Flirting with Fangs
Vampire romance novelist Bailey Hamilton thinks her life is over. Her two-timing husband dumped her, she has a paralyzing case of writers’ block, and her big toe is bleeding.
Torin Kane, fictional Vampire Hero, is miserable. Chapter after chapter he has battled dragons, demons, and despicable villains, but his secret desire is to find true love and a tan.
With a twist of fate, their worlds collide. A magical teardrop summons Torin to life. And Bailey finds herself face to face, with quite literally, the man of her dreams….
What Reviewers Are Saying About Flirting with Fangs:
“Peg Pierson truly brings her hero to life with this fantastically funny vampire tale. I cannot wait to see what this author comes up with next. I’m still holding my sides from laughing so much while reading this story. If the next adventure is only half as funny it will well be worth reading.” ~Night Owl Reviews
“I'm looking forward to reading more of her work. I enjoyed the wild tale of romance, terror, and undying love. She has a very interesting imagination and can summon up horrors Stephen King wouldn't think to put together in one book.”
“Don’t move,” Bailey said with her blow dryer poised over the stranger’s head. “How did you get in here? Huh?” She was wrapped in a towel and wet tresses clung to her flushed cheeks.
The intruder pulled himself to a sitting position. He had the most amazing eyes she’d ever seen. They sparkled like dark jewels, and his long lashes were worthy of a mascara commercial.
“Pardon me, m’lady. I mean you no harm.”
“What the hell are you doing in my bathroom?” Bailey raised the blow dryer higher.
“I beg your forgiveness, but I have no memory of entering this….ah…what did you call this chamber? The bathroom?”
In the back of her mind Bailey wondered why she was kneeling next to a potential criminal instead of dialing 911. But somehow, even though he had scared the bejeezes out of her at first, once she was near him, all fear melted away. Some inner voice convinced her he was not a threat to her safety. Although by the looks of him, he could be a huge threat to her recent celibacy. Whoever this man was, he was drop-dead gorgeous, and Bailey found her thoughts sprinting off into the forgotten erotic section of her cerebrum.
He needed to lose the outfit though. With knee high boots, a ruffled shirt and the long black cape he looked like he just stepped out of a B movie. Or off the cover of a romance novel?
And something about those captivating eyes, and his noble aura, seemed familiar. Very familiar.
Eyeing him suspiciously, Bailey asked, “Who are you?”
“I am Torin Kane, dark warrior of Night Temptations.”
Bailey’s blow dryer clattered to the tile floor. And so did Bailey.
Peg Pierson Movies
We all need some down time during the holidays. My suggestion…A Vampire Movie! Here’s a list of my top ten favorite vampire flicks. Fangs and Kisses, Peg
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dracula_(1979_film) Frank Langela is in my opinion the sexiest Dracula ever. The movie has great tone and watch what he does with his eyes. It’s not special effects, he moves his eyeballs!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shadow_of_the_Vampire This is fun and different. John Malkovich is great.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Interview_with_the_Vampire One if the most beautiful vampire films ever. And Tom Cruise is perfect.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fright_Night I like the re-make too, but this original has a terrific Jerry and Roddy McDowell adds a special likable underdog. Trust me if you like the new one you will love this!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Lost_Boys Funny and scary, yes a bit campy but just wonderful.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buffy_the_Vampire_Slayer_%28film%29 Sorry. I just like it!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/From_Dusk_till_Dawn George Clooney is mouthwatering in this as a super bad boy. Crazy good acting in this off the wall movie.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bram_Stoker%27s_Dracula Gary Oldman gives Dracula the most depth of any movie about the fanged icon.

Lust After Death (Love-Bots, Book 1)
by Daisy Harris
In the Pacific Northwest, where life hurries to keep pace with technology, a re-animated bride named Josie struggles to escape her creator and to find her identity in the half-erased circuitry of her mind and body.
Assassin Bane Connor just wants to get the girl to the Zombie Underground and receive his payoff-a mental reset that will erase his memories as well as his guilt. But an attack by a rival faction derails his rescue, and the wide-eyed female whose circuitry requires a husband tears at his hardened heart and ignites desire like he's never known.
Drizzling rain filled the air as Josie clamored up the trail after Bane. Her feet swam in the rain boots he’d given her and she considered that he hadn’t really thought through this plan very well in not bringing her clothes from Adam’s house.
The path curved up a hill, through tall trees whose branches overlapped and wide-spanning trunks that dropped leaves the size of her head.
He hitched his backpack higher on his shoulders and cinched the waistband tighter on his hips. The move drew her attention to the way the smooth and stretchy material of his trousers hung from his behind. Her fingers tingled to reach out and pinch the bunched muscles of his buttocks.
That brief glimpse of his thoughts echoed in her mind. Clearly he hadn’t meant to do her harm and now that the shock faded, she observed it from a different angle. Josie wondered at the snippet, curious about where it might have led.
She ran her hands through the brush that rose around her. Each branch was filled with droplets. Spikes pricked on some plants, others felt smooth. One felt soft and downy at first, then stung her curious fingers and Josie pulled her hand to her chest. Her legs ached as they summited the hilltop.
Bane led her a small ways down the other side and he pointed to a small clearing. “It won’t be the softest night’s sleep. But I’m so dead on my feet I won’t care.”
Josie cocked her head to the side and noticed the way his body slumped forward and his feet dragged. “This’ll be fine.”
Okay kiddies. This is a hot little number, so all of you under 18 types forget you saw this post, okay?
This book has a whole new look on zombies and the things you can, should and should not do with undead flesh. Just sayin. Josie and Bane are characters you can sympathize with and start to love as you watch them both awaken in different ways.
I can't wait to finish reading the book and find out more about Ms. Harris's unique take on the zombies in this story. Life and death will never be the same again! For depth of characterization, elements of dialog and original story line; this book is a 5/5. (And we aren't even talking about the steamy parts either *wink*)
AUTHOR Bio and Links:
Birkenstock-wearing glamour girl and mother of two by immaculate conception, Daisy Harris still isn't sure if she writes erotica. Her romances start out innocently enough. However, her characters behave like complete sluts. Much to Miss Harris's dismay the sex tends to get completely out of hand.
She writes about fantastical creatures and about young men getting their freak on, and she's never missed an episode of The Walking Dead.
