Nefri interviewing Santiago
Nefri: Tell me a little about your past
Santiago: I was made a vampire in Spain, but I traveled the world with my sire Gauis and his mate Dara. Our clan was one of the most powerful in the world until we were destroyed by a rival clan. After that terrible night I was taken as a fighter in the Gladiator pits beneath Barcelona. It wasn’t until Styx rescued me that I was able to rebuild my life.
Nefri: Do you have a hobby?
Santiago: Killing people with my big sword.
Nefri: I know you run a demon club. What goes on there?
Santiago: Are you sure you want to know? Okay. I cater to a wide variety of demons so I have hosts and hostesses who are willing to offer whatever services my clients demand. Booze, blood…sex. The specialty of the club is the fighting cages. Anyone can enter so long as I’m convinced their doing it of their own free will and none of the matches are too the death.
Nefri: What do you look for in a woman?
Santiago: Strong, independent, beautiful.
Nefri: What is your favorite meal?
Santiago: Covered in chocolate.
Nefri: Who do you admire the most?
Santiago: Styx. Any idiot willing to become the leader of all vampires desires our admiration…and more importantly, our absolute sympathy. Poor SOB.
Nefri: What would you like to say to all your readers?
Santiago: I would say that I adore each and every one of them!!! It was because of their insistence that I was given my own story. Their continued letters convinced the writer lady that I was worthy of front stage with a female who could not only hold her own with me, but is capable of tying me into torturous knots. I enjoyed every minute of my adventure 😉
When Darkness Comes (Guardians of Eternity #1)
It’s been a hell of a day for Abby Barlow. In just a few hours, she’s survived an explosion, watched her employer die, had a startling dream, and now she finds herself in a seedy Chicago hotel with the sexy, unearthly Dante, a man she both desires and fears. For 341 years, Dante has stood as guardian to The Chalice, a mortal woman chosen to hold back the darkness. A terrible twist of fate has now made Abby that woman. Three hours ago, Dante would have used all his charms to seduce her. Now she is his to protect. And he will do so until his very death. A terrifying plan has been set in motion, one that will plunge Dante and Abby into an epic battle between good and evil – and a desperate race to save their love…
Embrace The Darkness (Guardians of Eternity #2)
IS HE HER MORTAL ENEMY
Lady Shay is the last of her kind. Half human, half Shalott, her blood is a precious aphrodisiac to vampires, who consider it more precious than gold. Though Shalotts are renowned assassins, a curse held over Shay lands her on the slave auction block, where her fate is uncertain-
OR THE MAN WHO WILL RISK IT ALL
Viper, the beguiling chief of a deadly vampire clan, can’t explain his longing to possess the beautiful Shalott who once saved his life, but now he is free to do anything he wants with her. Strangely, while he desires both Shay-s blood and body, he wants her to surrender willingly.
TO SAVE HER LIFE?
A hidden evil has been stalking Shay since she left the slave market with Viper. It is an evil that endangers the very existence of Viper’s kind, and there’s no reason he should court such danger just to protect a Shalott. But the love he feels for Shay is enough to make him willing to go to hell and back if it means spending an eternity with her in his arms.
Darkness Unleashed (Guardians of Eternity #5)
The Guardians of Eternity are vampire warriors without equal, bound by their loyalties and sworn to protect their charges from every danger…except those posed by their own hungry desires…
A scarred recluse, Jagr makes no secret of his disdain for others’ company. But now, as a member of Chicago’s powerful vampire clan, he has certain obligations to fulfill. The latest: track down a missing were pureblood and return her to her sister. The problem: Regan Garrett has no intention of complying. And though Jagr agreed not to harm an inch of this stubborn female’s distractingly tempting body, he’ll gladly kiss her into submission, awakening an urge he hasn’t felt in years. Hell, in centuries…
Regan vowed never to be at the mercy of another man. That goes double for arrogant, steel-muscled vampires with eyes of ice. All Regan wants is revenge against those who imprisoned her. She doesn’t need an ally. She certainly doesn’t need a mate. But soon Regan will have to choose, between a lust for vengeance, and a passion as dark and dangerous as the night…
Fear the Darkness (Guardians of Eternity #9)
The Guardians of Eternity are embroiled in an epic battle for survival. They are as dangerous as they are sensual—and their lustful appetites are legendary…
Her Visions Lead Her To Danger
Beautiful Cassandra is a Were, a prophet both vulnerable and defiant, blessed with visions that portend the fate of the world. A rare and delicate creature, Cassie must be protected at all costs. Enter Caine, a powerful cur turned pureblooded Were whose recent tangles with a demon lord have left him in serious need of redemption. Caine is duty-bound to keep Cassie out of danger—and that means resisting his potent urge to seduce her.
And Only He Can Save Her
As Cassie’s mysterious visions lead them in and out of danger, Caine believes he has found his true mate, the woman with whom he is bound for all eternity. Cassie is both charmed and frightened by Caine’s magnetism, and unsure if he—or her feelings for him—can be trusted. But Cassie can’t afford to doubt Cain now. A deadly enemy bent on destruction is closer than they realize—and only they can keep chaos from ruling the world.
Levet (Guardians of Eternity #9.5)
Just released on March 26, 2013
Gargoyles do not admire difference–and Levet is undeniably different. Of miniscule stature, rather beastly looks, and with fragile, delicate wings, even his family has shunned him, banished him from his beloved Paris. That he is the only gargoyle ever to help defeat the Dark Lord and his hordes of minions makes no impression. But now Levet has come home, determined to be restored to the official Gargoyle Guild. To do so, he must confront the most feared gargoyle in all of Europe. The one who tried to kill him as a child: his own mother. . .
With few allies, Levet’s survival may depend on the aid of two strangers: Valla, a beautiful but damaged nymph, and Elijah, the fiercely possessive, love-struck vampire clan chief to whom she can’t quite surrender–unless Levet has something to do with it. . .
Darkness Avenged (Guardians of Eternity #10)
Available May 28, 2013
THE SEARCH FOR A TRAITOR
As the demon world celebrates the defeat of the Dark Lord, the vampire Santiago’s mood remains bleak. He still yearns for the sensual, raven-haired Nefri, who has inexplicably disappeared. But brooding for Nefri is a luxury that Santiago does not have. His traitorous sire, Gaius, is unleashing a violent scourge upon the mortal world, and Santiago must stop him before it’s too late…
LEADS TO A DANGEROUS SEDUCTION
To her dismay, the all-powerful Oracles have sent Nefri on her own mission to find Gaius, and failure is not an option. Nefri’s search leads her to the vampire’s abandoned lair—and straight into Santiago’s path. It’s clear Santiago intends to seduce her, but then an ancient, banished evil reappears, threatening to thrust the world into a madness it cannot survive…
