Cover Reveal and Giveaway: The Red Veil Series by Elizabeth Marx

More and more cover reveals!  Woo hoo!!!
This one is doubly sweet as there's two covers being revealed!!!
No, make that quadruply sweet ... there's a giveaway of BOTH books, too!
Freakin' awesome, huh?  I knew you'd be excited!!!

So, let's jump right in, shall we?  Here's the prequel:

Descent of Blood
The Red Veil Series, The Prequel 

When times are darkest, some vampires desire more than blood … 

England, 1465. Mortal men clash in the War of the Roses for the English crown, while vampire warriors’ move undetected among their ranks, savoring the flow of blood that battlefields provide.

Vampire prince, Severian Pearce, fears the revelation of the immortal clans to humankind should King Henry fall from power. While in pursuit of Henry’s enemies, Severian comes to the aid of Meridian Neville, a human woman he craves—and not for the scent of her blood … Meridian is torn between honoring her father’s dying wish and her unexplainable yearning for Lord Severian. But as Severian and Meridian work together to protect a relic hunted by mortals and immortals alike, the red veil descends over them. This all-consuming attraction can drive immortals to the brink of madness. Will the existence of this powerful bond between a human and a vampire be enough to unite the immortal clans or is the red veil a scourge set on destroying any chance they might have of happiness? 

When all hope is lost, one vampire will fight unto death for his forbidden love.

And then the main attraction...

Ascent of Blood
The Red Veil Series, Book One 

Sometimes, love is conceived in the mind of a man long before it is ever realized. 

1990, Cardiff, Wales. Vampire prince, Sebastian Pearce, has waited six-hundred years for the right human mate. His own beloved mother was a mortal capable of carrying immortal offspring. While vampires no longer require live donors for sustenance, Mother Nature has played a cruel trick on them … making breeders a rare commodity. As numbers in his Imperial House dwindle, Sebastian’s virgin bride eludes him, until he happens upon a young woman searching for information about a sacred vampire text, the Book of Descent. Sebastian’s desire for her is more potent than anything he’s felt for another woman, but Everleigh Marbut isn’t innocent. She’s an American with a mind of her own, and worst of all, she’s already carrying an immortal being. Sebastian and Everleigh are so intent on fighting their attraction to each other and the influence of the red veil that they don’t realize they’re being pulled into a battle pitting medieval myth against the power of modern science to recreate life.

Crazy awesome, right?!?!  Gorgeous covers, intriguing blurbs.  This is one PNR you don't want to miss!!!  Now there's not a definitive release date on these babies, so you'll want to become close buddies with the author so you'll know as soon as they are available, right?  Good thing you've got me.  What can I say?  I do prove to be useful on occasion ;)

Allow me to introduce this genius of a gal, Elizabeth Marx:

Windy City writer Elizabeth Marx brings cosmopolitan flair to her fiction, which is a blend of romance and fast-paced Chicago living with a sprinkle of magical realism. In her past incarnation she was an interior designer--not a decorator--which basically means she has a piece of paper to prove that she knows how to match and measure things and can miraculously make mundane pieces of furniture appear to be masterpieces. Elizabeth says being an interior designer is one part shrink, one part marriage counselor and one part artist, skills eerily similar to those employed in writing. 

Elizabeth grew up in Illinois and has also lived in Texas and Florida. If she’s not pounding her head against the wall trying to get the words just right, you can find her at a softball field out in the boonies or sitting in the bleachers by a basketball court. Elizabeth resides with her husband, girls, and two cats who’ve spelled everyone into believing they’re really dogs.

Elizabeth has traveled extensively, but still says there’s no town like Chi-Town.

Get to know Elizabeth better (just admit you wanna stalk her already ... tee hee hee) on her website, blog, Goodreads, Twitter and her Amazon author page.

And now that totally awesome giveaway that I may have mentioned.  One winner, two awesomesauce books (just remember these are NOT YA, but I can't attest to where on the heat scale these may fall).  Just fill out the Rafflecopter (I heart me Rafflecopter forms!!!) below:
