NOCTURNAL BITES Release and Giveaway

Please welcome Lorraine Pearl -- a sexy vampire writer who plays on the dark side. Check out her release information, and check out the giveaway at the end of the post.

I decided to make the first announcement of my upcoming release here. It is an anthology from my Nocturnal Surrender Series called, Nocturnal Bites, and it contains two novelettes, one novella, a short story, and a character interview. Oh, and did I mention the vampires?

This is an erotic paranormal romance series full of sexy vampires that actually bite. I know, just what we need, more vampire books. But I love vampires too much not to write about them. Louisa had asked the question on my blog of what type of vampire I liked, and this was my answer:

“I like my vampires to be fiercely protective of the ones they love–especially the women in their lives–but I still want them to be dangerous. Vampires are killers, even if they have to play it a little safer nowadays to remain hidden. My vampires have to bite, too. I don’t like them watered down, but I don’t want horrific monsters either. There’s nothing romantic about that.”

Now I am posing the same question to you. How do you like your vampires?

About the anthology, Nocturnal Bites:

This anthology contains the first three novelettes/novellas of the series. Each of these books focuses on vampire Bastian Evanko, starting over two hundred years ago in England with Nothing Lasts Forever and the tragic series of events that triggered his desire for retribution and earned him the punishment of two hundred years in exile.

Fast forward to present day Lansford, PA: The Sin City of the East. The remaining stories take place in and around Lansford. Nocturnal Surrender is the reunion of Bastian and his brother Donovan, as well as his meeting, and biting, stripper Darling Nikki. Tension mounts as Bastian looks to exact his revenge, but he gets a little sidetracked by the possibility of falling in love again.

Just when Bastian feels secure in his budding relationship with Nicole French, AKA Darling Nikki, she stumbles upon the secret of his vampiric identity in Midnight Confessions. To make matters worse, Donovan needs Bastian's help in the war with the vampire Hunters. Only problem is, Nicole gets dragged into the mix. Many secrets are exposed after midnight.

In the bonus short story, Auburn Lust, twin courtesan vampires Rochelle and Laureline Montague entertain two of their favorite vampire clients for the evening: Christof Rosenbaum and Donovan Evanko. Emotions and lust run wild in this erotic story.

And in another bonus, Interview with Bastian, the vampire lets it all hang out since this is the uncensored, extended version of his interview. At times he shares a little too much information, but then he does prefer to live by his own rules.

About the series:

Lansford, Pennsylvania is The Sin City of the East. No wonder it’s become a hot spot for vampires. With the sanguinarian nightclub, Nocturnal Surrender, run by one of their own, they can easily sate their hunger without divulging the secret of their existence—and without leaving a trail of dead bodies behind them.

That hasn’t stopped the Hunters from trying to find a way to eradicate these creatures. The game of cat and mouse has gone high-tech, and biochemical warfare is on the horizon. What will happen when the battle between mortals and immortals threatens to expose vampires—to all of humanity—for the murderers they truly are?

In The Nocturnal Surrender Series, not only will the vampires have to deal with the bigger problems of survival and secrecy, but they will also have to navigate the issues in their own lives. Love, hate, and retribution are part of the high stakes game they all play. Life and death situations combine with emotions and lust to fuel the series. Each couple will have their own obstacles to overcome while they are dragged into the larger, millennia-old battle between humans and vampires.

Who will live and who will die? Who will love and who will hate? And how will they put their differences aside to save themselves?

About the author:

I write erotic paranormal romance under the name Lorraine Pearl. I am currently working on The Nocturnal Surrender Series and am developing four other series. My main interest is in writing vampire stories, but I have recently branched out into other paranormal creatures including angels and demons.

I love to read paranormal romance novels, and anything with vampires in it. Vampire movies and TV shows are also favorites of mine. I know most people are tired of vamps already, but I’ve enjoyed them since before they became this popular, and I’m sure I will continue to enjoy them for a long time to come. I only hope others feel the same since I prefer to write vampire stories.

  1. I totally agree with you. Very protective and sexy. :) I love the cover. Thanks!

    1. You're welcome. Thanks for stopping by. Glad you like the cover. When I saw the photos of him, I knew he was my Bastian. Good luck!

  2. Thanks for having me here, Louisa. What about you; how do you like your vampires?

  3. I'm all about Bastian right now! He's my new book boyfriend :)

    1. Hi Danie. Thank you for the wonderful review you wrote. I'm glad you like Bastian so much! Good luck!

  4. Lorraine -- Definitely like them a little dark and sexy. Willing to protect, but not necessary attack innocents.

    1. You might not like my vamps then. They are dark and sexy, they are willing to protect the ones they love--and innocents, most of the time--but if they need to attack an innocent, they will. I guess it's my love of Anne Rice's Lestat that makes it hard for me to keep that out of my vamps.

  5. Thanks for the giveaway! Love the concept behind this book!
