    Sexy lingerie for Cat which would also benefit Bones so that’s a gift that would be for both of them.

    I would give Cat a down comforter. They are soooo comfy and warm and she obviously has a thing for blankets. cover snatcher…I totally do it to 🙂

    Were I Kira I would ask Mencheres to take me to his pyramid in Egypt for a romantic Valentines day get- away! I would also get him some egyptian cotton sheets and a valuer blanket for us to snuggle in while we’re there! LOVE them!! I wish I were her!!! *_*

    Then for Bones I would give him a life size plush, stuffed kitty to cuddle with when Cat is not around! He’s such a sweet heart and he shouldn’t have to spend the night alone, but sometimes duty calls. And you can’t always just call back later! ^_^

    Well if Menecheres wasn’t with his woman, I would buy us one of those vacation packages to the Middle East. So he could visit his homeland.

    This way he could heal from the past and then we could make new memories for the future. Lots of new memories. Remember Thunder mountain. Yeah Boy.

    My Valentine’s Day gift would be to Bones and Cat and it would be a month away from everyone so Bones can get a break from all the mental activity and they can both do as my YOGA as they want :)…..

    I would get cat another tattoo like bones to replace the one her father cut off her.

  7. PatientCharlie

    February 3, 2011

    Helsing because I feel so bad for him being left alone while Cat and Bones are out fighting for their lives and trying not to get kill.

    So I would give Cat my number so she can call me to take care of Helsing for her.

  8. Bethany C.

    February 3, 2011

    I would give Bones a bunch of bones related things just to be cheeky- a set of dominoes, rib dinner, set of Bones volumes on DVD…

  9. DelilahK

    February 3, 2011

    I’d give a gift to Bones. A dozen Dark Pink Roses – which means Friendship and Appreciation in the color of roses. Friendship because I wouldn’t mind having Bones as a friend and appreciation for teaching Cat to accept all parts of herself

  10. Amber@ AwesomeSauce

    February 3, 2011

    I would buy Cat a dozen of roses and some chocolates. Something nice and traditional. I am sure she does not get much traditional things. I think it would be something she could appreciate especially after years of probably seeing other girls get that and her left out!!

    Thanks Again for the chance to win this!!

    I would buy Ian 2 tickets to see Pirates of Penzance, the extra ticket would be for me of course, lol.

  12. Haven

    February 4, 2011

    I would get Ian a mate. Athough he has no trouble finding a shagg, I’d love to see him wrapped around someone’s finger!

  13. klynn

    February 4, 2011

    I would give Denise a picture of Gisela so she could shape-shift into her form. This would give Spade a chance to say goodbye.

  14. skittles

    February 4, 2011

    If it has to be PG…I need to come up with something else 😉

    I would give Cat a three night vacation with Bones somewhere awesome (like Bora Bora) where they do typical couple things like snorkeling, jet skiing, with absolutely no fighting so they can actually relax for the first time in how many years? Six? More, less? And while they will drink some wine and such, their blood will be the drink of choice for them. 🙂

  15. storygirl

    February 4, 2011

    I would give Cat and Bones a week vacation without interruptions. They need to relax and get to enjoy each other without the drama.

  16. missunshine

    February 4, 2011

    I would give Bones his own set of blankets so Cat can’t steal his.

  17. vampmama16416

    February 4, 2011

    I would pick Bones and I would give him anything he wanted.

  18. munchkin

    February 5, 2011

    Cat and Bones need a trip to a private island. Maybe a few undead underlings to wait on them hand and foot, some pamper time with No thoughts to intrude ! And if Helsing can’t go, that kitty needs a trip to a kitty spa!
    Ian needs a really kinky gift that I can’t talk about here, but I would help him put it to use !

    Thanks for the opportunity ladies !

  19. Jeri Kinna

    February 5, 2011

    I would allow Bones to do Chapter 32 again….on me!

  20. Christie

    February 5, 2011

    I’d take Ian out for dinner and dancing. I’m sure we’d have a great time 🙂

  21. black_rose

    February 5, 2011

    I would buy Vlad big fluffy stuffed animal so he would always have something to cuddle with at night. And if he doesn’t like that he can always use me of course. 🙂

  22. buttercupchachi

    February 5, 2011

    Red boxers for Bones. With “bones” written on the backside =D

  23. Juliann

    February 5, 2011

    Hmm. I suppose I’d… watch Dracula movies with Vlad. ;D We could laugh at how much they get wrong and cuddle. And he could help me roast marshmallows for Smores. ;D

  24. Linda

    February 5, 2011

    I’d give Cat and Bones a vacation from all their troubles. 😉

  25. BooksThings

    February 6, 2011

    Well, I hope this is PG enough… but I’d give Ian a new set of nipple rings for his clubbing outings. What? 0:)

  26. dshuey123

    February 6, 2011

    I would give Ian blood red roses to brighten his day.

  27. piewacki

    February 6, 2011

    I am just so in love with Vlad, for Valentines day I would give him a journal that contained all of my thoughts and feelings of the times we have spent together and the love I have for him.

  28. 24catwoman

    February 6, 2011

    Ok, I thought I already did this but I don’t see my post, so here I go again!! LOL. I would give Bones a wedding band that is engraved with the words My heart belongs to you forever! <3

  29. sadiefrog

    February 6, 2011

    I would get Tate a life or a woman. Whatever works.

  30. johanna89

    February 7, 2011

    I never win these… *tear*
    But i guess I would get Ian more priceless artifacts

  31. paint_degas

    February 7, 2011

    I never win these either … BUT
    I would give Kira (with Mencheres, of course) a trip to Egypt, so she could ask him all kinds of questions about the pyramids and his life there, and he could give her a behind-the-scenes tour Giza, etc.

  32. 85hardy

    February 7, 2011

    My gift is for Spade. I will put a once in a lifetime spell on Denise’s blood so Spade can finally taste her without having to worry about hurting her. He will have only Valentine’s Day to drink Denise’s blood without the demon blood affecting him. That way he can enjoy all of her for once without getting out of control.

  33. mamayoda

    February 7, 2011

    I would give Cat & Bones the “human” wedding that everyone is desperate for them to have. They need a little romance and a nice long honeymoon!

  34. martinl

    February 8, 2011

    UMMMM, I would Give MYSELF TO BONES! THEN to Spade!!! HEHE!

  35. otobe5ft2

    February 8, 2011

    I would hook Tate up with an eharmony account.

  36. faudwyn

    February 8, 2011

    I would give Jaun a plane ticket to Florida for Sping Break.

  37. tradermare

    February 8, 2011

    well, another tough call, but I think I’d have to give Gorgon something.. a day away from his duties or something like that. After all, he has taken good care of Mencheres all these years, he deserves a day off.

  38. CarmenR

    February 8, 2011

    I would give Vlad a free meal. I figured he might enjoy my O- blood

  39. NiceGirlsBookBlog

    February 8, 2011

    I would have a shirt made for Bones that reads, “Chapter 32: That was some of my best work!”

  40. aswmiller

    February 8, 2011

    I would give Ian someone who drives him as crazy as he drives everyone else at times.

  41. CatScott

    February 8, 2011

    I’d get Bones a set of custom made silver knives. Nothing says “I Love You” like weapons. 😉

  42. KrisM

    February 8, 2011

    I would give Mencheres some new toys!! 🙂

  43. shellbelle711

    February 8, 2011

    I’m so bad at these things, I can’t even figure out what to buy for my loved ones! LOL So how about I get everyone the same thing my daughter wants. Pillowpets for them all!!! (BTW I just don’t get why those things are so popular, but if my “too cool for school” teenager wants one i’m thinking maybe it will be just the thing for hardened vampire assasins and company. What do I know anyway?!

  44. OlVampLuvr

    February 8, 2011

    What I would like to see Bones and Cat have for Valentine’s Day is a child vampire.

    How difficult could it be for Cat’s Uncle Don to create a clone from Cat and Bones’ DNA? There has to be DNA if bones are left when a vampire dies??

    Vampires created in a lab? Isn’t that what Uncle Don would consider a dream come true? Is Uncle Don sick? What will we find out about him in TSOTG…

    If Bella and Edward can reproduce… MY money is on a baby blood sucker for Cat & Bones.
