Guest Blog and Giveaway with Ashlynn Monroe

by Ashlynn Monroe

I love vampires! My enjoyment of them actually started with Dracula and reruns of Dark Shadows I watched on the Syfy Channel (it was called the Science Fiction Channel back in the day) the summer I started junior high school. Barnabas Collins had such a sad story, and his longing for the pretty Miss Winters made me sigh. I’ve been writing about vampires since I was in high school, but I never thought that other people would enjoy my vampires and paranormal creations until this year when my writing started finding publishers. It’s been so much fun to share my various twists on the best monster ever with the world. Vampires used to be scary, but now they are pure sex, gotta love that! There are so many new paranormal series to read and to watch. I’m so glad that I’m not the only paranormal junkie looking to be entertained. It used to be hard to find something new and vampire or paranormal, now it’s hard not to.

I have several different vampire shorts out with a novella and novel scheduled for release this quarter. None of my vampire tales are written alike, none of the mythology is a like. I’m so random I don’t even stick to one kind of vampire. Variety is the spice of life and my love of vampires is like my taste in ice cream, I always get the next new flavor. Sure there is always the old favorites, but I happily sample everything vampire that I can get my hands on. There is just something very sexy about the intimacy of the whole bite thing. The act has penetration with the fangs and then the whole blood exchange is symbolic of the human desire for deep real connection with another. Frankenstein’s monster or the mummy just can’t compare. I do think werewolves/shifters are sexy too, but vampires are still my number one favorite!

I hope you’ll take a look at some of my vampires and other characters. I’d love to hear what you think of them.

Larissa is on the verge of complete insanity. She has grown up feeling a connection to the rural woodlands near her home. She has never been able to find what or who has been calling to her.

Dante comes from an ancient line of shifters whose sole purpose is to keep their charges safe from vampires. Dante is Larissa’s Protector. There are only two rules- never talk to your charge and never let them know that you are watching. Dante breaks every rule when it comes to Larissa when they are swept into a torrent of desire that threatens to consume them.

Will the price of breaking the rules to follow their hearts be too great? Hunters lurk in the forest. Vampires are coming. Dante is all that stands between Larissa and the monsters who want to make her one of them.
