Book Description:

Two worlds.

Separation and control were all they had ever known. The laws set by the iron fist of the Coven of Vampyres pass down to the human reverts was what their worlds were built upon. Love, passion, emotional yearning and above all, human and vampyre fraternization–all strictly forbidden. Yet, a moment’s encounter would soon change all that. One single embrace would alter their worlds forever.

The young vampyre, Sebastian of Orias, son of a ruling member of the Coven, and nineteen-year-old Kyra Dunning, daughter of the Chief Councilman in the human régime would soon learn what it means to feel an insatiable passion. This feeling caused the forbidden fruit to consume their hearts with hunger neither knew existed. To be apart was to die. Henceforth, they chose to break the rules, defy the Coven, and embrace this connection, regardless of the dangers that may unfold.

With marriages arranged, political power to centralize, and underground dissension to eradicate, both the Coven and the Council will stop at nothing to maintain order. And the love between Sebastian and Kyra, unbeknownst to them, may mean the end of everything they’ve ever known.

Guest Post:


Thank you all for having me. My name in Adom Sample and I’m the author of various contemporary romance, paranormal romance, and horror novels. First, I would like to share my personal playlist I created while writing COURTING MOON: VAMPYRES DESIRE. It can be found here: http://www.adomsample.com/playlist/

I made the playlist on my website as opposed to using my iTunes library because it kept making my computer freeze. Nothing is more frustrating than being in the middle of a scene and having your computer freeze up on you.

A little background on the development of the characters and the story itself. It actually all came to me in a dream I was having over a weekend. I woke up at three in the morning thinking I had to get ready for work until I realized it was a Saturday. After I was able to fall back to sleep I started dreaming of a vampire who fell in love with a human woman in a world where human being are rare. I knew if I had stayed sleeping, I would have gotten everything I just dreamt about so I woke up and made an email note of what I dreamt on my phone. The next day I made the outline and started writing. It’s funny because most of my story idea come to me while I’m sleeping or in the shower. Then I have to rush to jot them down before I forget them.     

I’d like to talk about the main characters loves interest, Sebastian of Orias. The story takes place about four months after their first encounter and in that time, they’ve gotten to know each other and developed a sense of friendship.

As time goes on, they both begin to look at each other on a more intimate level. The book meets us right in the middle of those intimate feeling and on the eve of Kyra’s birthday. As noted, each female and male in the human kingdom of Hymane must find a mate upon their twentieth birthday. Things get a little complicated Kyra finds out that her noble blood isn’t about to choose their mate like everyone else. Complicating things further are her feelings for Sebastian.

As the series develops, I plan to build an entire world around challenges they must face and the secrets they must reveal to end the tyrannical Coven.


For everyone who reads the novel please tell me about your reading experience. I enjoy receiving critique about character development, plot, and the like about my stories. I like to keep the reader engaged as well as creating a story they will enjoy. I welcome all commentary. Thank you for the pleasure of having my featured on your blog Full Moon Bites, and I hope we can do this again in the future.  


Excerpt:

The dark meadows and midnight air blast through her hair giving off a scent that would attract any Vampyre for miles. It was there he sensed her. It was there he could no longer deny himself the pleasure of getting to know who she was. The rules were set, and the laws were written, but none of that could keep him restrained. Not anymore.
His emotions fluttered, leaving him no other choice. He must take that chance, regardless of the prospect of rejection. For months, he watched her, lurking in the shadows of their lands, never giving thought as to what would happen if he were to be discovered. It was a risk he was more than willing to take, if only just to get a second glance of her beauty.
He was, after all, the son of a count, and he knew the rules better than anyone. Fraternization between Vampyre and human was strictly forbidden. The rules were imprinted in his brain from birth, but he had to choose differently. Was it her human frailty or the smell of her blood that drew him there every night? Whatever this enchanting spell was that led him to her lands took total control, forcing him to do things he thought he’d never do.
Romantic love was forbidden and after months of obsessing over this human woman, he was beginning to understand why. All rational thought escaped his mind whenever he was near her. The erratic and irrational impulses that made him sneak out of his room, cross the neutral territory, and enter their lands each night had overwhelmed him. He’d lost control, yet refused to do anything about it. This was who he wanted to be.
Henceforth, that night in the dark meadows, basking in the midnight air, he made his approach. Would she welcome him or fear him? What stories would she have heard about his kind that could force her to be reluctant by his presence? He had no choice, for it was too late to turn back now. She was alone, and he would never have an opportunity like this again. He pushed back the bushes, taking slow steps toward her. Hesitant, he thought about turning around and forgetting about her. He knew where this would lead. Still, he interjects his reason and pushes aside all logic, giving in to his wanting desire.
“Hello,” he whispered softly from behind. She froze. She knew the end was near. She knew the Vampyre creeping up behind her would make her his supper if she didn’t run, and quick. Without thought, she took off screaming for her life. Her action to his bold move didn’t surprise him at all; the only thing that entered his mind was how beautiful she looked when she ran away. He didn’t pursue right away. He stood there paralyzed, fearful that he would be discovered.
If anyone heard her screaming it would be the end of him. Before she could get too far, he headed her off, and in a flash was right in front of her. They had collided. She ran right into him. The touch of her soft warm skin sent a sense of inner peace and tranquility through this entire body.
They had their arms wrapped around each other like lovers in need. That sensual gaze he gave her forced the fear to melt away only to be replaced with apprehension and embarrassment.
“I will not harm you,” he said in a passionate whisper.
“What do you want from me?” Her voice trembled.
“Simple conversation.”
“You mean to kill me?”
“Of course not. But far be it for me to make you my meal someday.”
“Who are you?” She gave him an uneasy glance.
He stared into her eyes and smiled, brushing his fingers through her soft, long hair. And thus that single encounter, that bold embrace set forth the path they would go through together; placing things in motions that would tear the very boundaries of everything they’d ever known. Forever.
