Guest Author & Giveaway: Eden Bradley featuring The Turning Kiss

Wednesday, March 16

I think you all know that I don't read very much paranormal romance any more.  It's not that I dislike the occasional vampire, shifter, or other supernatural's just that it's not what I naturally gravitate to...that is unless you entice me with a few of my favorite things.  

For instance, if you make the hero Scottish...say with a verra sexy Scottish accent, then you've got my attention.  But when you also add other romance elements that I enjoy reading, like a story with menage and something a little bit darker or forbidden like BDSM....all in one book, then you've got more than my've got my heard earned dollars ;)

Author Eden Bradley is my guest today to share her newest story in her Midnight Playground series, The Turning Kiss, which released yesterday from Samhain Publishing.  Read and enjoy!

I’m so thrilled to be here today to celebrate the release of THE TURNING KISS, Book Three in my Midnight Playground vampire series, which just came out yesterday! I adore my vampires, and I love writing these books so much! And my favorite vampire, Ever, makes an appearance in this book (he first appeared in BLOODSONG, Book Two in the series, and will have his own story in Book Four, EVERSONG). Also in this book is my hot Scotsman, Calam. What is it about a sexy accent that just brings me to my knees? Am I the only one…? The perfect counterpoint to Calam was Ilana. She’s sort of a tough cookie-cool, calm, sophisticated. I like writing a character who’s got a wall up. Because seeing them fall in love, seeing love bring that wall down one crumbling brick at a time, is exciting. What happens between Calam and Ilana, and Konstantine and Luka, my two dark, sultry vampires from the Moscow Midnight Playground club, is even more exciting! I hope you’ll all enjoy it.

They have nothing to lose…except the one gift they never expected to find.

Midnight Playground, Book 3

Ilana escaped a life of sex slavery, using her extraordinary beauty to survive among the few remaining wealthy humans in London. But she has higher aspirations. For two years she has haunted the BDSM dungeons of the Midnight Playground, hungering for The Turning Kiss—that deep drink that will make her one of them. An immortal vampire.

Turned out onto the streets of Edinburgh as a child, Calam’s tortured path led him to a job at the club, where he also engages in exotic and dangerous sex play with its clientele. Craving, like Ilana, the eternal escape of the Turning Kiss.

Ilana is undeniably drawn to the beautiful Scotsman, but she has no time to waste; the club takes no one over thirty. When a sinfully compelling vampire pair brings them together for an unusual foursome, she and Calam are shocked to discover it isn’t the vampires they crave, it’s the tenderness and emotion they feel for each other.

After years of seeking to feel something, anything, other than the pain of the past, the ultimate gift is within Ilana’s reach. Yet the cost—leaving her heart behind with a mortal—could be more than she can bear.

Product Warnings:
Three hot bisexual vampires and two mere mortals getting down and dirty at the vampire sex club. Beware of spankings, bondage, several kinds of whips, everything anal and an orgy or two…or is it three…?

Read an excerpt, & an exclusive excerpt for Musings readers (R Rated)

Why don’t I give some fun stuff away? Let’s make it a $10.00 Amazon gift card, plus a copy of the second e-book in my Midnight Playground series, BLOODSONG. To enter to win, all you have to do is go to my group blog: and look at the book flip on the upper right. Find the title of my novel under my evil twin’s…er…alter-ego’s pen name, Eve Berlin, then give it to me here in the comments. I’ll choose and announce the winner tomorrow night. That’s it-easy-peasy!

Thanks so much to the lovely folks here at Seductive Musings for having me today!

Eden/Eve : )

Congratulations Eden!  I haven't read any of the other stories in the Midnight Playground series, but it's definitely something I think I have to rectify (and very soon) because as I said before The Turning Kiss has several elements that I love in romance all in one book,  most especially (at least for me) a very sexy Scottish accent.  Eden is definitely not the only one whose knees go completely and absolutely weak at the sound of that accent!  Yeah, for me it's swoonworthy :)

Great excerpt and post. Congrats on the release.

Eve Berlin aka YOU wrote Pleasure's Edge. I loved the blurb of the Turning Kiss but you sold me on the Product Warning. LOL! I love the names of your characters in the Turning Kiss btw. Congratulations on the new release!

Hi Eden,

I just started re-reading the first book in the Midnight Playground series, so thanks for a chance to win The Turning Kiss.

Your Eve title is called, Pleasure's Edge. Love the storyline for this one and look forward to reading it as well.

Stacie-we get to write the product warnings, and we're encouraged to have fun with them. I think my favorite may be the one for Bloodsong-RG Alexander helped me write it in a sort of Dr Seuss rhyme-it still makes me laugh!
Caity-glad you enjoyed Book One in the Midnight Playground series. Aleron just had to have his own story, which turned out to be Bloodsong (he's awfully bossy!). I love writing my vampires!

Ina March 16, 2011 at 4:19 PM  

the answer is Pleasure's Edge.

Eden, you are a new author to me, but the post today made me really curious and I will def check out your books :)
wish you all the best, Ina

That excerpt was smokin hot. Wow - still fanning myself. The name of the Eve Berlin book is Pleasure's Edge. I always wondered who wrote those Samhain warnings. I didn't realize it was the authors themselves. Best wishes on the new release.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
