All About Gregori

Congratulations to Joni of Oregon for winning the Be Still my Vampire Heart T-shirt and signed book! Thank you all for leaving comments. Come again October 25th for my next giveaway!

I'm so excited that in just two days, Gregori's book, Sexiest Vampire Alive, will go on sale! To celebrate, I've been going down memory lane with Gregori, checking out his dialogue in each book of the Love at Stake series, and posting some of the more memorable quotes on Twitter and Facebook. I have discovered that he talks a lot about 'hot babes,' and from the beginning, he called women 'sweetcakes' and 'Toots.' Everywhere he goes, whether it's DVN or Vanda's nightclub, the women know him and try to get his attention. His reputation as a playboy is certainly well-deserved. No wonder his book is titled Sexiest Vampire Alive! And oh my goodness, those of you with e-readers could be waking up Tuesday morning with a vampire playboy in your arms!

Here are some of my favorite Gregori lines--
From book 1, How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire: "I'm too sexy for my cape, too sexy for my fangs." "Sweet little VANNA. Come to Papa."

From book 3, Be Still My Vampire Heart: "We're a bunch of mutants! Just like the Ninja Turtles." And to Angus, when he had Phineas in a choke-hold-- "Whoa! Easy, Mongo."

From book 5, All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire: "Are we lining up to do the bunny hop?" To Ian-- "You might try smiling. You know the ladies love a guy with a sense of humor."

From book 9, Eat Prey Love: To Caitlyn, attempting to make Carlos jealous-- "Don't look. He's glaring at us with laser-strength eyeballs. The heat alone would melt your skin off." "I'm heartbroken, naturally, that I can't have you for myself. Let's go dancing, Toots!"

From book 10, Vampire Mine: To Marielle, the angel of death-- "How does that work? I mean, do you just go down a line, saying 'Eenie meenie mynie moe, sorry, dude, you gotta go'?"

What crazy things will Gregori say in Sexiest Vampire Alive? And what kind of woman will finally capture the heart of that rascally playboy? You can find out Tuesday! Meanwhile, if you leave a comment here about Gregori, you'll have a chance to win a signed copy of Be Still my Vampire Heart, plus a slightly-worn but clean T-shirt showing the cover of Be Still my Vampire Heart! A winner will be chosen at random. International entries welcome. And please check out the Appearances page on my website, www.kerrelynsparks.com, to see if I'll be signing Sexiest Vampire Alive in your neighborhood!

I hope he falls for a woman who'll kick his ass when he tries to call her Toots and makes him work for her attention.

I can't wait to see what kind of woman Gregori falls for. I hope that whoever she is, he falls hard and fast and has to work to get her. And that he has to get help from the others, since he was always eagar to help them and he is such a ladies man. Is it Tuesday yet?

I have enjoyed all your Gregori quotes on Facebook Kerrelyn! I did not realize how active he is in all the books. From the excerpt I was thinking you were going to pair him off with Simone.

Gregori is such a player!

I've been waiting on this for what seems like forever!

Na said...

Just wanted to let you know that vampires are my favourite paranormal creatures to read about. That said, your series are definitely going on my reading list. They are new to me now but from the sounds of it not for long. I can't wait to acquaint myself with Gregori.

Kat said...

I love the "Love at Stake" series and can't wait to read "Sexiest Vampire Alive. I've preordered the ebook so I can start reading it as soon as its released.Gregory is so funny and charming. You can't help but love the guy. I can't wait to see how he deals with the president and whether or not he can convince the president to declare the video proving the existence of vampires a hoax. It sounds like he'll have his hands full while he accompanies the president's daughter on her trip and I can't wait to see how he charms his way into her heart. I have no doubt this book will be just as addicting the other books in the series. I've read them all a few times. Thank you Kerrelyn for sharing your wonderful talent and stories with us!

Mountain Laurel said...

Gregori will fall for a DISCO DIVA! LOL
She can out dance him, and outsmart him, which will drive him crazy! She will be dressed to kill in an 80's throwback outfit and Gregori will drool! (OK...this is as good a guess as any I reckon!)
Can't wait til the book comes out!

Megan@Riverina Romantics said...

I Will always remember his "I'm Too Sexy" line!

JenniferJaseJacobs said...

I can't wait to see how this book goes. Gregori has alway's been one of my favorites.

Sarah said...

I can't wait to read Gregori's story. And I've really enjoyed reading the quotes you posted - such a wonderful sense of humor in your writing that makes your writing voice so unique! You and Janet Evanovich make me laugh while devouring your books late into the night!

KERRYLN SPARKS RULE!!! :) P.S. without your creativeness the world of books and vampires could not surive

I can't wait for the book to come out!! I love Gregori! It can always find something to make to you laugh about. I believe that Gregori will find a woman who is immune to his playboy charm and she will be able to see the real Gregori! Can't wait!

I am just beginning to read this series, have read books 1 and 2. I don't know much about the Gregori character, but have already fallen in love with the other characters and their situations. I can't wait to continue reading the books of this series!

Jo's Daughter said...

I too wonder what woman will make him fall.... I'm hoping a "beautiful" woman with substance. I have a feeling that deep down he's tired of being this object to women & just wants to be understood by that one woman of his dreams.... Can't wait to find out :D

Lori Meyer said...

I was actually able to snatch my copy early and will be sinking my teeth into it as soon as i finish the one I'm reading now. I love all the vampires from Love at Stake series they are so romantic, sexy, and funny but i think Gregori is freakin hilarious. I agree about him catching a woman with substance; he loves all the ladies but I think he needs just a bit more to stay with one forever. Love him think he is fangfreakinamazin

I am 36th in line to borrow the book from the library, and I've been in the queue for 2 months. I can't wait to see who Gregori falls for and has to work to win. He's so used to having them fall all over him, will he even KNOW how to win her? I can't wait to find out!

I hope it is a non vamp so they can give his momma some grandkids she would so love that!!

Teresa K. said...

Hi Kerry,

I love Gregori. He's so comical and he stays in trouble with Connor and Angus. You gotta love his attitude with life. He is just so human.

But the woman who he winds up with will be a little tougher and a little firmer when it comes to being serious. She will be the one who keeps Gregori in line. Thanks for all the wonderful stories you give us.

I have enjoyed the Love at Stakes series! Each one of the book have their own spark to them, and that makes them more memorable! I can not wait till Tuesday till I can get my hands on Gregori's story!
Thanks!

Gabby said...

Oooh! This sounds good! He sounds like he needs a woman that kick him into line when he calls her toots.

I mean Gregori may be hot but they're women out there who don't take kindly to being called 'Toots' maybe a no-nonsense kind of girl will be able to knock some sense into him!

Good luck with the book!

Love all the books, Gregori has been one of my favorite characters throughout the series. Can't wait to see what type of a woman claims his heart.

DebEA said...

I can't wait to read Gregori's story. I will be up all night waiting for Amazon to download my ebook. so I can start reading.

Stephanie said...

I definitely cannot wait for this book. I think it will take someone who is serious but appreciates a sense of humor because I do not see his wittiness going away anytime soon.

angelkiss0828 said...

I have been waiting forever for Gregori's book!!! He has been one of my favorite characters form the very start. He is funny, smart, handsome, and always willing to help out a friend. I fell in love with him from the start. Can't wait to read!!!!!!!!

Hazel S. said...

I am sooo looking forward to Gregori's book. Ever since i read the first book in the Love at Stake Series, i have always wondered what kind of woman will end up with sweet sexy gorgeous Gregori. I've waited years and years for his book. I bet its worth every minute.=)

Joni said...

Kerryln, Not much longer, I feel like I'm waiting for Christmas morning or something!! I really loved "Eat,Prey,Love" that was my fav. But all of your books are such fun to read. I so relate to your humor. Much continued success and many blessings.

It's going to be fun watching Gregori get hit by the same Love Bug that has caught everyone else. But at least we all know what's gonna happen in the end.

swisecarver2836 said...

OMG I can't wait to read this book. I have been waiting for this story since his character was introduced.

Nicoletta Campanelli said...

Yayyy FINALLY Gregori's book will be out in a couple of days. I think this story will be great just as all of the others. This time though the vamp is from "our" time period. Can't wait to read Gregori's funny quotes too I just love it when he pulls the older vamps' leg!!! Congratulations!!! Hopefully one day you might make it to Italy for a book convention!!!

Norma said...

I think Gregori will end up with smoeone that might not be the prettiest or the smartest gal in the world, but someone that will be able to handle his playboy image and outrageous behaviors.

5eab2e72-a032-11e0-952d-000bcdcb5194 said...

I hope and pray that Gregori finds a woman that loves him for who he is and tames him just a little, but leaves his wild side intact!

Lisa said...

I have always had a special spot for Gregori. In a way, I'm actually sad he's going to get his HEA. But, as long as he keeps his humor then I think we're all good!

Sharon said...

Gregori has put that ear worm in my head!!!! "I'm to sexy for my cape..." lol

thanks for the chance :)

Charla85 said...

I heart me some Gregori!! *looks around* Don't tell the others but secretly he's my favorite. I'm a little upset that he's going to have woman all his own but then I'm sure I'm not alone. It's always the ones we can't have that that we love the most. Anyways, love the books and I already can't wait for the next book *shrug* What can I say I'm greedy like that. ;)

Rebecca F. said...

Is Gregori too sexy for this blog? lol Can't wait to read!!

Adaiah said...

Looking forward to Gregori'story. I think Gregori will use a different term of endearment when he meets his mate. Enjoyed Connor's and Mariell's story. But my heart still belongs to Angus. LOL!

Wendy said...

I am so excited to find out what happens with Gregori! I also love all the other characters and can't wait for updates on them. Thanks for such well written and funny books!!!

Amy said...

Since Gregori is named the "Sexiest Vampire Alive", he sure has a name to live up to! I pre-ordered my copy already, can't wait to read it.

hieizzz said...

i hope the women he falls for doesnt take none of his flirty talk and makes him work hard to even get to first base. I cant wait to read about the women. email: zoro.cg@hotmail.com

kansassweet43 said...

I have been eagerly waiting for the next instalment in this wonderful series. Roman has been
my fav since I picked up his book way back when, you know for a vamp to lose a tooth was such an interesting concept for a story line. I loved it and have been hooked since then. Of course it is really hard to pick just one guy. I think Gregori is hilarious and i'm looking forward to the woman you have picked out for him. Conner is my next favorite vamp. His story was really cool. I loved the whole angel storyline.

Amy Valentini said...

"I'm too sexy for my cape, too sexy for my fangs." It made me laugh out loud then and still does now!! So glad Gregori is getting his time in the moonlight. Can't wait! : )

I have all of your books and I've never been this excited for one. It came out right after my birthday so I've been trying to con someone into buying it for me :)

Angie M said...

I always think of Gregori as the comic relief in your books! I can't wait to wake up to him tomorrow!

Paula Prisock said...

Just one more day for Gregori's book. He has always acted like he is just too HOT!! for any one woman so it's going to be cool to see how much he fights his feelings. Would love to have a t-shirt and hope someday can make it to a book signing. Just live too far off the beaten path I guess. Takes a while to get anywhere.

Kim said...

I was trying to think of my favorite Gregory scenes and am having a hard time. I really fell in love with him when he was on the phone with Roman after his fang was replaced. Laughing at him as only a true friend would when we get ourselves in embrassaing situations.

Suzie said...

I am so excited! Already pre ordered my nook copy. I might have to pull an all nighter. Love your books! Thanks!'

I love this series....I just can't wait for the new release. The series has it all, action, humor, suspense, and of course it is hot hot hot!

Rebecca at the Well said...

Ahhhh, Gregori, he is a total tease!! He needs a mate who can play, set, and match him :).

orelukjp0 said...

One more day. I can't wait.

Judy M said...

Okay, I am a little bit lost here. I just got Gregori's Sexiest Vampire Alive. After the first chapter I knew there was a book I had missed. When did Rajiv the were tiger join them? I thought Shanna was going to wait to be transformed, and really Sean a vamp? Corky & Casimir? Which book, books did I miss?????

Wyntir said...

I am sooo glad you put 'How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire' briefly on the Nook freebie list at B&N. I read it and promptly bought all the rest of your series. You mix just the right amount of drama and romance with your great comedic wit.

I am soo glad that it was Gregori's turn. He pretended to be such a playboy and has such a gentle spirit. I love his story. Abigail is a terrific match for him. :)

I thought Connor's book was my favorite, til I read Gregori's. Now there is a tie going on. :D
