Indie Authors Spotlight (6) + Giveaway

Indie Authors Spotlight is a weekly meme that will be held every SATURDAY. It is hosted by Beckie @ Bittersweet Enchantment & CYP @ A Bookalicious Story. The idea of this meme is to promote indie authors and to help them and their books get recognized. This will be a great way for book bloggers to take part in helping these authors be spotlighted for their hard work. Below you will find a list of rules to follow to be able to take part in this meme.

Since no new authors have signed up, I will be featuring the one author for this month's IAS:

Mimi Jean Pamfiloff!
About Mimi

Before taking up a permanent residence in the San Francisco Bay Area, Mimi spent time living near NYC (became a shopaholic), in Mexico City (developed a taste for very spicy food), and Arizona (now hates jumping chollas, but pines for sherbet sunsets). Her love of pre-Hispanic culture, big cities, and romance inspires her to write when she’s not busy with kids, work, and life…or getting sucked into a juicy novel.

She hopes that someday leather pants for men will make a big comeback and that her writing might make you laugh when you need it most.

And her novels...

Accidentally in Love with...A God?
The Blurb

Twenty-two-year-old Emma Keane has a secret friend. He’s powerful, mysterious, and devastatingly handsome. In her dreams, anyway.

In real life, he’s an enigma. Maybe just a teensie jealous. Definitely overbearing. He’s also a voice only she can hear.

So who or what is he? He won’t say. But if she wants to be free, to be normal, Emma will have to trek to the jungles once ruled by the Mayans and find the forgotten ruin holding the answers.

However, the ruthless deity she’s about to unknowingly unleash on the modern world, might not be so easily extracted from her life. Bottom line, he’s got enemies, and now, so does she.

I love, love, love Greek stuff with a vengeance, and damn, this book sounds so good!:D

Accidentally Married to...A Vampire?
The Blurb

“If you love her, set her free. If she comes back, she’s yours. If she doesn’t…Christ! Stubborn woman! Hunt her down, and bring her the hell back; she’s still yours according to vampire law.”
- Niccolo DiConti, General of the Vampire Queen’s Army

THE DETERMINED VAMPIRE: Niccolo DiConti has faithfully served as leader of Her Majesty’s army for over a millennium, but he’d rather sunbathe in the Sahara than spend another grueling day under his demented queen’s command. However, no one has ever left her side and lived to tell. So when a powerful goddess prophesies he will meet his salvation—a human woman he must turn into a vampire with her consent—he eagerly rises to the challenge. After all, how hard could it be to seduce a human female into taking the immortal plunge? Harder than he thinks. Because his mate won’t be born for another three centuries, and when he wakes up in the goddess’ tomb, not only is his life a mess, but his destined female isn’t about to settle for a coldhearted vampire. Can he win her over before it’s too late? Not if his enemies have anything to do with it.

AN UNWILLING BRIDE: On the night Helena Strauss meets the fierce, devastatingly handsome vampire who saves her life in the jungles of Mexico, she knows her world will be forever changed. Because an attraction this mind blowing only comes along once in a lifetime—or existence. And when he claims she is his one true mate, destined to be his for all eternity, it’s a fairytale come true. So what if her knight in shining armor is a vampire? Nobody’s perfect. But discovering the powerful, overbearing immortal doesn’t “do love”? Deal breaker. Helena will flee and set out to accomplish the impossible…sever the otherworldly bond between them. And it turns out, Helena is just the leverage Niccolo’s enemies need to break the mighty warrior and wipe out his people.

    1. *Gasp!* Getting tired of mythical gods?!?! Oh man, mine is the other way around! I'm getting tired of vampires, not the gods. Haha, but I wouldn't stop reading about them too.

  3. Defiantly go with the vampire. Sounds interesting and fun! They both sound good though.. Havent read many on the gods.

  4. Accidentally married to a vampire... Who wouldn't want a vampire? :)

  5. It's gonna to be the vampire one! The blurb's longer so I can get a better feel of the book! Really stupid reason, but yeah! :D

    1. Lol! You have the weirdest reasons, Vic... If you want a more detailed view on it, why don't you go Goodreads and read those other reviews?

  6. OMG, I have read both of these books and they were so fun to read. Accidentally in love...with a God was my favorite. I cant wait for more!

    1. Serious?? That's awesome!! It sounds SO interesting, and I think I'm going to try picking it up after my exams since everyone's talking about how good it is! Not sure if Mimi's planning any more after Vampire, but let's all cross our fingers! :)

  7. Accidentally in love with...A God because Emma sounds like a character I can place myself in. Both books sound fun and vampires are my favorite creatures.
