Drooling is out for vampires...no blood dripping down cheeks! It's totally not cool.
Bright red lips, ice white teeth, beautiful fangs, and a cherry wedged between the teeth--totally cool. :)
Vampires have nice smooth faces because they're more...cultured. But vampires with beards remind me of werewolves, not vampires. Totally cool for werewolves, uncool for vampires.
Black shadows around eyes to denote scariness or something--totally uncool. I have dark shadows when I don't get enough sleep. It's not sexy. Vampires are sexy. Even when they're evil. That's what makes them scary. They're just too compelling, and you wouldn't think there's anything wrong until they reveal nice ice white fangs and then...it's probably too late. So black shadows uncool. No shadows, totally cool.
More later...realized I have to go into work an hour earlier today and I'm not ready. Plus Thoughts in Progress gave me a super award today and I wanted to thank Mason for it, but also to say I will do my duty to do what I'm supposed to do...but ack, got to run! :) Thanks again!

Well, there aren't any in the story, it's strictly a Highlander historical romance...the sequel to Winning the Highlander's Heart and coming in March, as long as the release date doesn't change. :)
Lady Ellis Dunbarton didn't think life could get any worse, until her loving cousin dies and Ellis learns she is to wed the man her cousin was to marry. Not by a change of contract, though. Instead, by deceit. If he learns she is not her cousin, Agnes, her life is forfeit. Crossing the Irish Sea, her ship sinks, she survives, but temporarily loses her memories. When a Highland Clan takes her in, she remembers one thing. She must flee at all costs and disappear. She knows if her family learns of her whereabouts, her life is over.
I'm off to work in the bitter cold, and since we were closed for the holidays, I'm sure it's going to be a Monday at work. Have a super Monday!!!

Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
Nymph Rating: 5 Nymphs
Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Amazon Nymph
Deadly Liaison has some very interesting twists throughout the story. I loved the way the author wove the relationship between Tezra and Daemon into it. There were some get-the-ice cubes love scenes between the two, but the mystery and the twists about all the killings and the investigation kept my interest throughout. I recommend this book to anyone that likes a good mystery suspense story. This is one I will read again.
"I thoroughly enjoyed the way Deadly Liaisons pulled me in immediately. The action in this book is awesome. I found the writing tight, the plot thick, and the characters strong. When the vampire flew to the rooftop, I could almost hear the sound as he darts in the air, the swishing sound practically sweeping over the pages. Terry Spear writes a gripping story that holds this reader spellbound. The display of emotions that trigger in Tezra, after ten years of losing her parents, really shines, and this reader wanted to share in her loss. I was pulled in with the fighting scenes along with Tezra and Daemon. The excitement and intensity that springs forth in the battles with the vampires is remarkably crafted."

Here it is Christmas Day and way before all the munchkins arrive or wake, I'm up doing my usual, writing. And researching.
The day before yesterday I was researching the timing of the phases of the moon in Colorado during spring, gunshot wounds, and what was the last name of the deputy in Destiny of the Wolf???
Yesterday, I was looking into fines and penalties for illegal hunting.
Today, it's the differences between dogs and wolves. Although I've researched these all before, each time I write a new book, I pour over new information and find new little details that make the stories more real. I just added a couple to Wolf Fever I'm sure everyone will find fascinating! At least I did. But I can't give my secrets away. Just like Christmas. :)
Next week I'll be guest blogging at Fresh Fiction, and I'll be somewhere else also...the date and place to be announced. I just have to come up with a blog. Since Deadly Liaisons is out this next month, although if you order it now, it's 33% off the cover price at Amazon, and it's now shipping by Dec 30, I'll probably blog about vampires. :)
And if I can make some real progress on Wolf Fever, I hope to send the newsletter out this Sunday.
But enough chatter when I should be writing, and wanted to wish everyone the merriest of Christmases! Hope everyone has a day to remember...in a good way, I must add!!!

This is the fourth book of Ms Spear's werewolf series. I have read everyone of them and in my opinion they just keep getting better and better. Ms. Spear puts a different spin on the werewolf story. With this series you have romance, adventure and a paranormal twist. If you like your werewolf stories with a bit of a bite, then pick this series up now. ~~~Night Owl Romance, Tammy King
