Part two of Interview with My Vampire - Amber's story

Luxie:
Dear Readers, please say hello to Amber Kirkwood, a 35 year old University Lecturer who is currently a 'guest' of Malachi Bane, the vampire who is fighting to keep her alive.

Amber:
Hi

Luxie:
So...how are things going since I sat down with Bane?

Amber:
Not good.  I know something is wrong but Bane won't tell me what it is.  That big lump thinks he should hide the truth from me, but all he does is make me more nervous.

Luxie:
I got the impression he thinks you are blaming yourself for what happened. I think his intentions are good-

Amber:
His intentions are always good, but that doesn't change the fact that I've got a whole army of vampires trying to kill me because of him.

Luxie:
You mean because he started the landslide in an attempt to stop you and David from staying on the island? Are you still angry at him?

Amber:
I...I was, but then I realised he had no way of knowing that I would be on the hill when the landslide began.  And nobody could have predicted how David would react!

Luxie:
David deserted you, didn't he?

Amber:
Sure as hell did! I didn't know that at first, but when David came to see me in the hospital after I was rescued, he told me. He was rambling on about some freakishly huge, supernaturally strong guy who had saved me when he let it slip that he'd been watching the events unfold from the dinghy, already out to sea.

Luxie:
I can't believe he just left you there to die...I thought David cared for you?

Amber:
I'm not sure he actually cared at all for me. I do know he wanted an affair.  I'd made it clear to him many times in the past that I wasn't interested and that our relationship was purely a professional one, but when I invited him along on the study trip, he thought I was giving him the green light.

 
Luxie:
Ok, I can understand that his pride might have been hurt by your constant rejections but surely he would not have let any harm come to you?

Amber:
He says he was going for help, and I will never know now if he was telling the truth or not. 

 

Luxie:
That's right - he died not long after your rescue.

Amber:
 He suffered a painful, horrific death at the hands of one of Katerina's assassins.  He didn't deserve that, no matter what Bane says.

Luxie:
He has no sympathy for David?

Amber:
Malachi thinks he brought it on himself and damned me into the bargain.

Luxie:
 I can understand Bane's anger. Thanks to David, the Fratia want you dead and, thanks to the Fratia, the police think you murdered David.

Amber:
Detective Gillion seems to think I did it but he can't figure out how.  All he knows for sure is that there are only two sets of prints in that apartment - mine and David's - and that the security cameras prove that we were the only people to enter his apartment in the hours leading up to his death.

Luxie:
So how did Bane and the assassin avoid getting picked up by the camera?

Amber:
Do you know, I've never thought to ask! I don't know how they got in, but I know Bane and I left by the main exit. Maybe that's one of the vampire myths that turned out to be true - you know, that you can't see their reflection or photograph them.

Luxie:
Why were you in David's apartment?

Amber:
The hospital wouldn’t discharge me unless I had someone to keep an eye on me.  I couldn't handle the thought of my mother coming down from Kittery and getting all hysterical, so I let David railroad me into staying with him.  I guess he didn't want the press getting to me before he'd worked out some kind of deal with them but I was too tired to care. He let me have the bedroom to myself and that's where I was when I woke up and found Bane skulking in the shadows, telling me not to move.

Luxie:
How did he know you were there?

Amber:
Turns out, he'd been trailing us for hours.  Once he realised that we were in danger, he hoped to scare David into keeping quiet about what he had seen, but it was too late.  The first assassin came that night and Bane couldn't be sure that he'd come alone, so he stayed by my side to protect me.

Luxie:
 Weren't you scared? I mean you had no idea who he was back then, right?  I've met Bane and, handsome as he is, I wouldn't want to bump into him in a dark alley.
 

Amber:
No, I didn't remember a thing.  Of course, my first reaction as sheer terror - but Bane does this thing...with his eyes.  He kind of hypnotises people.

Luxie:
What do you mean?

Amber:
I'm not sure really.  All I know is that whenever I am really scared, he looks at me and I just...relax, for want of a better word.  In fact, I'm sure he's forced me to fall asleep once or twice.  And I know he can use his mind in other ways, like making you feel as if he is touching you when he isn't.

Luxie:
Touching you how?

Amber:

I mean...well, judging by the look on your face, you know what I mean!

Luxie:
Yes, I think I do.  How intriguing! So you've been...intimate?

Amber:
Yes, but no thanks to Malachi!  Bane is a true, old-fashioned Southern gentleman who just happens to be a vampire.  Besides the fact he seemed obsessed with denying himself any pleasure as some kind of penance for what he has become, he just wouldn't believe that I truly wanted him.  He thought I was just reacting to a lure, designed to attract prey.  I told him that was a crock.  He didn't like that much either.  Apparently, modern women swear too much...

Luxie:
So why did things become intimate between you? When did you stop being afraid of him?

Amber:
Once I spent some time with him and saw what a decent man he was.  Besides, he's a good looking guy...

Luxie:
You can say that again! Sorry... I mean, I've already met him, remember? You were saying...

Amber:
I still don't know if we are going to get through this or not.  I may not be able to do anything to stop it but I'm damned if my last few days on earth are going to be spent waiting for death to find me.  I wanted Malachi more than I've ever wanted any other man and, despite what he said, I knew he wanted me too.

Luxie:
When I spoke to Bane, one thing was clear.  He would rather die than let anything happen to you.

Amber:
Butthat's just it, I don't want anyone else to die for me - especially not Bane.  If he dies, then there is no-one left to protect me, and I'm dead anyway.  So what in the hell did he die for?

Luxie:
Have you told him how you feel?

Amber:
He tries to take away my guilt by claiming he's doing this for himself, not me.  He vows that Katerina never again take away someone he cares for.

Luxie:
So you don't want him to die, and I'm sure you are in no hurry to meet your end, so why are you rejecting the solution he has put forward?

Amber:
What - me becoming a vampire like Bane?  I couldn't do that.

Luxie:
Don't you want to stay with him?

Amber:
Of course I do, but not at any cost.

Luxie:
He is offering eternity.

Amber:
And the price of that eternity is allowing him to end my life, at the cost of my soul. 

Luxie:
But doesn't immortality mean you will never have to pay the price?

Amber:
So that means I should I forget about God and everything I believe in? Besides, I've seen vampires die a permanent death too.   

Luxie:
I never thought of it that way.  So what happens now?

Amber:
We wait for the inevitable.  Something is coming; I can feel it...although Malachi thinks I don't know.  All I ask for is a little more time with him.

Luxie:

Well, I offered Bane my prayers but I just made him angry...

 

Amber: 

I'll take them Luxie, thank you.  We need all the help we can get.


Luxie:
Goodbye Amber, and good luck.

Interview with My Vampire

 

Luxie:
Dear Readers. Please say hello to my guest Malachi Bane, a former Louisiana Plantation owner from the 18th century, who is now a vampire, currently living on an island in the Maine Archipelago. Welcome Mr. Bane.

Bane:
Thank you.

Luxie:
May I call you Malachi?

Bane:
I'd rather you called me Bane.

Luxie:
Of course. And you can call me anytime you like.

Bane:
Why?

Luxie:
Just my little joke. I'm nervous.

Bane:
I don't understand-

Luxie:
Just forget it, ok? Now, Malachi... sorry, I mean Bane...what was the first thought that went through your head when you laid eyes on Amber.

Bane:
How I could end her life without frightening her.

Luxie:
What?!

Bane:
Please forgive my blunt answer. I did not intend to shock you. She and her friend intruded upon my privacy and threatened my solitude. You must understand - I am a soldier and a vampire. Until I met Amber, humans were always only prey or adversaries.

Luxie:
But you don't feel that way anymore? I mean...should I be worried?

Bane:
You have no need to fear me. I learned to control those urges a century ago. But when I am threatened or challenged, it is harder to remember the vow I made to never again hunt humans for food.

Luxie:
Phew! Ok and your second thought?

Bane:
My second thought was that I was naked.

Luxie:
As in no clothes?

Bane:
Those who live alone have no need for clothing.

Luxie:
You never wear clothes?

Bane:
Not when I'm alone. Is this really what you wanted to talk to me about?

Luxie:
You mean to tell me that you ramble around on that almost inhabitable island stark naked? What about sunburn or frost bite? You're a gigantic motherfu...I mean, you're a big guy. There's a lot of you to burn.

Bane:
The cold doesn't affect me at all. However, were I to spend too much time in the sun, sunburn would be the least of my concerns.

Luxie:
So what does Amber think of that?

Bane:
I have not told her. She is blaming herself for enough as it is.

Luxie:
So she is a fugitive from the law after being falsely accused of David's death and is practically your hostage, but she thinks it's her fault?

Bane:
No, she blames me for that. And she is right. This is my doing.

Luxie:
You caused this?

Bane:
When I changed my mind about killing them and had to save Amber's life, I didn't have time to worry what David might see me do. It took every ounce of my enhanced speed and strength to save her. When I realised what he had seen, the only way to silence him would have been to kill him, but I let him escape in order to raise the alarm and bring help for Amber.

Luxie:
Did that help arrive?

Bane:
Yes, the next day - after I'd spend a night tortured by her nearness and vulnerability. She began to hallucinate and thought I was her dead husband. Amber clung to me, her body entwined with mine as she stroked my hair. I tried to pull away but she always became distressed, so I simply endured the agony of being close to her and did not leave her side until the helicopter arrived.

Luxie:
So Amber was rescued but what happened to David? He got to the mainland obviously, so how did he die?

Bane:
The fool caused his own death and put Amber in mortal danger. It was indiscreet of me to allow a human to see what I was, but if David had simply been grateful rather than greedy, he would still be alive today. By calling the press, he threatened to expose The Fratia. Ulrich, our leader, would never allow that.

Luxie:
Your people - The Fratia - killed David?

Bane:
Ulrich only ordered that I ensure their silence. It was his daughter, Katerina who had David killed. She will do the same to Amber if she gets her way.

Luxie:
But why does Katerina care about Amber? More to the point, why do you?

Bane:
Katerina doesn't care, not directly. The events coming to a head now were set in motion many centuries ago. Katerina was my maker and I defied her by leaving her. She has never forgiven me, nor allowed me to find love. When she heard of the risks I had taken to save a woman, especially a mere mortal, she became irrationally jealous and ordered them killed without her father's knowledge. I've already slaughtered three good men in order to protect Amber and I'd kill every last one of them before I let Katerina take her.

Luxie:
Don't you simply need to get word to Ulrich?

Bane:
The old fool would never deny his daughter to save the life of a human. No, I had no choice but to get her out of Augusta and take her to my island. It's the only place I have a chance of protecting her.

Luxie:
And you Bane, why do you care what happens to Amber?

Bane:
Amber is the bravest, most compassionate woman I have met in either of my lives. She is beautiful, funny, intelligent and spirited. It would be a sin for one so special to die because of me. It should not happen. I will not allow it to happen...

Luxie:
You seem quite taken with her.

Bane:
I must confess, the thought of any harm coming to her tortures me. I...I asked her to stay with me...forever. To let me change her so we can be together always, but she refused. She considers it suicide and fears for her soul. She does not want to offend her God.

Luxie:
It makes you angry that she is a Catholic?

Bane:
Amber would give up eternity in exchange for a fairytale.

Luxie:
So what happens now?

Bane:
I fear the end is near. Solomon, my brother in arms and the only vampire who is my equal will no doubt be sent to the island. I know Katerina - she thinks I will give Amber up rather than kill my friend. She is wrong but it doesn't matter because I cannot be sure I will win.

Luxie:
What will Solomon do to Amber if he wins?

Bane:
We will never know, because I will never allow him to take her life. Unlike me, Solomon relishes what he is and will allow his nature full reign. I will never submit her to that fate. I vow that if the end ever comes and all seems lost, I will do the deed myself. Only I will ensure she feels no pain and has no fear.

Luxie:
I pray it doesn't come to that...

Bane:
More prayers? Do humans cling to the myth of a deity because reality is too horrific to bear?

Luxie:
I know what I believe, and it seems Amber agrees with me. Speaking of Amber, where is she now?

Bane:
She was sleeping when I left her side. I must go - we have so little time left that I am loathe to waste more of it. I bid you goodbye.

Luxie:
Goodbye Bane, and good luck.

 Worth Dying For

 


 

Worth Dying For - coming February 28th from Total-E-Bound

Is a vampire's love worth dying for?

Malachi Bane had been condemned to live forever without the woman he would love until the day he died. He waits out eternity in isolation, on a small island in the Maine Archipelago. When a visiting couple threatens his peaceful existence, Bane prepares to kill them if he has to, in order to defend his home and protect his privacy. Instead, he is compelled to save the life of the woman he has become strangely fascinated with, not realising the consequences of his actions at first.

Amber Kirkwood isn't impressed by Bane's macho attitude and has no idea how she got embroiled in the mess her life has become. Her rescue from the island and subsequent arrest for her colleague David's unexplained death, sets off a chain of events she has no control over and no desire to be a part of. On top of that, she is then kidnapped by Bane and held hostage so he can protect her from Katerina, the vengeful female who created him and has never forgiven him for leaving her.

When the physical and emotional bonds begin to grow between the unlikely couple, Bane longs to 'change' Amber, in order to save her life and keep her with him forever. But she fears for her immortal soul and, with so much at stake, Amber can't be sure that what she feels for Bane truly is worth dying for.

Reader Advisory: This book contains moderate horror and mild scenes of violence.

New Review!  4.5 Blue Ribbons for Midnight Rodeo from Romance Junkies
 

MIDNIGHT RODEO is the first story in Luxie Ryder’s MIDNIGHT COWBOYS series.  This story kicks off this series with a rousing plot that leaves readers salivating for more.  Talia, Reb and Cody’s intense relationship captivates the imagination and keeps you guessing at what will happen between them.  This is a story that had me laughing one moment and on the verge of tears the next and anxious for a resolution to the whole situation. After reading this story and falling a little in love with these characters myself I’m anxious for the next book in the series and the rest of the series because resisting a sexy cowboy is futile even at the best of times. The next story in the MIDNIGHT COWBOYS series, TWO COWBOYS FOR CHRISTIE, is due to be released in early 2009

A Note From Luxie Ryder

 

DANCE LIKE NOBODY'S WATCHING

 

By Clea 

Rating: 5+ Bookwenches Keeper

 

 

I also love the fact that Luxie Ryder can fit three exciting, passionate and sweet love scenes in a book that is only fifty-six pages, along with a complete and well told story. She didn’t skimp on setting the scenes, or making her characters realistic, and I never felt like I was missing any part of the story. That is a sign of a great writer. Dance like Nobody’s Watching is a funny, fast paced and light hearted story that was a hoot to read. Well done Ms. Ryder; well done.

The chemistry between Sherrie and Ty is very sexy.  There is magnetism between the two that they cannot possibly ignore.  When they do come together in intimate moments, the sex is combustible.  I really enjoyed reading Dance Like Nobody’s Watching.  It was a well-written, fast-paced read.  I was so engrossed in the great storyline that Ms. Ryder had spun, that I didn’t want it to end.  I would definitely recommend this book to lovers of the contemporary romance genre.  So, if you are looking for a new romance to read, I can wholeheartedly say that Dance Like Nobody’s Watching is a good place to start if you like romances with happy endings.

Rating: 4.5 Dark Divas

This was a wonderful short story sure to make even your seasoned romance reader pant and sigh. Dance Like Nobody’s Watching by Luxie Ryder is sexy and fun. She made this book flow smoothly and gave enough information to snag your attention.

Ty is a sexy, sweet guy in which I only once wanted to slap him. LOL He’s a dancer for a TV dance show and can have any lady he wants, except the one he truly wants. Can he convince her that he wants only her?

Sherrie is a strong heroine, which I found myself rooting for throughout the story. Her disability did not stop her. So when the sexy Ty came on to her, what’s a girl to do?

The plot of the story was heart touching, but every great romance needs a bad girl to stir the pot. Diana was a true contender. Will she make it or will Sherri wise-up to her tricks? You can only find out if you read Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

Ms. Ryder, thank you for this story; your fans will love you for it.

By Danielle

 

Rating: 4 cups

 

Dance like Nobody’s Watching is a beautiful and soulful tale. I loved how Ms. Ryder added sensuality, romance, and humor to this novel. It gives it a quality that I find endearing and had me turning pages as fast as I could. The way Sherrie fights with Ty about her disability, only to realize how she is belittling herself, makes this book seem that much more realistic and gives the reader the chance to relate to her. This book is one hot commodity and something you can definitely look forward to enjoying.

 

SACRIFICE

Book Wenches Review - http://www.bookwenches.com/september10reviews.htm#639569272

By Teagan S. Boyd

Rating: 4

Ms. Ryder succeeds in bringing a vampiric world to life in a unique manner in this story. I am a fan of vampires, and just when I expect there to be nowhere else to go with this storyline, I find myself pleasantly surprised. Sacrifice rolls quite a bit into such a small package. The story evolves quickly and keeps the reader interested.

If you are looking for a quick, easy story with a bit of suspense, this book will do the trick. I enjoy Ms. Ryder's work, and look forward to reading more.


Dark Diva Reviews - http://www.darkdivasreviews.com/?p=2559

"Sacrifice by Luxie Ryder is a spicy little vampire story to set your pulse a racing. This book has an unbelievable cast of characters, and a plotline sure to please any paranormal reader. The backdrop makes me feel as if I am there among all the action.
You have two amazing leads, Hallie a sweet loving gal who lost her heart to the new stranger that came to town. Once she knows his true secret will she stay or turn and run? Hallie actually has a take no crap side to her that makes me happy as a clam. I mean…come on she needs to be strong with what is coming for her. Oh then there is Ethan, YUM! Even before his vampage he was one hot commodity. With this awesome lead in and one evil Vampire named Silas is there any wonder why this short book is a spine chiller.

Rated 4 Delightful Divas by Deb!"


Happily Ever After reviews - http://hea-reviews.blogspot.com/2010/09/review-sacrifice-by-luxie-ryder.html

"Luxie Ryder's writing was impeccable in this vampire love story.  Ryder describes Hallie's new roommate as a tall handsome journalist who kept to himself, Ethan Butler. Ethan's story about his transformation, his love for his roommate and his desire to keep Hallie safe was wonderful.

Ryder described Hallie Matheson, store owner, as a courageous young woman that goes after what she wants. Hallie will not let anything stand in her way of love, not even if the man she is falling in love with is not what she thinks.  Quote from the book: "She'd never be able to equal a vampire's sacrifice but she'd spend her life proving he'd been right to make it." If you want to learn the big surprise that will leave you speechless after the revenge is over, you have to read this book!

4 Tea Cups!"

FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY


 

Rating: 4 Stars
Heat level: H

As a successful Latino rock singer, Ruben Navarro has all the luxury and power he could stomach. Women were no problem for him, readily available and eager to please, but one look at Dr. Bethany Shaw and his skin begins to tingle with anticipation. Quite taken in by the flamboyant man with spiky bleached blond hair, Bethany just wants to stop being dependable and serious for just one sinful night with the rock star. While the couple is exploring their newfound passion, an intense, dark and deadly presence is threatening to turn the steamy nights into a life-and-death situation.

Ruben was not a true hero by my standards. His globally famous personality is mesmerizing but he made his share of mistakes that lead the pair through heartache and more. I know that Bethany is full of doubts resulting from an earlier disastrous relationship but I expected more backbone and self-confidence from a person who is a doctor. Don’t get me wrong, I do sympathize with her but I needed to see a bit more courage to respect her fully. Their relationship is an intensely sexual one but they still are a bit uneasy with each other especially the ‘morning-after’ leaves them a bit queasy. I could really feel Bethany’s turmoil as she tries hard not to let the doubts and suspicions creep in her newly found relationship. The sex they share is exhilarating making you blush. Once the duo meets, the pacing became unstoppable. One thing or the other kept happening until your head is spinning. Ms. Ryder knows how to tell a story and has handled complex emotions like jealousy, envy, infatuation like a pro. I was quite taken with the hurt, confused, and emotionally fragile villain who really deserved something else. Although shaky at times, For One Night Only is indeed very entertaining mix of spine tingling twists and red-hot loving!

Reviewed by Anne Boling for ReviewYourBook.com 08/08

When Dr. Bethany Shaw was asked to treat Rock Star Reuben Navarro she never expected to be so attracted to him. Reuben knew she was not usually his type, and yet he wanted her, he needed her.   An obsessed fan was stalking Reuben, endangering Bethany’s life.

For One Night Only is a sizzling love story. You could feel the sexual tension between Bethany and Reuben. The characters worked well together and were well-developed. The plot caught my attention and held it to the last word. Great summer reading,

 

is a refreshing unique contemporary romance that I thoroughly enjoyed. I was riveted by the characters and read the entire story in one sitting. From the very beginning of the story where Bethany goes to medically check out Ruben, the chemistry and sexual heat is there between them, and sparks fly. Yet you can feel the characters struggles with leaving it as one night only or trying to build a relationship. How does a strong, independent doctor with her own career like Bethany Shaw emotionally build and maintain a relationship with a rock star, a person who is bigger than life, but is just an incredibly sexy man when it is just the two of them. Ruben’s life is open to the public and his every move is scrutinized and stalked, could Bethany handle his lifestyle and constant travel, would she want to, and what does she have to give up to be with him. The two travel to Miami and across the world to Paris together to see if there newfound love can work, while at the same time they are stalked by a crazed fan. As Ruben’s past transgressions in life catch up with him the story unfolds at an emotional heart stopping pace. I highly recommend this hot steamy love story and I look forward to reading many more stories written by Ms Ryder.
