EXCERPT:

“Justin, maybe I should leave. I mean… If I am making you that angry…”

“You are not making me angry. It’s the situation…not you,” I said. “Tell me something. When you…I mean, did you really mean it when you said you loved me?

“Yes Justin. I loved you. I still love you.”

“But how? What can I possibly mean to you? I mean, Jesus! You are…you are… I don’t know! What I am trying to say is, what can I possibly do for you?” I was stuttering.

“I do not understand what you are asking me,” she stated.

“Ambra, this is not a normal relationship. I usually know where I stand with a woman, but I have no clue what I can offer you.

“Justin, you have given me what no one else ever has. Unconditional love. You made me feel special, wanted, needed and loved. And I did not make you do it. I never once influenced your mind to make you treat me that way. It was something I had never experienced before. I wanted simply to be with you. Nothing more, nothing less.”

“And the fact that I am not what you are… doesn’t bother you? I feel like I would be a liability, an accident waiting to happen, a burden…”

“Why? Because you are a man and not a monster as I am?”

“Because you are stronger than me. I can’t protect you from harm, not that anything can harm you really, but I am used to being the strong one.” I said, looking down.

“So this is what is bothering you? That I am not some weak, frail woman for you to save?”

“No. Not exactly, but you are close.”

“Justin, I am beyond saving. You cannot change what has happened to me any more than I can. I have learned to accept what I am because the alternative is to stop living. And since I met you, I do not want to stop living. I only wish you could love me, as you did.”

I looked over at her and thought about it. Yes, I was angry. And the thought being without her this past year was enough to drive me mad. But, under all the rage and embarrassment, under all the pain and sadness was the undeniable fact that I loved her. I turned back to the fire and smiled to myself.

“Okay. So… Like, you’re a vampire. Correction. A beautiful, stunning vampire. And I am, well… I am a not so bad looking guy, and… God! This is the really funny part. But I am hopelessly in love with you,” I rambled. There was silence behind me for a moment. The crackle and spit of the fire was all I heard.

“Justin… What are you…”

AUTHOR INTERVIEW:


1. How did you come up with the title of your book?
    When I finished, I struggled with a title for a while. Then, someone asked me what the book was about and it hit me. Ambra has an indiscretion with a mortal man. There came the answer. A Mortal Indiscretion.

2. Tell us a little bit about your cover art. Who designed it? Why did you go with that particular design?
    I used a graphic designer from ProEbook covers. She did an awesome job.  I did not want faces of the main characters featured because I hoped to leave it to the readers imagination what Justin and Ambra looked like.  Although my book is a romance, I wanted to appeal to a broader audience. I intended to focus on the story. So, I decided to go along with a moon theme for the entire series. The blood moon fit for the vampire aspect and their hot, love affair.

3. Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
    Although I love Justin and Wolf, Ambra is my favorite character. She is so unusual in the fact that she is almost innocent, if you can call her that being a vampire. She never wanted to be one. She was dealt a bad hand and made the best of her situation. She is strong, resilient and a survivor. She is also extremely beautiful and humble about it. She has lived a very long time and rises above every challenge. Add to that the fact that she has Justin madly in love with her.

4. How about your least favorite character?
    Believe it or not, it is not the main villain. It is Ambra’s father. When she came to him for help, for support, he turned away from her and cast her out of their home. It was a hard scene to write.

5. How can we contact you or find out more about your books?
    I love hearing from readers. I have a monthly newsletter that I put out, with contests and release information. I am looking for advance readers. I also am on social media. Please feel free to connect with me.

6. What can we expect from you in the future? What are you working on now?
    I am currently working on the third book in this series, called Zeus. It is an epic tale, involving time travel back to Ancient Greece and Rome. I hope to have it available for release this year. I will keep on writing for as long as I am allowed.

7. What can readers who enjoy your book do to help make it successful?
    Leaving a review makes all the difference in the world. Being an indie writer has its perks, but being recognized by Amazon and other venues is not one of them. They base your books ability on the number of reviews. Even if it is a simple, ‘I liked it.’  I write because I love it. Any bit of help is very appreciated.

8. Do you have any tips for readers or advice for other writers trying to get published?
    Never give up. If you truly want to write, do it. Don’t let mean reviews hurt you. You cannot and will not please everyone. Every great novelist has bad reviews. Even though they hurt, you must keep going.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Barbra E Ross lives in Michigan and is a nurse by day, lover of fiction at night. When people ask me what my book is about, I pause a moment because it is not so simple to describe. It is a vampire romance, I say and then, I pray that doesn’t scare them away. Because what are books really? I believe that books are a way to escape the daily routines of life.

I wanted to take an ordinary man and put him in fantastic situations. To bring a bit of fantasy down to reality. It is a love story at its heart. If I can take the reader on a journey and give them a laugh, cry, or simply bring a smile to their face, then it is all worth it. This story helped me through rough times in my life, and I can only hope it will do the same for the reader.
