Feature and Giveaway: Tempted By Blood by Laurie London

Deep within the forests of the Pacific Northwest, the battle for supremacy rages on between two Vampire coalitions:

Guardian enforcers sworn to protect humanity, and Darkbloods, rogues who kill like their ancient ancestors….

He might be known for his effortless charm, but Guardian Jackson Foss is hiding a terrible secret. For months, he has battled the emergence of his dark nature—deadly urges that threaten to consume him. And those cravings only intensify when he meets Arianna Wells, the human he's been assigned to protect. Smart and perceptive, Arianna doesn't seem like a dangerous temptress. Yet she awakens in Jackson an unstoppable need that, if left unchecked, will brand him a traitor…a crime punishable by death.

But soon their bond may be Arianna's only hope. For stalking her in the shadows is a merciless enemy—one who will stop at nothing to claim her completely….

  1. I love the face that anything can happen and usually does, that there are more than humans in the stories with paranormal powers we don't think really exist but hope they do.Thanks for the giveaway. This book and series sound awesome.


  2. I love the super powers part... What a nice fantasty!

    Your books sound amazing!

  3. What I love about paranormal romance is the of course romance and the supernaturalness of the whole story. It goes above and beyond what we live in our every day lives, so it's exciting and new. Love Laurie's stories!!!

  4. Thanks for a fantastic giveaway!

    I love PNR b/c it seems like the romance is always more intense, and the stakes and the danger higher. I also love the creation of new worlds and the twists on magic and legends/myths.

  5. I like the different worlds that you get to visit in paranormals.

  6. When a love is forbidden, unconventional, or they have to fight for it, It make it that much more real. You can feel the love even more when they are willing to go through whatever they have to to be together :)

  7. I love how paranormal romance crosses boundaries. They go to a place that isn't real, so it's not like something you would see everyday.

  8. I love how anything that the author imagines is possible in paranormal romance! There are no boundaries - the world is as wide open as he/she wants to make it, and that just amazes and enraptures me! I love it!!

    Thank you so much for the giveaway chance!

  9. I love how the author is able to bring in the supernatural and make it believable. I also love how the romance plays out, sometime PNR aspect is the reason it is difficult to be together.

  10. What I like about paranormals are the fascinating characters, the incredible world building and plots that hold your attention until the end.

  11. I love that there are no boundries and all the alpha males!

  12. I like how so many more things are possible: the world and character building. It gives me a chance to experience a unreal (yet real) world and meet some unique characters.

  13. I love the variety and how anything is possible with the world and character building. Each author creates a unique story/series that is only limited by their imaginations. There are so many different characters to choose from (vampires, shifters, demons, etc) and even mix them up.

  14. I love the fantastic worlds, the unique and interesting characters and all the action and excitement that is generally a part of a great paranormal story.

  15. I love the endless possibilities to create the perfect story and the total devotion of the hero to his mate. I also love the alpha male type and when the hero is a vampire, I am totally hooked!


  16. I like reading about the author's imagination and creativity as well as the characters and stories.

  17. I love how there's no limit on what can happen. Sometimes you need some reckless fantasy in your life and this is my outlet :)

  18. I like the way it is so different from reality. Books are my escape and I don't want to read about things that can really happen. I like that the characters are myths come alive. I like the romance the best though.

    This series sounds pretty good!

    Thanks for the giveaway opportunity.

  19. I love that things that are impossible or improbable in reality can occur in a paranormal world and I love the sensual scenes that usually between kickass heroines and dark, mysterious men! :)

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  20. I love the element that none of it could happen in real life!
