Heaven and Hell by Kayden Claremont

Please join me in welcoming Kayden Claremont to Discover Yourself. 
Thank you for having me visit your blog today, Brenda.

Tell us a little about your new book.
Hell’s Bounty is the first book in my Heaven and Hell series. It is a paranormal erotic novella, and it’s published by The Wild Rose Press.
Raven Hart, a succubus bounty hunter for Hell, is on a hunt. With her query in sight, she hits a brick wall, or rather the very hard chest of a giant sexy man. She might have lost the prize for now, but she's a winner when the hottie wants to get physical. Marcus Dionysius, a Nephilim working for Heaven, has one mission—to prevent Hell’s beauty from stealing souls meant for the higher plane. But he soon realizes he’s met his sexual match. She’s naughty enough to tempt his senses, but her innocence means he can’t walk away when she needs him most. Working together to discover who’s snatching souls.

What were you like when you were in school?
Oh, this is such an easy question. I was a geek. I was the girl in the library doing research for projects or just reading. Not sure how I ended up marrying the captain of the football team, but it’s still working out.

What was the last movie you watched?
The November Man with Pierce Bronson. It was a great story...and it had Pierce Bronson in it.
What is your favorite quote?
Live, Love, Laugh. That sums up my life.
Was there any particular inspiration for your characters or story?
This is a funny story. I was sitting in a coffee short working on a romantic suspense story when two men sat down beside me. They were talking about how their wives suck the life out of them, and they were trying to outdo one another so the stories became interesting. Before I knew what had happened, I had a scene where the character literally sucked the life out of a sleazy politician. 
Years later, I was in a critique meeting and we were talking about the weirdest scene we’d ever written. I told my friend about this scene and they both said, “That’s a succubus.” I went home and looked it up and sure enough they were right. I liked the character so much I built the book around her.
She’d never liked Stephen, but she didn’t want a new partner. Especially not Marcus Dionysius, the giant who had taught her the true meaning of animalistic lust.
            Even though he stood a distance away, she could smell his raw sexuality, and her libido kicked in. Damned, she couldn’t afford to react like a silly schoolgirl. She was sure he hadn’t recognized her. All she had to do was control her sexual urges and act normal around him.
The captain glared at her as if he read her lusty thoughts, and she turned away from him, watching the floor.
He faced the group of detectives. “Let’s get out there and keep the citizens of this fair city safe.” He hurried away before she could get to him.
Raven walked over to her desk and sat down, wondering what she should do. She’d been trying to talk to the captain for the last few days, but he had been locked behind closed doors and she knew he was avoiding her. Grabbing her phone, she pretended to call her informants, but all she wanted to do was get the captain alone and demand that he tell her what in hell was going on.
Marcus approached her desk. His scent made her breasts ache for his touch and her sex hot and juicy. “Detective Hart?”
 He held a file in his enormous hand, and she yearned for the pure bliss those fingers had given her last night. Desire grew deeper inside her body.
Marcus pointed to the file he held in his hand as he cleared his throat. “Nothing like a stiff to make Saturday night special.”
Raven watched the dark humor shining in his angelic eyes, and her clit stiffened. “That’s what I always say.” She stood on shaky legs, grabbed her leather jacket from the back of her chair, and followed him out of the squad room. Waving at the desk sergeant as they walked past, she followed Marcus out of the precinct station, his scent driving her wild.

  1. Oh, those guys in the coffee shop who gave you the inspiration for writing a succubus, that is too funny!!! Didn't you want to just reach over and pinch those guys, though?
    Loved the excerpt, especially the part about her clit. Hmmm, I could see where a succubus would have a male reaction like that, too cool!!! Makes me think of that program, "Lost Girls," is it? Very interesting.

  2. Enjoyed the interview - best wishes for success!
