Shiela Stewart, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about your series.
Seducing the Darkness in the The Darkness series
Genre Paranormal Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
An outcast by her kind, Trinity Ford has learned to live on her own…not an easy thing to do when you’re a vampire.
Trinity was once a fragile girl. Being taken by a powerful vampire prince changed her. Discovering him in the arms of another woman changed destiny. Alone, she’s learned fast how to be tough, how to survive, and how to protect the people in her city from the evil that lurks in the dark. She was managing just fine, until Basil walked back into her life.
Basil Hawthorn has been the reigning prince of vampires since banishing his father to the Realm of Dark Mystics decades earlier. When a prophetic dream makes him realize Trinity’s life is at risk, he decides the only way to save her is to push her away. Doing so is not easy. Trinity is the only woman he has ever loved, ever will love, and he can’t seem to let her go.
When rumors arise of a plan to raise the King and blot out the sun, both Trinity and Basil know they must do everything to stop it. Even if it means working together. Despite the betrayal and the threat, they find themselves drawn to each other. Love has no boundaries, especially in the face of danger. But will they be able to stop the ritual before it’s too late?
Or will the darkness capture them both?
Which book is this in the series?
Seducing the Darkness is the first book.
How many books do you plan for the series?
Originally it was only going to be a single book with everything wrapping up in Seducing the Darkness. After my publisher read it, she asked if I might consider making it a series. She was thinking 3 books. I couldn’t let the characters go, so 8 were created.
How many books are completed?
All 8 books are complete. I was writing one book while editing the other so that all 8 could be released in one year.
What characters are the main stars in your series?
The heroine is Trinity Ford and she’s a vampire as is the hero, Basil Hawthorn. He is also the Prince of vampires. They are the lead in the first six books, then make guest appearances in the last two.There are also 3 other characters that are key in every book.
What is the overall theme in this series?
Trinity isn’t your normal vampire. She wants to keep her city safe by taking out as many bad vampires as she can. But when a ritual is performed to blot out the sun over Jacob’s Cove, she has her hands full. Each book introduces a new character that are love interests for the 3 other main characters. With the sun gone, the vampires are taking over. Trinity, Basil and the other characters try to save what humans haven’t fled the city while trying to bring the sun back. In the midst of all the mayhem, love blooms adding brightness to a very dark situation. Each book takes up where the previous ended.
