Kayden Claremont Interview #2

Thanks for hosting me on your blog today.

Tell us a little about your new book.

Hell’s Bounty is the first book in my Heaven and Hell series. It is a paranormal erotic novella, and it’s published by The Wild Rose Press.

Marcus Dionysius, a Nephilim working for Heaven, has one mission – to prevent Hell’s beauty from stealing souls meant for the higher plane. But he soon realizes he’s met his sexual match in Raven Hart, a succubus bounty hunter on a hunt.

Can you share with us “The call” story?

I was in New Hampshire looking at wedding venues for my daughter’s wedding. I was dog tired after flying in and we had to get up really early to start our quest. Before I joined everyone for breakfast I checked my emails. I was scanning one and read “please sign and return to us.” I really didn’t understand what was going on so reread the email. It took a few minutes for the fact The Wild Rose Press had just offered me a contract just to sink in. I joined the others for breakfast and my daughter asked me what was wrong. I whispered I had a contact but decided to keep it quiet for the rest of the day.
That night we were celebrating the venue and y book contact at the same time.

What is your favorite time of the day for writing?

I write when the characters talk to me. A regularly get up in the middle of the night and write to 6 am. Some mornings I hand my husband his coffee as I’m going back to bed. Then I get up again between nine and ten and get ready for work and leave. I don’t recommend this but it works for me.

What is your favorite food to cook or eat?

Sweets. I’m gluten free so I have to be very careful with bread, cookies, cakes and pies but I love them. I’m always on the hunt for great gluten free recipes. However, I can still eat chocolate so live is good.

List of few of your favorite things?

Music, jazz and blues are my favorite. Chocolate anything, sitting by water it relaxes me., and great stories I can get lost in.

             Raven looked over at him. “Marcus, this is the coroner, Doctor Hill. Doc, this is my new partner, Detective Marcus Dionysius.”
Marcus extended his hand to the doctor, but he just paced back and forth, ignoring the proffered handshake. “Oh, my dear, you shouldn’t see this.”
“Doc, I’m a detective. There isn’t much I haven’t seen.” Raven’s no-nonsense tone had no effect on the doctor. “No, dear, not this time.” He took her by the elbow and led her a few feet away from the body. Shaking his head, he continued, “This time it’s too personal. You don’t need to see this.” He pointed at the body on the ground. “It’s Stephen, my dear.”
Marcus watched shock flash across her face for a moment before she got control again. She wasn’t expecting to see her late partner. She hadn’t done this, but that didn’t clear her of the other attacks.
The captain was sleazy. Everyone in heaven and hell knew it. And everyone thought that because Raven worked so closely with him, she was part of his plan. Marcus hoped the sexy succubus wasn’t connected with hell’s mess. He moved closer to the body.
Doctor Hill glanced at him and stopped talking.
Clearing his throat, Marcus said softly to Raven, “I’ll handle this if you’re not up to it. The captain can assign another detective to work the case with me.”
Raven looked up at him, anger flaring in her eyes as she answered, “What do you think I am? Some fragile female who can’t do her job?”
