Character interview and giveaway with Khloe from Death’s Storm
I don’t know about you, but I love a good book with a sexy, dark demon as the hero. Demons are the ultimate bad boys of paranormal romance. And Jagger, the death demon from my latest release, Death’s Storm, is no exception. And who better to share tidbits about the dark guardian than the heroine, Khloe.
Lia: Hi, Khloe. Thanks for coming with me today. Please share something about yourself for those who haven’t met you yet.
Khloe: Hi, Lia! I’m glad to be here. It’s always nice to get away for a little bit. Now something about me. Hmm…I’m a twin and a Divinity. My divine gift is the ability to control the elements. So I’m pure elemental with godly powers. I’m also the owner of Bradenton Desire.
Lia: What was your first thought when you saw Jagger?
Khloe: *a slow smile tugged at her lips* Well, he followed us around for a month before revealing himself. It was highly annoying. I was about to call him out before me, Kalissa, and Lydia were attacked at the shopping mall. *she rolled her eyes* Anyway, when I did see him, it was a shock. I mean I’ve never been near a demon as powerful as he is, or one that turned me on so intensely. It confused me at first.
Lia: Yes, I remember. It kind of threw you off your game.
Khloe: *snorted* Not hardly. I think Jagger was thrown off more than I was.
Lia: I think your right. But you did stagger a bit.
Khloe: *shrugs* Maybe. What did throw me was that bomb Samoan dropped on me about my father and the serum she gave me to make me…Oh, I probably shouldn’t say anything else. I’d give away some spoilers.
Lia: Yeah, let’s get back to your demon.
Khloe: *she grins* He is mine.
Lia: But there was a time you didn’t want to admit that.
Khloe: Things changed.
Lia: How did he win you over?
Khloe: *She lifted a brow* What makes you think he has?
Lia: *I laugh, hearing the playfulness in her tone.* Well, let’s see. You light up when he walks into the room.
Khloe: Who wouldn’t? He’s pure desire in a muscular shell. And he has fangs.
Lia: Yes, I can definitely see the appeal. But he’s also loyal.
Khloe: Yep. And don’t forget deadly. I think that’s the quality that draws me more.
Lia: You always like the bad boys.
Khloe: They’re more fun.
Lia: Wow, look at the time. Thanks so much for the chat. It’s always fun to hang out with you.
Khloe: No problem. You should come on a demon hunt with us. Now, that is fun.
Lia: I’m not sure about that. I’ll leave the demon hunting to you and the other Divinities.
Thanks for having us over.
Title: Death’s Storm, The Divinities, book 2
Author: Lia Davis
Publisher: Fated Desires Publishing
Length: 42,000 words
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Technical genius and demi-goddess--aka Divinity--Khloe Bradenton relies on no one for help, and she definitely doesn’t need comfort from anyone other than her twin. After her parents died by the demons’ hands over two years ago, she has graciously stepped up to her place in the war between demons and witches. When a creature far more dangerous than the ones responsible for killing her parents claims he is her guardian, she is torn between her desires for the dark predator and the painful loss she has endured at the hands of her enemies.
One of the last death demons still in existence, Jagger has pledged his life to the Goddess Hecate. Charged with the guardianship over the Divinities, he is never to approach them, but to aid them from a distance. When the firestorm, Khloe, sacrifices herself to save her twin and best friend and becomes the prey, he has no choice but to reveal himself to her. He is taken by surprise when the need to claim her as his own emerges. A desire he has never felt before could be more dangerous than the demons out to destroy them.
Jagger tossed the Amiddian to the side, stepped away from the overturned van, and froze. Khloe stood on the shoulder of the road about fifteen feet ahead, and watched him. Her pink-streaked blond hair framed her oval face, making her look like a pissed off angel. He took a step forward and felt the presence of another demon. He turned to the new energy to see a horned, blue-skinned demon advancing toward Khloe.
Fuck. Where were they coming from?
Letting out a low growl, Jagger materialized in front of the demon and grabbed him by the front of his shirt. Holding the hell-spawn off the ground, Jagger let his fangs drop. “What do you want with her?”
The demon narrowed his eyes and smirked, but said nothing.
Tightening his grip, Jagger gave the demon one more chance. “You can tell me, or I’ll drain the memories from your useless soul.”
The idiot laughed and vanished.
Fuck! No one should have been able to flash from his hold. He surrounded them with a spell for just that reason. There was only one possibility. Khan had a power source just like Jagger suspected.
Fisting his hands to his side, he whirled around to find Khloe gone. Great. Another complication. Scenting the air, he picked up on her chocolate-rose fragrance and rushed into the forest. Several feet into the trees and brush, he found her.
She wasn’t alone. A Regal—the imperial guards of Khan and the most powerful demons in the Underworld—stood over her, with his hand gripping her arm.
Rage ran in Jagger’s veins, fueling his need to protect her and kill for her.
He soon discovered his Khloe was a fireball. She kicked the Regal in the balls, taking the demon to the ground. Turning on her heels, she took off again, but not before he caught the scent of blood.
A deep growl ripped from his throat, and he thrust his hand toward the male struggling to stand, hitting him with a ball of fire. The demon puffed into a black pile of dust.
No one harmed what belonged to him and lived.
