Guest promo: Lorelei Bell

I'm so excited to be here at VampChix, you guys do a great job presenting wonderful books to your audience, I'm just happy to be one among them. Thank you!
Sabrina is becoming a magical creature—not just a clairvoyant with ring that thwarts a vampire's thrall.  In this exciting third installment, Sabrina learns how to travel the ley lines, and travels to another world called Beyond the Black Veil ~ a world where vampires out number humans ten to one, and humans are merely blood donors and objects of their sexual desires.

The Dagger of Delphi becomes her weapon of choice. And what becomes of Dante Badheart, whose spirit essences is contained in the stone he gave her when last he spoke to her from the dead, is another mystery that intrigues her.

Sabrina Strong's cousin, Lindee, has disappeared, and when she goes to the last place Lindee was seen, she finds herself transported to another world and century, where vampires rule. While trying to solve the mystery of where Lindee could be in this world, Sabrina encounters Drakulya—the real-life Dracula—a.k.a. The Impaler—who has somehow managed to become a vampire living in this strange world, and rules as King. He is mystified by Sabrina's various abilities (like being able to disappear at will from her imprisonment), and he's decided she's to become his blood dame. Meanwhile his son, Jett, simply wants her, despite the fact he is to marry a vassal's daughter, Penelope.

After discovering that some unusual creatures, called Dreadfuls, who spread sickness and death through the village, she realizes she is the only one who has the power to stop them. Drakulya's own wife, who is near death, has been infected by these Dreadfuls. When it is discovered she can “kill” them, Drakulya gives her high status in his house (yep, no longer a mere blood donor). Now Sabrina's services have become high in demand, and she has to figure out who is the creator of these creatures before it's too late. She needs to solve this mystery before she can find Lindee, and must go up against a blood broker who may be behind the murder of a popular and well-known blood dame. 

Aside from the usual suspects—some of who may be more into her blood—she encounters adventure, danger and of course handsome men of this world.
About the Author:
When not at her day job, Lorelei works on her novels, inventing new characters and places or parallel worlds where they dwell. Her writing has been compared to Ann Rice's more gritty novels, but with a humorous twist in the tradition of Charlaine Harris.
In her teens and adult years, Lorelei has always rooted for Dracula to be the dark romantic hero, but was often disappointed. She was considered odd because of her interests in the macabre, horror/vampire movies--way before it was "cool". Now she has written her own vampire series, this third book, Vampire Nocturne is steampunk.

When writing in this genre, you really do have to have a unique spin on it. Lorelei, yours seems to have that spin.
