Romance Paranormal

The author of Blood on Silk brings readers the next novel in her seductive new Awakened by Blood series. Months after her dangerous encounter with the vampire overlord Saloman, Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is still trying to cope with both the demands of her vampire-hunting bloodline-and the desire she feels for Saloman, the immortal she brought back from the grave.

But when Saloman's ancient sword becomes the object of a ruthless race between humans and vampires, Elizabeth must decide between unwanted loyalty, or unholy love.

Re: Blood Sin

I love the idea of an intelligent vampire story. I haven't read any since Anne Rice's books. And the twilight books left me wanting something not for the teen set.
(Pam Howell 7:38am April 21, 2011)

Sounds intriguing for sure...like one that I won't be able to put down...Thanks for sharing...
Dawn Staniszeski 8:23am April 21, 2011)

Your books sound great. I love reading vampire stories and yours sound really interesting. The covers are also amazing.
June A, Manning 9:42am April 21, 2011)

This series sounds so great! Best of luck in your future endeavors!
Renee Pajda 9:44am April 21, 2011)

Sounds great! Saloman sounds like an eternal bad boy.
Cherie Japp 10:24am April 21, 2011)

Thanks to Fresh Fiction for letting me blog today :). And thanks for all the kind comments!

Hi Pam, I'm a big fan of Anne Rice - Interview with the Vampire blew me away when I first read it years ago!

Dawn, glad you're intrigued :)- and you're welcome!

Thanks, June, I love the covers too!

Thank you, Renee!

Hi Cherie - he has his moments :).

Marie Treanor 10:52am April 21, 2011)

I often wonder if some writers believe that intelligence and romance are mutually exclusive. I love the idea that someone very intelligent can also find love and desire themselves. Using all parts of the brain and heart are what most people do. Intelligence does not dull the senses. On the contrary, I think it sometimes makes you more aware. Thank you for reminding me of that with this book.
Renee Brown 10:57am April 21, 2011)

I loved your the first book. I bet this book is going to an excellent read as well. Never underestimate a woman in a long red dress that is backless, the results are endless someone once told me. Can't wait for yor next book, best of luck with you and any book that write in the future
Anthonia Sharp 10:57am April 21, 2011)

Your book sounds so intriguing, and the way you explained it has me hooked!! I'm very anxious to read it!! This is completely out of my genre, but I'm sure it's a book I will thoroughly enjoy!! Your home sounds lovely as well. Congratulations on your new book. I'm sure it's going to do very well!!
Peggy Roberson 11:47am April 21, 2011)

I love vampire stories and this one sounds really interesting. I'm looking forward to reading it!
Cheryl Lynne 1:06pm April 21, 2011)

Love vampire stories! Especially one where the hero and heroine are both
May Pau 1:22pm April 21, 2011)

I have not gotten my hands on this series yet, but I love the sound of it! Thanks for sharing!
Colleen Conklin 1:23pm April 21, 2011)

This series sounds awesome. I am dying to know if mortal elizabeth joins saloman and they get their happily ever after. Thanks for the new read!!
Sherie Lagarde 1:56pm April 21, 2011)

Haven't read many vampire books but I'd read this one.
Jackie Wisherd 2:14pm April 21, 2011)

Blood Sin sounds so interesting. I really enjoy paranormal romances. The fact that the heroine has a complicated relationship with the vampire only makes it more interesting to me.
Stacie Deramo 2:20pm April 21, 2011)

Renee, my pleasure :) Thanks for your interesting comment!

Thanks, Antonia! I'm so glad you enjoyed the first book - and absolutely one should never underestimate Elizabeth, especially in that red dress :)

Thanks, Peggy! I'm especially pleased if I've enticed you from other genres :).

Hi Cheryl Lynne and May Pau - good to hear! Hope you like mine too!

Thank you, Colleen, and you're welcome.

Thanks, Sherie - you'll have to wait until Book 3 in October to find that out :).

Thank you, Jackie, that's quiote a compliment!

Hi Stacie - thanks! I like complicated relationships in my reading too :).

Marie Treanor 2:47pm April 21, 2011)

Just wanted you to know I really enjoy losing myself in your books. Thank you!
Millie Corle 4:38pm April 21, 2011)

I love paranormal romance, and I am intrigued by your description of the book. I will definitely have to read it.
Tabitha Monroe 6:00pm April 21, 2011)

"gothic vampire romance for adults" THANK YOU!!!! Love the cover.
Mary Preston 6:23pm April 21, 2011)

It does sound like she has a cushy easy job doesn't it?
Diane Sadler 6:57pm April 21, 2011)

Your new series sounds great!
Marjorie Carmony 7:47pm April 21, 2011)

I am intrigued by vampires and would be delighted to read your book.
Cheryl English 9:16pm April 21, 2011)

Elizabeth sounds like a great character. The story surrounding the free-will and loyalty the way you have described puts your book on my must read list.
Carla Carlson 9:28pm April 21, 2011)

This sounds like a really good book!
Robin Daily 10:05pm April 21, 2011)

I love paranormal romances, I havent had the honor of reading any of your books yet, but I am greatly looking forward to doing so. As other commented, that it has a certain twist to Anne Rice's Vampire Novels I am sure I will be hooked because I have read and own every single book she has written and enjoyed them from interview of the vampire to armand, the witches chronicles, etc.. I would like to find another author who can spellbind me as she has done in the past. I would be honored to if I won, thank you. [email protected]
Lisette Reyes 10:08pm April 21, 2011)

I want this book. I have it on my wish list. The series sounds really good.
Jennifer Beyer 10:40pm April 21, 2011)

Sounds good. It's hard to find any vapors romance described as
intelligent. I'll have to read it.
Christina Young 10:49pm April 21, 2011)

It sounds like your heroine has quite a tall order to fill. Lucky for us readers.
G. Bisbjerg 11:29pm April 21, 2011)

Sounds like a great book. Enjoyed what I read.
Sheila True 11:41pm April 21, 2011)

Not only does the novel sound wonderful. You were very fortunate with the art department and the cover!
Cynthia Netherton 11:41pm April 21, 2011)

Why do good girls love bad boys, even if they are vampires? Story of my life; the bad boys not the vampires.
Diane Chenier 11:41pm April 21, 2011)

Thank you, Millie! What a lovely comment to wake up to!

Good news, Tabitha - thank you :).

You're welcome, Mary :), And I agree entirely about the cover!

LOL, Diane - keeps her busy!

Thanks, Marjorie!

Cheryl, great to hear!

Thank you, Carla, that's good to know :).

Thanks, Robin!

Hi Lisette! Thanks for your comment. I'd be honoured to come anywhere close to the wonderful Anne Rice in your estimation.

Great, Jennifer - thank you!

Thanks, Christina. I liked the description myself, but as I say it's still first and foremost a vampire romance!

Thanks, G - I like to keep her on her toes :).

Good to hear, Sheila - thank you!

Thank you, Cynthia! And I do feel very lucky with the cover art...

Not sure, Diane, but it seems to work in fiction :). And vampires ARE the ultimate bad boys!

Marie Treanor 1:36am April 22, 2011)

Your book sounds great, I love reading vampire stories.
Frances Namuth 2:44am April 22, 2011)

Thanks, Frances - hope you enjoy this one too :)

Marie Treanor 4:23am April 22, 2011)

I like that there are realistic obstacles to the relationship. The heroine has to decide if she wants a relationship and then how they can be together since they have such different views of how the world works.
Lindsey Ekland 5:40am April 22, 2011)

OH my but this sounds great. I absolutely love my Vampire
Romance. The idea of the story being related to everyday live
with intelligent people is fantastic. I will be looking for it
in stores.
Terry Forester 10:08am April 22, 2011)

I'm really tired of all the lusty vampire stories. Your book sounds different. Good for you!
Molly Wilsbacher 10:14am April 22, 2011)

Blood Sin sounds very interesting. I have just started reading vampire stories and not sure why I didn't before..I am at retirement age so think it is about time I tried them. I now have them added to my favorites and realized I missed out on much good reading. [email protected]
Susan Leech 10:59am April 22, 2011)

I love the idea that intelligence is important in a relationship, before, during and
after. Way to go!!!!!! I'm looking forward to this one. I'm tired of thinking "what
a dumb thing to do" even if the story is good otherwise.
Sandra Spilecki 11:16am April 22, 2011)

Thanks for your comment Lindsey - insightful!

Thank you, Terry - great to know!

Hi Molly! I wouldn't like to mislead you, so I'd better tell you that my vampires are pretty lusty and Elizabeth and Saloman's story is very steamy in parts :). But the other things are there too!

Hi Susan. I suppose we all go through phases with our reading, and go with what suits our mood at the time. But I'm very glad to hear you're reading vampire stories now!

Thanks, Sandra :). Of course, even the cleverst people make mistakes, and behave stupidly from time to time, so my characters are not inhumanly perfect! But they do think :)

Marie Treanor 11:55am April 22, 2011)

This sounds like a good book and the cover is great. Nothing
better than an intelligent Vampire story.
Ilona Fenton 1:46pm April 22, 2011)

Thanks, Ilona :)
Marie Treanor 1:27am April 23, 2011)

Chris Bails 1:05pm April 26, 2011)
