Half-werewolf, half-vampire Conall Dearghul is charged with bringing in Sin to face punishment for the plague. And she's no stranger: He's bound to her by blood, and the one sexual encounter they shared has left him hungering for her raw sensuality. Worse, Sin is the underworld's most wanted and Con soon learns he's the only one who can help her . . . and that saving her life might mean sacrificing his own.
I am so excited to have Larissa Ione here today! Larissa is the author of the fantastic paranormal romance Demonica series.
1. Briefly tell us about your latest release, Sin Undone, and how it ties in with the Demonica series.
Sin Undone is the story of Sin, a demon assassin, and Con, a dhampire paramedic who works at the underworld hospital run by Sin's newfound brothers. As a female Seminus demon, she's unique -- all Sems are male. She's been alone for most of her life, and allowing these new brothers into her life isn't easy. Especially because she's inadvertently caused a plague that's killing werewolves -- werewolves who are friends, staff, and family. Con has been charged by his clan to bring her to punishment, but when danger comes at them from all sides, punishment turns into protection, and these two unlikely people find themselves turning to each other even as they push each other away.
Sin Undone ties in with the Demonica series as the fifth book, and it ties up loose ends and completes some of the running subplots and arcs. It also introduces a new plot, which will continue in the spinoff series, the Lords of Deliverance, the first book of which, Eternal Rider, will release next April.
2. In your opinion, what does the future hold for the paranormal romance genre?
Endless possibilities! I see vampires being popular for a long time, and I think we'll see even more variety in the kinds of paranormal beings and settings in the future. I also see a lot of apocalyptic paranormal fiction cropping up, as well as an upsurge in lighter, mood-lifting paranormals...and romances in general.
3. What are your writing quirks?
I really only have one -- I need a big chunk of time in order to write. I'm not one of those people who can sneak in a few sentences here and there. I need to know I have a big block, or it's just not going to work.
4. Do you have any works in progress you can share with us?
I do! :) I'm currently working on finishing up Eternal Rider, which I mentioned above is the first book in the Lords of Deliverance series, about the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse. The hero, Ares, will become War, second Horseman of the Apocalypse, if his Seal breaks, and he's doing his best to prevent that from happening. The heroine, a human named Cara, is the key to his Seal either breaking or staying whole, and the fate of the entire world rests on both their shoulders. I'm super excited about this series!
5. Besides writing, what are some of your other passions in life?
I love animals, reading, watching movies, bowling, and camping. I also love to travel -- I would spend half the year in Europe if I could! :)
Thank you so much for having me! It's been a pleasure!
