Shayla Black and Tempt Me With Darkness

I’m so excited to be giving away Shayla Black’s book Tempt Me With Darkness.

This is the first book in the Brethren Series and if you haven’t read them, then you’re in for a treat. A sexy paranormal treat, that is. :)

On Wednesday I’ll have an interview with Shayla.

Here’s the backcover blurb:

He's an immortal knight hungering for satisfaction....
As soon as Marrok sees Olivia Gray's dark windswept hair and burning violet eyes, he's sure they've met in eons past. He's felt her soft gentle curves writhing in pleasure beneath his own hard powerful body...Morganna! For centuries, towering Marrok, once the mightiest of King Arthur's warriors, has endured a terrible curse cast upon him when he spurned the witch.

She's a modern woman about to discover ancient magic....
Olivia shares a mystical — and irresistible — connection with brooding Marrok. Soon after the sexy warrior appears in her erotic dreams, he abducts her, demanding she uncurse him. Their intense passion is more powerful — and intimate — than either of them has ever known. Olivia may be the key to unlocking the diary that will break Morganna's hold on his life. But in the wrong hands, the book also holds the power to destroy all magickind. As they search for answers, a ruthless wizard returned from exile is building an army of evil. When he discovers Marrok and Olivia have the diary, only their love — with the help of a powerful group of magical Brethren — can save them.

I’ll wait go ahead and read it, then come back.

La, la, la, I’m going home to the place where I belong…Oh, you’re back. Don’t pay any attention to red glowing from my face. I always sing while I wait. Yep, singing Daughtry.

Okay, now that you’ve checked out Shayla’s site and read the excerpt I know you’re itching to get your hands on a copy. And really the cover art alone is enough to make you pick up the book.

So, leave your comments today and any other day this week to be entered in the contest. On Saturday I’ll use the trusty number randomizer and someone will win. Could be you.

Oh yeah, and if winning a copy of Tempt Me With Darkness isn't enough, Shayla has a surprise for a couple of people as well.

What? You want to know what it is??? Hmmm...check back this week to find out. I know, that's kinda mean, but really, it's a cool surprise.

WW’s and PD’s,

LKap said...

Dang it I'm never eligible for the really cool surprises **pout**

Okay well I guess I'll just have to settle for reading the ARC of book 2 because I'm spoiled like that...and me luvs Shayla and this series!!!!!!

Judy said...

This sounds like a great series. Excerpt was fantastic and the cover is gorgeous. Can't wait to see what the surprise is.

Liza said...

Another new to me author. Tempt Me With Darkness sounds like a winner. Please enter me in the contest. Can't wait to find out the surprise later this week.

Gail said...

Hi Vicki, no need to blush or be embarrassed your singing wasn’t bad at all. I like Daughtry too:-)
I haven't read Tempt Me with Darkness yet and it sounds like another keeper by Shayla. I do enjoy her books…hot, Hot, HOT!
Can't wait for the interview on Wednesday.

I'm always looking for new series to read, count me in!

Stephanie said...

Daughtry is totally rockable!! Feel free to dance like a crazy woman, I'm sure you'll have plenty of company! And speaking of rockable, that guy is too yummy for words! Definitely need to sneak a peek at this series.

Vicki said...

flchen1 - the cover is enough to tempt you and then you open the page. La Pant. :)

LKap - Yeah, but you do have the ARC so...not feeling sorry for you one bit. LOL, you know I love ya. heehee

Judy - I'm so glad you're here. Yay! And you're entered. Don't forget to check back this week for the surprise and leave more comments. Each comment counts

Liza - Hey girl!! The title is awesome and so is the book. You're going to love it. This is the first in the series and she has several others out and another one that will release soon. And then there is the surprise. :D

Gail - Another Daughtry fan, I do love me some Daughtry. He could be a fine hero in any book. Of course watching him on stage isn't so bad either, but he has a wife so I'll just drool for a minute and then enjoy the music.

tetewa - It's a great series and you'll be hooked from book one.

Stephanie - Yay, another Daughtry fan. WhooHoo for a sexy bald man.
Of course a long ebony haired bare chest man is way yummy too. :)

Brandy W said...

This was a fantastic book. Hey don't enter me in this one I have it in hardback and paperback. I'm not as spoiled as someone else *LKap*.

Vicki said...

Brandy - but you might want to be entered into the surprise. :D

CrystalGB said...

I am definitely tempted. Sounds great. Love the cover.

Brandy W said...

Well then yes on the surprise. I like those as long as it isn't "Hey Mom I accidentally broke the glass in the hutch" type of thing.

Bella said...

Yummilicious! I read both the Wicked Lovers -- to die for and so glad Shayla's starting the series back up!! Haven't read the paranormals though, and clearly I have been missing out!


Vicki said...

crystal - it's the perfect title, don't you think.

Brandy - nope no surprises from the kids

Bella - Welcome to our madness. It's great to have you and we hope you'll be back. You're in for a treat with this series.
