Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles – Name Before the Masses Book Tour!

Virtual Book Tour with Goddess Fish PromotionsI just finished my first official Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles Virtual Book Tour with the lovely ladies at Goddess Fish Promotions!! Now we're doing another tour that doesn't require quite as much attention from me, as I'll be busy next month with a slew of other things – like the RomanceNovel Convention and working on my audio books for my series. This tour will go from July 19 – September 16. Just like the last tour, I'm giving away prizes and swag, so be sure to leave comments at every stop to increase your chances of winning! Here are the stops for the Name Before the Masses Book Tour:

Character Appearances

Broderick MacDougal - Bonded By Blood Vampire Chronicles - catch him on the virtual book tour!

Broderick “Rick” MacDougal

Broderick MacDougal and Angus Campbell are really enjoying the Internet and connecting with all you ladies out there!! And there's a little bit of a rivalry going on. Leave a comment for these immortal Scottish rogues and you just might hear from them.

Angus Campbell - catch him on the virtual book tour!

Angus Campbell

Remember, though, they're at the whim of the sunset and rumor has it they're in the UK and Europe during the virtual book tour, so at least the time zones will work pretty well for connecting with these HOT Scottish Vampires. (Okay, I don't know about you, but Rick just gets my heart pumpin' and my kitty purrin'!!!)

James Knightly

James Knightly finally came out to play! And he's mortal, so he can come out to play anytime. 😉 The ladies – Davina and Cailin – are available, too, so don't be afraid to leave them a comment.

Summer Scorcher Blog Tour – Week 6 – The Perfect Hero

Welcome to part two of my blog post on the Scorcher Blog Tour.
If you missed part one, please go here: http://findingthewritewords.blogspot.com

Thank you, Arial, for hosting me on your site!

In my last post we were about to breakdown our perfect hero into sections. But before we do that, we need to welcome our five heroes into the room. They’ve graciously allowed us to perform a little experimentation.

Let’s start with our hero’s personality. His personality must shine. AJ, Lisa, Arial, and Sarah like their hero with a good sense of humour, patient, committed, and good natured. While Amie likes a hero who doesn’t take himself too seriously. Amie wants her hero to let her show him how it’s really done. Amie, you naughty little girl! Continue reading

Scorcher Blog Tour – Things That Make You Go “Oooooooooh!” – Part 4

Hey, peeps! I’ve got some mad love for those of you who’ve stayed with me this far. Mad Love!

Food and sex. Sounds like the makings for a sticky situation…yes? Well, I suppose if you and your honey buns decide to frolick in a large vat of chocolate, then yes, sticky would be the least of your problems. But, what I’m referring to is the wonderful ability of certain foods to enhance your desire and propel those lusty thoughts you’ve been harboring for your significant other into action.  I’ve touched a bit on this subject in previous blog posts, but thought I’d go over it again here, and list the top 10 foods that serve as aphrodisiacs. Some of these foods you’ll probably agree with. Others I think will surprise you. Continue reading
