I posted this as my blog on October 2, 2016. Unfortunately, I was out of town at that time and wasn't able to properly promote it. So…since this is a witch story set at the time of Halloween-Samhain, I'm posting it again. I hope you enjoy the character interview.
HIS MAGICK TOUCH an erotic witch romance available in ebook that tells us the story of Devon Bainbridge and Raina St. Clair. So, in honor of the Samhain celebration and it's more modern Halloween counterpart, I've invited Devon and Raina to be my guests today.
Welcome to my blog, Devon and Raina. Thank you for taking time from your schedule to be here today, especially with how busy you are due to the special gathering of covens for the Samhain celebration.
Raina: It's our pleasure, Samantha. Thanks for the invitation.
It's my understanding, Devon, that as a High Priest you've been invited to open and close the special ceremony involving the gathering of many covens from various states at this year's Samhain celebration.
Devon: Yes, it's a very special gathering this year. I'm honored to have been chosen.
And isn't it that gathering of the covens that's indirectly responsible for bringing the two of you together? Two people who had never met but each with your own agenda in seeking out the other? And you first encountered each other at a Halloween party, of all places?
Raina: (laughs) That succinctly describes it. The uncomfortable situation of a witch of the bloodline at a mortal's Halloween party.
Why would you be attending such a party? Doesn't it violate everything you stand for and represent?
Raina: Even though I'm a witch and immortal, I still need to earn a living. The man throwing the party, the one who invited me, is one of my best clients. So, even though the party theme wasn't to my liking, I felt an obligation to put in an appearance.
Devon: And it was due to Raina being at the party that I needed to be there. I didn't know if I would be able to make a connection with her at the Samhain celebration, so I sucked up my disgust at the notion of attending a Halloween party and teleported inside the country club to the party location and waited for her to arrive.
So why were you each trying to make contact with the other? You had no prior connection, right?
Devon: A prior connection? That's an easy answer. A definitive yes…and no. (chuckles) I had never met Raina but I had crossed paths with her sister, Miranda, a century ago. Miranda and I had some unfinished business. Since Miranda had been deftly avoiding me, my plan was to use Raina to locate her sister. I've always lived by the witch's credo of Harm To None (a quick scowl darts across his face), but my unfinished business with Miranda was in total violation of that honorable intention.
What kind of unfinished business?
Devon: To put it as simply as possible, Miranda St. Clair misused and abused her witch powers and in so doing was responsible for the purposeful destruction of my brother. I fully intended to make her accountable to the council for her misdeeds and personally see to it that she did not escape retribution.
And did you?
Devon: I can't reveal that here, but it's all in the book.
(LOL) Fair enough. How about you, Raina? How did you discover the truth of Devon's agenda? And what did you think when you found out what he really wanted?
Raina: Devon voluntarily told me about trying to locate Miranda and why. But his assumption that I could help him with that was mistaken. Miranda and I…well, we've…(a look of sadness comes into her eyes, Devon reaches over and gives her hand a reassuring squeeze). Well, it's all in the book.
LOL…It seems that you're both stonewalling me. Let me try this. Raina, what about your agenda in wanting to make contact with Devon? What was that all about?
Raina: I had never met Devon in person, but knew his excellent reputation as a very powerful High Priest and the respect paid him by the members of the witch community. I had planned to seek him out at the Samhain gathering and was quite surprised to see him at my business client's Halloween party. Why was I determined to meet him? Devon is an acknowledged expert in all facets of sex magick. I wanted him to teach me…to school me in the proper rituals.
Was he surprised by your request and did he agree to teach you the rituals?
Raina: Well, to quote something I heard recently—I can't tell you that…you'll need to read the book.
The two of you are telling me the same thing? Neither of you will disclose the information about how you resolved your issues? You won't tell me what kind of impact Raina's unexpected request about sex magick had on Devon's quest to find Miranda and seek retribution?
Devon: (winks at me) I believe you've grasped the core of the situation.
Raina: In other words…that's right! (LOL)
Fair enough. The answers are in the book! Thank you, Raina and Devon, for being with us today.
HIS MAGICK TOUCH R-Adult Excerpt #1:
She grabbed a napkin from the bar and dabbed at her neck and upper chest, leaving most of the champagne to trickle between her breasts.
He set the half-empty glass on the bar, surprise covering his features. “I’m so sorry.” A sincere concern surrounded his words. “Are you okay?”
Just the sound of his smooth masculine voice sent a ripple of desire coursing through her body, headed directly for her pussy. She gave him her most seductive smile as she continued to dab the champagne from her skin. “I’m fine, no problem.”
He ran his fingertip along the edge of her plunging neckline. “Can I be of assistance?” A quick glance down the front of her dress noticeably quickened his breathing. “I can lick up the excess champagne…if it will help.” His voice and words teased and a sexy grin tugged at the corners of his mouth, but the glow in the depth of his eyes radiated pure passion and sexual magnetism. The kind that could melt the most determined woman’s defenses.
Her nipples puckered, partly from the cold champagne and partly from his obvious perusal of her body combined with the sexual energy that practically sparked from him. Her heartbeat increased. Being this close to him had her juices flowing and her desires running at full speed. She definitely wanted to experience Devon’s sexual prowess and learn the techniques of sex magick from a master, to discover and embrace the untapped potential of her sexuality.
She smiled seductively. “That’s a very gracious offer."
BLURB: As the powerful High Priest of his coven, Devon Bainbridge lives by the witch's credo of Harm To None. Yet he is willing to sacrifice everything in his century long quest for revenge. He intends to use Raina St. Clair as a means of locating her sister, the witch who misused her powers to destroy his brother. But once he meets Raina, his plan doesn't go as intended, especially when he discovers her agenda. She wants to learn sex magick.
Is Raina the one woman who could save Devon from himself?
