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.

Please list the series titles below, in any order you prefer.

Seducing the Darkness Bk1
Desiring the Darkness Bk 2
Embracing the Darkness Bk 3
Charming the Darkness Bk 4
Tempting the Darkness Bk 5
Penetrating the Darkness Bk 6
Consuming the Darkness A New Beginning Bk 7
Surviving the Darkness A New Beginning Bk 8

What did you like best about writing this series?

The ability to keep the hero and heroines storyline going. Unlike most other romance series books, I give the readers a look at what happens to the couples after their budding romance begins.

What other books (not in this series, have you written?)

To date I have 15 published books with a 16th and 17th on in editing.
Awaken the Demon. Offer the Demon. Conquer the Demon
A Taste of Humanity a 1 Night Stand series.
The Naughty Angel a 1 Night Stand series.
Discovery in Passion. Escape in Passion.

Tena, welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Happy to have you here! Please tell us about Hidden Gypsy Magic.

Hidden Gypsy Magic by Tena Stetler

Genre Paranormal Romance/Mystery/Timetravel

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

The Salem Wildlife Sanctuary is Gwen Taylor’s life work. Her Irish Gypsy heritage provides a hidden talent she uses to help the creatures under her care. But even her magical skills can’t help new rescues in dire need of veterinary care.

The opportunity of signing on as the vet for Gwen’s sanctuary dropped into Brock Scutter’s lap after he expanded his practice to include wildlife. The personal attraction he and Gwen experience is undeniable the more their professional and personal lives collide.

Touring the only “non-haunted” house in Salem they both feel a spark of magic. A trip to his family’s cabin uncovers a heritage he didn’t know existed. If they want a future together, it means facing the consequences of awakening hidden Gypsy magic and a race against the clock to correct past wrongs.

Why did you write this book?

Gwen was introduced in A Witch’s Journey. Brock came to fruition in A Witch’s Holiday Wedding. They insisted on their own story. Then my friend adopted three baby desert tortoises. A story line began in play out in my head, since Gwen is a wildlife rehabilitator and Brock is a veterinarian. They live and work in Salem, Massachusetts. Salem as always intrigued me, so I put a twist on the witch trials and a trip back in time. Then I threw in poachers in present time and a dog and owl rescue. Still the what if’s just kept coming and Hidden Gypsy Magic was born.

What is your favorite genre to read?

I love read all kinds of genres. Favorite if I had to pick one would be paranormal, fantasy, mystery all rolled into one. I like Science Fiction too.

Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?

Dianna Bishop from A Discovery of Witches.

Or Hermione Granger from Harry Potter Series.

What are you working on at the moment?

I’m doing edits on the sixth book in A Demon’s Witch Series. And researching my book for The Wild Rose Press’s Wylder Series (It will be my first attempt at a paranormal historical time travel) I’m really excited about both projects. I can’t wait to get them in the hands of my readers.

What books will we see from you in coming months?

Hidden Gypsy Magic releases today, September 28, 2020. It’s the third book in A Witch’s Journey Series. But is also a standalone.

Chocolate Raspberry Magic will release in April of 2021. It’s part of the One Scoop or Two summer series and the fourth book in A Witch’s Journey Series.

I hope to release the sixth book in A Demon’s Witch Series in 2021 as well as the Wylder book by the end of 2021. Fingers crossed.

All books in my series can be read as standalones.

For the sake of this child, Luc must postpone his own freedom and master his desire for revenge or he will violate an ancient vow. Worse, he’ll put the toddler at risk.

At war with his compassion for the vulnerable child, loyalty to the king, duty to the Guild, and the bright lure of freedom he’s coveted for centuries, Luc seeks the right path. Will he choose liberty and unparalleled success, or restore the Thieves’ Guild to its former glory while overseeing the child’s training?

A hard choice for any man. For an immortal whose inner monster can destroy on sight? Impossible.

A pirate with a monstrous past can never be trusted with an innocent child. Luc must ensure the child is protected, safe, nowhere near danger. Nowhere near him. Even if this little boy has already stolen his heart…
