Interview with the MEN of The Redemption Series
by Lindsey Gray
Hello all! Lindsey Gray here talking with some of the men of my paranormal romance series, The Redemption Series. Usually, these guys come to chat one by one, but today they all wanted to sit down and give me the down low on what their story is so far.
LINDSEY: Hi guys!
Guys: Hey Lindsey!
LINDSEY: I’ll start off with letting you all introduce yourselves. Who wants to go first?
Abe: I will. I’m Abe North. I’m a Shadow Walker and I worked in Boston for The Manchester Group. Now, I’m here in New York City living with the rest of these knuckleheads.
LINDSEY: * looks at the rest of the guys shaking their heads *
Nathaniel: Yes, that would be because of me. I’m Nathaniel Archer and I’m a . . . well, I’m a psychic. They are all living in my house because we’ve deemed it the safest at the moment. Now, I can’t get rid of them.
Liam: He’s lying. He loves having us there after being a shut in for years.
LINDSEY: Hi there, Liam.
Liam: Hello, pretty lady. * licks lips *
LINDSEY: Hey now, it’s not dinnertime and I’m not on the menu.
Liam: No offence. I’m still getting used to this vampire thing. Most of the time I don’t have any problem drinking animal blood. Certain people give off such tantalizing smells, I have a harder time controlling myself.
LINDSEY: Keep trying. I still want to talk to Ryan. * turns to look at Ryan *
Ryan: Hello again, Lindsey.
LINDSEY: We’ve had some really good talks you and I.
Ryan: Indeed. You’ve captured a great picture of me and my life as an Angel of Death.
LINDSEY: Oh, I think there are still a few things left to be revealed. * looks at the four of them as a whole, then turns to Abe * Looks like you are in charge today, Abe. How has it been sharing a body with Ian?
Abe: * blows out a large breath * It has been interesting to say the least.
LINDSEY: In the second book of the series, Revisited, you and Ian end up sharing his body. What has been your biggest challenge?
Ryan, Liam, and Nathaniel: Becca!
Abe: * shakes head * She’s been a challenge. Both Ian and I love her and we know she loves both of us. She’s having a hard time being herself with either one of us because she knows the other can see and hear everything that is going on.
LINDSEY: I can see where that would be a hindrance. I’ll see what I can do to clear things up.
Abe: Thanks. We’d appreciate it.
LINDSEY: So, Liam. You’ve finally become a vampire, but things haven’t really gone the way you planned, have they?
Liam: Not at all. Being used as a pawn in Filipp’s game was not what I had envisioned. I’m thankful we got out of there.
Liam: Yes, we. You know who I mean, you wrote it.
LINDSEY: I know, but you need to explain it to the readers.
Liam: Right. So, Filipp was an ass bent on dominating the vampire race. He wanted to combine my family’s vampire bloodline with that of a powerful witch. Before I became a vampire, I gave him sperm samples and he ended up using them to get Valentina pregnant.
LINDSEY: Something happened when you and Valentina met, right?
Liam: Yes. The baby didn’t affect us the way Filipp planned. The baby brought us together as a couple. We are actually getting married before the baby is born.
LINDSEY: Congratulations! I have a feeling it will be an interesting wedding. * winks at Liam * So, where does this leave the rest of you?
Ryan: * coughs and fidgets in his chair * Well, Lily is ecstatic about the baby, but she’s holding something back. We’ve made a lot of progress in the last few months, but there is still something she won’t give up and I haven’t been able to work it out of her yet.
Nathaniel: And boy how he’s tried. The walls in my house are thick, but not thick enough with the two of them going at it all the time.
Ryan: * punches Nathaniel in the arm * We’re making up for lost time. We were apart for over a hundred years.
Nathaniel: That old chestnut. * rolls eyes *
LINDSEY: So, you’re all living in Nathaniel’s house in New York City, preparing for a wedding and a baby. What about Filipp? Any progress on finding him?
Ryan: Nathaniel had a few visions that have given us a bit of direction, but we are still looking for him.
Nathaniel: Debir and Mr. Ore seem to think it is just a matter of time.
LINDSEY: I see, but what do you think?
Nathaniel: * swallows hard * I think we haven’t seen the worst yet.
LINDSEY: * feels pressured * I guess we will have to wait and see.
That was about all I could take of that lot all at once. For more from the Men of the Redemption Series, read Redemption and Revisited.
