Welcome to my stop on the DEAD Hunter book tour. Brought to you by Innovative Online Tours. Here you can read a synopsis of the book, my review, and First Chapter and a Giveaway! I also have a bio of author Lizzie T Leaf. Don’t forget to visit the other blogs on this tour for more information and other reviews about this book and author.
Finally a guy who makes her hot and chilly...is he a vampire or has sex messed with her hunter sensors.
ArieAnne Hews is a trained vampire hunter out for the kill. A chance meeting with the hated beings has Arie in turmoil…these seem normal. Then enters handsome Dr. Jonas Nickels and things get really complicated.
Jonas Nickels has no desire to be involved with a mortal, but can't resist the dark-eyed beauty. Even if he is on her hit list!
Family secrets tinged with evil make an impossible path for star-crossed lovers.
Award winning author, Lizzie T. Leaf started life in Kansas, continued her growing in North Carolina, and currently shivers through the winters in Colorado. She has numerous e-books in varying lengths and her first print book, Struck by Lightning, won dual 2007 Beacon awards, in addition to being a finalist in two other contests.
In addition, Making Christmas, a Christmas Historical novella set during the Civil War won Love Romances Café Best Historical for 2011 and is a finalist in the Aspen Gold for Best Novella.
Beyond Magic, the first book in the Magical Love series won the 2012 Award of Excellence Best Paranormal/Fantasy/Sy-Fi, and is a finalist for Best Paranormal in the Aspen Gold. Winners are announced in mid to late October.
Since discovering the fun of writing paranormal, she plays with creating vampires, faeries and other immortals. Her current focus is the DEAD series. Musa Publishing has re-released the first four novellas in the series and DEAD Hot, a new novella, is scheduled to release in October. Emerging Magic, the second novel in the Magical Love series will also release in late October or early November with Passion in Print Press.
When not creating mischief for paranormal beings, she can be found exploring the other genres she wants to write. She also serves as the 2012 President for the Heart of Denver Romance Writers.
Lizzie loves to read, spend time with her family and travel with her best friend husband during her free time, on which most of friends ask…“what free time?”
I will try to keep this spoiler free for the previous books too, best I can. I started with Dead Awake, then Dead Faint, now its Dead Hunter.
We start this one in the mind of a young Vampire hunter, who gets these vibes, or feelings, when Vampires are near her. Arie is her name and I found it interesting that she gets this vibe when approaching a park, that has a pretty blonde who is pregnant and another women with a child. And her vibes are strong, but she sees no vampires (or so she thinks) and vows then and there, not to let anything happen to the 2 women and the child (who by the way, are vampires), the child is one of the rare pregnancies that was a success, and another on the way, (from the previous book Dead Faint) So if you read the others, you will conclude these ladies are Dovey, and BJ and Dovy's child.
I found it funny that Arie wants to protect them, but not knowing that they are where she gets her vibes.
Then she meets Jonas , the hot vampire doctor, and she likes him alot, right away, and of course at this point I have a feeling where its going. I decided this book will be more about Jonas and his special someone, who may be Arie, I wont tell, lol.
Arie finds herself in danger, and do you think Jonas will be able to help her? You will have to find out.
I really love how these books are like a continuation on each previous books, BUT not in a way that if you say skipped one, you would be fine. As each book does have the reappearance of the characters from the others, but it will concentrate the main story on the new additions. Like the first, was more Dovey and Aarons story, the 2nd was BJ and Daniels story, but Daniel was in the first one too, and of course Dovey and Aaron are in the 2nd and this one as well.
Overall all the books so far, are witty, fun, and exciting. True Blood fans will love them, as I had said before. Also has that fun of the Night Huntress series I love so much.
These are NOT for YA, they are adult books for sure.
I wont say more on the story , as it would spoil way too much. Lets just say, its an enticing read, and you need to read what I mean for yourself.
Very well written books, lots of promise for this author.
5 out of 5 stars for me.
