Blog Tour ~ Reborn
Author: Jane Ederlyn
Tour Dates: 27th-31st of March
Hosted by: Ultimate Fantasy Book Tours
Marie Josette d’Orgemont, cousin to Louis XVI, watched in horror as a rogue creature took her husband’s life before turning on her. A powerful vampire swept in and spared her life, but she never suspected surviving meant immortality or the price she’d have to pay to protect her surviving son.
Centuries later, in Miami, with her family on the verge of extinction, Marie is preoccupied with the continuation of her human bloodline. When she meets sexy and persistent Odin Ulfsson, his icy-blue gaze and burning touch are hard to resist. Will a forbidden romance with the Nordic werewolf be the key to her happiness, or will it set in motion a wrath that endangers not only her last human heir but her entire existence?
Jane Ederlyn is the alter ego of a writing duo from South Florida.
Jane, a registered nurse by day, by night lives to create havoc and conflict in their stories, relentlessly strategizing ways to kill off one more character.
Ederlyn, a cruise-line professional by day, by night loves to plot meticulous happily-ever-afters for the hero and heroine, often battling Jane to save her favorites.
They can usually be found at their favorite Barnes & Noble sipping lattes and pondering “what ifs?” or at the mall shoe shopping.

Excerpt taken from Reborn:
“You make me come all the way out here to announce you’re in heat? And that is supposed to be acceptable because of your free pass.”
“Don’t get your panties in a wad. I thought this went both ways.” He pointed back and forth, between them.
Her temper surged because he was right. She did want him. Wanted him so much she was standing on a beach with him despite her better judgment. She could have waited for Etienne’s return. But she couldn’t admit that to him. She barely admitted it to herself. “I think you lack manners.”
“Okay. Look, this is all coming out wrong. I just want to get to know you.”
“You do not know me.”
“Exactly. Forget about how we met and pretend we met at a bar. You know. Boy meets girl. Boy likes girl. Boy buys girl a drink.”
“I do not drink alcohol.”
“What do you drink? Never mind. That was stupid. I know what you drink. I’m nervous. I’ve never met a female vampire before. There can’t be that many of you.”
She cocked her head.
“When you stare, it’s so intense it’s like you can see every breath I’ve ever taken.”
There was a catch in his voice that surprised her. She inhaled and exhaled, smelling the truth in him and the same earthiness of his skin mixed with beach scents, salt, sand, and ocean. “Am I to allow you intimacy just to fulfill your curiosity?”
He chuckled and she found that she liked the deep huskiness of his laugh.
“I promise not to turn unless you want me to,” he said.
“Have you ever been with a vampire?” she asked, trying to sound unconcerned.
“Your smell is driving me crazy and I know you’ll taste as good as you smell.”
A small gasp escaped her lips at the hunger in his voice. “You want to lick my face?” Somehow she managed to keep her voice casual. Could he smell her desire, the way she could smell his?
“I’m not a dog, woman.”
Her hand itched to touch him again, and she reached out, splaying her palm on his chest. Heat burned through the cotton of his shirt.
“No, you are not a dog.”
He dipped his face until he was at eye level with her. Then he growled. The rumble was low and sedate, rolling through his body, as if propelled by a current, and tumbling out on his warm breath.
Marie closed her eyes, losing herself in the heat and the drumming of his heartbeat. He was supernatural but alive. When she opened her eyes, he was staring at her.
She was surprised to see more flecks of gold in his irises. The shimmering color blazed when a beam of moonlight touched his face.
He lowered his face to her neck and inhaled. “You’re so…cool,” he said in awe.
She was instantly reminded of her reality, of her body temperature, and the absence of her heartbeat. Self-conscious, she began to withdraw from him.
“No. No. I like it.”
He sniffed again, his body curling above her and his face a breath away from her neck. He didn’t touch her, but the stubble of his chin and cheek grazed the ghost of her skin, and shivers of excitement rushed down her back.
