The Phoenix Rising series by Alexandra Christian
Genre Sci-fi Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Librarian Phoebe Addison has lived her entire life within a seventy-five mile radius of her small Louisiana town, but when she receives a strange medallion from her adventurous, off-world sister, reality tilts toward the bizarre. Everything Phoe thought she knew is…well, wrong. Dead wrong. But bone-numbing fear has no place in this brave new world—nor by the side of the dangerous, exquisite man who saves her life.
Following the tragic slaughter of his family, operative Macijah “Cage” St. John understands evil in a way no man ever should. He traded happiness for a magnificent and terrible power, and fate isn’t done with him yet. He wasn’t looking for comfort. He didn’t need tenderness. But today he’ll play hero to a damsel in distress, and his quest will deliver him to the uncanny Martian colony of New London—and his heart to the demure Phoebe Addison. The bookish beauty’s hidden talents and deep abiding love just might save Cage from himself.
Who is your “book boyfriend” (that hottie you read about and drool over)?
I’m particularly fond of Lestat Pointedulac from Anne Rice’s vampire chronicles. He’s arrogant, beautiful, and the perfect alpha hero. He never apologizes for who he is and that’s so seductive to me.
Describe the perfect vacation.
My perfect vacation destination is a wide, sandy beach. Warm water, warm winds, and a cold drink at my side while I watch the waves and get lost in a great book.
When you read for pleasure, what kind of books do you choose?
My preferences differ with the mood I’m in. Right now, I’m working my way through Nora Roberts’s standalone romantic suspense books. I just can’t get enough of them. I’m also a Stephen King horror junkie.
What kinds of things do you read when you’re researching a new book?
Wikipedia is my friend. Right now I’m working on a Victorian paranormal murder mystery involving postmortem photography and corpse medicine. My husband is also a librarian and loves to bring me home lots of books on whatever subjects I throw at him.
If the hero of your latest book called you on the phone, what would be a perfect ringtone for him?
Cage St. John’s ringtone would definitely be the James Bond theme.
