The Magnificent Eight Blog Tour!

Eight authors have gotten together to form the Magnificent Eight Blog Tour and it starts TODAY.

We each posed a question to the group of author participants and have posted their answers on our blogs today. To win a shot at each of the prizes we’re offering, visit every author’s blog, read the Q/As and enter to win! You have until Friday November 7th to make the rounds.

I’m offering an autographed prize pack of The Chosen Sin and What Happens in Vegas… along with some assorted goodies (chocolate, a book light, ect…).

My question was:
You have two weeks and unlimited funds. What fictional character you have written would you take on vacation, where, and why?

Anya Bast – I would take Alejandro Martinez from The Chosen Sin to the Riviera Maya in Mexico because he would be lots of fun to spend a couple weeks with. I’d want to see all the women drool over him. We’d lie on the beach, drink margaritas and let the world fall away. Of course, since he’s a vampire, he’d have to have temporary reprieve from his sensitivity to the sun.

Jaci Burton — I’d take Diaz from Riding Temptation on a Harley trip cross country. The dude has mad bike skills and he’s also good with a gun, plus he’s just damn smokin hot sexy. Sitting on the back of his bike, my body pressed to his, on
a trip around the country? Oh yeah.

Mandy Roth — I would take Giovanni from the Daughter of Darkness series. I can’t think of anything better than spending two weeks in a Tuscan villa, sipping wine and rolling between the sheets with a five hundred year old master vampire.

Shiloh Walker — Ireland…and who? Hmm. Man, I have to take one of my characters? But once I’m done with them, I’m so tired of hearing their voices….I guess I’d take Cullen from THE MISSING. But I’d also take his lady, Taige, and those two could stay occupied at the hotel while I’m out seeing the sights.

Megan Hart — I’d take Alex Kennedy from Tempted because he’d definitely know how to have a good time. All the women would be into him, and so would all the men. It would be one big party!

Joey Hill — Anna, from A Mermaid’s Kiss. I’d let her choose whatever remote warm-water ocean locations she’d like to show me. I’d love to explore the tropics with a mermaid who could take me to all the places that humans don’t normally get to see. Of course, I’d be able to be underwater as long as she was holding my hand. When we tired, she’d find us secluded white sandy beaches for sleeping or sunning. Jonah would come — bringing some of the other delectable angels from the Dark Legion of course — to spend time with us and make sure we had whatever foods and comforts we needed.

Lauren Dane — I’d grab Dix from Taking Care of Business and I’d head off to someplace warm on a beach in a luxury villa. I’d choose Dix because he’s sexy and saucy, a contemporary man with a very good imagination and he knows how to please a woman and how to have a great time.

Patrice Michelle — I’d want to take Caine Grennard on vacation in the Shawangunk mountains because he knows the mountains like the back of his hand and he could show me all the beauty the Gunks offer. Not to mention, I’d get to spend TWO weeks alone with the sexy werewolf!

Okay, so now I’m turning the question to you: What fictional character would you like to take on vacation and where? One poster will win an autographed prize pack of The Chosen Sin and What Happens in Vegas, along with some surprise assorted goodies.

Don’t forget to do a little “trick-or-treating” and visiting the rest of the blog in the tour in order to read the other questions and answers and pick up some more chances to win prizes!

Good luck!

Back up for comments now. My blog inexplicably decided to be closed to them for a period of time this morning.

75 comments to “The Magnificent Eight Blog Tour!”

  1. I would take Christine Feehan’s Carpathian Males (my mate) with me to an exotic island somewhere. I’m sure we could find a nice cave to stay in for a day or two…or five. lol

  2. I’d pick Roarke and a trip off planet to the Olympus Resort.

  3. Boone Dalton, my hero in TO SCHOOL A COWBOY. I think we’d have to go on a long lazy cattle drive.

  4. Too much of having my cake and eating it too leads me to a three-way tie between the men of Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark-Hunter universe: Urian (Spathi daimon), Savatar (a god among gods), and Nick (current rogue DH). Where would we go? Better question would be where wouldn’t we go… 😀

  5. I’d love to have Bram from Tempt Me with Darkness by Shayla Black or any of the other guys. They’re magical and sexy. Both pretty handy if I do say so myself. I’d want to go to Australia. I really want to go there.

  6. I would love to explore Egypt with both Zarek from Kenyon’s Darkhunter series and Zsadist from Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

  7. I’d want to take Lucas from Nalini Singh’s Psy Changling books – love him! Oh, and we’d go just about anywhere he wanted to! If nothing else, a secluded beach in the Caribbean would do nicely!

  8. I’ll take an order of Jeaniene Frost’s Bones (Crispin) ….especially two weeks of Chapter 32 in One Foot in the Grave. :mrgreen:

  9. I forgot to mention the travel destination, but I think we could totally do a world tour even in two weeks thanks to those teleportation skills that my were-hunter travel companion has: checking out Australia’s beaches, stopping at Taj Mahal in India, a lazy weekend in the Greek Islands, and lunching in New Orleans.

  10. I would love to see Australia’s out back. But, I think that would require an Aussie guide, so I would want Cohen Thorn from Boomerang Love by Melissa Lopez. But since he’s taken, maybe big brother Miller could substitute for him.


  11. I want to see the real Australia so I’d need to take someone who could handle the unexpected. Jake Tierny from Deidre Knight’s Midnight Warriors series would be just that man.

  12. Good morning Anya,

    I would take Mark Wahlberg’s character in the movie ‘Big Hit’ or ‘Sniper’. Oh let’s be honest I’d take any of Mark Wahlberg’s characters except the one in ‘Fear’.

    Have a great weekend,

  13. I would love to take Judd from Nalini singh’s novel “Caressed by Ice” and explore the scottish highlands with him. I just read that book and he is so alpha!

  14. EMT Rafe Moore from Samantha Hunter’s Talking In Your Sleep. I’d love for him and me to go to a log cabin in the woods at Christmas time.

  15. I would have to choose someone who has the darkness of hundreds of years of torment in him. Someone who believes himself unworthy of redemption and i can show just how worthy he is. And also someone who carries the passion of 1000 men. Also him being hot would be helpful. My choice would have to be Zsadist from JR Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood. Something about him just sends a chill throughout my body. I think i’d probably take him to an abandoned castle somewhere like Ireland. Equipped with a torture chamber so I can show him just how good torture can be.

  16. I would say Jaden from Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunter series. He could take me anywhere he wanted. I would be submissive to his dominate personality.

  17. I would definitely love to go somewhere with Simi from SK’s Dark Hunter universe. We could literally go anywhere: Vegas, NoLa, Katoteros, Kalosis, etc. And since she’s pretty popular at Santuary, we could hang out there with all the weres, DHs and whatever yumminess came through the doors 😀

  18. This was hard picking just one, LOL. I’d so love to take each of the hero’s I read, LOL.

    I’m in the mood for a Dale from HER BEST FRIEND’S LOVER by Shiloh Walker and we’d go to Scotland and get to visit the old castles there and other yummy things!

  19. I would like to go on vacation with Hermione from Harry Potter since she can perform magic and likes learning and history. I would spend time in Europe looking for dragons and staying in castles and magic hostels.

  20. This is going to be a hard one to answer but I would pick Nicholas Stafford from Jude Deveraux and tour all of the bed and breakfast’s in England.
    A Knight in Shining Armor is my all time favorite book.

  21. I’d love to take Richelle Mead’s Georgina. Just because she’d be fun to talk to and go guy scoping with.

  22. I would love to take Griff from Beverly Barton’s ‘The Murder Game’. I am sure he could show me a good time and would know how to treat a woman right.

  23. Acheron and Rhage on an island for a weekend is all I need.

  24. I would take Sookie Stackhouse from Charlaine Harris’s books. She could read everybody’s mind and tell me when they think I look fat. LOL

  25. I would take Dageus from Karen Marie Moning’s book The Dark Highlander.
    First of all, he radiates sexiness.
    He will always be there to protect me and give me a good time.
    Beside that, he can make you smile and laugh at his jokes and stories.
