Guest Post: Dinner For Vampires by LIv Rancourt

As part of the 'A Vampire's Deadly Delight' book blog tour hosted by The Bookish Snob Promotions, I have the lovely Liv Rancourt over here visiting the blog for today.

Book Blurb

She’s a quiet, unassuming bookstore owner by day, but by night...

Kristen has a deadly secret—when she smells a vampire, she turns into Jai, a beauti-licious babe who makes vamps permanently dead. To a vamp, Jai is like ambrosia. They can’t resist her. She uses this attraction, plus her super strength and her trusty blade, Mr. Sticky, to end their undead lives. The thrill of wearing miniskirts without worrying about cellulite stifles any qualms Kristen might have about killing the undead. Being Jai is the most fun she has ever had—until they come up against the one vampire Jai can’t kill. If he and Jai have a history, as he claims, Jai can’t remember it...or him.

But when her work catches the attention of some old enemies—who won’t hesitate to destroy Kristen if it also means the end of Jai—this vampire may be their only hope. Can Kristen and Jai learn to tell the difference between good and evil in time to defeat Jai’s ancient nemesis? Or will being Jai’s hostess cost Kristen more than just a little sleep?

Dinner for Vampires

Seems like lately I keep tripping over blog posts by writers (myself included) who feel the need to justify the creation of yet another vampire character. You know what? I’m not going to apologize anymore. I write about vampires. Deal with it.


Instead, I’m going to write about what I’d serve a vampire if he was coming to dinner. Um, besides myself, of course.
I’d probably start with a glass of red wine…I like a pinot, or maybe a shiraz. Nothing with too much oak in it.

…and maybe serve some cheese with it, you know? Little bites of cheese, some that are hard and tangy, and some that are smooth and creamy and spreadable…

For the main course, I’d serve pasta with a rich meat sauce. I’d go light on the garlic, of course…

And I’d have a loaf of crusty bread with olive oil for dipping…and smearing…

And desert would, of course, somehow involve chocolate, thick and smooth and sweet….

You’re probably wondering whether my vampire dinner guest could actually eat what I’d serve him. Well, no, probably not, but I can, so the menu includes all my favorites. He’ll dine later…


Thank you for stopping by Liv..that dinner sounds absolutely lush and I would definitely be adding garlic to my meal, just in case your guests get a bit hungry :)
