Fledgling vampire Jonathan Kerr has just met his match.

Not even his past life as a former marine and FBI agent could prepare him for the battle against the monster inside him, struggling to take hold. After an old nemesis of the Senary surfaces in Brooklyn, unleashing chaos and terror in the battered borough, Jon sets out to take him down. Instead, he ends up with far more than he bargained for when he clashes with the beautiful half-vampire hybrid, Lawan Knight.

After escaping near death and suffering unspeakable horror at the hands of vampires, Lawan trusts no one, regardless of species. In between bouts of drunken stupor, her only goal is to exterminate all those who've wronged her, including every member of Jon's vampire bloodline. But Jon’s soulful eyes and quick smile crawls under her skin, transforming her black and white world into a hazy shade of gray.

As the days rapidly grow darker, Jon and Lawan turn to one another, but their inner demons threaten to tear them apart. The only way either of them will survive is if they overcome their greatest fear—love.

10 Reasons Why I Love The Paranormal by L.D. Rose (Part 2 of 2)

Thank you so much, Becka, for featuring me on your blog! (You are quite welcome) 
<3 My name is Linda (writing as L.D. Rose) and I’m a doctor by day and author of dark PNR/UF by night. 

Since I’m a big fan of everything dark, sexy, and creepy, I figured I’d share my top 10 reasons why I love the paranormal. ;) 

On this here blog will be part two of this series. 

Part one was published earlier in the tour on Nov. 28th, so check out the main tour site for details! 

6. I wanted to be a paranormal investigator. 
As a teenager, I used to raid abandoned houses (particularly those rumored to be haunted), trek into the woods after dark in hopes of running into a cult (or at least see a hanging body), and I played Ouija WAY too much (I’ve had some interesting experiences with that demonic game, let me tell you!). I know it sounds crazy but I loved to be scared; it was a rush, an addiction even, and my morbid curiosity never ceased to be satisfied. I never got into the real complex “ghost hunting” with detectors and such, but I still visit the occasional haunted spot (although my sixth sense has petered out, unfortunately). My hubby is quite averse to the supernatural world, so now I tend to explore it through writing and art. That and an occasional episode of Ghost Hunters. ;) 
Have you ever had any scary adventures? I’d love to hear them! 

7. The type of music that draws me in most is rock, metal, and rap of a darker flavor. 
The darker the lyrics, the better. I’m madly in love with Trent Reznor (he’s my musical god) and some of my favorites are Marilyn Manson, Deftones, Godsmack, In This Moment, Disturbed, Staind and Stonesour. DMX is my favorite rapper of all time because he’s brutal and doesn’t hold anything back in his music. There’s something exhilarating about expressing one’s fears and discussing subjects most people are uncomfortable with through music (or any art in general). I try to do the same with my work and give it the realism it deserves. 

8. Jogging in cemeteries gives me peace. 
So, do you think I’m a total weirdo yet? :P Although my running tends to be on the street and residential neighborhoods as of late, I used to run through cemeteries all the time in college. I loved the silence and isolation—no people, no cars, just me, the trees, and the graves. My favorite used to be Oak Grove Cemetery in Fall River, MA, where the infamous Lizzie Borden is buried. Many cemeteries are hilly too, which makes for a great workout. 

9. My acceptance of death and all things disturbing eased my transition into doctorhood. 
Amongst other things, of course, but having a thick skin and a gut of steel helps. Being a doctor is terrifying. You end up in situations so crazy you can’t even 
imagine and you must act quickly. There’s no staring or jaw dropping or sudden paralysis. A career that starts out by asking you to take apart a human body requires some serious nerve…and that’s only the beginning! Not to mention you need to soothe the fears of others and understand them. Needles, scalpels, blood, and gore is no biggie to me, but my hubby will drop like a bomb at the sight of his own blood or an uncapped syringe. Being able to resist passing out is a major plus. ;) 

10. My passion for the dark and sexy (like vampires!) led to the publication of my first full-length novel. 
Yes, I love writing horror, but I also love writing about love. The books I’m most invested in involve a romantic relationship with a ton of conflict (usually of the frightening variety) and after much chaos and destruction, the hero and heroine have their well-deserved HEA. Dark paranormal romance and urban fantasy became my favorite genres to read…and write! I strive to put my readers through the same rollercoaster of emotions the characters experience—terror, lust, anger, sadness, relief, and of course, happiness. I think both fear and love bring out the best and worst in us, and I try to depict those ups and downs in my work. Now that both of my novels are out in the world, I hope they’ll be something memorable, whether you love the paranormal, horror, or a romance that keeps you teetering on the edge of your seat. 

Thanks for sticking it out this far, dear reader. <3 Thanks for visiting and hope this was somewhat interesting and entertaining!
