Paranormal Romance Fiction

Embyr tends her tavern while keeping her dangerous parentage a secret, until she's attacked by a hellhound and saved by one of the most feared men in history.

For the last eight hundred years, Ryder McLennon, the infamous leader of Death's Horsemen, has used his army to hunt the vampire who killed his wife. He's earned a reputation as a murderous madman. But in Embyr, he discovers something that could turn the tide of battle in his favor. Her control over fire can reduce an enemy to ash and her flippant disregard of him heats his blood in ways no one else ever has. She's beautiful, powerful and completely different from her violence-loving brethren.

Embyr finds herself thrust into a war she wants no part of, targeted by a vicious vampire because of her cooperation with Ryder. As she learns to wield her demonic powers without letting the madness of her race overcome her, she also has to fight her attraction to a killer bent on her seduction.

Which is your favorite to write: Heroes or villains?

                When it comes to the question of writing heroes or villains, that’s very hard to answer. Likely because I try to give all of my characters the same treatment. I have a rather extensive character questionnaire that I fill out for each one, whether it’s a main or supporting character. Not all of that information makes it into the book, but it breathes life into them for me.
                But for the sake of answering the question, I would have to go with heroes. While villains are extremely interesting to me, writing a hero is the real challenge and excitement for me. I try to make sure that each of my characters comes from a real place, so it’s always interesting to me why the hero chose the route he or she did.
                I don’t ever want my heroes to be perfect. Perfect heroes are boring heroes, in my opinion. They’re going to have flaws, they’re going to doubt, to make mistakes. What I love discovering is what keeps them on the hero path, how they deal with it when they make the wrong choice or when faced with something that isn’t very heroic.
                It’s easy to be bad. It’s not so easy to be flawed, to be broken, and still be a hero.
