Blood Of The White Witch Blog Tour with Lacey Weatherford

It’s Saturday night and I’m lying in bed with my Kindle when my phone buzzes. A quick glance makes me SQUEE because it’s Vance Mangum, resident bad boy HOTTIE from the Of Witches and Warlocks series. He’s wondering if I’d like to go to Denny’s for a late night snack. I’m all for a little one-on-one time with my favorite book crush so here we are…..

Belinda: So what did you end up ordering?
Vance: I’m going with the Super Bird and Onion Rings… hmmm maybe I should rethink the rings seeing that’s not good for kissing breath.
Belinda: We’re going to kiss??? *I start to hyperventilate*
Vance: Umm? *he scratches behind head and looks away* Not what I had in mind but….who knows the night is young *chuckles nervously*
Belinda: So where’s Portia tonight? It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to chat with her.
Vance: I put her to bed early. Poor girl’s worn out *chuckles again*
Belinda: Well, this was a surprise. I know you guys have had a lot on your plate with family and stuff. It’s really good to see you again Vance. So what’s up?
Vance: You’ve been a good support and friend so I just wanted to check up on you and make sure everything going ok.  *He leans back against the booth seat, resting his chin on his knuckles*
Belinda: Oh you’re such a sweetheart! Things are doing pretty good. Still blogging and writing, causing mayhem and mischief wherever I go!
Vance: Oh yeah, I heard about RomCon and your photos! Who knew you liked it rough? *winks and grins*
Belinda: *I can’t help but blush a little* Hey that was all Lacey!! I plead my innocence.
Vance: Yeah, she said you’d blame her. I think you’re both wild!

The waitress brings our food and almost spills it all over me as she gives googley eyes toward Vance. The hot bus boy comes by to clean the neighboring table shortly after. He gives the same kind of eyes and almost trips over his feet.

Belinda: Lol doesn’t that bother you? The constant staring?
Vance: Someone was staring? *he shakes his head* They must have been looking at you.
Belinda: Yeah, I have that effect on women *I roll my eyes at him* Gosh, you’re a dork Vance! You’re a walking testament to sex on a stick. Look! *I point at the 80 year Grandmother trying to discreetly stare over at Vance over her menu* Do you see the drool?? Oh wait, her dentures fell out! *I gag a little* No, you’re right, Grandma’s looking at me! * I wink at the old lady and get an angry glare in return*
*Vance chokes on soda from laughing and almost shoots it out of his nose*
Belinda: HAHAHA now that’s attractive!
Vance: I see eating with you is going to be a dangerous adventure *he tries to stop coughing*
Belinda: You should see me in bed!!

Vance has to excuse himself from the table while he goes to the restroom to stop choking. I can’t help but lean over and watch him leave. Man, he has a fine looking butt! I notice I’m not the only one and I seriously hear a huge sigh in stereo. Waitress rushes over

Waitress: Is that your boyfriend? My gosh, he's HOT!
Belinda: No, just a good friend, but I do sleep with him every night in my dreams. Dude kisses like a God!
Waitress: Oh I bet, I’ve been having fantasies of … *she looks away embarrassed* never mind...
Vance: Fantasies of what Belinda? *he cocks his eyebrow with a mischievous grin as he returns*
Belinda: *I stammer* Ummm… nothing. *blushes 100 shades of red*

Waitress excuses herself and Vance slides back into the seat. He picks up half the sandwich and takes a bite. Awkward pause as Vance’s eyes never leave mine.

Vance: My, what a lovely shade of red you are Belinda *he chuckles* What color is that exactly?
Belinda: It’s “shut up Vance and eat your food magenta”
Vance: So is that the face your husband wakes up to each morning?
*It’s my turn to choke on my food*
Vance: Whoa, take it easy there… do you need mouth to mouth? *he leans forward real close, grabs my hand intimately* It’s called chewing Bels... you should try it. *He grabs my face and smacks his lips on my forehead* You crack me up!
Belinda: That’s me. I aim to entertain! *rolls eyes* I think you owe me for making me choke so badly. You should let me ask you any one question and you have to answer it honestly.
Vance: Fine by me but the street goes both ways. If I answer a question, you answer a question. Deal?
Belinda: Okay, bring it! Rock, paper, scissors?
*Vance and I assume the position. I do rock and Vance does paper. Vance points to me with a grin*
Belinda: Okay… let’s see. What went through your mind when you saw Portia walk down the aisle toward you at your wedding? I loved how Portia said your eyes lit up.
Vance:  *sighs and leans back in his seat with a secretive smile on his face and for a moment, I knew he wasn’t here with me as he remembered. He leans forward and rests his chin on his hands* That was probably one of the single most moving moments in my life. Are you sure you want to know everything?
Belinda: *I lean in closer* Yes please!
Vance: I couldn’t believe this girl had chosen me. I’d wanted her for years and now, she was finally going to be mine. In all honesty, I just wanted the wedding to be over. I wanted to sweep her off her feet and get her back to our room where I could make love to her all night long.  This whole time I’ve had this amazing connection with Portia that I’ve never had with another human being. To be able to consummate our relationship in this way, to me, took everything to a completely whole new plane. I never knew a person could love a person that much. I want to say she completes me but maybe it’s just that we complete each other.
Belinda *deep sigh, swoony grin and I reach for the menu to fan myself*
Vance: I’m not sure if this is the answer you were looking for but just know I’d be lost without her. She’s one of the most pure and beautiful things I’ve ever known. *he glances away before turning back with a grin* Sorry I didn’t mean to get sappy.
Belinda: Wow *I’m a little speechless* You’re so perfect Vance. No wonder you have girls swooning all around the world. Portia’s such a lucky girl.
Vance: Oh believe me, I’m the lucky one. So, ready for your question? Remember you promised honesty.
Belinda *sweats a little* Okay, I’m ready… I think.
Vance:  *He leans across the table and he draws lightly on the back on my hand with his finger. He stares at me without blinking, his eyes twinkling with mischief*  If there was no Portia, and you had the opportunity to go out with me and you could do anything you wanted, what would happen on this date?
Belinda *I gulp, all flustered and search for the waitress* CHECK PLEASE!!

What do you think MY ideal date with Vance would be?
Be creative!

Blood Of The White Witch
Book #3 in Of Witches & Warlocks series
YA Paranormal Romance

When love came knocking on the door of novice witch, Portia Mullins, in the form of handsome bad boy, Vance Mangum, she had no idea how quickly the attraction between them would escalate. Now she finds her relationship with Vance taken to a whole new level, in a way she had never dreamed possible at this point and time of her life. Yet even as the personal connection between them explodes, the two quickly find themselves in a world of shifting balances. While searching for Vance’s missing mother, they realize they are suddenly unsure of who to trust, learning that sometimes things are not always as they appear. When Vance’s demon characteristics abruptly begin to resurface again without warning, the horrible truth comes out, crashing down upon them and shattering some of their most precious dreams. Once the deadly plan is uncovered, Portia and Vance find themselves hastily rushing against the hands of time in an attempt to stop an ancient ritual from being performed. But will they be successful before fate reaches out to twist them cruelly, possibly separating them and changing magic forever? Passion, loyalties, powers, and family ties, will all be tested when dangerous adventures abound in this third installment in the Of Witches and Warlocks series, Blood of the White Witch.

Tich said...

Love this series!!!! Can't wait to read this one....... ;)

Jamie.Fiske said...

What a HoT interview. Can't wait to start the series! :)
Thanks Belinda!

iarvd said...

Does there have to be a date? Can't you just skip to the bedroom? I mean everything else is just filler, right? LOL

Ashley Leturgez said...

That is some magnificent imagery right there. I'm red all over! <3

Belinda said...

ROFL @iarvd You read my mind! That's eactly what I would've said :)

I loved doing this interview. I actually did go to Denny's last night but with the author and she "channeled" Vance while we did this. I swear people must have thought we were crazy because we were laughing so much!

I'm so excited everyone gets a free copy!

Belinda said...

I believe my initial response was a gallon tub of whipped cream, restraints and biting. Need I say more? LOL *blushes hard*

Jennifer said...

I'm thinking your hands must be tired from all the blogging, so maybe he could give you a nice hand massage...his hands, your whole body. Sound good?

Jennifer said...

Oops, I got so excited for you there I forgot to add my email!


Chelsea Rafferty said...

OMG, I love these interviews you do with Vance, they completely CRACK me up! LOVE it!

Hmm, you're ideal date? Two naked bodies, a bottle of wine and melted chocolate...need I say more?

And damn, I'm going to have to grab the 1st and 2nd if I'm getting the 3rd... BRILLIANT on the marketing LOL :D so excited to read this.. My TBR pile is getting out of control eek.

Teresa K. said...

Wow Belinda,

Great interview, but if he would ask me that question I woulds say, Vance screw the date. Let's just skip to dessert, I would cover your body in whipped cream and chocolate and lick my way down to all the important parts and have wild hot monkey sex, till neither of us could feel our bodies anymore.

How do you like that for a date? lol

Oooh! Thanks for letting us know about this series! I'm excited about reading it, and you make me laugh, Bels!

Can't wait to read it.

T.M.Footen said...

Sooooo looking forward to reading the book! Boosnob, thanks!

Leanne109 said...

Forget the date! Straight to the bedroom! Bring chocolate! lmao


Connie Brentford said...

What a great interview and idea! We ALWAYS want more from the characters we love. Can't wait to read the book. : )

Suzan said...

Hmm, I say tease him with a club first where you get to indulge in dirty dancing before taking him home and demanding a full body massage to ease your muscles after all that dancing, whatever happens from there.... ;-) Gotta say Vance does sound very hot and very swoonworthy in the interview, who wouldn't want a guy like that!

Ryl said...

I'm thinking that an ideal date with Vance would pretty much just mean he needs to be present. *grin* Excellent interview!

coxie said...

I'm thinking that date isn't REALLY what you'd want to do with Vance. Skip all of that and get to the good stuff. ;)

romer said...

I have to read this book

katie said...

That was absolutely awesome! I can't wait to read it!!!!! :)
katie :)

wanda f said...

Fantastic interview and excerpt cant wait to read this .

lamia said...

Looking good, can't wait to read it :)

Julie S said...

This series sounds really cool!

Amy said...

Thanks for the interview! I would love to read this one.


winnie said...

Loved the interview! :) Need to read the rest of this series!


Anonymous said...

Loved the BLOG. Ok, Now I really need book 2, if possible. Thank you so much!! Can't wait to read.


missyebookmail said...

Started reading the interview but stopped because I saw there were some spoilers as I'm right in the middle of reading "The Trouble With Spells" and I didn't want to know what was coming yet.

Love the book so far and can't wait to read the rest of the series! My niece who just turned 15 loves stories with vampires, zombies, witches and such. So far, I feel this is a book that would be appropriate for her to read also. I really like the idea that they are witches but Christians who believe in Jesus also. I've never seen that in a book before! Very unique viewpoint!

I have to admit I'm a Twilight fan, and so far, I think Vance and Portia's love story could definitely give Edward and Bella a run for the money!

Can't wait to get Blood of the White Witch! I'm on a very limited income, so I love these blog tours that allow me to grab free books. Hopefully the other 2 will be available on tours at some point. Great job Lacey! And I will definitely come back to this interview and finish reading when I get further along so there are no spoilers for me!

LMWeatherford said...

HA! I've come four times to comment today and get caught up sending out emails and I've forgotten each time!! LOVING THE COMMENTS!! Thanks for the fun!!

Now I have to say that what I think Belinda would proposition Vance with, might not be appropriate for just any eyes perusing this blog!! BUT I can tell you it would involve whips, restraints, and TEETH! And that's just brushing the foreplay!! HA HA! I promise she would be able to make a fortune selling the tapes when she was done!!

She will get on and try to deny this...but we all know better! Right? LOL

Thanks for hosting me Bels!! I love you!!

Belinda said...

What the heck people? I would only want to TALK with the guy! You know... about life, philosophy... favorite books!! I'm NOT the horn dog you're looking for *waves finger in Star Wars-like fashion* I would not want to have SEX with the guy! He's not my type! *chokes* Someone has to believe me, right? LOL Man, you guys know me to well! Where the heck is my flogger?

ali said...

yes Bels, i'm sure you would just want to share your favourite books with him!!
your date would involve a motorcycle ride to a beautiful picnic spot, secluded and private. Vance would strip you naked, massage you from head to toe, feed you strawberries dipped in cream, then he would tie you to the tree while having his way with you.

Wicked said...

I can't put here what your date would consist far as I know there is no "adult content" warning on your blog. Let's just say, there would be licking involved.

latishajean said...

I love Vance that was such a great interview so fun! I love the blog tour I have read this one and love it! Thanks for sharing!

Writing Innovations said...

Awesome Denny's Dinner :). I loved it!

Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries sounds like an ideal date to me :). Yummo!

This book looks awesome can't wait to read it :).


Writing Innovations said...

Forgot my email - bkwalkerbooks at comcast dot net

LMWeatherford said...

HAHAHAHAHA! Sharing books!! I love it!! Yep that's EXACTLY what she would do! *Rolls Eyes* Maybe if the books she were sharing were about BDSM! LOL

aobibliophile™ said...

lol! this cracked me up Bels! for a minute there you convinced me that you actually had a date with him. next time, you both go to an amusement park - ride the roller coaster and those super speedy rides that would give you more chances of being physically closer to him without feeling awkward or shy. then afterwards maybe you can have coffee together someplace quiet...*winks* c",)


Athena said...

Wow...umm, for one I don't think you would make it out on a date.....and I don't think you would be just chillin....much less any restful activitys til the sun came up

Krysykat said...

Ok now I want Denny's, maybe some artery clogging fried cheese melt sandwich. Mmmmmmmm.

Kristina's Books & More said...

Great interview! Can't wait to read the book! :)

Denise Z said...

Okay - I think a date with bad boy Vance would include a hop on a motorcycle, driving through the Dairy Queen, and off into the autumn woods to enjoy the moonlight, stars, and rustling of the leaves. Sharing companionship and a nosh while the tension and heat build culminating in an electrifying kiss. Thank you for the fun today and for the wonderful giveaway opportunity.


Pamela Reiser said...

Nunumu says

I love book series,especially with steamy vampire romance. The perfect date would have a little neck snackin' for dessert!

Belinda said...

I love it! See I didn't need to write my response.... ya'll did it for me! I'm all for hot monkey Vance sex :)*shakes head* Only a romance reader would fall head over heels for a book characters and fantasize about doing naughty things with him. At least I'm not alone, right??

What do you think the chances are we can convince Lacey to write "Vance.... the FORBIDDEN chapters"? LOL

Thanks everyone for commenting today and don't forget to follow on to the next stop!

Rhonda said...

This sounds like a fantastic book. I am looking forward to reading it and the series.


Allyson said...

Chelsea Rafferty said...

Okay, I came yesterday, got my 3rd free book... went to amazon.. got the FIRST book because I wanted to know the "series" before I started reading... *fans self* OMG is all I have to say. I'm truly in love with all the characters right from the first book and it was completely worth buying.. I'm going to go snatch up book 2 on amazon now and then put the one I got here on my kindle THEN I'll be back for the 4th because this just totally became my favorite series. Oh yes.. already posted this on my Paranormal Addicts fb page and I think hopefully some of them came here too *grins* And I'm just letting them know again.. its AMAZING guys.. get the first book first lol :D LOVE it *swoons*

DANIELA said...

Ideal date? Skip the preliminars and go directly to enjoy Vance. What about hot chocolate sauce and teeth??

Ideal date ?

Long drive, to a lovely Hill top restaurant that has a flare for the romance and a panoramic view of the city.

Then find a cozy little spot, maybe at same said restaurant (maybe not) and get to know one another.(Talking,just talking)

Aydrea said...

Haha I love these interviews, they are so awesome!'

As far as an ideal date, I'm sure you would skip the date and go on to other things. lol!

Lieder Madchen said...

Ay ay ay, who knows what could happen? I am so jealous that you even got to go to Denny's with him. :)
