Interview with Lani Rhea

Thank you very much, Bonni, for allowing me to take over your blog today! 


   Rising Currents’ Book One, Louisiana Moon, is a paranormal erotic romance with a touch of urban fantasy and suspense. Plus, it’s packed with action!!! That’s right, action! I kept action in my mind the entire time I wrote the story. I was always trying to figure out what kind of dilemma to push my characters through while on their journey.

Though Louisiana Moon will not release until Nov. 5th with Lyrical Press, I’ll be gracious enough to give you fine readers an insight to the story…


 Wanted: Royal blood. Bounty: An action packed, sexy, suspenseful tale. 

After losing her parents to vampires, werewolf Kristina Knight spends her life protecting humans from the bloodsuckers. Saving Darin James from the Truce Brotherhood adds fuel to the vampire coven's wrath. When Ryant Starga, her former lover, appears under the pretext of protecting her, Kris isn't ready to trust him again--especially not after he made his choice clear years ago. 

As leader of the vampires, Ryant is driven to protect Kris not only because of their past connection but because, now, the Soulscapes are out for her blood. If they succeed, the soul demons will rule the Darkworld--and no one will ever be safe. Ryant has a plan to convince Kris she needs his protection, but it all goes badly awry when, in spite of the years separating them, he's unable to keep his hands and mind off her--or the human Darin James out of the picture. 

With Darin overstepping boundaries, will Kris and Ryant rekindle their love only to lose it again?

Warning: Vampires, werewolves and humans--oh my!


Sound like something you would like?...I thought so. *grin* Now it’s time to read deep. Absorb the scene Kris is going through.



Her jaw worked, and her nostrils flared. “I hate you.”

Pain, the emotional variety, shot through his chest to the area she’d bit. “Good. This should make you want to get the job over with faster.” Ryant looped a finger over the loosened knot of his tie and tugged the knot undone. The fine silk draped his neck.

“Why on earth would I help you or any other blood-sucking bastard after what happened to me…to my mom and dad?” Her voice cracked with agony the words produced.

“I told you before. Vampires did not kill your parents.” He pulled the strip of silk free from his neck and tucked the material into his back pocket.

“Every thread of evidence pointed at your kind.”

“My kind… had no hand in the murders. I will defend them to my dying breath.”

“That may not be too far off if you don’t get the hell out of my house.”

Pushing off the frame, he stood in a wide stance. Tilting his head, he studied Kris down the length of his nose. She’d never bowed out from an argument. He traced his tongue across the elongated points of his fangs, aroused by the sexual tension which thrummed through his body. Her feistiness and defiance had always been his undoing.

“I told myself when I came face to face with the infamous Mr. Launders, I would tear out his throat. Your minions have been calling and showing up at my office for weeks. Hounding me for weeks. In your name--on your command. You’d better keep a leash on your pet monsters. Stop wasting my time. If any of your minions harass or stalk my clients, I’ll stake their asses.”

“I’ll pass the word around when I go back. Thanks for the warning.” Ryant paused, started to speak again, but let her heated remarks dangle in thin air. Then a thought accord, some passion toward him had to stir somewhere inside her or he’d be dead by now. The image he had seen playing in her mind proved that much. But whatever desire remained in her, bitterness tainted it.

Inside, he laughed a harsh regret. She still held vampires responsible for the death of her parents. She’d turned from the truth, believed only what she wanted. Stubborn and resistant, his Kris hadn’t changed.

Her heartbeat sped a notch faster with the strength of her convictions. Even her hate was preferred over her indifference.

So, my minions say you, the reader, wants something for free. Am I right? I’ll give away two signed Under Bonded Contract bookmarks. Leave any questions, comments or whatever along with your email. I’ll respond. In a few days I’ll contact two of you.
