Lisa's Lair

Hi everyone –


I know we just hopped in January, but it’s February now – the month of LOVE – so since I love all my readers, I thought it’d be fun to join in the Book Boyfriend fun!!!

My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop Hosted is by Reading Between the Wines Book Club& As the Pages Turn Giveaway. The hop will run from 12:01 AM February 1st through to 11:59 PM February 5th, 2012.

What better way to celebrate the month of LOVE then with your favorite book boyfriend?

Whether you have a valentine or not, the swoon worthy heroes we find in romances can’t be matched anyway! So why not put on those naughty underwear and curl up with one of these steamy reads this year instead?

Make you Valentine’s Day perfect by joining the My Book Boyfriend Giveaway Hop where fellow bloggers offer you the chance to win some of their favorite book boyfriends!

You can find the rest of the participating bloggers here…


My first Book Boyfriend was probably Lestat from Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles. Sadly she made her vampires impotent, but I was pretty sure I would be the one woman who could help Lestat “rise” to the occasion! LOL




My second book boyfriend was Darius from Christine Feehan’s Dark Fire. He was crazy alpha, but also cared for the rest of his family so he did have a soft side that stole my heart.


Recently I’ve had a flurry of Book Boyfriends. Karl from Kelley Armstrong’s Otherworld series, and Derek from her Darkest Powers Trilogy, Shane from Jeri Smith-Ready’s WVMP Vampire series, and her yummy Scottish hero Zachary from her Shade Trilogy, and these are just to name a few…


My current Book Boyfriend is Calisto from Night Walker. He has loved Kate for over 200 years, waiting for her spirit to be reborn. He finds her again in Night Walker, but the past starts to repeat itself and he’s faced with giving her up in order to save her. It’s a very dark paranormal romance, and Calisto is a brooding Spanish immortal. I really fell in love with him when I wrote the book and it’s been a thrill to hear readers are embracing him as well…


So here’s a little sneak peek at Calisto, my Book Boyfriend…


Calisto took her hand, and Kate was surprised to find her fingers lacing together with his as if they’d been made to fit together as one.

 “Walk with me?” His low voice stripped away a layer of her resolve.

Kate nodded, following him down the steps to the sand below, only stopping for a moment to leave her shoes on the landing. They walked across the cool beach without saying a word, hand in hand, and Kate watched the haze float in atop the salt water. It was eerie and beautiful all in the same moment.

“You are shivering.”

Calisto’s voice added to the tremors that pulsed through her body.

Why did he have to be so perfect? He looked at her like she was the only woman in the world.

 “Am I?”

 He smiled, raising their joined hands to place a tender kiss on her knuckle, and then tugged off his coat and draped it over her shoulders.

 “Is that better?”

 Kate nodded, no longer able to speak. His masculine scent surrounded her, and before she could stop herself, she pulled his coat so tight, the cold lining spread gooseflesh across her skin.

 He slid the backs of his cool fingers down her cheek, his lips hinting at a smile. “Good.”

 Kate tilted her chin up. When he bent and brushed his lips against hers, her breath caught. Her pulse raced and electricity shot through her veins. Her skin warmed. Had she ever wanted anyone this badly?

 She brought her hand to his chest. His chiseled muscles responded to her touch, and a moan escaped her as he clutched her tighter. Calisto’s fingers slid through her hair, and her lips parted, her tongue tasting him, tangling with his until her knees buckled.

 Dear God, this man could kiss.

 I hope you enjoyed the sneak peek, and now for the fun and prizes!!!

 First Prize Winner – Will receive an e-Book copy of Night Walker, Book 1 in the Night Series!

Second Prize Winner – Will receive an eBook copy of Across the Veil!

    • Hi Julianne –

      Thanks for commenting and following me everywhere! 🙂

      I wanted to write a vampire book, but I wanted a west coast story. I finally decided to create my own breed of immortals that originated from the Mayans and the more I researched, the more Night Walker came together.

      Calisto is a really tortured hero and I absolutely loved writing him!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  • I have had many book boyfriends over the years. It all started with Mr. Darcy (Pride and Prejudice) and has recently ended with Jacelynd (Icarus; The Kindred).

    The book ICARUS is told in first person and I have rarely wanted to be a character as bad as I wanted to be Jessica Slate. Not because I wanted to be a vampire assassin, but because I the love as hot as that needs to be experienced firsthand.
