Welcome to Under the Covers, Jacquelyn! Congrats on the release of THIRST, the first in The Energy Vampires series. I love the entire premise of this series. Where did you get the inspiration for it?
I don’t exactly have an inspiration moment per se. Not in this case. I wish I had some interesting tale to tell, but I just came up with the idea as I was writing.
What is your favorite thing about the Paranormal Romance genre and also vampires in particular?
Vampires are such innately sensual creatures since you have to get in so close to feed and since feeding can be such a sensual intimate act. As for this genre, it’s just like a home to me. I live here. I can’t imagine doing anything else.
How would you describe Rafe Dasilva?
He’s a sophisticate. He’s very much in control of himself. He knows his importance in the world, yet he isn’t arrogant or elitist.
What would you say is the biggest personal obstacle that Detective Renee Holden has to face in this book?
Believing in vampires in the first place. She has to understand that she doesn’t know everything. That there are some mysteries she can’t solve.
Do you have a favorite quote or scene in this book that you can share without being spoilery?
I’d say it’s the first time he feeds from her. He loses control of himself, shocking himself with his own hunger. I love that.
Let’s get to know you a little better… when you are not writing, what can we find you doing?
Sitting my easy chair trying to see and work around the multitude of cats fighting for a place between me and my laptop. When I’m not working I’m usually binge watching something on Netflix. heh
If we were unforgivably rude and peaked in your purse right now, what would we find?
Ants. I keep candy in my purse and it seems to attract ants!
What’s your writing process like? Music or no music? Candles? Special drink? Peace and quiet? Pantser or plotter?
Peace and quiet, no music… Though I used to listen to it now I can’t remember what I’ve written if I have distractions. I’m definitely a pantser. I never know what I’m going to write next.
What are some of your favorite authors?
Joey W. Hill, Kresley Cole, Robin D. Owens

Published by Loveswept
A hidden society of vampires—and the humans they love—are at the heart of this opening novel in a biting, all-original series from the New York Times bestselling author of the Nightwalkers saga.
Rafe DaSilva is an energy vampire, soaking up nourishment from the sun—and, only when necessary, drawing sweet sustenance from humans who are pure in body and spirit. As the right-hand man to his queen, Rafe is a key player at a historic peace summit in New York City, which will unite the vampire nations against a common threat: the sycophants, who feed on humanity and kill indiscriminately. But Rafe’s fascination with a beautiful blond police detective may put everything at risk.
Detective Renee Holden has never worked a homicide quite like this. The victim has twin puncture wounds on his neck, and the only eyewitness swears she saw a vampire. Now’s definitely not the time to get distracted by a seductive stranger. But the suave, darkly austere, exotically handsome Rafe DaSilva is a hard man to deny, and as Renee falls under his spell, she also falls prey to his enemies. Desperate to protect her, Rafe lifts the veil on a shadow realm she can only visit—a world of intoxicating power, terrifying dangers, and forbidden pleasures.
