***ETA: All copies have been claimed and winners have been notified! Thanks ladies!

I have another giveaway courtesy of TellHarlequin! This time around they’ve sent me several copies of MARRIED BY MISTAKE by Abby Gaines. If you’d like to win a copy, just email me at mad @ romancereaderatheart.com (without the spaces) with MARRIED BY MISTAKE in the subject line. I’ve only got five copies to giveaway (was supposed to be four but since I’ve already read this one, I’m giving away my copy too), so it’ll be first come, first serve. Or to be precise, first five to email will get a copy. 🙂


Do not adjust your set. That really was Casey Greene being jilted by her fiancĂ© on live TV! And that really was Memphis’s most eligible bachelor who stepped in to marry her instead.

Millionaire businessman Adam Carmichael wanted only to help Casey save face. He isn’t prepared for the news that their “fake” wedding is legal and binding.

While they secretly wait for an annulment, media and family scrutiny forces them to put on their best loving-couple act. Except by now, neither one is quite sure who’s acting….

Forbidden Temptations…

Serena Kelley is an archaeologist and treasure hunter—and a woman with a secret. Since she was seven, she’s been the keeper of a powerful charm that grants her health and immortality . . . as long as she stays a virgin. But Serena isn’t all that innocent. And when a dangerously handsome stranger brings her to the brink of ecstasy, she wonders if she’s finally met the one man she cannot resist.

Fatal Desires…

Wraith is a Seminus demon with a death wish. But when an old enemy poisons him, he must find Serena and persuade her to give him the only known antidote in the universe—her charm. Yet, as she begins to surrender to his seductions, and Wraith senses the cure is within his grasp, he realizes a horrible truth: he’s falling for the woman whose life he must take in order to save his own.

Thank you so much for inviting me to talk about my new release, Passion Unleashed!

For those who aren’t familiar with the Demonica world, Passion Unleashed is the third in a series of books that are set in and around an underworld hospital run by vampires, demons, and werewolves. It’s sort of, Buffy The Vampire Slayer meets E.R. *g*

In Passion Unleashed, bad boy vampire demon, Wraith, is in a lot of trouble. He managed to get himself poisoned, and the only cure in the universe is a woman named Serena Kelley, who holds the antidote – in the form of her virginity. Let’s just say that she’s not giving that up for just anyone.

But Wraith isn’t just anyone. He’s an incubus, a demon made for sex…a male no female can resist.


So…he’s a demon, but how is he also a vampire? That’s a long story that is revealed over the course of the books, but I can tell you WHY I did that to him.

See, when I originally came up with the concept of the underworld hospital, I decided that I wanted demons to be the main characters/heroes. I adore vampires, but they are so popular, have been done over and over, and have been done extremely well. I wanted something different, something I could make my own.

So…demon doctors!

But I still love those vamps. Clearly, I needed to get my vampire fix and make one of my guys a vampire. That guy is Wraith. He totally loves the demon side of himself, but he detests the vampire side. Oh, he doesn’t mind the hunting and the feeding, but he despises other vampires, wants nothing to do with them, and would rather kill one than look at it.

Yup, good times with the vampires! : )

So what about you? What beings in the paranormal world are your favorites? Are you partial to shapeshifters? Demons? Vampires? Then there are angels and witches and faeries. Lots to choose from!

Tell me, and you’ll be eligible to win a signed copy of the first book in the Demonica series, Pleasure Unbound, plus a demon duckie!

Thanks for visiting!
