Book of the Day: The Chosen Sin



In this sensuous and lust-filled otherworld, the Chosen are vampires fighting for their very existence.

It is Daria’s destiny to become one of them…

Daria Morris is a special forces agent with one obsession: to wreak vengeance on the brutal vampire who nearly destroyed her. Now she’s finally about to get her chance, on one condition. She must become something she detests: a vampire.

Her fate rests upon one man’s lethal bite. His name is Alejandro Martinez, and he can help her infiltrate a highly guarded group of the Chosen. But Alejandro is also a distraction for Daria. Because thirteen years ago, they shared a scorching night of passion neither has forgotten.

Now, while Daria struggles against her newfound bloodlust, the two must slip into the shadows to bring a monster to justice—even as their desire threatens to consume them. But under the cover of night, they’ll discover that it’s the darkness within that may stand in the way of their hunger for retribution…

Okay, guys, this is my book, so no bio/interview today. Want a chance to win a copy of The Chosen Sin? Tell me about the most recent book you’ve purchased. What compelled you to buy it? This contest is open to non-US entrants.

Important contest flotsam and jetsam. Please read….

I’m taking off for a few days at Disney, then I’ll be at the Romantic Times Bookclub Convention. After today, the daily book contests go on hiatus because I’ll be at Disney. The contests will resume once I get to the Romantic Times (RT) Convention hotel, on April 22nd. If you’re not familiar with RT, it’s a huge romance reader/romance author convention that Romantic Times Bookclub magazine puts on every year and is my reason for going to Florida.

I have the daily book contests set to start posting automatically again on the 22nd, so go ahead and enter every day. If for some reason I have internet connectivity issues, (I don’t anticipate any), once I get to the RT Con hotel hang tight and be patient. I’ll post the winners just as soon as I can.

Have fun while I’m off communing with Mickey, you all!!

  1. The last book that I bought was SPEAK by Laurie Halse Anderson because I have heard good things about it.


  2. The latest purchase was MY SUNSHINE by Catherine Anderson. The reason I bought it (although my wallet is literarily empty and I had to postpone payment by using my overused American Exp. card) was that all her books made me think about the life in general or my life. Also they are fun and have believable conversations and twists.

  3. The last book I purchased was LOOK AGAIN by Lisa Scottoline becasue I am a fan.

  37. Ha! The most recent book(s) I purchased were Stray and Pride, books one and three from the Werecat series by Rachel Vincent. Why did I buy those two? Because I picked up Rogue, intent on starting the series and realized after a few pages that I had indeed picked up book 2 of the series. Psh!

  38. I can’t remember the name of the last book I bought, but I bought it because it was large print!Much easier for me to read.
    The Chosen Sin sounds great. I liked the trailer too.
    Enjoy Disney and the convention

  39. The last book I purchased was Red-Headed Stepchild by Jaye Wells. I had been seeing it a lot on amazon and other websites, and when I saw it at Barnes and Noble, I just picked it up on impulse. I haven’t read it yet though, because I’m in the middle of Magic to the Bone which is the last book I’ve checked out from the library.

  40. The last book that I bought was Blood Secrets by Vivi Anna. I bought it because it was a paranormal ebook from Harlequin. I love paranormal novels and the idea of a vampire city in our modern day world was an interesting concept.

  41. Stolen Fury by Elizabeth Naughton…….read about it here, and couldn’t believe that I’d missed it. It sounds so great.

  42. Taking Care of Business by Lauren Dane & Megan Hart . Why b/c I’m a huge fan and couldn’t wait for the book to come out.

  43. I just bought a book this morning. It is Amber Benson’s Death’s Daughter and I picked it up because (A) I’m a huge Buffy Fan and (B) I’ve been hearing great reviews about it. I can’t wait until I get to actually read it, but I’m definitely excited about it.

  44. The last book I bought was At Grave’s End by Jeaniene Frost. I loved the first two in the series, so I had to have the third as well!

  45. The last book I purchased was Maverick by Lora Leigh, I love her books and this Elite Ops series is great!

  46. I really want this book. Love your books.

    Sadly, my last book purchase has been a month or so ago when I bought Dream Warrior by Sherrilyn Kenyon. What compelled me to buy it? I’m a Minion and need my dark/were/dream hunter fix and she’s an automatic, must have buy.

  47. Oooh Disney, what fun! Enjoy!!
    The last book I purchased was BORN IN DEATH by JD Robb/ Nora Roberts… I am a little behind on her IN Death series, but who can pass up on visiting those wonderful characters time and time again! :grin:

  48. I bought 3 books yesterday: Acheron by Sherrilyn Kenyon in mass-market, Deadly Desire by Keri Arthur (despite being 3 books behind on the Riley Jenson series, but I love ‘em), and A Rush of Wings by Adrian Phoenix, whom I’ve never read. I chose the latter b/c quite a few people on my forum whose opinions I trust raved about this book.

    Now I hope I win The Chosen Sin, b/c I’ve been dying to read it, but my budget can’t always stretch to trade paperbacks!

    Have fun in Disneyworld and at RT! :grin:

  49. I love the book trailer!

    Just got back from Disney last week, Enjoy :wink:

  51. The most recent book I bought was Naughty Bits by Lacy Danes, Megan Hart, Delilah Devlin, Eden Bradley, Tracy Wolff and Susanna Carr to name a few of the fifteen authors. It fit into the limited time I had to read and was Hot! :smile:

  52. Last time I got The Secret Wedding by Jo Beverley (a fan, autobuy) and Would-Be Witch by Kimberly Frost (new author, sounds like a fun, light series).

  53. The last books I bought were from Total-e-bound. They were Bad Boys, Bad Boys by Mia Watts, The Gallery by Dakota Rebel and Collared Turquoise and Leather by Kim Dare.

    All great reads.

  54. Oh Anya,

    I am so jealous of you going to Disney and RT lol. I hope you have a wonderful time!! We usually go to Disney World this time of year, but won’t get this year unfortunately. The Flower Festival is so lovely!

    The last thing I purchased was an ebook on fictionwise.com, Dark Love by Stephanie Bedwell Grime. It is a paranormal novella with vamps… and basically that is why I purchased it lol. I love paranormal based romances and vamps are a big hit with me.

    This is why I hope to win The Chosen Sin :)!! It’s on my wishlist and I have been dying to read it!

  62. Hubby and I decided to do our part for the economy by giving our Indie bookstore a list of UF/PR books that we want and when they are coming out. The last book we bought, would be one that came out last week (since I still have to pick up this week’s) Jim Butcher’s Turn Coat. And what makes me follow that series is Thomas Raith.

  63. The most recent book I purchased was BLUE DIABLO by Ann Aguirre. I bought it because I love fantasy books, and I enjoyed Ann’s previous novels a lot.

  65. I love the book video!

  66. The most recent book I bought was… today actually! Spell of the Highlander by Karen Marie Moning. I’ve just heard such great things about this series. And who can resist a 50 cent like new hardback? :grin:

  70. OMG – I need this book! The last book I purchased was actually this afternoon! While looking for a lunch spot, my coworkers and I passed a used book store that was raising money for public schools! I bought a ton of books, but I’m most looking forward to Shadow of the Giant by Orson Scott Card. He was my introduction to non-pop fiction (as I call it), so I’ve had a soft spot for his books ever since.

  71. Deadly Desire by Keri Arthur. I have the rest of the books in the Riley Jensen and this cover just drew me to pick up the latest installment :)

  72. I preordered Silver Falls by Anne Stuart. I love her books and they’re all auto buys for me. And this one sounds really good!

  73. I bought Lora Leigh’s Only Pleasure along with two of her other books.

  76. The last book I bought was Riding on Instinct by Jaci Burton, because I love that series! Alpha men and kick ass women bringing down the bad guys and falling in love :grin:

    I love the trailer for The Chosen Sin!

    As for the last book I bought? I just bought it yesterday – it’s a hard bound edition of all … seven, I think of Jane Austen’s novels. (Can’t remember if Lady Susan is in it…). I got it for my sister, for her birthday :)
