Sexy Exclusive Excerpt from Vivian Arend’s Laird Wolf (+ Giveaway)

Sexy Exclusive Excerpt from Vivian Arend’s Laird Wolf (+ Giveaway) We’re edging into the dog days of summer with sticky heat. Instead of cranking the air conditioning at VBC HQ, we thought we’d bring in werewolves and Lairds. Someone should invest in fans. Vivian Arend knows how to bring the sexy, and her second book in the Takihi Shifters series Laird Wolf is no exception. We snagged an exclusive excerpt from the novel for y’all, and we have two...

Giveaway: Signed Copy of Under My Skin by Shawntelle Madison

Giveaway: Signed Copy of Under My Skin by Shawntelle Madison As we edge toward the end of July, I’m eager for new, fresh reads. Also, I’ve been sick this month, and for some reason that always puts me in a bit of a reading funk. My tastes change and I want something entirely different. I flit from genre to genre when I’m feverish, apparently. In the event the general sweltering-ness of summer has you craving a refreshing read, I snagged a little...

Giveaway: All 5 Jessica McClain books by Amanda Carlson

Giveaway: All 5 Jessica McClain books by Amanda Carlson We’ve been on board with Amanda Carlson’s Jessica McClain series since the beginning. When Full Blooded released we were hooked on the unique werewolf series. Jessica was the only female werewolf. She is strong and feminine. She kicks ass. These are things the VBC team appreciates, especially in urban fantasy. The series has her dealing with rogue werewolves, witches and even a voodoo...

Giveaway: The Hanged Man by P.N. Elrod

Giveaway: The Hanged Man by P.N. Elrod Last week Jo reviewed P.N. Elrod’s The Hanged Man, and if you watched Twitter that day you probably saw almost every VBC reviewer (and this editor!) hit up Jo to tell her that now they had to read the book. Maybe we’re all itching for a good fantasy with Victorian trappings. This book, though, has the mystery hook and supernatural elements that hits all our buttons. Jo actually described the...

The Alpha Showdown 2015 Champion is…

The Alpha Showdown 2015 Champion is… Wrath! The mighty vampire warrior and king has claimed the title this year after some seriously hard-fought battles. He took out Raphael, Kate Daniels and Mad Rogan to make it to the championship match. Pretty damn impressive, and worthy of honors. Both he and final-round competitor Kaleb had fans rally for them, but in the end the Black Dagger Brotherhood member who has not one, but two books about him...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Championship Round: Wrath vs. Kaleb

Alpha Showdown 2015 Championship Round: Wrath vs. Kaleb The fifth annual Alpha Showdown has been the hardest fought so far. We had countless matches where a handful of votes determined the winner. Thousands of people voted, and one of our final combatants won his last round by only a single vote. Wrath and Kaleb have demonstrated dominance throughout the Showdown. The BDB and Psy/Changeling fans have rallied in each bout, which means this final match is going...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 14: Kaleb vs. Curran

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 14: Kaleb vs. Curran Today’s match will determine the second alpha to enter the final round. These characters are just a fight away from the championship match. So, clearly, they’re badasses. Kaleb from Nalini Singh’s Psy/Changeling series took out not one, but two vampires to make it to this round. The Beast Lord Curran from Ilona Andrews’ Kate Daniels series easily beat Simon in the first round, but...

Ward’s...
