Bewitching Blog Tours: Perpetual Light - Jordan K Rose Guest Post/Giveaway

Please welcome Jordan K Rose to Fictional Candy, as she speaks about some of my favorite things - candy , and vampires!  Woohoo!! 
Thank you for the post, Jordan, and best of luck with your release!


Synopsis:
Fate is cruel. Especially when the one you’ve sworn to love for all eternity, the very soul who changed your destiny is the last person you should trust.

After more than three hundred years of running, Lucia Dicomano must make a choice.

Forced to take her place as a Pharo of Redemption, the divine slayer needs to master her forgotten powers. Lucia turns to Vittorio, the one vampire she’s failed to deliver from eternal damnation. But overcoming smoldering remnants of love, lust and anger aren’t their only obstacles.

Samuel, who may know Lucia better than she knows herself, hunts her with a fervor stoked by a thousand years of vengeful hatred. His plan—capture and enslave the weakened Pharo then take control of her elusive power. 

Can Lucia trust Vittorio long enough to reclaim her powers? Or will she have no choice but to kill him and battle Samuel alone?

Hi Liz. Thanks so much for letting me stop by Fictional Candy on my Perpetual Light Blog Tour. I love your philosophy that fiction is like candy for the brain. I totally agree. And who doesn’t like candy?

Not me. I love candy. Fictional or otherwise. I thought today I’d compare my favorite type of romance with my favorite candy. 

Paranormal romance is my favorite subgenre, although, I enjoy all the others to varying degrees. In terms of candy—I love chocolate. However, I enjoy all sweets, just not as much as chocolate. I’m just a bit of a paranormal fiend. Similarly, I’m a chocaholic. (I believe they say knowing is half the battle!)

I can resist a historical or a suspense or a regency or an inspirational, but if you throw in a paranormal element, I’m there. And, if that paranormality happens to be a vampire, I’m probably addicted, sitting in a state of awe that could easily be confused for a diabetic coma.

According to my Fictional Candy rating scale paranormal romance equals chocolate. I love chocolate. Chocolate anything. Truffles. Chocolate covered cherries, pretzels, nuts, fruit. Hot chocolate. Tea. Coffee, that makes mocha, doesn’t it? Ice cream. You get where I’m going, right? Hot fudge…

My absolute favorite chocolate is dark chocolate. Now, this isn’t just because it tastes better. Lord knows milk chocolate is amazing. But, in an effort to make some attempt to be health conscious I try to eat dark chocolate. You know, less fat, calories, whatever. And I’m pretty sure the Health Department advices women to eat it, every day. Who am I to disagree with that advice?

So, vampires being my absolute favorite paranormal creature are synonymous with dark chocolate.  Rich and dark, robust, yet smooth, possibly nutty or fruity, spicy or refreshingly minty. So many options. So many vampires. My mouth’s watering thinking about vampires and chocolate. Love them!

Well, that’s done it. I now need both dark chocolate and a vampire. I’m heading over to the TBR pile to grab a book and downstairs to my stash of chocolate covered cherries from Sweenor’s Chocolates. I’ll see you on the flipside of my coma!

But when I get back I want to know about your favorite subgenre and your favorite candy. And, I’m offering a $10 gift certificate to Harvard Sweet Boutique. You can’t beat their sweets. So leave me a comment for a chance to win. To increase your chances of winning connect with me via one or more of the social networks listed below.

About the Author:

After trying her hand at many, many things- from crafting and art classes to cooking and sewing classes to running her own handbag business, Jordan finally figured out how to channel her creativity. With an active imagination and a little encouragement from her husband she sat down and began to write, each night clicking away at the keys with her black Labrador, Dino curled up under the desk.

A few short years later she’s entered the publishing arena with no plans to ever turn back.

Jordan’s a member of Rhode Island Romance Writers, as well as RWA National, and the New England (NEC), Connecticut, and Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal (FFnP) Chapters.

Her first book, Perpetual Light, is available on Amazon’s Kindle from Crescent Moon Press.

  1. Sounds like a great book! I plant to check out you website Jordan. Dark chocolate to me is more of a acquired taste. It's bitter enough to make you think it's not chocolate, lol. Good luck with the book!

  2. Jordan, I'm having so much fun following you on this blog tour. I just can't believe how much we have in common. I'm a chocaholic too! Like you, I love all kinds of chocolate, but my favorite it milk. Ummm.

    As far as romance goes, I'll take it any way I can get it! Paranormal, historical, contemporary, you name it and I'm probably going to love it. LOL

    1. Hi Lilian. I love Reeses, too. For Christmas my husband bought me some gourmet chocolate peanut butter cups in both dark and milk. I have to say I like my pb cups in milk much better than dark! Jordan
