Vampire vs Werewolf Blog Hop: A 1Night Stand with a Vamp

Hello and welcome to the Vampire vs. Werewolf Blog Hop! If you had to choose would you cuddle up with your sexy dangerous vampire throughout the long nights or would you rather a sexy testosterone filled dominate werewolf that let out the most interesting of growls at *ahem* fun moments?

Hmm...that is a tough choice. My first choice would be one of each. *grins* Now, that would be fun. LOL.

When I started writing I fell in love with vampires first, but as I sat down and started to write and discover my 'voice' I sat my vamps aside for a bit. Then I discovered Decadent Publishing's 1Night Stand series. If you haven't read the short and amazing stories, I highly recommend them. Their fun, sexy, and awesome reads for when you want something short.

After reading several, I wondered if they were just as fun to write. Yes! I had so much fun writing Ravished Before Sunrise. Plus it gave me a chance to write a vampire story.




Ravished Before Sunrise
by Lia Davis
Blurb:

Born with the unusual ability to see what truly lies in the shadows, Emalee Black is stuck between two worlds, the paranormal and the human. Neither one accepts or understands her and she's forced to live a quiet, boring life in hiding. When her best friend mentions 1Night Stand dating service, Ema chooses a role-playing adventure straight out of her romantic fantasies. She's to hunt her very own vampire and have her wicked way him.

Vampire Darian Wyman is surprised when his daughter signs him up for a one-night stand with an exclusive matching agency. At first he's appalled by the idea, but as he reads the details of the date he becomes intrigued. For one night he will get away from the life he has long grown tired of to be hunted and captured by a would-be huntress. But he has plans of his own for his little vixen.

However, when Darian discovers the truth about Ema's inhuman abilities, the date could end before it gets started.


Now available at Decadent Publishing | Amazon | ARe | B&N

Excerpt

Darian logged into his email account. An unusual message flashed in his inbox. Madame Eve with 1Night Stand. Why did that sound familiar?

A vague recollection of his daughter mentioning the dating service two weeks before came to mind and he growled. God, please tell me she didn’t. He skimmed through the email and snatched the phone from the desk.

“Hello, Father.” A sweet and cheerful female voice answered after one ring.

“Where are you?”

“Shopping. Is there a problem?”

“You know anything about why I would receive a message from 1Night Stand?” He tried to stay calm and not overreact. The email could be a mistake. Maybe Kat had nothing to do with it.

“Oh! She found a match so soon? That’s great. You’ll have fun.”

Fun? “Katrina, I didn’t request to be set up on a date. I can’t go meet a complete stranger and….” he scanned the email again. “…and spend the night with her?”

“Oh, Daddy, please. This is my gift to you. Now be the adult and have fun.” Her sweet tone did nothing to soothe his growing annoyance.

“Kat….”

“I’m sick of you moping around the mansion. You need a change in your life. Besides, when was the last time you had sex?”

  29. I've been a vampire fan since I was a little girl. I remember watching Dark Shadows reruns on SciFi in the '90s, and I always identified with Barnabas. That said, I *love* wolves. Just not werewolves.

  34. I read and love both creatures, but tend to read more vamp books (but I think more vamp books are being written, hence the larger number). I love the premise of your book along with the excerpt, so unique. Thanks for the giveaway!

  46. I am so glad you wrote a story on Vampires. Out of the two choices, they are definitely my favorite but I am discovering on this hop that there are also a lot of Were fans. I thought my friend was a minority (she likes weres) but now I am not sure!

    Thanks for the great giveaway. Starbucks is tied at the top of my favorites list with books!
