Blog Tour: :Vampire Collection: Brink of Eternity/Embrace the Dark" by Caris Roane

Two vampire novellas from two very different series, in the same ebook called:  THE VAMPIRE COLLECTION. 
The first novella, BRINK OF ETERNITY, belongs to the Guardians of Ascension series featuring winged vampires in a world of ascending dimensional earths.  The second novella, EMBRACE THE DARK, is the first story in my Blood Rose series.  Both novellas explore the sexy mystique of the warrior vampire, each over-burdened by the responsibilities of his job and in need of the love of a good woman.

* * *   * * *   * * *

Discover powerful winged vampire warriors, the Guardians of Ascension, and the women they’re sworn to protect! 

Warrior Gideon swore he would never see Elise Jordan again even though they’d been passionate lovers for two years.  Her human nature couldn’t survive in his ascended vampire world; she would be vulnerable to attack on every front if he tried to continue a relationship with her.  But when Elise starts having visions of the future of Gideon’s sister hunted by death vampires, Gideon can no longer ignore that Elise is in her Call to Ascension, her call to become a vampire.  Though determined to keep her at bay, the infamous breh-hedden, an all-consuming vampire bonding ritual, wraps him up tight and demands that he protect Elise.  As he strives to keep her alive during her Rite of Ascension, love threatens to overwhelm his carefully ordered, war-weary world.

* * *   * * *   * * *

Enter a world of blood-starved mastyr vampires and the rare women who can satisfy their deepest needs…
Gerrod, mastyr vampire of the Merhaine Realm, never thought to have his blood-needs satisfied by a mere human.  But Abigail of Arizona is no ordinary woman.  She stuns him with her telepathy as well as the richness of her blood.  However, her human DNA makes her an unacceptable mate.  Yet how can Gerrod turn her away when she alone has satisfied his blood-starvation for the first time in a hundred-and-fifty-years?
When the dreaded enemy of all realm-folk, the Invictus, attacks at a fae wedding, Abigail’s simple human life gets turned upside down.  She doesn’t know if she has the courage to pursue a path that means giving herself body and soul to a mastyr vampire.  Will she return to her normal existence in Flagstaff, Arizona?  Or will she embrace the dark…

My Review of Brink of Eternity
As far as vampire romances go, this is a new favorite series for me! I've just recently started reading these books but I've become addicted in no time. Once I started that first book I just could not stop reading them! There's just something about a hunky vampire warrior with wings that captures my attention!!!

Caris' World of Ascension is a fascinating new take on vampires for me! It's hard these days to find something new and fresh and this series is both of those for me. This being a novella the story was pretty short and there was a lot that happened in such a short time that it might not be too believable to some but for me there was the perfect amount of information, action and romance to keep me happy and entertained! She explains things pretty well, what with the complicated different world and the Call to Ascension, that I don't think you really need to read the other books but I would recommend you read them anyways, just because they are really good. :)

I absolutely love the characters, especially Endelle! She is a hoot! She's always saying things that make me laugh out loud and making my husband think I'm crazy! LOL The mixture of seriousness and humor is a great thing, it really takes the heat off those intense moments and this book had a few of those! Gideon and Elise steamed up the pages pretty good too, so that break for some sexy love scenes was nice too! And can I just say, I wish I could fold my clothes on and off at will! That's a pretty cool power to have and darn convenient!!!

All in all I really enjoyed this read! It has the perfect mixture of action and romance, humor and seriousness and it's a very different and interesting take on vampires that all of you vampire lovers out there don't want to miss! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good paranormal romance!!!

I was ten when I first watched an old movie version of PRIDE AND PREJUDICE and loved it!  Movies led to books, which led to writing and after a good long while, publishing.  I wrote sweet Regency romance for Kensington for 19 years and recently fell in love with paranormal, although I’ve always had a thing for vampires.  I currently write paranormal romance for St. Martin’s Press but I self-publish as well.  Building an online platform has been an enormous but rewarding challenge.  I think all the changes in publishing will alter how authors approach the business going forward and I for one am thrilled to have so many options. 
Caris Roane has published over fifty Regency romance novels and novellas under the pen name, Valerie King.  In 2005, Romantic Times gave her a Career Achievement award in Regency Romance.  Having had a long-time love affair with vampires, Caris tackled the paranormal genre and built a unique vampire world based on ascending dimensional earths.  Her series is called Guardians of Ascension
Her most recent self-published project, The Blood Rose Novella Series, launched in May of 2012 with the first title:  Embrace the Dark. 
Currently, Caris is working on a new vampire series set to launch in the Fall of 2013:   WARRIORS IN CHAINS with the first novel, BORN IN CHAINS.
Caris lives in Phoenix, Arizona, with her two cats, Sebastien and Gizzy.
