The blast of cold breeze felt fantastic and Kira let Tristan lead her away from the school, past the football field to the big tree overhanging the school’s manmade lake. He sat down and leaned against the tree, motioning for her to sit with him, but Kira ignored it and started dancing to the quiet strains of music they could hear coming from the gym.
“Kira, sit down.” He sounded frustrated.
“No! I want to dance.” She started jumping up and down to the beat of the music and almost lost her balance, but Tristan stood up and caught her before she crashed. He slipped his jacket off and Kira pushed her arms through the oversized sleeves. Finally, she calmed down and swayed to the music with him.
Kira sighed, resigned to the fact that the moment felt completely right.
“What?” he asked.
“I’m supposed to be ignoring you, but it’s not working.”
He laughed quietly. “No, that doesn’t seem to be working for either of us.”
“Is that why you punched Carter?”
“I just couldn’t stand the way he was touching you.” Kira smiled to herself.
“Jelly belly,” she said, wishing she could get her mouth to stop word vomiting. She could feel his chin on the top of her head as he pulled her in closer.
“Maybe.” He said, but it sounded more like a begrudging yes.
“Time to sit down,” he told her while helping her down to the spot next to him on the ground and leaning her back against the tree. Kira watched the moon reflect off the water. She looked at the sky and saw it still swerving there, and finally had the realization Tristan must have had in the gym.
“I think my sodas were not just soda,” she concluded as the world continued to spin.
“I think you’re right.” He put his arm around her, letting her head fall to his shoulder. They sat silently in the moonlight, just enjoying one another’s company.
“Are you like one hundred years old?” Kira spat out the first question that came to her mind. She had never even thought of it before, too consumed by his eating habits instead.
Tristan shrugged. “A little older.”
Kira sat up, fascinated, and turned to look him in the eyes. “How old?” She asked, feeling like a little girl.
“About one-hundred and fifty, give or take a year.” Kira’s jaw dropped and her eyelids widened in complete shock.
“Gross!” She clamped her hands over her mouth before she could say anything else. He just laughed it off.
“I look pretty good for someone who’s more than a century old, right?” He grinned. She blushed, thinking of their kiss, and silently agreed.
“So, what do we do now? I’m seventeen and growing, you’re seventeen and stagnant.” Kira finally felt herself coming down from the alcohol Carter had slipped her. The lake still seemed to glow and the stars still danced in the sky, but she was regaining her mental control.
“I don’t know,” he whispered and reached for her hand. Kira intertwined her fingers with his, amazed at his cool touch against her boiling skin. Fire and ice, she thought. That really was what they were, complete opposites. Fire could melt ice and ice could douse a fire, but was there any way for the two to meet in the middle?
What gave you the inspiration to write the Midnight Fire series?
I’ve always been a huge fan of vampire lore (what up, Buffy!)! If there was a book, I read it. A television show, I watched it. A movie, I rented it. But I’ve always thought there is some more epic way they could be killed! Beheading? So old school. Stake through the heart? Too overdone. Sunrise? Talk about passive.
But one day, I was walking on the beach, and suddenly it hit me—the sun! Magical beings who fought vampires by channeling the sun! Once that idea came to fruition, the story just flowed out of me.
Can you describe your Midnight Fire Series in three words?
Thrilling, shocking and, of course, romantic!
Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
So tough! I definitely fell in love with my two leading men, but I have to say my main character Kira has got to be my favorite! She is thrown so many curve balls and her life is turned completely upside down, but she manages to keep it together and persevere. I love a girl who can kick some ass and doesn’t let the boys fight her battles!
Did anything (or anyone) surprise you while writing your series?
Um… everything? I always go into my books with a solid outline, but the story somehow gets away from me and gains a life of its own—and I love that! In particular, the story line for one of my male leads really surprised me 🙂 I can’t say which one or I might give the ending away.
What scenes in the books are you most proud of, and why?
If we are talking about the first book, Ignite, I would have to say a scene in the middle of the book that takes place in the school auditorium—if you’ve read it, you know what I’m talking about! In that moment, I truly believe my series separates from the plethora of paranormal romances out there and blossoms into something entirely its own.
But on the other hand, if we’re talking about Scorch, the final book in the series, it would be the second chapter from the end… you’ll just have to read it to find out why 🙂
Is there a message in your series that you want readers to grasp?
Life is a journey and you have to make your own choices. Don’t let other people decide your fate for you.
been a writer. I grew up duct taping my novels together, started writing
complete manuscripts in high school and studied creative writing at Johns
Hopkins University. Upon graduating, I decided it was finally time to actually
give my dream career a chance. So, of course, I started writing a young adult
paranormal romance series — and no, I’m not jumping on the bandwagon. I’ve
been a true paranormal supporter for my entire life! I blame my obsession
almost completely on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite
television show. And, before you ask: Yes, I own every season… even the post
WB ones! I especially challenge anyone to watch the first three seasons and not
fall in love with Angel, securing a lifelong love of vampires! Other culprits
of my paranormal obsession are some of my favorite authors: JK Rowling, Raymond
Feist, Meg Cabot, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing and Tamora Pierce.
