Immortal Beloved Blog Tour Plus A Review and a Giveaway

Hey everyone! Today We have the pleasure of hosting the second stop in Katie M. John's Immortal Beloved blog tour and the wonderful Katie has graced us with a guest post but, before the post I ( Jaime ) wanted to do a mini review of Immortal Beloved and The Forest of Adventure book 1 in the Knight trilogy.

So let me start by saying this the first two books of this trilogy are incredible! There's magic, knights, vampires, Templars, Egyptian myth, and Arthurian legends! As many of you know if especially if you follow me on twitter I'm kinda obsessed with a little show called Merlin. So when I found these books I was immediately hooked. The MC Mina  is very lovable I sometimes get annoyed with female MC's but not this one. I also completely fell in love with the love interest Blake in a huge way I mean he's a knight for Pete's sake what's not to love! There is the evil Morgan thrown into the mix and she stirs up a whole lot of bad I mean you think you know Morgan from the legend? She's way worse in these books IMO and I liked it she made both books work without her the stories would've fallen flat. I can't get into much detail for either book because I'd spoil them for you all just know that I loved them and I know you all will too! I'll post links to buy the books at the end of this post as well as a link to Katie's website.

So now onto the guest post which I think is kinda brilliant :)

Knight versus Vampires.

I want you to imagine a cool, misty morning somewhere in a forest glade. It’s dawn, and two gorgeous boys are about to fight for your love. This isn’t just an ordinary boy’s scrap – this is a duel between a Vampire and a Knight.

So, who would win? The answer is obvious – vampires: after all they are immortal! However, maybe the question aught to be who would you really like to win?

This is thing – I love vampires (I really, really do) but I wouldn’t want to marry one.
Yes, they’re great for a passionate fling but the father to my offspring? Christmas dinner with my folks?

I know vampires have all that hot ‘bad boy’ thing going – and I do so love the touch of velvet, but there is a sense that they constantly have the gloom on. Yes, intense and brooding is attractive but ALL the time? Really, crack us a smile.

But then again, a vampire laughing? Somehow it just doesn’t really work for me: a vampire corpsed over in fits of giggles just destroys the whole sexy, brooding image for me. (BTW that pun was intended!)

Then there is that whole vampire beauty – a fast route to low self esteem and feeling of inadequacy as your vampire boyfriend constantly out-sparkles you. Although, admittedly there is something very, very hot about having such a cool beau on your arm, and it would be so nice to see Ms High School Prom Queen swoon with jealousy.

So this brings me back to my original solution – knights, and here is why.

  • Broody at times, rip roaring with laughter at others.
  • Handsome and strong, but mortal so they’ll age along side you.
  • Will take you out on a dinner date rather than just nipping out for a bite.
  • Worldly and wise, but not so know it all as to outdo you in every history question of Trivial Pursuit.
  • Old fashioned enough to be charming, but willing to change.
  • Naturally hot, but with a tendency towards scruffy on down time.
  • Cultured & Sporty. (Particularly good at riding.)
  • Socially acceptable: can charm your elderly relatives at Sunday lunch without freaking them out.
  • Won’t try to kill you – although, they could if they wanted.

  1. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! Both of these books sound awesome.

  2. Great post! Knight versus Vampires. I love Vampires, the truth is I have obsession with them. But you gave me very good reasons to begin to love and the knights. Knights certainly is safer choice than the vampires. I don't know I haven't deside yet.
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  4. Hmm, knights vs. Vampires. I would have to side with knights. Every girl dreams of her knight in shining armor, so naturally, they better be hunks. Vampires are just cold and pale. Well I'm like a cracker I'm so pale, so I have no room to talk.
