THIS TIME NEXT YEAR - Guest Post & #giveaway by Cate Peace

Tandy's defense of setting up Moira with 1Night Stand; or, What are Best Friends For (if not for going behind your back and setting you up with a date)?

Best friends have to wear a lot of hats—the party hat for those awesome times, the commiseration hat when things don’t go as planned (it looks like one of those birdcage veil things), the spiked helmet (that matches the armor) for when people mess with our loved ones. Sometimes, though, we have to put on the devil horns.

That happens to be my favorite hat.

I may have been employing some devil horns when I signed my best friend Moira up with 1Night Stand. I’d heard about it from a mutual friend, who’d used the service and found the perfect person for her. Did I think Madame Eve would set Moira up with the person she belonged with? Yes. Did I think that person would be a vampire? Never crossed my mind.
However, I did my research before I filled in any blank fields. I asked Alene a hundred questions. I read testimonials from the site. I did everything I could think of because that’s what best friends do. Besides, with as much as she’s been through, Moira deserved something sure. I got tired of watching her fade into the background and being the only one who knew how fantastic she is. Even though I had to go behind her back to do it, it needed to be done.
I knew she’d forgive me eventually. I mean, Kiernan’s pretty hot. For a vampire.
Besides, happy endings are hard to come by in this world. And who deserves one more than your best friend?

Thanks, Cate and Tandy! And isn't that a gorgeous cover?


Vampire Kiernan Shaw has never forgotten the night twenty years ago when he’d been forced to stand by while another vampire killed a six-year-old girl’s parents in front of her. He’s spent the better part of the last two decades watching over her, protecting her and hoping for an opportunity to make amends one day.

Ever since surviving the vampire attack that killed her parents, Moira Curran has dealt with the resulting nightmares and abandonment issues the only way she could—by throwing herself into her biochemistry career, preferring a life of a hermit in her lab to facing the reality of her lonely life.

Madame Eve brings them back together for one fateful night. An immediate bond of sizzling chemistry and respect forms, but can it heal her fears and his guilt?
