Rhyll Biest interviews Valerie Twombly about her latest release Amazon Heat
and gets the scoop on down and dirty demon sex.
Demons aren’t usually perceived as good boyfriend material, how does your demon differ?
Well first off, he looks nothing like we would think a demon should look. Instead he is tall, dark and delicious and knows how to please a woman. He is not what you would consider an evil entity, though some may dispute that.
What’s the romantic conflict for Damis and Katrina?
Their story starts with Katrina needing Damis’s help to save her father. Being the playboy that Damis is, he bargains sex into the deal. Katrina agrees, after all, she wants to save her father. They start off on the wrong foot from the beginning. Kat finds him sexy and she is unable to resist, but hates that he has control over her. Damis is in it for fun, until he discovers Kat is his mate.
Wild monkey-sex. How much of it can readers expect?
Damis is very needful so there is a lot of sex. Everything from gentle worship of Kat’s body to fast and hard in the middle of the jungle.
What made you choose the Amazon jungle as your setting?
I was trying to come up with a remote place one might look for a mystical stone. The Amazon seemed like the perfect fit. Not only do we think of the jungle as a mysterious place, but it was the perfect setting for hot, steamy sex.
Damis is an alpha male, what do you love about writing alpha heroes?
They are so over the top and do everything in a big way. I love finding that soft spot, they all have one and it’s usually a woman. When they finally realize she is the one and they can’t live without her, that’s when we see who our alpha really is.
Who’s your favourite character in Amazon Heat?
I love them all. However, I would have to say Katrina. She struggles with so many issues throughout this story yet keeps her chin up. In the end, she refuses to back down and fights for what she wants.
Have you got more demon books planned?
I’m currently busy with the second book in my Guardians series, but I do plan another book in the Demon Heat series in the future.
What would you rather become if you had a choice, vampire or demon?
My first love has always been the vampire.
What do you like to read when not writing?
I am a paranormal romance addict. I just wish I had more time to feed my addiction.
When Katrina faces the death of her father, she is left with only one choice. Hire a local demon to help her retrieve a mythical healing stone from deep in the Amazon. However, when the two finally meet, sparks fly. The man is a walking sex god and when he offers to pleasure her in exchange for his services, she finds it hard to refuse.
Damis only intended to have a good time with the beautiful blond who entered his office. Little did he know, the vixen was not only half demon, but his mate to as well. Can he resist the urge to bond with her? Or will his desire be his downfall.
As a child, Valerie would often get into trouble for peeking at her mother’s favorite TV show, Dark Shadows. She can still hear her mother saying “It will give you nightmares.” She was right of course, but that did not stop Valerie from watching. As an adult, her love of the fanged creatures never waned. She would watch any vampire movie she could find.
Being a true romantic, Valerie was thrilled when she discovered the genre of paranormal romance. Her first read was one of Lara Adrian’s, Midnight Breed series and from there she was hooked.
Today, Valerie has decided to take her darker, sensual side and put it to paper. When she is not busy creating a world full of steamy, hot men and strong, seductive women, she juggles her time between a full-time job, hubby and her two German shepherd dogs, in Northern IL.
