Feature and Giveaway: Awakened by Virna DePaul

Perfect for fans of J. R. Ward, Nalini Singh, and Lara Adrian, bestselling author Virna DePaul’s thrilling series of paranormal romances invites readers into a seductive and dangerous world where vampires secretly exist among the general population, while the FBI tries to keep the Rogues among them from preying on humans—for killing, for turning, for pleasure.

Ex-soldier Barrett Miles had no idea that vampires were real—until Belladonna recruits her to serve as a covert agent and infiltrate a murderous sex ring run by the most depraved of immortals, those who feed on the purity and blood of innocents. Their latest victim: a young girl whom Barrett promised to protect. She will be sold—unless Barrett can find her first. Forced to team up with her former lover, Nick Maltese, an undercover sniper, Barrett is caught between fulfilling her personal mission and shielding her heart from the man who betrayed her.

Nick’s hunting a new breed of vampires and harboring a terrible secret when Barrett finds him. Soon a seething underworld of strange desires threatens to engulf them all. Can he save the girl and reclaim Barrett’s heart? Nick knows he has only one chance to prove himself to her as the hunt begins—and their love forces them to embrace the darkest places in their souls.

  1. For a while I was tired of them because you'd see them everywhere!! But it turns out I was looking at the wrong places. I now read books that truly catch my attention and boy, I've meet some really fascinating ones and now I don't think I'll ever tire of them again =D

  2. I can live with or without vampires - I'm about over them, but still love a good book.

  3. When it comes to vampires I can take them or leave them. Thanks for having the giveaway.

  4. Depends on how they're written. Realistically, I can't imagine mating with the dead. But when they're written well....oh yeah. I'll go there.

  5. I still like vampires ;) I especially love how authors are "reinventing" the wheel so to speak so vampires are so different! Thanks for sharing!

  6. Love 'em! I'm glad the sparkly ones are done with because I like my vampires a little more gritty. Just saying!

  7. Love a thoroughly dark and erotic vampire story! One of my favorites is The Last Girl by Kitty Thomas ;)

  8. I love vampires, like Anne Rice vampires, but the others are getting a little annoying.
