Last week we talked about Rhys and Amy of IMMORTAL DUTY. If you missed that post, check it out here.
This week I want to introduce you to Baron and Max, but first we'll talk about Baron.
Mmmmm. BARON SILVER.
He's one of my favorite characters...like...ever.
He blew onto the scene in the first book with a chip on his shoulder, a murky past, but lots of smiles and a cocky swagger that was completely irresistible. Book 2 wasn't even supposed to be Baron's book, but I couldn't help it, as soon as I dug into him a little deeper and got to know him, I had to write his story first.
Because the truth is, as much as he seemed like the bad boy, the one who hung out in clubs and went through women like "single ply tissue", Baron was hiding something ... besides the fact that he had become one of the Immortals ... and once I figured out what it was, I loved him EVEN MORE!
And Max...well, it's a good thing that Max is a strong woman, let me tell you. No other heroine would have been a good match for this guy. Maxine Devereaux has known Baron since they were kids, and doesn't take any of his shit. They have their own rocky past and she'd written him off a long time ago as a lost cause, but because of a promise made to his brother, she ends up tracking him down ... and her whole world gets torn apart by a vampire.
The story of Baron and Max has stuck with me ever since I struggled to get it all on paper. They are the couple that wouldn't leave me alone. I'm so very very glad that readers are able to know them!
IMMORTAL KISS, book 2 Immortals
It’s been two years since Baron’s initiation into the world of the Immortals, a task force who fight the demons hiding in the shadows of the human world. During those years, he’s been training hard and trying to forget. All in the name of setting aside his past to embrace the challenges of his new future…a future without Maxine Deveraux.
The last person Maxine wants to face is Baron Silver, the man her body and soul cry out for. But Baron’s brother is dying, and Maxine must honor his last wish.
A vendetta with a vampire doesn’t faze Baron…until the creature leaves Max on his doorstep, her beautiful body broken, her soul changed forever. Now Maxine must come to terms with her new dark nature—and if Baron wants to keep her, he’ll have to explain why he broke her heart.
