Hi and welcome to the Halloween Seduction Giveaway Hop!! To celebrate Halloween, various blogs are sharing ghost stories, favorite paranormal books, etc. Although I have MANY favorite paranormal authors, I have to give complete credit to Jeaniene Frost and her Night Huntress Series for getting me hooked.
“Halfway To The Grave” was the very first Paranormal book I ever read and it ultimately set me on the path as a loyal reader to all the other amazing Paranormal Romance Authors, such as Lara Adrian, Alexandra Ivy, J.R. Ward, etc.
I wanted to be Cat Crawfield, the gorgeous, red headed half-vampire, who kicks ass and doesn’t bother taking names. Until she meets Bones…
I fell in love with Bones, the wickedly handsome and charming vampire, who shows Cat how to fight and how to love…
What’s that? Did I hear someone say “Trick or Treat?”
Well, I won’t give you tricks, but you might win a treat!! If you read the excerpt from “Halfway To The Grave”, below, pay special attention. The answers to the giveaway questions are in there! Good luck! Hop your way over to the other blogs through the links above. Make sure you say “Trick or Treat!” You might get a treat from one of them as well!!
I splayed my hands across his chest, seeing his eyes widen, and brought him closer until our bodies touched and my breasts rubbed against him. Then I gave a slow twist of my hips against his as I’d seen another dancer do.
His arms tightened around me, yanking me to him until we were molded together. One hand crept up to tug my head back, and I smiled smugly at him.
“You were right, it’s easy. And I’m a fast learner.”
My body was still curled around his, taunting him. This was so unlike me, but something felt as though it had taken over. My earlier concerns were a faint memory not even worth dwelling on. The lights caused deep hollows to form under his cheekbones, making them look even more pronounced. The heat in his eyes should have made me break free and run, but all it did was entice me.
“Playing with fire, Kitten?”
His mouth grazed my cheek as he spoke directly in my ear to be heard above the noise. His lips were cool against my skin, but not cold. My head spun, my senses reeled, and in reply my tongue crept out and licked his neck with a long wet stroke.
The shudder went all through him. Bones pressed me so close that his body ground into mine, jerking my head back with a thick handful of hair until our eyes locked. What had started out as a game was now an open challenge, as well as a direct threat. Any further action would bear results, it was clear from the way his gaze smoldered into mine. All of this should have frightened me, but it was as if my mind were incapable of rational thought. He was a vampire, a hit man, and had almost killed me… and nothing mattered more than the feel of him. I licked my lips and didn’t pull away, and it was all the invitation he needed.
His mouth came down onto mine, slanting across without difficulty, since I moaned at the first touch. It had been so long, so long since I’d kissed someone and not been faking it. The last time had been with Danny, and the scant desire I’d felt then was nothing compared to the searing flash of heat in me now. His tongue caressed my lips briefly before twining around mine and seeking my depths with ruthless sensuality. My heart pounded so fiercely I knew he could feel its pulse in my mouth as I responded, pulling him closer and digging my nails into his back. Bones deepened the kiss further until he sucked on my tongue. Everything inside me began to throb with need. I returned the gesture with more strength, drawing on his tongue with erotic hunger. There was a distinct hardness to him as he rubbed his hips against mine in a wave of friction that caused a near-excruciating clench in my loins.
He only pulled away to snap at someone when we were rudely jostled for no longer dancing, leaving me to gulp in breaths of air. My legs felt almost rubbery and lights danced in my head. Bones propelled me toward the far wall until we were clear of the dance floor, tumbling my hair in my face from the speed of his action. He brushed it back to kiss me again, and this kiss was better than the one before.
