DRINKING AND WINNING GIVEAWAY HOP!

drinking and winning giveaway hop



The Pre- Party Giveaway Hop is being hosted by Reading Romances as a preparation for their blogiversary party on March 29!

Let me introduce myself, my name is Karyn Gerrard, I am an erotic romance author and write in many different genres. I have 4 ebooks published and 2 more coming out this spring. To have a look at my books, click HERE

So I should recommend a drink I suppose. But first, I will share a couple of drinks my heroes concocted in my paranormal, BLACK LUST. (I don't suggest you make these at home, lol!) BLACK LUST is an ARe (All Romance) Best Seller and Reading Romances gave it 5 stars  Black Lust is a strong paranormal tale, I want more! says Nat.






Wolfram, who is part vampire, human and werewolf has a favorite drink

RED GRANGER

 1 plasma bag of O positive blood
1/2 kilogram of raw hamburger
3 oz of Canadian Club

Put all ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve in a high ball glass with a dash of parsley.







Lucius, who is a Quarter (one-quarter vampire) has a favorite:

BLOOD BELLINI

1 peach, pureed
4 oz of  B positive blood, chilled
1 oz of peach schnapps
1 oz  Prosecco

served over crushed ice in a champagne glass

Now I will recommend a drink you CAN make at home! Be sure and drink the Irish Car Bomb while you read one of my books! :D

IRISH CAR BOMB


Add the Bailey's and Jameson to a shot glass, layering the Bailey's on the bottom. Pour the Guinness into a pint glass or beer mug 3/4 of the way full and let settle. Drop the shot glass into the Guinness and chug. If you don't drink it fast enough it will curdle and increasingly taste worse.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I had fun making up those two drinks, I could be a bartender to the supernatural world! My second book in this Blackthorne Clan series comes out next month. BLACK DESIRE.

  1. What about a paranormal hero appeals to me the most? I guess it would have to be the otherworldlyness of him. The fact that he might have fangs, shape shift or have supernatural powers (speed, healing or esp). It would be the part of him that made him different from all other humans.

    thanks for participating in the hop and congrats on your new release!

  15. A paranormal hero is a super being, having special abilities and strengths that no normal human has. It is a whole new world in which shapeshifters, vampires, witches and other super beings live.

  17. I like the mystery and magic of paranormal heroes. They're stronger and more devoted than typical human males. Of course there's always those few who are just downright evil.... I certainly prefer the "twilight" vamps to the " Thirty Days of Night" vamps.

  31. Since my favorite paranormal hero's are shifters, I have to say it's their protective & possessive streak when it comes to their mate & pack. Who doesn't want a man who would do anything to keep them safe, even if sometimes you want to knock them on their ass for taking it a little too far?
