Top 10 TV Shows ~guest post by Abbey MacMunn, author of Touched, a new paranormal/fantasy romance

Guest author, Abbey MacMunn, is joining me today, talking about her favorite fantasy TV shows. Be sure to check out her new paranormal/fantasy romance release, Touched.

*~*~*

Hello, my name is Abbey MacMunn and I write paranormal/fantasy romance. Today I’d like to talk about some of my favourite fantasy T.V shows.
I grew up in the 70s watching shows such as Dr. Who, Star Trek and Wonder Woman, and the first movie my dad took me to see was Star Wars, so it’s no surprise that my love for fantasy/sci fi followed into adulthood.
So here’s my Top Ten Fantasy T.V Shows.

·         1. THE ORIGINALS - love, love, love this show!
·         2. VAMPIRE DIARIES – okay, this one might not be my second choice, but since The Originals is a spin-off, I wanted to give it some credit.
·         3. CHARMED – haven’t seen this for a while but I still remember the Power of Three: Prue, Piper and Phoebe, then later on, Paige.
·         4. SUPERNATURAL – which Winchester brother is your favourite?
·         5. PENNY DREADFUL – dark and disturbing – not for the fainthearted!
·         6. ARROW – enough said
·         7. BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER - classic
·         8. DR. WHO – favourite doctors, David Tennant and Matt Smith
·         9. STAR TREK. THE NEXT GENERATION – make it so
·         10. BEAUTY AND THE BEAST

There are many, many more like Grimm, True Blood, Lost, Once upon a Time etc. I want to say Game of Thrones, but I’m in the minority of people who have not seen much of GoT. Shock! Where have I been?! 

Unfortunately, I missed the first series and I absolutely cannot watch something unless it’s from the very beginning, otherwise it’s like starting to read a book from page 50. Thank goodness for box sets because I’ve just started to watch it and I’m already hooked. I just need about a month with nothing to do!

Thanks for reading. I hope you saw a few of your favourites there too, but if there’s an awesome show you think deserves a mention, and I’m sure there is, please feel free to post in the comments below.

Thanks for reading!

Excerpt:

He might have just saved her life, but pinned to the freezing concrete by some wannabe hero was not her idea of fun. Cami Wilson shoved the unyielding wall of his chest, fighting not only him but the rising panic. ‘Get the hell off me!’
The guy remained on top of her, using his large frame to protect her from the chunks of smouldering metal hurtling to the ground around her. Icy air met with fiery heat and smoke infused the atmosphere like the fifth of November, but there were no sparkling fireworks to admire, only the flaming inferno, which seconds earlier had been her car.
Maybe if she hadn’t been so intrigued by the antique brooch she held in her hand or distracted by the weird, periodic buzzing emitting from it, she might have seen him coming at her in full, rugby tackle mode.
He lifted a little, easing the crushing pressure on her ribs, but remained inches from her face. Glacier-blue eyes met hers, captivating and intense. ‘Are you hurt?’
His gravelly voice did something tingly to her insides. She went to speak, but no words came. Nothing came to mind. Not the explosion. Not the contents of her shopping trolley strewn all over Morrisons’ car park. Not the fact she could have been killed. Somehow, none of it registered.
She gawped back at him like a doe-eyed teenager, taking in the angular sweep of a jawline peppered with dark stubble, and well-defined lips that parted invitingly as he drew in his breath.
His gaze lingered on her mouth in a breath-taking moment right out of one of those soppy rom-coms she liked to watch.
Forget burning cars and curious brooches… hel-lo, future husband.
Somewhere to her left, an engine revved loudly, and he turned his head towards the sound. Overlong, tousled hair tickled her cheek, and she got a faint whiff of citrus shampoo.
Hmm, lovely…
A second later, his attention returned to her. His grave expression burned with an urgency that brought her down from the clouds. ‘Dammit! I asked if you were hurt.’
‘No, I…’
In a move so swift it wasn’t humanly possible, he leapt to his feet and hauled her up beside him. The brooch slipped from her gloved hand and landed on the ground.
The man cursed under his breath and stooped to retrieve it. With an exasperated look, he waved it in front of her as though she were a baby dropping her dummy for the hundredth time. ‘You need to take more care of this. Don’t you know how important it is?’
Sudden indignation flared. Cami snatched the jewel from his grasp and slipped it back into her coat pocket. Okay, the guy rocked the sexy, just-rolled-out-of-bed look, but his patronising attitude set her teeth on edge. What right did he have to tell her what to do? And what on Earth did he know about a weird, vibrating brooch she’d been given by her adoptive mother, the only clue she had to her past?
