Lauren Dane Guest Post & Giveaway: Simon’s love letter to Lark


Lauren Dane consistently brings the awesome. This is no surprise to, really, anyone in the romance community. I particularly loved her new paranormal Bound by Magick series. The first book Heart of Darkness cleverly treated the bonding of two magic users as though they were werewolves meeting for the first time. Always human, but still very primal. Rather brilliant, really.

I had to know what she has in store for the second book Chaos Burning, which hits store June 5. Lauren was kind enough to give us a bit of insight into her hero Simon by letting the leading man write a love letter to heroine Lark. He loves her and knows she wouldn’t want him to get too sappy. We like the strong ones, don’t we, VBC readers?

Chaos Burning by Lauren Dane (Bound by Magick #2)Dear Lark,
My Dear Ass-Kicking Little Witch,

Yeah, that’s better. Normally I wouldn’t open with dear mainly because you’re not an old woman who gave me a butterscotch at the airport or a relative. In the end I went with Dear because despite the way you come home with bruised knuckles and the blue hair dye you leave on my towels, you are dear to me. Dear and precious and all manner of important.

To say I never expected you is an understatement. No one could expect to find another person who comes to mean what you do me. You are fierce. You are soft and gentle with those you love. You are everything a male like me could ever dream of.

I could continue to get romantic but you’d get that look on your face and look at me warily. Probably punch me in the arm and reassure me I was totally going to get some so stop being mushy. But we both know you like it.

For today and the rest my life you will be my valentine. My heart’s mate and my fashion-challenged other half.

I love you seems a pale tribute to what you make me feel, so I also got you a new handgun.



We have one copy of the stellar and sexy Heart of Darkness for a VBC reader with a U.S. address. Enter by March 4, 2012.
