Bound_to_Shadows Hi everyone! Thanks to Meryl L. Moss Media Relations & Book Trib, I have a copy of Bound to Shadows by Keri Arthur to giveaway to one lucky winner. Bound by Shadows, the eighth book in the Riley Jenson Guardian series, releases this coming Tuesday, October 27, 2009.

I’ve been collecting the Riley Jenson Guardian series, I have the first six books so far, which I hope to start reading soon. These books look like they are right down my urban fantasy alley.

Reviews on Bound to Shadows:

"Another classic installment to this phenomenal, cutting-edge paranormal romance series."
- Reviewed by Mandy Burns of Fresh Fiction

"The two halves of Riley Jenson’s soul are heading for a smackdown. Riley’s journey has never been easy, but this book ratchets things up to a whole new level. This series just keeps getting better and better. Kudos to Arthur!"
- Reviewed by Jill Smith of RT Book Reviews

Book Blurb from Keri Arthur’s web site:

In the darkness, demons come out to play . . .
and someone must bring their sins to light.

Part vampire, part werewolf, Riley Jenson knows what can happen when vamps don’t play well with others. But she’s never seen anything like this: a series of brutal murders surrounding the latest hot spot for vampire-human hookups—and the victims aren’t just killed, they’re beheaded. Now Riley is launching into action, toying with a seductive—and highly suspicious—club owner, and finding herself in the middle of another mystery: women being killed one by one, without a trace of violence.

For Riley, solving multiple cases—in a world going mad with human and vampire passions—would have been tough enough. Instead she has two jealous lovers on her hands: Kye Murphy, the amber-eyed werewolf who makes Riley’s wolf blood howl—and Quinn, the cool, elegant vamp who has over a thousand years’ experience at fulfilling women’s desires. While she’s busy juggling these two sexy beasts, Riley’s detective work takes a stunningly violent turn. Finding a murderer is now a matter of life and death. Especially since the killer has long since found her . . .

I'd rather be a vampire! I love to stay up all night and sleep all day already, so a perfect fit for me. Plus, I could persuade the sales people at B&N to give me all the new paranormal romance books free as soon as they were available.(I could sit up all night and read and no one could complain)

Misty said...

I'd prefer Vampire, I'm not a morning person, like to stay up nights reading. I fllow blog and am post on my blog at

Jen D. said...

After Riley, Liander is my favorite. A makeup artist with a military background..c'mon that's pretty fierce.

Thanks for the giveaway. Count me in!

Since I'm already mostly nocturnal and photophobic, I might as well be a vampire. ^_^


Unknown said...

Hi :)
Riley is my favorite of course.
All the best,

CrystalGB said...

I love this series. Riley is my favorite character. I think I would want to be a hybrid like Riley.


Marian Perera said...

I wasn't sure which I'd want to be - a werewolf or a vampire - but vampires usually seem to be better dressed. For that reason alone I'd have to go with being a vampire. :)

Jenni @ Falling Off The Shelf said...

I love the Riley Jenson series, and well..its' because of Riley! She's a kick ass heroine, and she is not afraid to stand up for herself. I would love to be a hybrid like her, I think it would be awesome!

Thanks for the great giveaway, I can't wait for this book!

My email is on my profile :)

Caroline said...

I find Vampires sexier, but it would have to be a werewolf. I am into gardening.

donnas said...

I would rather be a vampire than a werewolf. But a hybrid like Riley could be cool, shes a great character.

Asylumgirl said...

I would say vampire, but there would probably definitely be certain advantages to being a hybrid.

I've always been a werewolf girl but reading the Riley Jensen series it is interesting to see the interesting things hybrids can do. They can have the best of both worlds which is very cool. Thank for the contest.

I've read the whole series and
I love Riley - part werewolf, part vampire, she has it all. I think a hybrid would be the way to go, as long as you got the good characteristics of both. I can't wait to read Bound to Shadows.

Sophia (FV) said...

Barb P said...

I have to say that my favorite character is Quinn. He's got that sexy vampire thing going on. I think if I had my choice, I like the Hybrid idea. Being able to have some of the traits of 2 diff species is appealing. Please enter me in the contest I love the series.

Beleth said...

I would be a hybrid like Riley! She is my fav character!

I would want to be a hybrid like my favorite character Riley, to have a little of both worlds.

IceJewel said...

Being a vampire would be very sexy..but the idea of my skin to be always cold and hiding from sunlight, if the myths are true, will be such a big NO-NO.

On the other hand, if I am a werewolf, the idea of my clothes torn when I am turning into a wolf will be very horrible !!
So, a mix of both should be excellent.. :)

Hi I see that you marked my entry as a garbage can, which I'm assuming you'll be dumping, so will now redo it.
I would be a werewolf if I could choose. I think that would be the most interesting choice. polo-puppy-fluffy AT hotmail *dot* com Love the blog. Cheers.

Donna said...

Hi MarionG - I didn't mark your entry as garbage. :) You see the garbage can because you are the owner of that comment and if you want to delete your comment, you can with the garbage can button. Don't worry, I have your entry.

Thanks for the contest.

jellybelly82158 said...

I love Kerri's books! I have a hard time deciding. I love Riley herself because she is so secure in her on ablility. But I like Quinn because he is the cool and calm vampire (most of the time)

Edu Chico said...

A Werewolf!
I love that animal side, that dependence on the full moon!

I would obviously be a vampire.
Memorable like Bela Lugosi.
Who remembers the actor who does Werewolf?
