Read Phoenix's 3rd Friday's Feature & Follow Hop and 100 Follower Giveaway

Q.If you could pick one character in a book, movie or television show to swap places with, who would it be?

I am having a hard time with this one! There are moments I would love to switch with someone. Anita Blake comes to mind. Yes, I would love to have a big puppy pile with some super hot shifters.

I Love when Andrea, her BFF, tells Kate Daniels:  That she took and ate food from Curran's hand, the Pack leader, she is now his mate. Yea, I would have liked to Andrea in that moment!  
When you think of all the scary bullshit these sassy, sexy characters go through, you have to roll your eyes sigh and say... Yeah I hate laundry, but it's a little more my speed!

I am super excited about tomorrows, well really tonight's and tomorrow's, Friday Feature & Follow! Sorry there is no review because we are having our first giveaway, if I'm doing this wrong let me know! 

Here it goes: 

Read Phoenix is giving away two wonderful books by:

One from each series! First book in the giveaway:
Meredith Gentry is a faerie princess turned private investigator. Merry, the only Sidhe royal to be born on American soil, fearing the continuous assassination attempts on her life thinly disguised as duels, flees the Unseelie Court in a final act of self-preservation. She is hiding from her family and her past in Los Angeles as a private investigator at Grey's Detective Agency.

Second book in the giveaway:
A serial killer is hunting the Pacific Northwest, murdering victims in a gruesome and spectacular way. The local police suspect "monsters" are involved, and have called in Anita Blake and Edward, US Marshals who really know their monsters, to catch the killer.

These are both the latest installments of LKH's work!  I'm having a bit of a hard time with this! Why, you ask? Well she is one of my very favorite authors... so yeah! I'm giving you what I love...I know, I know, geez what a sap. OK, so I'm tearing up right now... just a little!

  8. If it wasn't for the things Anita's put through, I'd have chosen her too without a doubt! But I don't know about switching place for the gruesome crime scenes or paranormal creatures after her. Magic and men though, I could deal with. ;) Lol! Great choice.

  9. Yes, I do think it would be cool to be Andrea! I don't know though, Kate is pretty badass and I love Curran so maybe I would want to be Kate!
