Hard Bitten Blog Tour: Welcome Ethan & CLV Giveaways!

Welcome to today's Hard bitten Blog Tour stop.
I am honored to welcome the one and only Master Vampire of Cadogan House:

Hi, Ethan. Thank you so much for meeting with me today.
Ethan: You're very welcome.

I think this is something we all want to know. What do you think of Merit? When you look into her eyes what do you see?
Ethan: My future, I hope. But that decision, such as it is, is up to her. I can only hope that she makes the right one.

What is it like being the master vampire of Cadogan?
Ethan: *Frowning* Difficult at times. Challenging at times. Miraculous at times. There are instances when I want to shake my vampires by the shoulders. There are moments when I want to praise them incessantly. It is both a boon and a burden to have the lives of so many in hand. I can only hope I shoulder that burden gracefully.

You have shown quite an interest in Merit, why should she choose you?
Ethan: *Arching eyebrow* I'm not entirely sure how to answer that. I suppose if she has to debate it, she probably
shouldn't. And, to be honest, there are times when I've certainly given her second thoughts. I must hope she has hope for the two of us.

What's something that Merit would be surprised to learn about you? Any dirty secrets...hmmmm...
Ethan: Hmm. Well, I haven't been to an American movie theater since 1973. And my favorite cologne is Farenheit.

How are you a different master than Scott Grey and Morgan Greer?
Ethan: I'm not sure I am in kind, only by degrees, perhaps. Scott runs his House different, and has a different relationship with his vampires. A more military sensibility in my opinion. Morgan . . . Well. I'm not entirely sure he runs his House at all. The manner of his Mastery is yet to be seen, I think.

You have once talked about Merit's humanity...Is humanity a weakness or a strength for you?
Ethan: A year ago, I would have answered "weakness" without a second thought. But now. . .perhaps it can be both, depending upon how it is applied.

Since Merit has been your Chicago eats connoisseur, what has been you favorite thing to eat so far?
Ethan: The hot dog was quite good, actually.

What is your idea of wooing Merit?
Ethan: By showing confidence in her abilities and accepting her weaknesses.

Thank you so much again, Ethan for taking time out of your busy schedule to come and chat with me.
Ethan: You're very welcome

Need to know how good Hard Bitten will be Check out my review


  1. Awesome interview Mariya! I love Ethan. Can't wait for Drink Deep!!!!!

  2. Great interview, I still cant wait to get my hands on hard bitten!

  3. Aww great interview!! I heart ethan! Cant wait to read this book!

  4. Awesome interview! If I could ask Ethan anything it would be: What is your biggest regret or something you would most like to change?


  5. Great interview! I'm not sure what I would ask Ethan. I'm not really familiar with these books.

  6. I would ask him how he really feels about Merit? Is he really sure that he loves Merit and wants to be with her?


  7. Great interview! I so can't wait to read this one. I've preordered my copy but that just means I have to wait longer for it to come in the mail! :(


  8. I think I'd ask Ethan what he envisions when he thinks about having a relationship. He and Merit are form different generations and it's easy to imagine what Merit's expectations might be, but Ethan has to find a balance as head of his house as well as overcome his 300+ years of preconceived dating notions and Merit probably won't be cutting him any slack in the process. It would be interesting to get his perspective.


  9. I would ask him your master and merit is your vampire is it hard to keep your feeling aside when you have to be the Master vampire and give an order! I can't wait to read this book Thanks so much for the great Interview!

  10. i would ask him about that night he made merit into a vampire, and his motivations - there's got to be more to him just being there at the right place, right time.

    thanks for the interview and contest!


  11. If I could, I would ask Ethan "Since Merit joined Cadogan House, what are some things that have changed or improved for the better?"
