Blog Tour: Welcome to Adelheid #Paranormal #Giveaway


Welcome to the Blog Tour for Mia Darien's  paranormal series - Adelheid. Enjoy! And don't forget to enter her giveaway at the conclusion of the post.
Cameron's Law
Vampires are people, too.
Cameron's Law has made all supernatural creatures legal citizens, and the boy next door has suddenly become the werewolf next door. With Sadie Stanton, vampire and one of the public faces of the legislation, calling the little town of Adelheid, Connecticut home, it can't help but be a focal point for these once mythical beings.
But when vampires start attacking werewolves without provocation, Adelheid draws the attention of those that would seek to have Cameron's Law repealed and would send the preternaturals back into the shadows they used to hide in, but without the safety of their anonymity and their law.
Can Sadie keep the city's two biggest species from descending into chaos and war before it brings all of them to harm? And can she do it when she herself gets thrust into the spotlight?

Quotes (From Amazon or Barnes & Noble Reviews)
“…Sadie Stanton is the MOST likable and, believe it or not, the most relatable female vampire that I’ve had the pleasure to “meet.”…”
“…while reading this book I thought how nice True Blood could have been. Now don’t get me wrong Sookie Stackhouse is an enjoyable read but this book made me think True Blood with sense…”

When Forever Died

Forever is a long time.
The life of a hunter is a lonely one. Perhaps more for Dakota than others in her line of work. Not only is she better than anyone else at chasing down the things that go bump in the night, but her past chases her with the same tenacity.
She's built walls around her solitary existence and that's the way she likes it, but the past never sleeps. When she's hired to hunt an ex-lover for murder, it's just the first in a string of memories that will bring Dakota's past, present and future into a collision course.
And when she agrees to take on a second case and hunt down an Ancient, a vampire over one thousand years old, it unleashes circumstances onto that collision that will shake the foundation of everything she's built and force her, for the first time in a long while, to look to others.
Can she survive it, like she's survived these past four centuries? Or will the weight of it all finally crush her?

Quotes (From Amazon or Barnes & Noble Reviews)
“…I defy anyone to read When Forever Died and NOT like it…”
“…This is one of the best paranormal series I have found this year…”


Sometimes, life doesn’t begin until after you’re dead.
Days stretch out in a series of predictable steps. A to B to C to A. Work. Friends. Life. But for some people, it’s not enough. It’s not enough for D. Possessed of a ravenous hunger for more, he’s at a loss for how to find it.
Until he meets Cielle. She’s everything he’s looking for: new and exciting.
And a vampire, which he’s less crazy about.
But when “new and exciting” Turns him, D is forced into an undead life he never anticipated. Trying to adjust to this new existence is hard enough, but he’s about to get more than he ever bargained for.
Will it be enough to sate his hunger?

Written All Over Her
One word can change the story of your life forever.
Abduction. Torture. Surrender.
Eleven months from her adolescence have framed thirty-one years of Detective Nykk Marlowe’s life. Despite the trauma of her past, and the unique physical scars it left her with, she’s built a career as a detective for the Adelheid Police Department.
Her personal life might only consist of caring for her sister and a pet rabbit, but she accepts that.
She accepts that she’ll never be able to be like “normal” people, even the supernatural ones. As long as she can keep the past where it belongs, she’s okay.
But when the body of a teenage girl shows up with the same scars that Nykk sees in the mirror every day, her “okay” life gets turned upside down and she’s forced to confront the past she’s been looking away from for sixteen years.
And when it turns out there’s already more than one victim, the pressure’s on to stop the killer before any more girls are tortured, mutilated, and murdered.

Getting caught at the Coven House during a blackout wasn't my idea of a good time.

I'd been there on business, but was getting ready to leave when the lights went out. I knew that none of the vampires would actually attack me--they could do that just as well in light as well as dark, after all, as I was only human--but there is still that human primordial fear of the dark and the things that go bump in it.

I was suddenly in a house full of bumping things that could see far, far better than I could.

"Well, this was unexpected," Jade said.

The leader of the Coven House had been standing with me in the back, politely escorting me out. She was beautiful, like a perfectly sculpted porcelain doll, and made me feel very insecure in my own physical presence, plain and scarred as I was. But hey, can't change the past, a lesson I've learned better than most.
A moment later, we heard D roaring about Abby and then Abby giggling, but then we heard the door, the window, the shriek, and the running.

I didn't know for sure, but I got the feeling that Jade frowned.

"I'd like to help here, but..." I began.

"Indeed," was all Jade said, in her usual understated way.

There was a clanking sound in the basement, followed by the lead coven warden (Shayna) cursing, then the whirring sound and the lights came back on. Jade was already walking away, leading upstairs to find out what was going on up there--as there had been another round of door opening/shutting and footsteps--when I saw a mini-cyclone bowling down the stairs.

Instinctively, from years of training, I just held out my arm as it brushed past Jade and came right for me. Something solid connected with my arm and knocked both I and the thing on our collective asses, but D came thundering down a minute later and jumped on it. Faint buzzes of electricity sparked against his skin, but he held firm.

"Any time now, Donovan," he gritted through his teeth.

"This is a demon?" I asked, horrified now and on a very personal level.

Donovan smiled apologetically at me, since he understood my specific terror, as he began drawing on the expensive wood floor with some chalky white paint-something. Sadie was right behind him.

"How did you do that?" she asked. "It was a freakin' demon and you clothes-lined it."

"Sometimes power comes when you don't know what you're dealing with," I said with a weak smile.

Sadie's smile was a little more genuine. Maybe even a little...evil. "Man, Dakota is gonna be pissed."


"Cause she missed all the fun," Sadie said with a smirk that seemed not at all sorry, "and she's still stuck in jail."
