The first book of the Immortal Hearts of San Francisco, introducing rockstar vampires and werewolves in a dark romantic story that has a twist at the end.


Cain (key-an) DeMarco, a sexy rockstar billionaire vampire has lived in San Francisco’s prestigious Cliff Side neighborhood in his beautiful mansion overlooking both the San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean for seventy years. Happily – or so he thought. Until the rare beauty that is Magdalena De la Rosa sits down at one of the front row tables in Club Royal where he and his band perform once a week.

Magdalena De la Rosa has it all – Bachelor’s degree in journalism, a job she loves in California, a gorgeous apartment in San Francisco, and a dream guy. Except her boyfriend lives and works in Sacramento – an hour and a half drive from the city Magdalena has always fantasized about living in. All her dreams change, however, when she and her girlfriend find their way into an upscale nightclub and she’s suddenly swept off her feet by the lead singer o that night’s performing rock band, The Lost Boys.

Sparks ignite between the two until a threat that was thought to no longer exist returns to wreak havoc on Cian’s and Magdalena’s lives. Will the temptation to be together outweigh the reality of what Cain must do to keep Magdalena safe from harm?

Tempted by a Vampire is a great story that tells of the past, that there is romance, violence, and drama. I cannot wait to read the other books because I want to learn more about Cian’s brother, Lane. Cian appears hot, and of course, protective of the one he sees as his soul mate. I always love those type of stories.

Between the story and the way it was written, I score it 5/5. Great job Susan!!!

Friday Fun Day

Image result for friday funday meme IT’S FRIDAY!!! You know what that means?  It is Friday FunDay.  What is Friday FunDay you ask? It is a day where you can just sit back and relax.  Relax by watching a TV show (for example, I am currently watching The Big Bang Theory), while creating this post, and drinking coffee, of course. I want to keep all of you in mind.  I want to include you into my Fridays.  It is after all my favorite day of the week (besides Saturday hee hee).

What have I done this week?  Well, I got the The Cruel Prince by Holly Black, which was released a couple of weeks ago.  I cannot get enough of anything fairies regardless if it William Shakespeare fairies or the ugly Karen Marie Moning Fairies.

We are in the mode where we are packing and moving out of our place and into a smaller place while we (slowly) build our house. I am coming up with little ideas for my reading/office area, and at the same time, thinking of what to do this summer. Such as going to events, explore different book stores, etc.

I am already stoked about going to some events this year so far: Berkeley author event (April), Creature Con (June), San Francisco Author Event (August). I FINALLY got my Facebook page up and running. It only took me a month. For some reason, it kept getting disabled. So, I had to do it a second time, and SUCCESS!!!

What am I currently reading? I have a few. Chasing the Light by Sherry Hutchinson, a couple of books from Josh Hancock, and an audio book by Jackson Baer called The Earth Bleeds Red.

I have lost my job so I am now able to focus on my family and my writing. Writing and reading is what I love, so I can focus on it at the same time focus on my child. I am not on the computer as long (9 hours before!!!), so I am able to limit myself now, so my migraines are not as bad. I am almost done with school (yeehaw).

Tell me, what are you currently reading? What do you do on a Friday?
