My BFF Lia Davis's Debut Novel and a Character Interview!


I have Lia Davis here to interview Emalee Black, her heroine of Ravished Before Sunrise.

Lia: Thanks so much, Carrie Ann, for having Ema and me over today. We are both excited about the release of Ravished Before Sunrise in May.

Before I start my interview with Ema, I want to tell you a little about Ravished Before Sunrise. It is one the latest installments of Decadent Publishing’s multi-author 1Night Stand series.  I am proud and excited to be a part of this series.  If you have never heard about it go check out the blog: http://decadent1nightstand.blogspot.com.

RBS is my first paranormal erotic and I had a lot of fun writing it. I hope the readers enjoy it as much I have writing it.

Here’s the blurb:  


Blurb:
Born with the unusual ability to see what truly lies in the shadows, Emalee Black is stuck between two worlds, the paranormal and the human. Neither one accepts or understands her and she's forced to live a quiet, boring life in hiding. When her best friend mentions 1Night Stand dating service, Ema chooses a role-playing adventure straight out of her romantic fantasies. She's to hunt her very own vampire and have her wicked way him.

Vampire Darian Wyman is surprised when his daughter signs him up for a one-night stand with an exclusive matching agency. At first he's appalled by the idea, but as he reads the details of the date he becomes intrigued. For one night he will get away from the life he has long grown tired of to be hunted and captured by a would-be huntress. But he has plans of his own for his little vixen.

However, when Darian discovers the truth about Ema's inhuman abilities, the date could end before it gets started.


Lia: Hello, Ema. Thanks for pulling herself away from that sexy vamp of yours and agreeing to be interviewed.

Ema: *she blushes* You’re welcome. I’m happy to be here.  

Lia: What made you decide to use Madame Eve’s elite dating service?

Ema: Well…I’m different from others. Anyway, I finally stopped trying to normal and moved to the local coven where my best friend lives after high school. I didn’t date much, because…well humans think I’m weird. *she leans in and whispers* I can see the paranormal. Not just ghost and stuff, but I can see a non-human’s otherworldly aura.

Anyway, Beth, my BFF, suggested 1Night Stand and I figured it couldn’t hurt. Plus the promise to live out a fantasy for one night is very tempting.

Lia:  That does sound exciting. Tell us about your date. What was your first impression of him?

Ema: *she smiles shyly* I was very surprised that Darian was a real vampire. I knew instantly what he was. His dark hair framed his handsome face, ice blue eyes reflected in the moonlight, and those lips….

I’m sorry, what was the question?

Lia: *laughs* It’s okay, we get the picture. What is your favorite part of Darian?

Ema: *the blush returns* His fangs.

Lia: Ah, yes. I can see where they could be a favorite. Boxer or briefs?

Ema:  Oh, that depends on my mood. But most the time I like Darian commando.

Umm, Lia. I really should be going. I…umm…need to talk with Darian.

Lia: *studies Ema for a moment with amusement and a little concern* It was wonderful to get a chance to talk with you.

Ema: You too, Lia. And thank you Carrie Ann for having me over today.

Ema rushes to the door. When she gets there it opens and Darian picks her up and kisses her. She wraps her legs around his waist and they vanish.

Lia looks at Carrie Ann and laughs. “It’s a good thing vamps can teleport.”

Carrie Ann: Those two have amazing chemsitry! I’m glad all of y’all could come by for a visit!

About Lia
Lia Davis is a mother to two young adults and two very special, equally different kitty cats. She’s a wife to her soul mate, who drives her crazy during editing/revisions. She and her family live in Northeast Florida battling hurricanes and very humid summers. But it’s her home and she loves it!

An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very activity imagination. The wheels in her head never stop. She only recently became serious about publishing her work and loves it more than she imagined. Writing is a stress reliever that allows her to go off in her corner of the house and enter into another world she created, leaving the day job where it belongs.

Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.




Excerpt
Emalee’s pulse raced as she drummed her fingers on her desk and searched the website. A giddiness she hadn’t known since senior prom ran through her. The site claimed unlimited possibilities, a chance for adventure. Could they mean it? Because she’d already seen things beyond what humans deemed possible. Hell, her whole existence was unimaginable. 
 
Her life had taken a lonesome turn when a friend she hadn’t seen since high school noted how much younger than the rest of her classmates she looked.  Her long-lasting youth had become a liability. Drawing too much attention to her unusual gift wouldn’t prove wise. In some cases, it could get her killed.  With no alternative, she’d closed the door on her life among humans and moved into the local witch coven, where everyone was different.

“What will you do?” Her best friend since preschool, a coven member in good standing, sat next to her for moral support and encouragement. Ema didn’t need much encouragement. The second Beth had mentioned a one-night stand, she’d been hooked. And Madame Eve’s dating service would save her from dying of boredom, at least for one night.

But could she go through with it? A wicked smile tugged at her lips and her inner voice said, “Hell, yeah.” Human strangers gave her a sense of safety. They knew nothing about her past or her unusual abilities.

“Just one night?”
