I’m happy to be here today to talk to you about my recent release, A Dragon’s Heart, A Demon’s Blood, a paranormal – fantasy, erotic romance.
Most of the time, while I write I listen to music, anything goes, from classical to doom metal to pop. Due to that, most of my stories have their own soundtrack. A Dragon’s Heart, A Demon’s Blood is no exception. What has been different with this tale, however, is the fact that I’ve used an entire CD as inspiration. It was almost like “X” from the band called The 69 Eyes had been written for Adrian and Victoria.
I’m going to give you three examples:
One. “I’m ready” I was writing the beginning of an erotic scene and had just typed the following sentence when this song started playing.
“I’m ready,” she whispered, not sure if she was or not but desiring it nonetheless.
I burst out laughing. Was it a sign? The lyrics fit perfectly for what Victoria was telling Adrian… “I’m ready baby I’m ready, I’m ready to share this dance with you…” Listen to it on Youtube
Two. “I love the darkness in you”. This was the song. In my head it matched the story from top to bottom. The chorus line said something along the lines of “I like the darkness in you, so dirty, so blue…” It was the perfect fit for Adrian even if the song spoke of a she. He’s dark, mysterious and that was something both Victoria and I loved about him. Listen to it on Youtube
Three. “Love Runs Away”
“You don’t know until you found it, love runs away…” This song was so apt because of it’s fast paced guitar riffs and the lyrics.
He ran ahead, still half transformed, searching for signs of Victoria. His demon was looking for the good and the beautiful, the peaceful and the heart wrenching. It was searching for Victoria.
I could go through each and every one of the songs from the album, plus a few more I used in the action and dramatic scenes (for instance pieces from Lord of the Rings or The Dark Knight Rises) but instead I’m going to allow you to discover your own soundtrack. Do you like listening to music while reading?
He is a shadow in the dark, smelling your scent and sensing your fear...
Legendary bounty hunter Adrian Ormonde is no ordinary man. His life is filled with secrets and questions, blood and lust. His only concern for 150 years has been survival and discovering the truth behind his demon-dragon nature.
Until he meets his new assignment: Victoria Green.
Victoria Green has felt eyes watching her every move ever since she can remember. Then, Adrian appears. The eyes vanish but new dangers arise as she falls for the mysterious hunter. Cast into an ancient conflict between dragons and demons, Victoria must trust Adrian’s skill to be enough to protect her from both the outside world and that which grows within her.
Chance brought them together but will love and passion be enough to keep them joined? Or will the other forces at play in the dragon-demon worlds destroy them forever?
Glimpsing at the tent in his jeans, she gasped.
In an instant, he was upon her, his mouth devouring hers and making her legs weak.
“You make me lose control, sweetheart, and I’ll be damned if that hasn’t happened in years.”
His hands slid down her waist over her hip and onto her thigh. Her breath hitched as she searched Adrian’s dark eyes.
“Already, you ask?” He sneered, his calloused fingers rising higher and caressing the junction between her legs. His fingertips skimmed over her labia, finding her wet entrance. His grin became smug. Adrian’s nostrils flared and his eyes flashed red as he dipped two fingers inside her, wringing out a breath she’d not been aware of holding.
“You’re already wet for me, sweetheart.”
Bringing his lips down to her, he stole another short kiss that had her whimpering against him.
She hugged him, bringing him closer and searching for his warm touch again. His eyes scanned her face, his gaze softening.
“You don’t want this, sweetheart.”
“Yes, yes I do,” she replied pushing herself against his hand. His thumb brushed over her clit. Victoria tensed. Her orgasm hung from a cliff, ready to fall.
“I do want it.”
Tangling her fingers in his hair, she pulled him to her mouth, teasing the seams with her tongue. He groaned and she tasted him with longing. Sucking on his tongue, she made love to it as he pleasured her with his fingers. Her body became a mass of over-sensitized sparks as he coordinated his thumb with his seesawing digits. His hand on her waist, held her in place as she humped against him.
“Come on, sweetheart.”
His husky baritone triggered her release. Victoria cried out, her pussy convulsing in short waves, hot liquid dripping onto Adrian’s fingers. Her towel fell to a heap on the floor as she lost control, the cool breeze doing little to soothe her heated skin. She wanted more. She wanted all of him.
Victoria moved to embrace him but he stepped away from her. Drawing his fingers into his mouth, he briefly closed his eyes emitting a barely audible sound of pleasure. When he opened them again, she gasped. Red sparks danced in his green depths.
“No, Victoria. You don’t want this.”
Shaking his head, he turned around and strode out of the room. Victoria stood rooted to the spot, watching in shock as he left the apartment, the main door slamming shut. Tears dampened her vision. Picking up the t-shirt he’d given her, she put it on. More tears trailed down her cheeks as the smell of detergent mingled with his scent. Taking a deep breath, she hastily brushed them away.
“Get a grip, Vicky.”
Wrapping the discarded towel around her wet hair, she strode to the kitchen, her stomach growling. She didn’t think she’d find anything edible in the small kitchen, but luckily Adrian kept a box of cereal and a few cartons of unopened milk. Digging into the meal, she shivered slightly as an unsettling feeling grew in her chest. The watchful eyes were back.
Defined as weird since she was about eight, Elyzabeth honors the title by making up songs about her chores, doodling stars and flowers on any blank sheet of paper and talking to her dog whenever he feigns interest.
Losing the battle to the voices in her head is her favorite pastime after annoying her younger sister with her singing. Writing stories full of passion and emotion where love conquers all is her happy pill and she'll forgo sleep to make her readers live the dream.
