Book Giveaway: Tall, Dark and Fangsome by Michelle Rowen

Here's another book giveaway, courtesy of Anna and Hatchette Book Group!

About the Book, courtesy of the publisher:

Sarah Dearly's vampire life is not all B-positive cocktails. A curse made her a nightwalker, the most vicious vamp there is; the charm she wears to curb her deadly tendencies is losing its juice; and a hunter from hell is turning up the heat. Gideon Chase will kill the ones she loves most if she doesn't obey his orders. That includes breaking up with master vampire Thierry and turning Gideon into an immortal vamp so he can escape a doom of eternal hellfire.

Making things worse are Sarah's growing feelings for Gideon, a bad boy who keeps showing a vulnerable side . . . but is it for real? Will Sarah's dark side take over? Or can she cure herself of the nightwalker curse in time to stop Gideon and finally live happily ever after with Thierry . . . forever?

  1. My hero has the power to go back into time or the power to change into something cool.

  2. Ooh, I'm the first one. I love when that happens (not that it means anything, probably makes my chances worst, because when is '1' ever picked?). Anyway, this sounds really cute, count me it.


  3. I love the TV Series, The Charmed Ones. Each of the three "good" witches has a supernatural power. I really like the one that freezes people in time.


  4. Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, he makes my heart throb!

  5. I like Angel from Buffy..Confident,brooding,good looking,strong.

  6. I am a huge twilight fan and Edward has so many powers. He is super fast, strong, has supersonic hearing and is beyond handsome!

  7. I have to say that one of my favorites is "Angel". David Boreanaz is fine, quite fine. He brought sex appeal and humor to the role, and I watch the show just about every day in syndication! I also loved Vincent from the TV show "Beauty and the Beast". Ron Perlman was awesome! gcwhiskas at aol dot com

  8. Please enter me. Thanks for the chance. My fav heroine with supernaturals powers is psychic Sookie Stackhouse from Charlaine Harris' Southern Vampire Series.

  13. I love Harry Potter. The whole idea of having magical abilities is fascinating to me! I'd also love to borrow that invisibility cloak one day...

    melacan at hotmail dot com

  14. Sabine of the Sorceri, Queen of Illusions in Kresley Cole's Kiss of a Demon King. She can create any illusion!


  15. For TV, I will have to agree with the previous posters -- Angel (Love Him!). For books, I will go with Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse novels.


  16. I used to love watching 'Bewitched' as a kid...Samantha Stevens was magical.

    I don't know why, but I've always loved Superman! Just the idea of a strong, handsome hero with super powers who could also fly to other planets & dimensions seemed awfully cool!

  18. I loved Buffy the Vampire Slayer. She was a real kick-ass heroine. I loved the show before Angel left Sunnydale.

    Bea P

  19. I really like Spike from Buffy.

  20. Acheron from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series is awesome!

  22. I love Batman...he seems such a tortured soul!

    Thanks for the contest!

  23. I'm another Whedonverse (Buffy, Angel, Firefly) fan. Strong female characters who have issues but lean on their constructed family to get through them and find the strength to do what's right because that's what needs to be done.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  24. Right now I am reading Mark of the Demon by Diana Rowland. She is a summoner. Now that would be cool, to be able to call some delectable "other" whenever you wanted

    I'd love to win this one.

  25. I always loved Buffy and all the characters on the show (and now in comic form), but lately I am also loving Anita Blake in Laurell K Hamilton's series.

    Thanks for the chance to win

  26. My favorite is Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse. I really love her interactions with the vampire Eric!

  27. I also have to go with Acheron from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunter series . One powerful God. The other Hunters are just as nice. :)
    Carol L.

  28. I like Michelle Rowen's Thierry. He has vampire powers and is handsome. :)

  29. I guess Superman would be my favourite character.

  30. Not exactly a 'hero' but I've always liked Barabas Collins...the vampire character in the old soap series "Dark Shadows"....I thought he was way cool.

    I always enjoyed Michelle Rowen's works and look forward to her lastest. Working in a public library I don't get paid enough and we don't always carry all the wonderful authors I like to read and I will have to wait 6 months to get it from another library if it is a new book --- ugh!
    So, I dedcided to try and win what I want to read.

  32. My heroin is Mac from the Fever series by Karen Marie Moning. She kicks ass!

  33. Favorite hero: Gotta be Harry Dresden from Jim Butcher's Dresden Files series. Think Gandalf, way only younger and waaay more reckless. Magic, zombies, vamps, etc. Luv it!



  34. Have got to go with Edward from Twilight, in celebration that Nov 20th is geting closer. lol

  35. I always loved Superman! And, I enjoyed watching Samantha on Bewitched TV series. I always wanted to be able to clean house like she did.


  36. Wonder Woman !!

  37. I am going to say that my heroine would have the power of sexiness and the ability to get my back in any situation


  38. I would have to say Jacob from the Twilight Series. Thanks for this giveaway. This looks interesting.


  39. I'm going to have to go with Eric from the true blood series--he can fly and has super strength and speed.


  40. My favorite power would be to be able to read someone's mind at will or be like I dream of Jeannie!

    dcf_beth at verizon dot net

  41. My favorite is Harry Potter - I'd love to be able to do some of the magic things he can do!

    Thanks ~ megalon22{at}yahoo{dot}com

  42. My hero would be strong, able to fly, sexy (of course!!), able to grant wishes, turn invisible. Basically all of the super heroes combined.
