Blood Bath & Beyond – ARC contest!

Blood Bath & BeyondThank you to everyone who commented! My randomly selected winners are Shanna L. and Emily and they’ve been contacted by email to claim their prizes. I also have three signed ARCs up on Goodreads right now if you want to enter to win — that draw closes at the end of the month. Thanks again!

My first review for BLOOD BATH & BEYOND (An Immortality Bites Mystery #1) has come in — and it’s a great one! RT BookReviews has given it Top Pick status, which makes me very happy! It’s my first Top Pick and I love that it’s for this book in particular. BB&B was a labor of love for me. It’s a book that wasn’t originally on my radar to write, but it had to be written. Sarah insisted! Now she returns August 7th in new genre that, I think, fits her perfectly. And I loved writing every page of this book.

Here’s what RT has to say…

4-1/2 star TOP PICK – Sarah Dearly and her vampire fiancé are back and in a new genre! Rowen jumps from paranormal romance to paranormal mystery without skipping a beat. In the beginning of the book, Rowen removes all of Sarah’s friends. You won’t miss them; Sarah is so lovable that you won’t notice. A child vamp and her caretaker also add a very fun layer to an already strong story. Here’s hoping Sarah will have many more adventures in her new series.

Sarah has had issues being engaged to a centuries-old master vampire before, but never anything like this. Thierry has agreed to take a job with the Ring, a secret council that keeps vampires in line. This job requires a commitment of 50 years of travel and danger. Sarah goes along on his first job, which is in Vegas. That sounds a lot more fun than it turns out to be, when Thierry’s life is threatened and he is framed for murder. Sarah must clear his name before the love of her life is staked and their chance of an immortal life together vanishes. (OBSIDIAN, Aug., 336 pp., $7.99)

I want to give away two signed ARCs (advance reading copies) of BB&B to a couple of randomly selected commenters. So please leave a comment! (if you’re reading this on a mirrored site, please visit the original post.) This contest is open internationally and will close on Sunday, June 24th at 9:00pm EST. Winners will be contacted via email. Good luck!

    Thank you for the giveaway! I’m a big vamp fan, but you had me at the title. Anytime I see or hear anything that has to do with the store name Bed, Bath, & Beyond reminds me of the Family Guy episode where Peter was warned about the “& Beyond section,” which totally makes me crack up.

    Yay!!! Sarah + Thierry are on a new adventure. Is the
    Deliciously manipulative Ex still gonna be dropping in
    To stir the pot?
    Love that I’m gonna meet new characters and Sarah will
    be making new friends.
    Thanks to Sarah for insisting and to you for indulging her.

    Cheers Mar

      LOL! If I get the chance to write more than two books in this series, I think we might see Veronique again in book three… she is a delight to write. ;)
