Louisa Bacio - Book Review, Character Interview, Book Giveaway

PhotobucketHaunted by paranormal abilities that she can't control, and plagued by nightmares about a demon that seeks her soul, Lily Anima travels to New Orleans in search of salvation.
In the French Quarter, Lily dives into the paranormal world and enlists the help of an unlikely couple: a vampire, Lawrence Justice, and a werewolf, Trevor Pack.


As the trio encounters ghosts, voodoo and unspeakable evil, will Trevor and Lawrence be able to help Lily turn her powers into a gift rather than a curse? And when Lily discovers that she needs to lose her virginity in order to embrace her powers and get the demon off her back, will the twosome be able to survive as a threesome?



Review:

This book was awesome. I was not able to put it down. The pace, storyline, and plot kept me going to the wee-hours of the morning. It made me laugh, it made me mad, and it made me fog up my reading glasses. LOL! I loved the characters, they were very well developed and easily relatable. A good amount of New Orleans history is to be found. the only thing I didn't like was that it ended. I truly hope that there is another book after this one that continues the last 5 pages of the book. I truly must know! 



A Recommended Read to the readers of the Erotic Paranormal Romance Readers.

My Rating 5 Stars!





Character Interview:
Lawrence “Law” Justice
From “The Vampire, The Witch & The Werewolf: A New Orleans Threesome”


Where do you live?

The lovely and eclectic French Quarter in New Orleans

Where are you from?

Originally, I’m from France

How old are you?

In vampire years or human years? I was turned into a vampire when I was 31, and I’ve lived as a vampire for 150 years now. So total, that would put me at 181 years old, which I really don’t like to think about too much. At this age, does it matter?

What are you called? Nickname?

Law

How would you describe your looks?

I’m told that I’m quite pleasing on the eyes. Last time I looked, dark hair, light hazel eyes that change color depending upon my mood and what I’m wearing. Oh, and then I have these very sharp incisor teeth …

In Twitter Fashion use 140 characters or less, sum your personal ad for us. (If you were to have one)

Charismatic vamp seeks sensitive, sexy werewolf and fierce, fiery witch for extracurricular fun & companionship. Wait, I already have that.

What kind of childhood did you have?

Interesting question. For the time period, it was average. We weren't rich by any means, but we also didn’t want. My brother came to America first to learn a trade. When he and his family were struck ill with the plague, I crossed over to try to help, but unfortunately, it was too late.

What do you do for a living?

My partner Trevor and I run a new and used bookstore called Pages in the French Quarter. On the side, we help others with problems they may have.

How do you deal with conflict and change?

If it’s one thing that I’ve learned about life it’s that change will happen. Conflict? It all depends upon what type of conflict is happening. If it’s something that’ll threaten those I love, I’ll eliminate that threat.

Who else is in your life?

My partner is Trevor, a young werewolf. Recently, we met Lily, who came to us for help in finding out who she is. We’re hoping that Lily will stick around. And, if I was all- knowing and could see into the future, I’d hint that more would be coming into our lives fairly soon.

What are your hobbies and interests?

Simply living. Maybe it’s because I’ve seen so much of it, but I cherish history and old books. They transport the reader to another time period.

What is your most embarrassing memory?


Most recently, it’s being bested by a demon. Hell. No one gets the upper hand on me, and when I needed my strength the most, my defenses were down and I dropped the ball.

What was your first date like? How did you meet the person of your dreams? (if applies)

Ah, this question makes me smile. Trevor and I didn’t really have a traditional courtship. I saved him from a group of vampires, out seeking some blood-sport. After picking him up literally off the street, he followed me home like a good were-pup and stayed. But, that gives me a good idea. I really should take him out on a “date.” He might like that.

Actually, we’ve talked about taking our first vacation together in the near future.

Describe yourself--what is your best quality? What is your worst?

I’d say that my generosity and large heart is probably my best and worst quality. Once I let someone in my life, I’ll do anything to protect them. Even if that means harming someone else in the protection of my own. (Some may not see that as a fault.)

What did you ask for on your last birthday? What did you get?

New blackout drapes for the bedroom. I grew tired of the old colors, and I like to stay up with current trends. They need to be custom-ordered and made.

What is the one thing you wish other people knew about you?

Listen, this interview thing isn’t a common occurrence. I’m doing it as a favor, and Melissa with Weres & Vamps Romance promised me that only the community of The Others would read this information. The last interview/feature I did was on our bookstore Pages, and it dealt with nothing paranormal. That magazine article still brought Lily to our doorstep, so honestly, I’d rather people not “know” about me.

What is your biggest secret--the one thing you don't want ANYBODY to know?

I’ve never turned another person into a vampire. I’m not one of those tortured souls who doesn't like what I’ve become. I simply don’t want the responsibility of another soul. What if they turned bad? I would have to save someone, and then have to kill them.

What are you most afraid of?

Losing those that I love. As a vampire, one tends to outlive most others within your life. Seeing someone your close to die makes me feel incredibly vulnerable and sad.

Are we done here?
