Giveaway (US/Int): Rachel Carrington on how to land your very own vampire!

by davincikittieAugust 24, 2012

Please help me welcome author Rachel Carrington to GraveTells today!

Okay, I admit it. As a writer and reader of paranormal romance, I have an unshakeable love for all things vampire. And after watching television shows like Angel, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Moonlight, I want my own vampire. Now, granted, I don’t want one that’s going to want to slurp my blood for a noon snack. Well, maybe he’ll want it, but he’ll have the control not to take it.

At any rate, since I’m guest posting her today at Grave Tells, I thought I’d share with you readers some of the ways my characters have found their very own vampire. Maybe you can use some of the tips and snag your own Angel, Spike, Mick, Edward, Bill, and the list goes on.

In Vampire Cursed, Abby desperately wants to interview a reclusive Duke for her newspaper. It’s a top assignment, one every reporter wants, and she gets the task. No one has interviewed this guy for years. That should have been Abby’s first clue. And when she stepped foot inside the Duke of Lehr’s castle and felt like she’d just fallen through a time capsule into the 18th century, that was another red flag.

In Vampire Forgotten, Mischa is actually on the hunt for a vampire who she believes can help her find her sister. Of course, she’s prepared herself first by taking an online course in how to kill vampires. But there was something about Rhad’s eyes that made her forget all about killing him.

In Vampire Betrayed, Ariana thinks she’s falling in love with a normal man if you don’t take into account his late night disappearances, his avoidance of the sun, and his unusual amount of stamina. But when you’re falling in love, you don’t really focus on the little details, do you?

I don’t think either one of these ways are going to work for me personally. First, I’m not a reporter. Second, no way am I going looking for a vampire without knowing he was going to be a nice one first, and third, well, I haven’t even found a nice normal man who doesn’t have all the other issues! But…I am keeping my eyes open because if any way is going to work, the third one is my best shot.

What about you? How do you think you could meet a vampire? And if you could, would you?

Forgotten in the mountains of Romania. Forced to live a life he didn’t choose. Suffering the daily pain of loneliness. Spending an eternity without the touch of a woman’s hand. 

Though damned as a vampire, Rhad Valentine has been given what some might call the gift of psychic sight. He sees it as a constant reminder of real life going on without him—a life he cannot live.

Mischa Bonovich is on a desperate mission to find her missing sister, Rianna. Led to the mountains of her homeland by the faint call of Rianna’s voice, Mischa needs Rhad’s gift and his strength.

Wild hunger, both foreign and welcome, drives Rhad to his knees. He’d never held a woman so soft. Kissed one so responsive. And in spite of his inner protests, he’ll do anything to help her. Anything to feel just one more touch of her hand.

In the dark forests of Romania, Rhad’s desire won’t be quenched until he tastes what only Mischa can offer, but first, he must save her from a man who has nothing to lose. A man who holds a deadly secret that could tear Mischa from Rhad’s arms before love can happen.

    Hmmm, I’m not so sure I want to meet a vampire, nice or not. There are certain problems inherent with vampires, and I don’t really think I’m capable of handling them. First, I’m slightly anemic which means no feeding off of me, but I’m also kinda jealous, which means no feeding off of others. Second, I’m a day person, he would be a night person. Not gonna work too well there either. We’d both get lonely. I know there are others too.

    I’m not sure how to answer that, but I’m sure I would do almost anything to meet my very own vampire:)

    As you can see by my email addy, I love vampires. So I would love to have my own vampire, though I wouldn’t want to run into a evil vampire. I’m not sure if I like to go search one out either.

    I think it would be cool to meet a vampire! As far as what I would do to meet him, I guess I would search the online chats at night for others who claim insomnia! lol

    I definitely would not intentionally set out to find a vampire. I do love old places and things though so it would be my luck to come across something old and alive in one of those places. Hehe!

    The series sounds really good. Thanks for sharing!

    I don’t think I’d go out of my way to meet a vampire. They’re great to read about but they kind of scare me too.

    My vampire is the one in my dreams. I’ve love him from
    day one. Will forever.

    Well thats kinda tough. It depends is he a good vampire or bad? I would probably just ask him about all the places he/she has seen and experienced. Thanks! 🙂

    August 24, 2012 at 8:34 pm

    I’d like to meet a vamp, but I’m not sure I’d be bold enought to do something about it. And of course it has to be a “good” vamp

    This is a difficult question because yes, I do want to meet a vampire..but only if he’s a good vampire. I don’t want to attract an evil vampire. But if I could meet a nice vampire, I would definitely try to attract one. I would offer some blood in payment as long as I’m not mesmerized or have any kind of spells on me that leave a way for said vampire to track me down later or have any control over me.

    I love reading about vampires–wicked, good or just wickedly good. lol I’m not sure I want to meet a real one. I would need reassurances that I would walk away from the meeting still human. 🙂
