The fablous Louisa Bacio is here today talking about Nick Stake and her The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf series.
The Haunting of a Character By Louisa Bacio
First, thank you so much to Lisa for hosting me today. I’m a real fan of Ms. Fox, and her own work, so that makes today’s visit even more special.
Get out of my head.
Seriously. I don’t need a punk-ass, slang-talking N’awlins’ bad boy whispering sweet lines of dialogue in my mind. I’m crazy enough as it is.
For some reason, Nick Stake doesn’t seem to want to listen to me. Not only is he hauntingly hawt in a total fantasy way, he’s downright persistent.
I first met Nick in book 2 of my erotic paranormal series “The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf” Chains of Silver. Here’s the first glimpse/description:
She liked his strong demeanor and the fact that she still looked up into his eyes. His creamy mocha-toned skin contrasted with his long, blond dreads and pale brown eyes that appeared catlike. He wore a white tank top, and as he turned slightly to the side to check out a disturbance, Silver admired the pointed stake tattooed on his shoulder.
The author/designer Lex Valentine did a great job capturing his essence in the video trailer for Chains of Silver.
But their story wasn’t done yet, or so I later learned. No, Nick continued to want to have his way with me. As if. And, Silver had some ideas of her own. Hence, book 4, The Wolfe Pack. An exhilarating novel to write, The Wolfe Pack advances their story, and especially since Nick is such an “active” participant, the writing went fairly easy.
Sometimes, though, these strong characters act out even more. They tend to not listen to me, as the writer, and the creator of their world. Yes, that means Nick knows better than me what he wants within his life, and for his future. I don’t want to give out any more spoilers. If you haven’t read it yet, start out with book 2 Chains of Silver, which first introduces this bad boy, and stay tuned for more. In February, Ravenous Romance will release the novella Mirabella’s Mardi Gras Ménage and Nick’s made sure he plays a featured role.
The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf 4: The Wolfe Pack
Silver Ashe can’t let go of the desire to find her birth father and the urge to join a pack. Against the wishes of her brother, Trevor, and her vampire-lover, Nick, Silver leaves New Orleans for the woods of Louisiana.
As the guard and a dominant member of the Wolfe Pack, Viktor isn’t too sure of the city-dwelling stranger who comes trespassing. With the lack of female werewolves, Viktor soon sees Silver as a potential mate. Too bad she’s already spoken for by a bloodsucker.
Trapped between worlds, Silver’s faced with choosing between the lover she’s known most of her life, and the budding relationship with Viktor, where her future may lay. It’ll take some sweet talking and a whole lot of loving for Silver to find her place within the pack.
Until next time,
