Character Interview/Giveaway: Vampirerotique Summer Book Tour - Felicity Heaton

Today, please help me welcome Felicity Heaton to the blog with her interview with Kristina!  Thank you, Felicity, for taking the time to do this fantastic interview, and for the awesome giveaway! 

Interview with a werewolf– Kristina from Crave, book two in the Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series

It’s wonderful to be back at Fictional Candy for the next stop in my Vampirerotique Summer Book Tour.

Today, I’m going to be interviewing Kristina and talking about her relationship with Callum, one of the owners of Vampirerotique, and her story Crave.

FH: I have Kristina here with me today to talk about her book, Crave. Firstly, can you tell us a little about yourself?

KRISTINA: Callum said that you’ve already interviewed him, so I’m guessing he already mentioned that I have a tendency to go all furry and bite? I’m a werewolf, and while I’m from Britain and still live in London, I’m no longer affiliated with any pack. I’ve left my pack behind me and I have no intention of returning, especially now that I’m married to a vampire. I don’t think that would go down well at all!

FH: Yes, Callum mentioned you were a werewolf during my interview with him. Several times, in fact. You met him in your story, Crave. How did you meet and how did you feel about him initially?

KRISTINA: He stalked me. Seriously. I was on the run from my pack and the total dick of an alpha. He wanted me to lay back and bear his cubs, and I wasn’t having any of that, so I made a break for it. I’d managed to reach Paris and was feeling a little safer, and a little lonely. Werewolves run in packs because we’re social creatures and a lone wolf is a lonely wolf. I hated my alpha, but I missed being with my friends and other wolves. So, I went to a few clubs where I had found out werewolves went and mingled with humans, amongst other species. I think he might have been watching me for longer than I realised, but as soon as I recognised Callum was always there and his eyes were always on me… well… every instinct I had, both as a woman and a werewolf, lit up. Of course, they conflicted with each other, and I found myself subconsciously flirting with guys in front of him while at the same time trying to give him the slip. It was very strange. As a werewolf, it’s difficult to ignore my baser instinct to protect myself and defend against vampires.

FH: But that’s just because you’ve been raised by werewolves who have told you that loving a vampire is forbidden, just as Callum was raised by vampires who said the same thing about werewolves. It must have made your relationship difficult for you at first.

KRISTINA: Extremely. Like I said, I was torn between wanting to tease him and bring him to his knees, and wanting to keep running. I think the keep running instinct was because I had originally thought he was sent by my alpha to capture me… and then I realised he was a vampire, and I really wasn’t sure whether to feel relieved or even more frightened. In the end, I couldn’t take his eyes on me any longer. It was torture to have him watching me and feel the heat of his gaze, its intensity, and not do anything about it. I made him buy me a drink and I swear to god he was shocked to see me standing there, as though he had been subtle about his staring. Hello, werewolf? I could sense him tracking me… but hell, I didn’t need to… he wasn’t exactly subtle with his staring.

FH: *laughs* I don’t think Callum can do subtle. What happened after that?

KRISTINA: I made the mistake of letting him kiss me. God, it was leg-melting, thigh-quivering good and I knew I was done for. I tried to make a break for it, my self-preservation instinct telling me to get out while I still could and was still in one piece, heart intact. I knew that if I let it go beyond a single mind-blowing kiss that I wouldn’t be able to let him go. Callum just doesn’t know when to give up though, and part of me is glad of that fact because he saved me from a little bit of trouble with some bonehead werewolves.

FH: It’s not the only time that Callum has saved your fur. How has life been since the events that happened and brought you together?

KRISTINA: A little difficult. I know that things have been hard for Callum, not just because he fell in love with me… a werewolf… and he’s a vampire. I’ve put a lot of pressure on him and I think he feels torn between the theatre and his friends, and me at times. I don’t want to pull him in two different directions. I want him to be happy, but I’m not ready to live in that theatre yet. I know it’s the safest place for me and Callum just wants to protect me… and I know that I will move in there. I’ve forgiven the vampires for what happened to me and I know it wasn’t their fault. I’m just still a little nervous about setting up home in a place full of vampires… although I’ve heard through Callum that there’s a new addition to the theatre and she’s a riot.

FH: She most certainly is! I think you would like her. Together with Sera, Antoine’s woman, and her, you would be in good company and I’m sure you’d drive the boys crazy. Your story, Crave, is a book in a series. Can you tell us a little about the series and can we expect to see more of you in other stories in this series?

KRISTINA: I’m hopeful that I’ll make an appearance again. I think I probably have one more refusal to move into the theatre in me before Callum makes me move whether I like it or not. I know I will move in there because it would lessen the pressure on him and remove a lot of the stress he’s feeling right now.

FH: I can imagine he is stressed. Whenever he pops up in the books, he’s either on the verge of tearing his hair out or he’s cracking jokes.

KRISTINA: Watch out for the cracking jokes. I’ve learned it’s what he does when he’s really stressed out and normally he’s one laugh away from insanity.

FH: Oh… then I think you need to de-stress the vampire before he explodes. *smiles* To round things off, can you describe yourself in one word?

KRISTINA: Insane. *laughs* I must be. I fell in love with and married a vampire!

FH: *laughs with her* True, but I think that just makes you a believer in true love, rather than crazy. We’ll leave crazy to Callum. Thank you for meeting with me today and chatting.

KRISTINA: Thank you for interviewing me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go de-stress that vampire of mine just as you said, and maybe we’ll talk about my moving into the theatre.

FH: I think he’ll like that. I look forward to seeing you around there, causing trouble with the girls!

Felicity Heaton
His mind has been set on his work for the past one hundred years. Now a forbidden beauty has stolen his attention and is threatening to steal his heart too.

Callum has come to the city of romance on business, not pleasure, but when he sets eyes on a gorgeous werewolf in a nightclub, he can’t ignore the dark carnal craving she ignites in him. His work for Vampirerotique, the erotic theatre he runs with three other vampires, can wait. The only thing that matters now is satisfying his sinful hunger for a woman who most vampires would consider an enemy.

Kristina is on the run from her pack. Her alpha is intent on forcing her to bear his child and she’s not about to live through the same nightmare as her mother had. When a tall, dark and sexy vampire catches her eye, she can’t believe the ferocity of the desire he unleashes in her or the fact that she enjoys the feel of his eyes on her and his silent pursuit of her in the clubs each night.

When Kristina finally gets a taste of Callum in a forbidden kiss, will she be strong enough to resist the allure of the vampire and his offer to share his bed for a week of unbridled, wild sex, or will she surrender to her own craving for the safety and passion she finds in his embrace?
