Biting Bad by Chloe Neill: Giveaway and Blog Tour!

Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she’s already seen a lifetime’s worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back. Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water. Merit and her allies rush to figure out who’s behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether there’s any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.

Welcome to my stop on the BITING BAD blog tour! I read BITING BAD a few weeks ago, and I LOVED IT! It is definitely the best book in the series, and I can’t wait for everyone to read this fantastic addition to Meritland. Chloe is visiting several great blogs to let Merit chat about all of the swoony men in the Chicagoland Vampire series. Let’s see what Chloe and Merit have in store for us today!

Hi, everyone, and welcome to the BITING BAD Blog Tour! From July 29, 2013 to August 9, 2013 (click here for full schedule), I’m visiting blogs to give Merit an opportunity to rate the men of the Chicagoland Vampires series–are they “Book Boyfriend” material? Let’s see what she has to say.

Scott Grey, Master
Hair/eye color: Dark brown/dark brown
Species: Vampire
House affiliation: Grey
First appearance in book (book/page): SGB, pg. 302
Thoughts: Scott’s handsome in an athletic, frat boy way, if you prefer that type. He’s standoffish, but he’s becoming more comfortable sharing Cadogan’s fight for the heart and soul of Chicago. And he’s a Cubs fan.
Verdict: B+ / Book boyfriend material for those who love sports, athletes, and those with quiet power.


Chloe has generously provided a giveaway for readers! I will split up the prizes to give a few people a chance to win something. Bookmarks, a tote, a signed copy of Biting Cold, and pens could be yours if you enter the rafflecopter below! I am limiting some of the bigger prizes to US readers, but I will select a few international readers to receive bookmarks! Good luck! I really hope you win!
The fun doesn’t stop here!
