Carlos, Man of Love!

Congratulations to the winner, Katie Dalton!! Please contact me at kerrelyn@earthlink.net so I can get your address. Many thanks to everyone for the comments! A big were-panther hug to you all!

TEN THINGS WE KNOW ABOUT CARLOS:
  1. He's a powerful were-panther from Brazil. In previous books, we have seen Carlos shift whenever he needs to. He doesn't have to wait for a full moon like other were-panthers. How did he get so powerful? Find out in three days when Eat Prey Love goes on sale!
  2. He let his friends think he was gay. Why would he do that? Find out in three days!
  3. He's a rascal! He used to watch his friend Toni get dressed. How will she react when she finds out he's not gay? See Carlos get what he deserves in three days!
  4. He likes to drive fast cars, especially black Jaguars.
  5. He likes to dance, especially the Samba.
  6. He likes to fight. He taught Toni martial arts, and we've seen him practice with Robby.
  7. He likes to win, and he can be sly and stealthy about it. See his sparring scene with Robby in The Vampire and the Virgin.
  8. He's a loyal friend. Even though he likes to tease his friends, he will charge to the rescue and risk his life if they're in trouble.
  9. He likes romance. He played matchmaker to spur Robby's romance forward. How will he react to romance in his own life? Find out in three days when Eat Prey Love goes on sale!
  10. He's a true hero. He rescued five were-panther children when their villages were razed to the ground. What heroic feats will he do in Eat Prey Love? Find out in three days!
In case you haven't noticed, the next book in the Love at Stake series, Eat Prey Love, goes on sale in THREE days!! I wasn't too obvious, was I? Leave a comment about Carlos, and one lucky commentor will receive a signed copy of The Vampire and the Virgin plus a signed spiral notebook featuring the cover of Eat Prey Love.

If I stole... I mean bought (cuz I totally can afford it.... *guilty look about fibbing*) would Carlos come visit me so we can go for a drive? I swear my bf (whom I love very much) won't know, I'll distract him w/ guitars and computers. =D It'd totally be innocent too, I swear... maybe. Just might have to flirt a little, teeny, tiny bit ;)

tsalvatore said...

I think everyone needs a man like Carlos. Can't wait to see how ths plays out.

You have a book coming out?! When?! . Looking forward to this one. I love the fact that he let everyone think he was gay. That is a new one for me.

Good luck with the launch and next time make sure you tell us when it is released. I'm still a little fuzzy on that;)

I'm so excited for Carlo's book. I cant't wait to read it. I'm very curious about him, I learned about him in the first Love Stake book I've read w/c is All I Want For.... , I really thought he was gay. =) It would be very exciting to know his own love story.

Can't wait to have all my questions answered IN THREE DAYS!! It will be great to finally learn more about Carlos and "his kind"!! Hopefully these three days will pass quickly, can't wait any longer.

griffom said...

i can't wait to read the book to see why he hides the fact that he is so powerful and why he tells everyone he is gay and i cant wait to see what toni or Ian do to him for watching her get dress. It sounds like a good day to call in sick and just read.............

Auntie B said...

Im sure Toni will have something to say about Carlos not being gay. Too back he taught her martial arts!

Teresa K. said...

When I first found out about Carlos it was in the Vampire and the Virgin. He was a really great friend when he tried to help Robby out.
However, I thought he was one sexy dark, handsome, panther. I thought I would love to have me some Carlos. I also loved his sense of humor. Oh how I wish I could find me a man like him.

Lea U. said...

OMG.OMG.OMG. Caaan´t wait!

Katie Dalton said...

Tuesday. Borders. Be warned. I will be outside pacing......lol
