I live in Zeeland, Michigan where half of the year is winter and other, much shorter half, is summer. Yippy summer! It’s a wonderful place to live as long as you own a four wheel drive vehicle and you happen to get a kick out of measuring the snow fall in feet rather than inches. I write paranormal romance because I love to explore and manipulate the limitless possibilities of the genre. To be completely honest, I’m also very fond of taking a totally hot, powerful immortal hero and using a strong, confident, beautiful heroine to turn his world upside down and make him fight like hell for a victory that seems impossible to achieve. Some might call it torture. I call it entertainment and character building. Regardless, it’s great fun!
I have a strong aversion for helpless heroines. Though she’s afraid, a heroine must always be willing to fight like hell. And yes, even if the fighting is against the hero. I’m not sure why, but I tend to really enjoy it when the heroine fights against the hero. Hmm…maybe that deserves a little thought. Nah. Putting a hero through the wringer builds personality, right? How else could anyone empathize with a powerful, wickedly sexy immortal male that possesses the wherewithal to stand against and conquer the most dangerous forces of darkness and seduce the most beautiful women in existence? My thoughts are always wandering from one world to the next. I love to frequently visit my imagination, I’m happy to be me. I appreciate complicated. For me, entertaining those little voices and wickedly hot delusions in the middle of the night are an imperative part of the writing process. How else would I know what comes before the end?
I’m often accused of being a little bit naughtier than nice and slightly rough around the edges. Okay. I lied. Very rough around the edges. Life has been a challenge. But I’m grateful for every challenge I’ve faced. Through them, I’ve learned to focus on the goal rather than the walls surrounding it. Basically, I figure that as long as I enjoy life and do all that I can to encourage and help the people around me enjoy life, it’s all good.

Volatile Breath of Darkness by Candice Stauffer
Breath of Darkness Series Book 5
Nikolas Drake has lived a very long time. He has become bored and hardened in his ten thousand years. And then he found her, his mate. He would watch over her and care for her but only from a distance. He was too old and powerful, not to mention extremely stubborn, to change. And now when maybe he is having a change of heart...it might be too late.
Brianna Larkin has loved Nikolas from the start. When she merges with him, she even regains her sight. She had thought he cared all this time, but now she realizes he may have never really cared at all. It's time to move on with her life. Without him, if only she could keep him out of her mind, literally.
This series continues to build with both the old and new characters. The reader even gets to know Haden and Caylee's unique daughter in this book. The story is written from several points of views, not just the main characters. The two excerpts at the end had me wanting to read those two books right now. Unfortunately they probably aren't written yet. If you enjoy series, you will want to start with the first book and read them in order so you can get to know each of the characters.
