Author Spotlight on Bitten Twice

Today, the spotlight is on Bitten Twice and her new novel, Marked. She guest blogged here a few months back.  Please read her post on Vampire Lore I'm happy to welcome her back!  I'm running a drawing for a Cara Mia, I Love Vampires t-shirt to be given away on May 31st.  To enter, leave a comment for Bitten Twice and then scroll down and read one of my Cedric speaks posts and leave another comment there.

A few words from Bitten Twice:

Vampire Nemesis or Sidekick?

Vampires seemed to be favored as being the #1 pick for the top of the paranormal food chain. There's also the question of whether vamps are alive, dead, or simply un-dead. Not to be confused with the zombie- the re-animated corpse.

So where do therians, weres, or shapeshifters fit in?

Some vampires have been known to keep hell hounds that protect the lair during the day especially in the cases where the vamp goes into a deep coma induced sleep during the daylight hours.

Certain lore also tells of werewolves or shapeshifters that guarded the vampire estates by day. Granted in some of these cases the werewolf was bound. In some cases the equivalent of slavery. In other cases the vampire binds the shifter to him like a familiar.

Of course there are plenty of stories that depict the shifters waging wars against the vampires and vice versa. The vampires usually come across as this educated force of logical strength while the shifters are usually some degenerate illogical unorganized strength.

If you like sexy weres that stay in control and are capable of strategy and passion you may be interested in Marked.

Here is a little bit about Marked:

Great legends tell of the pairing of souls.

Two that would come together in an eternal bond yielding great power.

Forever marked with a destiny waiting to unfold

The wielders of light in darkness' final hour

Demonic forces threaten to tip the balance of power for all worlds. Xan, King of the Cats, is one of many called in by the Templar organization to eliminate the source of the trouble brewing in North America. Arriving in New York Xan, a powerhouse of seduction, meets Katherine and begins to wonder whether he has met his soul mate or fallen into a trap. The war with the underworld comes topside and Xan is in the midst of fighting an unfamiliar battle - rejection. Can Katherine accept their differences?
