It’s my pleasure to welcome author Gina Danna to the blog today. She’s going to tell us a little about her latest release, Her Eternal Rogue, a scorching paranormal romance. Gina’s graciously offering an e-book to one lucky commenter. Be sure to leave your comment by Saturday, July 6. The winner will be announced by Monday, July 8.
Welcome, Gina. Please tell us about Her Eternal Rogue.
Alexander Barrington flees his tyrannical uncle for the open seas where he becomes a ruthless pirate who turns vampire.
Captured and sentence to hang, a fate he must avoid to keep his vampire self hidden, a reprieve comes if he rescues Lady Lavinia Sinclair from the French pirates and returns her to her fiancé in England.
In this Vampire Diaries meets Pirates of the Caribbean, Alexander falls for the woman who makes him feel human and alive, but can he really have her without exposing what he is – a thief, the undead? The damned? Refusing to taint her innocence any further, he erases her memory of him and vanishes into the night but can he really exist without her?
Wow, that is going to be a terrific read. Now, tell us some things about your future releases, Gina.
Love my debut – Her Eternal Rogue (Regency w/ paranormal twist) but also excited about my release next April – Love & Vengeance (Ancient Rome – gladiators!) & next June – The Wicked Bargain (Regency – about a male courtesan).
Who would you cast to play your hero and heroine in an adaptation of your story?
Hard to answer – got the heroes figured out. For Her Eternal Rogue, Alexander was fashioned after Ian Somerhalder (Damon Salvadore – Vampire Diaries) & my gladiator in Love & Vengeance was Channing Tatum <sweet!>
If you could live during any era in time, when would that be? Why?
Probably America, 1861 & probably in Deep South – my mother’s family was from the South, Mississippi at that time. Why? I’m very drawn to the American Civil War. It changed this nation – I teach college US History & the War is the focal point to my classes – how settling in the US pushed us towards this calamity and how the after-effects are still around even today in 2013.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Rome. I’m ½ Italian (Sicilian actually) My family migrated from Northern Italy down to Palermo, Sicily before my grandfather came to the US.
What’s your all-time favorite movie? Why?
Tough Question – I have a lot, but probably Gladiator. It is a fascinating time in history, the Roman Empire.
Do you follow sports? Favorite teams?
Fave is a tie: Horseracing (love the Triple Crown & the Breeder’s Cup – wanted to be a jockey) & Baseball – ST. LOUIS CARDINALS!!!!!!!!! (Hey, I live in Cardinal-Nation!)
Thanks for stopping by, Gina. I’m sure one lucky reader will be thrilled to win a copy of Her Eternal Rogue.

Yay a history teacher! I fell in love with history by having an amazing European history teacher that taught more than dates and battles. Congrats on your novel!

Pirate vampires – sounds super sexy. So I’ll forgive for St. Louis Cardinals – Detroit Tiger fan!
LOL. Ok on b-ball & thank you 🙂
I love history and the American civil war is a fave of mine
I love romances set during the American Civil War…such a dramatic time in America’s history. I was born and raised in Virginia, so I was surrounded by so much history. Right now, I’m revising a series set during that time. I’m really enjoying writing it…so much potential for conflict between the hero and heroine.
