Holiday Foreplay with Caris Roane + Giveaways
Hi, everyone! I want to thank RABID READS for having me today as part of my WARM UP YOUR WINTER BLOG TOUR. I created the tour with the hope that you might get to know my work, specifically my Guardians of Ascension, who are my most beloved winged vampire warriors. I know the covers have wings on them, but the books aren’t about angels AT ALL… just vampires…with wings. I also have goodies for you to win, details to follow!
In keeping with Rabid Reads holiday theme, I’ll be sharing my favorite holiday memory.
I LOVE the holidays and the truth is I don’t have just one favorite memory. I have a bunch of them because my family established a tradition that we repeated every year, each time wonderful!
Here’s the tradition: On Christmas Day, I would prepare the same brunch: pumpkin bread, bacon (crisp), a yogurt fruit salad, and a casserole made from Tater Tots, frozen broccoli, small ham cubes, cream of chicken soup, and cheddar cheese. My family LOVED it! Then we’d exchange presents and after I had the joy of seeing my kids open all their goodies, we’d head off to the movies to see whatever fabulous blockbuster was out that year. AND if that wasn’t enough, when we got home I’d prepare a complete holiday dinner with roast chicken, dressing, mashed potatoes and homemade gravy, cranberry relish, green beans, usually a salad to start, then pecan pie a la mode to finish. My DH, bless him, did all the dishes while I cooked and cooked and cooked.
Holidays are the best because it’s the time of year when we lavish our love on the most important people in our lives! I hope this season brings you the best memories ever!
When you leave a comment below, I’d love to hear about your favorite holiday memories!

As a vampire and a warrior, Leto Distra is deadly. But after years of being forced to drink dying blood, he is now part beast—a wild savage thing lurking beneath the surface. With war on the horizon, Leto is determined to help the Guardians of Ascension destroy the enemy who turned him into a monster. And there’s only one woman who can help him.
Grace Albion is certain that she’s meant to be with Leto, but their future may be cut short by the impending battle. Now Grace must embrace her obsidian flame powers—and bind her powers with Leto’s—if they’re ever going to survive. With the fate of the world at stake, they must tap into powers they never knew they had…and unlock their deepest passions. Sexy and thrilling, Gates of Raptures is the breathtaking final book in Caris Roane’s Guardians of Ascension series.
