Coming from Avon Paranormal Romance on Dec. 28 is Nina Bangs' Eternal Prey. Want to win a copy? Read on...
THE PLOT: A magnificent creature, Utah wants vengeance against the bloodsuckers who murdered his brother. Once the beast within him is unleashed, he won’t rest until every vampire is destroyed. But he never expected to encounter a leader of his immortal enemies who was so beautiful, bewitching . . . and mortal. It is Lia’s destiny and her duty to stop the renegade vampires who are intent on annihilating the human and non-human races alike. But she never dreamed that Utah, once a deadly foe, would now become her ally and protector, or that loving him would be more dangerous than anything she’s ever faced before. For when Utah frees his predator soul, there will be no end to the carnage.
THE AUTHOR: USA Today bestselling author Nina Bangs lives near Houston, Texas, with her cat, Abby, and two vampires who never made it into her books. Eternal Prey is the third in her Gods of the Night series.
MY THOUGHTS: You don't need to have read the first two in this series to love Eternal Prey--in fact, I'm off in search of the first two. At first I thought the premise (at the end of the Mayan Calendar in November 2012, earth's dominant species--humans--will be destroyed, and only the shapeshifting remnants of the dinosaurs can prevent it, plus there are vampires) sounded over-the-top. But Bangs pulls it off, and I found myself really loving the worldbuilding in this. Plus the dino-shifters are, you know, hot.
THE GIVEAWAY: Want a copy of Eternal Prey? All you have to do is comment on your favorite shifter.
