Lovestruck Giveaway and Hop 2013

Giveaway Hop Hosted by Under the Covers, runs August 14 – August 20

Love-struck: (adjective) having a passionate or overwhelming feeling of love; smitten

We were tasked with discussing a book that left us breathless and wanting when it was over. I have to say there have been a few characters that have left me that way. I'll admit I tend to fall in love with each and every one of my heroes. I think it's because as a writer you get to know the men so deeply. Even if you aren't writing all of the sordid details of their lives you see it in your head.

Every time I start a new book that hero becomes my favorite. I just finished editing my first menage and I have to tell you, those two guys are awesome. BUT, seeing I can't give away a copy of that book yet we'll visit with my second favorite hero: Nick.

I know that 'Half in Love' is really supposed to be about Willie and her journey, but Nick stole the show for me when I was working on the book. He's a vampire who knows what he wants in life... and after meeting Willie she's what he wanted.

Here's a short snippet that proves to me why Willie had no chance at all when Nick decided he was taking her as a mate:

A slight huff escaped her lips before she clamped her eyes and lips shut. Her body relaxed against his body, and she offered her throat to him. Nick knew that he needed to let her go, but something deeply imbedded in his psyche pulled him to the cradle of her thighs. The submissive gestures only inflamed his need to take her and mark her as his. Her warmth and arousal called to the baser side of his vampire-self. He groaned from a deep, dark place inside and thrust his hips against hers in a slow, sensual grind, mimicking all the things he wanted to do to her. His cock rode against her softer body like heated steel. The need to push himself into her wet core made his balls ache. He wanted them to be naked, sharing the slick slide of sweat as he entered her.

Burying his nose in her neck helped soothe the raging need. Her scent calmed him like nothing else ever had. Blood pounded through her body in a beautiful rhythm, making his gums itch with the need to extend his teeth and sip of her nectar. Instead, he placed a light kiss on her throat and nipped her collarbone before trailing his tongue to her ear. She moaned and arched slightly against his chest. That was all the invitation he needed. The rage still pounded through his veins, fuzzing his thoughts and allowing his primal self to emerge with a roar. He would take her and make her see that they were meant to be together.

See what I mean. He's hot and focused. Definitely one of my favorite characters!

  1. I guess techno-wizard be a very smart person.

  2. I like Alpha heroes. They know what they want and they get it, but at the same time, they know how to give the heroine what she needs as well. evamillien at gmail dot com Thanks for sharing the hop and the giveaways.

  3. thanks for the giveaway! and i like alpha heros very much

  4. I love Alpha Males. They keep me coming back for more. They are …strong, independent, fiercely protective, but on the inside they are nothing but a big ole’ teddy bear! I love the way their mouths talk dirty, but their eyes show their vulnerability. They can be rough and tough in the bedroom, but still have the gentle caress of an attentive and protective lover. It's all in the heart.....alpha males are the best!

  5. Strong, loving,confident and devoted are just some of the characteristics I love.
    Thank you for the hop and giveaway.

  6. I love alpha males and strong females and the sexual tension that grows as they deny their feeling for each other.


  7. I don't think there's one specific trait that pulls me in. It all depends on how I connect with the characters and story. I do love a book that has a lot of sexual tension though.

  8. I definitely love Alpha heros that are dominant. I think one things I love the most is their willingness to do anything to make their partner/spouse/soulmate happy, loved, sage, and protected.
    Thanks for the giveaway and hop!
