Guest blogger Raine Delight

Welcome if you will author Raine Delight! She's bravely answered my infamous Rick Reed questions. Plus she's going to add to the Valentine's Day spirit with a little Red Hot Magic - Devon Falls style. So sit back and relax while she and I make ourselves comfortable on the beach and summon a handsome waiter to do our bidding. In the meantime, go ahead and answer the questions, Raine.

The Questions
1)     1) You’re marooned on a small island with one person and one item of your choice—who is that person and what item do you have?
RD: Oh man I can’t have two??? *begs prettily then pouts* Well if I can’t have two then I guess Johnny Depp or Gerard Butler would be my choices. Have to flip a coin to see which one though. *grins*
What I would have…my toy box. *winks* Hey I never said it was empty. :-:P
2)      2) Which musical would you say best exemplifies your life – and which character in that musical are you?
RD: Oh sweet god….*thinks a minute* maybe Phantom of the Opera….and I want to be Christine and NOT pick the good guy Comte….I would go for the Phantom…especially if it’s Gerard Butler like in the Movie. :-P
3)         3)  Take these three words and give me a 100 word or less scenario using them:  oxygen, organized, damage
RDR: Dante looked around as the spaceship jerked and the noises of explosions reached his ears. Checking his oxygen levels, he tried to get a sense of the damage the space pirates did to his ship, The Lucky Lady. Shaking his head, he got his thoughts organized and went to work.
4)        4)You’ve just been let loose in the world of fiction, with permission to do anyone you want. Who do you fuck first and why?
RD: Oh sweet bejesus….talk about a proverbial gourmet buffet here. *thinks* Well for an appetizer I would take Diana Galbadon’s Jamie from her Outlander series. Something about him just steals my heart….the Scottish accent helps as well. *grins* Then for main course….maybe a little Masters of Shadowland men…maybe Master Z and Master Cullen. Something about those Shadowlands men that leave me all hot and bothered. *fans face*
5)           5)What is your idea of how to spend romantic time with your significant other?
RD: I love going to dinner and maybe a movie, bowling or off to the arcade to play video games. *nods head* Yes I know not very romantic but it’s what we like.
6)            6)When you start a new story, do you begin with a character, or a plot?
RD: Actually I get snippets really of a story or I get a character just talking away in my head. Drives me nuts because then I have to figure out the beginning/middle/end part but I love it.
7)             7)If they were to make the story of your life into a movie, who should play you?
RD: *blinks and then claps hands* Really? Hollywood finally saw the box office appeal of my life. Ok now I have to think on this one…..maybe Drew Barrymore since I can be a bit quirky. J
8)              8)Who’s your favorite horror villain and why?
RD: *shudders* oh horror for me. I get nightmares on top of nightmares. LOL
9)               9) Do you have an historical crush and if so, who is it?
RD: *thinks* Um…..nope, not that I am aware of.
10      10)   Is there a story that you’d like to tell but you think the world isn’t ready to receive it?
RD: *grins* Not really…..though that may change. LOL

Now, let's get into the holiday spirit! Tell us a little something about Red Hot Magic.

Raven Demarco has sworn off men after one too many disastrous dates and soon begins dreaming of a mystery man who makes her feel things that she never expects to feel again. When the auction comes closer, her sensual dreams become more than she can handle and she finds herself wishing her dream man would show up and sweep her off her feet. What will she do when the man himself comes to claim her: Heart, body and soul?

Jean-Claude LeFever is a dream walker and has searched for years for his mate and finally found her in Raven. With his seduction of her in her dreams driving them wild, he makes sure to come to Devon Falls and make her his for all time as time is running out for him and their love. If she doesn’t fall in love with him by midnight, Jean-Claude is destined to walk the planes of dreams for the next hundred years before finding his love again. Can he be able to steal her heart and make her his for all time? Or will it be too late for them?

adult excerpt:

Soon it was time for the man of the hour. It seemed the energy in the room went up a hundredfold. The women looked as if they eagerly awaited a rock star.
Raven saw from the corner of her eye, Jenna smiling at Marc craftily. They were up to something, but what was beyond her grasp at the moment. Raven turned her full attention to the stage where the most magnificent man walked amid the catcalls and cheers, so supremely handsome that he took her breath away.
That chiseled face and those bright eyes…the rock-hard body in a tux tailored to look as if made just for him…the way he walked… sex on legs, all hot and molten.
God, when he turned around, the room went in a tizzy with screams. Man, did he have a nice, tight ass. Raven almost came right then and there when she thought about how her hands would feel holding on to those cheeks. It was a perfect ass in her opinion—perfect to grab, wrap her legs around, and never let go of.
The bidding started with a furious passion, and soon it soared over a thousand dollars.
“Go ahead, honey, bid on the man!” Jenna encouraged as she practically climbed out of her seat with excitement. “The dog is so cute, with its scrunched face. The colors are amazing on the Boxer. I know how you like that breed.”
Raven blinked. The man looked right at her from the end of the runway. Gulping quickly, she raised her paddle to bid twelve hundred dollars on him.
Before she knew it, she was in a bidding war with Hailey Meredith.
“Two thousand,” Raven called out.
The crowd roared as each bid went up even more.
“Two thousand five hundred!” Hailey’s voice called out.
Raven gulped and bid the last amount she knew she could afford and prayed as hard as she could, never taking her eyes off this man. “Three thousand dollars!”
The crowd groaned as no one bid again. As the gavel went down once…twice…three times, Raven almost fell off her chair in shock. The gavel rang down as sold…to her!
Stunned disbelief raced across her face as Jean-Claude came down the stairs, with Jeb. He looked at her and smiled a slow, sexy grin all too familiar…yet he was still a stranger.
Oh my god! I just won that sex god!

Raine’s Bio:

Raine Delight loves to be pampered by her harem of men that exist solely for her pleasure. Wait…..that was in a movie she saw. Hey, she can dream. J Raine loves to fight with her muse, attack her manuscripts and find a way to silence the many voices in her head. Inspiration hits at odd times and for Raine, a blank word document page gives her many possibilities on story ideas.  Living with her two kids, a significant other who supports her every move in writing and doesn’t seem to mind she gets up at 2 am to type away on the computer. With a love for Johnny Depp, movies and 80’s hair bands, Raine finds a way to bring all her chaotic thoughts into a story that tells her readers about love and romance.

Raine Delight is a pseudonym of a self-professed book lover and after one too many TSTL characters, decided to see if she could write something a little better. Well many drafts later, Devon Falls series came together. Check out my book pages to see what is going on with me. My muse is a male nut who likes to leave me to go sip mai tais on the beach and leave me foundering for words; though eventually he takes pity on me and gets my words flowing and characters start settling down.

Personal notes: I live with my own boytoy and two kids. I love Johnny Depp movies and enjoy hiking, reading and watching movies with my family.

  1. Nice interview, ladies.
    I particularly enjoyed Raine’s answer to a romantic evening. I agree, it’s those times when we can be ourselves with a person and know we are accepted and loved for who we are that makes the moment so strong and memorable.
