Deep Kiss of Winter - Blog Tour and Contest

Deep Kiss of WinterDeep Kiss of Winter
By Kresley Cole and Gena Showalter
Pocket (November 24, 2009)

From the publisher: Two never-before-published paranormal stories to delight the senses and tantalize the imagination!

KRESLEY COLE delivers a breathtaking tale of a brutal vampire soldier about to know love for the first time...and a Valkyrie aching to be touched. Murdoch Wroth will stop at nothing to claim Daniela the Ice Maiden -- the delicate Valkyrie who makes his heart beat for the first time in three hundred years. Yet the exquisite Danii is part ice fey, and her freezing skin can't be touched by anyone but her own kind without inflicting pain beyond measure. Soon desperate for closeness, in an agony of frustration, Murdoch and Danii will do anything to have each other. Together, can they find the key that will finally allow them to slake the overwhelming desire burning between them?

GENA SHOWALTER puts a daring spin on a tale of huntress and hunted...and concocts a sensual chemistry that is positively explosive. Aleaha Love can be anyone -- literally. With only skin-to-skin contact, she can change her appearance, assume any identity. Her newest identity switch has made her an AIR (alien investigation and removal) agent and sends her on a mission to capture a group of otherworldly warriors. Only she becomes the captured. Breean, a golden-skinned commander known for his iron will who is at once dangerous and soul-shatteringly seductive, threatens her new life. Because for the first time, Aleaha only wants to be herself....

That is a difficult question because there are so many wonderful paranormal authors/books/series out there, both adult and YA. If I had to narrow it down to one, Gena Showalter would be a good choice.

Favorite paranormal romance title is the Dark Highlander. Absolutely love that book! Only book where I read it twice back to back.

My favorite paranormal author? And I only get one? Hmm, since that seems like an impossible mission, I'll name my favorite for the last year- Jeaniene Frost. I just re-read the Night Huntress series and I just love her characters and worldbuilding.

I have to say that I just discovered Chloe Neill and the Chicagoland Vampires- best new series for the year, for sure. I really like the stubborn and sometimes snarky Merit.

jellybelly82158 said...

My favorite author. that is a hard one. I guess I would have to say Christine Feehan. My favorite series is also hard. I love the dark series by Christine but I also love the Rachael Morgan series by Kelley Armstrong. And then there is Lynsay Sands and her Argeneau Vampires. Then you cannot forget Kresley Cole and her Immortals after Dark series/
I just cannot make up my mind

Aimee said...

I'd have to go with Christine Feehan, even though there are so many good authors.


Unknown said...

Christine Feehan is my number one favorite author but JR Wards is coming real close to her. I actually have all of Kresley Coles and Gena Showalters books in my TBR Pile except this book because I think it is a trade? and I only buy mass markets. I need to start reading both of their many series that I own. Maybe I'll start reading after I'm finished with Jade Lees third Dragon book.

Van Pham said...

my favorite paranormal romance writer and series is Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress novels.
