Biting Cold Blog Tour & Giveaways

I’m excited to host my part The Biting Cold Blog Tour!! This tour is in celebration of the release of Biting Cold by Chloe Neill on August 7, 2012. When I first read Some Girls Bite (book #1) I became obsessed with Ethan, Merrit, Catcher and Mallory and am still a huge Chicagoland Vampire fan! If you have yet to read this series then I suggest you read it if you love Urban Fantasy with sexy romance, a drop dead sexy hero and a BadAss heroine then this is the series for you! Please be sure to visit all the other blogs on the tour so you can enter to win prizes and participate in the scavenger hunt hosted by Chloe Neill.

Turned into a vampire against her will, twenty-eight-year-old Merit found her way into the dark circle of Chicago’s vampire underground, where she learned there was more to supernaturals than met the eye—and more supernaturals than the public ever imagined.And not all the secrets she learned were for sharing—among humans or inhumans. Now Merit is on the hunt, charging across the stark American Midwest, tailing a rogue supernatural intent on stealing an ancient artifact that could unleash catastrophic evil on the world. But Merit is also the prey. An enemy of Chicagoland is hunting her, and he’ll stop at nothing to get the book for himself. No mercy allowed. No rules apply. No lives spared. The race is on.

    OMG I’ve never read any of the Chicagoland Vampire books!! I’d not ever heard of them until I got your email this morning telling me all about it. It sounds (and looks) amazing… the cover is totally awesome. So my favourite Chicagoland moment is now… my introduction to it ;)
    I’m sure you get told ALL the time, but I just LOVE LOVE LOVE your blog… it totally rocks. And those little stars that pour down when you scroll over things? Well, that’s just genius! I want a blog like yours!!!!!

    I don’t really have a specific moment. I’m rather new to the series – just finished the first book and am just onto the second but I love the world and the characters. I think this is going to be one of those series that I “push” onto my sister :P

  4. miki says:

    i like the series as a whole but if i have to remember one moment it’s when merrit fight with Gabriel in pub ( i think it was a pub) i loved how he trusted her and how she guessed what was happening before him

  5. Oooh, my fav moment? Jeeze, ummm. I love when Merit reveals her new lether outfit and sticks her sword in that vampires face, omg, what’s his name? You know, she dated him for like a hot minute. Kinda. I am bad with names, even fictional ones.

  6. amel armeliana says:

    Thank you for this awesome giveaway. Well, have to admit, that I haven’t read this series before, so I don’t know any special or favorite moments. But I’d love to read it, the story sounds great.

  29. Tanya says:

    Reading Biting Cold right now! I absolutely LOVE Merit and Ethan and Cadogan House!

  30. Damaris says:

    There are so many moments that I love from the series. When Merit and Ethan are dancing, when Merit comes down the stairs dressed up and Ethan sees her, when they’re in the library together. The list goes on and on. Chloe’s done a wonderful job on the series. It one of my favorites!!

  31. I don’t have one, yet! Thanks for the giveaway! :D

  32. Michelle Long says:

    I loved that scene where Merit steps up as Sentinel to protect Ethan from Morgan. That was a really cool moment.

  33. Sharli says:

    Thank you for the giveaway! My favorite moments are when Ethan and Merit are together in a funny situation.

  34. glamored says:

    I am very conflicted about which CLV moment is my favorite. I love First Hunger, the pizza party, the baseball, “just”, and Ethan’s return. There are two moments in Biting Cold that we, and Merit, have been waiting a very long time for, too! Gah, I can’t decide! They are all too good!

  35. whitewolfreads says:

    So far my favorite moment is when Ethan returns… The moment that Ethan died was probably one of the most agonizing moments I’ve read ever!

  36. Anna says:

    I always laugh when Merit walks in on Catcher watching his movies on the Lifetime channel. :D

  37. Crystal Guidroz says:

    My favorite moment is on the baseball diamond when Ethan mouths I Love You to Merit!!!!

  38. AmieeR says:

    I can’t choose just one! lol I have two particular fave’s the first is when he walks Merit to her door and gives her the signed baseball :)
    The second is in Twice Bitten the fighting scene where Ethan and Merit realise what a good fighting team they make :) There are many more :D Thanks for the giveaway and hosting this stop in the tour! loving the scavenger hunt :)


  39. Stephanie Grant says:

  50. Imel Cullen says:

    I love all ethan and merit moment :)

  51. Aly says:

    I loved it when Ethan and Merit sparred for the first time.

  52. Emily W. says:

    I haven’t read the series yet, so I don’t have a fave part yet.

  53. Dovile says:

    I’ve yet to read any of the Chicagoland Vampires novels, so I don’t have a favorite part yet.

  54. I’ve just started the series so I don’t have a favorite moment (yet!) but I do love that it’s in Chicago, with vampires known to people and the houses idea is cool – can’t wait to get more into the series :) (I really love Neill’s Dark Elite series.)

  55. LadyVampire says:

    I think there are so many memorable moments in this series. When Ethan and Merit fight, when Ethan takes a stake for Merit, when Ethan and Merit are romantic together…. How can anyone pick just one moment as a favorite?

  56. Penny Pe says:

    I haven’t read the series yet, so I don’t have a favorite moment, but I’m hoping that will change soon!

  57. Zoe L. says:

    I don’t have a specific favorite!

    While I have plenty of moment that I LOVE…My favorite so far is when Ethan comes back in Drink Deep!! Thanks for the giveaway :D

  59. Eva says:

    ugh, so many — i really love all of merrit’s late night eating because it cracks me up! but the best moment was when she discovered that ethan was still alive (well, sort of) — so romantic!
