Author Zoe Winters Takes over Sparklys!

Blood Lust Blog Tour!! 

Zoe Winters 

Hello Lovelies, im honoured today to have author Zoe Winters take over Sparklys, to tell you all about her latest release 'Blood Lust' I LOVE this series!
My reviews:

Without further ado, please welcome Zoe to Sparkly's! And read careful for her awesome Giveaway! 

Blog Takeover... and Giveaways!

Hi, I'm Greta Lawson. I'm a werecat (though we prefer the term "therian"), and a character from Zoe Winters' book, Blood Lust. Zoe has a big blog tour schedule this week and she's being a prima donna. So she left me in charge here. She's such a stupid girl. Apparently she's not clear on the fact that I have a slight issue with her. It's not wise for her to leave me in charge of any portion of her promo right now.

You see, Dayne, my man... is jealous that she likes her other male characters better than him. And to that I say... so? She's not all that. He's ignored me all week obsessing over this issue. Sure, he says: "Oh you know I love you, honey". But he makes sure Zoe isn't nearby when he says it.

So I'm just going to get this out now. Zoe Winters is the meanest author I know. She didn't have to write Kept with me trapped in Cary Town and dependent on a sorcerer with a bad reputation to save me. And she also didn't have to make me look like such a schizophrenic psycho.

I mean, I was in heat. I can't help the mood swings. I hadn't had my pill. So yeah, I'm going to be brave, then scared, then snarky, then angry. I'm going to be all over the place. Haven't you ever seen a hormonal woman? We become completely irrational.

And before you tell me I sound pretty insane right now, let me just say... I haven't had my pill. I'm letting the heat happen again. Zoe is no competition against my magic pheromones. I intend to keep Dayne in the house all weekend reminding him why he likes kitties so much.

Oh yeah, I was supposed to promo the stupid contest. Zoe is giving away a newest generation Amazon Kindle with 3G wireless. You can go to her blog to check out the details. The contest is almost over, but there's still time to enter if you hurry.

She'll also be giving away a signed copy of Blood Lust to one commenter here. I bet you're overjoyed about that.

Here are the details about the book:

It’s all about the blood...

Comprised of three novellas, Blood Lust gives readers a snapshot look at the world of the Preternaturals Series. (Future installments of the series will be novels.)

As a cat therian (shifter), Greta's blood is already sought after to enhance spells and potions, but due to a quirk of her birth, her blood is potent enough to kill for. When her tribe plans to sacrifice her, Greta must ally herself with Dayne, the dangerous local sorcerer, and the only person strong enough to protect her.

For a vampire, Anthony isn't a picky eater, but he's drawn to Charlee's blood more than any other. Like a fine wine saved for a special occasion, he's denied himself this pleasure. But one night, high from the potent magical blood of another, he claims his prize and loses control. Ashamed of almost killing the one woman who means anything to him, he wipes her memory of the event. When Charlee awakens with complete amnesia, Anthony is the only one who can clean up the mess he's made.

Because of the vampiric blood that has run through her veins since birth, Jane has been a target for vampires who resent a human being "kindred." She's forced to disguise herself as a vampire groupie to appease them and safeguard her life. When she's abruptly given to Cole, the leader of the werewolf pack, to satisfy a gambling debt, she discovers the blood running through her veins has a far greater impact on her destiny than she ever imagined.

Print and ebook copies are available at and (other retailers coming soon.)

Buy links are available from Zoe's blog (The top stickied Amazon contest post.)

Hey Greta,
I totally understand you and I think every woman will. It's our right to be irrational some times. And I'm sure Zoe likes you even if she was a bit mean to you at first. She gave you your man after all. Have fun with your weekend plans. ;)

Get over it, Greta. Zoe rocks.

Hi Greta and Zoe,
You know what, Greta? It's probably good that Dayne isn't Zoe's favorite. You have him all to yourself that way! (Except for us Blood Lust readers, who I'm sure, like Dayne just as much as Anthony or Cole)

Would love to win a print copy of Blood Lust.

Fantastic post! This sounds like a hot read! I'm adding it to my list.

Zoe Winters said...

Awww thanks to everybody for standing up for me against my characters! LOL. She's just taken this whole thing WAY too personally. I'll be doing the drawing tomorrow evening (Eastern time zone) for the signed print copy! Whoo, almost done with this blitz tour! It's been a crazy week. Thanks for all those who have followed me this week!

Greta, love your post! I think Zoe would be smart to stay far away from Dayne.

I read your story already, and loved it. The whole series is terrific! Blood Lust rocks!
