Jen: Today we welcome Decadent Kane to Romancing the Book. Decadent, will you please share a short bio with us?
Decadent: Decadent Kane, author of the trouble with elves series, writes paranormal romance with heat. She lives in Wyoming with a full house: 3 dogs, 1 cat, 1 guinea pig, 1 rat, 2 kids, and 1 fiance.
An elfess in human form, Decadent enjoys dipping her fingers into the human realm where she took pen to paper and began the tales of the trouble with elves. Her obsessions include reading, Dean Winchester, and honey.
She will devour your soul with glimpses of the feral ridden drow elves, with their dark skin and soul consuming. She’ll sneak morsels of naughty thoughts to you via goblins, and seduce you into stepping inside the elven realm where females disappear when lust takes over among other elfish troubles.
Beware the sprites.
Follow the wisps.
But never look a drow elf king in the eyes…
Jen: Please tell us about your newest release and where the idea came from.
Decadent: My newest release, Impure Bargains, is a brand new series set around demons and a mythos of Ba’al. It includes magic, imps, witches, and more. It’s a fight for my leading lady’s soul and heart as she tries to free herself and her brother from the clutches of hell.
Surprised by the female’s actions, Desiderus watched her run for a moment before his mind registered her actions. Her obsidian hair flew behind her with a strange bag slung over her small shoulders. In a way, he should have known Haven would bolt. Experience all but told him that. Many had run and failed. Desiderus shook his head and a grin spread across his lips. She wouldn’t get far and not just because she was naked. He had a pretty good idea that Haven didn’t worry about her loss of clothes as much as she worried about what he might do to her. He would have loved nothing more than to chase after her…but she needed to be taught a lesson, to understand what it meant for him to have her name, for him to be in control.
After quickly making Ba’al’s sign in the air in front of him, a toad with a circle, magic flickered into the sigil like sparking a match. The sign brightened to an orange color. Desiderus had been a demon so long it took seconds to create. Under his breath, he let her name roll off his tongue in one easy motion, “Haven Rowe.”
The color of the sigil sprinkled away on a breeze and black smoke swirled. Haven’s image slowly began to appear, little by little, tantalizing, as if she somehow knew he wanted her body, far more than he had any other mortal female. Her legs came first, the lazy curve of her hips, he groaned with the swell of her heaving breasts, and finally her face construed in a perfect scowl piercing him with those damn blue eyes.
“Running will do you no good, Haven.” Inside lust coiled around his core, urging him to do anything but stand there looking staring. Her skin shimmering with sweat, making his tongue slip out to lick his lips. He swallowed a groan at the thought of tasting her tanned flesh. Lost in his erotic notions he didn’t see her foot until it was too late and a sharp jolt of lightning like pain raced up from between his legs, shooting over his spine and slamming into the base of his brain. Colors formed in his eyes and he blinked it away as his stomach churned. His knees weakened, but he kept himself standing somehow, adrenalin replacing the pain as anger mounted inside him like a lion.
“But that does demon.” Haven turned to run for the second time and despite the throbbing radiating from his balls, Desiderus reached out for her, latching fingers around an ankle that had come up from the ground and Haven fell front first into the dirt with Desiderus falling on top of her.
Jen: Are there any other writers, published or not, in your family?
Decadent: My mother wrote poetry, on the side. She wasn’t big on writing really, just enjoyed making poems from time to time and hand written letters. Other than that there are none that I know of.
Jen: Describe your writing in 3 words.
Decadent: Imaginative, sexy, and indulging
Jen: Who are some of your favorite authors? What are you reading now?
Decadent: Favorite authors: Kresley Cole, Christine Feehan, and Gena Showalter. But I also love many indie authors like Jen Bradlee, Torie James, Elise Faber, Christine Rains, Brantwijn Serrah, and many more.
Jen: How do you come up with characters names?
Decadent: I am a huge fan of name generators online. They provide so much inspiration and so do the baby naming sites. I keep a journal list just for names I like and when it’s time to name a character and their name doesn’t come to me right away I choose something off that list and cross it off because I’m not a fan of using the same name twice.
Jen: What do you do in your free time?
Decadent: I do many things in my free time including playing video games like Skylanders and Soul Calibar. I’m a fan of button mashing. *Winks* I also work as a freelance editor under my real name.
Jen: What’s next for you?
Decadent: Next- Book to in the Impure series. Which will continue to follow Haven and Desiderus.
