Release Tour: Review & Giveaway - My Viking Vampire (Sanctuary, Texas) by Krystal Shannan

My Viking Vampire

Sanctuary, Texas

by Krystal Shannan


Bailey Ross’ world is crumbling around her. Her abusive ex, a human, is closing in on her again, and to make matters worse, a new enemy, a djinn, is stalking her. This supernatural being takes great pleasure in human pain, something Bailey has in excess thanks to her ex. If she’s caught by either, she’s as good as dead. 

Backed into a corner and desperate to escape, she does something she swore wouldn’t ever be possible again –trusting a man. And he’s a vampire.  

Protection via the sexy vampire Erick Thorson may prove to be a little more than she bargained for. Sparks fly between them and she finds herself agreeing to more than just protection. Though he has promised not to let anyone harm her, the small west Texas town is more than it seems and he may not be able to make good on his vow no matter how hard he tries. 

Will Sanctuary be the home Bailey longs for or will she have to die to find out?

Excerpt: (heat level – molten lava)
I was awash with sensations. His mouth made love to my breasts. There was no other way to describe it. He licked and sucked and nipped until I could feel my pulse pounding in my sex. It was driving me wild.
When he finally closed his mouth over one of my nipples, I gasped. Each tug sent ribbons of fire coursing through my body straight to my wet, needy core. He switched to the other and used his fingers to roll the wet nipple back and forth, exerting just enough pressure to make me start panting.
My back arched up, thrusting my breasts closer to his luxurious mouth. He nipped and pulled at the other nipple, not giving a second of reprieve. I pushed my head back and fisted handfuls of the satiny comforter, biting back a groan. I couldn’t remember the last time I was this turned on.
Warmth flooded across every inch of my skin. Full-on body blush.
He shifted so that his shaft nudged at my mound while his mouth delved up and down the lines of my throat. “Look at me.” The command rumbled from deep in his chest.
I couldn’t deny him and I opened my eyes again just as he captured my mouth, plunging his tongue deep. He leaned to the side, resting on an elbow and sliding one palm beneath my head. His grip on my skull was firm and he used the leverage to kiss even harder.
His other hand slid down the left side of my body, sending shivers of exhilaration straight to my nerve endings. I rolled my shoulders, wiggling my arms free, and wrapped my hands around his bulging ones, giving myself a little bit of leverage to push back into his all-consuming kiss, wanting to give back as much as he was giving me.
My Review:
This was a fantastic paranormal romance which has left me wanting to learn more about the unique characters living in Sanctuary, Texas!  Bailey has been running and hiding from her abusive ex-boyfriend when she finds herself being stalked by an evil Djinn.  She is rescued by Erick, a vampire, who offers her protection and invites her home to his supernatural town, Sanctuary.  Tired of running and fearing for her safety, she agrees to trust Erick with her safety and she finds herself hoping that she has made the right decision.  I love Bailey strength and compassion, even when her life has been one nightmare after another, she has never given up.  Erick is a sexy, dangerous and compassionate vampire who will do whatever it takes to keep Bailey safe.  I fell a little in love with him myself while enjoying this wonderful tale.  This well written story has romance, humor, suspense, mystery and lets not forget all the wonderful (and in some cases, kinky) characters.  I am looking forward to more tales featuring more Sanctuary residents!  ~Booklover Sue

She also makes sure to watch as many action and adventure movies as possible. The more exciting the better. Yippee-Ki-Yay.....
