Giveaway: Blood Born by Linda Howard & Linda Jones

Blood Born is the first book in a new vampire series by Linda Howard and Linda Jones.  The second book in the series is Warrior Rising and is scheduled to hit shelves in the Spring of 2011.  One lucky commenter has a chance to win a copy of Blood Born.  As always, details are at the end of the post.

Synopsis (Product Description):

Luca Ambrus is a rare breed: He is a vampire from birth, begotten by vampire parents: blood born. He is also an agent of the Council—the centuries-old cabal that governs vampirekind, preserving their secrecy and destroying those who betray them.

When a cryptic summons leads him to the scene of the brutal killing of a powerful Council member, Luca begins the hunt for an assassin among his own people. But instead of a lone killer he discovers a sinister conspiracy of rogue vampires bent on subjugating the mortal world.

All that stands in their way are the conduits, humans able to channel spirit warriors into the physical world to protect mankind. Chloe Fallon is a conduit—and a target of the vampire assassin who’s killing them. When Luca saves her life, an irresistible bond of trust—along with more passionate feelings—is forged between them. As more victims fall, Chloe and Luca have only each other to depend on to save the world from the reign of monsters—and salvage their own future together.

    Well, I’d like to be able to read minds, and my connection to the Blood Born would be one of peace because I certainly wouldn’t want to be dinner.

    This sounds really good. I’m reading the Breed series right now by Lara Adrian and this will definitely be next. As for the question. The connection I’d like to share w/the Blood born would be telepathy. I would love to communicate intimately like that. For a power I guess I’d like to teleport like vamps do =)

    +1 Answering the Question:
    Well I don’t know much about the connection between them, but an irrestible bond sounds pretty amazing to me. And the passion sounds great too. I think I’d like that the best, it sounds like an irrestible draw to one another, like a magical love kinda thing. :)

    By the way, that description really liked me. I need a ration of vampires, who have not read anything lately about them.

    I think a connection where you can feel their feelings and thoughts is really neat.
