Pursued: A Vampire Blood Courtesans Romance by Lisa Carlisle

It was only meant to be three nights…

After watching my mother die, becoming a Blood Courtesan is key to my future in medicine. With loans racking up, all I have to do is pretend I want the money for tuition, and I’m hired. No one can know the real reason for wanting this job.

But it isn’t as easy as it first seems. On my first night as a courtesan at a ball in Salem, I meet vampires for the first time—and flee.

Vampires are not easily dissuaded. And one in particular, Renato, offers me a proposal I find difficult to resist. He has a dark, smoldering appeal that lures me in. Plus, I might gain the insight I seek.

I’m supposed to provide a service and will be paid well for it. But my feelings complicate our arrangement—and endanger my life.

It was only meant to be three nights, but can I walk away now?

Welcome to the shadow world of Blood Courtesans…where vampires are real and blood is a commodity.

It’s not supposed to be about love…until it is.

Targeted Audience: adult

Her idea of a perfect day is one spent in front of a computer with a hot cup of coffee, her fingers flying over the keys to send her characters off on their latest adventure.

Brenda loves connecting with readers. To contact Brenda or for more information on her books, including excerpts, free reads, and more, go to: www.brenda-sparks.com

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired to write Alpha Lover after researching Russia to deepen my understanding of Nicholai’s character. When I introduced him in the first book of the series, his kind ways and romantic nature captured me. I couldn't wait to give him his own story and get to know him better, but I knew it would be set in the country where he is from, Russia, and that was a problem. At the time, I knew very little about the county.
My research showed me amazing castles with gilded moldings and golden statues. I also discovered a rich landscape full of exotic wildlife and snowy weather that provided a perfect setting for a romantic sleigh ride.
Alpha Lover, like all my stories, can be read as a stand-alone novel. I purposely wrote it that way so everyone would have a chance to get to know and love Nicholai as much as I do, regardless of whether you've read the other books in the series.

Extended Synopsis
Mia would never let anyone choose to die for her. After learning of Eva’s decision to do just that, Mia vowed that when the time came, she would ensure that Eva was the one to survive. Knowing the only one who Eva could have sought this favor from is the archangel Michael, Mia calls to him and makes arrangements to be the one who pays for the gift of her time with Andrew and her family. The battle with William and his men to reclaim one of their own led to Mia’s death at Sanctuary. As Andrew tackles a world without his other half and struggles to pick up the pieces of his children’s mournful hearts in facing a world without their mother, Mia is thrust into an existence which no longer affords her the protections of Sanctuary and her powers.

Knowing Mia’s heart would ache from the loss of her soul mate and family, Michael shrouds her new existence in a history haunted by memories of losing her husband in a violent home invasion. In doing so, he isolates her heart and opens the door to Mia’s most deadly challenge to date. Stripped of the ability to awaken her powers or recall her past, she is unaware that she has fallen into the hands of her most feared enemy, Jonathan. Armed with new skills and a secret which he will use to deceive Mia into making a commitment that seals her fate for all eternity, Jonathan is determined to claim his prize. This time the dark side may just get the soul it is hungry to consume, but only if it claims Mia before a mistaken belief leads to the end of her life at the hands of one who will extinguish his own in the process.

Author Bio:
Living on the east coast, I love to travel to Maine. Just far enough away to enjoy time with my wonderful family without the weight of work or competing schedules, but close enough that most of the short time to escape is not taken by travel. The beautiful scenery and abundance of woods and rocky beaches offers peace and tranquility to me and my family. I am the mother of three wonderful children and work in a law firm. Writing is something I never thought I could do, my vast work experience is more in accounting and legal work dealing with figures and asset allocation, but writing became a way to allow my mind to escape for short periods of time while my body stayed anchored to care for two dying parents and ensuring that I could still provide a warm and loving home to my children who agreed to be uprooted to help me care for their grandparents.
Writing for me was born out of the necessity for some peace and relief during a draining and guilt ridden time in my life. My three wonderful children and husband underwent the difficult ordeal of uprooting our lives to care for my parents who were each dying of cancer.
Drastically altering our lives to ensure that the wonderful people who cared for me during childhood and were giving and loving grandparents to their only grandchildren had their family living with them and caring for their daily needs during the three years of their waning lives when cancer ensured they could not take care of themselves, was both rewarding and heart wrenching. The guilt of drastically changing the lives of my children and impairing their freedom led to many a sleepless night and the birth of this series.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I am a nameless, faceless, insignificant cog in a wheel hoping to help someone whose name I do not know, face I have not seen, whose suffering I have not endured, experience light from the touch of a stranger’s friendly efforts to offer a ray of hope that brings a little assistance to their struggling life. Our family has known love, but we have also experienced pain and the need to sacrifice, but nothing like those we hope this will help. Please help us with our effort.
We have all seen the faces of children battling cancer, children starving at home or abroad, soldiers who have come home embattled for their bravery with scars that have secured our freedom, but for which we can never fully comprehend the depths of that cost. We have passed by and sometimes stopped to provide a hopeful word, some money, or a blanket to someone on the streets suffering economic hardship. All of those faces behind names we do not know are individuals who too may feel like cogs in wheels of a machine that need help to flourish and keep moving forward to something that works better than what we have now.
Not having the riches to feed the world or house the homeless, or the comprehension to discover a cure for diseases which ravage the body of those it inhabits and the souls of families who struggle each day alongside them, we are hoping to help in some small way, to make a difference by giving something to get something. In our time of need, we felt the rays of random acts of kindness by medical personnel or home care agents who aided us in our battles. We are hoping to pay the act forward with an act of our own. Yes we have given money, but our ability is not enough to meet the needs of the many, so we are hoping that ours with the little gifts of others can make a difference and touch the lives of people in need. To that end we have composed a series of books, hoping to offer a chuckle, a sigh, a moment of entertainment in exchange for the reader providing a donation to their local hospital that cares for children suffering from cancer, buying an extra can of food while at a grocery store and putting it in a bin designated for food pantries or homeless shelters, sending a donation to a charity assisting our returning soldiers who are injured, or helping us help a local school. The second installment of the book is available free in an electronic library, but is also offered for purchase so that the author can donate from the net proceeds to a local school in hopes that they will use it to provide the future generation with an education that they could not otherwise obtain. Happily we have made our first donation to a very grateful school and will be making another in May.
Help us with this effort. Download the book and donate, pass it on to a friend, every bit counts, or if you are a voice that reaches beyond the few, out to the social network, a voice that when you speak, people listen, tweet this out, post it on your social network page. Take a moment out of your life to assist this cog, who is not knowledgeable in ways of the internet, get the word out and help pay it forward and make the life of someone else more fulfilling, someone whose voice may not be lost in the herds of the masses but may boom and be heard well into the future. If you are willing to help, the book series is Secrets of Sanctuary Hospital with the following subheadings: A Hidden Enclave For Angels, Demons, And Vampires; A Journey Through Hell; Nightmare of The Dark Shadows; Mia’s Dark Encounter, and Final Confrontation (the last is a proposed title). Five books in all, four are already on the net with Smashwords , their affiliates-Itunes, Barnes & Noble and more, and the second book only so far is on Amazon. The other two are coming out as soon as my family and I are through editing them. It is a family affair and my children go to school and I work to earn a living and provide for them, but please, help us if you can bring light to those whose lives face more challenges or difficulties than our own or your own. Help us do a good thing for someone else. I hope this message finds you and yours healthy and fulfilled.
If you have a comment, please feel free to email at SanctuaryBook@outlook.com
Thank you.

The Vampire’s Pet (The Complete Series) by V.R. Cumming

Book Description
Eric Logan is twenty-one, a physics major at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, and a geek. All he wants is to make it through college in one piece. If he can find a woman to share his life with, well, all the better, but he doesn’t hold out much hope of that happening. He’s learned the hard way that women find shy, safe men too boring to keep around for long.

While attending a party with his friend Devin, Eric meets the vampire Elizabet, who offers him a spot in her stable of blood slaves. Not long after, the lovely Gianna Brady walks into his life. With her in his heart and a job as a vampire’s pet, Eric finally has the life and love he’s always wanted and is eager to begin his journey through the hidden society he’s now a part of, a society where blood and sex are used to cement alliances and control the violent nature of the beast within.

The world of the Vampyr isn’t as easy to navigate as it appears, however, and Eric is soon lost in a whirlwind of obstacles and complications. Devin isn’t content with the friendship Eric craves; Marco, Elizabet’s favorite, has plans for his mistress’ newest pet that Eric isn’t keen on fulfilling; and the vampire queen needs a strong ally. As he struggles to find his place in this new world, Eric is pushed to the limits of his humanity and wonders if he’ll ever find his way back to it again, or if the monster he’s becoming will consume him and everyone he loves in its thirst for power and blood.

Christmas Bizarre by Lizz Lund

Christmas-Bizarre-free-recipesWhat do Santa’s Sidekick, a dead lawyer and a geriatric vampire have in common? Meet Mina Kitchen – a forty-something single who finds trouble quicker than she can whip up a batch of breakfast breads. Plural. Her catering disorder runs neck-and-neck with her weird luck, and her cat’s weirder tendency toward gnawing elf gear. Okay, and getting kidnapped a couple of times in one week is a little strange, too.

Her next door neighbor Vito’s past as ex-leader of the Moils, the Jewish-Polish Family from Bumville, New Jersey, comes to light and throws a dollop of dilemmas into an already simmering plot.

Top it all off with a counterfeiting ring, a county-wide dearth of holiday wrapping tape, and a mass of pets running loose at the local mall, and what do you have? A recipe for disaster that Mina whips to a froth.

Christmas Bizarre will keep you smiling when you’re not shouting up a belly laugh. Set in Lancaster, “Pee-Ay” you’ll discover a lively cast of characters, funny dialogue and lots of twists and turns. Hang on tight – you’re in for a slalom of a holiday ride.

Christmas Bizarre is packed with delightful surprises – along with a bonus of free recipes, vetted by Lund’s chef husband, for your own culinary creation and consumption.

**Recipes included!**

Targeted Audience: 30+

Author Bio:
Lizz Lund loves Lancaster. Since 1999, she’s been having a terrific time here and thinks everyone else should, too. Christmas Bizarre is the sequel to her debut novel, Kitchen Addiction! Lizz grew up in New Jersey and imported her chef husband from their old stomping grounds – he still hasn’t recovered. She holds a BA in Musical Theatre from Syracuse University, but has never learned to waitress.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
From NJ. Unemployed. Transplanted to Pee-Ay. Everyone’s so nice here – it’s weird. I had a lot of time on my hands, and not too many friends at the time, so I made some up. The oddest one being a geriatric vampire who wears dentures.
