Author: Clark Hays & Kathleen McFall

Genre: Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Pumpjack Press

Wanted: Lizzie Vaughan, Dead or Alive. 

Relationships are always hard, but for a broke cowboy and a newly turned Vampire, true love may be lethal. 

After barely surviving an undead apocalypse in The Cowboy and the Vampire, Tucker and Lizzie hightail it back to quirky LonePine, Wyoming (population 438), to start a family. But she's got a growing thirst for blood and he's realizing that mortality ain't all it's cracked up to be when your girlfriend may live forever. With a scheming Vampire nation hot on their boot heels and a price on her head, how far will Lizzie and Tucker go to protect their unlikely love? 

Blending evolution, religion and an overly sensitive cow dog named Rex, Blood and Whiskey drags the Vampire myth into the modern west, delivering double-barreled action, heart-pounding passion and wicked humor.

 My Romancing Thoughts:

A dark and thrilling world of cowboys and vampires!

Blood and Whiskey Virtual Blog Tour: Guest Post & Giveaway

Today I'd like to welcome authors Clark Hays and Kathleen McFall to Romancing the Darkside! These fabulous authors have stopped by to promote their latest release Blood and Whiskey, hosted by Pump Up Your Book. If you're a fan of vampire books with saucy characters and plenty of humor you'll want to stick around and put Blood and Whiskey on your reading list!

"Blood and Whiskey: Inspired by Paranoia"
By Clark Hays and Kathleen McFall

How one character, in particular, sets the tone for the blood- and romance-drenched second book in The Cowboy and Vampire Thriller Series. 

Blood and Whiskey is an opposites-attract love story. It’s hard to get more opposite than the salt-of-the-earth cowboy, Tucker, who falls irreversibly, hat over heels in love with Lizzie, the queen of the undead. She’s nuts about him too, and she wasn’t always a vampire — when she met Tucker she was a big city girl who thought the handsome, undereducated stranger would make for a memorable drunken mistake.

A lot can change in a few months. Now they’re pregnant, for starters.

The book captures the magic and chaos of their very different worlds colliding in a love affair for the ages. Like any new lovers, they have plenty of stuff to work through. She favors martinis and piano bars; he likes camping. He flosses too loudly; she needs human blood to survive. And that’s just the easy stuff. They are also being pursued by vampire assassins, and the world of the night walkers is teetering on the edge of civil war which could spell disaster for the human race. Plenty of action, sizzling romance and dark humor swirl around them.

With all the chemistry and passion and heartaches between them, it would be easy to assume Tucker or Lizzie provided the impetus for Blood and Whiskey. Easy, but not entirely correct. And no, it’s not Elita either, the sexy two thousand year old vampire forever taking out her boredom on unsuspecting victims in an orgy of blood and kinky sex. She demands attention, it’s true, but the secret source of paranoid energy powering Blood and Whiskey comes courtesy of Lenny.

Blog Tour: Confessions of a Sex Demon by Jaye Shields & Giveaway

A big welcome to author Jaye Shields who's currently touring her book Confessions of a Sex Demon via Sizzling PR. Ms. Shields is talking a little about her struggles as a writer, has a sexy excerpt she's sharing and what better way to end the tour stop than by giving away a copy of her book to a lucky reader!
Writing and Its Struggles...
By Jaye Shields

Big thanks to Romancing the Dark Side for letting me takeover today. My name is Jaye Shields and recently, my dream of being published came true. And let me tell ya, any writer knows that the road to publication is a long one indeed. That’s why today is all the sweeter, because I’m celebrating my very first release, Confessions of a Sex Demon, the first erotic novella in a trilogy. 
Recently, I found a runaway blog post from last year and I was a newbie author. I’d just finished my first full-length novel, Secrets of the Fog and began the querying process, seeking an agent. The majority of the blog post was spent griping about those damn automated rejection emails from agents that didn’t even seem like they’d read my query. I was so bummed because I finally finished a novel, and yet, I couldn’t get anyone to read it. 
So what’s a struggling writer to do? Join the RWA.

Review: Monster in My Closet by R.L. Naquin

Title: Monster in My Closet
Author: R.L. Naquin
Series: Monster Haven ~ Book #1
Genre: Urban Fantasy
Publisher: Carina Press
Format: ebook, 209 pages
Source: NetGalley
Buy it here: Amazon | B&N | Carina Press

I stopped believing in monsters long ago. But I knew I wasn't imagining things when I found one in my kitchen baking muffins. I'd seen him before: lurking in my closet, scaring the crap out of my five-year-old self. Turns out that was a misunderstanding, and now Maurice needs a place to stay. How could I say no?

After all, I've always been a magnet for the emotionally needy, and not just in my work as a wedding planner. Being able to sense the feelings of others can be a major pain. Don't get me wrong, I like helping people--and non-people. But this ability has turned me into a gourmet feast for an incubus, a demon that feeds off emotional energy. Now, brides are dropping dead all over town, and my home has become a safe house for the supernatural. I must learn to focus my powers and defeat the demon before he snacks on another innocent woman and comes looking for the main course... (Goodreads)

 My Romancing Thoughts:

A fun escape into a paranormal world of monsters and mayhem!

Guardian of the Moon Blog Tour: Guest Post with Laura J. Williams & Giveaway

Welcome to my stop on the Guardian of the Moon Pendant Blog Tour, hosted by BB Book Tours!

"Top 10 things NOT to do DURING the Zombie Apocalypse"
By Laura J. Williams

1. Do NOT use a car - it’s hard to maneuver a car around other broken down cars. A bike is your best bet! Unless of course you have a tank - then use that!
2. Do NOT talk. Zombies can hear you and then attack you, making you their light snack before dinner.
3. Do NOT be scared. You need all your wits about you if you are going to survive.
4. Do NOT underestimate a Zombie. They may be slow, but sooner or later they will catch up to you and eat your brain.
5. Do NOT follow the crowd. The crowd will slow you down and the horde of undead Zombies will follow them first.
6. Do NOT hesitate to attack a zombie. They are undead and won’t feel any pain. So go ahead and chop off an arm or leg but make sure you pop their head off so they’ll die.
7. Do NOT wear heavy clothing or armor. This will slow you down when you run from a Zombie horde.
8. Do NOT hang around people who will slow you down. (This means people who are horizontally challenged.)
9. Do NOT become emotionally attached to friends - for they may turn into a Zombie and you may have to off them.
10. Do NOT try to negotiate with a Zombie. They are the living dead and really just want to eat your brains. So overall it’s just a big waste of time! RUN!!!!

Review: What Kills Me by Wynne Channing

Title: What Kills Me
Author: Wynne Channing
Genre: Young Adult Paranormal Romance
Publisher: Jet & Jack Press
Format: ebook, 209 pages
Source: Dark Mind Book Tours
Buy it here: Amazon | B&N | Smashwords

An ancient prophecy warns of a girl destined to cause the extinction of the vampire race.

So when 17-year-old Axelia falls into a sacred well filled with blood and emerges a vampire, the immortal empire believes she is this legendary destroyer. Hunted by soldiers and mercenaries, Axelia and her reluctant ally, the vampire bladesmith Lucas, must battle to survive.

How will she convince the empire that she is just an innocent teenager-turned bloodsucker and not a creature of destruction? And if she cannot, can a vampire who is afraid of bugs summon the courage to fight a nation of immortals?

 My Romancing Thoughts:

A thrilling tale of an accidental heroine's journey from teenager to immortal!

Blog Tour: Guest Post with Wynne Channing & Win WHAT KILLS ME

I'd like to welcome author Wynne Channing to Romancing the Darkside! Wynne is on tour promoting her new release What Kills Me, a young adult paranormal romance and is here today to talk about her young but feisty heroine, Axelia. Show Wynne some love and stay tuned for some awesome giveaways!

"Swooning Over a Hot Guy? Nope, Just Faint from Lack of Blood"
By Wynne Channing 

It is my honor to be a guest of Romancing The Darkside! Today, I want to use my time here to celebrate butt-kicking young heroines in young adult paranormal romances — namely, Axelia, the protagonist of What Kills Me.

Axelia, or Zee as everyone calls her, begins her epic journey as a normal 17-year-old girl. She’s sweet, sheltered, and desperate for some excitement in her life. Unfortunately, the excitement that she finds equals a world of death — quite literally.

Heroines are sometimes so idealistic. And as the architect of this world, I love crushing their dreams (whoa, that came out sounding super cruel. But I mean it in the nicest way — I’m just trying to tell you a great story).
