Welcome to my blog, it is mostly about books, I host promo's for promotion companies, I do reviews and Interviews, and sometimes guests posts. I read many genres, but my favorites are Fantasy, Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Fantasy, Epic Fantasy, YA Fantasy, Historical Romances and Dystopian.
Lady Snow Gwyn is tired of playing "mother" to her seven Vampire Slaying brothers. For the past two years, she's yearned to be out there fighting at their side as they hunt for bloodsuckers in the black of night. Snow is as good a fighter as any man, but she wasn't called to be a Slayer. A mere formality in her book.Prince Sageren, Son of Lothar has spent the last fifty years in exile, awaiting the day when he can finally avenge his family and take back his throne. Barely existing, he's forced to face his inner demons and the monster he once was, compelling him to vow to never drink from humans again. A simple enough task--until he crosses paths with a human who makes his fangs ache to drain her.That's why when Snow runs into Prince Sage on a late night trip to the woods, she's torn between the urge to kill him and the desire to succumb to the feeling he stirs within her. And when Snow's life is threatened by the same evil that murdered his family, Prince Sage must enlist the aid of Snow's brothers to not only help him save her life, but to also regain his rightful place as King of the Vampires.If Sage can keep the Slayers from killing him first.
"You should go." Snow raised her sword again.
He watched her with an intensity that made her shiver involuntarily. She backed up a pace. Midnight rendezvous were fanciful in storybooks, but in real life they rarely ended well. Trusting a stranger was not only reckless, it was stupid, and she wasn't stupid.
"I'm not going to hurt you, love." He put up his hands and smiled. His pearly teeth shone.
"Don’t' call me 'love.’"
"I'm Sage. And you are?" He held his hand out to her.
His manner was fine, as was his speech, and yet there was something so predatory about him, that scared her.
"Snow." She swallowed hard and waited to see if he recognized her name as the youngest of Lord Gwyn's children.
It appeared he did not.
"Where are you from? I don't recognize you."
He continued to smile. "You've been introduced to everyone in the area?"
Embarrassment heated her cheeks. "Most people, yes. And a man of your speech and manner is someone I'm sure I would have been introduced to, or at least heard of before."
Sage stretched and rubbed his chest. "'I'm not from here."
His voracious stare made her stomach flutter and her heartbeat quicken. "Are you from Wolvenglen?"
He laughed lightly. "I'm no werewolf, if that's what you're wondering."
She scanned for a means of escape, but from where he stood, the only direction to go was opposite where she needed to be.
A peace fell over the grove and her skin grew warm and comfortable. Her feet sank into the ground as if she had suddenly sprouted roots.
He moved closer. In the burgeoning dawn his face came into full view. He was handsome with high cheekbones, and eyes the color of aquamarines. His regal nose gave way to full crimson lips.
He stopped a foot from her and pushed down on the tip of her sword, causing it to hit the grass with a soft thud. His gaze locked on hers and her heartbeat quickened.
"I'm from far away," he said. "A place you've never been."
"How would you know where I've been?" Though she couldn't seem to get her body to move, she refused to give over her mind.
"Because I would have remembered if you'd ever visited."
"And you know every person that visits your lands?"
His face grew serious. "Yes."

SNOW THE VAMPIRE SLAYER—PLAYLIST AND NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR
I have sung since the day I learned to talk. I have a perfect sense of pitch and an uncanny knack for hearing a song once and being able to pick up the tune instantly. I also have a thing for memorizing, so music lyrics are easy for me. All those things combined with my father teaching me the benefit of amazing music, had me growing up as someone who couldn’t live without it.
I’ve been asked many times if I had to choose between losing my sight or losing my hearing, which I would prefer and I always say, my sight. I just couldn’t live without music.
So it should come as no surprise that I listen to music when I write. Especially dramatic or intensely emotional scenes.
Snow the Vampire Slayer was no exception. Snow is a strong, independent, yet deeply loving woman. And Sage is a tormented and witty yet heroic man. Because of that, I needed music that represented both them as well as the love that blossomed between them.
So here is a list of five songs that I listened to while writing Snow the Vampire Slayer.
5. Kelly Clarkson – Dark side. I love this song because it sums up Sage all together. He is so dark and tormented but wants so badly to have someone to open up to. He wants Snow to love him and his dark side, but he’s afraid that when she finds out what he really is, she won’t.
4. Christina Perri – A Thousand Years. I think this song fits Sage so well. First of all, he’s a vampire so he’s old. Second he’s been waiting a long time not only to find someone to love, but also to take back the throne that was stolen from him.
3. Jordin Sparks – Battlefield. Snow is tough lady and I thought this song very appropriate for her. She’s tried many times to find love but in the end it’s been a battle for her. And in the case of her and Sage it really does start a war and she gets stuck in the middle. So I really loved this song for her.
2. Sara Bareillis – Brave. I thought this song is great for Snow because for most of the book she’s strong, but she never really stands up to her brothers. It isn’t until something out of her control happens to her that she finally finds her inner strength to be brave and speak for herself and do what she wants to do, instead of what everyone expects her to.
1. The Candian Tenors – Hallelujah. So this is one of my all time favorite songs. The emotions in this song just get to me. There is one section that I think really represents what Snow did to Sage:
Your faith was strong but you needed proof, You saw her bathing on the roof, Her beauty and the moon light over threw ya, She tied you to a kitchen chair, She broke your throne, she cut your hair, And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah.
That’s what Snow did to him, she got to Sage in places he didn’t know he could be gotten to and in the end he couldn’t live without her.
So what songs do you think represent Snow and Sage? Let me know!
