Share The Love Giveaway!

It's time for my monthly giveaway called Share The Love where I share something I love!

This months book is my newest obsession!  I read this book and cannot stop thinking about it!  This book had it all!  Action, romance, suspense, secrets, and HOT SEX!

This months giveaway is for:


 Chosen By Blood by Virna DePaul!

Five years after the Second Civil War ends, humans and otherborn— humanlike creatures with superhuman DNA—still struggle for peace. To ensure the continued rights of both, the FBI forms a Para-Ops team with a unique set of skills.

Leader of an Otherborn clan, half-breed vampire Knox Devereaux would do anything to find a cure for the anti-vamp vaccine slowly starving his people into extinction. When the FBI contacts him about leading a team of hand-selected Others on a mission to reclaim the stolen antidote, Knox accepts. His new assignment places him in direct contact with Special Agent Felicia Locke, the beautiful human he’s craved since their very first meeting.

I loved this series and can't wait for the future books in this series.  You can read my review here

  1. let's see, newest...Men of Honor series by S.E. Jakes. It is a m/m series, but these alpha males are incredible. They are so emotional and passionate without being all girly . I drop everything to read these. Bound by Honor is the first one and Bound By Law is the next one coming out soon (I got an ARC though;)

  2. What new series have you read recently that you absolutely LOVE?

    Hmmm, there are so many! I really liked Piper's Fury (Passion of the Soul #1) by Rachel Firasek. I also read the Silkie's Call (Sea Lovers #1) by Laura Browning. I'm really diggin' the Witches series by Carolyn Jewel and the Sweet Blood series by Laurie London.

    Good reading ~ Escape by Fiction :)

  3. I recently picked up Kresley Cole's Immortals After Dark series and I've loved it so much I've zipped through through the first 6 books. They're just so much fun!

  4. I think my newest UF/PNR series that I love to pieces is definitely Rhiannon's Law by J.A. Saare! I love Rhiannon's pouty mouth, and I love Disco's mouth, too. :D

    Thanks for the giveaway, Bells!

  5. New to me - the Riley Jenson series by Keri Arthur. I started out not getting the wolf always having sex thing but after book two I got it. Thanks for the giveaway.


  6. The newest series that I'm enjoying this year is The Aisling Grey series by Katie MacAlister, and mostly because I'm listening to it on audiobook and the narrator is so funny. Also loving Red Rock Pass and Southern Arcana series both by Moira Rogers.
