Giveaway + Interview: Aflame (Apotheosis #1) by Krissy Daniels

Aflame (Apotheosis #1)
by Krissy Daniels

Genre: Paranormal/Fantasy Romance
Publisher: Kensington/Lyrical Press
Number of pages: 218
Cover Artist: Renee Rocco

To save her soul, he’ll let her burn.

Grayce has been on the run for years. Having escaped an abusive relationship with a violent psychopath, she is trying to rebuild her life one small step at a time. Things are going well until Zander crosses her path, badass and sexy as hell. His presence awakens heated desires she long ago buried. Last thing Grayce wants is a man, and the way her body reacts to Zander scares her more than the threat of being found.

Tyr will do anything to get his little dove back. She is a Beacon, and her raw, burning energy gives him power and strength. More than the evil that already compels him. But a blond giant of a man hovers protectively around her. No matter. He’ll play with him too.

When Zander rescues Grayce from Tyr’s first attempt to reclaim her, he reveals his superhuman abilities. Power that Grayce also has, but has yet to understand. As predestined soul mates, Zander must help Grace control her rage before her fire threatens to destroy everyone and everything in her path. But his true challenge is more than that—to show her it’s possible to trust and love again.

Krissy is a full time writer, reader and lover of all things romance.

As a child surrounded by the great outdoors, life was full of adventure that fueled an overactive imagination and ignited a passion for storytelling. Whether it be dolls, or running free through the wooded areas surrounding her home, playtime always included a tormented villain, a damsel in dis-tress and a larger than life hero.

After relentless encouragement from friends and family, she finally put the characters in her head to pen and paper. The only thing she loves more than curling up with a steamy romance novel, is cozying up to her desk and writing her own sexy adventures to share with others.

Shut Up & Read welcomes Krissy Daniels today!

Q:  Tell us a little bit about your main characters.
Hi Sheri! Thank you so much for having me!
The main characters in Aflame are Grayce and Zander. Grayce hates men, has a foul mouth to rival any trucker and a nuclear temper. Zander has a heart of gold, muscles of steel and superhuman strength. He is one-hundred percent alpha male and all about taking care of his lady.

Q:  What was your favorite scene to write?
One of my very favorites is the scene where Zander takes Grayce to a remote lake and says some terrible things to piss her off. He needs to test her abilities and see how powerful she is. It doesn’t take long for her to go nuclear.

Q:  What is your work schedule like when you're writing?
As soon as I get the kids off to school in the morning and I sit down to write. I work until I have to pick them up again. After dinner, I get back to it, until my brain shuts down for the night.

Q:  How has your environment/upbringing colored your writing?
I’ve always been a dreamer. I grew up in a small town, near a river, a lake, and surrounded by wilderness. Every time we went outside, an adventure awaited us. We didn’t have television, toys, Playstations, computers or iPads. It was all about imagination! I’ve been making up stories for as long as I can remember. That was our entertainment.

Q:  If you could be any character from your book, who would you be and why?
I’d want to be Stephen. He’s only six but already powerful. He’s still got his whole life ahead of him and he’s surrounded by cool grown ups with awesome superhuman abilities!

Q:  What do you do to unwind and relax?
Read, read, read! I don’t get to read enough.

Q:  If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?
I’ve never been outside of the United States. I’d be happy for the chance to travel anywhere. I’ve always wanted to go to Spain. Not sure why. Probably the food. 

Q:  What book are you reading now?
I just finished Mud Vein by Tarryn Fisher. Wow. Getting ready to dive into The Resurrection of Aubrey Miller by L.B. Simmons.
