Tuesday Tantalizers is pleased to welcome back Nikki Prince, author of Demon Tempted, for the second part of our interview. Nikki, please tell us about what's new in your writing world.
Demon Tempted is my current release. It is the second book in the Karmic Lust Series that I have
with Evernight Publishing. It’s an interracial paranormal set in modern times.
Tell us about the story behind your book cover.
Evernight Publishing has a fantastic cover art artist who does the covers. We tell her what we want she finds the vision and makes the cover. Perfection.
What steps have you taken to marketing your book?
Facebook, and twitter and do blog stops and hops. I also use word of mouth.
What book on the market is like yours?
I’m not sure, I really try to not compare myself to anyone.
Which movie star would you like to play one of the characters in your book and why?
Franky G would play Clay Quinones because I modeled him after him.
Please expand on the background of Demon Tempted. What led you to write it?
I started reading at the age of 12 and then decided that I wanted to be romance writer.
Do you ever dream about your books?
No not for the most part, but I have started to drift to sleep and thought of stuff that I had to get up and
write down for story ideas.
What gave you the idea to write Demon Tempted?
I wrote the first book and in writing that one ideas for two more stories came up. It’s set in contemporary
times with a paranormal flair.
What inspired your theme?
I just thought about what if Eve was bad and Lilith was the good girl.
Nikki, let's talk to your characters for a minute. Eva, how do you feel being the main character of a book?
Eva: I love it; it’s about time my story was told. People didn’t like me much in the last book.
Who is the most interesting character you’ve met?
Eva: I’d have to say that Clay is interesting because he’s so mysterious.
Why did you choose your current profession?
Eva: It’s wicked and delicious to sell sex toys.
How long did it take you to explain your story to the author?
Eva: Luckily for us she listened to the need to have another book while writing the first
If you could work in any other job, what would it be?
Eva: You know I actually like what I do right now.
Would you change anything that the author wrote about you?
Eva: Hmmm I’ve thought about that, but I think she did just what she had to so that my story was told right.
Who is your favorite relative and why?
Liliana although I made her life hell…I love her dearly. She’s strong and sweet.
How do you overcome obstacles in your way?
Eva: I run straight at the problem and I find a way to take care of it.
What makes you happy?
Eva: Clay makes me happy and hell he makes me lust for him.
What annoys you?
Eva: Again I’d have to say Clay. He knows how to push my buttons something fierce.
Just like a man! Nikki, please give us a tantalizer from Demon Tempted.
Demoted, Eva Jackson has had more than her share of lifetimes to play games with other people's emotions. Now, devoid of her powers, she’s left with the feeling that there’s something more she’s missing.
Temptation was the one thing that always stood in the way.
Clay Quinones, her demon lover of old, is determined that Eva will walk the straight and narrow and learn the error of her ways. When danger looms, is it too late for these two star-crossed lovers to love one another again? Or will Eva's past make it hard for a demon to be redeemed?
Tempting for sure! How about a little taste of the story?
He positioned himself behind her and leaned in close, his face pressed to her ear. “Any time you call my name.” He nipped her earlobe. His words seemed incomplete to her, and she had to ask.
“Any time I call your name what?”
“It will bring me to you. We still have that connection.”
As he spoke, he’d placed his hands on the front buttons of her white shirt.
Slowly he freed each one from its buttonhole until he spread her shirt wide. She was on display for him, and it thrilled her. Strong, capable hands undid the front clasp of her bra, and he pulled the cups away from her breasts.
Clay was right—there was a connection. There always had been, but she was determined to break it. To have him relinquish his hold on her one way or the other was her goal. But first … first she needed his touch.
The wet heat of his tongue made her whimper as he licked across her earlobe and then down to her neck. He grasped her breasts and tugged at the nipples in unison.
“Don’t stop the show, Eva.” His command ran through her head.
“You need to stop telling me what to do, Clay.”
Though she said this, she couldn’t stop even to prove him wrong. Her thighs were already coated in her juices, and more of it was spilling out in copious amounts as she thrust in two fingers and began to finger fuck herself.
“You have a full store out there, Eva. So are you going to be able to stop yourself from coming so hard that they hear every little sound you make?”
She sobbed and bit her lip. His words affected her in a way that she was sure he wanted. The thought of being the center of attention while coming was thrilling to her.
He knew her every little secret.
“I want that, Clay, but not here…” she stuttered out, and swallowing, she tried to sound a bit more convincing, “not here.”
“Then I suggest when you start coming, you press your mouth to my arm and muffle the sound.” He kissed her hard and then nipped her bottom lip. “Now back to making yourself come for me.”
“This wasn’t for you,” she gasped out as the sensations originating from her hand radiated throughout her body. Liar, her body seemed to say.
“That’s my Eva, strong-willed and always ready for a fight even in the midst of a highly erotic situation.” He smacked his fingers against her clit, and she groaned.
“Let me let you in on a little secret. This is always for me.”
She was too far gone to argue that point with him, and his smack just sent her into a hard orgasm. With a moan she pressed her mouth to his arm to try to stifle the sound of her coming. When her body finally stopped shaking, she shuddered and opened her eyes. Clay was still looking down at her with a smirk. She watched in awe as he brought his hand up from her pussy and licked his fingers clean.
“I’ve always adored how you taste, Eva.”
She tried to not let his words bring up the jealousies that she’d been holding on to forever. It was time to let those go, right? But the old adage of habits dying hard and all that jazz seriously did apply. She wanted to ask him why he had always seemed to be following after Lili if he adored and wanted her.
Jealousy. It had to stop, but how?
“Shut up and kiss me, Clay.”
He smirked more and leaned back in, kissing her deeply. He thrust his tongue into her mouth, letting her taste her juices as their tongues dueled. Sometimes it was better to not talk. She knew that now.
