Weston College freshman Leesa Nyland has been fascinated by vampires since she was three years old. That's when her mom started acting weird, insisting sunlight hurt her skin because she'd been bitten by a one-fanged vampire.
But fascinated doesn't mean Leesa believes. Any more than she believes in blue fire, people who live for centuries, and kisses that can kill. But when her beloved older brother suddenly disappears, she is forced to consider all these and more. She also has to figure out what to do about her mysterious new boyfriend. She knows Rave likes her a lot--so why won't he kiss her?
As Leesa draws closer to finding her brother, she faces some gut-wrenching decisions. Should she risk her mom's life trying to "cure" her? Should she continue seeing Rave, after he reveals his dangerous secret? And most terrifying of all, should she make the ultimate sacrifice-give up her humanity-to save her brother?
Breahtless is an interesting and unique take on the world of vampires. This is a Y/A novel but will appeal to all lovers of paranormal romance ♥
Lessa Nyland does not have pleasant memories of her childhood. Her mother had claimed that she was bitten by a one fanged vampire *I told you this was unique!* and it wasn't long before she started to seclude herself from the world and from the people she loved. Leesa's brother always took care of her and was the one person she could count on and look up to through those years. When he suddenly comes up missing Lessa takes matters into her own hands. She applies to the same college that her brother had been going to when he disappeared. She wanted to do some investigating find out why her brother seemed to drop off the face of the planet.
It's not long before Lessa is introduced into an extraordinary and mysterious world full of vampires and volkaanes.
I easily fell in love with all of the characters in Breathless. Scott made me feel like I knew each one personally. *The good, the bad and the sexy* ;) Scott's descriptive writing style took me on a fun, romantic and mysterious journey that I will not soon forget! If you're looking for an entertaining and unique story line that is fun for all ages, then you will be absolutely delighted with Breathless!! ♥
Can you tell us a little about yourself?
types, golf and hiking. I’m one of the few people in the United States without a cell phone.
I’m single (but looking!). I recently took early retirement from a career in health education and preventive
wellness to concentrate on writing.
I’m the author of the three books in the paranormal romance series The Blue Fire Saga (Breathless, Deathless, and Helpless) as well as two mystery/suspense novels available in (Unturned Stones and Tangled Webs). I’ve also written a teen romance Mine: A Love Story, whose plot is based on the hit songs of Taylor Swift, and a fantasy adventure novel called Dreams of the Last Born.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
What surprised you the most about the writing and publishing process?
What, in your opinion are the most important elements of good writing?
What is the toughest criticism you've received as an author?
In Twitter fashion, use 140 characters or less, sum up Breathless for us.
Could you tell us what was your favorite scene to write?
How did you come up with the character Rave?
Was there anything you found particularly challenging while writing this book?
What were your feeling when you first saw the cover of your finished book?
I was very involved in the cover creation, so I knew what it was going to look like every step of the way. Still, seeing it complete for the first time was a thrill.
Can you tell us a little about your current work?
I’m currently writing Fearless, which will be book four in my Blue Fire Saga.
Is there anything else you would like the readers to know?
I want them to know how accessible I am to them. I love to interact with fans on Facebook, especially, either through my personal page, my Scott Prussing Author page, or Breathless Fampire Page. I also love using the names of my biggest fans and supporters in my books.
JUST FOR FUN :)
What is the last movie you went to see?
Safe House… it wasn’t that good.
What is the next book you can't wait to get your hands on?
There really isn’t one. I walk to the library every week or so and just see what I can find. But if I HAD to pick something, I’d say the final book (book 14?) in Robert Jordan’s Wheel of Time saga. I have over ten thousand pages of reading invested in it. Unfortunately, there are two more books to go, so I have a long wait.
Pilates or potato chips? ;)
Biking or Hiking?
Biking… but I like hiking, too.
When you're not writing, what do you like to do on your free time?
Go to movies, ride my bike, golf, read, hike, drink.

I used to hate both. I still don’t like conflict, but since I’ve gotten to school and made some cool friends and found an awesome boyfriend, I’m getting better at handling change. Which is a really good thing, because all kinds of weird things have been happening since I got here.
