VAMPIRES FOR VALENTINES GIVEAWAY HOP!




February is the month of love and what do we love more than hot, sexy, dangerous and seductive vampires? Vampires For Valentines Giveaway Hop is all about spreading our love for these supernatural creatures.


Vampires For Valentines Giveaway Hop runs from 12:01am February 10th through to 11:59pm February 16th 2012, and is hosted by Felicity Heaton (Paranormal Romance Author) and Bitten by Paranormal Romance.


Hi and welcome to the Vampires for Valentines Blog Hop! Let me introduce myself if you haven't heard of me. My name is Karyn Gerrard and I write in a lot of different genres, including paranormal.

Don't you just love paranormal heroes?  Let's face it, vampires, werewolves and shape-shifters do not make for tender, cuddly hero-types. But they do, it seems. And therein I believe, lies the appeal.  Dark and tortured goes without saying. They are usually all 6'5 or taller, their bodies and faces would make Greek Gods weep or romance cover models slink off in shame, not worthy being in these guys presence. They are all hugely endowed and in a perpetual state of arousal. Okay, so he has this...thing. No one is perfect. So he changes into a werewolf once a month or can shape shift into a Jaguar or has this bug-a-boo with blood. We can work around that, right?

 Leave a comment and tell me what you love about a paranormal hero or which type you prefer (Vampire, demon, etc) and you could win an e-copy of the first book in my Blackthorne Clan paranormal series with Evernight Publishing BLACK LUST and when available, the sequel BLACK DESIRE~



The sequel BLACK DESIRE is tentatively scheduled for release In April.

  3. I think it would have to be demons as they can give the author free reign on their powers and skills.

  5. Given my books, I'd better say vamps are my favorite paranormal heroes or I can think of at least one sociopath who'll let me hear about it when I try to continue his story. ::mutters about bossy blonds::

    They're ageless. What's (generally) not to like, if you can get past the all-liquid diet thing? I wouldn't object to never getting older. I'd love to see what the world has in store in future centuries.

    1. Tory, I so agree. The mortality thing opens a whole can of tortured heartbreak. The weariness of living so long. Love it. Cheers!

  6. I really enjoy a great vampire book. Sexy, dark, tormented, horny and hunky. My fave vampire is Jacob from the Vampire Queen series by Joey W. Hill. The cover for Black Lust is awesome! Thanks for the chance to win.

  9. Hi Karyn,

    I really haven't a preference.but if I had to chose, I'll go with a vampire. There romantic and sexy, but what really gets me going is that there always this little evilness going on underneath them and I find that a very hit turn-on. Call a girl crazy, but it does...lol

  18. Here's the thing with paranormal heroes, they generally live a long time, so they have to be serious when picking a life mate, they are generally more alpha than your typical male (um, understatement), and they are supernaturally hot... what's not to love??

  19. My favorite type will always be the Vampire. I grew up with the B&W watching Bela Lugosi and Lon Chaney along with the Abbott and Costello "Meet" comedies. Add in DARK SHADOWS and then discovering the written DRACULA. Yep, Vamps all the way. But the emergence of Fallen Angels is gaining some momentum.

      Fallen angels and even demons work well too.

  20. I have to admit, of late my favourite type of paranormal hero has been a were - i love the usual werewolves but have stumbled across a couple others (werebear, wererabbit, werepanther) & all of them are very cool! Not immortal like a vamp but still get a decent life span!
    I do still love the vampires, demons, angels etc but my favourites change all the time. I even love a paranormal 'alien' character - from Eve Langlais' Alien mate series :)
    Thanks for the giveaway & for opening it internationally ^_^

  23. My first love will always be the Vampire. They were my first love and will always be really special, but I do love all kinds of PNR (shifters, demons, angels, etc). I love the alpha men, they are dominate, confident, protective, faithful, strong. All this and dangerous too. So sexy!!!

    1. June, I agree. I am rather fond of other paranormal heroes but the vamp is my fav. I also like a mixture, like a half-demon half vamp hero. I agree with everything you said. Dangerous but tender, what a combo!
