hard to tell who is good and who is bad - The Vampire, The Handler, and Me by Eileen Sheehan

"This debut vampire author is definitely one you're going to want to keep your eye on, as from what I've heard this is certainly just the beginning for her. There is a little bit of romance, a little b it of action and a little bit of suspense all mixed up in a whole lot of awesome. I highly recommend to fans of the genre and fans of a good read in general ." - Goodreads, Paige

GUEST POST

Hello, my name is Eileen Sheehan and I'm an author of fantasy romace. I love all things paranormal and out of the box but I don't enjoy horror. I'm too much of a romantic. 

What I enjoy about writing fantasy romance is that fact that it allows me to insert all my childhood dreams and hopes about the quintisential man I wanted to grow up to meet or maybe even the woman I almost am but not quite, wanted to be but wasn't allowed, or even the exact opposite of what I'd ever want to be. The sky's the limit when you're dealing with the world of fantasy. I think mixing it with a little reality creates a story for me that I can fall into and believe even if the characters are vampires or ghosts or witches who teleport. Besides, just because I might not have met up with someone like my characters doesn't mean they couldn't actually exist somewhere, does it? 

If you think and feel the same as I do, I'd love to hear your thoughts.

EXCERPT

“My name is Nevi, Nevi Sharpe,” he said with a deep, sultry accent. “May I ask with whom I have the pleasure of sharing scratch-off tickets?” 

I wanted to answer him but I was still stuck on stupid. I opened my mouth to speak and absolutely nothing came out. 

How embarrassing. 
How ridiculous. 
How mortifying. 
He was just a man, after all. What was my issue? 

I just couldn’t move past the sense of magnificence that permeated the air around him. It was both electrifying and nerve wracking. 

“You have a phone call,” blurted the bland voice of Miss Congeniality as she approached my newly discovered god-man with a cordless phone. 

“Please excuse me,” he murmured in my direction as he snapped the phone from the clerk’s hand, obviously unhappy to be disturbed. 

“Lizzy. Lizzy Ewing,” I forced past my lips as he stood up. “My name’s Lizzy Ewing.” 

I could feel flames consume my cheeks when I realized how desperate my voice must have sounded. He studied me with dancing eyes—momentarily forgetting his annoyance about the phone call.“Nice to meet you, Lizzy Ewing,” he said warmly. “Please excuse me.” 

With that, he lifted the phone unceremoniously to his ear and disappeared through a doorway behind the counter. I assumed it led to his office. At the faint sound of another door shutting behind that door, I felt I assumed right. 

The clerk shuffled through the array of lotto tickets spread out on the counter in front of me with a notable smirk on her broad, acne infested face before looking up at me. “That’ll be twenty-five dollars,” she stated smugly. 

I stood there looking at her for a brief moment while it registered with me…I was getting stuck with the entire bill of my not so private scratch-off tryst!
