Today we have a special guest in the house! We're rocking All Hallows Eve with style and welcoming paranormal romance author Gabrielle Bisset in celebration of her month long Paranormal Fall Fling! I love her SONS of Navarus series and I definitely can't get enough of her sexy-as-sin vampire heroes which she's talking about today ;). Grab a comfy seat and jump in to find out for yourself or continue the fun if you've followed Ms. Bisset's Fall Fling already.
Thanks to Talina for having me here on the last day of the Paranormal Fall Fling to celebrate the release of the third book in the Sons of Navarus series, Blood Spirit! All month the Blood Spirit/Sons of Navarus Paranormal Fall Fling giveaway had weekly prizes and today is the last day to enter for grand prizes of gift cards and cool Sons of Navarus swag. Be sure to keep reading after the post for details on how to enter for the grand prizes to be given away tomorrow, November 1!
Since it's Halloween, it seems only fitting to talk about the vamps in my Sons of Navarus series. Eight vampire warriors, they're responsible for making sure the Archons, the law and order vamps, don't take over their world as was prophesied in ancient times. The Archons have waited a long time for this to come, but they believe now the prophecy is about to come true.
When I made the decision to write a vampire series, I wanted to write a big story. I like series that allow me to pick and choose which books I read out of them, but for me, the series that move the story from one book to the other are the most fun. I get wrapped up in the story from the beginning and feel like I get to know the characters well throughout the books. And when the end comes, I feel like I've really been a part of something for a long time. I think readers will feel that way by the end of the Sons series too.
Writing the Sons is really a labor of love. Each book has a different tone and vibe to it because each Son is different. Readers who've read Blood Avenged and Blood Betrayed will notice instantly that this third book is very different, just as Saint's story was very different from Vasilije's. Part of what makes each story unique is the way I choose to tell it. Vasilije's story is full of sensuality, whereas Saint's is full of aggression. Both stories are very much told in a tone that matches the hero. Now Terek's story is very mystical and spiritual feeling because that fits him to a T.
I hope you'll check out all the Sons and see for yourself how wonderfully different each hero is. There's a hero for every type of woman and every type of reader.
Back of the Book:
I am everything you seek. I am vampire.
Blessed with the gift of telepathy, Terek always knows what a woman wants. His gift has afforded him nightly sensual pleasures and exotic treats for centuries, but beneath the surface he yearns for much more.Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can't find the balance between heart and mind.

Here's a taste of Terek, the newest Son to get his story in Blood Spirit:
Ilona sighed. "Terek, I don't seem to be like any of your other vampires."
She was right.
"I have thousands of vampires, Ilona. You've just seen the ones who live here."
"Are they all women?"
Shaking his head, he laughed. "No. Not all of them. Does that matter?"
He saw it did matter by the way her bottom lip quivered ever so slightly. "Ilona, what's wrong?"
She closed her eyes and turned away so he couldn't see her face. "I've never been like this. I don't know what's wrong with me. I barely know you and my head tells me I have every reason to hate you. I know this. But I'm consumed by jealousy at the thought of you with these women and thousands I haven't even met."
Terek stared silently at her, unsure of what to say. It was perfectly natural she would be attracted to him. Vampires were sensual beings, and the pull of a sire to a vampire was common. Everything she was experiencing was exactly as it should be.
Before he could tell her this, she turned toward him. "I don't want to feel this way toward someone who doesn't feel anything for me."
The shame in her voice bothered him. Why did she think he felt nothing for her?
"I care about you as I care for all my vampires."
That wasn't exactly the truth. In fact, he cared much more for her after only such a short time.
"Chattel. Or worse, as a plaything. Somehow you've made me care for you, and I'm simply the latest addition to your collection."
"Ilona, you're not a plaything or part of a collection. I didn't choose to sire you. You were dying because of another vampire's choice and begged me to save you."
"Even worse then. I'm a mistake you're saddled with."
Terek winced at the pain of her words. Mistake. She believed she was unwanted and unloved. She had no idea the effect she had on him and how much he struggled against the growing feelings for her inside him.
He let his desire control him and leaned toward her, taking her in his arms. A need to feel her mouth yielding to his overtook him, and he kissed her hard, needing her to understand how much he wanted her.
But she didn't yield. Instead, she met his desire with her own, snaking her tongue past his lips to tease the tip of his tongue. Such a common act he'd experienced countless times before with women now excited him more than he could believe, and his cock sprang to life, pressing hard against his hipbone.
She tasted like some exotic fruit Jasmine seldom found at the market—a treat he rarely got to enjoy but relished so much more when he could. She clung to him by the neck as she pressed her body to his, leaving him in no doubt as to what she wanted.
He wanted it too.
"Ilona..." He stopped, unsure what he'd wanted to say as she slid her hand down the front of his pants.
Looking at him, her eyes wide, she said, "No, don't say anything. I need this. I don't want to think about who you are with the others. Even if you have to pretend, then pretend. Just let me have something about being a vampire that brings me happiness."
Her hand felt like silk as she slid it up and down his stiff cock, grazing the tip just enough to make his hips come up off the bed. His mind was nowhere else but right there with her.
Groaning his desire for more, he tugged a fistful of hair, pulling her head so she looked into his eyes. "No pretending."
