Blog Tour: Blood Drive by Lane Hart

Every year, the Fourth of July holds it's own significance for Sam West. It marks the day, fifty-eight years ago, when a vampire saved his life from imminent death, making him nearly immortal. So where can you find Sam today? Probably the last place you'd ever think to look for a vampire. Sam has grown lazy when it comes to his lifestyle and women, but that all changes during a college blood drive, when fate introduces him to the shy, sweet and beautiful Kate. Sam instantly falls head over heels for Kate, and is blown away when he uncovers the dangerous secret that even Kate doesn't know about herself. Her secret is the key to his roommate, Chris's, unfortunate dilemma, however Sam could never have predicted the explosive chemistry that erupts between Kate and Chris. Kate is a freshman living on her own at Madison University. After a life of confinement and loneliness, raised only by her father, she's ready for some excitement, including dating for the first time in her life. She's always known that her overprotective father's job was with the intense federal agency that eliminates supernatural "abominations" hiding within society. Excited about the prospect of her first date, Kate has no idea that Sam is one of those "abominations", or that she is about to find out that she is one as well. Uncovering her secret has Kate wondering who her mother was, and if her father knows her secret. If not, what will he do when he finds out? As if that wasn't enough to worry about, just when Kate and Sam's relationship starts heating up, Sam's roommate, Chris, sets his sights on Kate. Chris is certain that Kate and he are meant to be together, and he becomes determined to do whatever it takes to make her his. After Sam makes his own less than stellar decisions, he will have to decide if Kate's mistakes can be forgiven, and if he's willing to sacrifice himself to save her.

Trying to figure out what to do, I looked around at the other people grinding on each other and flushed. Yes, I very much wanted to do this with Sam, only maybe with less clothing and no audience.
When we came to an empty spot in the crowd I gasped as Sam grabbed my hips and pulled me to him, pressing my backside against the front of his body. I put my hands on top of his as they guided and worked my hips, swaying me to the beat of the music.
“Easy, right?” Sam asked, his lips against my ear.
“I have no idea what I’m doing,” I told him over my shoulder.
“You’ve got this,” he said, then I felt his lips and soft scruffy chin graze my bare shoulder, making goose bumps spread.
Letting my hip go Sam moved my hair to the side, and started a trail of kisses, across the open back of my dress and up the side of my neck. It was getting rather warm in the club so I reached and pulled all of my hair up off my neck, securing it with the elastic band I always wore on my wrist. Sam made a growl of approval before his lips went back to my neck and his mouth became almost frantic. I was pretty sure he was going to leave marks but I couldn't have cared less.
While his mouth stayed on me, Sam's massive hand sprawled across my stomach, pulling me tightly against him and pressing his increasing arousal into my backside as we danced. If you  could call it dancing. It felt more like what I could expect if I was lying in bed with Sam, just the two of us together before he made love to me. Heat started spreading all through me, along with nervousness at the thought that he was way out of my league.
