UPDATE: GIVEAWAY IS OVER, BUT YOU CAN STILL ENJOY THE POST AND LEAVE A COMMENT. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED.
Here is what FMB Author Promotions presented to everyone who signed up for this blog hop:
“Vampires and Werewolves. They are two of the most well-known and popular paranormal creatures today. Bones from Night Huntress (Chapter 32 anyone? *wink*) or Alcide Herveaux from the Sookie Stackhouse series, etc. This hop is all about the vampires and werewolves! Are you a vampire lover or werewolf lover?
If you had to choose would you cuddle up with your sexy dangerous vampire throughout the long nights or would you rather a sexy testosterone filled dominate werewolf that let out the most interesting of growls at *ahem* fun moments?
I have to admit it is a hard choice, I know! I do so love both! But if you had to choose: vampires or werewolves?”
How could I pass this one up? I loved the idea the minute I saw it. But of course, we can’t discuss this subject without some visuals to help us decide.
I picked the two biggest examples of this feud going on in entertainment today. We’ll start off with everyone’s favorite teen vamp and wolf competition: Twilight. (Hang in there; we’ll get to the adult version soon.)
Okay, I know. I can’t even count these vampires as worthy opponents since they sparkle, but I had to find a way to throw in Jacob—wolf boy. Again, we’ll get to wolf man in a minute.
If you ask me to choose vampire or werewolf between these, even though wolf boy has a rockin’ bod, I’m still going with the vamps. But, I’m not taking Edward. I want Jasper.
Please forgive this next pic if you are a Twilight fan–I actually do like Twilight, but I couldn’t resist this. Found it on Facebook.
Now let’s get to the good stuff. The real meat of this discussion. Do we want a dangerous vamp sucking on our necks or do we want a growling wolf holding us down? Yep, we need more visuals to decide. This time we’ll look at the yummy adult version of the competition: True Blood.
This is the one time where my vampire obsession gets tested a little. Alcide—wolf man—is irresistible. And Joe Manganiello growls so sexy. Still, I want my vamps. In this case I want Eric, especially when he had the long hair. So even though wolf man’s body is magnificently lickable, I will not give up my dark and sexy immortals.
But, damn. Isn’t Sookie lucky to have so many sexy men–two vamps and a werewolf–lusting after her? If I were her, I’d take them all.
I’m sure you all know me well enough by now to realize there’s no way to get out of a post involving vampires without me throwing in my favorite Aussie actor, Alex O’Loughlin. So here we go one more time with the vampire PI, Mick St. John from the TV show Moonlight.
Yes, I do choose vampires, but I’m not opposed to having wolf man on the side. That growl is irresistible. But vampires are too sexy to pass up. They have always been my first choice and probably always will be. This is why I write mostly about vampires.
What about you? As FMB asked: “…if you had to choose: vampires or werewolves?” This is how I’m putting it: are you team vampire or team werewolf? I couldn’t resist. And I’m adding another question. Who is your favorite vamp or wolf?
Edit: We have added a third team: team I want both. Somtimes it’s just too hard to choose.

If you’d like to read the first novelette, Nothing Lasts Forever, here are THE PURCHASE LINKS. The third book, Midnight Confessions, will be out next month, followed by the novel, Night Therapy, later this year.
Nocturnal Surrender Blurb: After two hundred years in exile, vampire Bastian Evanko has come back to earn his brother’s respect and plot revenge against the vampire who murdered his fiancée, Elise. In Lansford, PA, the Sin City of the East, Bastian must fight his rebellious nature and learn to control his impulsiveness so he is no longer considered a scourge on the Evanko name. When he asks for a private dance, and a bite, from stripper Darling Nikki, he gets far more than he bargains for—including another chance at love. But even the love of a beautiful woman isn’t enough to sate his need for retribution.
Nicole French simply wants to learn how to live in her new town, come to terms with stripping to pay the bills, and make it through law school without having a breakdown over the painful memories she hides. Having a man in her life is the last thing she needs, but when Bastian Evanko asks for a private dance, and to drink her blood, she ends up with more than just a freaky customer. Things heat up quickly in the private room with the sexy stranger. Only problem is, he likes to pretend he’s a vampire and suck down human blood.
To make matters worse, a war is brewing between vampires and Hunters. And after losing Elise because of her vampire Hunter brother, can Bastian take the risk of bringing Nicole into his life? But, on the other hand, can he pass up another chance at love?
