Introducing Snow, superstar of the Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series
It’s wonderful to be back at Under the Covers Book Blog for the next stop in my Vampirerotique Summer Book Tour.
Today, I’m going to be talking about Snow, the oldest of the vampires in the series and by far the most popular.
I’m not sure that Snow requires any introduction. He’s probably the most popular character I have ever written without writing his romance yet (Sorry, Hyperion, he beats even you). I’ve asked readers and reviewers in the past what it is about Snow that has them so gaga over him. The answers generally come back the same. He’s dangerous, crazed, violent, and in need of some anti-psychotics, but he’s driven by his emotions and his desires to protect those he cares about. He needs fixing, and we ladies love to fix our men. There’s a heart of gold buried beneath Snow’s vicious exterior.
For those of you not familiar with Snow, or who would like a little insight into this dangerous beast of a vampire, read on…
Snow is the older brother of Antoine and an aristocrat who is over two thousand years old, incredibly powerful, and also slightly crazed. Bloodlust rules Snow, often turning him dark and unpredictable, and extremely dangerous. When lost to his bloodlust, Snow sees anyone as a target, even his brother, and has a tendency to attack anyone who comes between him and blood. He is also fiercely protective of those he cares about, and will seek to destroy anyone who upsets Antoine or threatens the females at the theatre, particularly the heroines. Snow has his good nights and his bad nights. Considering a good night for Snow is temporary sanity or only one or two incidents of his bloodlust seizing control, a bad night is one for horror movie lovers. Snow fights his bloodlust every step of the way, but has grown weary during the past few centuries and now seeks his death or an end to his suffering. He might just get one of the things he wishes for when a woman walks into his life, but which will it be—salvation or death?
Much like his younger brother, I have enjoyed writing Snow since he first appeared in Covet. Back then, I didn’t know that he was going to become such a superstar of the series. I thought readers may be intrigued by him, but I wasn’t prepared for the requests for his story that flooded my inbox and Facebook and Twitter walls (and still flood it with each new release in the series). It seemed everyone wanted to know more about the mysterious yet dangerous white-haired vampire (or demon as he’s often called by some members of the Vampire Erotic Theatre cast). Snow is an extremely complicated character. He’s a man of contrasts, a severe black and white at either end and very few shades of grey between. It’s not easy to write Snow. As a writer, and someone who cares about him and his mental welfare, I prefer him sane and on the road to recovery and defeating his bloodlust… but I know that I have to do terrible things to him and as I write this, I know there are even more terrible things to come before his story. Writers grow attached to their characters, just as a reader does, probably more intensely in fact. It pains me that I know I must put Snow through more trials, ones that might even break him completely, but he assures me that he can take it. I think a few readers can attest to the fact that I like to put my heroes through hell, and not very lightly either. I’m talking deep into Hell with no food and water, and no hope of salvation. I torture my heroes. I admit it. I’ve done it with several in the past and I’ll do it again with heroes in the future. Right now, I’m torturing Snow. It’s cruel, but necessary. Just know that I don’t like to do it. I want Snow to find his salvation as much as the next girl, but his path isn’t going to be an easy one.
Snow is strong though. He’s been through so much and he’s survived, although with a few dents in his heart, and he keeps moving forwards because of his brother. He has a death wish yet knows taking the easy way out isn’t the answer, no matter how tempting it is. He fights hard in a battle he knows he cannot win, because he has to do something to give Antoine hope for his own future.
When Snow’s story finally comes around, I think I will have to stamp the cover with a tissue warning. I know that delving into Snow’s mind and his heart, and his emotions, is going to wreak havoc on me, but he needs his story told and his shot at salvation, and it’s my duty to bravely take hold of his hand and walk forward with him, marching onwards with hope in my heart that he can achieve a happily forever after of his own. I’m sure I won’t be alone either. I’ll have many readers holding his hand with me and together we’ll see him through the hardest of times.
Snow’s story, Unleash, is due out in 2013.

His determination to succeed in business has left no room in his life for love. Now, a beautiful and deadly succubus has teleported into his dark, decadent world and is in danger of enslaving his heart.
Andreu’s future entails opening an erotic theatre like Vampirerotique, gaining wealth, women and power, not shackling himself to a single female, but he cannot deny the dangerously seductive succubus who stirs his anger and passion, and tempts him like no other—he will have her.
The moment their eyes meet, Varya knows she cannot have the exotic dark vampire who sets her pulse racing. His shadowed aura marks him as forbidden, but the hungers he awakens in her are too intense to resist—she must have a taste.
When an erotically-charged kiss ignites their soul-searing passion and reveals something dangerous about Andreu, will Varya leave forever or will she dare to risk all in pursuit of something she thought was beyond her reach?
