Hosting AMANDA J GREENE: Caressed by Moonlight


Today I'm hosting Amanda J. Greene and her vampire romance Caressed by Moonlight. Take it away, Amanda!

***

Today I have the privilege of interviewing Dorian and Victoria Vlakhos, the main characters in Caressed by Moonlight (Rulers of Darkness #1) Dorian and Victoria have agreed to meet with me to answer some questions about their love story before heading off to celebrate their anniversary.

Amanda: Thank you so very much for meeting with me. I know you are very busy and are getting read to celebrate your one hundred and ninety-seventh anniversary. Congratulations.

Victoria: (Glancing over to her husband, her lips turning with a smile) Thank you.

Dorian: (Takes his wife’s hand)

Amanda: Do you have any plans?

Dorian: We are hoping to get away for a few days.

Amanda: Where do you plan on going?

Dorian: A friend of mine owns a hotel and casino in Las Vegas Nevada.

Amanda: Gabriel Erhard, that is his territory, correct?

Dorian: Yes. He moved from London to the States in the early 1800s. He has made name for himself out there. Las Vegas and the State of Nevada is his strong hold, but is only one of many of his holdings.

Victoria: He sailed not long after Dorian and I met.

Amanda: (nods and writes down some notes) So, Dorian, can you explain to me why you left your home and your clan to go to London in 1814?

Dorian: (His jaw clenching, he shifts in his seat) At that time, the Red Order witches were slaughtering my people. I headed to London hoping they would follow me. I wanted to draw them away from my lands and decided the best way was to use myself as bait. They followed. While I was in London, and not chasing after Victoria, I was hunting the hunters. (He gave a light laugh.)

Amanda: Why did you pick London?

Dorian: I wanted to go to a city that was far from my clan, a place off the European continent. Then, like now, London was one of the most populated cities. Having a powerful, hungry vampire amongst so many mortals…well, you can see why the hunters would come after me.

Amanda: (I could sense Dorian did not want to discuss the hunters.) Can you tell me about the night you met?

Dorian: (His features relaxed) I will never forget that night.

Victoria: We met under the moonlight, both looking to escape a stuffy ball and all the gossips.

Dorian: Victoria wore an emerald green dress, the same color as her eyes.

Victoria: (Giggles) Dorian found me quit irresistible.

Dorian: (Laughs) I was not the one who could not remember my name.

Victoria: (playfully hits him on the arm) It did not help that you were trying to seduce me, you rake.

Amanda: Was it love at first site?

Victoria: More like lust at first site?

Dorian: You felt that too? And all this time, you claimed otherwise.

Victoria: (Rolling her eyes) For me, I believe it was love at first site. I tried so hard to fight my feelings. You must understand. Dorian was not…a suitable man for me at the time. I needed to find a husband, not a bedmate.

Amanda: And a vampire…

Victoria: I learned that bit of information after were married. It was quite the shock.

Dorian: Some men stop putting the toilet seat down or start burping and scratching themselves in inappropriate places at inappropriate times after marriage. (He shrugs) I just started letting my fangs down.

Amanda: (laughing) How did you feel when you found out your husband was a vampire?

Victoria: I was an emotional mess. I was terrified, concerned, worried for him, and yet I was drawn to him.

Dorian: She was the one unable to resist then.

Victoria: Need I remind you of what happened that night? You were not the most charming man.

Dorian: (Smiles) My inner beast had gotten the best of me. I had not fed and bloodlust was driving me crazy. I was worried that if I took Victoria’s blood I would kill her. (He lovingly squeezed her hand) I almost did.

Amanda: Is that when you realized she was your mate?

Dorian: I think I knew before but did not want to allow myself to believe it. All the vampire rulers that came before me have been victims of the curse. There was nothing to make me think I would be different, until I met Victoria.

Amanda: This is all very interesting and I would love to ask you more questions but we are out of time and I don’t want to give too much away to the readers. Thank you very much for your time.

Dorian: Thank you for coming.

Victoria: You are welcome here anytime.

Amanda: Thank you again and I hope you have a wonderful anniversary getaway.

Dorian Vlakhos is no ordinary aristocrat. He is a vampire king, who will do anything to save his clan from complete annihilation, before an ancient curse can claim his immortal life.

Penniless and orphaned, Victoria Kingston has nothing to bring to a marriage, yet she must shackle an unsuspecting gentleman into marriage by the end of the month or forfeit her rights as guardian of her younger sister. With the help of her dearest friend, Victoria begins her hunt, and vows to stay far away from the dark, mysterious, Dorian Vlakhos.

After meeting the beautifully innocent Miss Kingston, Dorian had to have her. He would do absolutely anything to make Victoria his. One sweet stolen kiss would bring them together while a force, more powerful than any vampire would bind them for all eternity. But treachery, war, and death rule Dorian’s dark world and Victoria would be fortunate to survive.
