Contest: TASTE ME by Tamara Hogan

Hey, Biters!  As we continue with our fabulous giveaway week, it is an extreme pleasure for me to be able to feature debut author, Tamara Hogan's TASTE ME.  I was given opportunity to read this book in advance and I have to say it blew me away.  Gorgeous detail, unique and interesting characters, and sexual tension that literally steams off the pages.  This one is about sex, demons and rock n' roll, baby!  One commenter will be drawn to receive an autographed copy from the author, so show her some love in the comments!

CSI meets True Blood in a new urban fantasy romance series with a supernatural crimes unit...

Winner of a 2009 Daphne du Maurier Award for Mystery and Suspense, and a 2009 Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® finalist, Taste Me is the first book in a gritty, fast-paced, sexy urban fantasy romance series set in a world where incubi, sirens, Valkyries, vampires, werewolves and faeries live undetected alongside humankind. But in these days of burgeoning technology and surveillance, keeping their true natures under humanity's radar is more challenging than ever. What will happen when humanity learns that not only are they not alone--but that the creatures who haunt their dreams and nightmares are...real?  


He wants her so badly he can taste it…
Ever since their tempestuous fling years ago, incubus security guru Lukas Sebastiani has known that siren Scarlett Fontaine was meant to be his. But when you’re a sex demon with an insatiable desire, relationships are…complicated.
Her siren song brings men to their knees…
Rock star Scarlett Fontaine desperately needs a break after a grueling tour. But with murder and mayhem surrounding her band, and Lukas guarding her body, life is going to be anything but peaceful.
With danger everywhere, and their feelings for each other in turmoil, Scarlett and Lukas may be destroyed by deceit and mistrust if they don’t find their way back into each other’s arms…

Gah....Another book for the TBR list :-)
Thankfully I took this summer off from college. I will be taking full advantage of our backyard for tanning and reading (not necessarily in that order!)
