Guest Post & Giveaway: "Take it Like a Vamp" by Candace Havens

I have Candace Havens on my blog today for a guest post and giveaway. Ava also reviewed "Take it Like a Vamp" you can find her review by scrolling down to the next post. So lets get started and give Candace a very warm welcome to the Romance Book Junkies.

Topic: Tell us the difference between having sex with a vamp opposed to a human.

So you meet a vampire at a bar. He’s sexy, hotter than hot and things are going well. But that moment arrives, and maybe you’re a little scared about what happens next. Is sex with a vampire different than human sex? And what if you’re human and he or she isn’t?

Casey, the heroine of Take It Like Vamp, is much more knowledgeable about these things than I could ever be, so I thought we’d chat with her.

1.      OK, let’s get the toughest question out first – does sex with a vampire hurt?
Casey: For a split second, and then it’s the most explosive sense of pleasure you’ve ever felt in your life. For Vamps, the bite is the ultimate part of sex and for the human involved, well, it’s absolutely unforgettable.

2.      Is there a way to prepare for a Vamp encounter?
Casey: I’m not a big fan of exercise, anyone who knows me will tell you that. But if you’re interested in sex with Vampires, well, it’s a necessity. You have to keep up your stamina. Eat a lot of beef and take vitamins. Vamps are very physical, so to keep up with them you have to able to take it.

3.      Do you ever worry about dying during sex?
Casey: Honestly, I’m usually so caught up in the moment I don’t think about it. We break a lot of furniture. I think I’m more afraid of crashing into glass or stepping on a nail. When we, um – Remember what I said about being physical? It’s best if you try to keep the damage around you to a minimum. I suggest sparse surroundings, rounded corners and super soft furniture.

4.      So what happens after the fact? Do Vampires cuddle?
Casey: Depends on the vamp. I’ll be honest, my guy, Nick, is definitely a cuddler. Do not tell him I said that. It will ruin his tough guy rep at the office. I don’t know about other vamps, because I’ve only slept with Nick.

5.      Do Vampires fall asleep, like many male humans do after the fact?
Casey: (She laughs.) Oh, friends. Vamps can go all night long, over and over again. It’s all that supernatural strength and stamina. (Fans herself.) If you don’t mind, all this talk makes me – um, I need to find Nick. Thanks for letting me hang out!

Take it Like a Vamp
by Candace Havens
Entangled Publishing - July 2012

Vampire Nick Christos might have been born in the Middle Ages, but those days seem tame compared to the last eight years spent ruling the Supernatural Council. The only respite in his long days of governing is with his sweet neighbor Casey Meyers. Sure, he’s forced to take a cold shower after every encounter, but no way will he risk anything more with a human. Not with his blood thirsty ex on the prowl and out to ruin Nick’s life.
But when said crazy ex shows up at the ball and flies her freak flag high, Nick has more to worry about than keeping his hands off his neighbor. He’ll have to stay closer than ever if he hopes to keep her alive, but will she want to leave him forever when she learns the truth?
