I’m so happy to be featuring my good friend and fellow Kensington author Sharon Page on the blog today. Sharon writes really good, really steamy paranormal and historical romance. She’s won numerous awards for both sensual historical and erotic romance, and she’s a USA Today bestseller. And if you love sexy vampires, Sharon is the gal for you! She has a new book out called Blood Curse, and it sounds awesome.
Here’s the blurb:
Lady Ophelia Black lives a cursed life. Unable to touch a person without killing them, she has never felt a lover’s caress or a tender kiss. After years of hiding, she finally escapes only to be kidnapped and held prisoner by the enigmatic Mr. Ravenhunt…
Once the Marquis of Ravenhunt, Raven is now a vampire. With his sister’s life in peril unless he can capture Ophelia’s mysterious power, he embarks on a course of sensual seduction to achieve his goal. Yet as he enjoys watching Ophelia slowly succumb to the blissful sensations of carnal pleasure, Raven knows that every time he touches her his own demise grows ever closer…
And here’s Sharon’s take on the book:
Setting an erotic romance series—with vampires—in Regency England has been a lot of fun. I’ve loved writing the lush settings and elegantly sensual gentlemen! Blood Curse is a special book for me, as I wanted to explore a heroine who has been isolated by a curse that she can’t control. I desperately wanted to have Ophelia get her happily ever after. And Raven is a deeply tortured hero.
Nothing like a tortured, sexy romance hero, IMHO! Here’s a short and tantalizing excerpt from Blood Curse:
“Why do you want my power, Ravenhunt? Is it because you are an assassin?”
“I don’t want to use it, love. It is my plan to destroy the power so no one can use it. Only I can do that, and I have to take it from you to do it.”
Ophelia took another sip of the wine. It was dry and tart and delectable. His words did make sense. She could be free of the power. And it would never hurt anyone else.
He lifted her hand to his lips as she drank a little more of the tempting wine. He brushed her fingers with a gentle kiss, then turned her hand and gave a long, lingering kiss in her palm.
Tendrils of smoke rose, and she snatched her hand back.
For my readers today, Sharon is giving away two books! One winner will receive Blood Curse, and the other will receive the previous book in her series, Blood Fire. Both books are beautiful, trade paperback editions. To win, just tell us about your favorite paranormal heroes and books–do vamps turn your crank, or how about some angels and shapeshifters?
