Tour: Caressed by Moonlight by Amanda J. Greene (Guest Post & Giveaway)

What better way to continue a Monday then with a book tour & giveaway?!?! Please welcome author Amanda J. Greene who is joining us with her novel, Caressed by Moonlight!


Hello everyone,
I am really happy that I may do a guest post for this blog. I am here to discuss my current release, Caressed by Moonlight, the first within the Rulers of Darkness series.
Caressed by Moonlight is a combination of my favorite romance sub genres, historical and paranormal. This love story takes place in early 1800s London, where a vampire king, Dorian Vlakhos, is waiting for his enemies to arrive. Dorian has left his homeland to draw the murderous witches, who are slaughtering is people, away and he is using himself as bait.
            Victoria Kingston is not like the other young ladies prowling the market for a husband. She is fiery and determined to save her little sister from their vile aunt. Victoria is faced with an extremely difficult problem, she must marry within the month or forfeit her rights as guardian to her sister. But, when she meets Dorian, her resolve to find Mr. Right is shaken and soon she is swept up in Dorian’s seduction.
            All it takes is one simple kiss for two worlds to collide. Victoria is whisked away into the darkness of Dorian’s world while Dorian tries desperately to protect her. Excerpt:


            Dorian turned. There was no fear, no rage, no concern of any kind in his eyes or on his face, and for a moment, Victoria thought he would turn back and continue with his work, allowing her attacker to carry her away.
“I have no quarrel with you, sir, but if you don’t release her, I will be forced to kill you,” his voice was cold and stern, like a headstone.
“Why don’t you come down here and say that, leech?” the man challenged, tightening his grip on Victoria’s waist, pinning her hard against him. She tried to wiggle free but the man’s hold on her was impossible to break.
“We have your lovely woman, Vlakhos,” Wright taunted, stepping from the shadows.
“You were warned to stay away from her,” Dorian said tiredly shaking his head. “Do you ever listen?”
            In a breath, Victoria’s attacker’s hands slipped from her mouth and waist, releasing her. She jumped aside and gasped, staring wide-eyed at her would-be abductor, a dagger protruding from the center of his forehead. Had Dorian thrown it? She had not seen him move. She looked up at him. He stood on the deck, his face cold as stone…

            I wish you all happy reading! And thank you for welcoming me on your site.

What a great genre mash up!! Sometimes I have to juggle my TBR list between historicals and my paranormals. It's nice to get them in one book.
