Book Monster Promotions: Guest Post and Giveaway with Gabrielle Bisset



I am so excited to have Gabrielle visiting BLH again, please give her a warm welcome.. 

Thanks for having me here today at Book Lovers Hideaway! I'm touring blogs all month with Book Monster Promotions talking about my Sons of Navarus series in preparation for the 4th novel in the series, Blood Prophecy, which is coming May 14, 2013. For readers who've followed the Sons from the beginning, it will be a real turning point, and for readers who haven't begun the series yet, there's more than enough time to get lost in the Sons' world.

When I set out to write a series about eight vampire warriors, I wanted to create one that readers would fall in love with. With that in mind, I decided that each book's hero would be different. The result is eight heroes each with his unique style and flavor. There's Vasilije, the hedonist who lives for pleasure; Saint, the tortured, brooding hero; Terek, the mystical and spiritual hero and warrior for his kind. Then there are Ramiel, the violent Son, and Thane, the gentle giant who together with Ramiel must decipher the Prophecy of Idolas to save the vampire world from Archon takeover. Sion is the brainy, quiet Son with a past that still haunts him, while Dante is the youngest Son and the joker of the group. Finally, there is Nico, the oldest Son and not what he appears to be.

The key to each book being different is the focus on the little things that make each Son unique. That means for one choosing a setting that fits each one's style and personality. So Vasilije, the decadent hedonist who lives to enjoy life, has his story, Blood Avenged, set in New Orleans, a wonderfully sultry and sexy city so full of pleasure. No one would ever mistake his book with Saint's book, Blood Betrayed, which is very much his character. Saint is distant and defensive, so his book is set in the French countryside, away from everything, and the town of Avignon, a walled city in France. Now Terek is the most seductive of all the Sons while at the same time being the most spiritual, so Spain and Morocco are perfect settings for this former Catholic monk and vampire who studied Islam while at the same time has sired thousands of female vampires who view him almost as a god. Blood Spirit is very much like Terek—seductive but mystical.

 With Blood Prophecy, readers will instantly see that the setting of Rome matches the violent and dominant Son Ramiel's personality. Centuries of conquering made Rome the most powerful city in the most powerful empire on the planet. While Rome may be less aggressive today, it fits the character of Ramiel perfectly. It's also the perfect setting for the major turning point in the series.

 For some, writing may be something that works only on the surface, but my stories always have deeper meanings for those that choose to see them. While they work on the romantic and erotic level, they also work on other levels too.

Thanks again for having me here today! Readers can grab the first five chapters of Blood Prophecy for FREE as they wait for the May 14th release of the full book.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR: 

I'm a UF/PNR author and my newest releases are Blood Spirit, the third book in my new series Sons of Navarus, and the Sons short stories Longing and The Deepest Cut. For me, a book does more than just tell a story. It transports readers away from their daily lives to another place where they can be a part of something different than the common and everyday. I'm always so touched when readers tell me they felt like they were a part of the story when they read my books.

When I'm not writing, I can be found reading romance novels but often mysteries, cookbooks, and anything dealing with ancient and medieval history and European history, in general. I also love the outdoors, so I enjoy the wonderful weather Pennsylvania has to offer. I live there with my son and a herd of pets.

Excerpt from Blood Avenged:


Vasilije looked around the room he’d just appeared in, his body alert to any danger. He’d followed the sense he’d gotten before Teagan’s spirit had been extinguished and knew he was in his home in New Orleans. Everything about the place was Teagan—from the Turkish cigarettes he smoked, to the bottle of Guinness that sat on the coffee table, to the musky scent that identified him as one of Vasilije’s vampires.

And the beautiful woman staring at him.

“Who did this?” Vasilije demanded.

Big brown eyes stared back at him. “I don’t know. It happened so fast. I left to grab another six pack and when I got back, someone had a stake...”

Vasilije stood watching the stranger as she cried, needing more information but forced to wait until there was a break in her tears.

“Who are you?”

The woman dried her eyes and sniffled. “Sasa. I was his girlfriend.”

At the use of the past tense, she began tearing up again, but Vasilije didn’t have time for it. Whoever had staked Teagan couldn’t have gone too far and any more time wasted with Sasa’s crying may mean he’d lose the fucker.

He moved to leave and her hand caught his arm.

“Please don’t go.”

She looked up at him with such a sad expression for a moment he didn’t want to go. But he couldn’t let Teagan’s murderer escape. Vasilije touched his hand to hers to remove it from his arm, but all this did was make her squeeze tighter.

“Please,” she begged in a voice that matched the pathetic look in her eyes. “Don’t leave me alone now.”

The urge to tear his arm from her hold and leave her to her misery spiked in him, but it was overruled by that small part of him that understood her sadness.

“Fine. Follow me. And keep up. And if I tell you to do something, do it. Do you understand?”

For a second, she looked surprised, and Vasilije thought he was going to hear a string of irritating questions. None came, though, and when he turned to head out the door, she followed silently.

At the street, he stopped and inhaled deeply, hoping to sense something that would help him find Teagan’s killer. Nothing came. But there’d been something in the apartment...something that he was sure he recognized.

Eyes closed, he let his other senses take over, but he got nothing. “What did he look like?”

“I don’t know. It was so quick. Blond, I think.”

Vasilije snapped his head to the left to look at her. “Man or woman?”

Instantly, Tatiana’s threat repeated in his head. Now I take something you cherish. Had she staked one of his vampires in retaliation over Alex? Vasilije doubted even Tatiana would stake a vampire herself, but she wasn’t above having someone else do it.

 “Man.”

That didn’t mean Tatiana wasn’t behind Teagan’s murder. And who was this woman who claimed to be Teagan’s girlfriend?

“Did you see which direction he ran?”

Sasa shook her head sadly. “No, I’m sorry. Are you his sire?” “

How do you know about that?” he asked, more suspicious than he’d been just a minute earlier.

“Teagan was a vampire, and you just look like a sire would. That’s what you call them, right?”

 As she spoke, Vasilije studied her under the streetlight’s glow, still unsure she was who she claimed to be. Not bad looking, she seemed like someone Teagan could like. He’d always preferred brunettes with big eyes and bigger tits, and although she didn’t measure up to porn star level, she still had a nice body. He could see her as Teagan’s girlfriend.
