Today’s book is Mario Acevedo’s Nymphos of Rocky Flats. Click the cover to go to Mario’s site to read an excerpt.
Blurb: Back home in the States, the reluctantly undead former infantryman pays penance for his war-time sins—making a living as a private detective able to unravel mysteries that baffle his mortal counterparts. Now an old friend has asked him to investigate a bizarre outbreak of nymphomania at the secret government facilities in Rocky Flats, Colorado. Normally, Felix’s unorthodox—and downright supernatural—methods of extracting information are foolproof. But this time his efforts inadvertently stoke the lustful fires smoldering within the bodacious babes he’s interrogating . . . while eliciting cryptic mentions of Roswell and a top-secret Project Redlight.
P.I. Felix Gomez has finally landed a case he can really sink his teeth into. But when shadowy government agents and determined Eastern European vampire hunters get stirred in, this deadly goulash of tight lips and rampant libidos boils over . . .
You can read an excerpt here and see Mario’s other Felix Gomez books in the series as well. I admit what drew me to the first book was the title. I mean, hello, Nymphos of Rocky Flats? But the writing is what brought me back. Acevedo’s world is interesting, dark, funny and it does not take itself too seriously. It’s most certainly a new spin on vampires and I highly recommend the whole series.
So here you go, first taste is free, folks…
Today’s Question: Since this book is about vampires – who is your favorite vampire? (Can be a movie vamp or a vampire from literature)
I’ll draw the winner at noon pacific tomorrow (May 3) Winners have seven days to claim their prize, after that time, I’ll redraw for a new winner. Good luck!!

Edward Cullen from the Twilight saga is my favorite 😀

Hmm. Hard choice. Is Acheron a vampire, technically? If not, then probably Zsadist or Vishous of the BDB. I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Lestat as he was in The Vampire Lestat and The Tale of the Body Thief, too.

I love Edward in the Twilight series and Acheron though not sure he is considered a vampire and love Z in Blackdagger Brotherhood (JR Ward) so I can’t just pick one.

I think I am going to go with Gary Oldman in Dracula on the screen and one of Shiloh Walker’s print vampires.

Tough call for me to choose between Angel and Spike. I think Angel edges out Spike for me. However, they are both delicious! 😈

Angel comes to mind right quick.
Wraith from Ward’s book

I think my favorite vampire has to be between print version of Dracula and Laurell Hamilton’s Asher – just because! 🙂

Brann Oâ€™Ciardha, from Jory Strong’s Syndelle’s Possession. Gotta love a vamp who knows how to work magic so well. So powerful.

I have the first book of this series in my to be read pile here! I remember reading the blurb in the store and starting to read this one and loved it. I put it back, but my hubby took it back out for me to get! He’s a sweetie. Now I must read soon!
Its hard to pick favorite vamps from books I read (I never saw a movie, but did see MOONLIGHT on TV and so upset they canceled it after one year. Mick was so good and yummy!) In books, recently I read MICHAEL by Angela Cameron and it was so good! I’m about to read JONAS soon. They are in ebook at Ravenous. Going to check on others here mentioned too!
