Back in 2009, I was flying home from California where I was brought in as a guest on the Dr. Phil show. During this five-hour flight, I had a gross glass of red wine. Suddenly, an idea was born. I blame it on the gross wine.
Adina, my Jewish vampire. Many of you might remember reading part of her story on my blog, which was released in two parts. The original story can be found here and here. The original story has been reworked a bit and is now the opening chapter of the book!
Well, for the past few years, Adina has been bugging me to finish her story. Yeah, she’s a persistent one, that Adina. The problem was, I didn’t know what to do with her. To me, she was fabulous and I wanted to give her an equally fabulous story to live in.
It happened! Finally. I have no clue how but I’m not going to worry about that.
So, when the kids headed back to school after a veeerrryyyyy long summer break, I started writing. And, this story started pouring out onto the screen. Sure, I did a bit of plotting but I allowed the character, Adina, to lead. Really, she gave me no choice, persistent AND bossy.
Adina is now part of a series called Threads of Fate. Her first book, a novella that is a bit over 100 pages, is called Adina Falling. And guess what? It is available on Amazon but for a limited time. I’m going to be pulling it down for a bit, in about a week. I’m not going into too much detail as to why I’m working it that way but yeah.
So, there is quite a bit of sex in this book and it is not intended for anyone younger than 18. One scene, I blushed and giggled my way through. Thankfully, it didn’t translate into the scene, unless my Beta Readers were humoring me.
I’m currently working on the second thread (or book, as some like to call them) which will be called Adina Rising. I’m hoping for an early December release.
I stink at writing blurbs. They come out sounding like awful book reports that I had to write when I was in school. But, I’m sharing it anyway:
Best-selling erotica author, Adina LaCroix lives a fairly charmed, normal life. Born a Vampire , Adina is forever 21. She is successful, beautiful and wealthy, the envy of women and the object of desire for men. Her days are occupied with more human pursuits such as writing and avoiding unwanted phone calls from her publisher and her mother. With nightfall, however, her Vampire nature takes over and her hunt for blood and sex consume her.
Wanting to keep her conscience clean, she refuses to kill her prey, usually men with dark secrets. Instead, she uses the gift of mind control to implant permanent fears into her victim’s minds, ones so horrific that they will live in fear of death if they continue their evil ways. It was her way of doing the world a favor.
After her divorce from Michael Diamante, one of the most power-hungry and evil vampires in the world, Adina has remained single. Threats of permanent death from Michael have made her hesitant to find a mate. However, rumors have begun circulating around plans the Elders, the governing body of Vampires, have in store for her.
Plagued by a recurring nightmare, Adina begins a quest for answers. The only problem, instead of finding what she has been looking for; Adina is faced with more questions. Questions in the form of two men, Caleb Locke and Xander Stark.
One man holds promises of undying love and passion while the other holds the key to unlocking her secrets, and maybe even her heart.
So, if you enjoy paranormal erotic romances, check out Adina Falling available exclusively for Kindle.
