Blood Eternal Tour Launch and Giveaway

Party Time for BLOOD ETERNAL!

One week until the release of BLOOD ETERNAL, and I am ready to celebrate! Not just because it’s a new release, but because it’s the culmination of a trilogy (Awakened by Blood) of which I’m very proud and which I had such a lot of fun writing! And somehow, embarking on a Bewitching Book Tour with it, courtesy of the wonderful Roxanne, makes it all one heck of a party :-).

So what’s the trilogy all about? It’s a vampire romance/urban fantasy series following the surely doomed love of academic researcher Elizabeth Silk for the Ancient vampire Saloman, whom she accidentally awakened in BLOOD ON SILK. Bestselling author Michele Bardsley said of this opening book:

"BLOOD ON SILK is sensual and thrilling, a wonderful combination of vampire myths old and new. Saloman and Elizabeth's relationship is both amazingly hot and terrifyingly complicated. Readers will fall instantly in love with the world that Marie Treanor has created. You cannot miss this novel!"

Saloman is a dark, dangerous vampire, the strongest who ever existed, and he’s determined to take his revenge on those who staked him three hundred years ago, and to achieve his ambition of ruling both vampire and human worlds. To reach his full power, he needs to kill his Awakener, Elizabeth, who is torn between her growing feelings for Saloman and her loyalty to her friends the vampire hunters who believe Saloman and all his kind should be eradicated.

Somehow, by the start of BLOOD ETERNAL, Elizabeth and Saloman are not only still alive, but in an acknowledged if troubled relationship, even though they frequently fight on different sides. The awakening of an old, if beloved enemy threatens everything Saloman’s worked for, including his relationship with Elizabeth. While Elizabeth herself has to confront illness, prophesy and the profound temptation of BLOOD ETERNAL…

Come on, give in! You know you want to! Celebrate my new release with me on my Bewitching Book Tour!

Blood Eternal
By Marie Treanor

Awakened by Blood, Book 3

Signet Eclipse
Mass Market Paperback
4th October 2011

Secrets don't disappear after seduction...

Elizabeth Silk is struggling to reconcile her passion for the vampire overlord Saloman and her allegiance to the vampire hunters. When a shocking vampire revolt calls Saloman away from her, she refuses to follow him.

To make matters worse, Saloman’s beloved cousin Luk has been found and awakened by one of his greatest enemies. Frenzied with bloodlust, Luk embarks on a killing spree and prepares to expose Saloman’s biggest vulnerability: Elizabeth.

But under Saloman’s regime, vampires have become less concerned with secrecy, no longer willing to hide their power. Rumors are swirling about attacks on humans. After Saloman joins forces with the vampire hunters to consolidate his power, Elizabeth begins to understand her role in the inevitable collision of the two worlds. She could bring resolution between vampires and humans—if she can manage to stay alive long enough to play both sides….

Blood Sin

Awakened by Blood, Book 2

Even if you walk in the light, you can dwell in the dark.

Months after her dangerous encounter with vampire overlord Saloman, Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is still trying to cope with both the demands of her ancestral bloodline—which marks her as a vampire hunter — and the overpowering desire she feels for the immortal she brought back from the grave. But she is not alone in her fascination with Saloman.

When Elizabeth tracks down a distant cousin from America, she learns he possesses an antique sword that has caught the interest of the Grand Master of the American hunters. It is the ancient and mystical sword of Saloman — a treasure of vast occult powers and a prize beyond measure to both vampires and humans. Now the race is on for possession of the sword.

Even as her enemies and allies shift their allegiances and battle for supremacy, Elizabeth must decide which will rule her own perilous fate: unwanted loyalty or unholy love.

Blood on Silk
Awakened by Blood, Book 1

The debut of a seductive new series of vampires, lust, and revenge.

Scottish academic Elizabeth Silk is spending the summer in Romania researching historical superstitions for her PhD. While she is tracing local folktales, one subject in particular sparks her imagination. His name is Saloman, legend's most powerful vampire, a seductive prince staked centuries ago. Now, in the ruins of a castle crypt, Elizabeth discovers the legends are real. Her blood has awakened him. Her innocence has aroused him. But Elizabeth unleashes more than Saloman's hunger.

An army of vampire hunters has amassed to send Saloman back to hell. Sworn to help - yet fearing Saloman's deadly blood lust - Elizabeth seeks to entrap him, offering her body as bait. But something stronger than dread, more powerful than revenge, is uniting Elizabeth to her prey. Caught between desire and rage, Elizabeth must decide where her loyalties lie...and what the limits are to a yearning she can no longer control.

Author Bio:

Marie Treanor lives in Scotland with her eccentric husband and three much-too-smart children. Having grown bored with city life, she resides these days in a picturesque village by the sea where she is lucky enough to enjoy herself avoiding housework and writing sensual stories of paranormal romance and fantasy.

Marie Treanor has published more than twenty ebooks with small presses, (Samhain Publishing, Ellora’s Cave, Changeling Press and The Wild Rose Press), including a former Kindle bestseller, Killing Joe. Blood on Silk: an Awakened by Blood novel, was her New York debut with NAL.

In the Awakened by Blood series, Marie is delighted to be able to bring together her long-standing loves of vampire stories and Gothic romance.

Morning all! Being in the UK, I'm afraid I slept while you partied :).

Hello Jen! Nice to see you here! I think I agree with you about the covers, but apparently the style of the first two wouldn't have worked for the mass market edition of the third. I'm no expert in such matters - just pelased to have another lovely cover, however different :).

Thank you, Barabara, what a lovely thing to say!
