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 being....it'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 interest....you'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.
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.
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…?
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: www.Smutketeers.com 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 :)
