Fin d’Espoir by Lisabet Sarai
Genre: Bisexual Paranormal Erotic Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Bitter and alone, Etienne de Rémorcy haunts the forest around the ruined plantation of Fin d’Espoir. He has sworn to never again taste human blood. Then a fierce storm and a runaway horse bring a slender, raven-haired beauty to his lair. When she begs him to take her, he cannot resist.
Madeleine and Troy hope that a carefree vacation in tropical Jamaica will reignite their faded passion. On a mountain trail ride, Maddy’s horse bolts, carrying her deep into the jungle. Injured and lost, she is saved by a giant of a man whose mere presence kindles unbearable desire. By the time she understands his dark nature, it is far too late for her to escape.
When Maddy returns, Troy finds her greatly changed : ravenous in bed, restless and disturbed otherwise. The elegant stranger he meets on the beach holds the key to her transformation – and soon has seduced Troy as well.
Tortured by his conscience, Etienne is determined to set the young couple free. But their love may be his last hope for redemption.
Why did you write this book?
Fin d’Espoir was inspired by a trip I took to Jamaica, many years ago. On one tour, we visited a ruined plantation buried deep in the jungle. The brooding atmosphere of the place made a deep impression on me. When I decided I wanted to write a vampire character distinctly different from the typical Caucasian, Dracula-inspired blood drinker, that experience came back to me. The book includes other scenes from that journey as well, including a midnight swim in the lava-rock grottoes of Negril.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I read a wide variety of genres, so it’s quite difficult to pick just one. However, if you force me to do so, I think I’d select science fiction. I’ve been reading scifi since I learned how to make out the words on the page, starting with the Mushroom Planet books, moving on to Heinlein and Bradbury, branching out to Philip K. Dick, Neal Stephenson, Octavia Butler, Sherri Tepper, and more. The explosion of books by indie authors offers a wealth of new and exciting choices in the genre.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
That’s another tough question! I don’t think I can provide an absolute answer, since I’m very influenced by what I’ve read lately. One character who comes to mind is Miss Alexia Tarabotti from Gail Carriger’s Parasol Protectorate series. I tend to like female characters with strong opinions who aren’t afraid to speak their minds.
What are you working on at the moment?
I am currently writing the second to last chapter of a novel called The Pornographer’s Apprentice, first book in a steam punk erotica series, The Toymakers Guild. I write a good deal of out-and-out erotica, as well as erotic romance. This book is a lot of fun – in fact it features a smart, strong heroine who isn’t afraid to speak her mind! But I probably won’t be featuring it on Romance Lives Forever.
What books will we see from you in coming months?
I’d like to bring out a sequel to my MM science fiction romance The H-Gene, which was released a few months ago. It’s the first book in a series called After the Plague. I also plan a mature romance for the holidays, possibly reprising the 60+-aged characters from Gray Christmas.
