Introducing Callum and Kristina, hero and heroine of Crave

It’s wonderful to be back at Bookin It Reviews for the next stop in my Vampirerotique Summer Book Tour.

Today, I’m going to be introducing you all to Callum and Kristina, and talking about what it was like to write them and their romance, Crave.

Callum is an elite British vampire who attended school with Javier and has been friends with him ever since. He has an eye for detail and works in Vampirerotique as a talent scout and is in charge of the performers. Working closely with the acts that happen at the theatre has led him to embrace his passionate nature but hasn’t changed him and he’s still driven by his emotions, valuing love over lust. At one time, he was responsible for sourcing the humans for the shows too, but has since contracted out that job. Callum loves the theatre and his position, and he’s dedicated to both, but that dedication is put to the test when he sets eyes on a sassy werewolf and she ignites a forbidden carnal hunger in him that he cannot ignore.

Kristina is a werewolf and she’s on the run from her pack because her alpha has decided he wants her to bear his child, and he isn’t giving her any choice in the matter. She’s a strong, independent woman who will bow to no one, but she has deep-rooted fears too, and it’s those that keep her from connecting to anyone on a more intimate level. A courageous werewolf, she has spunk and determination, and likes to toy with males. When she finds herself in the city of romance and being silently pursued in the nightclubs, Kristina thinks that it’s her alpha’s doing, but her admirer turns out to be a tall, dark and dead sexy vampire, and rather than despise the feel of his eyes on her, she craves it with a ferocity that astounds her. Always willing to go against convention, Kristina turns the tables on Callum and brings the seductive vampire to his knees. 

I really loved writing Crave, and Callum and Kristina. Callum is a vampire who is driven by his emotions, despite how much he tries not to be. He’s intense and when he falls in love, he falls hard, and he pulls out all the stops. He’s also a vampire who knows the rules and knows it’s wrong that a sexy female werewolf has caught his eye, but he can’t stop himself from silently stalking her in the nightclubs. Of course, watching her interact with other males drives him crazy with jealousy, but what else is he meant to do? It’s a look but don’t touch situation, and he knows that. Callum’s intensity was a pleasure to write and I loved learning about him as his romance progressed from physical to emotional. It doesn’t take him long to become invested in what he has with Kristina and for a change it’s the hero pursuing the heroine and trying to convince her to open up and take a chance on him. I liked this role reversal. So many romances feature a heroine gunning for a reluctant hero. It was a nice change of pace to have a hero who knew what he wanted, didn’t care if it was illegal, and would do anything to make the heroine wake up and smell the roses he was presenting to her... or in Callum’s case, the yummy food.

Kristina has scars and she doesn’t show them to anyone. She’s a strong heroine but she’s weak too, and it’s her weaknesses that makes her want to run from Callum, even when she knows that he could be everything she’s ever wanted. It was hard writing Kristina because she had such emotional baggage and she was skittish, afraid that Callum would end up hurting her. She was intent on protecting her heart and getting her to open up to her hero took a lot of convincing on my part. I loved writing her though and exploring her pain and her fears with her, and eventually getting her to tell her sexy dark-haired vampire all about them too. If any of the heroines of the Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series deserved a happily forever after, it was Kristina. I think a lot of female readers will be able to empathise with Kristina and they’ll be rooting for her just as I was.

If you like intense, unforgettable characters and forbidden love that will challenge convention in every possible way, then I think you’ll really enjoy their story, Crave, and the Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series. Every book is packed with emotion, tension, drama and passion, guaranteed to satisfy even your darkest desires.

Felicity Heaton

His mind has been set on his work for the past one hundred years. Now a forbidden beauty has stolen his attention and is threatening to steal his heart too.

Callum has come to the city of romance on business, not pleasure, but when he sets eyes on a gorgeous werewolf in a nightclub, he can’t ignore the dark carnal craving she ignites in him. His work for Vampirerotique, the erotic theatre he runs with three other vampires, can wait. The only thing that matters now is satisfying his sinful hunger for a woman who most vampires would consider an enemy.

Kristina is on the run from her pack. Her alpha is intent on forcing her to bear his child and she’s not about to live through the same nightmare as her mother had. When a tall, dark and sexy vampire catches her eye, she can’t believe the ferocity of the desire he unleashes in her or the fact that she enjoys the feel of his eyes on her and his silent pursuit of her in the clubs each night.

When Kristina finally gets a taste of Callum in a forbidden kiss, will she be strong enough to resist the allure of the vampire and his offer to share his bed for a week of unbridled, wild sex, or will she surrender to her own craving for the safety and passion she finds in his embrace?
