I would first like to thank Brittany for including me in this amazing giveaway. I'm offering a ecopy of Scent of a White Rose as my contribution, but the book that I would like to talk about today is Roses & Thorns.
This short-story is book 1.5 in The Rose Trilogy, and takes us back to when Christian and Rose first met. I've had a blast writing this book and seeing Rose with her mother, and Christian being teased for dating a human, was a real treat. I can't wait for you guys to get your hands on this book and see how Rose and Christian's relationship began. For your reading pleasure, here is an un-edited excerpt:
As soon as I parked the car across from the restaurant, it took everything I had not to use my vampire speed to race across the street. It was becoming glaringly obviously that it had been ages since I'd actually been out on an real date. Well, nothing like jumping in feet first, because here she came.
She was just as gorgeous as I remembered. Her hair held a little more curve to it than last time, and my god those legs were just as sexy as I'd imagined. Watching her lock her car and walk in my direction, I suddenly realized that keeping my drifting in check tonight was definitely going to be a exercise in sheer willpower.
She was smiling as she hopped up onto the curb right in front of me. "Hi!"
My first instinct was to grab her and race away to somewhere private and sink my fangs into her neck. She was so sexy and smelled so good, but I knew that would never work, because as impossible as it sounded, I was already falling in love with her.
When a vampire fell in love, they couldn't feed from that person without revealing their secret. This was because a vampire's sedative wouldn't work on the ones they loved; a complete inconvenience at the moment. "Hello. It's nice to actually meet you, Rose." I held out my hand hoping she'd take it. She did.
