THE MIDNIGHT FIRE SERIES
"With one last look, one final search of the lines of his face for some sign, Kira turned and ran away from the sound of the man she loved laughing in the face of her death."
When Kira Dawson moves to South Carolina, she meets Luke, a blond goofball who quickly becomes her best friend, and Tristan, a mysterious bad boy who sends shivers down her spine. Kira knows they're keeping secrets, but when she discovers Tristan's lust for blood and her own dormant mystical powers, Kira is forced to fight for her life and make the heartbreaking decision between the familiar comfort of friendship and the fiery passion of love.
“The Lure of the Bad Boy”
Okay…let’s face it – bad boys are hot! The brooding, dark, tortured soul is something we girls can’t resist… but why? What is it really that makes these guys so irresistible? What is the lure of the bad boy?
In my opinion it boils down to one thing: excitement. Danger is exhilarating. Why else do we ride roller coasters or watch scary movies? We seek the thrill, the moment that your stomach catches in your throat and you’re reminded that life is fleeting. The danger makes you feel alive. And what girl doesn’t want a guy that makes her feel things for the first time? It’s downright sexy! Even the most well behaved girl secretly dreams of doing something crazy, of feeling the passion in recklessness.
But, most girls (myself included!) would never do these things in real life! In real life, the bad boy is a bad idea. They are misguided, mean and often beyond redemption. In real life, the bad boy is too dangerous, which is why we turn to books! There is no better way to live out a fantasy than to read a book. In a story, the bad boy can be saved – he is not a bad person, just a tortured soul waiting for someone to come along and see beyond his rough exterior. In books, the bad boy comes with a soft heart and the reader can be the one to save him. The danger is exciting, but it is also safe because we, the readers, know we can’t really get hurt. We get the sexiness of danger without the risk of heartache… can I just say, amazing!
In my Midnight Fire Series, I couldn’t resist including my own brooding bad boy. Tristan is definitely a tortured soul, a boy with a past he is running away from but can’t escape. He fights the rules, those of the humans and those of his own paranormal world, and he feels completely alone. He retreats into his artwork and pushes those around him away. Well, at least he did until my main character Kira comes along, but you’ll just have to read Ignite to learn more about that :)
I do have to say, I love the good guys too, which is why I love my other leading man Luke! And like my main character Kira, I’m sort of torn between who I like more… but that is another post for another time!
What are your favorite fictional bay boys? I’m sort of in love with Damon from Vampire Diaries, Will from Infernal Devices, and, the original bad boy, Rhett Butler from Gone With the Wind!

I've always been a writer. I grew up duct taping my novels together, started writing complete manuscripts in high school and studied creative writing at Johns Hopkins University. Upon graduating, I decided it was finally time to actually give my dream career a chance. So, of course, I started writing a young adult paranormal romance series - - and no, I'm not jumping on the bandwagon. I've been a true paranormal supporter for my entire life! I blame my obsession almost completely on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, my all-time favorite television show. And, before you ask: Yes, I own every season... even the post WB ones! I especially challenge anyone to watch the first three seasons and not fall in love with Angel, securing a lifelong love of vampires! Other culprits of my paranormal obsession are some of my favorite authors: JK Rowling, Raymond Feist, Meg Cabot, Richelle Mead, Lynne Ewing, Tamora Price.
