Giveaway with Mary Abshire

Hello vampire fans! I hope you are having a Fang-tastic day!

My name is Mary Abshire and I write paranormal erotic romance and urban fantasy. I have a series that I call the Soul Catcher series. The first book is Claiming the Evil Dead, the second is Catching an Evil Tail, and the third is Fighting Evil. The main character is half-demon and she has a special ability. She can send evil souls to hell. Vampires, demons, werewolves, warlocks, witches are in the series. Because I love vampires, I have one as a main character. His name is Drake. I've heard from readers they love him as he his noble and good. Some readers are torn between him and another character, a demon named Jeremy. The demon is downright troublesome. At times, Jessie is torn between the two. Which will protect her? Which is compassionate and honest? Which one does her soul yearn for?

So if you're interested in a different kind of romance, check out my books. The first chapters are free at and I have other excerpts posted on my website

I'm always glad to hear from readers. Send me e-mail or a friend request on Facebook or Goodreads. I love chatting about books.

Take care and have a Fang-tastic 2011.

Here is the blurb from Claiming the Evil Dead:

Half-demon Jessie Garrett is searching for an evil vampire that's been preying upon children. She wants to claim the rogue vamp's soul and send it to hell. To find the dead man walking she must partner with another bloodsucker, Drake, even though she doesn't trust him. While Jessie works with Drake, she learns not all vampires are killers and discovers the cold-blooded vamp is a temptation too difficult to resist.

After the fiend abducts another child and Jessie has a near fatal experience with vampires, she turns to Jeremy, a demon she bumped into at a club, and makes a deal with him for his help. Drake disapproves, and Jessie soon finds herself wedged between two volatile creatures. When the chance comes to save the child's life and claim the evil vamp's soul, she must decide whom she can trust—a vampire who cools her feverish desires, or a demon hell-bent on seducing her.

Here is the blurb from Catching an Evil Tail:

Half-demon Jessie Garrett wants to live a normal life among her friends and keep her soul catching ability a secret, but supernatural creatures keep popping up in her world. Adding to her struggles, her vampire lover remains out of the country, and when he offers no valuable explanation as to why he hasn't returned, she wonders if she should move on without him.

As if Jessie doesn't have enough worries on her mind, the demon yearning to seduce her shows up at her home. She longs to liberate herself from the debt she owes him, and when he asks for her help, she jumps at the chance to make a new deal with him—one that will guarantee her freedom. The only catch? She has to send the soul of a werewolf to hell.

Love, trust, and loyalty are on the line. Torn between her feelings for her vampire boyfriend, a hot Alpha wolf, and a demon vowing to protect her, Jessie must figure out her heart's true desires.
