Because I'm extra busy this week, I don't have much time to blog, but I'm happy to announce that I've got a contest for a copy of Keri Arthur's soon-to-be-released Bound to Shadows.
Here's a summary of Keri's novel, the eighth in the Riley Jenson Guardian series:
In the darkness, demons come out to play . . . and someone must bring their sins to light.
Part vampire, part werewolf, Riley Jenson knows what can happen when vamps don’t play well with others. But she’s never seen anything like this: a series of brutal murders surrounding the latest hot spot for vampire-human hookups—and the victims aren’t just killed, they’re beheaded. Now Riley is launching into action, toying with a seductive—and highly suspicious—club owner, and finding herself in the middle of another mystery: women being killed one by one, without a trace of violence.
For Riley, solving multiple cases—in a world going mad with human and vampire passions—would have been tough enough. Instead she has two jealous lovers on her hands: Kye Murphy, the amber-eyed werewolf who makes Riley’s wolf blood howl—and Quinn, the cool, elegant vamp who has over a thousand years’ experience at fulfilling women’s desires. While she’s busy juggling these two sexy beasts, Riley’s detective work takes a stunningly violent turn. Finding a murderer is now a matter of life and death. Especially since the killer has long since found her . . .You can read an excerpt of Bound to Shadows here and learn more about Keri Arthur and her novels by visiting her website.
- To enter, just leave a comment mentioning your very favorite series (book, movie, or television). It doesn't have to be paranormal or urban fantasy. Maybe you stayed up late every night because you were hooked on the dramatic-thriller "Gilligan's Island" and needed to see if they ever escaped. (Hmm, is "Lost" an homage to the existential angst of Gilligan?)

- Limited to U.S. and Canada.
- Winner will be chosen at random using my patented Vampire Wire paper-bag-with-numbers randomizer.
