Welcome back, Selena!
She is back to talk a little bit about the book, and interview one of her characters, Lida Sandros.
An Interview With Lida Sandros
By: Selena Illyria
Selena Illyria here, in Capacious Cuppa a cute café here in Vampiropolis. Today I’m going to be sitting down with Lida Sandros, heroine from Discovering Passion, sister of Lucian from A Fling in Vampiropolis.
Lida: Who are you talking to? *Lida pulls out a chair and sits down*
SI: The readers.
Lida: Um, sweetie *Lida looks around* there’s no one here, it’s like four in the afternoon. Only writers and the wait staff here.
SI: Um, well the readers who will be reading this, that’s who I’m talking to.
Lida: Tell me you don’t hear voices.
SI: Ummm . . .
Lida: We’ll take that as a yes. Okay, I’ll play along. Hi readers, Lida Sandros here with Selena Illyria. So, you want me the hot seat? Here I am. Fire away.
SI: Okay, so, tell me a little about Xavier Hideo and your story. How did you two get back together after all these years? You were engaged correct?
Lida: *sigh* Xavier, I adore that man, got me the sweetest set of handcuffs . . . *Lida starts grinning*
SI: Li? *waves hands in front of Lida*
Lida: Sorry, what did you ask?
SI: Xavier, your renunion . . .
Lida: Oh, yeah, sorry. I knew Xavier from when I was little. Adorable bookworm, he wore glasses back then. So cute, in a geeky sort of way. We grew up together, fell in love and got engaged. His job got in the way and he broke it off with me. Recently we met up, loooong story, the fires got stoked and here we are.
SI: What about the armband of Hannibal, I hear that was a part of things.
Lida* narrows her eyes*: Just who are you? You don’t work for the Vamp Gazette do you?
SI: I’m a writer.
Lida: Uh huh, look, the armband is well . . . it’s complicated, can’t really talk about it. Would you look at the time! I gotta go meet Xavier at the Caribbean Queen, can’t be late. *Lida pushes back her chair, stands up and walks away quickly*
SI: Drat, well folks that’s all I could get sorry about that. If you want to know more, check out Discovering Passion, Out Now at Changeling Press.
Lida Sandros is tired of the hamster-wheel-of-love dating scene. She wants someone to settle down and cuddle with — that is, until her ex-fiancé comes to town. But is he back for her — or the artifact she’s been given?
Xavier Hideo has always regretted hurting Lida. Danger’s an occupational hazard, and he walked out rather than put her at risk. When his profession and love collide, he realizes he needs Lida. But can he convince her to take a chance on love?

Xavier groaned as he stroked his cock. Sweat beaded his skin. He was on fire and needed release. An image of blonde hair and pale green eyes refused to leave his mind. Lida, his mind whispered. He tugged on his balls as he increased the grip on his shaft. He missed her so much. He’d had to leave her. If she’d known the truth, she would have followed him. He refused to put her in danger like that. But he couldn’t forget her; her musky perfume, her long ash blonde hair that fell halfway down her back, her icy green eyes darkening with passion after they kissed.
He wanted to be with her now, to feel her body against his, feel her lips moving against his mouth. Fuck her until they both couldn’t move. Fingers of heat slid up and down his spine as he arched his back. His orgasm was close. His balls tightened against his body. That telltale tingle began as his cock twitched in his hand. A stream of pearly fluid shot in the air, landing on his chest, stomach and arm.
“Lida,” he groaned aloud. He continued to pump his cock until his balls were empty and only small dribbles slipped down over his hand. Panting, he opened his eyes, blinking several times to clear his vision. The scent of sex filled the air. As sweat cooled on his body, his heartbeat returned to normal and his breathing became even. He could hear sirens outside of his window. Shouts and swearing floated out into the night. He released his limp shaft and sat up. Throwing his feet over the side of the creaking double bed, he stood and padded toward the small bathroom of his motel room.
The sound of a shot being fired outside caused him to pause. “Ah, the Sensual District. It’s good to be home,” he muttered, before he continued toward the bathroom. He ignored the chipped and cracking mirror and sorry excuse for light that was being given off by the naked bulb, blinking on and off in its weak attempt to do its duty. He turned the knobs of the shower and stepped inside the small, one-person stall. He didn’t even bother hissing at the feel of the freezing cold water pouring from the showerhead.
He needed to push the thoughts of Lida out of his mind and focus on the reason he was in a rundown motel room in the seedier side of Vampiropolis’ Sensual District. He was here to make a deal and continue on his quest to find out more about the founder of Vampiropolis, Hannibal. He had only two hours to make contact with the seller, and his cousin, Dr. Aki Seiko, was looking for him. She had eyes everywhere. If she discovered what he was up to, she would swoop down and steal the prize.
He was after Badr’s Journal, the account of an expedition that had supposedly found the fabled Lost District, or Hannibal’s District. Aki had scoffed at the idea that Badr’s Journal would help them find the Lost District, but she hadn’t been laughing when they found the Armband of Hannibal, now on display at the Vampiropolis Museum. Aki was just as obsessed with the history of Vamp City, Vampiropolis’ nickname, as Xavier was. The only difference was that Xavier was willing to break the rules to get what he wanted, and Aki wasn’t, although she wasn’t above stealing right out from under him when it suited her…
