Tour: Christine Wenrick's THE CHARMED TRILOGY (Guest Post/Giveaway)

Today we are happy to be a part of Christine Wenrick's The Charmed Trilogy tour!


The Book Boyfriend

First off let me say thank you for having me here today to talk about my recently completed Charmed Trilogy. And . . . great title for a blog! I can’t think of anything better than escaping to someplace quiet with that perfect glass of Pinot and a sexy, romantic read?


Heaven!!!

It’s romantic and we need it.

So is that why our favorite romance authors have us clicking to buy their next novel faster than we can type in our credit card number? Some might argue that it’s easier to have a book boyfriend (. . . or several) than a real one. Book boyfriends never leave the toilet seat up, or toss their dirty socks everywhere. They always seem to know just the right thing to say, even if it’s something that going to break your heart. And a book boyfriend never cheats on you because he exists solely to make your heart go pitter patter between the pages.

So would they be right then? Are book boyfriends easier?

Maybe. But maybe it goes deeper than that.

Those real moments, the ones where your real boyfriend, husband, partner or significant other completely knocks you off your feet and has you blinking back because he just did or said something so romantic and surprising that you can’t believe it. And it happen so fast that you just wish you could go back and hit replay like your favorite Jensen Ackles shirtless episode of Supernatural. It was so unexpected!

Women need those moments. We live for them. We need romance in our lives. Romance novels can give us that feeling . . . over and over again . . . in a way, tiding us over until our real life hero makes us teary-eyed with their next blow-me-off-my-feet moment.

The romantic hero in my Charmed Trilogy, Caleb Wolfe, is quite a page-turning catch. His heart, his strength, his loyalty to the people he cares most about, even his inner struggles make him feel real and very romantic. So come on ladies, give your man the night off and fall in love with a new hero. He might just turn out to be your next, great book boyfriend.



THE CHARMED
The Charmed Trilogy, Book 1
“This has to be a dream.  This has to be a dream.  This has to be a dream.”
Olivia Ann Greyson sees only one future for herself – to compose and perform the music she has loved since she was a child.  But that future changes in an instant when a commuter train taking her to the city crashes and is attacked by, unbelievably, a coven of vampires!  As the rabid creatures feed their thirst on the surviving passengers, Olivia is spared from an unthinkable fate because of the intervention of another vampire – Caleb Wolfe, a figure from her past who, for reasons he doesn’t understand himself, would do anything to protect her.
After one familiar touch, Olivia recognizes the man behind the vampire.  Soon love and a powerful supernatural connection begins to grow between them.  But with that connection Olivia starts to notice startling changes happening within herself, and violent events make it clear that the vampire coven which wanted her the night of the train crash won’t stop until they have her.
Time is running out for Olivia and Caleb to discover why all this is happening.  And the answers they find may painfully tear their new found love apart.
THE CHARMED will be on sale for ONLY $0.99 from May 13 - 27 on: AmazonSmashwordsBN.com and The iBookstore.


THE CHARMED SOULS
The Charmed Trilogy, Book 2
“It was the blood!  The blood was somehow doing this to me!” 
Olivia Ann Greyson is a Charmer, a Dhampir with the power to lure the supernatural world’s most dangerous of creatures – and she’s in an impossible situation. She must leave behind Caleb Wolfe, the strong, protective vampire she has fallen madly in love with, in order to learn how to protect herself from the vampires, shifters and demons that will be drawn to her for the rest of her life.Human Guardian, Alec Lambert, has been assigned to see to Olivia’s training by the organization he belongs to, which is known simply as The Brethren. He takes Olivia to the group’s stronghold in the mountainous regions of Alberta, Canada, where she discovers the answers to her family’s painful past and the extent to which those hunting her will go to capture her. But she also uncovers many secrets and even more questions about this mysterious group she has trusted to protect her – secrets that will have her fighting to get back to the man she left behind.
. . . but will it be too late?
Available now on AmazonSmashwordsBN.com and The iBookstore.


THE CHARMED FATES
The Charmed Trilogy, Book 3
“You think you know him better than I do?  Interesting . . . and so boringly human.”
Over a year has passed since Olivia Ann Greyson discovered that she is a Charmer, a Dhampir fated to be part of the violent supernatural world that surrounds our human one. In that time, she has strengthened herself physically, learned of her family’s secret past, and found a deep and abiding love with the strongest man she has ever met, Daywalker Caleb Wolfe. But Olivia’s biggest challenge still lies ahead of her . . .
Dark vampire lord Luther Davin has been obsessed with capturing Olivia so he can use her special gifts for his own reasons. As Caleb and Olivia try to make a new life together with their coven, the Nightwalker’s attempts to capture her only intensify and inadvertently bring an unwelcome visitor from Caleb’s past barging back into his life.
She is Caelestis—Celeste to the modern world—and she claims to be Caleb’s first and rightful mate. Although Olivia has grown confident and secure in her relationship with Caleb, she soon realizes that Celeste sees herself as no less than a goddess among mere mortals and will stop at nothing to get Caleb back—which means Olivia herself must die!
When these two threats collide and fate steps in to pull Olivia away from her new family, will she be ready for her darkest hour and her greatest battle?
Available now on AmazonSmashwords
