CONTEST! Win "Jessica's Guide To Dating On The Dark Side" by Beth Fantaskey

Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark SideThe WINNER is IN THE HAMMOCK BLOG!!

The undead can really screw up your senior year . . .
Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancĂ©. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire war—and save Lucius’s soul from eternal destruction. YA Fiction

Since this book is about marrying a vampire, we'll stick with that theme. To enter tell me which vampire you would like to meet or date/marry.

My picks would be Shane from Jeri Smith-Ready's WVMP vampire series, Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse series and Cat Crawford from Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress Series. I suppose I could include Edward from Twilight but only if I was a vampire too - he loosened up a lot once Bella was turned - a little to possesive for my taste before :-)

The contest runs from today 1/18/2010 to Sunday 1/24/2010 11:59pm EST.

  1. I think I'd date Carlos Rivera from L.A. Bank's Vampire Huntress Legend series. He's a mix of sexiness and bad-ass hunk that just gets me whenever I read the books =) He's even got some sweet tendencies that always makes things better! Marriage is definitely not out of the question for the future =)

    Thanks so much for the contest,

  3. I've gotta stick with the classics and say I'd love to meet Dracula.

  4. I'd love to enter this contest!! Thanks for hosting! I'd like to meet Emmett Cullen, I think, he's such a cutie!

  7. David from 'Lost Boys' (1987) Kiefer Sutherland

    the same movie. Both nice to look at. :)

  8. Rev. ~ J.R. Ward
    Bastien ~ Lynsay Sands
    Jean-Luc ~ L K Hamilton

    There are others I'm not thinking of right now I'm sure.. Just to meet though..

  9. Oh I forgot Eddy Murphy in Vampire in Brooklyn.
    He looked good with long locks, I have a thing about guys with long clean hair. :)

  10. Currently I'd have to say Ethan Sullivan from the Chicagoland vampire series by Chloe Neill, I just read the first 2 books and loved them!

  11. Hi guys!

    All great choices....haven't read a few of those series (Vampire Academy or Chicago Land series)They are on my...very long list....of books to read.
    I'll be picking the winner and posting in the morning.
    Look for it because it will be small so as not to detract fromt he auction post.

  12. I'm not big on watching "vampires", I much rather be reading about them. "Keifer Sutherland", as David on "The Lost Boys", definitely would get my throat vote to be a bloodthirsty date for me!

  13. I would most likely choose Bones from Jeaniene Frost Night Huntress. He just sounds so manly and sexy. But I agree with Dawn on meeting Alice that would be cool.

  14. Thanks! for visiting and entering the contest.....all great choices. I think I would want to hang out with Alice too! and I forgot Eric from Charlaine Harris!

    Congratulations inthehammockblog!
