Books: Of Blood and Sorrow by Christine Rains

I'm excited to be promoting Christine's latest novel Of Blood and Sorrow today!
Blurb: Erin Driscol works the perfect job consoling fellow demons by feeding off their grief at Putzkammer & Sons Funeral Home.

When fledgling vampire Nicolas Reese comes to Erin for help, she learns the truth behind the legends and hides him from his sire and the vampire hunters who seek him. But when the Putzkammers begin to die one by one, Erin is caught between her act of kindness and the need to save her adopted family. Only by facing her own personal demons can she stop the slaughter and still rescue Nicolas from his dark fate.
Sounds exciting, and I can't wait to read it!
Now let's learn a bit about a couple of key characters:

CORT & PAUL PUTZKAMMER

Brothers with the honored Blood of Ammut

Cort: The eldest son of Aleo and Bolona Putzkammer.
Paul: The second son.

Cort: Confident and focused. Handles the business side of the funeral home.
Paul: Introverted and quiet. A skilled mortician.

Cort: Built like a viking warrior.
Paul: Built like a bean pole.

Cort: Single and thoroughly enjoying seeing several women.
Paul: Single and would rather work.

Cort: Overprotective of Erin.
Paul: Overprotective of Erin.

Favorite line from Cort: “Hessa is the top vampire in this region. We can only imagine how powerful she is.” He rumbled deep in his chest. “And she threatened Erin. Holy shit isn’t going to do it tonight.”

Favorite line from Paul: “But please, leave for me. For Cort. That vampire, Hessa, she’ll come for us
all.”

Tidbit from the author: You might have noticed I have a very limited list of actors in my head. Though these two images don't look exactly like Cort and Paul, I just couldn't imagine casting anyone else in their places.

Tidbit from M: I can always go for the second fellow there. ;-P

These brothers sound charming in their own way, and I love that they're overprotective! Looking forward to reading this book!

Heather Holden said...

So intrigued by these two already! Love how they both have an overprotective side, despite being so different in personality otherwise...

Christine Rains said...

Thanks so much, Shelley. :)

Christine Rains said...

Heather, thanks! I think Erin brings that out in people even though she doesn't want to!

Cherie Reich said...

Congrats, Christine! And I can see them playing Cort and Paul. It's hard to pick actors to portray our characters.

Christine Rains said...

Thanks, Cherie! Yeah, but to think of all my favorite actors on one set that I might possibly get to be on! *LOL*
