Logan Murdoch hates complications. All he wants to do is work in his lab and create products to help vampires blend into mortal society. But when his mother begs him to get her painting back from the museum, he discovers a very attractive complication in the form of curator Sydney Worth. She buys his lie that he’s the descendant of the man in the three-hundred-year-old painting, but refuses to give it to him. What’s worse? She’s immune to his mind control.

Sydney couldn’t believe her eyes when the spitting image of the Hot Scot walked into the museum. But her attraction to Logan Murdoch suffers a huge blow when he demands the painting. Losing the piece could threaten her job and she senses Logan is hiding something from her. But this vampire who hates complications and the ambitious curator with trust issues are about to learn the fine art of love.

Raven really doesn’t see what all the fuss is about. All she did was kidnap a mortal and try to sabotage one of the most important developments in the history of the vampire race. For some reason, though, her father, who is the leader of the vampire race, is seriously pissed. He gives her an ultimatum: Spend 200 years in exile or submit to a last ditch crash-course in vampire etiquette.

As the poster boy for upstanding, modern vampires, Callum Murdoch stands for everything the rebellious Raven loathes. He’s also the brother of the man Raven recently targeted. But this very odd couple is about to find out that opposites don’t just attract— they smolder.


Today, we welcome Kate Eden to Musings and Ramblings. Let's all give her a big Geeky welcome!
Thanks so much for having me! I’m thrilled to dish with you about The Murdoch Vampires.
I have some questions for you that are writer specific as well as some fun stuff so that we can really get to know the real you. *grin* Plus we will finish things off with round of Think Fast. Ready to begin?

Writing Specific
1. Tell us something about yourself that's not in your bio.
I read my first romance novel when I was 11. I was staying at my aunt’s house for the summer and she had an extensive list of Regency romances. Johanna Lindsey and Judith McNaught taught me everything I know.
2. What do you like to do when you are not writing?
I’m never really not writing, but I do enjoy cooking. This year I started experimenting with pickling, and I’m always trying out new, weird veggies and fruit I find at the market. Also, I love to read (of course).
3. How did you choose the genres you write in?
I’m not sure I chose them. The story ideas come and I run with them. The beauty of writing in multiple genres is you never get bored. But I do love writing romance because it’s so fun to write sexual tension and watch two characters stumble along the path to falling in love.
4. Is there any particular author or book that has influenced you or your writing?
I really loved Lynsay Sands’ Argenaeu series. They were the first vampire romances I read that were also hilarious. Also Katie MacAlister and MaryJanice Davidson. I love lighter paranormals, and those authors’s books definitely influenced The Murdoch Series. But every book I read influences my writing in some way. That’s what is so cool about being a writer--you’re required to read to get better at it.
5. What has been the toughest criticism given to you as an author? What has been the best compliment?
I prefer not to dwell on the negative stuff. Although, my mother-in-law just told me she loves my books but think they need more sex. :) Challenge accepted.
As for the good, the best is when someone I know says that reading my books is like hanging out with me. It means I’ve really tapped into my authentic voice. It’s also wonderful to hear from readers who are going through a tough time and let me know my stories helped them escape to a happier place for a little while.
Fun Stuff
6. If you could have dinner with anyone, past or present, fictional or real, who would it be and why?
Tom Hardy but only if he’s the dessert.
7. You are going to be stranded on a deserted island and bring 3 luxury items. What would they be?
Luxury items? You mean like a high-powered boat, an expensive GPS system and a satellite phone?
8. Pick two celebrities to be your parents. Who are they and why?
Susan Sarandon and Robin Williams. She’s tough and smart, and he’s hilarious. Don’t think that house would ever get boring.
9. What would we find in your refrigerator right now?
Beer, moldy beets (I don’t always cook), Greek yogurt, and pumpkin-flavored coffee creamer.
10. If someone wrote a biography about you, what do you think the title should be?
Chocolate, Bourbon and Sex: The Kate Eden Story
Think Fast
Summer or Winter? Autumn
Coffee or Tea? Coffee
Cake or Pie? Pie
Car or Truck? Car
Print or Electronic? Both!

Thanks for coming by and spending some time with us. Any final words of wisdom to pass along?
Thanks so much for having me! My final words of wisdom are these: Never trust a man named after a state. Always wear clean underpants. And never leave home without a Kate Eden novel.


Kat is giving away one basic Kindle, a $25 gift card to, and Kate Eden coffee mug. 

The Giveaway is for US/CAN residence only. Must be 18 to enter.

Author Bio:

Kate Eden comes from a long line of mouthy broads who love to read, so it’s probably no surprise she caught the writing bug early. An avid romance fan since her early teens, Kate loves writing–and reading–stories about plucky heroines, sexy heros and the weird and wild journey people take on their way to love. She loves good food, cheap booze, and believes laughter is the cure for just about everything.
