Interview with Emalee Black

Hello! Lia here and I have Ema from Ravished Before Sunrise with me today for a short interview about that vampire of hers.

Lia: Hi, Ema. How are you?

Ema: I’m great, and you?

Lia: Oh, I can’t complain. How is that vampire of yours?

Ema: *her face brightens and lips curl into a shy smile * As yummy as ever. Darian is the best thing to come into my life. It’s a huge relief not to hide my strange abilities anymore.

Lia:  I could only imagine. Did you ever dream of your one-night turning out the way it did?

Ema: No, never. I thought it would be a passionate rump and wake the next morning with memories of a wonderfully adventurous night. Instead I got a vampire that woke up my sleeping sex demon and challenges both sides of me every day.

Lia: Is Darian a romantic?    

Ema: *a blush creeps into her cheeks* Just when I think he has out done himself, he surprises me. But my favorite time together is our nightly walks. We go on them no matter what the weather is like.  Living in the coven for most of my life, I’ve adopted the witches’ values on nature and the purity of it. Darian makes sure I enjoy the outdoors as much as possible. *she giggles* I’ll just say that there’s something magical about making love under the stars.

Lia: I bet. Thanks you, Emalee, for taking time to talk with me today.

Ema:  It is always a pleasure.

Ravished Before Sunrise Blurb:

Born with the unusual ability to see what truly lies in the shadows, Emalee Black is stuck between two worlds, the paranormal and the human. Neither one accepts or understands her and she's forced to live a quiet, boring life in hiding. When her best friend mentions 1Night Stand dating service, Ema chooses a role-playing adventure straight out of her romantic fantasies. She's to hunt her very own vampire and have her wicked way him.

Vampire Darian Wyman is surprised when his daughter signs him up for a one-night stand with an exclusive matching agency. At first he's appalled by the idea, but as he reads the details of the date he becomes intrigued. For one night he will get away from the life he has long grown tired of to be hunted and captured by a would-be huntress. But he has plans of his own for his little vixen.

However, when Darian discovers the truth about Ema's inhuman abilities, the date could end before it gets started.

Darian logged into his email account. An unusual message flashed in his inbox. Madame Eve with 1Night Stand. Why did that sound familiar?
A vague recollection of his daughter mentioning the dating service two weeks before came to mind and he growled. God, please tell me she didn’t. He skimmed through the email and snatched the phone from the desk.
“Hello, Father.” A sweet and cheerful female voice answered after one ring.
“Where are you?”
“Shopping. Is there a problem?”
“You know anything about why I would receive a message from 1Night Stand?” He tried to stay calm and not overreact. The email could be a mistake. Maybe Kat had nothing to do with it.
“Oh! She found a match so soon? That’s great. You’ll have fun.”
Fun? “Katrina, I didn’t request to be set up on a date. I can’t go meet a complete stranger and….” he scanned the email again. “…and spend the night with her?”
“Oh, Daddy, please. This is my gift to you. Now be the adult and have fun.” Her sweet tone did nothing to soothe his growing annoyance.
“I’m sick of you moping around the mansion. You need a change in your life. Besides, when was the last time you had sex?”

About Lia
Lia Davis is a mother to two young adults and two very special, equally different kitty cats. She’s a wife to her soul mate, who drives her crazy during editing/revisions. She and her family live in Northeast Florida battling hurricanes and very humid summers. But it’s her home and she loves it!

An accounting major, Lia has always been a dreamer with a very active imagination. The wheels in her head never stop. She only recently became serious about publishing her work and loves it more than she imagined. Writing is a stress reliever that allows her to go off in her corner of the house and enter into another world she created, leaving the day job where it belongs.

Her favorite things are spending time with family, traveling, reading, writing, chocolate, coffee, nature and hanging out with her kitties.
