Q: Do you have a favorite quote or line from The Necromancer’s Seduction? If so, please share.
A: The following mini excerpt is the first time Ruby, my necromancer, runs into Ewan, the demon, in the book. I thought I’d share this because of our mutual admiration for demon romance and because it’s definitely one of my favorite parts of the book.
When we reached the top of the stairs, my heart ceased to beat . . . for a split second anyway. Shit. In front of me loomed the six plus feet of chiseled muscle and coiled sexuality I’d hoped to elude.
Ewan March embodied all the hot, luscious things that made me wish I wore a bodice he could rip off. I fought the compulsion, made easier because I don’t own a bodice. Each time I run into him, I want to wrap myself in the velvet swath he drapes over the air. Every. Time. Instead, I spend the next few days in a hectic blaze trying to eject his dark, wavy hair and thick shoulders from my mind.
Q: I love stories containing romance with a demon. What kind of demon is Ewan (if you can say without spoiling anything) and what made you decide to write a demon romance into your story?
A: I came to love demons after reading Stacia Kane’s Demon Inside series featuring Megan and Greyson. My original hero was going to be a werewolf, but as I explored my necromancer mythology, it evolved to demons. And in my world, they’re not really demons, but beings from another realm, but became known as demons in the human realm, which I can’t reveal. Ewan is a warrior. Where most of the demons are stoic, he is very passionate and knows what he wants (Ruby).
Q: Is The Necromancer’s Seduction more paranormal romance or more urban fantasy? If there are any sex scenes, how would you rate the heat level?
A: Urban Fantasy. Ruby and Ewan have many struggles, and although the romance is a very important journey for them, the focus is on the mythology of necromancers and Ruby’s growth. The sex is pretty hot, but not erotica.
Q: Convince readers to buy The Necromancer’s Seduction in 25 words or less.
A: A necromancer unleashes her power and reignites a legacy that threatens the entire supernatural community as well as her own soul. We have zombies, demon creatures, sexy demon warriors, all in the great city of San Francisco.
People should pick it up to get to know the cast of characters. I enjoy exploring the grey moral areas of my characters. They all have to make horrible choices based their allegiances to their own supernatural race and past events. And my heroine, Ruby, raises and controls the dead. It’s not a glamorous power, like casting spells or giving chase in stilettos. It’s rather gruesome, in fact, and I was very into exploring how she dealt with such a power, how she transcends the darkness or will she?
Q: Name three things you can’t live without.A: Coffee, movies, family (not necessarily in that order
