HOT SUMMER NIGHTS GIVEAWAY HOP -- Author Dani Harper

Book One in the Cassie Palmer series
This blog hop is focused on sharing favorite reads. So today I'm excited to talk about mine! 

I love the supernatural, and when I'm not reading Paranormal Romance, I'm reading Urban Fantasy. At the very top of my list of favorites is anything written by Karen Chance

Chance's “Cassie Palmer” series is simply amazing. Humorous, sexy and action-packed, it races along at a breakneck pace to the very last word. Picking up one of these books is dangerous – it can’t be put down until you finish it! 

Not only is the heroine interesting, the leading men in this story are unforgettable!  

Here are some snippets of the first five books in the series:

TOUCH THE DARK – 
“I knew I was in trouble as soon as I saw the obituary.  The fact that it had my name on it was sort of a clue.”

CLAIMED BY SHADOW – 
“The jerk in question was Mircea, a five-hundred-year-old vampire whose biggest claim to fame was being Dracula's older brother. He'd also been my first crush. I hadn't cared about his family name, or that he was a first-level master and a Senate member. I'd been far more interested in the way his rich brown eyes crinkled at the corners when he laughed, in the mahogany hair that spilled over his broad shoulders and in that wickedly perfect mouth, still the most sensual I've ever seen.”

EMBRACE THE NIGHT 
“I couldn’t see Pritkin’s face very well, just a pale blur against the shadows, but he didn’t sound happy. Some people thought he had only one mode... pissed off. In reality, he had plenty of them. Over the past few weeks, I’d learned to tell the difference between real pissed off, impatient pissed off and scared pissed off. I suspected that this was the last kind. If so, that made two of us.

CURSE THE DAWN 
“He smiled at that, and then his gaze shifted to a spot over my shoulder and it faded. 'These doubts wouldn’t have anything to do with the company you’re keeping of late, would they?'

I didn’t get a chance to answer before the shop door was thrown open and a furious war mage stomped in. Pritkin spotted me and his eyes narrowed.


'You shaved my legs?!'


Mircea looked at me and folded his arms across his chest. 
I looked from one unhappy face to the other and suddenly remembered that I had somewhere else to be.”

HUNT THE MOON 
“My name is Cassie Palmer and I’ve cheated death more times than anyone has a right to expect. In the last two months, I’ve been shot, stabbed, beaten and blown up a few dozen times, and that doesn’t count all the magical ways I’ve almost been killed. I’d have been dead a long time ago if not for my friends, one of whom had just jumped off the cliff after me.

I’d have been a lot more appreciative if he hadn’t pushed me first.”

Karen Chance ALSO has a second series underway, featuring Dorina Basarab who is a dhamphir – half-human and half-vampire.  

I have to say that so far I like this new series even more than the Cassie Palmer series and I didn't think that was possible! 

Book One is Midnight’s Daughter, followed by Death’s Mistress. Fury’s Kiss will be out in October 2012, and believe me, I'm counting the days!
