GP: My Fondest Childhood Memory and the Inspiration Behind the House Millar

BLOG TOUR: Guest Post by Aine P. Massie


As most of you know, from October to November, I will be taking part in the House Millar Virtual Book Tour. Today, we are joined by the wonderful Aine P. Massie to talk a little about one of her fondest childhood memories and the inspiration behind the House Millar series. Curious? Why don’ t we get this show started?


Hello and thank you for supporting the virtual book tour for both Blood’s Voice (House Millar #1) and the soon to be released Blood Bound (House Millar #2). Both books are paranormal romance featuring the strange and eclectic House Millar. I appreciate the honour.

I’ll begin by letting you into a little of my life. Demijel asked me to share one of my fondest childhood memoires and so I will offer you each a virtual bowl of pineapple sherbet, a comfy seat, and a warm blanket to curl up in while you ‘listen’ to me ramble a bit….

Tour: 3* Review/Giveaway Blood's Voice @ Unputdownable Books

Blog Tour: Review/Giveaway Blood’s Voice by Aine P. Massie


Anya Millar had no memory of her life or an instruction manual on how to navigate the insane world of humans, biting, and reality. Instead, Anya has had to learn to navigate the world of love, life, and sanity while avoiding those that would see her dead or enslaved.

This is the ongoing journey of Anya and Nicholas, human loving vampires and the human they love, Declán. What makes it all more complicated is that they are abominations in their own world and Declán is a natural born vampire hunter called a Guardian.
Anya must come to terms with who she is and her missing past, Nicholas must win back the object of his eternal love while dealing with new cravings in his silent heart, and Declán must learn to destroy the very creatures that he has unequivocally given his heart and blood.

Tour: Interview with Nicholas and Giveaway

Character Interview and Giveaway with Áine P. Massie, author of Blood’s Voice and Blood Bound

Hi, everyone!

I am pleased to participate in Áine P. Massie’s Virtual Book Tour for Blood’s Voice (Book #1) and Blood Bound (Book #2) of the House Millar Series presented by Geas Publishing.


Welcome to Darlene’s Book Nook, Áine!

We are doing something a little different today. Rather than an interview or guest post, we are going to do a Character Interview with my favourite character from Blood’s Voice.

Character Interview with the Vampire Nicholas of The House Millar Series:

Thank you for allowing me this inside peek into what makes you, you.
Settling down in the chair across from me, I note Nicholas is dressed in tight black slacks, hair styled perfectly, leather bracer on his right wrist and over-sized watch on a biker band on the other, topped with a dark blueberry silk dress shirt.  The shirt was unbuttoned more than just the collar and at the bottom just a little.
Thank you for the invitation.  I love your site, by the way.

Now to the fun part… to view the interview and enter to win a copy of Blood’s Voice click on the banner or click HERE.

Tour: Interview with Anya and Declán from Blood's Voice


Hello everyone! Today we have two lovely guests in Throwing Books! Anya and Declán from Blood’s Voice by Áine P Massie. They accepted to come here to talk a little bit about themselves and about their relationship, their dreams and fears.

Hope you enjoy!

Q: I know this is a tough question, Anya when you found out that Declán was a Guardian, how did that affect you and your relationship? Did you felt betrayed, or scared, or if that changed something in the way you saw Declán?

Anya: Honestly? I was terrified but not of him, for him.  The way they proved to me he was more than just human didn’t help the situation either.  I wanted to kill Jonathan, not a normal attitude for me, I promise.

The fact it meant he was more endurent and would be better able to protect himself was a boon as far as I was concerned but the thought of him going out to fight others like me, still worries me… even now that he’s proven he can survive combat with a vampire.

In same ways it has affected our relationship.  Eh, before you but in Declán, let me explain.  The thought that he is supposed to kill me and yet loves me instead makes me worried for him mental health at times.  Will there come a day that the conflict within him causes him true pain?  Will others of my kind use his ‘perceived’ weakness of loving us against him?  Such things are a real concern, though he refuses to agree with me.

Declán: I disagree with her on this point.  I only stop or destroy those that seek to harm and kill humans.  There is no conflict to me.  Bad vampire – dead.  Good vampire – not dead.

Anya: See what I mean?  He’s very stubborn on his view of vampirism.

BTT – Hardest Book (10/27)

btt button

What’s the hardest/most challenging book you’ve ever read? Was it worth the effort? Did you read it by choice or was it an assignment/obligation?

That would have to be “Great Expectations.”  I had to read it in class back in 9th grade and it was long, tedious, and agrevating.  Of course, I think most of the problem came for the fact we had to read out loud and everyone read a piece.

I don’t even enjoy listening to books on tape or CD so this, to me, was murder, lol.  Add in the fact that not everyone was the best at reading in front of a class… Yeah.

Mind you, one I finally got a chance to sit down and read it all on my own I found out that I actually liked the book.  I just wished that the reading aloud part was skipped, no matter why the teacher thought it a good idea.


Don’t forget to leave a link to your actual response (so people don’t have to go searching for it) in the comments—or if you prefer, leave your answers in the comments themselves!
