Sera has wanted Antoine since the night she first saw the gorgeous aristocrat vampire. She can't ignore the deep carnal hunger he stirs in her or the ache to know the heat of his touch. With the help of her sire, an ex-performer at Vampirerotique, she sets in motion a game of seduction, one designed to thaw the ice in Antoine's veins and make him burn for her.
When Sera discovers the shocking truth about his past and the darkness that lurks within him, will she be strong enough to seize his heart with both hands and win him forever or will she lose him to the ghosts that still haunt him?

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 Seduce and is part of your sizzling Vampire Erotic Theatre romance series. First, what can you tell of us this series' origins?
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: What can you tell us about the books that came before Seduce in 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.
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: How does Seduce continue the series?
FH: Seduce brings us back to the theatre and the erotic shows, and follows Sera as she sets out to unlock Antoine’s dark heart by seducing him. It’s a really intense and emotional romance because Antoine has a lot of dark things in his past, and in his present, and he’s battling bloodlust just like his brother Snow. He isn’t looking for love because all his focus is on maintaining a rigid sense of control over himself and looking after his older brother, helping him deal with his bloodlust. When Sera walks into his life, she awakens a lot of pain in his heart and he’s forced to face things that he has long avoided, as well as come to terms with the fact that he is attracted to her even though she’s an elite and he’s an aristocrat. His family bred rules into him regarding interacting with vampires below his notice, and he struggles to overcome them. Their romance is very deep, touching, and Sera draws all Antoine’s pain out of him and rewards him with so much pleasure.
HH: How is Seduce different from the other books in this series?
FH: It’s much longer for a start, and much darker because of Antoine’s secrets and the danger of his semi-dormant bloodlust. We also get to meet a much saner side of Snow, his older brother, and discover things about him too, and I know readers will love the fact he has more page time in this one. I think this book deepens the mood of the series but maintains the extremely erotic side of it at the same time. It advances the relationships formed in Covet (Javier and Lilah) and Crave (Callum and Kristina) too, giving insight into what’s been happening with them since their stories. Each of the books in the series are very sensual and erotic, but the first two dealt with forbidden love. Seduce deals with forbidden love in a way, but it’s more like Antoine has forbid himself from forming an attachment to anyone. It’s also the first book that features a vampire heroine. She isn’t the only new character either. In Seduce, we meet two new vampires, Andreu and Payne, who come to the theatre to cover for Javier and Callum.
HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?
FH: At the moment, I’m working on the final edit of Enslave, the fourth book in the Vampire Erotic Theatre series, which is due out on August 4th.
I’m also working on Her Demonic Angel, the highly anticipated fifth book in my Her Angel romance series. This book features Veiron as the hero and it’s as epic, action-packed, and emotionally charged as Her Guardian Angel, so expect a few tears when reading it. Her Demonic Angel is due out on September 15th.
HH: Where can readers find all of your works?
FH: Links, excerpts and information about all of my books are available at my website: http://www.felicityheaton.co.uk
All of my books are available for Kindle, Nook, Apple iBooks, Kobo, Sony and also a large number of my books are available in paperback.
HH: What goals have you set for yourself this year?
FH: My current goal is to expand my platform and make myself known to more readers so I can share my stories with them, and to slowly work towards a schedule that gives me more free time and a better balance. I would also love to win an award. I had wanted to achieve a best seller spot for one of my stories and feel I have managed that since my book, In Heat, reached the number 1 spot in Fantasy Romance books in the Kindle Store on Amazon.com. It was ranked around 150th out of over a million books. That was pretty awesome!
HH: What's your writing schedule like?
FH: At the moment, it’s pretty punishing. Actually, it’s always punishing, but that’s because I am completely indie and do everything myself, from writing the books, to producing the cover, to distributing it and marketing it. It’s very intensive and I often work around ten hours a day.
I’m editing two books at the moment. Enslave, the fourth Vampire Erotic Theatre series book, and Her Demonic Angel, the fifth Her Angel series book. I’m also planning Bewitch and Unleash, the final two books in the Vampire Erotic Theatre series, and also Hunger, which is the next Vampires Realm book. I’m always working on something but I do have a fantastic break to look forward to in November so there is some time off to look forward to while I work. I love writing and I just have so many stories to tell, and so many series to continue, that I could probably spend the next ten years writing five books a year and still not run out of ideas!
HH: What in person or online appearances will you be making this year?
FH: I don’t have any live appearances planned for this year, but I am touring some fantastic blogs with my books, including Seduce. The Vampirerotique Summer Book Tour kicks off on July 1st and runs until August 31st. It covers both Seduce and the next release in the Vampire Erotic Theatre series, Enslave, which is due out on August 4th. It also covers the first two books in the series, Covet and Crave. There are over 30 stops on the virtual book tour, and readers can win prizes at every stop, and follow the tour to enter a fantastic Grand Giveaway!
HH: When you're not reading or promoting you like to_____?
DS: Watch TV (The Vampire Diaries, Lost Girl, True Blood, Game of Thrones in particular), garden, play with my cat, draw, and think about writing, working or anything else related to my books.
HH: Thank you!
