Guest post by Lila Dubois + giveaway

 Today we have a guest post from Lila Dubois, author of CARNAL MAGIC from Samhain Publishing. It's the first book in the Wraith Accords, which has the look of a great new series. Lila's guest post today is about her own love story (with Ireland) and how this kickstarted her ideas for the Wraith Accords.

Welcome, Lila!


I was obsessed with Scotland, not Ireland. When I first started sneaking my mom's romances in high school I was all about the historicals in Scotland. In fact, Julie Garwood is my go to comfort read, and my paperbacks of her historicals are being held together with packing tape. I loved stories of the highlands and clans, and always promised myself that I'd go there some day. Fast forward a few years, and I've never been to Scotland, and instead I've fallen in love with Ireland.

In 2007 I met, through a mutual friend, a very cute Irishman who I subsequently married. My first trip to the emerald isle was when we were seriously dating, and knew I needed to meet his family before we went any further. Because of this I didn't get to experience Ireland as a tourist--I basically ignored everything except meeting these people I hoped would be my in-laws. Over the course of a few more visits I was very lucky to get to know Ireland, and soon my early love for Scotland was replaced by a deep love of first Irish people and secondly the country as a whole.

On a quick side note, all that lovely green foliage? It can cause your allergies to go insane if you're from a less verdant place. I spent a memorable week alternately with my face swollen and nose raw or doped up on antihistamines that made me drowsy.

Because we're rathery dorky, my now-husband and I love to give each other books, and not fun books, but reference books. I got him the complete box set history of the civil war and he got me a bunch of books on Irish mythology. Reading those first books of mythology sparked the idea for The Wraith Accords.

Here's the scoop on CARNAL MAGIC:

Carnal Magic by Lila DuboisTwo hundred years after the Tuatha de Danaan and Vampires formed a fragile alliance, the Wraith Accords are unraveling. Isabel Santiago is a leader in one of the most powerful of the vampire cabals, and she agrees to join the Fae court as a gesture of goodwill—and damage control.

While Aed mac Goll’s loyalty to Fae is absolute, he’s never supported the accords which gave the Vampires sanctuary and restored the Tuatha de’s link to humanity. The very idea he could desire an undead human is unthinkable, yet he’s drawn to Isabel’s dark beauty and fierce intelligence.
