She meets Devin in the flesh, apparently not a day older. His first human lover, centuries in the past, died horribly because of her devotion to him.

Is It True: Dark Love Rising by Danita Minnis @Danita_Minnis #RLFblog #pnrPlay Is It True with today’s guest Danita Minnis, author of Dark Love Rising, a Paranormal Romance. This is a game in which authors answer yes and no questions. They can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.

First, tell us about your book.

Former MI6 agent Xavier Quinn would say that you’re daft if you think he will stop killing for a living. But that is exactly what is about to happen. Very soon now, Quinn will start killing to stay alive. On the run after taking out the wrong man, Quinn would die a happy man if he could just live long enough to ruin the Parliament member who set him up.

Layla, a 2,000 year old vampire with a moral code, has other plans for the contract killer. When she awakens to the sound of a dark rising, she enlists Quinn to join her on a mission to save humanity from her twin sister Tamara.

But Quinn is just the kind of man that a cold-blooded killer like Tamara needs in her world. A man like Quinn, who never believed in humanity, has only one belief; self-preservation. Being a vampire sounds much better than staying human in the game of kill or be killed. Will he stay alive long enough to find out how Layla’s love can change the equation?

Book heat level (based on movie ratings): PG13

Genre: Paranormal Romance

Now, tell us Yes or No for each answer below. Feel free to explain any (or none) of your answers.

Is it true:

this is your first book?
No. Dark Love Rising is my fourth paranormal romance novel. I’m hooked on the genre!

this book is part of a series?
Not at the moment. But I’m not sure I’m done with Quinn and Layla. I may delve deeper into their relationship and globe-trotting hunt at a later date.

you lost sleep while writing this book?
I did! In the quiet darkness of my bedroom I could see Layla dancing for Queen Cleopatra, her hands weaving intricate patterns in the air.:)

you did research for this book?
Yes. When researching ancient Egypt for Layla’s background, I kept thinking what it would be like to be Queen Cleopatra’s handmaiden. It must have been a very privileged life.

some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Layla is upset with this question. I can see her fangs on display. She loved being human and her life at Cleopatra’s palace in Alexandria. That was before she was forced into the dark life of a vampire.

this book has more than one genre?
All of my books have more than one genre. Horror, probably from all the Twilight Zone and Hitchcock I imbibed growing up. Historical, love it, can’t help myself. Paranormal: Vamps are my latest thing but I can’t do without a few ghosts, who make an appearance in Dark Love Rising.

you speak more than one language?
I speak New Yawk.

you grew up where you live now?
Yes.

you love to read?
I LOVE to read. All the books I’ve read were research. And I didn’t even know I wanted to be an author until ten years ago. But looking back now, I probably should have known.

you are never late?
I could say something very dishonest here but let’s just say if you invite me to a party that starts at 7pm, you better tell me it starts at 5pm.

you love pizza?
Yes. But I don’t love the enhanced pear-shape it tends to give me.

you love sushi?
I could do without it, but I just think of that pear-shape and raw fish sounds pretty good!

you have a pet?
The Khan-Man is a member of my family. Yep, I’m part Husky. Love you Khan-puppy!

Four ways to Spot a Witch by Kryssie Fortune @KryssieFortune #RLFblog #urbanfantasyKryssie Fortune shares four ways to spot a witch.

1. Is the witch female?

Women are easily tempted to sin. Remember Eve and that damn apple? It taunted her from the tree branch while poor, innocent Adam ignored it. Historically, women were seen as morally week. Making a pact with the devil opened up a women’s wildest fantasies. Sometime, when struggling as an uneducated peasant, those fantasies were all she had.

Forget science and facts. Although… Okay, witches and flying go together. Ever wondered why? Most bread in the middle ages was rye bread, but that goes moldy fast. That mold’s interesting. It’s called Ergot. Too much is lethal. Smaller amounts are hallucinogenic and can give the illusion of flying. Most witch suspects were healers or herbalists, and they’d include Ergot in their potions. Rub that potion on your broomstick and straddle it, pre-flight. Middle ages remember. No underwear. Their bare genitals absorbed the potion, making them writhe and contort as it sent orgasm speeding though their body. Afterwards, they would think they’d been flying

2. Does the witch have a pet?

Don’t ever be lonely enough to take in a stray cat or dog, no matter how many purrs or puppy-dog eyes they give you. Witch hunters will claim the Devil sent the pet to her. Some believe the creature can shape shift. Historically witch hunters were warned to be on guard for small snakes, birds, cats, rats, dogs, and griffins. It makes you wonder how many griffins they found.

Pets or familiars didn’t only belong to women. During the English Civil war, Prince Rupert of the Rhine commanded the Cavaliers’ cavalry. By the age of 23, he was an experienced soldier, and everywhere he went, he took his huge white poodle, Boy, with him.

Parliamentarians thought the dog was Prince Rupert’s familiar, or even the Devil in disguise. They even claimed the dog could catch bullets in its mouth. Boy held the rank of Sergeant-major-general. After the cavaliers lost the Battle of Marston Moor, parliamentarians shot Boy, some say with a silver bullet. So, devil’s familiar? Werewolf? Or just a well- loved dog? You decide.

3. Does the witch have a wart?

Women breastfeed babies. Since I can’t find a reference to a female witch catcher, I assume they were male. Men are fascinated with women’s breasts, right? So, if the poor suspect had a third teat somewhere on her body, then that was a secret place for her familiar to suckle. Clearly men are terrified of women, why else would they need a panel of expert females to help find the hidden wart. Or maybe the men didn’t mind looking at the women’s breasts but not at her more private places.

4. Is the witch annoying?

What? Who decides this one? Does she get drunk and dance naked around the village? Some might call that local color. Does she come begging at the manor door? Surely powerful men had a duty to help the poor. Perhaps, if they were powerful, they were also greedy. What better way to not give alms than to out the poor beggar woman as a witch.

Why my interest in witches? Easy, the Tempest, the heroine in my book, Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf is one. Since she’s scared to touch her powers, she’s not a very good one, but then there’s the exploding cauldron to consider. Or the time an injured vampire crash landed on her carpet. Or the way her demon death spell bounced off a cluster of spider demons. All things considered, she’s probably best leaving her magic alone.

Kryssie Fortune’s Claimed by the Vampire, Seduced by the Werewolf

After seven centuries, Elias, a former Spartan turned vampire, finds his eternal bride.

Seth, Elias’s werewolf half-brother, scents his mate.

Vampire and werewolf loathe each other. The only thing they agree on is that Tempest is their mate–and they’re not sharing.

A prophecy will force Tempest, a twenty-first-century witch, to choose between them. As the half-brothers vie to win her heart, they teach her about spanking, the way pain heightens pleasure, and the joy of multiple orgasms.

A vampire can’t survive without his fated bride. A werewolf dies if he loses his mate. Their future rests in Tempest’s hands. Which one will she choose?

Note: While loosely linked to the Scattered Siblings series, this book may be read as a standalone story.

Kryssie Fortune Social Media

Kryssie Fortune writes the sort of hot sexy books she loves to read. If she can sneak a dragon into her paranormal books she will. Her paranormal heroes are muscular werewolves, arrogant Fae, or BDSM loving dragons.

Kryssie likes her contemporary heroes ex-military and dominant. Her heroines are kick ass females who can hold their own against whatever life – or Kryssie – throws at them.

Kryssie’s pet hates are unhappy endings, and a series that end on a cliff hanger.

Her books are all stand-alone even when part of series. Plot always comes before sex, but when her heroines and heroes get together, the sex is explosive and explicit. One review called it downright sensual.
