We Interrupt This Program For... A Giveaway

Hey there, folks! I know I'm doing thriller recs this week, right? But the lovely Katrina is offering up two (2) copies of Meg Cabot's latest, Insatiable.

Here's some info on the book:

Vampires. This isn’t the first time they’ve taken a bite out of popular culture. And with INSATIABLE (June 8), #1 New York Times bestselling author Meg Cabot blends trend with tradition as only she can to create a fresh, funny, pulse-pounding and poignant update of our darkest eternal Gothic romance, Dracula.

Sick of hearing about vampires? So is Meena Harper. But as a writer for Insatiable, the second-hottest daytime soap (thanks to her burdensome if lucrative psychic ability to see into the future and determine how people are going to die), Meena’s being forced to use a vampire story line to boost ratings. But, just as Insatiable is switching to a vampire theme to attract a younger demographic, a spate of chilling murders-by-exsanguinations grips New York City.

Enter Lucien Antonescu, a sexy, melancholic Romanian history professor / vampire who recognizes that the murders are the work of rogue vampires who have broken away from his order (Lucien happens to be the son of Vlad the Impaler, whom Bram Stoker gave such a bad rep). Lucien's opposition: Alaric Wulf, a sympathetic detective from the Palatine Guard, who hopes to use Meena and her prophetic gift to stop the murders and track down Lucien. Unfortunately for Alaric, Meena is a little in love with Lucien.

Meg Cabot winningly applies her trademark likable fallible protagonists and breezy storytelling. With
INSATIABLE, she injects some much needed Gothic romance (and humor) back into the vampire oeuvre, and once again stakes her claim as the “master of her genre.”

I love Meg Cabot. Seriously everything she touches is gold. I'm a huge fan of her Lizzie Nichols and Heather Wells series and am super excited that she's diving into the vampire world here.

Good luck!
