Genre: Paranormal Romance

♥ Synopsis ♥

In Blood Vine, bites are an inconvenient bliss, exiled vampires are wasting away, and the fate of their kind depends on the perfect PR campaign.

When public relations pro Zoey Porter arrives at an enchanting California winery, she discovers her sexy new client is the almost one-night stand she can’t forget.  After her husband’s suicide, Zoey has vowed never to risk her heart again.  But can she walk away from the intriguing winemaker a second time?

Driven from Croatia by his ancient foes, vampire Andre Maras has finally made a blood-like wine to cure his fellow refugees.  Now he needs Zoey’s PR expertise to reach them.  After his wife’s death, Andre has a vow of his own—never to risk another painful blood bond.  And one taste of the tempting Zoey would bind him to her eternally.

His secrets stall her PR plans.  Her jealousy is stoked by the blissed-out beauties leaving his bedroom.  At every turn, he utterly fails to resist her.  When she discovers he is a vampire, will she be lost to the golden-eyed Hunters, or lose herself to the emptiness in her heart, before she can help him save his kind?





Andre took a deep breath when the door closed behind Zoey.  Kos waited for a few more moments before he said, “What the hell?”

Andre shrugged. “We met once in a bar.”

Kos stood up and began to pace. “A bar?  So, did you fuck her and then never call?”

“No, I did not fuck her. Nothing happened. We hardly spoke.”  Andre tried to stay calm. Since the moment he had recognized Ms. Porter, his heart had been trying to race right out of his chest. Best to keep that reaction from Kos.

“When was this?”

Andre sighed, trying to calm his nerves. He hoped he sounded impatient, not frayed. “I don’t know. More than a year ago.”

“That long?”  Kos stopped mid-stride. “You were practically paralyzed with shock when she walked in. I’ve never seen you speechless like that.”

“I never expected to see her again.”  He wiped his hand down his clean-shaven face.

Kos waited for more of an explanation.

“And I’ve thought about her a few times in the last year.”

“I’m guessing those thoughts were not G-rated.”

No. They were also not few.

Kos returned to his chair. “Back when you didn’t fuck Zoey Porter, did she smell like Hunter?  Because that’s a turn off for me.”

“Hell no.”

“Well, you didn’t fuck her, but a Hunter sure did.”

“What? I did not smell that.”  Instantly, he lost all the calm he had gained and his heart thudded insistently.

“Well, I did, when she shook my hand. It must be Ethan, given Pedro is Lucas’s type.”

Andre ground his teeth. He remembered that, when they spoke on the phone, Ethan had sounded rather possessive of her.

“Do you think she knows what they are?  What we are?” Kos asked.

“I do not think so.”  Again, he wiped his hand down his face.

“Then what the hell are they trying to accomplish sending her here?” Kos asked.

“My best guess?  They must know we smelled them on Pedro and they want to know why we have not run yet.”

Kos crossed his arms tightly as if he were cold. “I keep asking myself the same question.”

“If we have found the cure, it is not just for us. It will help our old friends and all the other refugees from Šolta. That is why Ms. Porter is here—to help us reach them.”

“You’re right. But still, I have a very bad feeling about this,”  Kos said as he stood up to leave.  At the door, he said over his shoulder, “Best to feed often while she’s here. You were looking very hungry as you watched her walk out.”  He closed the door before Andre could reply.

Kos was right, he did need to eat more often to keep up his waning strength. But none of the women in his household—Susan, Ally, and the simpering Lena—seemed nearly as appetizing as Zoey. His body had finally calmed down, but a sinking feeling in his gut replaced the initial shock. The spark between them could seriously complicate his plans.

Alright! Let’s get down to business and meet this sexy beast! Please Welcome Andre Maras! I’m going to post his picture again, because I can’t stop staring at it *winks*


About Andre…

My name is Andre Maras, and though I was born a few years before Jesus Christ in the city of Rome, I consider Croatia my home.  It is there I was made a vampire, and where I became a vintner, and raised my family.  Croatia remains in my blood in ways I wish it were not, though I now dwell in California, on my estate in wine country.

Interview with Andre…

1.        What is your ideal woman like?

Empty and as thoroughly disinterested in emotional entanglements as I am.

2.        What do you like the least about yourself?

What an absurdly twenty-first century question. Why would one spend time pondering one’s negative traits.  I have had millennia to make peace with myself.

All right, perhaps I am a touch impatient at times.

3.        What are the three most important things in life to you?

My family, my household, my fellow vampires, especially my old friends from Croatia.

4.        What music is on your playlist right now?

I do not typically listen to music. I prefer silence.

5.        What is your favorite curse/dirty word?

I say Davo, and I am perhaps the only creature on earth who still does.  Once upon a time, everyone in Dalmatia used to curse devils with the word, but alas, no more.

6.        How do you seduce and/or excite a woman?

If a woman wants to be seduced, she is not a suitable partner for me. I only desire women who want to be efficiently fucked. You might be surprised how many of them a vampire like me finds in a city such as San Francisco, though I have not sought one out for many months.

7.       Where is the most interesting place you’ve ever made love?

 I do not make love, and I am perfectly content to bend a woman over any flat surface in order to find the satisfaction we both seek.

  1. LOL! I’m so glad you think Andre is gorgeous. I have to say, he’s more than just a character to me–he’s become a friend, as crazy as that sounds. He sort of lives in my head, and his fatherliness shapes all the books in the Blood Vine Series (Good daddies are SUPER sexy to me!).
