I am very pleased to introduce you to Sotia Lazu, an author who I originally met at Goodreads. She is here today to announce the relaunch of her book Cherry Stem!
Cherry Stem Book Blitz and Giveaway
Turned at the cusp of a promising career in the adult
movie industry, Cherry Stem has to rely on her mesmerizing vampire gaze for her
meals and money. With the rent deadline approaching, settling for pocket change
isn’t an option, so she reluctantly decides to let tall, dark, and handsome
Detective Alex Marsden take her home for the night and fulfill her needs.
Only she gets more than she bargained for.
When Cherry meets Alex, she expects him to be nothing
more than another “girl meets boy, girl feeds from boy, girl erases boy’s
memories” hook-up. Once missing young women, the vampire council, and her
irresistible ex are thrown into the mix though, she realizes nothing is as
simple or random as she thought it was.
And Alex is either the biggest gift or the biggest
mistake of her un-life.

and sweatpants from my place. They’ll be too big for you, but at least the
pants have drawstrings. Should be good for the night.”

There are always flaws, something that needs covering up: a slightly jutting
stomach, love handles, scars, pimples. Something.
Alex was perfect.

skin stretch over rippling muscle made me itch to caress it. His shoulders were
wide; I knew that already, but the way they rounded, leading to his flexing
biceps, was a sight to behold. And that’s what I did. I beheld, wishing he was closer, that I could press my breasts
against his chest and see goose bumps rise.
probably have kept staring at his six-pack for much longer if his fingers
hadn’t gotten in the way. Splayed across his abdomen, they touched what I
longed for, ghosting their way down to the front of his pants. I wanted to lick
my way along the trail of fine hair beneath his navel that disappeared inside
his waistband. I sucked in a breath when he undid the button and another when
the zipper lowered, allowing his slacks to fall to the teal, tiled floor.

Book Title: Cherry
Stem (Book I of the Cherry Series)
Sotia cries at sappy movies and wishes she could take
in all the stray dogs in the world. She lives in Athens, Greece, with her
husband—whom she met through writing—their son, and their two rescue dogs, one
of which might be part-pony.
Her genres of choice are romances with a twist and
urban fantasy novels, always with vivid erotic elements. Her characters aren't
exactly hero-material at first glance; she likes making them fight for their
happiness. Still, the romantic in her can’t resist happy endings.
