Alpha Male Diner: Vampire with Gabrielle Bisset + giveaway

We are double dipping today! PNR author Gabrielle Bisset is cooking up 2 yes, 2 vampire delicacies for you today. Ramiel and Thane are the heroes of Blood Prophecy (Sons of Navarus #4) coming out May 14 and Gabrielle was nice enough to share!

Ramiel (Vampire) 
Recipe by Gabrielle Bisset 
Blood Prophecy (Sons of Navarus #4) 

1 very well-built Visigoth warrior
2 razor sharp fangs
2 eyes black as night
A healthy streak of dominant
A heart full of memories of being a slave
1600 years of loneliness

Simmer memories and loneliness for centuries, adding in the natural aggression of this warrior's heritage. Set aside away from others and allow his heart to harden. Force him to be someone he isn't, further hardening this soul.

Caution: Ramiel is broken inside, so it will take a lot for this hero to love.

Serve with another Son of Navarus, Thane

Thane (Vampire) 

Recipe by Gabrielle Bisset 
Blood Prophecy (Sons of Navarus #4) 

1 muscular English nobleman
1 gentle heart full of kindness
2 kind brown eyes
2 razor sharp fangs
A soul that longs for love

A companion to Ramiel, Thane is the kinder side to the two Sons of Navarus who must decipher the Prophecy of Idolas. Happy and optimistic, this Alpha male balances out the hardness of his fellow Son.

Caution: Thane is the kind of male who will steal your heart with just one glance from those gentle brown eyes.

Taste Test

Blood Avenged
(Book 1 in the Sons of Navarus series): 

Vasilije looked around the room he’d just appeared in, his body alert to any danger. He’d followed the sense he’d gotten before Teagan’s spirit had been extinguished and knew he was in his home in New Orleans. Everything about the place was Teagan—from the Turkish cigarettes he smoked, to the bottle of Guinness that sat on the coffee table, to the musky scent that identified him as one of Vasilije’s vampires.

And the beautiful woman staring at him.

“Who did this?” Vasilije demanded.

Big brown eyes stared back at him. “I don’t know. It happened so fast. I left to grab another six pack and when I got back, someone had a stake...”

Vasilije stood watching the stranger as she cried, needing more information but forced to wait until there was a break in her tears.

“Who are you?”

The woman dried her eyes and sniffled. “Sasa. I was his girlfriend.”

At the use of the past tense, she began tearing up again, but Vasilije didn’t have time for it. Whoever had staked Teagan couldn’t have gone too far and any more time wasted with Sasa’s crying may mean he’d lose the fucker.

He moved to leave and her hand caught his arm.

“Please don’t go.”

She looked up at him with such a sad expression for a moment he didn’t want to go. But he couldn’t let Teagan’s murderer escape. Vasilije touched his hand to hers to remove it from his arm, but all this did was make her squeeze tighter.

“Please,” she begged in a voice that matched the pathetic look in her eyes. “Don’t leave me alone now.”

The urge to tear his arm from her hold and leave her to her misery spiked in him, but it was overruled by that small part of him that understood her sadness.

“Fine. Follow me. And keep up. And if I tell you to do something, do it. Do you understand?”

For a second, she looked surprised, and Vasilije thought he was going to hear a string of irritating questions. None came, though, and when he turned to head out the door, she followed silently.

At the street, he stopped and inhaled deeply, hoping to sense something that would help him find Teagan’s killer. Nothing came. But there’d been something in the apartment...something that he was sure he recognized.

Eyes closed, he let his other senses take over, but he got nothing. “What did he look like?”

“I don’t know. It was so quick. Blond, I think.”

Vasilije snapped his head to the left to look at her. “Man or woman?”

Instantly, Tatiana’s threat repeated in his head. Now I take something you cherish. Had she staked one of his vampires in retaliation over Alex? Vasilije doubted even Tatiana would stake a vampire herself, but she wasn’t above having someone else do it.


That didn’t mean Tatiana wasn’t behind Teagan’s murder. And who was this woman who claimed to be Teagan’s girlfriend?

“Did you see which direction he ran?”

Sasa shook her head sadly. “No, I’m sorry. Are you his sire?”

“How do you know about that?” he asked, more suspicious than he’d been just a minute earlier.

“Teagan was a vampire, and you just look like a sire would. That’s what you call them, right?” As she spoke, Vasilije studied her under the streetlight’s glow, still unsure she was who she claimed to be. Not bad looking, she seemed like someone Teagan could like. He’d always preferred brunettes with big eyes and bigger tits, and although she didn’t measure up to porn star level, she still had a nice body. He could see her as Teagan’s girlfriend.

Blood Prophecy (Sons of Navarus #4)
I am everything you fear. I am vampire.

As the two Sons chosen to decipher the Prophecy of Idolas, Ramiel and Thane journey to find the key to defeating the Archons. Together with Noele, a born vampire, they confront their fates as they fulfill their duty to their world. Along the way, they'll find love, but death and betrayal lurk in the shadows, threatening everything dear to them.

Descended from the gods and warriors all, each Son's loyalty will be tested. Every action has consequences, and the choices they make now seal their fates. Alliances as old as the vampire world itself are reforged, and the Sons' duty is clear. Stop the Archons. Or die trying.

About the Author:
Website | Facebook | S.O.N. FB Page | Twitter | Goodreads
I'm a UF/PNR author. For me, a book does more than just tell a story. It transports readers away from their daily lives to another place where they can be a part of something different than the common and everyday. I'm always so touched when readers tell me they felt like they were a part of the story when they read my books.

When I'm not writing, I can be found reading romance novels but often mysteries, cookbooks, and anything dealing with ancient and medieval history and European history, in general. I also love the outdoors, so I enjoy the wonderful weather Pennsylvania has to offer. I live there with my son and a herd of pets.
