The tale of two writers

Bonnie Vanak: Spent last night doing dishes, talking to her agent, feeding the dogs, trying to work up energy to write by thinking dark thoughts about dark characters, failing that, watching TV while thinking dark thoughts about dark characters, then hitting the sack, only to get out of bed and stay up until 2:30 a.m. because Tia was having a very bad night. Finally gave her a half tab of Valium upon which she snoozed on the bathroom floor (the dog, not Bonnie). Results: Bonnie got 3 hours of sleep and feels this a.m. like a hockey puck in a Panthers game.

Blair Valentine: Spent last night daydreaming about her upcoming Ellora’s Cave December book called Captive Mate, admiring her nails, lusting after Gerard Butler in her heart, (the model for Surrender the Night, her vampire quickie), and thinking Bonnie needs to lighten up as her writing is too damn dark and she needs a shotglass of humor in her life. Woke up to discover Surrender the Night received a very nice review (5 cupids) from Cupid’s Library, which she is urging Bonnie to paste below. Blair is pouting because Bonnie won’t cave in to her demands to write funny erotica anymore.

Grow up Blair. That’s life.

Both Blair and Bonnie thank Luisa of Cupid’s Library for the very lovely review.

Surrender the Night by Blair Valentine
Review by Luisa at Cupid’s Library

"When I read the description of this book, it looked like just another vampire story. Let me tell you, the description from the publisher does not do this book justice. It doesn't say what a fun, unique story this is. Surrender the Night is a completely different vampire story, with new twist to this genre and not your skinny size two heroine! I had a wonderful time reading this one; it was fun to read without being over the top. Even if Lily is a vampire, she is easy to identify with. This may be a quickie, but it doesn't lack anything.....

Blair Valentine has a quirky sense of humor, that shows through in this book. This is her second release from Ellora's Cave and I hope to read more of her work in the future.Paranormal and vampire lovers will love this totally different and sexy vampire story. If you're looking for a quick and fun read don't hesitate to pick up Surrender the Night! "
