Book Spotlight for Night Sighs by Emma Meade

Just in time for Halloween comes this sexy collection of short stories revolving around the complicated relationship of vampire rocker Tristan and newly widowed Alexandra.  See more of their tumultuous relationship by reading Night Sighs by Emma Meade as well as reading her guest blog below......

A vampire rock star - The ultimate bad boy?

Most of have fantasised about a musician at some point in our life.  I know I have. Hell, a few months ago, I got to see Bruce Springsteen live in concert and nearly swooned off my seat.  The man is 62 and as sexy as ever.  So, what is it about rock stars that makes them so damn hot?  

Their creativity has a lot to do with it.  These guys make music with their hands, write love songs that move us and rock out on stage in front of adoring fans.  Rock stars are larger than life, somehow not quite real people, almost like characters from books.  They ooze sex appeal, radiate charisma and can reduce us to tears with an exquisite love song.  What normal man can do that? Add a slice of immortality to the mix and no woman is safe from their charms.

Imagine a vampire on stage, singing his long life's story to an unknowing audience, choosing his next meal, or eternal lover from the crowds of enraptured fansall vying to go home with him after the show.  Listen to the beauty of his eternal voice and watch his graceful figure dance across the stage. Now picture him staring into the sea of people, and picking you.

And going back to Bruce Springsteen. I owe my own vampire, Tristan's existence to him. Tristan is a rock star vampire in my short story "The Dead Beats", part of the Night Sighs collection.
Have you ever seen a video on youtube of The Boss performing? If not, I urge you to check him out. It was his 1985 Paris performance of "Because the Night" that held me in thrall.  Haunting is the word that came to mind when I first watched it. The romance of the piano, the rocky and passionate strumming of the guitar and his voice… I wanted to be in that crowd that night.  
A vampire rocking out on stage came to mind when I watched Bruce sing and play to his avid audience.  I thought about the human girl who would get to go home with Tristan that night, and that's where Alex came in.  

So, is a vampire rock star the ultimate bad boy?
Floor's open.

It's good to be alive...when you're dead!

Meet Alex & Tristan, modern star-crossed lovers of the supernatural variety.

Alex is running-on-empty, one year on from the death of her fiancé, and the only thing that keeps her going is her romance with the young vampire, Tristan. Tristan, meanwhile has a serious obsession with Bruce Springsteen, and is battling a 'can't live without you' sort of love for Alex. He's trying to persuade her to come over to the dark side, but so far she's resisting his efforts.

So come and sing along to Tristan's band, The Dead Beats, the hottest group in London right now, and walk with Alex as she teeters between this life and the next. Because when you're around Tristan, you'll see, how much fun it is to be alive when you're dead....

Night Sighs is an adult paranormal romance, following the relationship & adventures of Tristan & Alex through five short stories: The Dead Beats, The Ancients, Until My Body Is Dust, Bourbon & Jazz and West of Forever.
