Blog Tour and Giveaway: Bitter Fruits by Sarah Daltry

Bitter Fruits (Eden's Fall #1)
Author: Sarah Daltry
Genre: New Adult Urban Fantasy Romance (18+) 
Publisher: Escape Publishing

Date of Publication: December 1, 2013

For fans of dark urban fantasy comes a novel that questions why forbidden fruit is always the most tempting...

A vampire-themed masquerade party isn’t really her scene, but Nora is sick of frat parties and bars. When she meets Alec, the appeal suddenly becomes clear. It’s obvious that they’ve been struck by the same intense mutual attraction, but Alec keeps his distance. Intrigued despite herself, Nora pushes a little deeper — and discovers Alec’s unimaginable secret...

Nora is not afraid of following Alec into the darkness, but the choice is soon taken from her. Someone is hunting her — someone tied to the secret and desperate to see it play out. But when Nora finally meets her aggressor, she finds herself hopelessly drawn to him. She needs to make a choice between the two men, but can she save them both, knowing one is destined to die? 



I storm out of his office feeling superior until I get into the hall. Away from Henry, the reality of what he is saying, of what Alec has told me, starts to sink in. What am I doing? Henry is right; I can’t fight supernatural forces from as far back as the Bible. I can barely pass statistics!
I don’t know where to go or whom to turn to, and I debate about running back to Henry and asking him to save me from myself. That won’t solve anything, though, because his solution will be to let Alec face his death alone. It may have only been a week, but there is something about Alec; I feel like something brought us together for a reason, that maybe I can save him. It’s probably arrogance, because how many years of human history have passed? What makes me, a 22-year-old girl from Delaware, think that I can change something that has never been changed since man began? Yet, despite all evidence to the contrary, I do think I can; I just need to be pointed in the right direction.
I jump when a hand brushes the back of my neck. I turn and Caleb, along with all of his danger and desire, stands behind me. He smirks, seeing that he has accomplished his goal of catching me off guard. The dark hall of the academic building seems to glow where he is standing and I take a deep breath, warning myself not to find him attractive. When his lip curls up in an actual smile, though, my body stops listening to my mind. I really wish I could turn it off when it comes to Caleb; I know he is wrong for me and that he and his brother do not get along. Knowing that Alec sees him as a threat doesn’t help either, but still my nerves seem to react to his body as he gets closer.
I always seem to find you talking to that professor of yours. Should I warn someone of ethical violations?’
He’s dating my roommate,’ I reply. ‘And I am dating your brother.’
Dating. That is such a silly word,’ he teases, closing the gap between us completely and running a hand along my neck to the back of my head, his fingers lacing their way into my hair. ‘My brother is lucky but he is also stupid. I don’t suppose he warned you
He told me everything,’ I say.
I sincerely doubt that. I also sincerely doubt that you will be any different from his last failed love affair. Mortals are weak and none weaker than a woman in love.’
I may be just a college girl and I may be naive, a little stupid, and in over my head. However, no one calls me weak and I stomp on Caleb’s foot, breaking free of his hold. He groans and looks at me, surprise mixing with admiration in his expression.
Don’t call me weak. Your brother seems to be convinced that he will die, unless he finds someone, so how about you help me?’ I ask.
You really don’t know, do you?’ His amusement irritates me and makes me feel like a child.
Know what?’
Why on earth would I help you prevent my brother from being killed when I am the one to kill him?’
