Folks, help me welcome Taryn Kincaid! I'm so excited she's here. She's a fellow Decadent Publishing author. Let's get down to business!
Spook Raines is a burnt-out spy who doesn’t know he’s a fire demon with a twin in Sleepy Hollow.
Geneviève Mortimer is a will o' the wisp who hunts demons to ease the pain of her troubled past.
When Madame Eve brings them together for a torrid 1Night Stand, will they be able to come in from the cold at last?
Geneviève Mortimer crept down the quiet hotel hallway, careful to bank her glow…at least for the moment. She’d sensed the presence of a demon on the floor, but something seemed off about the male’s aura. A weird lack of evil, like an impenetrable force field surrounded his consciousness, his psyche. As if he thought he were…human.
Had he been brainwashed? Drugged? Raised by gypsies? By wolves? Wait. No. Scratch that last one. She didn’t get the were vibe at all with this one.No matter, as a will o’the wisp and a POLO, Protector of the Legion of Shadows, tasked with watching over humankind and keeping the unwary safe from visitors from the demon realms to the human plane, she lured the black-souled to their demise. Going all shine-a-light and sparkly until the evil ones fell under her spell and followed her anywhere. She needed to find this guy. Pounce first, beam a little hypnotic wattage, ask questions later. Take him out before he did any harm. To humans, or innocents like her parents.
She sniffed. Getting warmer. Closer to the demon’s room. What would she find behind his door?
Ignoring the do not disturb sign, she jiggled the handle. Locked. But the absence of a key card wouldn’t be a problem for her, not with her brand of talent and the magick lock picks in her pocket. She got the door open in seconds and slinked into the room, masking her radiance, keeping to the shadows.
Holy shit. The scent of male arousal filled the air. Delicious, decadent, sublime. Total man candy, like nothing she’d ever smelled before. Calling to her sweet tooth. Her horny core. So intense, an ache blossomed between her legs. She closed her eyes and inhaled. Whoa. She could orgasm from the erotic scent of the guy alone. Was the dude going through breedspawn? Were all the rumors she’d heard of the full-on crazy, demon male mating phase more than myth? She’d sure never encountered anything as powerfully sexy as this.
Cripes. This sort of thing never happened to her. I’m a demon hunter, damn it. She remained professional always, despite her ditzy, scatterbrained reputation. Did her job. And did it well. She’d fooled even her closest friends, those who didn’t know about her role as a POLOS and didn’t guess the half of it. Those who thought she slut-flitted around the world searching for mischief, adventure and, most of all, pleasure, like some sort of fickle, commitment-shy, well, yeah sure, okay, will o’ the wisp.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS TARYN?
AND NOW FOR THE DEETS...
Alexa: How often to you get lost in a story?
Alexa: What sound or noise do you love?
Taryn: The hiss-sizzle-gurgle of the Keurig coffee maker, indicating there will soon be hot, rich, strong, dark and magic in my mug.
Alexa: What’s your favorite movie of all time?
Taryn: Casablanca. The repartee is amazing. There is not a bad line in the entire movie. So many really memorable scenes it’s hard to pick one. Great movie to watch if you need help with dialogue. No one writes snappy, witty stuff like that anymore. And the ending is awesome.
Alexa: Who’s your favorite villain?Taryn: Raymond “Red’ Reddington from Black List. James Spader is incredible.
Alexa: What is your biggest vice?
Alexa: I'm glad I'm not the only one! What’s your favorite kind of story to get lost in?Taryn: Sexy paranormals. Regencies. Romantic suspense. (Not necessarily in that order.)
Taryn: Hmmm. Breathe a looooooong sigh of relief. Not sure I have a real tradition for finishing a book, but I’ve developed one for release day: I usually take the day off from my mortgage-paying day job. Although, with “early” releases lately, it’s getting harder to figure out what day to take!
Alexa: What does it mean to love someone?Taryn: Love is never having to say you’re sorry. (Ridiculous. But catchy.)
Alexa: What’s your favorite kid joke?Taryn: What’s black and white and read all over? A newspaper. (Used to be a newspaper reporter. And although newspapers are going the way of the do-do, I think it’s still a great message: Read. Read. Read.)
Alexa: What three things are, at this moment, in your heroine’s purse, satchel, reticule,weapons belt or amulet bag (whatever she carries)?
Taryn: Geneviève Mortimer, the heroine of IN FROM THE COLD, is a will-o-the-wisp and a demon hunter. Her faux fae fire can lead the unsuspecting and black-hearted to their doom if they follow. She’s also good with knives. And she glows when the hero, Spook Raines, a burnt-out spy and fire-sex demon who doesn’t know he’s a demon…um, excites her. So…daggers, silk scarves…maybe a fire extinguisher. No, probably not that last one!
Alexa: What is your hero’s “kryptonite” – in other words, what will bring him instantly to his knees?Taryn: When Genny glows.
Alexa: What one thing about your hero drives his heroine crazy? And what one thing about your heroine drives her hero nuts?Taryn: Did I mention she’s a demon hunter and he’s a demon? Also…he’s too big for her bed. ( But she won’t mind redecorating! ) And when he takes it upon himself to avenge her, when she hasn’t asked him to…and can take care of herself. And as for him…that she can disarm him!
Sounds like a great read. Taryn, thanks so much for joining us today!
