Trinity and Jeff
by Kate Hill
GENRE: Erotic Paranormal Romance
Denying her love for her childhood friend, Jeff, Trinity visits her family’s ancestral land, believing the Wild family magic has called her there to meet her soulmate. Instead she finds danger at every turn, but she won’t have to face it alone.
Jeff has loved Trinity his whole life, but settled for friendship after she broke his heart on prom night. Now this soldier turned firefighter faces the supernatural to protect Trinity and convince her once and for all that they belong together.
She steered her car up the gravel driveway leading to the cabin. Her heart beat faster and her stomach lurched. As usual, she felt him — the familiar warmth of her oldest friend — as soon as she saw him.
“No,” she murmured. “I don’t believe this!”
She pulled her car next to Jeff, who stared at her from where he leaned against his motorcycle, his long, denim-clad legs spread wide and his muscular arms folded across his chest. His snug black T-shirt clung to his gorgeous, broad-shouldered torso. A slight summer breeze toyed with thick sable hair that hung almost to his shoulders. He’d just started growing a beard, so sexy dark stubble outlined his angular face.
Damn him. Why did he have to be so attractive? Would her destined mate look as good? Not that it mattered. Personality and integrity counted more than looks, but knowing that fueled her annoyance. Jeff was not only a fine physical specimen, but loyal, courageous, and in his own rough way, a genuinely sweet guy. Furious, she threw open the car door, stepped out, and slammed it behind her.
“What the hell are you doing here?” She glared at him, tapping her foot on the gravel. Her flip-flops probably made the motion more comical than intimidating, but she didn’t care. She was too angry.
“Trin, I’ll explain –”
“Damn right you will. You’ve always known about the family magic. You know why I’m here — to meet my soulmate. Jeff, you cannot be here.”
Where are you from? Tell us a little about yourself! I’m a vegetarian New Englander who loves romance novels and horror movies. I know that sounds like a strange combination, and it probably explains a lot about my work!
Tell us about your book? How did it get started? Trinity and Jeff is the third book in the Wild Witches of Beaver Bay series (it’s actually the second story chronologically). The hero and heroine were introduced in the first Wild Witches book, and I knew then that I wanted to write a story about them.
Trinity and Jeff have been friends since they were three years old, but during their teenage years, Jeff fell in love with Trinity. Though she loves him, too, she refused to give in to her feelings because people in her family are sometimes called to their soulmate through the Wild family magic. Trinity fears that if she becomes romantically involved with Jeff, her soulmate will appear and ruin everything. Jeff, on the other hand, believes he is her soulmate and he doesn’t need her family magic to tell them they belong together. He’s kept his desire in check for years, but trouble starts when another man appears who might be her soulmate or might be something far more dangerous.
How do you create your characters?
Characters can be inspired by various things. Usually I picture how they look and act first. Then I create a history for them. I get to know them by imagining them with me throughout the day. I think about how they would react to everyday situations, and then their personality really forms.
Where do you write? Is there something you need in order to write (music, drinks?) I write at my desk. To write, I need only a computer or pen and paper. Music helps me get in the mood during the first draft of a story. I also need few distractions when I’m writing.
What do you like to read? I love to read romance, especially paranormal, science fiction, and historical romance. I also enjoy horror and fantasy.
What would your advice to be for authors or aspiring in regards to writing? Know what you want from your writing. Measure success by your own standards and not by someone else’s. You’ll never please everyone, so you must ultimately please yourself.
Anything else you’d like to share? I would like to invite anyone who might be interested in my books to join my newsletter. I send one full newsletter each month, and short updates in between if I have a new release or a blog tour. Each month, one subscriber is chosen at random to receive an ebook of their choice from my available books. Thank you for hosting me today and thank you to your readers for stopping by!
