Confessions of a Paranormal Romance Addict
First off, I’d love to thank Crystal for inviting me to her site today. I’m so excited to be here!
In honor of my recent release, Mark of the Sylph (the second book in a paranormal romance series featuring four sexy, half-demon brothers), I thought I’d talk about how I got my intense love for paranormal romance (okay, you might even say addiction).
I’ve been fascinated with the paranormal ever since my childhood days of watching old horror movies (The Mummy, anyone? And I mean the Boris Karloff original). I lived for reruns of The Munsters on television. Tales of vampires, werewolves, and witches thrilled me almost as much as they terrified me. There was something so fun about being able to pretend that these beings actually existed.
That childhood fascination never died off for me. The Lost Boys is still one of my all-time favorite vampire movies, and Labyrinth gets rewatched every couple of years in my household. I absolutely love the 90s version of The Mummy; Brendan Frasier is irresistible as a 1920s treasure-hunter! And who could forget the television series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer? (Sorry you Angel fans, I’m Spike all the way.)
When I discovered romance, a whole new love was born: paranormal creatures as heroes instead of villains. There’s something magical about taking a tortured supernatural hero and giving him a HEA. Maybe it’s the idea that every being needs love—or the thought of everlasting love—that makes this concept so irresistible to me. Whatever it is, my love for paranormal romance (like so many of the genre’s heroes and heroines) will not die.
It was my love of demons as heroes that led me to create my DEMONS OF INFERNUM series. The demons in my world aren’t evil creatures from Hell, but a race of beings from another dimension. And they are super hot!
In Mark of the Sylph, half-demon Taeg is desperate to free his pregnant sister-in-law, who is spellbound to an indestructible book that will create an army of the undead. He is convinced that an ancient sword can destroy the book and the spell forever, but this relic has been hidden for a millennia by a powerful glamour. The clock begins to run out on his search when an old rival goes after the book and Taeg’s family in his quest for revenge.
Librarian Maya Flores has a secret: she’s immune to magic and is well aware of the supernatural beings prowling the streets of New York City. Haunted by a brutal demon attack that took her family, she is on a one-woman mission to destroy the evil demons who did it—and any others who get in her way.
Maya is Taeg’s best hope for uncovering the sword. Unfortunately, she wants nothing more than to kill him. As he fights for her trust and to save his family, she is forced to face the truth that not all demons are evil. And the worst part? She might be falling in love with one, too.
