Hot & Deadly Blog Hop

  • Elizabeth Kotkiewicz Hyatt - $10 Amazon Gift Card
  • Latesha DePoreree - Autographed copy of SHADOW ON THE MOON
  • Book Lady - Autographed copy of SHADOW ON THE MOON
 Congratulations everyone!

If you haven't received my email notifying you that you won,
 please contact me immediately through my website
I need information from you before I can deliver the giveaway.

Welcome to my paranormal and suspense blog post celebrating the hottest and most deadly stories in the fiction world. What favorite story of yours makes your hair stand up and your heart beat like a tom-tom? Is it one you wrote yourself? Or does something like Red Dragon and The Silence of the Lambs bring goosebumps to your skin and suck the air from your lungs? How about Edgar Allen Poe and the Tell-tale Heart. Or are you more of a DaVinci Code kind of thrill seeker?

Why do we love being scared? Why do we read about stuff we wouldn't want to actually happen in our own life? These questions have been studied for centuries and the only answer that seems to come up is we like them.

I know I do, even if I tend to be partial to my own heroes. Morgan Wilder, for instance, was a sedate psychiatrist who encountered a paranormal world quite accidentally. Now he's part of it and yearns to escape. Morgan is a big man, tall, buff, and strong. And when he expresses the talents of his secret life he's as deadly as a sabre tooth tiger. I've given him just the heroine to redeem his soul.and they come together in SHADOW ON THE MOON, the book I've donated for Hot & Deadly.

Okay, I know you didn't drop in just for the conversation. You want the goodies, of course you do.

These are the giveaways:
$10 Amazon gift card.
Free copy of Shadow on the Moon, your choice of print or ebook version (one caveat--the print version option is available only to U.S. residents).

The grand prize, brought to you by Bella Media Management, an awesome cover and book design company, is an Amazon or Barnes and Noble gift card of $53.50

  2. I love the Black Dagger Brotherhood, but, trying to be really objective, my true favorite hot and deadly heroes are the Archangels in my own Archangels Creed series. They end up having to fight for love they didn't want in order to save mankind.

  3. Magic and Kenra, The Blackdagger Brotherhood sounds fascinating. I'm going to have to give it a look. And, Kenra, I love the premise behind your Archangels Creed series. Be sure to click on the rafflecopter box so it has a record of your visit. Good luck in the drawing.

  4. Diana Rowland and Larissa Ione's series are both great. Favorite deadly hero, Curran from the Kate Daniels series by Ilona Andrews.

  5. I love Suzanne Brockman's Troubleshooter series. All of her heroes are hot and deadly.


  6. I have tons of favorites, some have already been mentioned.
    I love how these type of stories grab you by the hair and they just don't let ya go! You're thrown into this 'other world' and sometimes it makes ya (me) wish you could crawl inside and stay for awhile. :)
    Thank you for the chance......

  7. All good choices Anne, Sebella, and Sebrina. I've always particularly been a fan of Suzanne Brockman and think Sebrina's comment about these kind of books grabbing you by the hair and dragging you through and then you wanting to crawl inside and stay awhile :-) is sooo true.
