but they must unlock the secrets of the Prophecy of Idolas to defeat the Archons or perish in trying for none of their kind can be safe if the Archons win this battle.

Let me introduce you to the Sons.

There's Vasilije, whose story is Blood Avenged. Vasilije is pure Alpha male, sensual and powerful. Turned in the 1600s, Vasilije was the son of a Romanian prince and is royalty himself. 









And Saint, whose story is Blood Betrayed. Saint is a darker vampire and very much the brooding type. Turned on the battlefield in the First World War, Saint's real name is Declan, but the vampire world calls him Saint because he only sleeps with human females.

Then there's Terek, whose story is Blood Spirit. Seductive and spiritual, he's nearly a god in the vampire world because of the thousands of vampires he's sired, mostly female. A monk in his human life, he was made vampire by a Muslim trader in the mid-1300s just after losing his wife and child.
And Ramiel, who is the biggest Son but the most violent. His book is Blood Prophecy. He's a bad boy down to his bones. He's one of the two Sons responsible for deciphering the Prophecy of Idolas. Turned in the 400s, he was a Visigoth barbarian and Roman slave before being turned vampire.




Then there's Thane, the gentle giant of the group. He's the other Son responsible for the Prophecy. Turned in Tudor England in the 1500s, he's the son of an English nobleman and a true knight-in-shining armor.


And Sion, the smartest of the Sons, is all brain but for the right woman, there's a heart inside him too. Turned during the Second World War, Sion is a mystery to most who meet him, but his life before becoming vampire was very violent and very much not like the icy cold male he appears to be today.


And Dante, who is the youngest of the Sons and a clyten, a type of vampire who can walk in the son. Made vampire in the 1980s, he's the only American in the group and cocky as all hell.



Finally, there's Nico, the oldest of the Sons of Navarus who was turned in ancient Greece and looks like a Greek god.






The first three books in the Sons of Navarus series are currently available and Blood Prophecy is set for release this spring (click on the title for more information on the books in the series) So in celebration of having all these incredibly hot vampires to spend my time with, I'm giving away a signed paperback copy of Blood Avenged, along with the choice of one of the specially made bookthongs for the first four books (Blood Avenged through Blood Prophecy-see below) to one lucky winner.


To enter, leave a comment below with your email address and do as many of the Rafflecopter entries as you like (the more you do, the better your chances of winning). Look for the newsletter signup and the Pinterest follow button in the left sidebar. The contest is open internationally. Be sure to hop around to all the other blogs too! Happy Valentine's Day!

I like vampires because I am one? :) Okay, truthfully, I love vampires because they are sensual, dark, wild, unpredictable creatures of the night. :) LadyVampire2u AT gmail DOT com

Pam said...

I have loved vampires ever since I was a little girl. I was never afraid of them and always saw them as loving. When I got older, I saw them as sensual, sexy, and alpha males!! Your books are wonderful and I look forward to the next one in this series!!

I love vampires because they are sexy,calm in dangerous situations, strong, and they are so good at being bad.

kaya said...

Power and immortality are two attractive properties that make me a fan of vampires. I also like to read about them (as about paranormal creatures in general) cause humans are a little bit boring... don't you think?

Annie Slasher said...

I like the mysteriousness. =) I always think how intriguing it would be to live for 100's or 1000's of years. What effect on the psych it would have. So many social changes take place. Very interesting.

I really don't know why. In the past, I probably wouldn't have even picked up a vampire book at the library or bookstore. Since I have been on Goodreads and blogging, it seems like I go through phases where I read one right after another. Then, I'll take a little break and look for some murder. LOL Most of the time the books are so well written, I don't really notice it. Thanks for the giveaway.

Now this is a Blog Hop I can really sink my teeth into! I LOVE Vampire’s and when you mix them in with Romance Novels the result is intoxicating! Who doesn’t love Vampires! They are usually handsome, sometimes dark and brooding, have sexy names like Sebastian - Damien - Alexander, and they have been alone so long and searching for their Bride, so they can have that one perfect woman to love! Some of my absolute favorite Vampires are :

Lothaire Daciano from the book Lothaire. Lothaire is sexy, wicked, confidant, and has been waiting for his Bride for Eons.

Ian MacPhie from the book All I Want For Christmas Is A Vampire. Ian is a Highland warrior and a Vampire. Sexy with an accent and a kilt.

Sebastien Newcombe from the book Phantom Shadows. Bastien is a misunderstood and sexy badass. He just loves to push everyone’s buttons.

Javier from the book Covet. Javier desires her above all others.

See what I mean….I LOVE VAMPIRES!

Toni Porter said...

Vampires are, perhaps, a bit more cultured in your typical tales. And I like them because they've lived through history, and just think of the stories they'd have to tell. And they're sexy in that sensual, dangerous, brooding sort of way.

One of the things I love most about vampires is their confidence and intelligence. Being immortal, they live for years and get to experience so many things in our culture, as time goes by. To me this adds a mystery to them that I find very sexy.

I have loved Vampires since I was a teenager. Vampires are always sexy, good looking and loving. Also they can offer Immortality and that is one thing that draws me in. Also they love so unconditionally. When they fall in love, they love forever. And really I just love everything about Vampires. Thank you for a chance to win and for being a part of this fun and awesome blog hop!!
