Vampire VS. Werewolf Giveaway
Thank you to FMB Blog Tours for hosting this Hop.
This giveaway will accept entries from now until the 20th of January.
This giveaway is open to followers who are 13 years of age or older.
It is open to International followers provided The Book Depository ships to you.
There will be one winner and the prize will be a vampire or werewolf book from the following choices. You can pick a different book in one of the pictured series if you need to get caught up, etc.
I will email the winner and they will have 48 hours to respond.
I like both Vamps and werewolves but if I had to choose, it would be a super hot, domineering, alphalicious werewolf! ;-)
Now onto the fun, staying true to the theme of the hop, I have paired some werewolf and vamp books. Which one would you pick?
You can vote on who's a better fighter, who's better looking, etc. Tell me how you judged them and who you would pick in the comments.
Adam, Sam, or Bran VS Ethan, Luc, or Jonah
Graham Winters VS Dmitri Vidâme
Joshua, James, or Quinn VS Samson, Amaury, or Gabriel
Clay Danvers or Antonio Sorrentino VS Bill or Eric
Rhoan Jenson VS Talen or Dage Kayrs
Lex or Cade Warden VS Zsadist or Qhuinn
I'd love to know what you're thinking. Please leave a comment!

I know only 3 series so far ( 4 when i would have read fated)but i'm only at the beginning of jr ward so it's difficult to answer youReplyDelete
To start: i would prefer a shiter mate too ( werewolf or feline one)
I think adam is stronger than bran or at least equivalent, sam i'm not so sure and i think they wouldn't have any trouble against ethan or luc ( perhaps with jonah but i think they would be more friend than ennemies^^
I would hope they would be friends because I love both of these series and I'd hate to think of any of them being hurt. :DDelete
Lover at Last looks great. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Vampires vs werewolves? Tough choice. I do enjoy them both but werewolves would be my choice. Clay Danvers gets my vote.ReplyDelete
debby236 at gmail dot com
That first question is the hardest. But, I think I'd have to go with the Chicagoland vamps. Ethan, Luc and Jonah are just so awesome.ReplyDelete
True. They are!:DDelete
I`d probably go with vampires. My favorite series are Vampire Chronicles by Anne Rise.ReplyDelete
Would you believe I've only read one of the series you've featured here--and not even the book you picked? LOL!
I used to read Romance a lot, though; and if I had had to contribute a pair to your post, it would definitely have been an Immortals after Dark (Kresley Cole) novel vs. a Dark Hunters (Sherrilyn Kenyon) novel. I juxtapose them because they both feature a mix of different mythical "monsters" and have a more fun vibe than a lot of other PNRs I've tried. But I also think there's no contest: IAD for the win! =D
To answer the hop question now . . . I'd pick a werewolf over a vampire so that I'd only have to worry about his issues once a month. ;-) In either case, though, his teeth will be a worry!
I read four of the IAD books but I got bored with the last one. It didn't seem to have as much spark as the previous books in the series so I quit reading them. Ha I almost forgot about them.Delete
The Dark Hunters, I've read quite a few of and liked them but I was waiting for the next book and forgot about them. That was a while ago. :(
Yeah they say women are bad. While we may bite your head off, they could do it in quite a different way. lol!
Vampires! I haven't read the Charlaine Harris series, but it does sound great.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway.
If you haven't read them yet, I'd start with the first book. The book pictured is the twelfth book in the series. :DDelete
Lover at Last Definitely! Thanks for being in the hop!ReplyDelete
Adam, Sam, AND Bran from Frost Burned. I love all 3 wolves and I think Mercy's the luckiest gal in the world to have all 3 in her life and caring about her. And for the vamps, I choose Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse novels. He makes being bad look oh so delicious. Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
I know, right? I love all of the wolves.Delete
As for vamps, I'd probably go with either Ethan or Zsadist.
Lover at Last looks great. Thanks.ReplyDelete
Lover at Last by JR Ward LOVE that series!!!ReplyDelete
I do too. ;-)Delete
I must choose Zsadist because he's da man (vamp). LOL. Unfortunately, this is the only series I have read of the ones listed. I have a lot of catching up to do!ReplyDelete
booklover0226 at gmail dot com
That's what I love about these Hops. I always walk away with ideas for other books to read. :DDelete
I have a weakness for Zsadist too. He's my favorite Black Dagger Brother.
Sorry I haven't read any of the books you posted so I can't really pick. I think the only vampire books I've read are the Twilight Series and the first book of Vampire Academy. For the werewolves, I only one I've read so far is Pack of Lies by Sara Dailey and Staci Weber. This just means I have a lot of reading to do!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway!
I loved Twilight and The Vampire Academy. You picked good books to start with! :DDelete
House Rules - because I haven't read either book, but this series is on my TBR. However, if I chose based on cover, I would pick Frost Burned. I just love that artwork!ReplyDelete
Big Bad Wolf - Because I just love werewolves.
Samson's Lovely Mortal - Because I've read this one.
Dead Ever After - Because I've read all but this book in the series. Now Bill or Eric, no contest Eric! 1. No one likes Bill. My book club are adiment on that. 2. VIKING! I've visited Norway and have a thing for vikings.
Fated - Because I've read this one. AND, definitely Dage. He is my favorite of the brothers. I just love his personality. He has had so much to handle in his life. Always worrying about everyone else.
Lover At Last - Because this is my #1 anticipated book for this year! Between the guys, Zsadist, because I always love the bad boy with all of the harsh past that needs love to overcome.

Wow! Someone actually followed the directions! Great job Josette! You get a great big gold star for today! :DDelete
I haven't read any of these books but I like House Rules the best. I relied on the cover and I think the girl on it is more of a badass than the girl on Frost Burned.ReplyDelete
Both are awesome series, two of my very favorite! I wouldn't want to mess with Merit or Mercy. They can both be pretty bad a**!Delete
I love Adam! He is so yummy! I can't wait for the next book that is supposed to have a short scene from his POV (squeal!!!). I haven't read the Chicagoland series yet, but its on my wishlist.ReplyDelete
I can't wait either. It's almost here!Delete
I'm glad The Chicagoland series is on your wishlist. It is awesome. :D
1.Idk I haven't read eitherReplyDelete
2.Same as 1
Thanks for the awesome giveaway!
Thank you for attempting to choose between the weres and vamps. It does make it easier when you know the characters in the series. lol!Delete
I haven't read all of these. I have a lot to catch up with. I love JR Ward's series. I haven't read Lover Reborn: A Novel of the Black Dagger Brotherhood yet, but it's on my wish list. I can't wait for Lover At Last. I've been waiting for this one. :)ReplyDelete
Great list here!!
I think most of us have been eagerly awaiting Lover at Last. It's awesome that Blay and Qhuinn are finally getting their book! ;-)Delete
I love the Kayrs brothers! I have JR Ward on my wishlist to try because I have been hearing so many good things about this series.ReplyDelete
susanmplatt AT hotmail DOT com
Both of these series are really good. ;DDelete
My picks for best looking are:ReplyDelete
1st set- Adam, Sam, or Bran: Adam all the way!!
4th set - Eric or Bill: Hands down, Eric!
6th set- Zsadist or Qhuinn: Zsadist of course!!
2nd, 3rd, 5th haven't read any of them.
Thank you for attempting to pick. It is much easier if you know the characters!Delete
I'd choose Dead ever after xDReplyDelete
My fave weres/vamps: Klaus, Sam, Eric, Damon, Spike, Nick xD
Thanks so much for the giveaway xD
What series is Klaus and Spike from? I'm not familiar with them. :-(
Well the only book I have read on this list is Dead Ever After. So they win that comp. in my eyes.ReplyDelete
But I clearly need to get reading cuz werewolves are definitely hot too!
Yes. Yes they are! ;-)Delete
So many of those books are on my TBR list, but I the only one I've read so far is Dead Ever After. I love Eric.ReplyDelete
I love the wolfs, NJ Walters series is super, I have read them allReplyDelete
vera28546 at yahoo (dot) com
I love werewolves, especially the ones from Patricia Briggs's books. Adam, Sam, and Bran are amazing, but my love will always be for Charles (from the Alpha & Omega series) :)ReplyDelete
Charles is awesome too. I have all of those books as well but I've loved Mercy's series longest. :DDelete
Damn I pretty much haven't read ANY of these books, but Clay and Jeremy totally beat Bill and Eric. Anyday. They are so much more awesome, fiercer, cooler, better, hotter, etc.ReplyDelete
I agree. I love my wolves!Delete
Set 1 - Bran because he is the oldest werewolf in the world (I think)ReplyDelete
Since I haven't read all of those books, that is the set I am most comfortable answering
Bran truly is a wise wolf. :DDelete
Okay I have to go with Adam,Sam,and Bran just because I love and adore them. Also I haven't Read Chloe's books yet.ReplyDelete
BTW you picked some awesome books.
koonie2888 at yahoo dot com
Thanks. I'm glad you approve!Delete
although i prefer werewolves, i think eric northman could kick some series ass in any fight. i LOVE me some of that tall yummy vampire... thanks for the hop.ReplyDelete
pepperpenn42 at gmail dot com
Ha! You can have Eric. Enjoy! ;-)Delete
I love them all but my first choice is vampires. Great books listed above.ReplyDelete
I'd pick Frost Burned, because I love Adam, Sam and Bran (and Mercy, too!)ReplyDelete
I love them too. They are one of my very favorite series!Delete
I am sticking with vampires though I am just as tempted to pick werewolves.ReplyDelete
Lover At Last looks amazing!
1 - Adam, Sam or Bran. They all 3 love Mercedes the Coyote, even though they should be trying to kill her or drive her away. Them's my guys!ReplyDelete
2 - Graham. Dmitri is just a little too prissy compared to Graham.
4 - Clay vs Bill & Eric. Clay was turned as a child and survived. He has every Werewolf in the World scared of him. He can take the vamps.
6 - Zhadist. I mean OMG, in his book, he was half starved and still managed to kick ass. Then after he started eating right and bulked out? Even the other Brothers give Zhadist room.
You sound just like me! :DDelete
Wow you are so going to make us think this out.ReplyDelete
1. Frost Burned- love the author and her boys.
2. I always loved the "Big Bad Wolf" /Graham Winters
3.I like the cover of Quinn's Quest and have been looking over the author, N J walters
4. "Bitten" with Clay I have always liked the author and is in my TBR pile
5. Fated is my next book in by TBR pile in a few days so Talen or Dage kayrs we will see.
6. Both of these are in my want list but Tri mates is holding more interest right now with the cover. lets see Lex or Cade Warden.
Judging by your choices, I'd say you lean more towards wolves than vamps. :DDelete
Sorry to make you think. lol!
1. I can't rightfully call this one. I've read Briggs, and have to admit it's one of the few were/shifter series that I actually like, but Neill has been on my TBR list, simply because I hear such great things about the series.ReplyDelete
4. I don't know about Bill, but Eric would wipe the floor both in a fight and in the looks department.
All others: I haven't read any one of these. No opinion.
I go for vampires 95% of the time, simply because werewolves are too possessive and aggressive (which I associate with a testosterone-driven mess instead of someone who's masculine and protective).
That's okay Toni. That leaves more wolves for me! :DDelete
I haven't read any of these books! They all look so good though! :) Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
I haven't read any of the series you posted so I guess I need to get started on them. I have read the Twilight series which I enjoyed and also the Kane/Cabot series by Teresa Medeiros that was very good. I prefer werewolves. Thanks for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
thompsonem3 at aol dot com
I've read Twilight but I haven't read the Kane/Cabot series. Is it any good?Delete
This is a hard decision. Based on the books listed above I would pick Vamp. I love the JR Ward books and R Zanetti books. Thanks for being part of the hop and for this awesome giveaway. emilyb0924 at gmail dot com.ReplyDelete
I love the shifters, so, I got to pick them for the better looking. I am partial to the rugged men who are animals....lol I am also one to snuggle up to a warm body, Vamps sure don't have that reputation.ReplyDelete
Thank you for the giveaway,
I agree! ;-)Delete
I love both creatures but tend to be more drawn to he vamps. In a fight I also think they're more likely to win because of their extra abilities. I'm a huge fan of Ward's BDB and will vote for Qhuinn every time! The only other books I've read from the list are Armstrong and Harris books.ReplyDelete
Damn hard choice!! I'm getting more and more into werewolves (especially Alpha male wolves) lately! That being said, all those covers are AWESOME!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great giveaway!!
I love both, vampire and werewolf. It's hard to choose either one. But i recently read a lot book about werewolf and shifters, so i think this monty i choose werewolf. My favorite was Adam Haupman from Mercy Thompson Series by Patricia Briggs!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for giveaway :)
I'd pick werewolves or shifters every time with only one exception. I love all the Black Dagger Brotherhood !ReplyDelete
I'm really looking forward to Frost Burned as Patricia Briggs is one of my favourite authors.
I love vampires more, so I vote for Bill and Eric.ReplyDelete
I would pick lover at last.ReplyDelete
Lover at Last. i love the boys, even when they annoy me.ReplyDelete
I'd choose werewolves. Love Rhoan Jenson from Keri Arthur's series and love Sam and Bran from Patricia Briggs' series. Looking forward to Frost Burned by Patricia Briggs.ReplyDelete
Thats soo hard! I love both of them! Like I love Eric from the Sookie Stackhouse books but Clay from the Kelley Armstrong series!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the giveaway!
I have only read two of the above series (Mercy Thompson and Southern Vampire), although a couple are on my TBR list. I love both series and the boys in them, but Adam is definitely my favorite between Adam, Sam, and Bran and Eric is definitely my favorite between Eric and Bill. I like both vamps and werewolves, but would choose to be a werewolf as well!ReplyDelete
lol! Werewolf power!Delete
I'd definitely love Eric from Sooke Stackhouse series. Thanks for the great giveaway!ReplyDelete
Tough choices. Well, lets see:ReplyDelete
1. I would pick Bran cause he is so dangerous and tough and intriguing. If only Patricia Briggs would write his story. Haven't read the Chloe Neill series, so can't really say how much I would like any of those characters.
2. Graham! The big bad alpha falling for a kindergarten teacher. Could it get any more delicious? Never liked Dmitri much.
3. James - I like that he is older and settled down. NO impertinence of youth for him. :D Haven't read the Tina Folsom series though.
4.Clay!!! He's like my favorite hero ever. I have a thing for shifter heroes who are extremely close to their animal side. I love Eric as well, but he can't compare in my eyes. :D
5. Haven't read either book, so can't really say.
6. Z!!! Another from my favorite heroes list.
FYI, I generally prefer shifter heroes (as can be noted from my choices). :D
Love the question, BTW. It was nice to actually go through the choices and consider all the options.
And that was one looong post. :D
Ha! I'm sorry but most of my posts are.Delete
the first one adam would get my vote only because you didnt say ben. the last one definately Zsadist. i have not read any of the other books but just by the covers i would have to go with the werewolf books. i really do want that new patricia briggs book though i also want the new jr ward one i cant choseReplyDelete
kaholgate at ymail dot com
I don't know how I forgot Ben! :DDelete
I have only read the Patricia Briggs and LAuren Dane books so I vote wolfie all the way!! I love a sexy possessive growly alpha wolf!! Sigh!ReplyDelete
I totally agree! ;-)Delete
Yikes what a tough choice. Lover At Last is at the very top of my TBR list for 2013 but I have also been trying to get my hands on Chloe Neill's Chicagoland Vampire series since it is so pricy so not sure which of those I which of those I would choose.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much!
mmafsmith AT gmail DOT com
You can't go wrong with any of the choices! Their all good in my opinion!Delete
Even though I am a Vampire fan, I will give it to the Werewolf covers. They all (except the top on because she had a sword!) looked like they would win a fight against the Vampires. But since you are a Werewolf lover, I think it may have been planned? Come on you can tell me! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks for the great giveaway,
lol! Now that you mention it....Delete
No, I just picked books that I like from both categories and tried to match them up.
I can't help it that the cover artists of the werewolf books make them look tough!:D
I haven't ready any...I live in a cave! I would love to get my eyes on these! Thank you soooo much for the chance!!!ReplyDelete
Ha! Don't feel bad I live under a rock sometimes. :DDelete
I have to admit that I haven't read any of these books! Although..I would love to! I know the true blood series, and love bill and eric and alcide(wow, no clue how to spell that name), and Sam! I am finally reading the first Charlene Harris Book, but haven't been able to reaaaally get into it yet. I'm sure I will.ReplyDelete
The books are soooo much better than the show. :D
I definitely prefer Vampires! Lover at Last looks amazing! Thank you for the giveaway!ReplyDelete
I would love to start the Black Dagger Brotherhood Series and prefer vampires! Thanks :)ReplyDelete
Vampires definitely! I'd love Lover at last!ReplyDelete
I definitely love the Vamps the best! I will be starting the BDB series soon, already have the first 2 and the 3rd is on it's way to me. Thanks so much for the great giveaway.ReplyDelete
I have to go with vampires too! As for which book I'd pick, I'd have to go with Dead Ever After. I love the series and I'll be sad to see it end.ReplyDelete
Me too Steph!Delete
I haven't read any of these! Time to make a list :)ReplyDelete
I love werewolves the best. I haven't read very many of these book. I loved Big Bad Wolf though.ReplyDelete
Yes, I loved it too! The two books pictured have been my favorites from this series so far.Delete
I mostly choose wolves! I love vamps, but werewolves always draw me in.ReplyDelete
As far as the books listed above, I have not read most of them, but from the ones that I do...here it goes.
1. Adam because it seems he has his stuff together and
I am not sure about Sam.
4. Eric because I love his take charge/no nonsense
Now I have so many more to add to my TBR. :)
Thank you for the wonderful giveaway.
Great list! Many of them are on my to read list! I've gotta vote for Patricia Briggs wolves though- tough, smart, sneaky and strong! ;)ReplyDelete
I'd pick lover At Last, although I prefer werewolves.ReplyDelete
really tough choice. i love both of werewolf and vampireReplyDelete
