How's that Christmas shopping going? Too many distractions? Well here's another one. Tenaya Jayne has stopped in for a quick chat.
SC: Tell me a little bit about your main character of this book.
TJ: He’s a total bastard, and I love him for it. Maddox is a half vampire and the son of some of the most famous and powerful people in his world, Regia. Because of his famous family and how hot he turned out, he’s a manwhore by default. But the truth is, under his arrogance is a heart of gold, but the only one to uncover it is the woman who wants nothing to do with him, actually wants him dead, and just so happens to be his destined life mate.
SC: It's always the bad boys, isn't it? We're big on the supernatural here as you've probably gathered. Do you believe in the paranormal and if so, do you have an experience you can share?
TJ: I do believe. There was something living in our house a few years back. For some reason it liked the guest room. It would mess up the room sometimes. I would hear some banging in that room when I was alone in the house, and the perfectly made bed would be all messed up the next time I would go in there. My husband saw it one night, standing by the guest room door and when he flicked the light on, the bulb popped. But the scariest night was when it came into our room and climbed on top of me. It was like a shadow, it had no eyes, but it had a mouth and claws. I’ve used what I saw as inspiration for something I put in one of my books.
SC: That must have been scary. And speaking of scary, what titles are you working on now that you can tell us about?
TJ: I’m working on Feral, the sequel to Fallen. I expect to release it in January, and then the final book, Forsaken in the early summer. After that, I have about six books in the queue in my head. Another trilogy and some single titles.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your story. Let's take a look at your book now.

Tagline: Destiny is a heartless bitch.
Half vampire and wealthy playboy, Maddox lives his life in the public eye and thoroughly enjoys his bad reputation. But what most people believe of him is not who he really is. Life has always been easy for Maddox, but now a dark figure moves through the shadows slaughtering innocent young women, and the evidence points at him as his exes start turning up dead with his name carved into their skin.
Erin hates everything Maddox stands for and when her best friend becomes the most recent in the line of mysterious killings, she has no doubt the rich lothario is responsible. Torn by grief, Erin decides to take matters into her own hands and she will stop at nothing to make Maddox pay.
But when the two rivals finally come head to head, neither is prepared for the sparks that fly or the eternal bond that destiny weaves between their souls. Maddox is desperate to keep Erin by his side and prove to her his innocence. Erin would rather die than submit to being his destined life mate… And her death is just what the killer has in mind.
About the Author:
Reading my bio, huh?
Real life sucks. I bet you feel like that sometimes, maybe even right now. That’s why I write fantasy. I need to escape depression, bitterness, bills, illness…I could go on, but you get it. In the pages of fiction, I can slay the dragons, triumph over the bad guys, be immortal, and never struggle with love handles. For a short time, I can let it all go, and be everything I can’t be in real life. Maybe you’re hurting right now. Maybe you’re in the waiting room of the hospital, or just stuck in traffic. I’ve brought a portal. Come with me…Let’s ditch this crappy popsicle stand and go somewhere great, where we can forget all this, at least for a while.
That’s why I write. I’m not an author, I’m an escape artist.
