So today we want to welcome Jessica Samuels into our guest chair for a brief interview. Welcome, Jessica!
SC: Tell me a little bit about your main character of this book.
JS: The main character is Lilly and she is in a rough spot since she had to leave after she got bullied by Agatha the witch who took over after her mom passed. She had to find her own place and grieve alone till her soulmate found her in a state, and he has to be by her side through it all so she won’t be alone. She even develops an alcohol problem at first since grief is something hard she has to cope with and chooses to use booze. But the realm is in danger so she snaps out of it to save it and help everyone out including the necromancers since she has the power over the dead. She is a special half witch and half vampire that can see spirits and raise the dead. An evil is taking over the realm and she even gets Mina’s attention since she is the leader of the Vampire Witches and looking for Lilly’s help.
SC: Well she certainly seems to have inherited some special attributes. Do you believe in the paranormal and if so, do you have an experience you can share?
JS: Yes, I do. And my most recent one was me seeing my grandpas spirit during the day next to my moms hospital bed. She passed away last year and I actually saw my grandpas spirit standing in front of her. It was interesting and I could tell it was him since he was wearing the same shirt and pants.
SC: Thanks for sharing that with us. What titles are you working on now that you can tell us about?
JS: I’m currently working on AngelWitch book 6 and it has all the characters and allies from books 1-5 it also has Mina and Lilly from Afterlife and Mina’s Vampire mate series. This is a conclusion for my AngelWitch series then I’m going to work on Scarlet books 2 and 3. They will be better than the first and I also have a lot more projects in store as well.
SC: Thanks again for chatting with us. Let's take a look at your novel now.
“Hi, Lilly,” Dad said interrupting me from my thoughts and a tall figured followed close behind him. Oh my God was he cute! His reddish brown hair, hanging loose down his shoulders, made the red in his eyes seem even more intense, I could see it even from this far away.
He was so sexy no one else even compared to him, and the moment he smiled my heart melted.
The tense set of my dad’s wide shoulders told me he was frustrated. He sat down swiped a hand though his slicked back hair and pinned me there with a flash of his blue eyes.
He wore the family uniform we all wear for meetings which is his black shirt and black jeans in combat boots. He sat down across from me and the sexy dude sat next to him.
“Hey Lilly.” He turned to the sexy dude and swiped a hand towards me. “Malachi Drake this is my daughter.”
“Hi,” I swiped my hand on my pants and extend it. Malachi shaked it.
“It is nice to meet the beautiful Lilly Ravenson,” he said.
I loved him already, he was polite.
“He is here to be your bodyguard.” Dad said shocking me.
Dad looked at me, "So some stuff has happened in the coven. And one of the leaders are trying to take over all the Vampire covens. Things are so strained they are going after hybrids and anyone not pure Vampire. We need to keep you safe and the person next to me to do it is Malachi Drake. He is your Protector anyway and the one who is supposed to keep watch. He will be by your side always and with time all yours."
“Wow,” I said.
“He came to me recently since he has been trying to find you to keep you safe, and there is a lot of stuff happening behind the scenes everywhere. Even when you moved away from the coven you were in danger. Especially the moment Agatha and the dumb warlock ghosted you. Agatha bullied you to break you and turn you evil or worse kill you. I’m glad you got away from that. You don’t deserve the shit she put you through. I was talking to other Vampire covens and Witch ones. The evil is spreading so fast that it is overtaking the good ones.”
“I knew there was something going on there I mean someone was stealing from my blood stash and there were tints of black in people’s magic. It was starting to take over mine,” I said.
Dad looked at the menu, “There is something I want you to drink only exclusive to here, and it will help control the alcohol stuff and get rid of the remnants of the black magic.”
He scanned the menu, “Found it. Waitress.”
The waitress zoomed here instantly and looked at my dad. “Do you need something, sir?”
He smiled, “Get my daughter the purifying blood drink. We need it stat.”
She smiled, “Coming right up.” And she went to get it and came back a few minutes later and put down blood drink in a black wine glass. I drank it down and it was healing everything, and the remnants of the black went away.
I smiled, “That helped greatly. I feel way better now and mentally better, too.”I've only heard of Protectors in legends. They are for the VampireWitches. Guardians. And they are also their soulmates too their perfect half who will never leave. And he is really sexy, too. There is definitely something there.
He smiled, “Good, and it means you finally have your Protector by your side. There is something we can do to stop the evil.”
