Book Tour & Giveaway for Once Bitten, Forever Burned by Eve Langlais & Stacey Kennedy

I want to thank Roxanne Rhoads for allowing me to be a part of this exciting book tour and to Eve and Stacey for creating a sexy and intriguing anthology.  Not only have these wonderful authors provided a guest post, but also an awesome giveaway for a copy of their anthology Once Bitten, Forever Burned.  So without further ado.....

Big thanks to, Words of Wisdom....from The Scarf Princess, for allowing Eve and I to stop by and share our new release with all. Before we get to that, let’s chat a little bit about writing emotional scenes. Both stories in, Once Bitten, Forever Burned, are a bit heart wrenching.

In Devon’s Redemption, we experience Bethany’s pain through an abusive life. The want to get away from a horrible situation, but has no one to save her. The story is a journey of seeing a woman find happiness again…and that just pulls on the heart strings.

Now onto Cruz’s Salvation where poor Kiara has to decide between the love of the vampire she adores or the father who has raised her. In her story, we witness her heart being torn to pieces, knowing that she’ll never have both, no matter how much she wants it.

Sigh, right?!

Eve and I both enjoyed writing these emotional tales, because sometimes it’s just great to see people who are so low, rise back up again and find happiness.

So, we’d love to hear about you…are there emotional basket cases like us who love a dramatic story?

Once bitten, are they damned to forever burn without the touch of love?

A mini anthology containing:
Devon’s Redemption by Eve Langlais
Cruz’s Salvation by Stacey Kennedy


Bethany lost her one and only love to a war overseas. As if that weren’t bad enough, a brutal attack and claiming by a Lycan makes her life a living hell. She lives only for revenge until the day love comes back into her life and promises to rescue her from her misery. However, the mate who forced her isn’t about to let her go.

Devon died on the battlefield only to be reborn as a creature of the night. He fights to stay away from his one true love, but when he caves to his desire and sees her again, he discovers redemption is possible even for one who walks in darkness.

Warning: Contains scenes of violence toward the heroine and mentions of rape that might be offensive to some readers. Reader discretion is advised.

CRUZ’S SALVATION by Stacey Kennedy

Cruz understands torment. A mortal turned vampire in the war, he has suffered untold loneliness and despair. That is until he meets Kiara—a werewolf he’s forbidden to love.

Though Kiara needs Cruz, and wants him forever, werewolves and vampires are bitter enemies. To make matters worse, her Alpha, also her father, suspects that Kiara pines for a mate. Mistaking her sadness for the longing she feels for Cruz, he sets out to give her all the happiness he can provide.

Together, Kiara and Cruz will have to fight against the rules placed upon them to hold onto their love. But an unwanted visitor creates a complication neither of them planned for. Milo, Kiara’s chosen mate, has come to stake his claim. Now, not only are lives at risk, but hearts are threatened and dreams hang in the balance.  BUY LINK -

  1. I love a good dramatic story, but not too much drama where it's over the top and not believable (i.e. soap opera drama).
