Top Ten Reasons Sleeping With the Enemy is a Pain in the Ass + giveaway

Top Ten Reasons Sleeping With the Enemy is a Pain in the Ass
 by the traitorous wizard Anton 
and his author Elisabeth Staab 

Hi, everyone! Many thanks to I Smell Sheep for having us here today!


In book one of Chronicles of Yavn, we met Anton. Anton was a wizard, an enemy of the vampires, who had been tasked with kidnapping the vampire king’s half sister. He refused because he’d fallen in love with Tyra from afar, and for his failure was tortured and left for dead by his kind. In Prince of Power, we see Anton and Tyra struggle with trust, and the very major logistics of two members of opposing species falling in love. These two species have been at war for centuries. That wizards are soulless and evil has been passed down through vampire lore for so long that when Anton arrives on the scene—the son of the wizard leader, no less—the vampires have trouble buying his sincerity. It was a very bumpy road. I’ve asked Anton to come with me to give a quick rundown of some of the challenges he’s faces as a member of an enemy race loving the vampire king’s sister and he gladly agreed to… Wait. Anton? *grabs the back of Anton’s T-shirt* Anton, you said you’d give them a list. Come on…

*Anton glares and sits down* Okay, here we go.

*The sheep potty mouth police had to censor Anton a little bit <G>*

1. First? All the vampire males are arrogant a@@holes. How have they lived so long taking themselves so seriously? I was tortured and cast out from my kind. My female is ultra-powerful. Sorry about all of your tiny d*#ks, fellas, but I couldn't have gotten through my life without a little humor and being secure in my manhood. You know?

2. No Trust. What does a guy have to do to get a little faith passed his way? If you help take down your father, you’re a traitor, and if you don’t you’re the kind who ignores the pain and suffering of the vampire you love. No matter what you do, you’re f***ed.

3. No Privacy. Try to make love to your woman, and her brother the king shows up to bang on the door with the mighty fist of c**kblocking righteousness. Do I need to say more?

4. It isn’t just that they’re all nocturnal, my female feels like she needs to atone for being a half-breed with all these uppity pure-blood d**kheads so likes to burn the candle at both ends. It’s not just that we’re up all night, but more of an up all night, up all day routine. And thank f**k I’ve got the healing powers to keep up with her in the sack or I’d be sunk.

5. There’s that whole issue about sunlight. I grew up in a stale, bloody, nasty-ass sanctum with no free-flowing air. It’d be nice to open a window on a sunny day once in awhile, now that I’m free of that place. But no, even though my mate is half-vampire and can tolerate a little daylight, there are security concerns, and the vampires get squirmy when I roam freely in the daytime all by my lonesome. They get even squirmier when I spend time alone in the day with the resident human. Dammed if you do, damned if you don’t.

6. Holding back my powers in front of the newbie vampire fighters because it makes them uncomfortable. Hello, I am an outcast wizard living among hundreds of vampires who hate my traitor ass every single day. Talk about uncomfortable. These kids need to grow a pair.

7. There’s that f***ed-up interrogation cell they chained me up in when they thought I’d led them all into an ambush. Can we talk again about the trust issues? While we’re at it, let’s make a list of “Anton’s top ten things to go after with a bulldozer…”

8. I’ve incurred the wrath of my kind for defecting, but whatever. You want to strap me down and cut out my heart? Only if you beg me. Let’s be honest: I’m a pacifist at heart, but I’m also a realist. If it’s me or the other guy, then I’ll have to make his blood boil. Literally. Still, talk about disgusting.

9. Fighting alongside the female I love is a mixed bag. She’s fierce, but still I want to protect her. Tyra is older and her powers are greater. It fills a man with pride, and a mighty sense of terror all at once, knowing she can protect herself better than I can. Holy hell though, it’s f***ing hot to see her stomp an enemy’s face into the dirt.

10. Falling in love may mean happy ever after, but it’s also the beginning of proving your worth to the race your brethren have killed for centuries. This is a little more complicated than making up for the embarrassing time you spilled coffee in your brother in law’s crotch. Which, for the record, is a sin I have also committed. In the end though? Worth all the pain a million times over, for the love of the strongest, most loyal, and most beautiful vampire I’ve ever had the honor to know. I would not change a thing.


Wizards and vampires have been mortal enemies since the beginning. Now Anton, son of the Wizard Master, has one last chance to steal the unique powers of the vampire king's beautiful sister, Tyra...and then kill her. But when he meets Tyra face-to-face, everything changes... 

Tyra will stop at nothing to defeat the wizards, until Anton saves her life and she suddenly sees an opportunity she never could have imagined...

As the sparks ignite between them, together they could bring an end to the war that's decimating their people, but only if they can find a way to trust each other...

    ReplyDelete

  17. If he's sexy, determined and truly believes in his cause, then yes. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  18. Sounds so good, I love your reviews, and I know this one will be a great read.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yes, I would, because with enemies like him, we don't really need friends, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  20. I'm saying yes 'cause I'm taking one for the team & gathering intel!!!

    ReplyDelete
  21. No, I would not sleep with the enemy. Plenty of other choices, why bother.

    ReplyDelete
  22. If he turns out to be a good guy and not really the enemy, yeah I would.

    ReplyDelete
  23. It really all depends on the man's nature. Even though you are opposite sides does not necessarily mean one is bad. Sometimes they are drafted into the fight.

    ReplyDelete
  24. If I fell in love with him... And he fell in love with me.

    ReplyDelete

  27. It depends if he was too much of an A$$ or not. :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm too young for this but if I feel like I would regret it if I don't do it with him then I would. Isn't it just another way of expressing love to each other? Yes. (Wait... why am I answering my own question? Lol)

    ReplyDelete
  29. lol... maybe when I was younger... but now that the responsible side of me is pretty prominent, I'd have to think it over ;)

    ReplyDelete
  30. I guess it depends on how hot the enemy was and if I could do it without repercussions. :D

    ReplyDelete
  31. I would if it was a life and death situation.

    ReplyDelete
  32. If he makes it worth going bad for and enough of his time convincing me to stay and to never want to go back to a normal goody two shoes life.

    ReplyDelete
  33. That entirely depends on what's in it for me, who's enemy he/she is, and what the fallout would be. Thanks for the contest!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Possibly if being bad is worth it lol

    ReplyDelete
  35. It would depend on the situation. If I loved the guy then yeah :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. If the enemy happens to be Anton, H@ll Yeah! You know what they say...keep your friends close, and your enemies closer!

    ReplyDelete
  37. He will have to win my love and earn my respect first. After all, he is my enemy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. I might think about it! If he was truly tempting and if I a loved this enemy... oh yeah!

    ReplyDelete
  39. If he was sexy and a bad boy of course I'd sleep with the enemy!

    ReplyDelete
  40. If he's a sexy bad boy then yes I would!
