First, a wee bit of housekeeping. Both “Suzanne” and “Susannah” are participating in Night Owl Reviews’ Hallowpalooza Reader Scavenger Hunt, which kicked off yesterday. There are TONS of prizes. Click here to scavenge away!
Also, I have a blog post up at Romance Magicians today if you have a chance to head over. I’m talking about one of my favorite subjects—the weather (and crazy faeries). Click here to find it.
But I digress…Today, join me in welcoming author Traci Douglass to the blog. Traci is here for our “Preternatura Q&A” and to talk about her brand new book, BLOOD BOUND, released on Monday.
ABOUT TRACI: Traci is a USA Today Bestselling Author of Contemporary and Paranormal Romance. Her stories feature sizzling heroes full of dark humor, quick wits and major attitudes and heroines who are smart, tenacious, and always give as good as they get. She holds an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University and she loves animals, chocolate, coffee, hot British actors, and sarcasm—not necessarily in that order.

ABOUT BLOOD BOUND: Anna Frost had a bad feeling when her twin sister, Liz, told her she’d run off with a member of the notorious Otherworld biker gang, the Blood Ravagers. And her unease skyrockets when her sister subsequently vanishes. The police have no authority and little interest, so Anna decides to take matters into her own hands by infiltrating the group to discover for herself what happened to Liz, where she meets….Dante, half demon, half human. A mix of two worlds, accepted by neither, he’s had no choice but to learn the hard way how to play whatever side of the fence kept him alive during his nearly 500 years of existence. Now, as second-in-command of the Blood Ravagers biker gang, his survival depends on keeping his humanity a secret. Dante’s ultimate goal is to fulfill the vows he made over two centuries ago to create a world where half-breeds can live in safety and equality….But when sheltered schoolteacher Anna finds unexpected, white-hot passion in the arms of Dante, will her quest for the truth cost him more than he ever bargained for? Or will they find a way to save Liz – and their love – together?
And now let’s put Traci to the test
Give us the “elevator pitch” for BLOOD BOUND.
Forbidden, white-hot passion flares between a sheltered schoolteacher and a half-breed demon who must work together to find her missing sister and achieve his goals for justice. Supernatural meets Sons of Anarchy with a touch of Star Wars Space Bar and Wild Wild West thrown in for fun.
What is your favorite scene in the book?
Hmm. It’s probably a tie between the opening scene because it gives you a great picture of the gang’s hangout, Seven, and the first time Anna sees Dante, and the first POV scene from Dante. It really gets inside his head and also gives you some fun perspective on Basher, my villain.
