I am a fan, superfan really, or the even more impressively capped SuperFan, of paranormal romances. I write them, I read them, I talk about them. So when I was offered the chance to be a part of the cover reveal team for Bite Somebody, Sara Dobie Bauer’s new paranormal romance novel, I was suddenly very, very…thirsty. Thirsty enough to…Bite Somebody (come on, I HAD to do it, that is the Best. Title. Ever.)
Oh, there’s more. Here’s the tag line on SDB’s website
“Immortality is just living longer with more embarrassment.”
I know I know. Even better. I cannot wait to meet Celia, the star of Bite Somebody. The book doesn’t come out until June 21st but you don’t have to wait that long to see the cover, you lucky ducks.
*drum roll* Wheee!
I absolutely LOVE this cover, reminds me of a chick-lit Lucille Ball or Carrie Bradshaw who happens to be a newly turned vampire trying to keep it all together while sipping her blood martini and looking fabulous. Here’s a taste of the book:
“Do you want to be perfect?”
That’s what Danny asked Celia the night he turned her into a vampire. Three months have passed since, and immortality didn’t transform her into the glamorous, sexy vamp she was expecting, but left her awkward, lonely, and working at a Florida gas station. On top of that, she’s a giant screw-up of an immortal, because the only blood she consumes is from illegally obtained hospital blood bags. What she needs to do—according to her moody vampire friend Imogene—is just … bite somebody. But Celia wants her first bite to be special, and she has yet to meet Mr. Right Bite.
Then, Ian moves in next door. His scent creeps through her kitchen wall and makes her nose tingle, but insecure Celia can’t bring herself to meet the guy face-to-face. When she finally gets a look at Ian’s cyclist physique, curly black hair, and sun-kissed skin, other parts of Celia tingle, as well. Could he be the first bite she’s been waiting for to complete her vampire transformation? His kisses certainly have a way of making her fangs throb. Just when Celia starts to believe Ian may be the fairy tale ending she always wanted, her jerk of a creator returns to town, which spells nothing but trouble for everyone involved.
Bite Somebody will be available in trade paperback and ebook via Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com, World Weaver Press, and other online retailers, and for wholesale through Ingram.
