Blood Ties Character Interview with Jayden (AND a Giveaway) *CLOSED*

Hey guys! Jayden from Mari Mancusi’s Blood Coven series stopped by today for an interview! =) Enjoy!

Who is your famous crush?

Okay – this is a professional crush, not a romantic one, but I am obsessed with the Dog Whisperer. As you know, I love animals and work with them on a daily basis at the Comedy Pet Theater in Vegas. Caesar has such a way with dogs–I’d love to spend a week with him and learn all his secrets. Then maybe the mischievous rescues who are too smart for their own good would actually listen to me for once!

If you could travel to anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

I’d travel to Africa and go on a safari. It would be amazing to see all the animals out there, living wild and free. Unfortunately, I’ve never been anywhere outside of Vegas. My mom just doesn’t have that kind of money. Maybe someday…

What is it like being a hemophiliac?


It’s not an easy life. If I get even the tiniest cut, I could easily bleed to death. So I have to be very careful. Which means I can’t do some of the more adventurous stuff some of my Vegas friends like to do. And I probably shouldn’t be working with dogs and cats who could possibly scratch or bite me and cause a major problem. But I love animals so much, it’s a risk I’m willing to take. 

Why would you risk your life to save Sunny?


Because she’s worth it. She’s worth everything. And her boyfriend just doesn’t seem to get that, which is so unfair to her. I don’t know how anyone could treat someone like her as second priority. If I ever had a chance with her I’d dedicate my whole life to making her feel safe, happy and loved.

Is there anything that you would like to reveal about yourself that readers do not know?

My life was always pretty much an open book until recently. As readers will learn in Blood Ties, I was bitten by a vampire and now am slowly morphing into one myself. I’m not sure how this will affect my relationship (or lack of one) with Sunny. I know she’s very into vampires, so I’m secretly hoping it might work out in my favor… But don’t say anything to her–I don’t want her to think I’m trying to come between her and her boyfriend. Even if he doesn’t deserve her…




Aww! Isn’t Jayden a sweetie! If Sunny doesn’t want him, I’ll take Jayden. icon wink Blood Ties Character Interview with Jayden (AND a Giveaway) *CLOSED*


If you want to know more about Blood Ties, here is a synopsis:

BloodTies Blood Ties Character Interview with Jayden (AND a Giveaway) *CLOSED*

The final battle is brewing between Vampires and Slayers. But for Sunny McDonald, the true war is being fought over her heart.

Though now officially back in the arms of her vampire boyfriend Magnus, Sunny finds she still can’t forget the gentle mortal Jayden who once saved her life. And when the darkness threatens to steal his humanity, Sunny finds herself with a choice. Stay true to Magnus and the Blood Coven or defy them in a desperate attempt to save Jayden’s soul.

Meanwhile, the Blood Coven is gearing up for its toughest fight yet–going head to head with a splinter group of Slayer Inc who’s regrouping in Tokyo, Japan, still determined to take over the world. In dark blood bars and hidden temples, it’ll be Vampires vs. Slayers in a showdown that could cost Sunny not only her heart…but also her very life.

Don’t leave yet! Mari was kind enough to offer up a copy of Blood Ties to one lucky reader out there. This giveaway IS International!! All you have to do is leave a comment with a way to contact you. This giveaway will end one week from now (8/15).

    Awww. So sweet. I would sooo love to read how that turns out! I don't know which team…. no no no no… This will not become a "team" thingy because too many vampire books have them. Whatever, I think either guy is good. But I would choose Magnus because I don't like dogs.

  15. Oh, it definitely does not sound like it's fun being a hemophiliac. It's so brave of you to take the risk. I'd probably do that too because I can't imagine my life without animals.

    Thanks so much for the giveaway!
