LKF: CE3 - Provoked Lover by Zenobia Renquist

Provoked Lover
Caveat Emptor, Book 3
by Zenobia Renquist

Changeling Press

eBook ISBN: 978-1-60521-663-8
Genre: Erotic Romance, Paranormal/Fantasy, Interracial, BBW, Vampire

Sicily's emotions become confused when sex is the price of her vampire's protection.

After an attack leaves Theron's allies scattered, Sicily finds herself in the care of Lamon, a vampire who looks like he would rather kill her than protect her.

The unlikely pair must become very close -- sexual energy is necessary to disrupt the spell the mages are using to track Sicily.

Emotions become confused as their bodies entwine. Sicily finds herself falling for a man she can't have... or can she?





5 Little Known Facts About Caveat Emptor 3: Provoked Lover

#1 - Lamon was originally supposed to be named something else because I had planned to make him Japanese. Since I already had a story out with Changeling Press featuring a Japanese hero and planned to do another soon, I figured I should change things up and make Lamon a different race, specifically Thai. Why Thai? Well you have to read #2 to find out that answer.

#2 - Lamon's character is based on Paul Gunn who is a Thai model I discovered while watching a Showtime soft core porn called Sin City Diaries (no longer airing). If you've been keeping up with my LKF posts, you'll know he's not the only hero I've found by watching that show.

#3 - Sicily didn't get her current name until I started writing the third book. I knew she would get a book, and I knew she wouldn't be called "Sissy" in that book. I had to choose a name that could be shortened to "Sissy" and that I liked. Sicily made the cut.

#4 - I wrote the first chapter of Provoked Lover at the same time I wrote the last two chapters of Trapped Lover since the two books cross over each other. I had to make sure the two conversations matched exactly.

#5 - The continuation of Lamon and Sicily's story is contained within the pages of Caveat Emptor 3: Anguished Lover due out at Changeling Press on 09 September 2011.

I like the opposites attract aspect of the story. How is she supposed to come to terms with her feelings for a "monster" that could easily kill her. It sounds like a wonderfully complicated story.

I think my favourite line is that Lamon is "a vampire who looks like he would rather kill her than protect her." To me that just means he's attracted to her and is irritated by that fact :)

Stacie - Couples that are at odds in the beginning of the romance are always my favorite. They have more fun getting on each other's nerves. :P

Mara - Glad you enjoyed it.

Dawn - I hope you give the series a chance. Let me know what you think.

Robin - Thanks.

Na - Don't you just love when men try to deny their emotions? :D

Shiderly - You're welcome.

Carnation - You're welcome and thanks.
