    Sexy vampire, Luca Macquarie doesn’t do love; especially not with humans. Yet, ever since he rescued Samantha Irving, he can’t deny the enigmatic attraction he’s developed for the alluring mortal woman. Concerned for her safety, he’s determined to bring Samantha back to her coven. His mission is to go find the novice witch and bring her home, nothing more, nothing less; falling for her is not supposed to be part of the plan.
    Samantha doesn’t want to be a witch, yet that’s exactly what she is. After failing to elicit her magic, she escapes to the mountains in an attempt to resume a semblance of her previous human life. When an arsonist torches her cabin, Samantha’s worst fears are realized. Aware that her life is on the line, she reluctantly agrees to return to New Orleans with Luca.
    In the Big Easy, Samantha and Luca embark on a spellbinding journey, searching for a mystical amulet that promises to release her obligation from an ancient, lethal vampire who’s been threatening her life. With cryptic clues and clandestine allies, will Luca and Samantha destroy the dangerous amulet before others acquire it, setting forth a chain of catastrophic consequences? And will Luca give into his erotic desire for the witch who magically captures heart?

    For those readers who may not know you, please tell them a few tidbits about you, Luca?
    First let me say that I am honored to be interviewed by your site. As most of my acquaintances and friends know, I generally don’t interact with humans, except to feed and have relations, if you understand my meaning. In truth, I prefer supernaturals, since they are not as weak and vulnerable as mortals tend to be….very breakable, indeed.

    I collect antiquities, to the point that Samantha joked that my home looked like a museum. Long ago, when I was turned vampire, Kade suggested a take up a hobby. And antiques are plentiful in New Orleans.

    When did you become a vampire?
    Ah, it is a long story as I was turned during the War of 1812 by my maker, Kade Issacson. I’ve worked for him ever since protecting him and his assets.

    What is your favorite memory?
    My most treasured memories involve my most intimate moments with my love, Samantha. Let’s just say that I enjoyed our first walk on the kinky side; she’s quite responsive. The details of our encounter are much too steamy for this interview, I’m afraid. You’ll have to read the book if you want to know everything.

    Are you planning any special dates for Samantha?
    I haven’t had the opportunity to take Samantha on a proper date given the unfortunate battles we’ve been forced to fight over the past month. I will tell you as long as you promise not to tell her.

    You see, I learned that my girl has a proclivity for skinny dipping in mountain lakes. So I plan to take her to Jamaica to a private au natural beach where we shall go on holiday at our beach villa, complete with a large king size bed overlooking azure waters. I cannot wait to see the look on her face when we arrive. Of course, I will take her there on the private jet, and blindfold her on the ride from the airport so that it is a complete surprise. But shhh….it’s a secret.

    What are your favorite weapons?
    I’m an expert in hand-to-hand combat, and of course, as vampire, my fangs will rip the throat out of my best opponent. But I have been known to carry a stake with me as well.

    What/who would you never want to come across again?
    It is difficult to say in that evil lies in all species, be it human, vampire, witch or other supernaturals. We must remain diligently on guard given that Kade has great power and there are those who would like to see both of us dead. Being a security expert, I defy anyone to try it.

    How do you see your future?
    As vampire, my future is filled with promise. As a lover, my nights are filled with the erotic embrace of my woman.

    Do you have to tell anything else noteworthy?
    As irritable as I was with Sydney, Kade’s lovely detective and now fiancée, I must admit that certain humans are growing on me. Samantha….well, she is quite delectable…a right saucy witch, indeed. You must read our story to understand the full extent of our relationship…it is quite an erotic tale.

    Thanks so much for having me. It was lovely of you to invite me to Butterfly-o-Meter Books!
