Thanks so much to Selena and Talia for having me here on the Blood Spirit/Sons of Navarus Paranormal Fall Fling! And the celebration doesn't stop until the last day of October. All month the Blood Spirit/Sons of Navarus Paranormal Fall Fling giveaway has weekly prizes, along with grand prizes of gift cards, ebooks, and cool Sons of Navarus swag at the end of the fling. Be sure to keep reading after the post for details on how to enter!
I'm here with both my hero and heroine from my newest book, Blood Spirit, so let's get started! Here's the blurb to give everyone a feel for the story. It's the third book in the Sons of Navarus series and continues the story set up in the first two books.
I am everything you seek. I am vampire.
Blessed with the gift of telepathy, Terek always knows what a woman wants. His gift has afforded him nightly sensual pleasures and exotic treats for centuries, but beneath the surface he yearns for much more.
Ilona can give him what his soul craves, but only if he trusts his heart. One fateful choice made out of desire puts all he cares for in danger. With a civil war and the threat of Archon hunters at every turn, this Son may lose everything if he can't find the balance between heart and mind.
Gabrielle: Welcome, Terek and Ilona! I'm so happy to see you.
Terek: It's good to see you again, Gabrielle.
Ilona: Hi Gabrielle! It feels like ever since Blood Spirit came out, we've been doing these all the time!
Gabrielle: It does feel that way, doesn't it? I'll try to make sure we touch on some new things this time so readers get an even better sense of who you are, okay?
Ilona: Sounds great!
Gabrielle: Okay, first question. As I sit here looking at the two of you, I have to say you look like night and day. Why do you think the differences don't matter between you?
Terek (looks at Ilona and she at him.): You want to answer that?
Ilona: Sure. I'm probably better at this difference thing than he is. You see, the differences are only on the outside. He's dark and very Spanish while I'm light and look more like my mother, an English woman. But inside we're very similar. We want a quiet life together, just like in the fairy tales.
Gabrielle: Do you think being vampires makes the fairy tale different, Terek?
Terek: No. Love is love, no matter who it's between.
Gabrielle: Onto the next question. Readers think Terek is a very sexy man, Ilona. Can you tell us something that is less than perfect about him?
Ilona (looks at Terek and smiles): He knows what I'm going to say here, and not because he can read my mind. (chuckles) He still doesn't have that ability with me. No, the only less than perfect thing I can find about Terek is that he pulls that Alpha male thing with me sometimes when I don't want him to.
Terek: (smiles) She's talking about when she's in danger. Sorry, but that's never going to stop. I can't change who I am.
Ilona: I'm just not used to it, I think. Gabrielle, you know how it is. When was the last time you met an Alpha male outside of Terek and the rest of the Sons?
Gabrielle: (groans) I know what you mean, Ilona. I don't know where Alpha males went, but I never meet them. You're lucky to have snagged one, trust me.
Ilona (kisses Terek on the cheek): I know. I just have to get used to that badass vampire thing he pulls every so often. It could be worse. He could act like his friend, Vasilije. My Lord, I don't know how Sasa deals with him.
Gabrielle: (laughs) See? It's just a matter of perspective. Okay, let's continue. What do you think you'd like to do once the Sons defeat the Archons?
Terek: Stay in bed for a month.
Ilona: Honey, I think she was serious.
Terek: So was I. After fighting those bastards for so long, I'm going to need to spend a month in bed with the woman I love. I'm sticking with my original answer, Gabrielle. Stay in bed for a month.
Gabrielle (smiles): Ilona? Other than being in bed for that month, what do you think you'd like to do?
Ilona: I think it would be nice for us to settle down in a new house somewhere in Spain--somewhere we can be by ourselves and enjoy our time together.
Gabrielle: That sounds great! You two sure do know how to relax. Okay, one last question: What's next for you?
Terek: Until the civil war is over, I'm going to be fighting the Archons with the other Sons.
Ilona: I'll be doing anything and everything I can to help him and the others. It's all pretty new to me, but the other women have been great and taken me in like we've been friends for years.
Gabrielle: Thanks to both of you for sitting down with me tonight. And I have to tell you that your story, Blood Spirit, has become a fan favorite already. Best of luck!
