The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Promotional Event: Karina Halle's "Experiment in Terror" Series. 

Title: Darkhouse (Experiment in Terror # 1)   

Release date: May 1, 2011

Age Group: Mature NA/Adult
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Horror

Darkhouse is currently FREE!!!! 



With all the vampire, werewolf and faerie books out there, it's easy to become numb to all things supernatural. The antidote? Darkhouse introduces two real and unforgettable characters, Perry Palomino & Dex Foray, amateur ghost hunters who are "attractive, relatable and oddly heroic," "flawed but loveable," "slightly crazy" and just the most endearing pair to ever tackle the paranormal...just don't call them normal.

Darkhouse is a thrilling and sexy new take on concepts like Supernatural and The X-Files, bringing a breath of fresh air to a genre that has been inundated with the dead.

***Darkhouse and the Experiment in Terror series is a horror/romance for mature audiences only. Readers who are easily offended by harsh language should think twice about reading it.***

Mini Review: Kirsty Lander: 

I'm mad at myself for taking SO LONG to read this series. It is soo unlike anything I read - (I don't do Paranormal or the likes.. ever, so this was a big change for me), but I loved every word! 

I'm not going to do a proper review.. everybody knows about this series and loves it, so I'm just behind the times and I'm okay with that. But I will say.. the story flowed perfectly and kept me entertained and engaged the whole way through. I really, really liked Dex and Perry as the main characters and am dying to see what happens with the pair of them.

Oh, and never before have I been SCARED whilst reading a book. Like full on thinking ghosts are gonna get me in the night. CRAZY.

                              "Somehow, by dealing with the dead, I had never felt so alive."

Author Bio:

Karina Halle is the USA Today Best Selling Author of The Artists Trilogy (On Every Street, Sins & Needles, Shooting Scars, and Bold Tricks) published by Hachette, the Experiment in Terror series, and The Devil's series published by Diversion.

The daughter of a Norwegian Viking and a Finnish Moomin, Karina Halle grew up in Vancouver, Canada with trolls and eternal darkness on the brain. This soon turned into a love of all things that go bump in the night and a rather sadistic appreciation for freaking people out. Like many of the flawed characters she writes, Karina never knew where to find herself and has dabbled in acting, make-up artistry, film production, screenwriting, photography, travel writing and music journalism. She eventually found herself in the pages of the very novels she wrote (if only she had looked there to begin with).

Karina holds a screenwriting degree from Vancouver Film School and a Bachelor of Journalism from TRU. Her travel writing, music reviews/interviews and photography have appeared in publications such as Consequence of Sound, Mxdwn and GoNomad Travel Guides. She currently lives on an island on the coast of British Columbia where she's preparing for the zombie apocalypse with her fiance and rescue pup.

Karina is represented by Scott Waxman of the Waxman Leavell Literary Agency

“I just want you to enjoy the pies in life, Perry,” he shot in. 

“That’s all.” 

“I enjoy...pies,” I managed to say. I wasn’t about to charm him with my wit, that’s for sure. 

“Pies are a metaphor,” he said quickly. He exhaled. Then slammed his fist down on the table. The pie plate jumped. I jumped. I’m pretty sure the twins in the other room jumped. 

“All right, enough lollygagging,” he barked. “Let’s have a concrete plan of action for tonight. As much I love to fly by the seat of my pants and shit everywhere, I don’t think we can afford to do that this time. Maybe next time. Sound good?” 

“Oh God, whatever,” I uttered under my breath. 

“That’s the spirit,” he mused and started scribbling furiously on the paper. I soon realized he was drawing a detailed layout of the lighthouse. “Now there were four levels, right?”

I couldn’t remember. “I don’t know. How far did you make it before I showed up?”

“Not to the top.” He finished the sketch and jabbed at the tower with the pen. “We’ll be going up there tonight.”

So much for having enough “events” to keep us in the safer downstairs levels.
