An Interview with Felicity Heaton
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio
HH: Felicity, thank you for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Crave and it's second in your Vampire Erotic Theater series. What can you tell us about the series for a start?
FH: It’s very hot. It’s a series about four vampires who have spent the past century running an erotic theatre together that caters exclusively to their kind. There are different levels of vampire in this world. The aristocrats are from families with pure blood, no turned humans in their ranks diluting their power, and they pride themselves on their purity and can be a little arrogant because of it. The elites are from families that have turned humans in them. Vampires are either turned humans or they’re born to vampire parents. Not many humans know that vampires exist, and most of those are either turned or they have been bitten and are now owned by that vampire. The four owners of the theatre are a mixture of elite and aristocrat, so they bring both sides of vampire society to the shows at Vampirerotique. They’ve been successful and their London based business is now the premier theatre in England, but they’re also all bachelors, too busy with work or too damaged from things in their past to entertain thoughts of falling in love. Against the backdrop of erotic shows, sensual decadence, and debauchery, they meet women who will do anything to capture their hearts.
HH: How did Covet kick off the series?
FH: Covet is the story of Javier, an elite Spanish vampire and one of the men responsible for coming up with the idea of Vampirerotique. He’s been secretly longing for an owned human female, Lilah, since she arrived at the theatre two years ago and he’s finding it increasingly difficult to resist her, even when the penalty for touching her is death. Lilah hates her master and never consented to become his. When she was shipped off to work at Vampirerotique and set eyes on Javier, she found herself falling for his exotic looks and caring nature. At the start of the book, Javier has been away with his family for a month to celebrate a wedding and Lilah has just broken the nose of the best performer at the theatre just a few hours before the show. It’s down to Javier to reprimand her, but when he finds her alone in a private box during the performance, he has other ideas.
It kicks off the series by introducing the theatre and the owners, and the whole world where the books are set, and I think it also sets the theme for the books and really gives readers an insight into what to expect from the series as it continues.
HH: How does Crave continue it?
FH: Crave really expands on the series even though a large amount of the book is set away from the theatre. Readers who have read the first book, Covet, will be able to enjoy this book more as they already know the world and this one builds on that but it’s more about the characters now that I’ve set the backdrop for the entire series.
Crave is Callum’s story and it’s packed full of passion and forbidden love, even more so than Covet. Some readers were shocked to discover that beneath Callum’s almost average exterior beats the heart of an alpha male. It’s that alpha side that Kristina, the forbidden female werewolf who has caught his eye, brings out in him, both allowing him to dominate her and controlling him in turns. He’s not just all alpha though and Kristina discovers that there’s an intense emotional side to this sexy vampire as they spend time together both between the sheets and around his hotel suite.
HH: What can you tell us about Kristina and how is she unique among your heroines?
FH: Kristina isn’t your average strong heroine. She’s very human and I think readers will be able to relate to her. She has a dark past and has been through a lot, and when she meets Callum she’s on the run from her pack because her alpha werewolf knows that she’s ripe for mating and wants her to bear his cub, even if it’s against her will. She doesn’t want to be controlled and dominated like that. She’s fiercely independent and able to make her own decisions, and she’s guarding her heart against everyone. She’s strong but she’s also afraid and alone, and doesn’t trust anyone. Callum draws all her pain out of her, making her feel safe for the first time in forever and just as he shows his vulnerable side, she does too, and learns to trust the one person she had never thought she could—a vampire.
HH: What can you tell us about Callum and why will readers love him?
FH: Like I said above, Callum hides a very alpha male beneath his exterior and Kristina draws it out of him, awakening his protective instincts and his desire to lay claim to her, but at the same time that more aggressive side is tempered by his emotional one. It’s that side that really speaks to Kristina. He’s strong and will do whatever it takes to win her heart, even if that means laying his on the line.
HH: What can you tell us about the stories to come in this series?
FH: I think everyone is very excited about the prospect of Snow getting more page time. Their patience will pay off in Seduce, the next book, as it’s Antoine’s story. Antoine is Snow’s younger brother by a thousand years and so far he’s come off as very distant and emotionless, but all that will change in Seduce. Seduce will be out on June 23rd and also introduces two new vampires to Vampirerotique—Andreu, who is Javier’s younger brother, and Payne.
Andreu’s story is Enslave, in which he meets his match in a succubus called Varya, and it will be out on August 4th. The fifth book in the series belongs to Payne and is entitled Bewitch, and the sixth book belongs to an ancient blood-crazed vampire, Snow.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
FH: Besides working on the Vampire Erotic Theatre series, I’ve just finished the next novel in my Vampires Realm series, Masquerade, which will be out in May and I’m writing the next novel in my best selling Her Angel series. Her Demonic Angel should be out in September.
HH: What sources of inspiration do you draw from for ideas?
FH: I draw inspiration from everything. Movies, television, books, music, and real life. There isn’t anything that I can’t get inspired by. I never really know where a lot of my ideas come from. Normally they pop into my head and I don’t think to trace their source. I just accept them with open arms and begin writing notes for them.
HH: What's your favorite book so far in 2012?
FH: I’ve only read 8 so far this year but I really enjoyed Dance with the Devil by Sherrilyn Kenyon and Pleasure Unbound by Larissa Ione.
HH: What are you most looking forward to in 2012?
FH: Oh, lots of things. I’m looking forward to reading more books in the series I’m in to at the moment, like Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series, Sherrilyn Kenyon’s Dark Hunters, and Gena Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld. In terms of writing, I’m looking forward to it all! I love writing and that’s why it’s so hard for me to find reading time. Now that my ear operation is out of the way, I can really get back into my work and crack on with my writing. I have some built in reading time this year though as I’m going on some fantastic journeys. One is a jaunt around Europe by train for almost three weeks, and the other is a three week trip to New Zealand. That is a lot of reading time!
HH: Thank you!
