What is your favorite scent?
I’m a huge fan of White Musk by Body Shop, but also love Eternity Moment by Calvin Klein.
Who is your favorite fictional character? (can be movies, books, comics, anything)
If I’m not choosing one of my own characters, then it’s definitely Wolverine. I’ve been in love with the big guy since I was reading the comic books when I was a teen.
What is your favorite type of footwear?
Trainers, normally of the walking variety. I’m not a heels gal. I prefer comfortable shoes. I also have some wicked pairs of Doc Martens.
What sparked your passion for the paranormal?
I’ve loved paranormal genre stuff since I was really young, like just starting to read young and in single digits. I have book reports where I call every book boring unless it has vampires, werewolves, witches or monsters in it! I was hooked at an early age and it has stayed with me throughout my life. My passion for it only grew in strength when I read the classics as a teen, devouring Dracula and Frankenstein, and reading H P Lovecraft and Poe. I read classic romances too, like Jane Eyre, North and South, Persuasion and Pride and Prejudice too. I think I began to blend those two very separate genres, falling for vampires and other creatures of the night, imagining worlds where they existed.
How many books are you planning in the Eternal Mates series?
I don’t have a set number as new heroes keep on rocking up in my head and I have to listen to them. As of this moment, I have books to bring me up to lucky number 13 in the series. I’ll be releasing four more books in this series in 2015. Two novels and two novellas. The releases will follow each other and the first is book number 4 in the series, Hunted by a Jaguar, which is a novel and will be coming out in January. Following close on the heels of that release are Craved by an Alpha and then Bitten by a Hellcat, both long novellas (around category novel length). Finally, I’ll be releasing another novel, Taken by a Dragon.
What is your favorite childhood memory?
All of the holidays I had with my family to beautiful places like Cornwall and spots around Wales and also Scotland and Cumbria.
Her Avenging Angel (Her Angel Romance Series Book 7)
Once a proud angel of Heaven, Nevar is now a servant of Hell, bound to a new master—the King of Demons. Consumed by darkness and driven to seek revenge, he set in motion a series of events that awakened the Great Destroyer, a force that will bring about the apocalypse. Now, he is the creature’s master and the fate of our world rests in the hands of an angel with only darkness in his heart.
Lost in the mortal realm without any recollection of how she came to be there, Lysia is only aware that she has survived a great battle. When she stumbles into a demon bar, she finds more than a chance to discover what happened to her—she finds a dark and deadly angel warrior who stirs fire in her veins and awakens soul-searing passion she cannot deny.
With the mounting threat of the Great Destroyer, the forces of Heaven and Hell against him, and a band of dangerous angels intent on capturing Lysia on his heels, can Nevar protect the beautiful woman who is light to his darkness and find the strength to save the world?
Her Avenging Angel is available from Amazon Kindle, Kobo Books, Barnes and Noble Nook, Apple iBooks stores and other retailers. Also available in paperback. Find the links to your preferred retailer at: http://www.felicityheaton.co.uk/her-avenging-angel-romance-book.php
“Pull it up over your chest.” Nevar averted his gaze and rose to his feet.
She wriggled in the corner of his vision and then grumbled something as her arms moved. She waved the two lengths of fabric that were designed to hold the top up.
“What do these do?”
Nevar took them and placed them around her neck, and slowed as her silken hair brushed his skin and the heat of her washed over him, becoming painfully aware of how close she was to him, the bar at her back stopping her from being able to move away.
He breathed in her sweet dewy fragrance and savoured the soft warmth of her skin as his thumbs brushed her neck. He drank in her beauty as she tilted her head back, bringing her eyes up to his, and listened to her breathing as it hitched with each sweep of his skin across hers. She filled all of his senses, stealing his awareness of the world from him and narrowing it down to only her. He stared down into her eyes, mesmerised by the way they widened and overflowed with dark allure, and how her lips parted, tempting him to taste her and making him hunger for her.
He swallowed hard, forgetting what he was meant to be doing, transfixed by her and lost in the moment.
“I told you not to linger.” Asmodeus’s deep voice rumbled through the silent room and shattered the spell she had cast on Nevar. “I should have known you would.”
Nevar drew back and looked over his right shoulder, towards his dark master.
Asmodeus’s golden eyes fell on the female and widened. “What is she?”
Nevar kept asking himself the same thing. She shrank back as Asmodeus advanced, casting her gaze downwards and shifting behind Nevar.
“I do not know what she is.” He moved in front of her, blocking Asmodeus’s path and earning a glare for his chivalry. “But I have to get her out of this place before the boss loses her temper.”
He quickly snagged her wrist and pulled her with him, making a break for it. A hot jolt ran up his arm at the feel of her soft flesh giving beneath his bruising grip and she gasped, as if she had felt it too. He tugged her towards the door.
Asmodeus stepped into his path. “Is she demonic?”
Nevar growled. “I do not know.”
“I have never seen a demon like her.” The dark angel pressed his palm to Nevar’s breastplate, holding him in place, and peered around him. “She is powerful.”
He nodded. He could feel just how powerful she was now that he had his hand on her and it was far beyond the level that he had previously thought.
It sent him back to his initial thoughts about her.
“I do not think she is a demon.”
Asmodeus drew back and studied him. “If not a demon, then what is she?”
“I do not know.” Nevar rubbed his thumb across the inside of her wrist as she emerged from behind him, her free hand clutching the two pieces of silver material to hold her top up and her leathery wings curled around her shoulders in a protective way. He looked down at her. “What are you?”
“Born of Hell.” She looked certain about that, but he still wasn’t sure she was a demon.
There were other beings born of Hell that weren’t demon. Asmodeus was one of them. He was all that was evil in his angelic twin, Apollyon. The Devil had tortured Apollyon until he had lost all good and had then used his blood to create Asmodeus, his own powerful angel of destruction.
Nevar took the two lengths of material from her and tied them behind her neck, afraid he would lose his temper if the top fell down and exposed her to Asmodeus’s golden eyes. He wasn’t strong enough to fight his master right now, but he wouldn’t be able to stop himself.
“Interesting, but we are leaving. Did you eat?” Asmodeus said and he shook his head.
“I was rather preoccupied. The boss of this place told me to make her leave.”
Asmodeus’s black eyebrows met in a hard frown and his gaze drilled into him. “Why you?”
Nevar shrugged but could see his master wouldn’t take it as an answer. He scrubbed his hand over the jagged back of his white hair and flicked a glance at the female. Her hazel eyes flitted between him and Asmodeus, the glimmer of curiosity back in them.
“Apparently, only I can understand the language she is speaking, although I do not know how.”
“I can understand her.” Those words leaving Asmodeus’s lips gave him pause. The angel had understood her when she had informed them she was born of Hell.
He looked back at Asmodeus. “How?”
Asmodeus lifted his huge black wings in a shrug. “I did not question it. I understand many languages. Hers is as old as the Earth.”
“It is still spoken?” Nevar said and the dark-haired male shook his head.
“I have not heard it in millennia.”
Nevar’s gaze drifted back down to her and she smiled, a beautiful one that struck him hard in his chest and knocked the wind from him. “How old are you?”
She looked little more than thirty to his eyes, but then he was beyond two thousand years old and didn’t appear much older than she did.
Her black eyebrows pinched together and she mimicked his master, lifting her slender pale shoulders and shifting the clawed tips of her wings. “I do not know. Ancient. I recall the birth of the King of Demons.”
Asmodeus choked. “Excuse me?”
She beamed at him. “I remember your creation, although I did not witness it.”
Nevar stared at her. “Just how old are you and how can you recall the birth of Asmodeus but not the battle you survived?”
Her hazel eyes turned troubled and she lowered her head, her smile falling away. “I do not know. It hurts when I try to remember it.”
Asmodeus moved closer, studying her in a manner Nevar didn’t like. He wanted the male’s eyes off her.
“Erin told me that when Heaven tampered with Veiron, he experienced great pain when attempting to recall events from his true past,” Asmodeus said and Nevar growled at the casual mention of his ward. His master knew that when he was weak and tired, just the sound of her name was enough to cause him pain, stirring all the terrible things he had done.
Things he hoped she never found out about.
Things he regretted with every drop of his blood.
Asmodeus slid him a warning look and then turned back to the female. “Perhaps Veiron can assist you in regaining your memories, and he may know of your species.”
“No,” Nevar barked, a knee-jerk reaction to the idea of heading to the island where Erin lived. “You said yourself that we have a mission that needs our focus. We shall escort the female away from this place and then continue that mission.”
“You are leaving me?” she snapped and shot between him and Asmodeus. Her power rose so swiftly that Nevar’s knees almost buckled under the sudden pressure of it on his body. Her eyes darkened, blazing violet and her pupils stretched thin in the centres of her irises. “I will not let you leave me again.”
She snarled and claws curled from her fingertips, as black as night, and the tips of her sleek dark hair fluttered as if a breeze played with them.
Asmodeus’s left eyebrow shot up and then he grinned at Nevar, flashing his short fangs. “It would appear you have an admirer.”
His smile dropped from his face when she turned on him.
“What are you?” he said and Nevar knew he had seen her eyes too.
He had never seen eyes like them.
They matched the colour of his, and Asmodeus’s, when he lost his temper, but her pupils were elliptical.
“It is time we found out.” Because Nevar had the dreadful feeling that her origins were more than merely born of Hell. “But we will not ask Veiron. We shall seek the advice of another.”
Their presence wouldn’t go down well, but it was the only choice he had and his only shot at discovering what the female was without taking her to Veiron.
But not because he feared seeing his ward and seeing the pity in her eyes.
The female’s power began to lower, the weight of it lifting from his shoulders. She was dangerous and he wouldn’t take her to Veiron for that reason. He wouldn’t place Erin in danger, or her infant son. He would protect her. Them.
Asmodeus looked over the female’s head to him. “Where are we taking her?”
Nevar stared straight back at him.
“To the half-demon. Taylor.”
