Bound To A Vampire by Grey Francis

Bound To A Vampire by Grey Francis 

Cassandra Montclaire is a three-hundred-and-sixty-year-old vampire living in modern-day New York. Her human life ended three centuries earlier when, condemned as a witch, she was rescued and turned by a Master Vampire named Killian. Bonded in a passionate trio with their Protector, the three lived an exciting and dangerous life full of love, decadence, and dark passion. But then Killian vanished without a trace. Until now.
A human ally of Cassandra’s has proof Killian is alive and is killing off members of his organization. Killian is now a marked man, and Cassandra must find him before time runs out and he is eliminated.
But Cassandra must first journey into her torrid past and face her demons before she can fight for what was lost.

Star Rating Five Stars


  This was another one that took me awhile to get into, but not because it was lack of being interested. No, this one was fraught with details upon details. The attention to the minute details and character development was Insane!
  In my opinion it was on the level of one of my favorite authors J.R.R. Tolkien.
Once the story grabbed me, just after Cassandra's turning, I couldn't put it down. I had to though because life got in the way. But I picked it back up when I could.
   And boy am I glad!
The way the whole story is told, and unfolds...how it all builds to the inevitable outcome at the end.... GAH! I didn't want it to end!
   Now that I've discovered this amazing author, I can't wait to read more by her!

Bite Marks by Rebecca Royce

Bite Marks by Rebecca Royce

George is a mystery writer in a small town who wants nothing more than one date with the local bartender named Trudy. When he finally scores a date, he is ecstatic. But the night before he his bitten by a vampire–and accidentally transformed into a member of the Undead. He assumes any chance he had with Trudy died the same night his need for food did. 
But, Trudy is more than she seems. A werewolf hunter on the run she knows all about vampires and if she can keep them both alive for any length of time, she might be just what George needs to survive. 
Can love survive an accidental bite?

Star Rating Four Stars


This one was a little hard for me to get into initially, but as the  story progressed I was hooked. The characters really do seem like a couple of people you might meet along the road. They didn't read like a two-dimensional, imaginary person (couple) I really liked that, it made the story setting and plot more believable.
  The pact about her brother though was an easy one to call, and I felt that there could have been a little more to his part in it. 
  But really, overall I liked it, once I got into it. 
Definitely worth a read through or two, again.

“Why did you write me?”

The quiet words gave him a degree of control. “I beg your pardon?”

Her tongue darted out to wet the plump flesh of her lower lip. “Why did you write me? Why did you write those letters?”

Stifling a groan, he cursed himself. Control yourself, man. “You were the one who made the error.”

“Yes,” she said. “But you didn’t need to write back.”

No, he hadn’t. Her letter had clearly been an error, addressed to her friend and full of the easy conversation of long acquaintance. He never should have read it, but he couldn’t help himself. It had been so full of life, so happy and joyous, and he’d wanted to experience that. “Because I liked them. Your letters.”

“What did you like of them?” A smile lit her face, a soft thing that seemed directed more at herself than him. “It was Etta, correct? She and her antics?”

A smile tugged at his own mouth, and he allowed it some expression but not enough to pull his scar. “No, I liked you. That is, I like you.” Heat rose along his neck.

“Oh.” A similar blush stained her skin. “Well. I like you, too.”

He couldn’t stop his smile then.

She drew in her breath.

Immediately, he wiped the expression from his face. He knew how he appeared when he forgot himself.

“Why did you stop smiling?” Confusion filled her voice.

Staring at the floor, he said, “I apologize. I know it’s grotesque.”

“What is grotesque?”

He dug his hands into the chair. “When I smile.”

“No. Edward, no—”

“Of course it is,” he said, and not even her calling him by his Christian name again lightened him. “I am scarred, Gwen. You cannot claim not to have noticed.”

“No, I have, I only—You smiled and I thought....You are so handsome, and when you smile, you are even more—” She cut herself off. A furious blush lit her cheeks.

She thought him handsome? A low boil started within him, and he could not tear his gaze from her lips.

And what everyone has been waiting for...

The Interview

1.) What made you write about zombies?
Once upon a time, long before the Walking Dead made them a household name, zombies were the “underdog” of the paranormal world. In YA, which was my chosen genre, it was vampires who were having all the fun. I saw zombies as a way to break from that strict mold of vampire lore and create a new mythology that was hopefully not so rigid.

2.) When did you love for writing start?
My love for writing started with my very first Judy Blume book, Blubber. Before then I had always read for school, never for pleasure. Judy Blume taught me that reading could do more than entertain, even while being entertaining – it could enlighten, inform, educate and even inspire!

3.) Can we expect more zombie loving from you in the future?
I am always writing more zombie stories, and look forward to taking what I’ve learned about the undead into new and exciting territories!

4.) Tell us one thing that someone might not know about you and your writing.

I’m actually NOT a zombie! Nor do I know any zombies, un-living or un-dead! Seriously, though, the one thing that someone might not know about me and my writing is that, no matter what time of year it is, I’m probably listening to Christmas carols while I’m writing! (Shhhhh, don’t tell anyone!)

5.) What is your favorite hobby?

If I’m not writing or spending time with my wife, I’m watching movies! I have a deep passion for movies and I find that watching them helps me create better stories – especially zombie ones!
