Hey my fellow vampire lovers, and while I’m at it, my fellow alpha-male lovers (cause let’s face it, vampires or not, if they’re bossy, growlie and tough, they’re right up our alley) ;)  I’ve got a fun exclusive interview with Larissa’s Moonbound Clan vampires, on today’s “Book Bites” blog-stop.

Plus a giveaway for 5 SIGNED copies of her upcoming release “Bound by Night” (which is book #1 in her latest sexy vampire series entitled: “The Moonbound Clan Vampires” and will be released September 24th). I’m a HUGE Larissa Ione fan and devoured her “Demonica” series, so I can’t wait to read these!

Welcome to the BOOK BITES TOUR: Bound By Night by Larissa Ione

Hungry the week before publication date? Look out for the map which will outline dates for the BOOK BITES TOUR! Five websites will feature BOOK BITES—original content not found in the book—daily snacks to curb readers’ pre-pub hunger!

Check out the tasty BOOK BITES map, which will be revealed Monday, September 16th at XOXO After Dark,

And will stop at Maryse’s Book Blog on Wednesday, September 18th, see you then! <—- Hey, That’s ME!!! And you’re here!!

Here’s the blog-stop map for all of Larissa’s “Bound By Night” visits (click it to see full size), and… scroll below for the interview, and giveaway, right below the map! There are two more stops this week, so check them all out!

(P.S. I think I already have a crush on “Myne”. First, his name rocks, second, he’s so obviously “no-nonsense”, and third…. he doesn’t listen to authority. Rules? *pffffff* I think it’s cause HE thinks HE is the authority. ;) ) *sigh*

Oh wait… but “Baddon” and being on the back of his bike? A biker vampire? YES PLEASE!!!!! Baddon = baddass? *grins*

Ready for that interview?

Six Vampires. Two Questions. Twelve Answers.

Contrary to popular human belief, vampires don’t all look the same. They don’t sound the same. Give them all the same question, you’ll get different answers.

Let’s try that, shall we? I’ve gathered six vampires from MoonBound Clan. Hopefully they’ll behave, but dealing with these people is always a gamble.

So let’s get started!

Q: What’s your favorite drink?  And you can’t say blood. And no cussing. Let’s keep this rated PG-13.

Hunter: Whiskey. And vodka. And tequila. Basically, if it comes in a liquor bottle, I’ll drink it.

Riker: Yeah, Hunt’s all class. Give me a good handcrafted beer any day. And I mean any day.

Myne: Blood. What? It was a stupid question. We’re f*cking vampires.

Katina: Can I side with Myne on this?

Baddon: Jack Daniel’s, and don’t mix it with that damned cola shit.

Grant: Kool-Aid. I’m still searching for the best flavor and sugar combination.

This might have been a mistake, but let’s try again. Some of you don’t follow instructions very well.

(There are many glares and grumbles. Vampires can be touchy.)

Q: What’s your idea of a perfect date?

Hunter: As long as we’re both naked at the end of it, I don’t care.

Katina: *rolls eyes at Hunter* You’re a true romantic. Me? I’ll take my date hunting. Nothing gets the hormones all jittery like taking down a vampire poacher. Afterward, we’ll take a dip in the lake and make some waves. All night long, baby.

Riker: I don’t date. Next question. And where’s my beer?

Myne: *opens his mouth to reveal shiny titanium fangs* My perfect date has a thing for pain.

Baddon: I want my female on the back of my Harley, the engine vibration purring between her thighs. When we stop, I’ll be the one purring between her legs.

Grant: I’d take her flowers and make her dinner. I make a mean poached salmon. Then we’d watch a horror movie. Humans getting slaughtered is a massive turn-on.

Um, ew. Okay, that’s enough for today. We don’t want to frighten readers.

Too much…

FUN!!!! I’ve always been a vampire girl and this just solidifies it.

So who wants a signed copy of this book?

How to enter for a chance to win it? Just leave a comment below telling me YOUR favorite drink and perfect date, and Friday night (Friday September 20th, 2013) by 10pm EST, I will randomly select five winners.

The winner will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address, so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance. These books will be sent to the winners directly by the publisher.

Awww… I’m from the Philippines. I guess I’m already out for this one. But I still want to share my answers. XD

My fave drink is Margarita , Tequila and Vodka.

My idea of a perfect date: Well, if it’s with any of Ione’s characters (from all of her series), it’s already perfect. I mean, what else can you ask for? They’re like, the perfect date you could ask for. *grins* You didn’t say it has to be realistic. :P

Oh, and by the way, I love all of the vamps! Especially Myne and Hunter. And I think Grant is cute!

I think my perfect date might have been this past Saturday. We hung out, walked around a local park and I got a teddy bear from Build A Bear.

I love Caramel Swirl Iced Coffee XX in the morning, and Jose Cuervo Margaritas at night! I haven’t been on a date in so long because I’m always busy with the kiddos. I would just love the chance to get dressed up pretty and go out and have a romantic night, while also being comfortable with each other =)

shot of jack daniel’s and a walk anywhere( the beach, through town, NOT the woods) although i have to agree with baddon about the motorcycle thing. ( just the motorcycle, nothing else.)

Zara September 18, 2013 at 9:13 PM

Lemon lime and bitters (OMG YUMMMMMM), date would probably involve a beach view and have a romantic feel to it. Would love to win a copy Maryse.

Brenda Starling September 18, 2013 at 9:53 PM

I have to agree with Baddon, Jack Daniels all the way; however, I prefer to mix mine with Diet Dr. Pepper. Or a Green Apple Smirnoff Ice.

My perfect date would be cruisin with Baddon on his bike. Where we ended up, no one knows!

At the moment my favorite drink is sprite zero and Pinot Grigio with frozen raspberries as my ice cubes! Refreshing! I would love to take this drink on the back deck and listen to music, maybe a little dancing, watch the sun set, and have him take me to bed:)

Lauren September 18, 2013 at 10:13 PM

I love anything with whiskey but I usually get a whiskey sour. Dinner, movie and flowers are great dates.

Heather W September 18, 2013 at 10:51 PM

Favorite drink is a Tequila Sunrise while the perfect day would be one where both parties ended up more than just satisfied.

iced tea; dinner at a nice restaurant

Becky September 19, 2013 at 1:03 AM

Favorite drink: White Russian!

Date: I think a quiet dinner at a nice restaurant, then maybe a walk on the beach :)

LadyVampire September 19, 2013 at 3:53 AM

An ice cold Dr. Pepper would be my drink. And a lovely date would consist of flowers sent to the house, picking me up in the morning to go out hiking in the woods but with a basket filled for our picnic, then back to the city for a change of clothes before some walking and talking before we go to a movie. Afterwards a nice romantic dinner.

I really wish I could say I like some strong, powerful drink… However, I tend to stick with the fruity stuff. X-Rated and Red Bull (YUM!) – now I want some… Anywho, my perfect date would’ve already come to pass if it weren’t for the name-I-shall-not-call-this-person-in-the-nature-of-keeping-this-PG-13 that rear-ended us on our way home from dinner at the Hyatt in Milwaukee, WI, followed by ice skating (which I am absolutely horrendous at by the way). We were supposed to go home to change into more comfortable clothes, then conclude the night out with bowling. However, once we were rear-ended, s*** (man, it’s hard not to cuss!!!) got real – hands were smashed through windows, erratic driving led to heart-wrenching panic, followed by a night spent waiting in the hospital. It really would’ve been perfect (he had flowers and s*** waiting at home for me)… So, I guess my perfect date would be really frickin’ low-key. We tried the fancy bs and that didn’t go so well for us.

Love a disaronno sour. Great date for me is relaxed evening at a pub.

Gloria September 19, 2013 at 5:51 AM

A White Russian for me :) And a perfect date would be anything or anywhere just as long as he makes me laugh.

Rhonda Beyer September 19, 2013 at 7:30 AM

My favorite drink is kinda lame just a good glass of sweet tea, and my favorite friday night date night would be an evening out with my hubby of 13 years. We hardly ever get out alone we have 3 boys, and a little girl on the way next Wednesday.

kim September 19, 2013 at 8:19 AM

I would love to win this! I just re-read all of the Demonica series and the Lords series. Can’t wait for Reavers story! Love her books!
I can’t remember what dates are like, been married 20+ years but love to set with a good book and a Heineken light.

Michaela September 19, 2013 at 9:41 AM

My all time favorite drink is an oatmeal cookie martini!! I LOVE cookies and this tastes like a liquid cookie with that little “something special” to give it a boost! So good!
My perfect date would consist of the beach AND city. Maybe a day at the beach, relaxing, swimming, playing beach volleyball.. And then dinner and a drink in the city, preferably NYC! :) (so I guess a day at the beach on Long Island?!)

Thanks Maryse!

Kim Crimmins September 19, 2013 at 9:48 AM

Favorite drink: very spicy bloody mary
Best date: long walk on the beach holding hands

Kellye Pickens September 19, 2013 at 10:39 AM

Ice cold bottled Coors Light….a day on a secluded beach ending with a night on the beach with ‘seclusion necessary’….

Jen September 19, 2013 at 11:23 AM

My favorite drink is a malibu and pineapple, and my perfect date would be an afternoon of zip-lining followed by dinner and a movie!

Alaina September 19, 2013 at 11:31 AM

Cranberry and Vodka…I enjoy the classic dinner and a movie date

CYP @ A Bookalicious Story September 19, 2013 at 11:50 AM

My favorite drink is tea! The Chinese ones though, I don’t really like English teas cause they’re sweeter. I prefer the natural leaves straight from China, cause each different province specialize in a specific leaf, so the ones that the provinces sell are really fragrant. :) My perfect date would be dinner on a yacht or something! ;)

Mick Murphy September 19, 2013 at 11:54 AM

My favorite drink is Torched Cherry Bacardi Rum with Sprite…it tastes like a cherry limeade and it is amazing! My favorite date would be going to the beach at night and lots of candles. Thanks for the giveaway!

Camille September 19, 2013 at 12:35 PM

Margaritas and a night out dancing!!!

Dena September 19, 2013 at 12:37 PM

Mango margaritas and sangria first and foremost!!! My favorite date is when my husband got a hotel room and he decorated it with candles and my favorite chocolate and ice cream. Since we have kids that was our alone time to sit and talk just be us. That was my favorite date ;-)

Carrie Marie September 19, 2013 at 4:56 PM

favorite drink is coffee (too many forms to list! LOL) & date … tough one, but going to have to go w/ fixing a meal & hanging out in the kitchen. : )

Jill September 19, 2013 at 8:40 PM

Favortie drink : appletini, perfect date… When I have one ill let ya know

Yvonne September 19, 2013 at 11:03 PM

Rye and coke. Perfect date would be me and any one of those vampires!

Shelbie Knight September 20, 2013 at 2:11 AM

My favorite date would be the one my Husband took me on when he found out we were expecting our first child. The day I found out, I was so excited I called my best friend to share the news. Of course, I told her I wanted to wait until my Husband was home from work to surprise him with the news, but she apparently beat me to it. Before it was time for him to get home from work, he called and asked me to meet him at the Seattle Center and told me to dress warmly. Once I got there, I was escorted to the Space Needle’s elevator and taken up to the observation desk’s restaurant. He was seated at a table, beautifully adorned with purple roses (my favorite) and had a full five-course meal brought out over the next four hours. When I questioned…yes, I questioned, what we were celebrating, thinking maybe he got a big promotion or something, he told me we were celebrating welcoming our child to the world. =) The most romantic date I’ve ever had, hands down.

When it comes to my favorite drink…I hate to say this, as it may sound boring…but, I am a Coca-Cola addict! =)

Thanks for the opportunity!
Shelbie =)

Shannon Burdsall September 20, 2013 at 11:52 AM

My favorite drink is a Strawberry Margarita or White Russians! Perfect date would be anything that includes spending time with the man I love! I would love to have a cabin up in the mountain with a hot fire, cuddled together in blankets and you get the picture from there. Then in the morning have coffee together snuggled up on the front porch!

Mindy S September 20, 2013 at 4:49 PM

My favorite drink is a cold glass of sweet tea ! My perfect date would be hmmm well after 22 years of marriage anything that doesn’t require me to cook or clean up !

Patricia September 20, 2013 at 7:01 PM

Well, my favorite drink is Ginger Ale and my perfect date would be dinner and a movie, I know it’s a classic but… *.*

Joette Hughes September 20, 2013 at 7:44 PM

My favorite drink, especially now that it is getting a little colder, is port wine with brandy mixed in (sounds odd but heavy and very warming). Speaking of warm, my favorite Friday night date is having a cozy drink in front of the fire place. Fire blaring, good relaxing music playing, and whatever else follows is just a bonus! (oh, and if the kids aren’t at home that is even better! Sorry to spoil that moment!)

Kristen Davis September 21, 2013 at 8:14 PM

Double Lagavulin, neat.

My perfect date is anytime DH and I can get out of the house, baby-free!

Zita R October 16, 2013 at 10:33 AM

My favorite drink is Grand Marnier and the perfect Friday night date is going out to dinner and then coming home and cuddling on the couch to watch a good movie.
