Vampirerotique Winter Book Tour: Character Interview + Giveaway

Interview with the sexy incubus-vampire

 from Bewitch by Felicity Heaton

Hey hey hey Everyone! 

I have Felicity Heaton here today and she's brought a very special guest from Bewitch with her for an interview.

Plus, Felicity has something to offer up as a giveaway for a lucky winner here on the blog AND a fantabulous Amazon GC and fantastic book goodies tour wide giveaway to enter! So be sure to follow the tour carefully!

I'd like to say a big thank you to Felicity for letting me be part of this tour! So, I won't leave you guys hanging anymore...It´s time for me to stop talking, and give the word to our guests instead. Felicity, The word is yours!

Thank you for having me here today at The Secret Sanctuary of Books as part of my Vampirerotique Winter Tour celebrating the series and my latest release, Bewitch.

Today, I’ll be talking to the hero of the fifth book in the Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series, the oh-so-sexy vampire, Payne.

Payne was the second of the new recruits that show up in Antoine’s book, Seduce. Payne is an elite vampire and the ultimate man of mystery. Dark and brooding, he keeps his distance from everyone and keeps to himself. He isn’t interested in connecting with people and does all he can to keep his name clean so no one will probe into his personal life. 

A man with secrets almost as dark as Antoine’s, Payne is challenged every day at the theatre and finds it difficult to work there, despite his casual and unaffected air. Having had his heart broken once, he has done his best to stay away from females and keep his hungers under control, but when he needed to work with a witch to help a friend, Payne faced his biggest challenge yet.

Read on to find out more about Payne from the vampire himself.

FH: I’ve managed to get Payne here with me today to talk about his book, Bewitch. You must be in a good mood as you’ve been very helpful with this tour. Enjoying being the centre of attention for a change?

PAYNE: Not really... Elissa threatened to deprive me of sex for a day if I misbehaved and refused to talk to people.

FH: Sex deprivation for a whole day probably sounds quite cushy but considering your nature, and how hot you are for her, it’s probably akin to a year of torture. Let’s kick things off by talking more about you. Tell us a little about yourself.

PAYNE: *scrubs a hand over his blond spikes* I’m guessing people probably know a few things about me already, like the fact that I’m not one hundred percent vampire. I was born to an elite family a few centuries back, but I have incubus genes too. It’s not something I like to talk about, but I’m learning to accept that it’s part of who I am. I’ve been working at Vampirerotique, a theatre in London that caters exclusively to a vampire crowd, for a few months now and I figured I would hate the place because it deals in erotic shows, but I’ve taken a liking to the place, and the people.

FH: They’re a close-knit bunch at Vampirerotique. Like a family. In Bewitch, you meet Elissa. How did you meet and how did you feel about her initially?

PAYNE: Ah... just the sound of her name makes me... well, you get the picture. I swear I’m worse now than I was before I became a mated male. I’m sure you’re picturing dirty shit right about now. Pervert. *grins*

FH: I wasn’t, actually. You’re the pervert. Now answer the question about Elissa.

PAYNE: There it is again... the name of my wicked witch. To be honest, I wanted nothing to do with her when I saved her fine arse back in that fae town. I knew she was trouble the second I realised I couldn’t control her. I wasn’t looking for a mate, not after the crap I’ve been through, but my fae sucks and I figured I could use her to find out where I was supposed to go to meet up with this contact I’d found. I wanted to help Chica by finding her a way out of her little problem. Not sure I can talk too much about that... too... what’s that word you said to me before we started? You told me not to get too...

FH: Spoilerish. *he grins at me like I’m an idiot* It’s a perfectly good made up word. No, best we don’t go into details about Chica and her problem. So you weren’t really into Elissa at first. You certainly changed your tune though.

PAYNE: *nods* It’s hard to resist her when she turns on the wicked witch routine. She’s one fiery woman. *stares into the distance*

FH: *snaps her fingers* Come back before your eyes do that gold and blue thing, and I start wriggling on my seat. I warned you about turning on the charm before, remember? Elissa might be able to resist it, but the rest of us can’t. Now, I have a few questions that Andrea really wanted answered too and I’ve vetted them. I’m sure you’ll like them. She would like to know what were your first impressions of the guys at Vampirerotique?

PAYNE: *scrubs his hair again* You know they’ll read this shit and I’ll get into trouble if I say something they don’t like... but... well, I knew Callum from a long time ago. I met him shortly after a dark phase in my life. His family knew mine and we got along okay, and he never bothered me by asking about things I didn’t want to speak about. Shortly after that, his family moved away, but we stayed in touch. He helped me through some bad stuff, so I felt I had to help him out when he asked me. I have not seen much of Callum but I expected that. I thought perhaps I would be able to spend most of my time alone, in solitude, only coming out when needed to scout for performers. That part of the job I can do easily enough with only minimal trouble.

FH: You’re talking about controlling that part of your nature you would rather not have? The incubus part.

PAYNE: It is more difficult when I’m here at the theatre and someone wants me to go backstage, or be around the practices, or things like that. Since the arrival of the succubus, and the owners of the theatre coming to know more about me, I have been more relaxed. Antoine no longer asks me to oversee the practices when he’s busy. I’m grateful for that.

FH: You’ve made other friends too though. You and Andreu seem to have grown close.

PAYNE: Andreu is a good man. He’s a fool for falling in love with a succubus, but she seems to have eyes only for him too, so I have no need to kill her for hurting him.

FH: Spoken like a true friend. Hurt my buddy and I’ll rip out your heart and feed it to you. What about the others?

PAYNE: Javier is good. I get along well with him now. Antoine can be difficult, but the guy has a lot on his plate, especially at the moment. I think I royally screwed things up with Snow though...

FH: Snow will get over it and everything will be cool again, I’m sure of it. Andrea also wants to know, and I quote “Seriously, what do you do on a regular day basis? I know you're kinda occupied with Elissa and Luca, but what does your typical day looks like? You can go into details, it's a blog for adults, just sayin'”

PAYNE: *smiles and my knees go a bit weak* Use your imagination. Seriously, most of the time I’m either working with Callum on the performers and the shows, or I’m fooling about with Luca. He keeps me really busy. The rest of the time, my wicked witch is the one keeping me busy. She has an appetite, and so do I. I can’t get enough of her.

FH: Now that we’ve seen that you’re capable of smiling, I have to ask you one of Andrea’s other questions. She says, “You don't smile often, let alone laugh... so, what does have the power to make you laugh, other than your new family?”

PAYNE: Ah... this’ll be a major turn off but I’m a bit of a schadenfreude.

FH: Meaning you take pleasure from other people’s misfortune.

PAYNE: *nods* Twisted, I know... I’m one of those people who can’t help but laugh if someone falls over or bad shit happens. Not my best quality, but I can’t help it. Laugh first, ask if they’re all right later.

FH: I know that quality well. I have a tendency to do the same. My husband likes to remind me what I am whenever I snigger if someone trips and does that embarrassing stagger-recover in the street.

PAYNE: You’re married? A mated female... I never knew. I’ll watch my incubus around you more now. We mated people have to stick together.

FH: You’re certainly taking to the role of mated male and family man. Andrea has one more question. Quick, you get one wish! What did you wish for?

PAYNE: *shrugs* Nothing. I have everything I want.

FH: You’re so damn sweet sometimes. *he growls* Not falling for it. So how has life been since you and Elissa got together, and will we be seeing more of you in the rest of the series?

PAYNE: It’s been great. Rocky at times but Elissa is wonderful. I’m blessed to have her, even when she drives me insane. She’s become integral to my life now. I couldn’t imagine a world without her and I’m glad she stuck with me, and gave me a shot. Not many women would. Elissa is special and even when I’m being difficult, she’s there for me, talking me down and telling me that she loves me. Ah, now I sound like a pansy. As for the rest of the series, you’ll see me around.

FH: Describe yourself in one word?

PAYNE: Irresistible.

FH: Really? Are you certain that shouldn’t be incorrigible, or irritating, or moody?

PAYNE: Nope. Irresistible... I’m sticking with that one. *grins*

FH: This mated thing suits you. You’re much easier to talk to now. Thank you for meeting with me today and chatting. I’ll let you get back to your lady and your lad now, and prepare myself to speak with her.

Bewitch (Vampire Erotic Theatre Romance Series Book 5)
Felicity Heaton

A vampire with a past stained with blood and a soul tainted with darkness, he is perfect in his self-control, never surrendering to his darkest desires. Now a beautiful witch in the shadowy fae underworld threatens to reawaken long denied hungers and tempts him with carnal pleasure.

Payne despises the incubus side of his mixed genes and refuses to give it free rein, but when the wickedly sexy Elissa offers him a possible way to help a friend, he finds it difficult to resist paying the price, even if it will be his undoing—one night of passion at her command.

Elissa is a witch down on her luck until Payne comes crashing into her life. The dangerously handsome male is the key to fulfilling a promise she made, but he is also forbidden, and surrendering to the wildfire passion he stirs within her means risking ruin and death.

When one incredible night of fulfilling their deepest fantasies leads to more than just a pathway to keeping a promise and saving a friend, will they be able to overcome the barriers that stand between them and forever?
