Fifty Shades YA Boys: Blood Fever by Veronica Wolff

Fifty Shades of YA Boys continues today with one very *HOT* Scottish vampire. I think I might absolutely swoon if I met Carden McCloud. I’m a sucker for a Scottish accent. Carden is currently the leading bad boy of The Watchers series by Veronica Wolff. The third book in the series, Blood Fever, will be released on August 7th.

Thanks to Penguin, one lucky person will have a chance to win a copy of Blood Fever at the end of the post!

About Veronica:

Veronica Wolff is an award-winning, bestselling author with a soft spot for kilts, mountains, beaches, and vampires. Not necessarily at the same time. She lived everywhere from Texas, to Hawaii, to India, before finally settling in Northern California, where she lives with her husband, two kids, one insane rescue dog, one angelic rescue dog, the gentlest cat ever, and a snake whose days are numbered.

You can visit Veronica around the web here: Website | Twitter | Facebook

My name’s Carden McCloud. These women would have me write about my complex nature, but to my mind, I’m not so very complicated, aye?

Granted, I hit a bit of a snag when I turned nineteen and was made Vampire, but once I learned to manage the blood lust, my needs became simple:

1. I must feed my various hungers, though my wee Annelise helps with that, and it’s not your business anyhow.
2. To live nobly. Vampire I might be, but I’m no beast. I yet bear the heart of a man in my chest.
3. To guard my freedom. I mock rules and those who’d try to control me.
4. To destroy those who’d use my unique talents for ill. Annelise doesn’t know it yet, but I’ve plans to beat these ancients at their own game.

As I said, uncomplicated, right?

Just remember, don’t be fooled by my devil-may-care smile. I’m more than just a mass of brawny, Scottish good looks. I may seem irreverent—indeed, I laugh in the face of danger—but my easy humor hides a deep sadness I reveal to no one.

But I’ve said too much. And there are many secrets yet to tell…

Fill in the Blank:

NOBODY KNOWS I AM: Serious. Don’t be fooled by my easy smile. Cross me or mine, and I’ll kill you in a heartbeat.

I WISH I COULD STOP: Thinking about my woman, but a blood bond tends to preoccupy a man.

I’M A SUCKER FOR: A good fight. Men don’t fight like they used to. These days, too many hide behind words or lackeys. There was a day when a man stood up for his own self. Protected his own honor. And besides, blades and fists are so much more satisfying.

A GOOD TIME FOR ME IS: A good fight. Were you not listening? See above.

NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE ME IF THEY SAW ME: With my woman. I’m gentle and kind. And I can cook, too.

I’D REALLY RATHER: Be back home again, truly home, among the land and people lost to me.

THE FIRST THING I DO IN THE MORNING IS: Does it matter? I don’t sleep anyway. But if you truly need an answer, the first thing I do as the sun rises is mourn the darkness. And then I think of my woman.

KILL / FRAK / MARRY:

1. Katy Perry – Marry. She’s strong and independent, and with the proper training, might even be able to kick ass as brilliantly as my own Annelise.

2. Sarah Michelle Geller – Are you daft? Kill. The woman played a vampire hunter on the telly.

3. Maggie Grace – Frak. Those who know me have probably guessed by now, I’ve a soft spot for a woman with hair the color of sunlight.

About this Book:

THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE HOME—EVEN IF HOME IS WHERE THE DEAD LIVE…

It’s the start of the fall semester, and a new crop of Acari and Trainees have descended on the Isle of Night. Watcher training has intensified, and Drew has a new roommate named Mei-Ling. But Mei-Ling harbors a dangerous secret that drove the vampires to abduct her against her will. Drew knows she shouldn’t get involved, but she can’t seem to leave her roommate to fend for herself.

Luckily, Drew has other things on her mind—like vampire Carden. A blood bond to a brawny, eighteenth-century Scottish bad boy tends to preoccupy a girl. And though she’s still figuring out what this bond means, one thing has become clear: She craves him in a major way.

But then bodies start turning up on the island. All the evidence points to the existence of a rogue vampire, and the sinister vampire Alcántara is gunning for Carden, even though Drew has proof that Carden had nothing to do with the murders. Now she has to find the true killer—without endangering Carden, Mei-Ling, or herself…

    He sounds like a cool character, but I’m pretty disappointed that he would choose to kill Sarah Michelle Geller than marry her.
