Forever's Paranormal Romance Tour with Stella Cameron and Cynthia Garner (Q&A/Giveaway)

Today I would like to welcome two paranormal romance authors over for Forever Romance's blog tour, Stella Cameron and Cynthia Garner!

Hi Stella, thanks so much for joining us today! I absolutely adore the cover for Darkness Bound! 

Hi, glad to be with you and that you like the great cover for DARKNESS BOUND.
Comment:  That is, bar none, the best blogsite title I've seen!

Thank you! 
Can you please share with us a favorite sentence or scene from your new release, DARKNESS BOUND?

The end of Chapter 25 when heroine Leigh Kelly first sees hero, Niles Latimer, as fully werehound for the first time.

What are werehounds and how are they different from other shifters found in the paranormal genre?

Werehounds resemble very large Irish Wolf Hounds (the Irish Wolf Hound is the largest breed of domestic dog).  Unlike the werewolf, werehounds have not accepted their partial separation from humankind.  They long for human acceptance.  They use violence only when there is no other way out of a desperate situation.

What three words would you use to describe Leigh?  How about Niles?

Leigh:  determined, brave, passionate.  Niles: tough, loyal, passionate.

After her husband's tragic death, Leigh Kelly arrives on Whidbey Island determined to start over. Yet the tiny town of Chimney Rock is not as peaceful as it seems. Women have been disappearing, and Leigh can't shake the feeling that she's being watched . . . especially at night. Soon, she's experiencing visions she can't explain and fighting her attraction to a handsome stranger who seems to know her most intimate desires.
As the leader of the Team, a pack of werehounds forced to hide their very existence, former special ops soldier Niles Latimer is desperate to prove a man's heart beats beneath his predator's body. And Leigh-the mysterious beauty possessing powers she doesn't yet understand-may be the one woman who can help him. But Niles isn't the only one who recognizes Leigh's true identity. Something evil is waiting in the woods-and the hunt has begun . . .

Welcome Cynthia, thank you for taking the time to stop by for a short Q&A!
Please describe your recent release, KISS OF THE VAMPIRE, in a tweet. (140 characters or less)

With the help of a feisty half demon investigator, a vampire tracks the culprit killing other vamps and along the way discovers love.

How are your vampires in KISS OF THE VAMPIRE different from other vampires found in the paranormal genre?

My vampires become vampires by being taken over by entities from another dimension. Holding somewhat true to our myths, these entities can only take over dying or newly dead people. Until they become acclimated to our yellow sun they can’t be out in the daylight without major consequences, but after 25 years or so they can move about in the sunlight, though their eyes are still quite sensitive to bright light.

What makes Tobias & Nix perfect for each other, and what do you think readers will relate to most in their relationship?

I think they understand each other. They understand what drives the other, though they’re not always happy with those motivations. I hope readers will relate to the idea that everyone deserves a second chance, especially with love.

Once a generation, the rift between the paranormal world and the human world opens, allowing supernatural entities to cross. Vampire, demon, or shapeshifter, they can save the world-or send it spiraling into chaos. Half-demon, half-human, Nix de la Fuente is accepted by neither and mistrusted by both. Determined to prove she's more human than not, she devotes herself to solving crimes between the world's mortals and its most unsavory undead. But her latest case brings her face to face with the one vampire she could never resist . . . 
Called in to investigate a string of violent murders, special agent Tobias Caine isn't interested in rekindling his relationship with Nix. Yet one look and the vampire knows his need for her is as strong as ever. Once, their all-consuming passion nearly cost Nix her fragile hold on her humanity. Now, as their hunger for one another intensifies, exposing them to an unimaginable danger, it could cost them both their lives.
