RAPTURE by Katalyn Sage


I am pleased to have Katalyn Sage here with me today.  Her new book is out now.  
 
 

 

BLURB:

Raine values strength and skill above all else, desiring nothing more than to make her father proud. But when she met a dark, seductive vampire at a tournament centuries ago, she couldn’t deny her attraction to him, nor the feelings he invoked within her. Six centuries later, she’s forced to fight for her love again, and though they're battling against all odds, she won’t give in to those who would keep them apart.

 

After surviving a vicious battle with his twin brother, Ferox remembers nothing of his past and struggles to believe the details of the life he once had. It's only Raine's persistence and the love he sees in her eyes that he finally feels like he's getting some answers. When her life is threatened, Ferox will stop at nothing to reach his Valkyrie.

 

Thank you for joining me on my blog and allowing me to pick your brain. *Smiles* I promise it won’t hurt too badly. Tell us a little bit about the genre you write in?

Thanks for having me. J
I mainly write Paranormal Romance. I currently have four books out, all of which are Paranormal. I also have a few other projects I work on, but they seem to have a little bit of paranormal in them, too.

 

Why did you choose that genre?

I grew up loving everything paranormal. I watched a lot of Sci-Fi with my dad when I was little, and it stuck, I guess. I just love how this genre is limitless, so readers and authors can have as much fun as they’d like.

What got you into writing?

Weird as it is, a song is what did it. Muse’s Exogenesis Part 1 is the song that got my imagination flowing, and the ascension (in Dark Seduction) fully formed in my mind.
Thats not weird, inspiration, at least for me, often comes from music :)

I know I’ve been asked this question quite a bit so now I’m getting to ask *Winks.*  What do you say to those people out there who what to know how to break into writing, get their work published?

Don’t give up. It’s a hard business, even after you’re published. I gave up a few times after writing Dark Seduction, after I received rejection letters (or more commonly, no response at all), but you just can’t give up. No one else knows your characters the way you do, or what stories you (and they) have to tell. So don’t give up, because there are people out there that will love your book(s) as much as you do.

Who are some of your favorite writers?

Hahaha, it’s a really good thing you said “some” otherwise this would probably be the longest interview EVER. ;)
Some of my faves are: J.R. Ward, Kresley Cole, Gena Showalter, Karen Marie Moning, Richelle Mead
Great Authors!

What are some of your favorite books?

Dark Lover (Black Dagger Brotherhood), is the book that really got me into reading. I hadn’t read anything since high school, but that book is so good I couldn’t put the sucker down. The rest of that series is amazing, too, and so are the Immortals After Dark books and Lords of the Underworld.

I’ll have to admit that I rarely read standalones since I always tend to want to know more about the characters, so most of my favorites are in series.
J
I Love Lords of the Underworld series, too.


Tell us a little bit about your new book.

Rapture is the fourth book in the Primordial Guardians series. It’s about Raine and Ferox. What I love most about this book is that readers can not only read about their struggles in the present, but learn how they met over six centuries ago.

Where did you find the inspiration for writing it?

Normally I’d say that a song helped me out, but with this one, the characters just showed me what they wanted me to tell.

I love excerpts. Will you share one?

Raine giggled as Ferox pulled her to him. He’d developed a liking for running his fingers through her hair, his eyes gleaming with that radiant green she’d grown fond of seeing. She’d learned rather quickly what her vampire was thinking whenever his eyes glowed like that. Though her hair wasn’t as long as it had been the last few days. Ferox had nearly lost his mind when she’d sheared most of it off with her sword.

“You shouldn’t be too loud, Caalia,” he whispered. “Anyone could hear you.”

“Nah. We’re too far away now.” She gave him a look that more than indicated what she had on her mind. Him. Against a tree. With her riding him.

He growled and lifted her, and her legs automatically wound around his waist. They’d been like this for days, spending time in the midst of demons, accepting congratulations and even posing for drawings with some of the more excited crowd. The nights, however, had been just for them. She suspected Caleen did the same. She’d noted a familiar twinkle in her sister’s eye—and that of Raider’s—that could be chalked up to the same that gleamed in her vampire’s eyes. She and Ferox had even discovered many advantageous ways of using their mouths to pleasure each other.

Sex was wondrous.

Even now, she let her gaze wander over the male that had taken over her heart, blushing at the primal expression of need and desire. She wasn’t sure she’d ever seen him so hungry. “Ferox? When was the last time you … mmm-hmmm?”

“Just a few days.”

He dipped his head to kiss her, but she pulled back on his hair, meeting him eye for eye. “How many?”

Ferox swallowed and looked away with a shrug. “Over a week.”

“A week? How often do you normally eat?”

“Food, every day. Blood, every couple. Unless you’re mated, then it’s however often she—”

“Ferox! You need to drink! Why wouldn’t you … Why are you starving yourself?”

His arms loosened, and she slid to her feet. He turned his back to her, so she could barely see any of his face behind his long hair. “I can’t make myself feed from another female. I won’t.”

So that was what she felt these last few days? Not just lust for her body, but also lust for her blood. Now it was her turn to swallow. She took a step toward him, her bare feet brushing over the grass, and placed her hand on his arm. “How is it any different than before?”

He faced her, befuddled. “How is it different? You have made it different. From the first time I saw....” He exhaled, his face and body visible relaxing. “From the moment I saw you, I’ve wanted to taste you. Not just here,” he pointed to her lips, “or here,” he brushed his hand over the junction of her thighs, “or anywhere in between. I’ve ached to taste you. All of you.”

Raine could scarcely hear anything over the sound of Ferox’s voice and the beat of her heart. As if his own words had sprung his need to life, he lifted her wrist to his mouth and grazed it with his fangs. “You ... ache?”

“More than you could e’er know, Caalia.”

Her heartbeat had grown so erratic she could feel it everywhere: her neck, her ears, the tips of her fingers, her sex. “Will it hurt?”

“No. It might sting a little, but it’s been known to be … pleasurable. Do you remember when I gave you mine?”

She did, indeed. It had felt so incredible that she considered the experience to be akin to making love. If she could experience that again, all while sharing it with Ferox, then she had no reason not to. “Of course I do,” she answered, gazing down at where his thumb rested over the pulse in her wrist. “Do you normally take from the wrist?”

He shrugged again. “It depends. Some do.”

Raine stepped toward him, peering up at Ferox from under her lashes. “Where do lovers take from?”

He ran the back of his fingers down the column of her neck. “Lovers take from here.”

She turned her head to the side in response, angling her head just so. “Where would you have me, Ferox?” She pointed to her wrist and then to her neck. “Here, or here?” The brush of her own fingertips over her neck caused goose bumps to spread. She couldn’t believe she was being so direct, nor that she was even considering letting Ferox drink from her. Then again, when it came to her vampire, any reservations she’d had previously vanished, and now all she could do was think of all the things she’d enjoy sharing with her vampire. Things Father had taught her to despise.

“What are you doing?” he asked, his expression taking on an almost-horrified look.

“I’m offering my blood to you.” And her heart pounded at the mere thought of it.

His cock twitched and her eyes rooted to his pants for the briefest of seconds. “You … You can’t mean.” He shook his head and gripped her shoulders. “You would do that?”

She straightened, admiring this vulnerability she’d never seen within him before. How could he not know that her own desire for this was as stoked as his? “Of course I would. I’ve shared my body with you. How can I let you go hungry?”

“But we don’t even know that your blood could sate my thirst.”

“How will we know if we don’t try?” She inched her head to the side again. “Take me.”

Ferox bent low, gripping her ass with his hands as he hefted her up. He sat down on a boulder with her in his arms, and set to kissing her neck, sending tendrils of fire-hot desire through her body. Just as she was about to tell him that he’d better get to it before she decided to do some sucking of her own, he struck.

 

If you could choose one book to make it to the Hollywood big screen, yours or another you love, which book would you choose? Who would be casted?

I’d love to see Dark Seduction as a movie. I haven’t seen models or celebrities that match how I picture the characters (except Thrash), so I’m not sure who could play their parts. I’d love to find out how readers picture the Guardians though. J

What’s next? What can your fans expect to see in the future?

More Guardians novels on the way. I’ve had three Guardians fighting over which one I’ll write about next (one is winning at the moment). I’d also love to finish one of my other projects, so hopefully fans can see a lot coming this year.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I look forward to reading your book and wish you all the best with your writing career.  Come back and visit again.

Thanks for having me London!

Mid Week Tease - Don't Stop Watching

This week I've got a little something from Forever & Always, Two Hearts, One Soul Duet: Book Two which is soon to be released.

Enjoy!


Excerpt:

With the phone to his ear, Cayden turned and looked at me, his sapphire gaze roaming from the hair piled in a messy bun atop my head, to my bubble-gum-pink-painted toenails before he smiled. My heart thrummed. Reaching out, he pulled me onto his lap where I willingly went, and picked up a pen from beside my laptop. Then, he crooked his head, holding the handset to the cordless in place against his shoulder to free his other hand and took a hold of mine. Curious, I wondered what he was up to. Cayden turned my hand over, palm side up. Swiped his fingers softly over my palm once. Wrote, I Love U,boldly across it. And then he curled my fingers closed, securing the words tight within the palm of my hand before he moved his hands from mine and took hol…
