HOUSE RULES Blog Tour & Giveaway!

February 7, 2013 General, Giveaways 54



She-Wolf Reads is very excited to be participating in Chloe Neill’s HOUSE RULES Blog Tour!  This is one of my auto-buy UF series so it’s a special treat for me to be a part of this tour.  I recently read HOUSE RULES and loved it (read my review here) and I can’t wait to see what’s up next for Merit and the rest of Chicago’s supernaturals.


As part of the tour, Chloe created special images of her favorite quotes from the series.  Here’s the exclusive quote for She-Wolf Reads!




Is that not a perfect quote for this blog?  One, I love shifters.  Two, read HOUSE RULES and Jeff Christopher’s shifter animal will finally be revealed to you.  And it’s pretty damn cool.



House RulesTITLE: House Rules
 Chicagoland Vampires #7
  Chloe Neill
  Feb 5, 2013


Amazon | B & N | Book Depository |  



At the tender age of 27, Merit became a sword-wielding vampire. Since then, she’s become the protector of her House, watched Chicago nearly burn to the ground, and seen her Master fall and rise. Now she’ll see her mettle—and her metal—tested like never before.

It started with two . . . Two rogues vanishing without a trace. Someone is targeting Chicago’s vampires, and anyone could be next. With their house in peril, Merit and her Master, the centuries old Ethan Sullivan, must race to stop the disappearances. But as they untangle a web of secret alliances and ancient evils, they realize their foe is more familiar, and more powerful, than they could have ever imagined.

About the Author

Chloe Neill

Chloe Neill is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Chicagoland Vampires and Dark Elite series.

She was born and raised in the South, but now makes her home in the Midwest–just close enough to Cadogan House and St. Sophia’s to keep an eye on things. When not transcribing Merit’s and Lily’s adventures, she bakes, works, and scours the Internet for good recipes and great graphic design. Chloe also maintains her sanity by spending time with her boys–her favorite landscape photographer/husband and their dogs, Baxter and Scout. (Both she and the photographer understand the dogs are in charge.)

Chloe is represented by Lucienne Diver of The Knight Agency. Chloe is a member of the Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America.

    It’s really hard to pick a favorite book of the series because i like the series as a whole…. i guess i enjoyed a little more the one with the shifters ( can’t remember the title now arf) i enjoyed to see Merrit get friend with werewolves

  2. April Rice

    Some girls bite would be my favorite. It is the book that got me hooked on the series. I love the thing between Merit and Ethan.

    Some Girls Bite is my favorite. The first in any series I love usually is. It’s where I first meet and fall in love with the characters.
